After talking with 3 companies my wife I determined that we just felt more comfortable with Opus.
They were easy to communicate with. We liked they had offices in the city where a lot of companies did not. They employ all of their own trades - which was a big deal to us because they actually knew the people that were in our home. RJ met us personally (which we really appreciated) and even pulled in a specialty manager in for our project from one of their other markets.
The easiest way to explain it is they operate almost like an institution when it came to documentation, analytics, follow ups with the city and our project progress reports.
This is not to say there wasn't problems or bumps during the project. But like I read on other reviews about Opus before we hired them. It was the way Opus handled the problems and came up with solutions and not excuses.
Opus is definitely the best construction company we have dealt with in the last 25 years as a business and homeowner.
They are the gold standard. Would definitely recommend and hire again.
