Dry Rot and Termite Damage – 5 Stars!

I can’t express how happy I am with the work Capital Builders that did on our house. David and his crew stepped into a nightmare when we discovered dry rot and termite damage to the back of our house of a scope we could not have foreseen.  It was definitely nerve racking to face not only the initial damage we found out about, but how extensive it became. David was sensitive to how he communicated bad news to us as he kept us informed.  Since the scope of the work was unknown, David charged man-hours instead of a flat rate which made sense due to the nature of this job. It was very difficult, though, not knowing until the end of the job what the total cost was, which, while it was higher than expected, was totally fair due to the top notch quality of work and attention to detail.  Since man-hours were charged, updates to follow the costs would have better prepared us to know what to expect for the final invoice. David took pictures to share all the damage with us as he found it since we weren’t there during the day, so we could stay informed.

David’s transparency and honesty was very refreshing. Because of his transparency, we completely trusted David and his crew with all the work that they did. He patiently explained anything we didn’t understand, spelled out where our money was going and gave us choices to keep our costs down. He communicated in a timely manner answering emails when we had questions. We found it worked best to get answers to our questions by keeping emails short and asking a direct question in the email title. There were a few extra things done free of charge for us which we were extremely grateful for. One project in particular went way above and beyond what either of us expected, but they saw it through to the end without hesitation or taking any compensation. David and his crew take pride in their work and it shows. Miguel’s dedication to his work and the quality of his work were admirable. Besides this huge month long job David did for us, we also hired him for two smaller jobs. In the course of one of those jobs, more damage was found on the front of our house, which David shared with us through pictures, that we also had him repair. This damage would not have been discovered if Miguel had not found it as he was caulking the rest of our house. I know repairing this damage now will save us from extensive damage in the future. At times, we were offered the possibility of Saturday work being done, which we agreed to. He has since re-sided the remainder of our house and it looks great! We had a hiccup with determining window trim that would work aesthetically for us and meet the builder’s requirement to prevent future damage, but after much consideration and a lot of thinking outside the box, a solution was found. David sticks to his principles to ensure he can do the best quality work that will stand the test of time. I highly recommend David and his crew for repairs or any home projects or improvements!

Recessed Lighting

Capital Builders did a fabulous job with our recess lighting job. David and his crew are amazing, patient and efficient. I would recommend them for any home remodel, build or construction need.

They were very easy to work with … from Houzz

“We had Capital Builders replaced our front door and some thermal pane windows that had lost their seal. They communicated well and kept us informed, providing options and information that helped us through the process. They were very easy to work with, and the work was top notch.”

Review for Capital Builders – Houzz

“We contacted David Sideras at Capital Builders out of urgent need to make dry rot repairs found during a pre-sale inspection of our home in December of 2018. Despite his full schedule, he made his crew available to us within a few days. I should mention here, we made this contact from out of state and largely by internet connections. We finally met about 2 weeks into the project after we returned home, and the work he had been doing was first rate, professional and as promised and ahead of deadline. As well as the needed repairs, he thoroughly inspected the rest of the house and made important improvements to mitigate the reoccurrence of issues leading up to the need for repair. We found David and his crew to be trustworthy and honest and will not hesitate to rely on him again for other larger projects, and will refer family and friends to him for their home project needs.”

Testimonial from Houzz

“We highly recommend using Capital Builders for your next construction project. In early 2017 they helped us complete a basement fit-out project that our family had been putting off for years. At our first meeting they provided constructive input and innovative design ideas that showed they have an abundance of expertise in the construction industry. They worked with us on their cost bid proposal to make adjustments that met our goals and budget. During construction they avoided pitfalls by staying in constant contact with us and keeping us informed on the progress. They handled unforeseen conditions with understanding and worked hard to keep the project budget in line. We were impressed with their professionalism, communication style, and design input throughout the entire project. The work they performed has already added to the overall value of our home! Now we can finally use our newly renovated basement space they way we’ve always wanted. Thanks Capital Builders!”

Testimonial from Colleague on Houzz.com

“I have had the pleasure of working with Capital Builders on a couple of occasions and was impressed both times with their level of professionalism and building know-how. In one project, we had designed a couple of rather tricky elements (open staircase and wet room) and Capital Builders had no problem tackling both tasks and helping create two beautiful showcase element in the home”

Floating Home – Roof Replacement, posted on Houzz.com

“Capital Builders replaced the roof on my floating home,while it was 27 degrees outside, with complete professionalism, attention to detail, and swift completion. The crew was on time, co-ordinated with David Sideras’ direction, left no mess, and finished before he was scheduled. No doubt that their style of workmanship would benefit any project! They were respectful with each other, and with me–sometimes this is a rare thing to see. Would recommend them to anyone.”

New Construction: Positive Feedback posted to Houzz.com

“Really like the design for a small home. Please consider sliding windows for at least one window on each level so natural air can circulate the home. No cross breeze if only the patio door is open and not safe to have front door open unattended. Also would like laundry shelving. Just one or two above w/d. Would also be helpful to have TV cable not just up on wall. The trend is for wall-hanging TVs but there are still those who don’t and don’t want wires running everywhere. Like the position of windows, preventing neighbors from looking into each others’ homes. Would be helpful to have vegetation ID and care guide in addition to appliance information. File folder with appliance information was great idea! Builder was very helpful post-closing with resolving move-in issues.”

“My project: increase patio from 10×50 to 24×50, add hot tub with privacy screen, cover 20×24 section of patio with clear roofing. Hiring Capital Builders was the best decision I could have made. During construction, the work area remained clean and organized. The sub-contractor teams (concrete, electrical, construction) worked well together and were genuinely pleasant to have on site. My patio has surpassed my expectations, came in under budget, and on time. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Capital Builders again.”

