Chris Peterson General Contractors Testimonials
To Whom It May Concern,
We recently just finished a very large project at our home with by adding a pool, RV garage and pool casita. We had decided to go with Chris Peterson Construction because there were other projects in our neighborhood that had been completed by him and his crew, and they were all very happy, including my sister and her husband.
In times we have met with other contractors on other projects, they could be very vague or even seem they are not totally sure what it would take to get the project completed. This was absolutely not the case with Chris Peterson. He was confident and able to give us a really good idea and plan to move forward so we were really clear on everything. Now that being said, we had some pretty large hiccups along the way with our HOA not allowing our project to move forward. Chris was there the whole way, very professional and working along with the HOA to get the project accepted. After a year of going back and forth with the HOA they finally accepted our project after several change orders. Chris was so fair and patient during a very frustrating process for us.
During the construction process he was so organized always keeping us updated on every little thing. It was so nice to have that so we did not have to question what was happening or why something may have been delayed. He takes a lot of pride in his work, and has a wonderful team working around him. Kyle was so amazing as well and has great taste in picking out options. They both have high standards as to how things should be finished. They have an incredible amount of integrity and in the end if there were things that they did not like or was not to their standard they were sure to fix it.
Construction projects can be quite stressful, but I was so glad to have chosen Chris Peterson for ours. This company really sets them self apart with outstanding customer service and has a great finished product. I would not hesitate to use them again for any future projects.
Thank you Chris, Kyle and the whole team at Chris Peterson- you were all such a pleasure to work with and have become like family to us! We will have so many great memories to come in our new pool casita and so many less headaches having our own RV garage!

The construction that you, your crew and subcontractors provided us, are of excellent quality! Not only did you exceed our expectations, but you completed the work on budget and in a timely fashion.
Our house renovation included room and bathroom expansion, driveway pavers retaining wall, kitchen remodel, hardwood floors, tile floors, new heating system, plumbing, electrical, new roof, and painting. All of the work was done by professionals. Your crew of Alex and Salvador, as well as the subcontractors, were easy to work with and they were good to have around as they were always cheerful and well mannered. The quality of your crews’ work and daily cleanup leave little doubt that your workers are to be commended.
As you proceed on other projects if your clients need a referral as to your general contracting skills, don’t hesitate to have them contact us.

I write this letter to recommend Chris Peterson General Contractors, Inc. My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Chris on the renovation of several areas of our home, which included our master bedroom and bath, hallway, secondary bath, kitchen floor, dining room floor, and living room floor. We recommend him highly and without reservation.
He was very helpful in determining the look we were trying to achieve. The design, paint, and lighting suggestions helped updated our home and made it something we are proud to show our friends.
In our master bedroom, a large outdated garden tub which was in front of a window (that was rarely opened because you had to get into the tub to use it) was removed and replaced with a sliding door with inside louvers that now leads onto a 4’x8’ deck which connects to the existing deck. There is now a lovely sitting area in our bedroom. The counter tops in the bath were tiled and new mirrors and lights were added, and the cabinets were updated. This was also done in our secondary bathroom.
Most of the remaining carpeting in the house was replaced with bamboo flooring which is beautiful. Plus, all existing slate in our kitchen and dining room was sealed with a high gloss product which made it all look new and is quite stunning.
Chis and his workers are very professional and when they left each day the are was tidy and Chris took special care to prevent any of the job dust from trailing throughout the house.
All in all, the remodel was done in a timely fashion and with care and precision. We are very happy with the outcome and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Chris Peterson and his workers.

My husband and I are writing this letter to express our satisfaction and gratitude in dealing with Chris Peterson General Contractor. Chris and his amazing team built a 30x40x12 workshop/garage for us in a rather remote and rural area in the North Valleys. From start to finish, his workers were always prompt and on time and if they were going to be late or got held up at another job site, we would always receive a courtesy phone call letting us know what was going on. The job stayed on schedule and they actually finished a few days earlier than scheduled!
Throughout this process we learned a lot with regard to building permits, engineering, and the cost of materials. We also ran into some hiccups with our archived site plan, which Chris took head on (site plan was completely incorrect) and got fixed for us. He helped ease our worries with regard to our budget and was one of the most competitive and HONEST with his bids (I interviewed 13 contractors… YES, 13 contractors). We actually stayed on budget until we moved the location of the structure. Chirrs just smiled and re-submitted the permits for us so the project could get underway. Chris quoted us what the average would be for the dirt work and gave us the original receipts for everything, justifying what that average would be and why. Even though we went a smidge over budget, it was comforting to know that he worked as hard as he could to get the costs down and kept us in the loop the whole time.
Chris Peterson General Contractor has proven to be nothing but professional, courteous, and skilled in doing any job or obstacle that is thrown at their way. We are BEYOND grateful that we chose Chis Peterson GC and we would 110% recommend them to anyone who wants exceedingly quality work done in a timely manner. Thank you for everything you did and for giving my husband his dream garage/workshop!!! Ahhhhh, I love that I can now park in my own garage and that it is not loaded to the ceiling with “his” stuff.
With Warm Regard,

