"Very responsive... We ended deciding on Pryor due to some unique design elements (curved walls, pocket doors,
etc). They started on time and stayed on schedule… Excellent work all around... I would have no trouble
recommending Pryor to anyone."

Pryor is not the cheapest contractor but they have really lived up to the role of General Contractor, supplying expertise to manage the project and workers (their own and subcontractors), enabling us to worry about what we wanted, decorative and material choices and not have to ride herd on workers.

They have an impressive collection of talented workman who can always be counted on to do a really professional job, and can be counted on to think out of the box if they need to in order to get something done.

Our 100+ year-old home…… almost completely gutted, and three stories of new living space were added onto the back. A few unforeseen "old house issues" were tackled swiftly. In the end, we returned to a house that was skillfully crafted, where elements of the old (hardwood floors, oak trim,) blended seamlessly with the new (practically everything else). From beginning to end, they presented a professional operation and eliminated the anxiety in each stage of our first major renovation project. (They) were always available, ready to help, and usually two steps ahead of me. While I undertook the task of picking design elements, they guided me at each turn and lent their advice. Their subcontractors and craftsmen are skilled individuals, and we are beyond pleased with the level of attention they gave to our home.

… Despite the number of different trades involved, including sub-contractors, once work started, it moved along continuously with workers scheduled and actually arrived as planned and on time. Quality of work is excellent. When needed, workers stayed late to make sure things stayed on schedule…

Communication is always so important with home renovation and repair and we continually appreciate the responsiveness and attentiveness that Pryor and his team has shown throughout our projects when a question arises and his willingness to problem solve to find solutions that work.

We hired Pryor to renovate two bathrooms, one kitchen and duplex the top unit of our 110-year-old two flat into the attic. As soon as demolition started in the basement, we discovered 11 broken joists - there was no way we could build on top of that. Thank goodness we were working with Pryor, because while we hoped to save some area from being redone, we ended needing a complete gut rehab. They were clear and transparent with the information and costs involved with every decision we needed to make. And sensing we were overwhelmed (which we were), they guided us on everything from cabinets to countertops, from tile to trim, from plumbing fixtures to light fixtures -- and maintained the historical charm of our "new" home. We were very fortunate to be working with Pryor and we would highly recommend them to anyone, especially for challenging work on an older home.

The contractors and subcontractors at Pryor Construction are consummate professionals. We had a terrible experience with the first contractor we hired for our home remodeling project. When it was time to start over, Pryor took on the project. They developed a new floor plan, corrected all of the mistakes made by the previous contractor and essentially saved the project. All of their subcontractors were excellent and the project was exceedingly well-managed. Highly recommended.
