When I started out with my home Reno my biggest concern was who to call to remove two bearing walls. Like most, I’ve watched many Reno shows like Holmes on Holmes and have seen the nightmares some people have gone through, even when the home owner has done there due diligence.
I was referred to Tony (Mixed Designs Building Group) by my engineer. When I first spoke with Tony over the phone he was very friendly and up front and discussed what was entailed and approx cost.
The first visit Tony came out to see my home and surprisingly offered other ideas to help reduce costs and still get the open concept I was looking for. After sometime considering the options I decided to go ahead with the original plan and have two steel flush beams installed.
Tony came out and took measurements and we spoke about some issue that could arise when the installation began. One of them being that we may not be able to hide the steel posts that support the beams completely in a wall due to where the posts must land as per the engineer Drawings. Tony quickly offered solutions and even when i didn’t like it he didn’t give up, he just found another way to make me happy and still follow the engineer’s specifications.
When the time came for installation Tony was on time every single day. He and his crew(Patrick) were very respectful of me and my home. They were always extremely careful when working and moving the lifts and beams in the house. They always tried to keep dust down and tidy while they worked.
My house fought them almost every step of the way....Tony never gave up. Any other contractor would have given up and said that’s the way it has to be and walked away. Not Tony, he is meticulous...he says he has OCD..LOL. When he has a plan he will fight to the death to make that happen. He will not take short cuts. I myself am very handy and meticulous but when I said “your not building furniture “ Tony didn’t except that. Everything has to look clean and neat, even if it will end up behind drywall. Now that is a high standard that you don’t find in most contractors.
Even when he thought there was no way around a problem but could see I wasn’t happy he called the engineer and found a way to make it work.
Tony is very open and doesn’t hide anything. He made many phone calls during the week with the engineer and with some flooring suppliers to see if he could get me a better price and it was always on speaker phone. I could hear everything, there was never a thought that he was marking a price up or trying to hide something.
He is very honest, excellent at what he does, and respectful. I can’t say enough about Mixedesigns . Tony is a TRUE PRO! who really cares about his clients and business reputation.
I could go on and on... but I will just say this. If your someone who watches Holmes on Holmes and always wonder how do I find an honest contractor who will complete the job at the highest standards then look no further. Mixedesigns Building Group covers it all.
Best of all they are Honest, Respectful, Cost is on par with other contractors and they provide a superior finished product that not many other contractors would be able to achieve because most other contractors don’t care enough to bother or have the skill set to achieve the high quality that Mixedesigns can offer.
Thanks Mixed Designs I will be calling you for my other home Reno projects.
