Our Clients

I have the best group of clients. Over the years, I have felt supported when you recommend me. I appreciate the repeated business that you give me. I am grateful for the time it takes to review us online or recommend me on your neighborhood listserv. I am in disbelief each time you are willing to wait months to get on our schedule. I am thankful for your patience when I messed up, created dust, or ran into a hitch, and you still stood by us. The kindness and patience you show my crew with cookies, drinks, tips, praise, etc. will never be forgotten.

Shy is hands down the best contractor I've ever worked with. This was the second project she did for us a complete bathroom renovation. Everything was done to perfection, on time, and within budget. Her team is amazing - hard-working, reliable, and real masters of their craft. The tile work is amazing. Also, she has impeccable taste, so you don't really need a designer if you work with her. Plus, she is such an interesting and charming person, I almost wished the project went on for a little longer:) ! Thank you, Shy, and I hope we can convince you to come back some day!

Shy/Ant Builders is the very best contractor in this area. We have an old house and have had several contractors during the years and none but Shy have been asked back. This is the 6th project we have completed with Shy and her company. She truly is amazing. Her crew is amazing as well, a pleasure to have in the house. Very polite, very helpful and they absolutely clean up every night! Everyone is great with our dogs and cats. Shy's recommended materials suppliers are all great, we have had nothing but good experiences with them as well. We have recommended Shy and will continue to do so. We look forward to the next project with her!

Hard for me to add new praise of Shy and her guys beyond the other reviews -we love our new bathroom, on time and on budget. Plus, they took on handyman type add on projects elsewhere in the house, fixing problems other "specialists" like roofers never could. Not only was Shy incredibly responsive, smart, budget conscious, and the like, she became part of the family during the project. Our 17-year-old Jack Russell was having some GI problems during the time ANT was working on our bathroom. Shy took it upon herself to send me updates during the day how the dog seemed and took her for walks to cheer her up. WOW Shy is popular because of all the great qualities you read in these reviews. The only downside with her is you might have to be patient because she is in demand, as she should be.

They communicate to a level that cannot be matched. This is the best part of Ant Builders. Getting ahold of her was easy and we found her to be responsive at every step. What we liked as well was not feeling nervous about changes we wanted. She is a “can do” type of person and no drama. Her entire crew was courteous, and you can tell they care about your home. Love it!
