I want to highlight the Lavan team for their attention, professionalism and dedication. It is a serious, responsible and organized company that, from the planning of the project, shows total interest in every detail. 



They made our dream house a reality. As in any large project, there were things that had to be corrected and I will say Lavan Construction never debated or dragged its feet on any of them. We are very pleased with the results of our remodel and would not hesitate to hire them again



Their years of construction experience were clearly evident as they examined, measured, and asked about what I wanted from the project. They came back to me with a detailed plan outlining the process, individual phases (Design, Structural Support and Remodel) and associated deliverables and costs.
