Christie’s Design / Build Remodeling
Excellent to Work With
We were looking to finish our 1500 sq ft basement and did a bit of shopping around with several outfits here in Denver. My parents had used Christie's to finish their basement a few years back and Christie's did nice work for them. Pricing between the 3 companies was very close, so we decided to go with Christie's. We were not at all disappointed with our decision. Christie's is a family business and they treat their customers as part of their family. Alyssa, the daughter, did the 3-D design and listened to everything we wanted. We wanted an open floor plan with a wet bar, bathroom, storage areas, and larger entertainment areas. The design she came up with was exactly what we were looking for. They handled all of the permits through Broomfield county and the job went very smoothly. Shaun, the project manager, is a great guy and keeps his teams in line and on time. All of the workers we interacted with were very professional and did great work. From start to finish, Christie's did an excellent job of making sure we were happy with everything that was done.
We couldn't have asked for a better experience. We've used several contractors in the past with varying results, but we'll definitely use Christie's again in the future and we tell everyone looking for any kind of remodeling/finishing to give Christie's a call.
Christies is a great family company with an honest, upfront approach, and a great communication style. I chose them because they were a local company with an affordable estimate and could give access to us as owners having lots of hands-on input to all project decisions. They were prompt in addressing any problems that came up and were not afraid to replace subcontractors who were not skilled enough.
We had a complete and radical remodel of a condo in a 140 year old house ( with all its idiosyncrasies) which involved tearing down internal walls for a more open floor plan, reversing closets, redesigning the whole kitchen, bathroom/laundry area, and home office.
We are very pleased with the outcome and plan to age gracefully in place in our new, lovely open environment.
I simply cannot say enough good about Christie's. I have had a ten year dream to remodel my kitchen. The time was finally here. After going through two different companies I found them on this list ( thank you Tom). Steve and Alyssa met with me and came up with a plan. They are beyond wonderful to work with and they made everyday an adventure for me. I have the most beautiful kitchen you can imagine. Their workers are fantastic and professional. Seriously some of the nicest people you will ever meet. You will not be sorry for choosing them. You will be getting them more business because everyone now wants my kitchen!!! Thank you Steve,Diane,Alyssa,Jerry and Steve...you are the BEST!!!!
We have used Christie's Complete Services several times over the past four years from small bathroom jobs to hole house remodel jobs requiring a lot of experience and planning. Steve has always delivered what we needed at a fair price with the exact level of quality he promised. He brings fresh alternatives along with traditional choices for the best results. We've returned several times for consultation, seemingly minor tasks as well as for major home improvements inside and outside. We trust Steve's experience and reliability and feel comfortable recommending his services to anyone else.
Extremely Honest and Trustworthy
When we first moved into our home, the basement was not inviting, to say the least. We began looking for someone to refinish it as soon as possible. We became discouraged after meeting with a few contractors, as we no one seemed willing to do what we wanted. Thankfully, a friend recommended Steve Christie to us. Steve made us feel comfortable and we knew right away that Steve would work with us and accommodate our needs. He compiled a detailed and accurate proposal for us that we accepted. Steve had some innovative ideas to maximize the space in our basement. He even completed the job within the time frame he initially gave us. We really enjoy spending time in our basement now. We recommend Steve to all of our friends. He is extremely honest and trustworthy, and we couldnâ€™t be more thrilled with our new basement. Sincerely,
Steve was a joy to work with
I am pleased to write this letter of referral for Christie Complete Services.

Steveâ€™s employees are respectful to personal property and exhibit a high level of craftsmanship. They have proven construction abilities and show particular attention to detail.
I would definitely hire Christie Complete Services for future home improvement projects and recommend them to others without hesitation.
