Review by in Pacific Grove, CA
I had a relatively small job using my own design choices (I'm good at this) and Nick was happy to work with me. He was great to work with and his team and sub-contractors did a great job. I got new countertops in the kitchen and two baths, new sinks & faucets, new gas cooktop and a totally new shower. Nick and his people really listened to me, paid attention to details, and routinely aksing how I wanted something done. I would hire him again in a heartbeat. Thanks Nick!

Review by in Marina, CA
My wife and I would highly recommend Hovick Design for any remodeling project. He is a consummate professional with a discriminating eye for quality design, materials, and workmanship. His crew, especially his foreman, Jim Le Blanc, were also an impressive lot. They never took shortcuts or shirked their work or responsibilities. They were also very respectful and considerate of our privacy. Our house was beset with decades of neglect compounded with previous shoddy design, materials, and workmanship that was starting to render the residence non-habitable and failing to adequately meet the increasing needs of a debilitated elderly parent, who is receiving constant care. Over the course of many months, Nick was able to magically transform a rather dreadful and inadequate, shabby hovel into a pleasant, homey abode full of endearing charm. The transformation was astonishing, considering the very poor condition of the residence that were beginning to get increasingly dire with each passing month. But Nick rode to the rescue. We especially liked the proposals he made to resolve the many shortcomings of the residence. And not once did Nick ever sacrifice quality as he worked with us to keep the project within budget. Naturally, when a contractor tackles a project to remake an old residence bereft of any compliance with the standard building codes for habitability, he's going to uncover a host of problems - a can of worms is a more apt description as we were to discover about our quirky old home. Whenever this would happen, Nick would always present us with several low cost solutions/options without sacrificing quality. Because of the continuous methodical and conscience consultation, that he aptly demonstrated to us throughout the entire process, to maximize the renovation as originally budgeted, we were able to address the many other critical shortcomings of the residence that we initially did not think was possible. The result was a metamorphosis nothing short of a miracle. Not only is the house meeting the essential building codes required for a habitable residence, but it also meets the critical needs of an elderly parent that needs constant supervision and care. But the house is more than a serviceable domicile redesigned for a more efficient utilitarian function. It's become a comfortable, inviting home that warmly welcomes anyone lucky enough to stride across it's humble threshold. Thank you, Nick, and may God bless you and your lovely new wife, Katy.
Response by Hovick Design: We are grateful for the opportunity to provide you with excellent service, and meticulous workmanship. It has been a pleasure working with you and your husband, Dave. (as well as Dexter and Tiger). Thanks again, for the whole Hovick Design team, Nick Hovick

Review by in Carmel, CA
Nick spent many hours discussing our project with us and working with us to visualize what we wanted. .Nick worked w/us on ordering the appliances and the start of work to meet our schedule. The crew was quality conscious and did a great job in the time frame we agreed upon. The crew kept us involved in the day to day work to make sure we got what we wanted. The attention to detail was great as with any required adjustments so that everything went as planned. They would clean up after themselves which made living in a small home much easier. Highly recommend Nick and his team!
Response by Hovick Design: Thank you. It was a pleasure working with you both. I'm gratified that you are pleased with the results - the whole team is!

Review by in Monterey, CA
Hovick Design did a full remodel of my kitchen and bath. They also rebuilt my laundry room and drywalled one of my bedrooms. The house is 100 years old but this did not even phase them. The entire job went very well from design and permitting to end of construction. The great experiance of Nick and his staff really showed. I am very satisfied with the end result. If you are looking for a high-end professional at a competitive price, look to Holvick Design in the Central Coast area of California.

Review by in Marina, CA
It was a pleasure to work with Nick on our project. It was a complete kitchen remodel. We love how he designed our cabinetry and the layout to get the most out of the space. He listened to our ideas and helped us through the entire project. When we had a question he was always available which was great since there is always homeowner anxieties. My wife and I couldn't be happier with the finished project and the entire experience. Thank you Nick Hovick!

Very friendly and professional. In addition to kitchen work, major work included a glass sliding door installation in place of a window and a redwood deck outside the new door. Nick is a great guy to work with.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
