From ironing out the quote details right through completion of the work. Everything was done in a timely manner and right on quote. They also do a great job of cleaning up after themselves at the end of each day, which was very important to us as we did not vacate the house for the work to be done (until the floor refinishing was taking place). Rich and Paul were also very receptive to add on work as we went along. For example, the bathroom painting, kitchen faucet and downstairs shower work were not in the original quote. He did them upon request at very reasonable prices.”
“Rich and Paul (a real keeper .. great worker!) did a lot of the work but they do subcontract out a number of things (plaster work, plumbing, tile). All of the subs were respectful and cleaned up after themselves. The one and only time someone didn’t clean up (the plaster guys), Paul was already there cleaning up after them when I got home from work. So you know he keeps an eye on his subs.”
“They did such a great job it’s almost like having a new house. Many thanks to Rich and Paul and crew! I know who I’ll be hiring for any future home remodeling work. 1st Choice.”

“Excellent experience, it could not have been better. It started with the initial visit and they actually listened to our needs and provided exactly what we were looking for. The quote was professional and detailed. They were right on time and performed exactly the way the estimated stated. The siding matched perfectly – you would think this is exactly how the window was originally designed. The were very neat, efficient, considerate and professional. It is nice to look back and know that we by far picked the BEST company for the job. We would do it the same way all over again.”

“We love what homeowners are saying about 1st Choice Home Improvement Associates. Rich and Paul were easy to work with and flexible in regard to changes we might decide upon during the project or those that might be necessary due to the peculiarities of our home. They were also dependable and tidy. Don’t ever underestimate the value of these latter qualities when engaging a contractor.”
We have no reservations in recommending 1st Choice for your home improvement projects. Their work was excellent and their prices reasonable.”

Your expertise, professionalism, reliability, and “can do work attitude” has made our home a palce my husband and I now can enjoy and share everyday with friends and family. Thank you again for your work well done.”

“After writing a proposal which was very reasonable, they began the work in a very methodical, professional manner. They took time to explain all the details with us and answered all our questions.
While the work was proceeding they kept the work area clean and neat. The finished product was exceptional, and both the shingling and the new doors make a nice improvement to our home.
We both were very satisfied with their work and attention to detail. We would not hesitate to call on them again to do more home improvement work. Feel free to call us if you have any questions.”

“Paul and Rich are extremely hard workers and very talented at what they do. Every time they came to our home, they were energetic, got straight to the task at hand, and (one of my particular favorites) always left their work area cleaner than the way they found it. They both are very family oriented, personable, and each has a wonderful sense of humor.
We have recommended them many family and friends since we’ve met them, and have always heard back from those people that they loved their “new contractors” and were going to recommend them to other people further on down the “it’s all in who you know” line. We never had such professional, trouble-free, and fairly priced work done in all aspects of our home and property improvements, no matter how small or involved the task.”
