Re: Letter of Recommendation, Select Builders

To Whom It May Concern:

On June 15, 2009, I completed an extensive remodel of a 3 bedroom Condominium in the Coronado Shores Complex (in Coronado, California). Mike Mastrobattista of Select Builders was the General Contractor for this project.

The scope of work included a complete demolition of all interior walls and f|ooring…|itera|iy the place was stripped to concrete floor and metal stud party walls. But before I go too far, it’s important to Set the stage a bit. I am a General Contractor (in another state) and entering into this remodel, l had very high expectations for the finish product and the customer service.

Select Builders had a positive and proactive style and they understood that a successful remodel requires a great team, and a great leader. Mike Mastrobattista embraced the project leadership role and worked with me as a partner. The qualities that I most appreciated were:

Pricing – Mike was very competitive on base bid work, and open and fair with changes that | requested.

Planning – Mike planned Well and provided detaiied construction schedules. More importantly,  he kept me focused on critical decisions I needed to make to support the building effort. He was  very good at keeping me aware of what he would need, in 2-3 weeks or in 2-3 months, to keep things roiling.

Execution and Commitment -I bought my condo late in the season and as a result started  design very late. Mike was given a narrow window to execute the work and he hit the schedule.  What more can I say!!

Quality and Service- The quality of their Work far exceeded my expectations. It was a pleasant surprise. Mike’s attention to detail took our condo from 3 Star……to 5 Star. He is a modern day craftsman!!

Warranty Responsiveness – They have been responsive and timely in follow up and | haven’t had to chase them. To Mikes credit, l haven’t had any real significant issues.

In summary, my experience with Select Builders was a great one and Mike and his team were fantastic to work with. l can say without reservation that the best decision I made on this project was to hire Mike Mastrobattista. Without hesitation l would highly recommend him to any other potential customer.
