What our happy clients have to say about us

Atlanta Area Building and Remodeling built a bathroom addition on our 1950s home about 1 year ago.  Josh at AABR took great care to ensure that the addition blended perfectly into our existing home.  Despite the fact that our house is more than 60 years old, he was able to source the right brick color and size, the right mortar color, and matching granite for the foundation.  All of this means that the addition looks like it has always been part of the home and we have received many compliments!  He was also excellent to work with throughout the process and has been easy to get in touch with even after the job was completed.  It is clear that Josh and AABR take pride in a job well done.

Over a two year period I engaged Atlanta Area Building & Remodeling to renovate (one at a time) my 3 twenty-five year old full bathrooms.

During the planning phases they always found a way to accommodate unique design requests that I had.  The proposals I received were quite detailed and fair based on others I obtained.

During the construction phase of each bathroom the company owner was onsite at least once a day to make sure all of the work was being done correctly.  The workers were courteous, neat and seemed to take great pride in their work.  As with all construction and remodeling unforeseen  minor problems arose and each time the owner and his staff resolved the issues to my satisfaction, always doing the right thing even when it meant many more additional hours of work.

All three bathrooms turned out exactly like I hoped they would and while several friends and family members have inspected each closely for imperfections they have yet to find any.

Living through a remodeling project is one of life’s most unpleasant experiences.  However, my anxiety level remained quite low during each of the 3 projects thanks to Atlanta Area Building & Remodeling’s high level of professionalism.

“In an industry where nightmare stories of bad contractors abound and often outnumber the few good ones, Josh is the exception. Purchasing our new construction house from Josh was truly a pleasant experience. We were fortunate enough to get our home early enough to add our own customized preferences, and Josh was more than willing to work with our sometimes unconventional choices and indecisiveness, as well as being instrumental in providing his professional guidance. Being first time buyers, we can’t say enough about how fortunate we were in finding a truly honest, sincere and professional builder that truly cares for his customers. I would highly recommend Josh to all my friends and family as well as anyone looking to purchase or build a quality home.”

“Recently retired from the United Nations, I had for quite a while been looking hard for a new house in a desirable area where my wife and I could spend our retirement in peace, and enjoy the next phases of our life. Suddenly one day, we located what we considered the ideal house in a nice and quiet area. The property was being built by Josh and his company, and was still in the early stage of its construction. In the subsequent process of purchasing the property, we discovered in Josh and his construction company, an admirable combination of honesty, dependability, professionalism and friendliness. Josh cheerfully guided my wife and me through all the stages of the construction of our new home; he promptly addressed all our concerns, and patiently answered our, sometime nagging, questions to our satisfaction. Even after the completion of the house and our moving in, Josh personally continued to ensure that my wife and I were settling down comfortably in the newly-built property. Josh has a good and reliable construction company, which we warmly recommend to anyone. And Josh himself has become our friend.”

“Approaching the end of the one-year warrantee, I had my house inspected on Monday. [The inspector] was truly full of praise for “the Builder of both 90 and 92 —- —- Rd”! Many of the comments he made in his report are really pieces of advice to me for the proper maintenance of the house. I really must thank you again for building us such a fine house which is a joy to live in.”

AABR did a huge amount of work on our new house over a 7 month time period: gutting the kitchen and putting up a completely new kitchen, opening up the living room, refinishing flooring, repainting the whole house, carpeting the entire upstairs, building an upstairs addition over a new porch area, and gutting and expanding a half bathroom into a full bathroom.
AABR did an awesome job with the work!  The kitchen is absolutely stunning and looks like something out of a magazine and the bathroom and new addition are gorgeous.  Everyone who walks into the house is so impressed with how beautiful it is.  It was a long process because we had a lot of permitting that we had to go through and the permitting process is pretty slow where we live but Josh was always on top of things and kept us updated with what was happening.

This is actually our third time using AABR and Josh; we used him to remodel our kitchen and 2 bathrooms in our last house and then this much larger project here.  We are always impressed with the quality of workmanship and the value — we had another contractor who quoted us around 75,000 just to do the kitchen and Josh brought the entire project which was a ton of work, including the kitchen, new bathroom, paint, and new addition for $85,000.  Josh tries his best to keep costs down, which we really appreciated.  For example, we were originally planning on using IKEA cabinetry but Josh has a cabinet provider who provides cabinets for the same cost as IKEA but are all wood with all of the nice features that IKEA has, like pull out drawers, etc.  We were very impressed with the cabinetry at the price!

We will be remodeling our last two bathrooms in this house in the next 2 to 3 years and will be using Josh and AABR again.

Master Bathroom – complete renovation, deck repair and additional structural support, closet door replacements
We choose AAB&R to renovate our master bathroom,  repair an old deck, and remove/install new closet doors in the basement.
This is our first house and home project and we are very pleased with the end result.   Our new bathroom looks amazing, new shower, floor, vanity shelves, and new paint throughout.   AAB&R Workers are very professional and clean up after every day.
Brent and Corey do great work and DON’T CUT CORNERS?  I have dealt with many contractors this year and AAB&R’s work stands out above the rest.

Atlanta Area Building completed a kitchen renovation in our townhome. The space had two doorways leading into the kitchen, each closed off by a set of double doors. AABR removed doors on both areas, reframed one opening, on other opening added height and removed adjacent wall with hanging cabinets to provided bar top counter and let light in kitchen from adjoining dining room. Updated sink and disposal.
 
Josh was very professional and accommodating to complete the project prior to move in. He coordinated all contractors and inspected and cleaned up after each step along the way. I would recommend AABR if you are seeking a renovation project in your home.

I purchased my home that was built in 1985. The previous owner did some remodeling, but I was in need of remodeling the master bathroom (installing the shower and re-tiling, removing the bathtub claws and ‘boxing’ the shape, granite countertops, installation of mirrors, other things in the bathroom), removing the carpet and putting in the hardwood floors, paint job, removing some cabinets, electrical and other installation work as needed.
This remodeling project that I expected to be done in few months was basically done within less then a month. The new look was drastically different. It was amazing how ALL these tasks were so well coordinated. From me picking the colors/ materials/ granite to actually managing the overall effort and timeline. Josh was so proactive, keeping me posted and staying true to his overall cost estimate. I also felt I was getting some well needed ‘consulting’ that saved me so much money. Quotes from others were well above his, and the proposals of what needs to be done were off the tangents. I really appreciated the honesty, excellent project management, honest dealing, timely updates and exceeding the expectations with quality/ time. The work done is A+ in my book!
Thank you so much!

During the past 12 months I had Josh Leibowitz with Atlanta Area Building and Remodeling totally demolish and rebuild two of my bathrooms. I had never had anything like this done before and during the planning stages Josh was a big help answering all my questions and offering advice and suggestions. I’m delighted with both of my new bathrooms, and they definitely display the fine quality of the work provided by his crews.
