Testimonials

Nearly all of our work comes in one way or another from client referrals, so happy clients are our biggest asset. Here is what some of our past clients have had to say about their experience...

 

"Over several decades of home ownership I have used building contractors for many home and remodeling projects and can truly say that Ben and his crew from Green City Builders are the most competent and thorough contractors I have ever worked with. It is evident that they take pride in the quality of their work and in their relationship with their customers.  Ben came up with very creative design ideas for my small kitchen and the remodel turned out better than I could have imagined.  I have no hesitation in recommending Green City Builders for any project large or small."

"We found Green City Builders by asking a neighbor after seeing what a wonderful job they'd done on their house. We are so glad we did. The crew at Green City is amazing--not only were they hardworking, honest, and took pride in their work, they were also nice people, people with whom you don't mind sharing your home with for 6-8 months. All the work done was top-notch quality. Green City's charges are not the cheapest; however the quality of workmanship and peace of mind that comes from knowing that the job would be done right was well worth it. After the job was completed, Ben (owner) was very responsive about coming to complete small tasks remaining, which I know from experience is not always the case after the bulk of the job has been completed. We would definitely use Green City Builders for any future projects, and highly recommend them to others."

"Ben at Green City Builders is a rarity among contractors, a real find.  When I started my major remodel, friends and family told me to prepare to be frustrated and to be taken advantage of.  I kept waiting, but those feelings never arose during the half-year project because, when there was an issue, Ben addressed it immediately and fairly.  He was straightforward throughout the process.  His estimates proved accurate and any deviations were noted early.  He was generous with his time when assisting with material selection, and his suppliers and subcontractors were top-notch.  HIs connections with one supplier saved me thousands of dollars.  There may be other contractors out there who are honest and highly skilled, but Ben is also super smart and creative and has an excellent design sense.  He came up with many clever, unsolicited ideas and always had a creative solution when needed.  The team he has gathered around him also is impressive.  They were polite, clean, prompt and highly skilled.  I had the sense that Ben's whole crew really wanted to be remembered for a job well done.  They all seemed to take personal pleasure in pleasing the client.  I look forward to working with Ben on the next project, and I recommend him without reservation."

Madison Park Client

"Green City Builders has done some great work on our house - both exterior and interior.  They have a versatile skill set that always results in quality work - they have repaired the soffett and facia around our roof; rebuilt a retaining wall; and remodeled our bathroom.  Ben always offers fair prices and lets you know what your options are - he has become our main 'go to' person for house projects that we can't do on our own, and we always recommend him to friends whenever we have a chance."

Madison Valley Client

"A few years back we found a leak in our roof and decided it was time to add the second story (three bedrooms and two bathrooms) we’d always planned on doing. As it was such a huge undertaking (it ended up being a near-complete tear-down and rebuild), I really took my time to interview as many architects, contractors and builders as I could, and in the end, couldn’t have been happier with the team who built us not just a house, but a home we will cherish for a lifetime.

 

Ben and his team were responsible for the demolition, the framing on our house, and also the finish carpentry work. I lost count of how many subcontractors came through my house and commented on (read: complimented) how the framing was SO well done; apparently solid framing makes everybody else’s job a LOT easier, and folks were very grateful; I believe such praise from industry professionals does not come lightly. Ben was so competent and level-headed, he really made the stress of being out of our house manageable and bearable. I also truly appreciated how he hired trustworthy, polite and respectful individuals for his crew – with my toddler and baby visiting the site with me almost every day, I really appreciated what a safe, clean and pleasant environment they created.

 

Our architect had such a positive experience working with Ben that she hired him for several subsequent projects. I, myself, have happily recommended Ben to several of my friends. If I need work done around my house, I never bother interviewing anyone else; when I finally get to start my dream kitchen or make the mother-in-law suite downstairs a reality (I always have plans!), Ben will be the only builder I call. I certainly am more than happy to encourage anyone needing a general contractor or builder, for projects large or small, to engage the services of Ben Sharaf and Green City Builders."
