We engaged Pavel and Novacon to add a ground floor addition, larger second story addition as well as a complete demolition and renovation of the second story.
We talked to many different contractors before deciding on Pavel but were immediately attracted to his management approach and easy going attitude. Pavel provided us with a detailed proposal and payment schedule that outlined every aspect of the job, it's timing and it's cost. Any changes to the proposal were managed through formal change requests so that at all times we knew the status of the work, it's cost and schedule. Through the course of a 7 month renovation there was rarely a day when we weren't in touch with Pavel and at no time were we left wondering what was happening with our home.
Any time we encountered unforeseen issues Pavel notified us right away, explained the issue and presented us with options. If we asked for recommendations, Pavel would tell us his opinion but at no time did we feel pressured to do work we weren't comfortable with or to expand the scope of the job.
Despite some serious delays at the beginning of our job (we got caught by several weeks of extreme and uncharacteristic rain fall) our renovation was only a month beyond schedule and was finished on budget. We're overjoyed with the quality of the work and have no regrets whatsoever about undertaking the renovation. We would happily recommend Pavel and Novacon to anyone considering work on their home.
