Overall very great experience. Darwin was extremely responsive over text / phone and delivered attentive client management. When things weren't right, he sought out to fix them and make them proper. When someone is in your home it is a personal experience and the trust factor has to be there. Darwin and his team are honest and responsible. He regularly engaged throughout the project.

Darwin is a professional and he seeks to deliver excellence, professionalism, and quality work. He approaches his work very transparently and really seeks to make the customer happy and delighted. He is a really honest and straight forward contractor. He was transparent, explained everything, made changes where necessary, explained issues that came up (as they do in 100 year old buildings), developed solutions, and kept to his timeline. Delivered value and quality. He was very very good and we vetted so many contractors and were totally comfortable with him as first time renovators. Read Sandy's review

Darwin was extremely responsive by email, text, and answering the phone. He was eager to please and often drove to various stores (Floor & Decor for tile, Lowes, Home Depot, plumbing supply) to pick up materials that I was unable to get myself, even though I was ordering the majority of the finish materials. Darwin and crew even made it in to work on the bathroom during a big snowstorm! Darwin made himself available early to meet me before work when I asked him to and at times stayed until I got home from work so we could go over progress and any questions. He was always cheerful, and it was a pleasure working with him. Darwin did a fairly thorough job installing protection from our front door to the bathroom; the floors were protected, and plastic lined the walls. There were some issues with the tape not sticking, and I would have preferred zipper openings instead of a double-layer plastic flap to access the living room, so we did have some dust in the rest of the apartment, but realistically there's no way to stop the dust entirely. I was pleased that our personal belongings were all safe & sound, and all I had to do was clean up some dust along the way. The end result is beautiful. I love my new bathroom. Read Kate's review

Darwin was very efficient, professional, courteous and knowledgeable and did a great job with refinishing my wood floors. He also replaced a damaged area of wood flooring saving me much money so I didn't need to replace the entire floor. Read Jacquie's review

They do high end work. The workers are very efficient and clean which is very important for me especially when work is being done in occupied apartments. Their pricing is very competitive as well. Darwin is extremely professional and knowledgeable. As a property manager, I've had him assess different types of issues with plumbing, interior repairs and mechanical issues. He's been a great help every time. Read Paula's review

Darwin and his team installed new flooring, renovated the powder bathroom, and fixed the outdoor deck, among other miscellaneous jobs around my house. They did a great job, communicated with me well regarding the status of the projects and always showed up on time. They were very respectful of my wishes and needs, and worked effectively around them. Overall, the team was very trustworthy and they were one of the best contractors I have ever worked with. I highly recommend them. Read Masahiro's review

I have known Darwin since August of 2010 when I moved into The Lore condominium. Darwin was the building Superintendent. From the very start I knew I could count on Darwin for almost anything I needed for my condo unit. From bathroom caulking, to electrical work, to extensive ceiling water damage repairs, the work has always been outstanding. I could give him access to my unit and trust that he would do a start-to-finish job, including clean-up. And as a Board member of the building I can attest that not only was Darwin’s work outstanding, but his demeanor and attitude were cherished by all residents of the building. He is already sorely missed. Read Scott's review
