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.
We will never be able to say enough good things about Pryor…Our original contractor … basically turned our house into an unlivable mess. Thankfully, on one Saturday morning Pete Pryor stopped by our place. He listened to our story and apologized for the bad contractors that are out there … We immediately started out with a team approach. We had a project leader who expertly coordinated all the trades, always answered his cell phone or promptly returned calls… Thank goodness for the professionalism and thorough work ethic of the team… They even had it professional cleaned for us. Crazy, but I was actually sad to see them go. All the guys are all so nice and honestly I do miss them.

… 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…

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.

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.

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.

We've experienced the full range of contractors and craftsmen since we began making improvements to our home many years ago -- the good, the bad and the despicably ugly. We place Pete Pryor and Pryor Construction at the very top of our list -- we consider him to be a valued resource, a quality home improvement partner and a man of his word.

We had wanted to redo our basement for some time, but were hesitant because it required breaking up the concrete floor and digging down in order to improve ceiling height. I will never forget the day I came home and saw a mini back hoe in my basement and then, a few days later, the hot water heater and furnace suspended from the ceiling! Pryor… kept everything working so we did not have to move out. Each aspect of the renovation was well planned and executed …The project was completed on time and within the budget range.

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.
