Terrific Experience

“My wife and I had an absolutely terrific experience with this company. We decided that we wanted to add a loft to our home. So we got bids from a number of companies. HK wasn’t the absolute cheapest, but they were *very* affordable. And we just got a good feeling from Mark (the owner) and Chad (his site manager).  We’re so glad we went with them. They met all the basics – came in on budget and on time (except for a slight delay that was caused by the city). And the job was top-notch quality. Everyone we show the loft to assumes it was part of the original home – exactly the reaction we wanted.

But the greatest thing about this company was the people. At the time we had the work done, our son was very young, and overprotective parents that we are, we were worried about the noise and the dust. But they kept everything very clean, and were very respectful of our hours (delaying their start, for instance, until after it was time for him to wake up). And Chad and Mark are real quality family guys who were always so friendly to us and our son, and always so professional and polite on the job. The same goes for everyone else they brought in.
All in all, we couldn’t have asked for a better experience, and will definitely use this company again for any future construction work.” – Matt Z. San Diego, CA

5 Star Contractor

“My wife and I decided to add a loft to an area that was just a high ceiling.  HK Construction is an A1 5 star contractor.  Marc the owner is very detailed, by the book, completely honest and only uses quality products.  Every day we knew what they were going to do.  I can’t say enough at how great they were.  I would use them again and would recommend them to anyone.” – Dan R. San Diego, CA

Custom Closet, Totally Love it!

“HK Construction made a custom closet for my bedroom. I totally love it! They did a great job and it turned out exactly how I wanted it. The contractors were respectful of my time and my personal space. Because of this I’m going to use them again someday. Thanks guys!”– Carla A. Escondido, CA

Very Happy with Attic Room Conversion

“They did an attic to room conversion for me. Converted vaulted attic space into a storage room with stairs going up to it. Spent less on it than I was expecting to. Additionally they didn’t cut corners, just worked efficiently and gave me good prices on materials. Worked fast, upfront about services and performed as promised. Therefore I’m very happy with their work and the outcome.” – Brandy C. Encinitas, CA

Fast, Efficient, Affordable and Polite

“Marc Gieselmann and his crew did a great job on the office remodel of my motorcycle repair shop in Vista, CA. They were fast, efficient, affordable, and polite and did not leave a mess behind. They gutted the 1970’s era office. Repaired bad studs, repaired and re-wired some outlets, hung new dry wall including the ceiling then had it painted in two custom colors to match our company branding. The end result is it looks great and has a modern appeal that my customers like.

Since I have had bad experiences with other construction contractors in the past I know a good contractor when I see one. And that has been my good experience with HK Construction. I highly recommend them and will use them again when the need arises.” Vista Motorcycle. Vista, CA

Honest Contractors

“Honesty and integrity are hard to come by in businesses these days, especially with contractors. But I found a good one in HK Construction. They did a room addition on my home in Poway. They didn’t have the lowest price, but they did seem to do an exceptionally good job. Considering the high quality work and how easy they were to deal with, I’d say I got a super bargain. Thank you HK Construction. I’ll be recommending you to all my friends!” – Janice P. Poway, CA

Did a Great Job

“These guys did a great job for me. Designed and built to code a room addition over my 2-car garage. Converted empty useless space into a home office. Typing from there right now. They remodeled the outside of the garage so the upstairs addition matched the rest of the house and poured a new concrete driveway to replace the busted old asphalt one that was there before.  Place looks great. The work crews showed up everyday and did what they were supposed to do.

The price was a little more than the quote but that’s because there was some structural issues that came up during construction that needed to be dealt with. They didn’t know about that prior to starting work so it’s cool. Glad they caught it and didn’t just slop the job together all wrong. Do it once, do it right. And they did! I’ll use them again next time I need any construction work done.” – Tim D. Poway, CA

Best Service

“I had a wonderful,positive and very profitable experience with this company. This company specializes in total remodeling as well as custom work. As a real estate investor I find there work impressive. They really strive to earn your business and trust. FIVE stars to them. Highly recommended.” – Leonard K. San Diego CA

Great Experience with Office Remodel

“HK Construction and Remodel did a super great job remodeling the office at my motorcycle repair shop Vista Motorcycle. I tried to be cheap about it but they wouldn’t let me. I wanted a face lift, they said to gut it and start over. I’m glad I followed their advice. Yeah I spent a few hundred more but it really turned out great. Looks modern, updated, open and airy, a very productive work space now.

The owner Marc Gieselmann knew what I wanted and stuck to his guns about it. I totally respect that. It wasn’t about the extra money, a rather paltry sum in the grand scope of things; it was all about me being happy with the final outcome. And I am more than happy with it. If I went the cheap route I’d probably have to pay more to fix it right. Marc saved me from myself! Overall I had a great experience with HK Construction & Remodel. I recommended them to some of my friends. They used HK Construction and it seemed to be positive for them too.”Daniel S. Vista, CA

Loft Addition Increased Home Value

“Lofts are great assets in any home because they offer more functional usability in nearly any home. My husband and I recently bought a Spanish style home in San Diego, California.And we love the open, spacious interior with the vaulted ceilings but we noticed as soon as we got all of our furniture moved in that there was so much wasted space. The house was purchased with the intention of renovating it and raising the market value but we didn’t even know that constructing a loft was an option.

