I called Gordan Franks, the owner of Optima Designs, with an urgent request for a carpenter who could repair and seal roof trim and repair a front porch - both had been damaged by pests. Mr. Franks was extremely responsive, showing up within a day to discuss our repair needs. He made good suggestions about additional, long overdue work that we had been thinking about on the house. We decided to do the needed wood repairs, have the exterior of the house cleaned and wood trim painted, and have his handyman do a few needed indoor repairs. The estimate I received for the work seemed fair, based on several other bids I had received, and I very much appreciated that Optima Designs collects payment only when the work is complete (unlike several other firms I spoke with who wanted 1/3 payment before any work would begin). His carpenter, Edgar, was able to start and finish the work the next week. Edgar was very knowledgable and clearly experienced. His work was excellent. He quickly and professionally addressed the few concerns and/or questions I had. He kept a very clean site and provided great advice about options for the repairs that were needed. I am extremely pleased with Optima Designs and the carpenter it employs. I would strongly recommend them.

Gordon and the team were very professional, responsive and did a great job on time and budget. We had significant water damage from a leaking pipe over the course of months and Optima completed the job from demo to tile/touch up. Work included reconstruction (replacement of new joist, band board and soffit), cabinet replacement, deck boards and siding put back, drywall/painting and tile work (difficult smaller glass pieces) all without damaging existing granite top. Due to structural damage, we hired structural engineer to develop a scope of work prior to contacting Optima and had them review the repairs before closing up. The engineer onsite was very impressed with the reconstruction work completed by Edgar as the location of the repairs was in a difficult exterior/corner load bearing wall. We were very pleased at the completion of the engagement especially since their price was significantly lower than the second contractor in our final selection (reviewed total of 6 and Optima was lower and similar to all). We highly recommend Optima Designs for any of the aforementioned type of work.

We had a lot of exterior trim added to a large enclosed unheated rear porch (12 feet x 40 feet). We also had a wall of aluminum siding (the original exterior of the house) replaced with smooth cement-board panels. The craftsmanship and attention to detail of the carpenter (Edgar) was exemplary. Late one afternoon, he discovered that one of the panels did not fit as well as he would like because of the out-of-square roof above it. First thing the next morning, he replaced the panel with a better fitting one - he obviously takes pride in his work. He notched-in long lengths of lumber and used small-headed screws and nails to give us the nicest appearance possible of his finished work, even though he knew that in two days time, painters would be spackling and caulking before they applied paint over the trim and panels.
