I cannot recommend Sam Karam & Sons highly enough. They are extremely professional and thorough from start to finish. David Hebert listens carefully, asking questions to help the client think through all possible scenarios to ensure that the end result will be just what you want. We reworked the estimates over several weeks to eliminate any unnecessary extras while retaining the main focus of the project. I greatly appreciated David’s attention to detail. We went to suppliers to compare products and he explained thoroughly why they recommended one over another. They use only the best materials and do not cut corners.
The architectural design phase was also helpful, as it provided an opportunity to reassess what aspects of the original scope were essential, what might be less so, and make adjustments accordingly. Their flexibility while adhering to best practices/industry standards made them perfect planning partners.
When they encountered something unanticipated (e.g. wood rot on the sill after removing the old deck; a broken concrete base for the deck stairs; a major design change) they consulted one another along with me to address the problem thoroughly before proceeding. Their crew is incredibly hard-working, cleaning up completely at the end of each day which often starts first thing in the morning and ends around 7 at night. The crew, to a man, is respectful and accommodating.
The work was completed in a timely manner, despite shortages in supplies and delivery issues due to Covid; and well within budget.
From many decades of working with builders, I can unequivocally state that they go above and beyond. I have never worked with a finer group. It is my pleasure to recommend Sam Karam & Sons without reservation.
