Red Level listened, guided...they were true partners

After interviewing two full service design build firms, we chose Red Level Renovation because of their ability to meet our budget AND build a completely custom home. And quite simply, we chose Red Level Renovation because we liked Dan and John. It was interesting to watch a house built from the ground up - the process is not that complex but what is complex is the communication required.  Red Level listened, they guided, they kept our marriage intact, they were true partners and they became friends.  Two months after moving into our new home, I would do it all over again – they absolutely brought our dream house to life.

Delivers Exceptional Product

We hired Red Level Renovations to complete a major addition on our home and we could not be more pleased with both the process and the final product. We looked at a number of well-known high-end design and build firms in the Atlanta area and knew right away after meeting with Red Level that they would be our contractor. We had lived in a 2000 square foot historic craftsman home in Oakhurst (Decatur) for 12 years and wanted to add more space for our growing family. Red Level designed a beautiful second story addition for us that was in keeping with our neighborhood and craftsman style, and they were able to tackle the job on time and on budget.

The project called for us to completely move out all of our furniture and belongings and relocate our family for seven months. Dan and John took control of the house during that period and we had absolute confidence that the job would be done right and that they would treat our home like their own. In fact, during the demolition of the old roof, a summer storm rolled in with strong thunderstorms. Red Level’s framing and carpentry crew stayed at the house well after dark that evening ensuring that the tarps were secure, and only left after the winds and heavy rain had cleared out.

We placed full confidence in the abilities of both Dan and John to guide the design and building processes, and we were completely at-ease even during some of the most challenging phases of the project. As one can imagine, a job that requires the roof to be removed from a 100-year-old house and then adding a second story can present quite a bit of challenges to work through. With Red Level though we knew that things would always be done right.

Red Level’s communication during the 7-month project was exceptional. We would receive daily updates on the project and essentially immediate responses to any questions that we had about a specific detail. The ability to reach Dan or John at a moment’s notice was simply outstanding, and we believe was a cornerstone to the success of our project. The craftsman and sub-contractors that Red Level hires are second to none and you can tell that Red Level has been working with many of them for a very long time. We have been back in our home for 4 months now, and Red Level calls every month or so to simply check in or see if there is anything that needs to be taken care of since our move-in.

Red Level is a company that prides themselves on delivering an exceptional product at a great value. We really could not imagine having worked with any other firm on our project, and we would absolutely hire Red Level again. It was simply a terrific experience. If you are considering working with another firm, Red Level deserves a look. You won’t be disappointed.

Integrity & Quality

Red Level has completed 2 large remodels and additions to our home. We were a remodeler's nightmare in that we wanted to stay in our home through 2 major remodels. Everything went perfect. Everyday the job site was cleaned. Both projects were completed right on time and right on budget. Dan and John never failed to live up to every promise. Their subcontractors are the best out there. Always on time and if they were to be 15 or 30 minutes late due to traffic, they always called and advised us. We have one more phase we wish to complete on our home and I can say this with out a doubt, even if a big name Buckhead Remodeler were to offer to do Phase 3 FREE, we would turn them down. Dan and John are the only people we would ever do business with. We have referred them to 4 other people who have used them to do their remodeling. They were 100% satisfied as we are. Don't use anyone else!

Great Renovation Partner

We used Red Level to add a new story to our 1920s Atlanta bungalow, as well as do some additional improvements to the rest of the house. They are a great partner with which to work. John has a great attention to detail, and is committed to quality and satisfaction. He worked with our requests to use "green" materials and processes when possible, and made some great recommendations to us on that front. When a challenge arose in the project, he would present options and collaborate with us on solutions. We lived in the house during the project, and Red Level did everything possible to minimize impact to us. If we had to do it over again, we would absolutely use Red Level. We love our house!!!!!

Great Choice for a Renovation

I worked with Dan and Red Level on my second renovation to my house in Buckhead. Having been through it with another reputable firm before, it impressed me even more with their professionalism, ability to keep to the budget, and their ability to keep the site very clean even though I lived in it during the renovation. Additionally, they were considerably less than the alternatives I was considering. I would strongly recommend them for any renovation.

Reliable, Professional, High Quality & Reasonable

We've worked with Red Level on three jobs now - one large complicated renovation, one smallish exterior project, and a collection of smaller remodeling jobs. After the first project, my husband and I decided this group would be the first phone call when we needed renovation work done... We felt perfectly comfortable with these guys in the house. The work site was neat and cleaned up at the end of the day. We could not be happier with their work and recommend them highly.

Top Notch Professional Service and Quality

Dan and John are very personable and professional and they deliver quality work. I was also extremely impressed with the subcontractors that they used. All subcontractors were extremely courteous and mindful of the homeowner needs. I had 3 bathrooms and my kitchen remodeled and some other miscellaneous remodeling work done while still living in the house. Everyone made sure that I was not overly inconvenienced and that my living conditions were manageable. They did a great job at keeping the work areas clean after each work day and did a good cleaning of the entire house after all work was complete...
