I’m an interior designer – and it is a struggle to find a solid contractor that is competent, reasonable, and easy to work with. Arete hits all those adjectives and takes it to the next level. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a job go so smoothly and communication works so well. (Thank you, Ivan!) The work was also exactly as presented, timely, and done thoughtfully (thank you Dan!) I am beyond happy with their work and very excited to work with them again.
