“Cindy Edwards does excellent work. She is fair, honest and has a great attention to detail and “getting it right”. She is local and has many connections to the SLO community, including volunteer work with Habitat for Humanity where we first met. For these reasons we are (and will continue to be) repeat customers with CK Builders.

Our first project was a bathroom remodel. Being an engineer and hands-on type (but also a busy dad), it was difficult for me to accept that I just did not have the time or energy to put into the project myself. Cindy helped us figure out what we really wanted and needed.  She was able to re-create our bathroom remodel project from a magazine picture!

Because we have an active household, she worked around our schedule and minimized the extent the project impacted us with grace. We ended up asking her back for a much-needed energy upgrade project, which included asbestos abatement and a new roof. We are already realizing the savings of that investment and have seen a real drop in our energy bills. It’s great to have a real friend in this business!”

When our forced air furnace stopped functioning, we got one estimate for over $12,000 to replace the furnace and ducts. But then learned about the Energy Upgrade California Program and got referred to CK Builders. The intent of the program is to encourage participants to improve the efficiency of their home in all respects, and the participant receives a rebate based on the percentage of improvement proven.

Their Energy Division Manager gave us the straight story and found that we did not actually need a new furnace but we got new ducting and a more cost-effective package of repairs that significantly increased our home’s efficiency, comfort and air quality. It was just “really good karma”.  Their project manager, Bruce, “held our hands,” and walked us through every step with much expertise, but even more important, with much patience.  Not only did we qualify for $3700 in rebates, but we…

We are incredibly pleased with the outcome.  Our home has never been warmer or more comfortable.  We feel safer in our home because all the asbestos in our attic was removed by a haz-mat crew.  It is so much more efficient!  All the work was done in a most professional manner from scheduling the work to meet our convenience, to the details of matching paint where the registers were removed.  When we needed other professionals for work outside the scope of the energy upgrades, CK gave us the names of reliable subcontractors, and we were also extremely pleased with the quality and fairness of their work as well.

We would recommend C.K. Builders and particularly, Bruce Severance, to anyone who needs assistance with heating and ventilation concerns.

“When we bought our house and needed some remodeling done, we hired CK Builders. Cindy’s team did a top notch job adding an office room addition to our house. She brought in an architect and engineer and coordinated the project smoothly and professionally. We were so satisfied with the result that we hired CK Builders again to replace all of our decking, add wood floors to our upstairs and build out a custom walk-in closet.

Cindy and her team were always exceptionally respectful of our property and our privacy. Her team was very experienced and knowledgeable and the quality of their work was impressive. We had a great experience with CK Builders and look forward to working with them again”.
