We were also fortunate enough to work with Rose Garretson who listened to our story about our dream kitchen and bathroom and helped guide us along the way.  Rose is definitely an expert designer.  Rose' detailed work was crucial and the excellent end result is proof of her work.  We hit a few snags with our contractor along the way but Joe and company were always there to the rescue and to save the day.  We were more than impressed with their professionalism and excellent client attention."

You've heard all the nightmares about remodels gone bad, Tim Garretson and crew was a, "Dream Come True". There is not a day gone by that I thank GCI for rebuilding our home with integrity, honesty, trust and the customer service that you find in luxury hotels. Our project was a major remodel, under budgeted, high expectations, and with the intent to live on property during construction. A contractors nightmare! Tim maintained a safe, friendly, and secure environment. His honesty, communication and can do attitude made the project fun and exciting.

Everyday we watched as their craftsmanship, handwork and attention to detail unfolded over a span of 6 months. The banks would own me by now if it was not for Tim and company. Tim is a down to earth, friendly, likable business man that is genuinely interested in helping the customer get the best quality and the best value. He even lent me his truck to pick up 2 tons of marble at an auction in SF......now that's a wow! I look forward to the day when I can build another Dream Home by Garretson Construction."

I've done a lot of remodeling on my homes, using many different contractors over the years.  I can say that most are professional, on-time, on budget, etc.  This is a  "new build" from the ground up.  The thing that really sets Garretson Construction apart from the others--besides the obvious requirements of quality work, precision, great crew and meeting my very high standards of perfection--is that Tim really listens to what I'm saying and offers very sound advice in a non-condescending manner.  Being a woman customer in the "man's world" of construction, I really appreciate this trait.  He is making my lifelong dream come true--of a beautiful home in the Redwoods."

Three years ago, Garretson Construction installed a new kitchen in our existing log cabin. Meeting Tim, I was impressed with his professionalism, courtesy and patience in going over details, answering questions and pointing out corrections to make on the plans; thus avoiding issues during construction. His employees were always on time, courteous and finished the work quickly.

The project went smoothly; we are pleased with the high quality of workmanship and the final outcome-a stunning kitchen-exceeded our expectations. Two years ago, Garretson Construction gutted our old Master Bath, installing a new one with a spa-like feel and can only be described as the room of my dreams. We look forward to hiring them again for future room remodels. I highly recommend Garretson Construction to anyone seeking a company that embodies honesty, integrity and quality in workmanship."

I recently had the pleasure of having my [dental] office remodeled with Garretson Construction, what a great experience. First, Tim Garretson has to be one of the nicest people to work with, he is always in a good mood and can solve any problem thrown his way. Second,Tim has alot of experience and it shows. He is a perfectionist who is always striving to deliver more than what you expect.

The subcontractors he uses all do such a great job too! Third, he has a great crew working with him. Fourth, (yes there's a fourth) I have since referred him to two colleagues and they have had great experiences with him and their offices look great too. Furthermore, Tim is honest and forthright, qualities that can be difficult to find nowadays. I wouldn't think twice to use Garretson Construction again."

In 1994, I hired Garretson construction to convert an existing space into a dental office. In april of this year, I called on Tim to remodel and expand my space. While I was pleased enough with the original work to recommend him to others in the building, my recently completed remodel exceeded all of my expectations. In fact, even my patients comment on how well the project was done.

In my experiences, I have found Tim to be an honest, easy to work with guy with an eye for detail. As a professional who places great value in these qualities, I would definetly recommend his service."

When I have a problem this is the company I call for help. It does not matter how big or small the situation is. Every time I have called I am answered by a friendly, energetic, competent, and knowledgeable professional that makes my problems go away. I have had the experience to use Tim from Garretson Construction numerous times at both my place of employment and my personal home.

Every time the results have been better than I expected. Tim will assist you at working within your price range to develop a plan to accomplish the solution that you are striving for. You can shop around and compare prices but remember many times you get what you pay for. At Garretson Construction you will always get more than you pay for. I have no need to look further. When I have a problem, modification, or upgrade Tim is who I call and will continue to call. If you only want to make one call to find a solution Tim is the only call you will need to make."

Garretson Construction (Tim) worked on a portion of our remodel in 2001. We had just completed an entire landscape design project with a different company and Tim’s team came in to do the finish work on our interior. They did a beautiful job on our bathrooms from the bottom up. He put in Base boards and Crown molding throughout the entire house. He put an architectural molding around our new windows that really make our windows stand out.

He did an absolutely wonderful job on our Wine Room and Media Room. People often remark on how great the molding looks. We were very pleased with the things Tim and his team did for us."

I am happy to recommend Garretson Construction - everyone within the company, but especially Tim Garretson, had been very professional, thoughtful, and kind  throughout the process in spite of various set backs from suppliers.  Garretson Construction recently remodeled my master bathroom. Tim went above and beyond in providing good recommendations and communication with me as well as interceding with the supplier to make sure any errors made on their behalf were resolved.   I was also pleasantly surprised at the way they were able to keep the dust, etc. to an almost unnoticeable minimum – a first for me in other dealings with contractors!

Overall, I am very happy with the work and everyone I know agrees it's very beautiful too - I am definitely looking forward to having this excellent company do more work in my home in the future."
