Our initial project was changing our bungalow roof and ceiling into an A-frame cathedral ceiling with 4 skylights on the main floor. Naturally, we had a budget and asked multiple companies we had connections with to quote based on our architect's drawings. Some of the quotes we got were outrageously high and exceeded any budget plans we had in mind. We were also told a project of this scope would be very difficult and complicated and take months to complete!
Then we tried HomeStars and Vo from Annex Homes responded promptly with a quote, came by, told us it would be no problem, would be done in 2 weeks, and was excited about the project and quoted very reasonably and within our budget.
We were hesitant at first when looking through the perfect 5-star reviews - I thought maybe there was some catch. After Vo and his crews finished with the ceiling in a week as planned, doing more than we initially scoped out (not even charging us anything extra!), I was still waiting to see what the catch would be. Then with our leftover budget, we decided to redo our entire kitchen, foyer, hallway, a fireplace surround, painting most of the upstairs, and yet still no catch! Now his crews are helping finish a basement which another contractor ruined and abandoned. I'm still trying to figure out why Vo is so nice to us :)
Vo is a blessing in disguise and if he's not too busy to take on your project, you will not be disappointed. It was fun working with him and he quickly becomes a friend. It's hard to find honest, reasonably-priced yet good quality people to work with in this industry who genuinely want to help you realize your dream renovation or build without losing your shirt, and I can only hope a cloning machine is invented soon so I can make a few more Vo's for our future reno ambitions and so the original Vo can finally get some rest ;)
