AG Design and Build has completed two projects in our home in the last three years, and both times they've knocked it out of the park. Andrey is both honest and extremely talented. His attention to detail for all aspects of the jobs was unparalleled. He laid tile in our bathroom and the end result was beautiful. He completed flooring, trim work, and painting when we needed it. He recently leveled our concrete slab that was 43 years old and did an excellent job. The quality of the all the work from AG Design and Build is top notch.