“I am a single grandmother who needs help with some small jobs around the house from time to time. I have hired David Sideras with Capital Builders a few times now and each time he has come out to my house and completed the work I have requested with care and expertise. He gets to work right away and doesn’t wast anytime while on the job. He has always done an excellent job, with a fair price and has always been respectful. I am so happy I found him because now I have someone I can rely on when I need help with repairs around my home. I would recommend him to everyone I know and have already told my family and friends.”

Remodel: Positive Feedback posted to Houzz.com

“We have a home that was built in 1941 and we had a few projects we wanted to tackle this spring before our 3rd baby arrived. I started conversations with David in February and all the work was complete by April. David came over and walked through the concerns we had with the house. He was able to help me focus on the top 3 items that fit within our budget. David took a holistic approach to the service he could provide, which ensured we were receiving comprehensive solutions.

The reasons I chose Capital Builders and the reasons I am happy with my choice are reliability, respect and quality. David is very responsive. He has a lot going on, but also made sure to get back to me in a timely manner. He also worked to establish timelines and then deliver on those promises. David is also very respectful of the fact that you have other things going on in your life. He made sure to find a good balance between progress and our capacity to be available. He also was very cognizant of our needs and did his best to accommodate them. Finally, Capital Builders are very particular about the quality of the work. Everything is thought of on a project and no pieces are left undone. For example, one of the windows that was delivered had a defect. They noticed it and brought it to my attention right away. This caused a slight delay in the delivery of the work and caused the team to have to come back an additional day that they were not planning on. The defect on the window was in a place that it could have easily been hidden with molding, but they knew long term the defect would compromise the stability of the window. They did the right thing and I couldn’t be more appreciative.

Ultimately, I would highly recommend Capital Builders and David to anyone interested in building a home or going through some remodeling. If you have any questions for me or would like any more details to help you make your decision I would be more than happy to talk to you.”

“I recently had my first home built by Capital Builders, and it was such a wonderful and collaborative experience! David, the owner of the company, is very experienced and hands-on, and likes to be involved in every step of the creative process, offering advice on which quality materials to select, experience with what will last, and has a vast knowledge of the long-term and short term costs of almost anything home-related.

As a first-time home buyer, I had no idea what I was getting into, so I was happy to have him just a text or an email away if I had any questions about the construction, appliances, fixtures or even paint and flooring. The fact that I was highly involved in the design of the home was a huge plus for me, as I am a designer by trade, and David was such a saint to put up with all my additions, changes and upgrades to the kitchen, flooring, bathrooms etc. It was so reassuring to be working with a builder who was open to new ideas and to thinking outside the box.

Even now that I have moved in, David is close by, working on other construction in the neighborhood, and he has continued to check in to see if everything is running smoothly and working as it should. Overall, this was such a good experience – especially in the scary process of designing and purchasing my first home! I would highly recommend Capital Builders for any type of home build, remodel, or even just for consultation and advice!”

Relocate Laundry Room, Home Maintenance

“Capital Builders is a fine, reputable company. They are professional and organized. As a homeowner, I have had opportunity to work with many different contractors specializing in an array of disciplines. Few I would work with again. However, Capital Builders is one of the best. I asked them to move my laundry room to a different area of my house. The job involved electrical, plumbing and drywall repair. It was orchestrated with little disturbance to our household. They were clean and polite…personally and professionally. I would recommend them to anyone.”

“I hired Capital Builders, LLC to do a complete remodel/reconfiguration of a busy healthcare clinic. Their amazing insight into our needs and design choices quickly alleviated an internal “impasse” my staff and I had reached. We soon accepted their very reasonable bid. They were more than accommodating with project timing to reduce impact on our business. Their work quality was beyond our expectations and there were no “surprise” cost overruns. They receive my highest rating.”

Real Estate Broker: Positive Feedback posted to Houzz.com

“I am a licensed real estate broker in the Portland area who has the pleasure of working with David Sideras of Capitol Builders for the past 7 years.
One of the strongest things I can tell you about David is that his work is always impeccable!
He never cuts corners & is a perfectionist when it comes to the finer details.
He has always practiced the philosophy of “Either you do it right or you don’t do it at all”
I have also often been impressed with his uncanny ability to come up with a design that will compliment any space.
You will definitely be impressed if you hire Capital Builders for your building needs!”

“David Sideras who is Capital Builders provided friendly, cordial and professional service in all phases. Would have rated with 5 stars but the sub contractor he selected to replace my houseboat’s metal roof had to return twice before the chimney collar was waterproofed to rain. But David was very responsive to the leak problem and did his best to get the sub-contractor to do timely repairs required. I would strongly endorse the company and will definitely call David if I have future home repair needs.”

Home Remodel: Feedback posted to Houzz.com

“We have known David Sideras, as friend, for years and always liked his work. We liked his sense of design and the quality of his work. A couple of years ago, after talking to multiple GC’s about remoding our home, and getting bids that were obviously generic and not well thought out, we decided to risk our friendship and asked David to bid on the project.

His bid was well thought out, and actually pretty reasonable, considering we were doing a whole-house remodel from the sheetrock out. The most surprising thing was the timeline — He said he could have it done in two months.

Our neighbors immediately started betting on when it would be done, with the favorite bet being 6 months or longer. It actually took 2 and a half months, not because of anything David did, but because the first kitchen sink we chose, we didn’t like, and it took 3 weeks to get another sink.”

Full Remodel

“I’ve known David as a friend for years and have always admired his work. It is well done and of high quality. When the time came to hire a general contractor for our full-house remodel, we interviewed a lot of contractors, but, based on the quality of work we saw, his integrity, and personable nature, David was our hands-down choice. Since working with David as a client, I’ve come to admire how hard he works to provide good value for the money, and keep the job on schedule.”
