As first-time home renovators, we were understandably nervous about picking a general contractor given all the horror stories one hears. Which is why we almost don't want to write this review--we selfishly want E&L Creations to stay as low-profile as possible so that we can keep them all to ourselves for future projects. The first thing that struck us was Ryan's level of professionalism. All aspects of the job were considered and mapped out in the quote and he was upfront about any potential areas of concern. Our questions throughout the process were handled quickly and earnestly. And weeks later when we threw Ryan curveballs on the design he hit homerun after homerun. It's also fitting that Creations is part of the business name, as their creativity and design ideas are as exceptional as any you might see on HGTV. But all that can't be attributed to Ryan alone, as his team is just as outstanding in their own right. Always courteous and accommodating, it's clear that they're the hard-working engine that makes the whole outfit run. We were consistently amazed at just how much they accomplished over the course of a single day. All that being said, if you want a reliable contractor that does quality work for a fair price, E&L Creations should be your first call.
