What People Are Saying About Winter Construction
Couldn't be happier with work of Tom Winter and his crew (Max and
Tom Winter, in two different projects for my home, was a
thoroughly competent, professional contractor and thoughtful in every
aspect of his work with my kitchen and bath renovations.
The craftsmanship was excellent, the work was timely, and reasonably priced.
I would recommend Winter construction to everyone.
Winter Construction was selected after researching other remodel contractors in the Gig Harbor area. Coming in as my middle bid on a kitchen, bath, and living room remodel in a 1945 block home, I was a bit apprehensive.
Not to worry they performed above and beyond expectations. Work was completed on time, within budget and very high quality. Tom did an amazing job of modernizing a very old home with many hidden challenges as the project progressed.
I am sold on the work this company does.
Our home builder installed a fireplace that looked more like an afterthought. It was more of a “firebox” than a fireplace. Very simple and cheap looking sitting against a large wall in our Great Room. The room needed more than this simple firebox.
Enter Winter Construction.
Our daughter helped us find Winter Construction through her Angie's List account, and in the past few months Tom and his crew have rebuilt our front porch and completed a far-bigger project on our large second-story deck.
We couldn't be happier in both cases. Tom is thorough, thoughtful and thoroughly professional. In both projects, modifications and a few changes were done along the way, and Tom's "can-do" attitude was very helpful and reassuring.
He and his crew were prompt, hard-working and completely accommodating to our needs. Very much a pleasure to work with.
We're already planning with Tom to do a re-do of our
bathroom this spring.
Project: Removing existing siding and trim, installing hardi board siding, cedar shingles, installing window trim on the entire house, and painting the house and trim (2 colors).
We contacted Winter Construction after calling several other contractors. They were quick to respond and set a date for the estimate within that week. We were happy to receive a very detailed estimate and at a reasonable price. They started promptly on the date we had set and showed up everyday that they were expected.
Our work began in mid September, so they did have to
work around the changing weather. But everything went very smoothly.
They cleaned up after themselves (and there was a lot of debris with our
entire old siding being removed) and paid good attention to the details.
The job included tear down and haul away of old siding, new Hardy plank
siding put up and painted whole exterior.
Winter Construction performed a complete remodel on our 1100 sq. ft. beach house. This included demolition, wall reconstruction, electrical, plumbing, flooring, kitchen, bath, texturing, painting, insulation, windows, tile, etc.
Consultation included helpful practical and aesthetic suggestions when we, as home owners, lacked ideas and experience. Tom and Chessa, and their crew, responded in a timely manner to our schedule and were sensitive to our budget requirements.
to use Winter Construction in future home improvement projects and
recommend them highly to those with any construction or remodeling
Project: Gig Harbor Basement Remodel:
"Chessa and Tom gave me a thorough, concise, and helpful estimate. Working with Tom Winter and his crew was a pleasure from start to finish. They were friendly, polite, respectful of my property, and always punctual. The work was done with precision and care. I was consulted whenever there was a small change needed in the original plan.
I'm extremely happy with the final result of my basement remodel and would not hesitate to hire Winter Construction in the future.
I highly recommend this company."
Project: Gig Harbor Trex Deck July 2015
"My husband and I are completely thrilled with our new deck. Tom and Chessa Winter are a great team to work with on Trex deck installs. We first made contact with Winter Construction through their website on July 6th, when we sent an inquiry for an estimate to replace our 10 year old Trex deck material with new Trex Select with screws as the fastener. The existing frame and hand rail would stay the same and not require any changes. Chessa Winter contacted us the same day by email regarding our request for an estimate.
On July 12th both Chessa and Tom came to our house to take a look at the deck and gather measurements to write a formal estimate. The next morning we had an estimate for the screws, blade, drill bit, dump fee and labor through email. We provided the Trex material. Upon receiving the estimate Chessa gave us a few choices about when they could complete the work. We chose July 27th as a start date. Tom and his help arrived at 8AM as agreed. They quickly got to work removing the screws from the old boards.
By Wednesday, July 29th they were finished installing the last new board. We had one hiccup in the entire process and both Tom and Chessa were so helpful when we came up short on the Trex boards. Tom was able to get more material locally and Chessa helped us get reimbursed through Trex. During the entire process everyone from Winter Construction was punctual, respectful, courteous and super neat. Super neat meaning that everything was cleaned up at the end of each work day and old materials removed daily. We are still enjoying our new deck as summer comes to close. It is without hesitation that my husband and I recommend Winter Construction for a Trex deck install."
