5.0 Bruce R.

Bruce Robinson I would unreservedly recommend Lionel Martinez, L Martinez Construction LLC, for any home construction job, from a remodel to a new home build. Lionel is a superb builder as well as an honest businessman. We hired Lionel for a significant construction job on our existing home. Lionel laid out the job in detail, provided a thorough estimate, and came in on budget. Based on that excellent experience, we had him build us a cabin in the mountains. Lionel was an exemplary contractor, laying out the project, establishing both fix prices and allowances based on the component of the job, and stuck to these prices without the shifty add-ons that you get from many contractors. His workmanship is superb, and he has a network of subcontractors who also performed at a high level. He ensured that his workers and subs kept the job site clean and completed the work to his exacting standards, even if that required additional work. Finally, he worked with my wife and me to make sure the finished product would exceed our expectations. In the case of our cabin, there was no mystery about the budget, and no surprises - the cabin came in on budget as well. Having had other experiences with contractors that left us unsatisfied, I can say that from the workmanship to the budget, Lionel Martinez exceeded our expectations in every way.

This is Donna Robinson. Below is my review for L Martinez Construction LLC (Lionel Martinez) L Martinez Construction LLC has completed three building projects for us. The first project was a remodel of an existing home. This project included the demolition of our existing front entry, the addition of a large front porch, decorative rock work on the exterior walls and the bricking of the exterior porch. The entire existing home was reroofed with industrial grade shingles as well. We were very happy with the quality of Lionel s finished work. We had bid this project out to 3 other highly recommended contractors and although Lionel was not the lowest bidder, we had the most confidence in his proposal because he included the most detail on his bid and had a firm grasp on the time frame for completion of the project. His proposal showed me how organized Lionel is and how much of a stickler for detail he is. For me, both are very important character traits when hiring and working with someone. As we progressed through the project we learned just how knowledgeable, experienced and resourceful Lionel is. It was also clear he is very selective on subcontractors he hires, expects exceptional work out of them, and actively monitors their work. Finally, at the close of the project we could see that not only does he accept only high-quality work from himself but he is on top of every detail on costs of his projects. He presented us with a detailed report and walked my husband through every line item. Lionel is an honest businessman as well. We were very happy with our whole experience with the first project, so when we decided we wanted a heated driveway installed (2nd project) we went straight to Lionel. He helped us choose and plan for an electric heated driveway system. He prepared a bid detailing all costs including demolition of the existing driveway. Lionel did an excellent job installing our heated driveway, monitoring the electric installation and personally executing the concrete pour from start to finish. Next, we decided we wanted to build a cabin in the remote northern NM mountains (3rd project). Of course, knowing this would be a particularly challenging project, I asked Lionel if he would work with us one more time. He worked with us on every detail of this project. Lionel worked with our home designer on planning and details and navigated the complex permitting process. Next, he prepared the site by moving the electrical lines underground on our property, working with electricians to physically prepare the trenches and conduits to move these electrical lines underground and finally built the cabin. This was a huge undertaking, given the remote location and challenging building conditions. The result was A++. We simply could not be happier with the outcome of the projects Lionel completed for us and more grateful to Lionel and for Lionel. My view is: If you are fortunate enough to have Lionel work on a project for you, you will be very happy with the results and with the whole experience. I have every confidence recommending him as your contractor/project leader. Donna Robinson
