Chris Peterson General Contractors Testimonials
We contracted with CPGC in July 2018 to remodel our home in Lake Tahoe (Incline Village, NV). The remodel entailed a complete upgrade of a home constructed in 1972, bringing the house up to code, and adding a basement in order to expand the living space by 30%.
The project took more than a year due to the severe winter in 2018-2019 and many construction challenges attributed to how the home was originally designed, structural challenges, and increasingly (even as the project was happening) more complex, tedious local government requirements. Throughout the entire project, CPGC managed the construction schedule, change requests, procurement, all of the subs, and several multile-agency inspections and ensured a successful completion. We could not have done this project remotely from the Bay Area without our incredible project manager Kyle Boesen and the frequent, creative, out of the box thinking and collaboration with CPGC owner Chris Peterson. We highly recommend CPGC.

To whom it may concern,
I am writing this on behalf of Chris Peterson General Contractors. We were given a recommendation randomly by the pharmacist in a grocery store who overheard my conversation looking for someone. I consider myself very lucky that this person added his two cents to the conversation. Chris and Kyle were wonderful to work with from the beginning. They presented a very clear contract after listening to all my crazy ambitions for our property. We were a little worried starting the project going into winter 2018. You never know how Reno winters will be. We lucked out and the crew showed up to start all the excavation work. Right away I noticed that the CPGC crew was friendly and hardworking. Throughout the entire project I felt spoiled because this was a crew of people I knew I could trust with my home and to be around my family. Always friendly, always trustworthy and with smiles. Sal, Alex, Casey and Manuel were always there if I had a question and never once did they treat me as if I was getting in their way of doing their job. Kyle, as the project manager, was always reachable and there to step in if we were unable to be at the house to meet someone. For 13 months, the CPGC crew worked in all kinds of weather and without complaint. These are some seriously hard working and committed guys. It showed time and again that they enjoy their work and have a lot of pride in it. These guys worked through winter snow, having to shovel out when necessary to get to work, as well as, very uncomfortable summer temperatures. All of our friends enjoyed watching the process as well and couldn’t believe how well everything came together. The best part for me is that, Chris and Kyle understood my vision and didn’t try to convince me to change. Of course, there were adjustments here and there that had to make things to work the right way, and Kyle made the process very clear cut with change orders so that I knew where we were tracking against our projected cost. There was never a time where I wasn’t sure how much in we were (as one of my friends sadly experienced). It was a big reassurance for such an incredibly, large project. Now that our project is complete, we actually miss the crew being around with their smiling faces and great attitudes. We have had a few punch list items here and there but even after signing the project completion, Kyle has been extremely helpful in working out details at the end. I would highly recommend Chris Peterson General Contractors and we plan to use them for any future projects we tackle as well.
All the best with your future project.
To whom it may concern,
The purpose of this letter is to commend Chris Peterson General Contractors (CPGC) on the super project they completed on our property. We planned and constructed a detached structure that will serve as an art studio.
While we had challenges with our HOA and the building permit from Washoe County, the job took time, once these hurdles were addressed, construction moved along steadily and with total transparency. We are extremely happy with the design, quality of workmanship and professionalism of the Peterson team.
If you have plans for a construction project and desire true craftsmanship (and one that will be the envy of all your neighbors) look no further than the team at CPGC.
We thoroughly enjoyed our project!

Dear Chris Peterson:
It was a great pleasure working with you to build our new 30’x48’x16’ RV Garage/Shop at our new house. You, your crew, and your subcontractors (especially Brian, the electrician) are awesome to work with. Your attention to details and timely responses are rarity in the construction industry in this area. Based on our experience with other contractors, they are too busy to call us back or to show up to meet with us after having scheduled a time. You are accommodating and willing to work with us, and are flexible to meet with us on the weekends and the evenings. We are more than happy to be a customer reference for your future job bids. We have also spread the word to others in our development as well as among our friends.

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,
Ty & Tiffany La Riviere
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.
