What people say?

Hiring a contractor to help me complete projects around my home is generally a time consuming & frustrating task. Removing my inground swimming pool was no different. I was envisioning (and actually expecting), property damage, disruption, and contractors in my yard for weeks. I finally made the decision to hire Straus Construction and then I prepared myself for the worst. Chris sent me a quote, I signed a contract, and Chris gave me an expected time frame for the work to be completed. The crew showed up at my home on time, they were professional, very respectful and they were surprisingly quiet. They were so quiet in fact that when they cleaned up and left for home after the project was complete, I didn't realize they had even left my property! My pool was gone and I had my yard back for the exact price that was on my quote after only two days. Straus Construction exceeded my expectations in every way. Thank you Straus for a great job!!
We are extremely happy with the quality of work and professionalism provided by the team at Lewis Straus Construction. From the initial meeting with Chris for a quote all the way down to the install of the concrete driveway. This is our 2nd concrete project done by Lewis Straus Construction and we highly highly recommend them.
If we could, we would give Lewis Straus Construction 5 stars as a review. In 2019, they did our patio, walkway and path to the front of the house. They did such a great job, we hired them this year to do our driveway and walk to our front porch, step included. They are timely, professional and tidy. Workers were friendly and answered all questions. Got the job done in good time. We would highly recommend them.
