Review by in Fallbrook, CA
Our finished product exceeded our expectations! Our project manager, Royce, and our field technician, Kevin, were extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the project. Their communication was professional and to the point. Kevins assistant, Chandler, was fantastic and always kept the job site clean. We love our new kitchen!
Response by Classic Home Improvements: Thank you so very much for your review, it is truly appreciated and your kitchen is absolutely stunning, we love it!!

They were very nice people with good customer service but were in a hurry to get the job finished and move on to the next job and as a result, the quality of the materials used and the finish work was not up to my expectations. They used inferior wood for the surface of my deck and railings with many knots, imperfections and saw marks showing! I assumed that they would hand pick the best wood from the lumber yard for the deck surfaces and then sand and paint the wood for a nice uniform smooth surface. As a result, I have asked them to come back and sand and replace many of the surface wood they used. For the amount i paid, ( they were not the lowest bid) I expected a very nice smooth wood deck. I did not get that.
Response by Classic Home Improvements: Ken, thank you very much for your business and we appreciate that you mentioned in your review that we have a nice team with good customer service. I am sorry you felt the team was in a hurry, we do try to start and complete projects as quickly as possible, but it is for the benefit of the clients, not so we can move on to the next project (most of our customers want their jobs completed as quickly as possible). I appreciate you bringing it to our attention that we did not properly set expectations. Wood is a natural element and therefore will have knots and imperfections, we are happy to come out and perform any additional sanding you may like but the only way to have a completely uniform appearance is to use synthetic wood decking (composite decking, such as Trex). Going forward we will be sure to have more detailed conversations with clients to set expectations properly. Again, thank you for your business and for your feedback. Respectfully, Nicole Crocker

Review by in Oceanside, CA
The Owner is very trustworthy and an EXCELLENT salesman. The work result from a $30K+ bathroom remodel was very painful due to personnel changes and sub-par sub performance and job supers being idiots. Cabinets did not fit, had to redesign the project. I had constant bickering over work to be done correctly and mistakes they made and they tried to tell me it was acceptable. I am not an idiot. I HAD to keep a punch list of work/progress or it would have been a disaster. I DO NOT want to tarnish their rep BUT I would never hire or recommend them to anyone I like. Work was done in May-Aug 2018. I hope they have changed.
Response by Classic Home Improvements: Hi Joseph I have sent you a private message as I am concerned about this review. Work was completed on your home on September 17th, 2015 (not 2018 as you suggested). Yes, many things have changed over the last 4 years and I can not comment on your project or any flaws our team had at that time because our team has changed so significantly over the years. We continually strive for improving processes and procedures (now, just as we did back then). We never leave a project until clients say they are 100% satisfied with the end result and my notes reflect that of your project. If you have a warranty or customer service concern please feel free to reach out to me directly, I am more than happy to make sure you are well taken care of. Regards, Nicole Crocker

Review by in Temecula, CA
Simply the best, a shining star in Socal. From the initial meeting with Gordie Guthrie super salesman and great guy to the final OK with Managers Dan White and Royce Rams Ramswick it was about as smooth as it could get. Kelly Walla does and absolutely superb job of helping you pick out everything, Kelly is a wizard with design. The star of the bunch is technician Kevin Kries, what an eye for detail this guy has, give Kevin a raise! Chandler is an up and coming amazing worker as well, there whenever you need him. Nicole Crocker and the office staff are great to work with too getting back to you almost immediately if you have a question or problem. The Pergola turned out perfect.

Review by in Carlsbad, CA
We are absolutely floored with the service that we received from Classic Home Improvements. From start to finish, they took care of every detail. They helped us modify our house from an embarrassment of a home, to one of beauty and functionality that we never realized that it could be could be. Throughout the process the team dealt with our ever-changing demands and addressed our every concern. We couldn’t be happier with the service we received. Andrea, Kelly, Yvonne, Kevin, Shane, Stephanie, Joe, Chandler, and Royce the super star provided us with the best service we ever experienced. The crew was at our home on time every day. We enjoyed seeing a steady progress they made. Everyone was friendly, helpful and courteous. This made us comfortable with them being alone in our home. We have had our share of bad contractors, it was refreshing to work with an organization that puts their customers first.
Response by Classic Home Improvements: Thank you so very much, both for your business, and for your amazing review of everyone you worked with! What an absolutely amazing tribute, we truly appreciate it!

Review by in Riverside, CA
I hired Classic Home Improvements for several projects including a kitchen remodel, bathroom renovation, roof repair, and stucco work. Before I hired them I met with 3 other contractors. One was MUCH higher and the other one was significantly less but couldn't handle all the projects so I would have had to find another contractor for the outside work. I hired them because they were one of the only contractors I met with who could do all the projects and their price seemed reasonable. They were very helpful with designing my kitchen and bathroom, I am not so great at selecting colors that go well together so it was nice to have that help. I liked that they gave me a calendar so I knew what was going to be happening every day. I also liked that they gave me an update every day on the project. I will probably use them again in a few years when I remodel my master bathroom. I would definitely recommend hiring CHI for any major remodel.

Review by in Murrieta, CA
From the beginning to the end of our project Classic Home Improvements has been a pleasure to work with. Starting with their quick and timely response from our Sales Representative, Gordie Guthrie. Gordie listened to our needs and was extremely knowledgable regarding what the project would entail. He was able to give us a bid within a few days that was right in line with 2 other bids we received. We chose to go with Classic Home because of many factors including their project manager Royce Ramswick. Royce kept in constant contact with us throughout the project. If we did have a glitch, (and there will always be a glitch), Royce addressed it right away to resolve it. We were also very impressed with the crews that work with Classic Home. Kevin, Zach, Desi, (to name a few and there many others), were all professional and cleaned up the site every time before they left for the day. We had a terrible experience years ago and Classic Home has renewed our faith in what a great contractor experience can be. Classic Home Improvements, responsiveness, attention to detail and quality of work are top notch!! We highly recommend Classic Home Improvements & would definitely use them for future projects. I can't say enough how much I appreciate this company for making our experience not just painless but most definitely pleasurable. Thank you Classic Home Improvements for helping our dreams come true!!
Response by Classic Home Improvements: Thank you so very much for your business and for sharing your experience!!
