Having a house remodeled when you are off island and totally reliant on your contractor to keep you informed of progress and to make smart decisions is a daunting concept. We could not have been happier with Alan and his team. Alan's regular communication, including frequent pictures, helped us stay informed every step of the way. The design input from Alan was fantastic, and his workers and subcontractors truly were artists that paid attention to tiny details. In spite of being slammed with a pandemic in the middle of construction, Alan kept the work moving forward steadily and the end product (virtually a full makeover of the entire house) is a thing of beauty. Based on how well Alan made suggestions that kept cost under control no matter what problems were found behind our walls, we will probably just hire him for future projects without takings bids. If there were more than five starts to check I would check them all.
Swal'lech executed a big project for us on Lopez Island in 2018-2019 that included two (separate) kitchen remodels, hardwood floor installation and interior paint. They did a great job, and they made it easy for us to connect to 3rd party vendors to choose options like cabinets and appliances. We had many small requests and changes during the process and they were reasonable and accommodating which we really appreciated. I can definitely recommend Alan and his team to anyone.
Swal'lech Construction completed a major remodel on our Lopez Island home during 2019. We found them wonderful to work with as well as professional, competent, efficient, flexible and reliable. The project was finished on schedule and they have a penchant for following through with all the details and finishing touches. We especially appreciated their close and amicable communication throughout the entire process. They are deserving of five golden stars, for sure!
We could not be more pleased with the work of Swal'lech. From day one, the entire team has been a pleasure to work with. We have now done three projects with them and each one has been completed within our budget and on-time. What I appreciate most is the creative thinking that they bring towards finding smart and economical solutions to complicated problems. I would highly recommend them to anybody looking for a trustworthy Builder/GC.
This is a highly professional team that does really excellent work! We would hire them again for a construction project in a heartbeat!!
We love our new home! We asked Swal'lech to build us a "house that smiles" ~ and it does! And we have been smiling back at it since the day we moved in! We worked with Swal'lech from design to completion and all points in between. We were impressed with their workmanship, skills, and knowledge ~ and also their ability to really listen to us and communicate with us. Our home is a well-crafted home that suits us perfectly. In the design phase Swal'lech made suggestions that allowed us to stay within our budget and still build the house we wanted; and in the construction phase they made suggestions that creatively enhanced our home and the use of space within it. Their attention to detail and the quality of their work made us feel that they were building our home with the same care they would take if building their own. We started the project as strangers, but we parted as friends!
Although my project took longer than expected, the quality of the work was outstanding. The Swal'lech team was very responsive to my needs and easy to work with. I was impressed with the team's knowledge and professionalism.
Alan DiBona and crew did an amazing job getting my project from dream to finished project. They offer beautiful, lifetime-quality craftsmanship and can work well within a budget.
I've worked with Alan and Mark on a number of projects and have found their attention to detail and finish quality unparalleled. From a designers point of view, I highly recommend Swal'lech Construction to anyone desiring a fine building, which can only result from the exceptional working relationship they provide.
