Who We Are...
John founded Straight & Level in 2004, striving to create positive experiences for clients working with a general contractor on residential projects. In a short time, he has quickly gained recognition for the quality of his projects, winning multiple Contractor of the Year awards from the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) at both a local and regional level.
To many people, a remodeling job is the stuff of nightmares, but we want to change that perception for our clients. Straight & Level is happy to work with clients during the project at whatever level of participation that they feel comfortable. Without a GC on site who can lead, listen, and educate, any project will fall short of expectations.
What Our Clients Say...
This being our first major inside home renovation, we could not have been happier with both the results and the process. We needed to replace the shower in our master bath when the tile started falling off the wall. John came out and reviewed the situation, and discussed our options with us. We decided to renovate the entire bath, with not only a new glass-enclosed shower stall, but also a new tub and tile throughout. John's knowledge and experience were invaluable. He provided expert guidance for everything from deciding the scope of the project to selecting the fixtures to the details of the design. Most important, he was usually on site to supervise his subs, often working alongside them. He was communicative, available and conscientious throughout. When unforeseen issues or snags emerged, he gave us our options and his recommendations. And he dealt with the inevitable last-minute changes with grace and aplomb. And the end result has been beyond our expectations. The quality of the workmanship is outstanding, and we know the unseen parts are equally well executed. In short, he turned what we were dreading as an ordeal into a remarkably pleasant experience. We will not hesitate to call on him again when the next project comes up.

We recently had new windows and siding replaced by Straight & Level construction. John Martin, the owner, takes the time to address all issues and concerns. He searched around for a specialty window manufacturer as our windows were old and custom made.Replacing the glass was not something the more reputable glass companies in town wanted to undertake and he had to canvas Austin to find someone to help, which he did! He follows up on all elements of installation and construction. Even after construction was completed and we had an issue arise (they always do), John followed up and made the customer happy. In our case, the screens to the sliding glass doors didn't slide smoothly. He made sure the screen doors were fixed as soon as possible. His crew is professional and pleasant as well. I highly recommend Straight & Level for any installation or construction project you have.

When we decided to close in an unused upstairs balcony to expand our game room, I met with John who came highly recommended by two of our neighbors. I knew right away that he was the one for our project. He explained every step of the process as we went through it, he was always on time, the job site was left clean each day, his sub-contractors were all great to work with, and we love the finished product. Even when we significantly expanded the scope of the project, he remained calm and ensured that it was completed with the same high quality as the initial project. I especially appreciate that John took the time to look at all aspects of our house and make suggestions for small improvements that have made a big difference. John is easy to work with, up front, honest, insists on high quality and I would definitely recommend him for any home remodel project.
