Tim is nothing but amazing. He built a patio cover on our house at a great price, he works quickly, has excellent ideas, and he follows instructions. What more could you want in a contractor? We've also hired Tim again to paint, our neighbors hired him to remodel, and my in-laws hired him to do windows. Everyone has the same great results with Tim Austin.
Tim and his team handled some major components of our recent remodel. They did an excellent job framing the new addition, matching existing walls and rooflines so perfectly that you cannot find where the old ends and new begins. They installed new siding, which included replacing old aluminum siding on the existing house and reinstalling old windows. Tim, Geoff and Tony were all a pleasure to work with and their knowledge, skill, professionalism and pride in their work was evident every day on the job. We highly recommend Tim Austin LLC and will call them again for future projects.
We have had Tim out to the house now several times and we could not be more pleased. Tim has done a big deck project and a fence project for us. Both are home runs by any measure. We have more work we need done as funds become available -- we are going with Tim, no question about it. Plenty of businesses speak of integrity, Tim puts the words into action. Honest, fair, timely, transparent. All of these words describe our experience with Tim. We feel really lucky to have found him. Far and away Tim is the best contractor we have had out to the house. Go with Tim. Seriously.
We recently had Tim do work for us building a garden shed, fence and 2 gates. We are extremely happy with his work. We have gotten numerous compliments on both the shed and fences. Tim does what he says he will do. He and his staff do very high quality work and are quality people. He was at the job when he said he would and finished very timely, but not rushed. The quoted estimate price was the price for the job, there no unexpected or hidden costs. Tim worked with us to make sure that we got all details incorporated into the projects and was great about making suggestions when we were not sure exactly what we wanted. Tim kept in touch with us and would return calls, texts and emails the same day and in most cases within a few hours. Overall we were very impressed with Tim and Tony and look forward to having them work on additional jobs for us in the future. I have and will recommended Tim to my friends and family.
I have used Tim for several projects at my home. It was great working with him. He first listened to my wife and I to understand what we wanted -- in our case, back yard deck and front porch construction. Then, based upon his experience, he offered suggestions with regard to concept modifications and materials. Once we agreed upon the final design, he implemented the plan to perfection -- on schedule and within budget. After completion, he followed up with us to make sure we were happy with his craftmanship and the final product. As a consumer, it means a lot to know a contractor that cares about his work and the satisfaction of his client. You can't go wrong with Tim. He's the best!
I have now used Tim for two projects. Each project came in on time and on budget. The first project was a two story deck/entry way. The thing is completely bullet proof. The deck will be standing long after an earthquake levels the house. He produced a much higher quality deck for a cheaper price than the two other people who bid the job we planning on doing. Tim is like the mail man, one day it was pouring and he was out there working away. His work ethic is outstanding and he does what he says he will do and nowadays that's rare. He never once tried to ask for more money, change the plan or the timeframe. The project was done the end of the day on the exact day he said it would be, not bad on a 7 day job. A few months later I called Tim to see if he wanted to do a 100ft. fence. It was done 48 hours later. I'm not really sure what else I can say about Tim, he is a great craftsman, honest and a genuinely nice person. My only hesitation in giving this testimonial is my selfish fear that he will get too busy and not be able to do all the projects I need him to do in the future.
Dear Tim, I wanted to drop you a note to thank you for the amazing work you did on our new front porch and our fence. When we embarked on this project, I was primarily seeking a reconstructed replacement for what was in place on the porch, and something inexpensive but functional on the fence. When we received your quotation on the project, the price was very reasonable and I knew from your website www.timaustinllc.com you did quality work. I further checked and your CCB record was immaculate. Now that the project is finished, I must admit I didn't anticipate how detailed you'd be and the craftsmanship you'd engineer into the design. I was hoping for a simple replacement, but what you've constructed has dramatically increased the curb appeal of my home! (Neighbors have said so on multiple occasions.) I really appreciated your flexibility in our plans and your creative solutions to our dilemmas. My wife mentioned in conversation “he's like an artist...he just happens to work with wood.” I can't think of a better compliment than that. Thank you again for your great work. I will proactively recommend you to anyone I know. Sincerely,
We bought an old (1912) fixer-upper in the Hawthorne area. One of the worst aspects was the roof -- with 3 (or maybe 4) layers of heavy shingles plus the original wooden shakes). It was bowed, cracking, and so generally bad, we nearly didn't get financing because the bank didn't like the looks of it! When it was soon time to take care of this, we met with a handful of contractors that had residential roofing experience. One other contractor eliminated himself from the bidding by refusing to install the brand of skylights we wanted (Velux, which we believe is a reputable brand), insisting on upselling us with his own much higher-priced ones. Another offered a price so vague, it was really nothing more than a ballpark figure.
But we met some fine, qualified companies, too -- all of whom clearly knew their stuff when it came to roofing. And, of those, three things set Tim's company apart from the others. First, his bid was thorough and on-point. Second, he was helpfully responsive to our many emails and follow-up questions. But, above all, it was the pictures we reviewed of his finished work. Tim's jobs didn't just look "done" -- they looked professional. So, it was a quality call. As far as execution went, a great crew came out the next week, tore off four layers of shingles, resheathed, reflashed, reshingled, and installed six large skylights -- all within a few days. We're happy to recommend Tim Austin LLC Construction to others (and we have done so already!).
My wife and I could not be more pleased with the work Tim Austin & his crew did in re-roofing, installing HardiPlank siding and painting our two story colonial home. Tim’s crew was timely, courteous and professional in all of their work. The work lasted the better part of one month and each day they left the area around our home neat and clean. The quality of their work is outstanding. We would highly recommend Tim Austin, LLC.
