    Catalin is the best. He is smart, very patient, and he would not give up if there is an unsolved problem, until it's done. His calm behavior is reassuring that everything will be done, and it will be done on time. It is so not easy to find people like him in the Contracting Business today - people you can trust for 100%. He possesses an amazing sense of style and taste, and his Master Degree in Civil Engineering is the icing on the cake. I will hire/work with Catalin any time.

    I had the pleasure of working with George and his crew to do a kitchen remodel. I interviewed several contractors and I chose George because I felt that he really understood what I wanted. I wanted a modern style kitchen to match the home and George was able to make it happen. This was my first experience with any sort of remodeling and George helped me through the process. The hardest part for me was picking out the material and style for my kitchen. But whatever you choose to do, George will be able to make it work for you. Just tell him what you want and he'll be able to figure it out. I also have unusual work hours and his team was able to accommodate my schedule. Overall I'm very please with the remodel. The kitchen turned out exactly as I expected. His prices are great and he's just an overall awesome person to work with. George easy to reach and his team is as professional as it gets. I am really fortunate to have found him and I plan on using him again the future.

    Dear Mr.George Catalin,

    This letter represents my recommendation of your excellent work. I am extremely impressed with your expertise and the implementation of phase one of my total kitchen remodel project. You took over a project from which I vacated the contract with another licensed contracting company (name available upon request) due to inferior work and questionable work ethic. You identified serious flaws with both electrical and plumbing installation, which you were able to revise to superior standards. Additionally, you placed base and wall cabinets with excellent precision, and the results are flawless. To do this, you had to float concrete in areas of a tile floor that was placed on a concrete slab subfloor in an irregular pattern. It is this attention to detail that places you at a level of achievement that I have not experienced in my 26 years of being a homeowner of multiple properties. I am looking forward to the next two phases, including the installation of quartz countertops (which you will fabricate by hand on site!) and the laying of high grade vinyl plank flooring. Given the expertise exhibited so far, I have no doubt that I will continue to be an ectatic customer Sincerely,
    Lorraine L.C- Alameda

    I highly recommend George Catalin. Last spring, I was interviewing contractors to remodel our master bathroom. We had discovered there was an active leak under the tub, which caused major damage. We had an idea of what we wanted done, but it was going to be expensive. George’s bid was the best I received, and he gave us better ideas about how to lay out the bathroom. George is personable and exceptionally professional, letting us know step by step what he was doing. We had to replace the walls, and George kept the cost to a minimum. His crew was quiet and respectful of our privacy, often working around our time constraints. The bathroom is beautiful, everything we wanted and more. He did an incredible job on the tile work, which was extensive and time consuming. I would be happy to share some pictures if requested. If we ever need another job done, I wouldn’t hesitate, I would call George.

    highly recommend Catalin and Tinka Construction Remodeling.  Catalin has many notable qualities including being helpful, a good listener, responsible, reliable, and trustworthy.  He employs highly talented tradesmen who are respectful of you and your home.  He took over a project and transformed an old outdated kitchen into a beautiful modern kitchen for us in a timely manner!  We couldn't be happier with the end product for the reasonable price he charged!

    I highly recommend Tinka Construction. I saw how they transformed a rundown garage into a lovely one-bedroom apartment with all that it needs. And I think the price was fair, very much worth the quality work done. When I look at the new apartment, I find it hard to believe what was there before!!
  • Purchased a new home and wanted to have my kitchen remodeled. I was referred to this great company by a friend and I am definitely happy I used them. They did a wonderful job and i am really happy with quality of work and the professional staff. Thank you guys!!!
