Hershe, owner of building solutions, ( recently re-did our master bathroom and removed a load bearing wall. I can't recommend him highly enough. His prices, while not the cheapest, were a LONG way from the most expensive, probably because he doesn't design your bath then subcontract it out. He has his own crews, and we dealt with the same 3-5 crew members the entire project. Hershe was present almost every day, and all day on certain major events (removing the load bearing wall). His crews always cleaned up each night. An unexpected benefit - at the end of the project he had a house cleaning service - top to bottom. I liked his pricing model, where he broke out labor and materials, and didn't have any interest in up selling or commission on the materials. He didn't care if we put in a $4000 tub or no tub at all. He didn't care if we bought our own material either - though he has contractor arrangements as well so you aren't left searching for suppliers. Two things struck me as remarkable during the project. Once we told him we wanted a tiled insert in the shower. After we did the insert, it looked terrible (not because of craftsmanship, but because we were using subway tiles and destroyed the beauty of the long lines). He took it out and redid the tiles, no questions asked. Also, when removing the load bearing wall, it turned out to have unexpected plumbing. That project had his crew working into the night, and they rerouted all the plumbing - again, no extra "surprise" cost. Hershe is an honest general contractor, his crews courteous, and I could provide countless other small stories of attention to details, but too numerous to list. We look forward to using him again to do our kitchen.

Hershey Calderon, the owner is professional, fair, polite and his staff does good work. We have used them for several renovations. We highly recommend him.
