Cary, having access to references and seeing your work was the biggest selling point. You said some or all of the following things in the sales process, which wouldn't necessarily have sealed the deal by itself, but having our neighbors and friends, who we know and whose judgement we trust, confirm that you "put your money where your mouth is" was what sealed the deal. Seeing that you did this on our house as well, allows us to recommend you without hesitation.
There are several reasons Chris and I felt comfortable working with you: 1. You were referred by our neighbor, 2. You were knowledgeable as shown by your attention to detail and suggestions on design 3. Ultimately you did what you said you would do and how.
We want to thank you for your time and effort to make the bathroom wonderful. We are thoroughly enjoying it!
We wanted to sell our home, and we knew we had to do something with our kitchen first. We were worried about the mess involved and the cost. Our neighbors had their kitchen (and more) remodeled by CTC Renovation. They said that while it was an intense makeover, the process was explained well, dust was controlled, and the process went as described. We had CTC remodel our kitchen and adjoining areas. We agree with our neighbors - it went as planned, it was within our budget, and the results are phenomenal. We are planning to use CTC to build our new home!
Thanks so much for the wonderful job you did on our bathroom and shower. WE LOVE IT!
Our first exposure to Mr. Thompson was during a home show at Hy-Vee Hall in downtown Des Moines. Mr. Thompson seemed very genuine and interested in answering our questions. There was no sales pitch or pressure involved. After deciding to conduct a home interview with Mr. Thompson we were pleased with his ability to offer ideas as we expressed what we thought we wanted in our remodel project. Patience was a virtue often displayed by Mr. Thompson as our plans changed multiple times during the design process. The desire to keep our home as clean as possible during demolition and construction was much appreciated and the perfection of the work is still evident today.
CTC Renovation, in particular Cary, was a great choice for us. We started with the master bedroom and were so pleased with the results that we had him renovate the entire house. Between 2013 and 2016 we spent over $100K on 4 separate projects. Cary was the ultimate professional. He made recommendations that were high quality AND within our budget. He had timelines prepared and stuck to them. He treated our home as though it was his, from keeping dust to a minimum to finding the right location for sound system speakers and wiring to please the audiophile in our family. 4 years after our kitchen / main floor remodel we are still getting rave reviews from family and friends. And we love the results more each day.
I am so grateful Cary finished out basement for us. He showed vision, flexibility, integrity, and kindness form the first moment we met him. He offered many ideas, listened to our needs for the space, recommended cost effective alternatives, and gave us many choices. He was careful to the best work possible - treating our home like his home. Cary was efficient too. Our basement wasn't the biggest project and surely wasn't the best paying gig. Cary treated us like a priority, however. I am so thankful to know him. We love our finished basement. We spend a lot of time down there as a family. We could not be happier with the way things turned out. I would recommend Cary for any home improvements any time. His references said similar things before we decided to hire him. His reputation proved accurate.
Working with CTC Renovation (Cary) on my kitchen turned out to be such a great experience that I hired him to renovate my basement, too! From the initial meeting to talk about project scope to the final punch list to take care of finishing details, I was pleased with his professionalism, high quality workmanship, and commitment to creating a visually-pleasing and functional space. I highly recommend CTC Renovation and will continue to make him my first call whenever I have a potential home renovation project in mind..
