Last year I designed a medium-size residential addition / renovation for a client in Sebastopol. Michael Myers was selected as general contractor. During the course of construction I was pleased with Mr. Myers’ craftsmanship and attention to detail, and that he made innovative suggestions that improved the project. He was flexible to the inevitable changes and priced them fairly. He scheduled his materials and subcontractors well and the job ran smoothly. Our client found Michael easy to work with and was pleased with the overall quality of the job. I will invite Mr. Myers to submit proposals on similar future projects.
Mike has worked on homes for me in Los Angeles and Hawaii. The scope of that work varied from complete home remodels to fine finish carpentry projects. Besides the fact that he does really good work, there are four other things that I like best about working with Mike.– He is mindful of budgets.– He is always pleasant and respectful.– He takes pride in his work and in his reputation.– He has a keen sense of the environment.I would recommend Mike highly to everyone.
Michael Meyers work is exceptional. Not only is he a superb craftsman, but he is reliable, artistic and very easy to communicate with. Every job he has done over the last 8 years has been perfect and done to my complete satisfaction.
Mike Myers worked as our contractor for several months in the summer and fall of 2007. He remodeled a small one bedroom house by adding a full kitchen, new floor, tiling several areas (including shower, floors, wall and steps), moving walls, installing basic electrical, installing a gas fireplace, dry walling and painting interior and exterior, enlarging a deck, as well as reproofing the entire structure. In addition, he built stairs, put up an 85 feet long wood retaining wall, enlarged a hillside container garden area and did numerous other construction projects to get our newly purchased house in top shape, both structurally and visually.Mike’s work is first quality. His knowledge of construction and green building is solid and his workmanship is excellent. His work is often beyond code and his attention to detail was perfect for a detail person like myself. In addition, Mike continually notices the aesthetics of a project, whether it is softening the edge of something or lining up bolts to please the eye. His experience in the trade is obvious and as is his enthusiasm for it. He finished absolutely everything before leaving the job. The end result of his work is wonderful. Everyone who sees it, loves it and is impressed that we had a single contractor, Mike, do nearly everything. I have no hesitation recommending his workmanship. The work he did was the quality we had hoped for and with him received.Beyond that and equally, if not more important, is Mike’s personality and way of doing business. He listens to his client and keeps his goal of making sure they are happy with the result of his work. When something done as requested turned out not to be exactly what we expected or wanted, Mike consistently worked with us to get it right, even if it meant re-doing it. Mike is steady and easy going. He is intelligent and aware of the bigger picture of things. He communicates well and understands clearly what is being communicated to him. He shares his ideas and knowledge of products and resources, and respects what choices, within that, the client makes. He keeps excellent records and bills in a clear and fair manner. He is reliable, showing up steadily and on time and working hard. In a sentence, Mike is a great guy who knows his stuff.It can be difficult, worrisome and time consuming to find a contractor for a smaller project such is ours. Yet who you hire is critical to the success of the project and also to your experience of it. There are many single contractors available, but knowing who will get the job done fairly and well is often the problem. You can trust that Mike is such a builder. I have no hesitation in recommending him to others for their similar projects. We feel very fortunate to have had Mike available to do our projects and would use him again without hesitation for any projects in the future.
I have been able to see the work of Michael Meyers on many occasions over the years, both for others and myself. One thing that stands out more than anything else in those observations is his commitment to quality. Mike will always do what it takes to make the job “right”. He has an eye for detail and an excellent grasp of the underlying concepts of carpentry and building. When he says he is a “green” builder, he is not just jumping on the popular bandwagon. He spent a lot of time, (and gave up a lot of good work) to complete his degree in Environmental Studies at UC Santa Barbara.One of the reasons he did that was because he genuinely wanted to better understand, and implement well thought out and environmentally conscious work. When you put all this experience and knowledge together with the fact that he is a man of honor and integrity, you can understand why I highly recommend him to anyone needing building work.
Thank you so much for everything that you’ve done for us. We have felt so lucky to have you as our contractor. Your experience, understanding, flexibility, and guidance has helped us build a home for our family and made many of our dreams come to fruition. The house feels so solid and warm. We are both very excited to move in and make it ours…
