What people are saying . . .

Peter Lyon’s company was excellent. We chose the best, and it paid off in dividends. We chose Peter’s company because he did the most thorough job estimating our project. He sent all of his subcontractors over first so that there were no surprises later on. The other companies merely bid the job on a per-square footage basis. Peter’s attention to detail is what we were looking for, and we were not disappointed.

Our project manager, Mark Walter, was amazing in both his knowledge of homebuilding and his reliability. As a result, our home delights us in ways we can’t even quantify. Peter was able to clearly understand what we were after, which was a green home that was visually beautiful. And more importantly, he and his team worked hard to get us there.

Dear Peter,

I want to tell your potential clients that it may seem like you’re comparing apples to apples when you’re getting quotes from different contractors for a remodel project but I think that maybe they aren’t getting the whole story when they just compare bottom line cost.

What often isn’t included in those other contractors’ bids (and is included in yours because it’s just the way you are) is the fact that you and your team ALWAYS will do what you say you will, show up when you say you will and at the exact time that you’ve promised. I can’t tell you how great that was for us throughout the project. It’s just remarkable. We knew absolutely that we could (and we still do) depend on you and your work (by the way, I also appreciated the no dogs, no smoking and no loud music).

Also, the fact that your long term guarantee adds so much value to a bid from you. The subs that you use are superior. Their workmanship and the materials they use are really first class. Work isn’t rushed and it’s done correctly. In the midst of a remodel, when everything is torn apart, I think that you really get what you pay for as it goes back together. From the sub-floor to the ceiling . . . we have complete confidence in the work that your folks did for us.

We are still getting compliments on our remodel project three years later! (“The best remodel I’ve ever seen” is often heard). I think it was successful because you took so much time with us and because your crew and subs are just really wonderful people as well as perfectionist artisans who take such pride in their work.

We were so afraid as we began our project after hearing many horror stories of work left unfinished for long periods of time or contractors that change the deal mid-remodel or subs that decide to go to the beach instead of show up to work. But that never, ever happened. . . it was a great experience, really. How many people can say that about a remodel project?

We will absolutely call on you all to do the other half of the house when we get ready for that. In fact, we wouldn’t consider anyone else for the job!

You’re the best — and everyone should know it.

Sincerely and gratefully,
Joselle and Andy Kryder

Peter Lyon — a thoroughly professional, experienced and honest contractor. He has overseen two major renovations for us, and we have no reservations in recommending him.

My relationship with Peter Lyon goes back nearly ten years. In that period of time, I engaged Peter to complete three remodels on two different homes. Each time the work was started and completed on time and as quoted. A person of integrity, Peter’s greatest attribute is his honesty. I would not hesitate using Peter Lyon on any future remodel I may have.

Dear Mr Lyon,

We were so pleased with our remodel and wanted you to know just what made our experience so special. You and your professional team were:
1) always on time
2) Made our living space as clean as possible and as functional as could be during the remodel
3) Approached the job with professionalism and sound, concrete suggestions for a successful outcome
4) Made sure we were happy with the finished room
And, unbelievably, you had our home thoroughly cleaned once the job was complete. All in all, one of our most satisfactory experiences with a contractor, and for that we thank you.

To whom it may concern:

Two years ago we hired Peter Lyon as our general contractor for a major home remodel, which took approximately 18 months. It involved working with our architect to raise one portion of the roof, retrofitting the house to meet current earthquake codes, altering the entrance of our home, reconfiguring a bathroom and closet and taking the interior of much of the first floor down to the studs and rebuilding it, including a number of unique and one-of-a-kind structural features. Many of these required coordination with other contractors and designers. The overall quality of the work performed we felt was very high, including both the framing and rough carpentry and the visible and important finishing work.

We were very satisfied with Peter Lyon as our general contractor. He assigned us an excellent and experienced individual as project manager who was exceptionally skilled in all aspects of remodeling and construction. Mark handled the day-to-day coordination well and performed many construction tasks on his own, enabling the subcontractors to function more efficiently. As a result, the job moved along smoothly, stayed on schedule, and had minimal surprises.

Peter Lyon’s choices of subcontractors especially pleased us, as they were easy to work with, were very skilled, and were flexible. Peter’s estimates of time, costs and materials proved to be quite accurate, and he continually updated us when changes were necessary or when the timeline needed altering. When we initiated design changes, Peter worked them into the schedule seamlessly and the project continued to progress. He was always polite, positive and respectful in dealing with us and with others at the work site. When we had questions, Peter promptly returned our phone calls and made every effort to locate the answers we were seeking in a timely manner.

Thanks to Mr. Lyon and to our excellent interior designer, our home remodel has since won several awards. Without reservation we recommend Peter Lyon for anyone seeking quality work and a very competent general contractor.

I wanted to thank Peter and his team for their collective effort to deliver us a high end quality beautiful bathroom that we are extremely happy with – they came in on budget and time which in my experience with contractors is almost unheard of, and came up with very creative ideas to “bullet proof” our installation for the future.  Experienced, professional, clean, prompt team that I really enjoyed getting to know as well.  My best to the Peter Lyon team.