We just wanted to give you a follow-up on the guest and master-bath remodel you did for us last year. After twelve months, we're very pleased to tell you that, we wouldn't have changed any part of the design. The plan, as you suggested and we agreed upon, has proved to be perfect for our life style. I won't do a summation of the individual items of the remake. I'd prefer to let the pictures I sent you last year, speak for themselves. I will state that, after a remodel, it should feel at least as familiar and comfortable as that which was replaced. The remodel, has felt great from day one! One of the goals of our remodel was to enhance the livability of our house for our senior years. That was accomplished with thought and planning for the future by installing the wider door to the toilet and the 3/4'' particle board behind the dry-wall, and shower lining, to facilitate easy installation of any grab rails that we may require in the future. Often, it's the least thought of items that are the most significant. Your re-alignment of the original plumbing was superb. We can now take a shower while someone either flushes the toilet or, turns on the water in a sink and not have the water pressure or temperature go berserk in the shower. Gee, that's really nice! Most of all, we've appreciated the continuity of the architecture to the original. From the fit and finish of the cabinets to the exterior trim on the new windows, it all looks like it should have been from the first day we moved into our house back in '87.
â€œI found Christies through a number of ways including word of mouth, research on the internet and the phone book. I remodeled my bathroom about a year ago and picked the wrong contractors to do it. After about 3 weeks I kicked them out of my home and started the search for some one to fix their mistakes and unfinished work. In the mean time my hot water heater started leaking so I called the city building inspectors and one came out and as we where talking he gave me a list of contractors not only for water heater but for fixing the bathroom. I chose a contractor to do the water heater and he suggested a couple more contractors and I checked them out and called Christies. Steve Christie came out and looked the bathroom over and gave me a quote and was the only contractor that picked up the leak behind the shower head wall. Christies fixed all the mistakes including ripping up the marble tile and replacing it with a more suitable tile and preparing floor as it had not been done the first time. They took the extra time to make sure we were happy and came back to make sure everything working correctly. They took the extra to step to spray stuff under our fiber tub so it would not snap and pop when we stepped in it to take a show, that involved going under the house, drilling a couple of holes and than spraying this stuff up under the tub. I would recommend Christies for any remodeling or additions to your home.â€
Very Good Impression!
My neighbor two doors down came over while I was out in the front yard and was wondering how things were going. He's been wanting to replace several windows very similar to ours but didn't really know where to start. I showed him the whole Milgard system and he was totally blown away by the solid design and the look of the woodclad fiberglass! He then asked me what I thought about the work and I explained how completely professional you and your crew have been and that you guys really work on the job like it's your own home. He was extremely impressed with how clean the job site was left for the weekend as well and the fact that there weren't tools laying around or drywall dust, etc, etc... (so you can tell Steven his meticulous attention to keeping the jobsite squared away really paid off for you!) I gave him your card and several links to milgard windows and he was a very happy camper. Who knows if anything will come of it, but you've made a very good impression on a potential customer and you don't get many chances to make first impressions. I told him we were going to have a ''finished project'' party and he was quite interested in that.
Shirley and I just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know how much we appreciate the manner and timeliness of the four projects you completed for us this past summer, so much so that, CCS is now officially our ''Contractor of Choice'' for all of our future projects. This past spring, when we started the process of dealing with some deferred maintenance issues on our twenty year old home, we decided on four projects that needed immediate attention. The west side of the house needed some grading work to mitigate water seepage into the basement and to fix a constantly flooding window well. The original roof and gutters needed replacing. The 6' cedar privacy fence needed replacing. The finished portion of the basement needed new flooring and we really wanted to update the original basement bathroom. I contracted with Steve Christie of Christies Complete Services to repair a second floor deck. Rather than just looking at the rotting wood and replacing it, Steve took the time to investigate the damage below the deck and its affect on our home. What was an unsightly deck was actually ruining our home. Steve took the time to solve the problem and came up with a great solution. His work was done very quickly, within budget and with the least amount of interruption in our lifestyle. There is neither drama nor changes in the scope of the work. On a personal note, Steve is of the highest integrity, does great work and has a high commitment to quality. He knows what he is doing and his bids are accurate (no surprises). I would trust Steve to do work for anyone. Sincerely,
