Project Review: Lou Gonzalez is a true professional. He studied the building plans for an addition to my house that I had an architect draw. He had subcontractors evaluate costs for each trade – concrete, framing, electrical, plumbing, flooring, sheetrock, roofing, windows and doors, painting, etc. he estimated time and materials and provided me with an overall cost and timeline. As it came time for fixtures, type tiling and flooring, I picked out the materials. The project was done in 2015. Since I was up north during construction, he provided both visual and oral updates throughout the construction period. The project was beyond the timeline by a few weeks due to an architectural error, but Lou was able to resolve the problem onsite after consulting the architect and truss builder. The work quality was outstanding and he paid great attention to detail. After completion, he returned a few times for tiny details and to make sure I was completely satisfied. The project was not inexpensive but it added over 800 sq. ft. of living space.

Project Review: The contractor added a handicapped accessible one bedroom/ bathroom addition plus a screened porch and kitchen bump out. Total square footage about 800 sq. ft. The original 2 bedroom, one bath house with a bonus room was 1096 sq. ft. I was not occupying the house at the time the addition was being constructed. For the most part it went well. There was one delay due to weather and another due to a poor roof design provided by my architect. The contractor, Lou Gonzalez, re-evaluated the design with the architect and the roof rafter subcontractor. He then re-constructed the rafters on site. Lou Gonzalez was excellent at attention to detail and on more than one occasion called certain subcontractors back for do- overs or to correct some small thing. Almost all of the subs he used were above average so the completed job is stunning and added huge value to the house. I would not hesitate to use Lou again and did. He installed a screened security door for me and added a threshhold that a previous flooring contractor had failed to provide. He was completely willing to come back several times for minor things like cleaning the outside of the new windows of some sort of construction splatter. He also returned with his electrical sub to fix an outlet in the new bathroom that blew the light breaker after a couple of months when using a hair dryer. His electrician fixed the problem, but Lou called a few days later to make sure everything was okay. Also, Lou texted me progress photos during the course of construction and I flew down a couple of times during the summer to look at the job.

Project Review: My experience with LRG General Contracting was a good one. Lou is a perfectionist in his work. With Lou their is only one way to do the job – the right way. He will NOT take shortcuts. As in my case with these older homes in Florida you never know what you are going to find when you start a job and that has to be mentioned up front & taken into consideration along with cost. You will get a top notch / expert job when completed. To round it out Lou is professional, quite knowledgeable, and completed job within stated time frame.

Project Review: Removed window overhang and repaired stucco on our house. LRG started the job ahead of schedule and finished ahead of schedule. Lou was on the job every day, communicated with me every day and was a pleasure to do business with.
