Our experience with E&S Builders has been nothing short of amazing. Deciding to renovate an old 1970’s Paradise Valley ranch home, we heard horror stories from friends about shady contractors, ballooning budgets and protracted timelines with other contractors. Therefore, we anticipated a nightmare. However, our experience with E&S was nothing like this. In fact, it was one of the most well planned, thoroughly thought out, and gratifying experiences.
After interviewing several builders for our gut renovation, we hired E &S Builders in the Spring of 2019. From the very beginning, we were struck by their incredible level of professionalism and focus on detail. Our contractor, Jason Easterly, was fantastic. When he came into our home for the first time, he not only listened to our needs and requests, but unlike a lot of other contractors we had interviewed, he offered innovative solutions to optimize the project and improve the resulting functionality and aesthetics. Jason was not afraid to offer his honest opinion based on years of experience in the field. Based on his expertise, we were well guided in making sound decision weighing all the risks and benefits throughout the project.
Jason foresaw nearly every eventuality, complication, and potential hurdle. There was really nothing that he didn’t plan for or have a contingency plan for if it were to happen. The actual costs of the renovation were nearly identical to the initial estimate that we were quoted (this small discrepancy was a result of our decision to add a few projects and change some finishes in the home).
The oversight of the project, was phenomenal as well. Our project manager, Jeff, was one of the most detail oriented individuals we have ever met. Both my wife and I are doctors. Because of our work, we have to pay a great deal of attention to minute details to the point of at times being a bit obsessive compulsive. Jeff provided that same incredible level of detail and care to our project. He managed the subcontractors well and the project progressed extremely efficiently. Jeff went out of his way to communicate with us every step of the way, reducing any anxiety regarding the project.
Overall, our experience with E & S Builders has been PHENOMENAL! I can’t speak highly enough of their team. They are professional, reliable, honest, and detail oriented. We would highly recommend this company and will definitely use them again for any future projects.
