I have found Home works to be very respectful, listening to my needs and very reasonable. I have also learned how they volunteer in the community to fix local schools, churches. This company has been around a very long time and they know the land, how to expedite the process and get the job done.
A little over 4 years ago, Homeworks built our home in Kaimuki. We researched the top 5 residential construction companies on island and met with most of them. We decided to sign with Homeworks because they were able to share detail of the process, quality of work and were very responsive in answering our millions of questions. (Big thanks to Kim Green) They did a demo of the old house and built the new house and worked with us every step of the way. The quality of work was great! We had a couple of issues working with our PM, however, Marshall and Sylvio (owners) were so amazing and exceeded expectations in their follow through. They take pride in their work and understand the importance of customer service! In the past month, we needed some repairs to be done in our home. Being that Homeworks built our home, we reached out to them. Like family, Sylvio stopped by within a day to do an assessment and the repairs were completed by their team in 2 weeks. Amazing! The thing that makes Homeworks stand out is the customer service by the owners and the relationship that they have with their clients. It can be years later and they still treat you like family, take care of you and make sure you're happy with the work they did. Great people, great work! We would highly recommend them and would use them again.
This is a long overdue review but my experience is almost exactly the same as Hiroko's (see her review) and with the same Homeworks employee too. George said he was going to meet us at our newly purchased home on Friday August 26th at 4 pm (I have the email to prove it). I was there at exactly the agreed upon time and made sure to adjust my work schedule (I'm a very busy doctor and work late hours) to ensure I made it on time. He called my cell phone 30 minutes past the appointment time to let me know that he could not make it as he was stuck in "traffic" and then he rescheduled for Tuesday the following week. I was back on Tuesday at the agreed upon time but George never showed up. Not even a call from him to cancel or to say he was running late. I waited for at least an hour in my newly purchased house before heading back to my old house where i was staying at that time. I continued to wait for a call from him as it would have been quick drive in case he was running late but I never got a call back. In fact, I had never heard from George or Homeworks Construction since. Needless to say, I was not going to call them back and give them my business anymore after this experience. With a work ethic like that, it is a wonder why they are still in business. Maybe it's from all the advertising they do.
I agreed with SA and Kathy H! We had an appointment with George and called us to postpone the appointment because he had to go to dentist. The second appointment he didn't showed up. I saw him and the company booth at Home show. If you wants job why they didn't take good care of customer?! I can not trust this company!
These guys took 2 yrs to complete a home renovation that was supposed to take 6months! Mismanagement, delays, etc. All across the board very dissappointed in work done.
I've worked with Homeworks on two projects and have a good experience both times. Tim did an excellent job of working with me to understand my vision and developed accurate estimates with appropriate allowances for my needs. At times I went over the allowances and sometimes my choices came in under. When I went over, the Homeworks group made sure that I knew that my choice was more than budgeted and I made my decision with that in mind. Sean is a great designer and gave me the kitchen of my dreams. Three years later, I still love it and get many compliments from friends and neighbors. Healther was my project manager and she is a wonderful person with great ideas who goes the extra mile to make her customers happy. One piece of advice that I can offier: Homeworks is a large firm and during the various phases of your project you will work with various Homeworks employees and also subcontractors. It is important for you to communicate clearly with each person who works on your project. Don't assume that everyone knows all the details that you discussed with another member of the team.
Used Homeworks for a design/build project and they worked very well with us. Gave suggestions, comments and very flexible. Project finished on time and they supported us even after completion. The entire project and process was not 100% perfect but who can guarantee that? As long as they support their work and us, what can one ask for? We are all happy with our new home and Homeworks.