I am writing this letter to recommend Chris Peterson General Contractors based on our excellent experience including their customer service and workmanship they demonstrated, from start to finish, on our residential project.
Our project was not as easy task. We wanted to remove a weight-baring wall, and Chris Peterson General Contractors presented an option that no other contractor was willing to offer. They placed a truss in the ceiling that eliminated the wall all together. They made the home look as though the wall was never there and took what we had envisioned and turned it into reality.
They were professional and paid great attention to detail on every aspect of the project in our home. We are extremely pleased with the outcome of their work, and highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great contractor.
Dear Chris, Lisa, Sal & Alex,
Thank you for all of your hard work, diligence, and attention to detail during the construction of our RV garage last summer. I appreciated your flexibility and understanding during the planning stage, which took the greater part of two months last spring. Since this was my first time accomplishing a custom project form conception, you were invaluable with your insight and advice. We are extremely happy with what we decide upon.
Once the permitting and HOA approval were finally completed and excavation began. Salvador worked very hard and was always very conscientious of our property and the safety of my family. And when the monolithic concrete pour was complete, Sal and Alejandro did an excellent job framing and roofing our garage. Even the building inspector remarked about how straight and plumb the framing was. Thank you, Sal and Alex, for all you did – especially trying to save my pine trees that had to be dug up!
Even though the project ran a little late of the original spring projection, we did say we weren’t on any timeline and the finished garage was well worth it. I have personally completed a few other projects inside and outside the garage since completion. And am always impressed with your fit and finish. Additionally, your support and responsiveness following completion are just as top-notch.
Thanks to all of you for a job well done in a most professional manner. It is no wonder why you are successful, and we are happy to recommend you as an excellent construction team. We wish you all the best.

We had Chris build an addition to our existing detached garage. My request was very specific in that we had plans for a shop with a car lift and 12-foot ceilings. I needed to tie into the existing structure with 10-foot ceilings. I needed to tie into the existing structure with 10-foot ceilings. The engineering required some additional shear wall where the rear wall was being removed from our existing garage. Chris gave me a number of options on the location and size of the shear making the decision much easier. Throughout the entire project the crew was friendly and professional. They made every effort to keep our property clean and made sure my temporary fence stayed in place to keep our dogs in the yard. Chris stayed in touch regularly letting me know exactly what the weekly and daily schedules were and who to expect on site.
Overall, we were extremely pleased with Chris and the quality and timeliness of his work. I would recommend him highly for your next project.

I am writing this letter in recommendation of Chris Peterson as a general contractor. I had the pleasure of working with Chris and his crew a few months back on my 24×44 L-shaped garage. Chris was involved in every decision that was made and also gave me some great ideas on what to do. Once the permitting and HOA documents were done, Chris and his crew were here almost every day at 8 a.m. and didn’t leave until the daily job was complete. Chris was very flexible and even worked in some last-minute details that I wanted, even after the plans were drawn up. Thank you, Chris Peterson, for the amazing job that you and your crew did and I am very pleased with the final project!

We just wanted to thank you for the great results on the RV Garage and Barn Project. We have moved everything into the RV garage and the barn that you relocated.
The relocation of the 25-foot barn over 700 feet (including bringing the electrical to the barn) worked out much better than we expected. We are still not sure exactly how you pulled that off.
The removal of the former metal carport and replacement with the 35 foot (12-foot-high door) by 245-foot RV garage worked out perfectly. The RV garage matches the house perfectly and the electrical system and garage door system work well. The surrounding plant life and irrigation systems are back in just the way they were before your project. Everything looks great. The cleanup leaves everything looking like this is part of the original house and property.
We appreciate that you adjusted things to our timeframe and that your employees and contractors went out of their way to make things right. Your own staff were extremely motivated to go beyond the expected and make the best results possible. They were always respectful and hard working. The extra house interior work turned out so well, including cabinets installation and doorway additions.
Thanks again! We will recommend you as a contractor to anyone interested and we will use you for advice on future issues or projects we might get involved with.