We had a great contractor working for us to give us pointers throughout the process even though my husband is a self-proclaimed handyman. He actually recommended the loft concept to us in passing and we immediately grabbed onto it. Because of its location towards the back of our house we could use it for anything: a spare bedroom, a study, an office, a game room, etc. We decided that it would be a great play space for the boys. They can go up there and play with friends without us worrying about too much about them.

The project did set us back a little bit but only because we hadn’t planned on it in our original budgeting. However, with the addition of a full game room our home has dramatically increased in value. The HK Construction crew was awesome and everything was done to code, as we expected. Not only do we have an amazing place for the kids to call their own but we also made a wise investment, personalized our home, raised our market value, took advantage of wasted space, and made great friends at HK Construction. If we ever sell I’m building a loft in our next house too!” – Carrie Buchart, San Diego CA

Would Definitely Use HK Construction Again

“Thanks for a great job on our loft expansion. We are truly happy with the way the room turned out – a great addition to our home. The remodel went as planned. The job started and finished exactly as you estimated. When we had a small minor detail that needed attention, you and Chad helped me, even thought it was a weekend, and you both were out of town. I really appreciated you so much for that. We had no other surprises along the way.

The jobsite was left clean on a daily basis. The extra space that was created adds much to the house. Your people were all great and professional. Chad, the production manager, kept us full informed of the day to day scheduling and was always patient and kind. He was accessible, and if not, would return calls soon thereafter. Justin was experienced and went out of his way for us whenever we requested something from him. We never worried about anything. When we would leave for work, we felt we were in really good hands. We would definitely use HK Construction again in the future for any construction needs.” – Rick and Kim McCelland

Did a Wonderful Job on Our House

“We wanted to thank you for doing such a wonderful job on our house. Because we love the addition and are enjoying all the extra space! It has been a pleasure working with all of you from the demolition stage to the final touches. We will be certain to pass your name on to anyone who is thinking of remodeling their house. We truly appreciate all that you’ve done for us!” – Kurt and Lynn Hibbrandt

Driveway Project- Looks Good

“These guys really know what they’re doing. I’ve done light construction jobs in the past, (younger years) – too old now to do it my self. So on a referral from a neighbor I called HK Construction to widen my driveway. They dug it out, widened, framed and poured the concrete like the pros they are. Looks good just like it should. Will use them again next time I need a big project done.” – Bart Oberheim. Poway, CA

Commitment to Excellence and Integrity

“We hope you can use these goodies in the basket to celebrate the completion of yet another fine construction project! Thank you is not enough to express our gratitude for making our house a home and making it more beautiful than we thought possible. You should all be proud of the fine work that you do. All of our friends have paid you the highest compliments as they have visited us this season. Your commitment to excellence and integrity is reflected in the fine workmanship in our remodel. We would especially like to take time to thank those who lived with us on a day to day basis: Dustin and Dominic (you guys rock!), George (you were awesome!), Jason and Jesus (great guys and fantastic efforts!), Kerri (thanks for fielding my crazy calls!) and Chad (master planner) we will miss you knocking at our door at 7am.” – Jeanette and Family

Professionalism and Expertise in Their Work

“Happy Thanksgiving to you and all your family and staff. I take this opportunity to make my testimonial to your professionalism and expertise in your work. Les and I have been enjoying our new kitchen since the end of May, 2006. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t say to myself or out loud to Les how much I love my kitchen. It is beautiful, but more importantly it is functional.

Jim Evanko is the best cabinet maker of any, I am sure. Not only is he brilliant at utilizing every inch of space but additionally he is the nicest person you could ever meet. That is the best thing that you do in your work as General Contractor is to put together the best sub-contractors possible. Not just in their skills but in their integrity and kindness. That is not to say that we did not have our challenges in completing this project but with all of us working together as a team we got the job done and pretty much on time. Thank you so much.” – Yvonne & Les Sherman

Personal Level of Service

“The remodel contractors at HK Construction are awesome. There was a problem so I called Marc at HK Construction. After we talked he showed up at my front door less than an hour later. We talked over the problem then he sat down at my table with a notepad and his phone. He made a bunch of calls right there on the spot and got another contractor to come over the following morning. I know my job was kind of small but it was important to me. And it was important to Marc too. So I highly recommend their personal level of service to any one.” – Karen B. Scripps Ranch, CA

Owner Involvement

“Marc Gieselmann takes special interest in all his company’s projects. He oversees each project to make sure the work is done correctly, on time and to city code. I was very confident in his background, experience and abilities. Before starting the job he gave me an idea of the work involved, told me what to expect and when. Then his company completed the job on time and within budget. I highly recommend his services to others.” – Mike Miller. Encinitas, CA
