I can't say enough great things about Reza and Borj Construction - they are probably the most honest, hardworking contracting team I have ever come across, and I have done 4 renovations. They are an amazing team of clean, conscientious, incredible problem solvers. I hired them to do a "to-the-studs" renovation on a Victorian, and the price was so competitive that I was a bit nervous. Reza was patient with my changes (and there are always changes when you rip a whole house apart) and he made great suggestions for how to make things both functional and beautiful. He respected the architecture of the house while making sure I had super sound mechanicals, almost invisible HVAC and plumbing and as much natural light in every room as possible. Because he has a background in building engineering, Reza knows all of the building codes. His finishing work is terrific, and he can work a trick with mouldings and baseboards. The best part? On budget, and on time. I was thrilled (and a little shocked, frankly) that I was within 5% of my original budget, and into my house early.
As in any renovation, you have that moment of utter panic. I had it for about 30 seconds, and then stopped by the house on a sunny Saturday to see them doing trim work so that they could finish the job.
The best part of this, for me anyhow, was that I really got the feeling that Reza is proud of the work that he does, and that's probably why he's so good at it. He really cares about what the finished product looks like. If you hire him you are in good hands. I'd hire him again in a heartbeat.
