5.0 Trina R. San Antonio, TX

I have worked with Luke this past year on a total remodel of my mid sixties home. Insulating and dry walling the garage and opening up the living and dinning areas. The work is great the team is great. The come when they say do the work as ask and clean up the sight. Luke is my contractor for life.

5.0 Pam M. New Braunfels, TX

They did a very good job on my small kitchen update. My cabinets were painted and turned out better than I expected. New countertops, lighting and sink look great. Iâ m especially pleased with how fast the the project was completed and very fair pricing. I would recommend 1st Rate Construction. They guarantee their work for one year and although I havenâ t had any issues, I feel they would certainly live up to this commitment.

Response from Company:

Pam you are great. Thanks for the opportunity to making your kitchen awesome. We definitely had fun with your project. Thanks so much

5.0 Heather J. Cibolo, TX

We just finished a major remodel on our 1970s ranch-style house with 1st Rate Construction (removing walls and installing beams, complete gut and rebuild of the kitchen, closing up doorways, and installing new doors). Their work is top-notch and we are very pleased with the outcome. And while it took longer than what James (the estimator) told us, it was worth the wait in the end. Once they got started, the progress they made daily was impressive. As can be expected there were some hiccups and stressors along the way, but Luke and Sam really know what they are doing and made us feel at ease with the whole process. Sam did the lions share of the work and we have decided that there is not anything he does not know how to do. He is fantastic! These really are a good group of guys who do good, quality work. They showed up when they said they would, they were fairly priced, they were respectful in our home, and they were as clean and organized as you can be busting out walls. In short, we are very pleased with our experience. The kitchen is beautiful. Everyone that sees it says it looks like it came from a magazine. We love it, and we are enjoying working in our new space. We would highly recommend 1st Rate to anyone, and we plan to use them again once we have saved up to remodel our bathrooms. Thanks, 1st Rate Construction! If you ever need a positive referral, please do not hesitate to ask!

Response from Company:

Heather. Thank you so much. Your kitchen was an absolute adventure. Please post pics when you can. I would love for all viewers to check them out. Thanks for being so nice throughout the remodel. Thank u

5.0 Arlen B. San Antonio, TX

Great relationship, trustworthy, though, professional, and personable

5.0 Barbara L. New Braunfels, TX

1st rate construction really did live up to their name. They were always on the job when they said they would be there and I cannot say enough good things about their quality of workman. Luke was really involved from start to finish to make sure everything was the way I want it. Sammy and Joey were terrific. Countertop install within 3 days, and backsplash within 2 days. And recess lighting with all the patchups, cant even tell my grotesque flourecant box lights were there! Thanks so much

4.5 Bill S. Universal City, TX

Great team dedicated to meeting your needs. Very fair pricing.

5.0 Ace A. San Antonio, TX

Luke and his entire team at 1st Rate Construction were amazing from day one! My wife and I had to fire a previous contractor for a kitchen remodel in which the other company did absolutely nothing for 3 months. It was a nightmare being without our kitchen and sink. Luke came in and saved us from this horrendous endeavor. The whole process with 1st Rate only took a little over a month, but when 1st Rate actually started work in our home, they were finished in one week. We were blown away by their work ethic, workmanship, and commitment to satisfaction. We LOVE our new kitchen, and cannot be more grateful to Luke and the entire 1st Rate Team! On a personal note, as a 20 year military veteran, 1st Rate provided peace of mind from start to finish and went above and beyond to make sure we were 100% satisfied. We are indebted to Luke for what he did for us, and look forward to future projects! Look no further for all your construction needs, 1st Rate is top notch!

Response from Company:

Thanks ace. Your usaa claim nightmare got resolved. And your kitchen came out outstanding. Save my number. You are great

5.0 Jack B. San Antonio, TX

“1st Rate Construction, LLC” is exactly as the name implies. We are extremely happy with the work they have done. This is the second time we have used this company and we will continue too use them. They were on time and completed the job on time. The quality of their work is fantastic. The owner (Luke) is hands on. He is extremely professional and polite. We are very comfortable with having him and or his employees in our home. You will not be disappointed.

Response from Company:

Jack. Thank you for your review. I appreciate your business. And all our Alien talks. Talk to you soon.

5.0 Kari I. San Antonio, TX

Absolutely loved having these gentlemen remodel our home. They are all so knowledgeable and kind. Felt very safe having them in my home. Luke, Sammy, Joe, Joey and Tyler I can’t thank you enough for all your hard work and dedication I absolutely love my home!

Response from Company:

Kari You and your husband were so genuine. I really loved the connection we had all the way from the start. Your kiddos are very cool. Your bathrooms, bedrooms, and custom doors without a doubt should be in a magazine. I will post your pics on my website. I look forward to projects in the future. Let me know when you want us to paint your cathedral living room. Thanks again!

5.0 Charles K. Schertz, TX

Luke and his team did an amazing job on our patio. They poured a 12' x 38' patio. No cracks so far. They textured and then stained it to perfection. They cleaned up after the job and were extremely pleasant to work with. A definite future hire. You can trust Luke to do what he says he will do for what he says he will do it for. Great quality.
