HOW GC gave me what I thought was an aggressive budget to build an 11 unit, 5 story building for me in Northern Liberties. The building was done on time and on budget. We could not be more pleased with the quality of the work. I have recommended HOW GC to other developers in the city. I just hope they don’t get too busy to build my next project.
HOW General Contracting is an excellent company providing general contractor services for home renovations. Their team assisted me with a complete rehab in Manayunk — a 203(k) project in which everything including the kitchen sink was replaced. Walls and stairs were relocated, plumbing and electrical replaced, new flooring was installed... Despite the scope of the project, HOW GC managed to organize the project, acquire all necessary permits, and complete the renovations in two months- on a three month timeline! I am very satisfied with the quality of service I received from HOW GC and would recommend them to anyone considering a similar rehab project.
I want to extend my thanks to you and the HOW GC team for all of your efforts with regards to my investment property at Temple University. I have been extremely pleased with your knowledge of the real estate marketplace, the quality of the building you have built, and the fact that you have answered all of my questions and guided me along in this process. You and your team have been efficient, on time and on budget. I have other investment properties, but this has been by far the best and practically “hands off” process I have experienced. I look forward to doing this again and again.
HOW GC is currently building a duplex for me in North Philadelphia. As I near the completion of this project, I look forward to hiring HOW GC for another future project and would recommend them to anyone. The two words that stand out the most when describing HOW are reliable and trustworthy. When looking for a contractor, these two qualities are the most important.
