We hired them to remodel our kitchen and laundry room, which included new cabinetry, plumbing, electrical and flooring. Millbrook provided us with multiple design options, and was able to provide 3D renderings so we could actually "see" the space. They exhibited the utmost patience and flexibility during process of the design, even when we introduced new ideas after we started. They managed all this while being conscious of our budget. Unlike most contractors, they tried to keep us within our budget or under.
Klint, John and all their crews showed the utmost respect to each of us (including the family dog) while at our house, and were very polite and professional. They also kept everything clean and tidy during the remodel, which isn't easy. They provided us a very accurate timeline of our remodeling. Each day we received an update, along with the objectives for the day. Much to our amazement and excitement, they finished the job a week early!
We would highly recommend them, and already have!
GORGEOUS bathroom remodel
September 28, 2011
I live in Los Angeles and I have a classic Montrose duplex in Houston that needed some major renovations. A friend of mine recommended Millbrook Construction and I couldn't be happier that I found them.
We had one meeting and I described all the work I wanted done in our bathroom remodel - when I flew back into town a couple of weeks later - all the work was done to my EXACT specifications. The bathroom is GORGEOUS and I was able in rent out the unit in record time with the upgrades Millbrook did for me. I already plan on hiring them for a kitchen remodel in our other unit and I have no doubt they will yet again make my vision become a reality.

I hired Klint at Millbrook Construction to fix my 1920's garage that was dilapidated and non-usable. After comparing options to rebuild the garage or renovate the existing structure, we decided to renovate the existing garage including re-siding the structure, re-enforcing the ceiling beams, installing a new roof, door and paint . It was a complicated project because the old structure did not have standard dimensions. Klint came out multiple times to go over the plan and make changes as necessary. He and his workers competed the job in the time promised and communicated well throughout the project. The garage came out amazing and really adds to my whole property. I have recommended Klint and his company to my family and friends and plan to use him in the future.

What is a General Contractor?
A general contractor
is a group or individual that contracts with another organization or individual (the owner) for the construction, renovation or demolition of a building, house, or other structure. A general contractor
is defined as such if it is the signatory as the builder of the prime construction contract for the project.
A general contractor
is responsible for the means and methods to be used in the construction execution of the project in accordance with the contract documents. Said contract documents usually include the contract agreement including budget, the general and special conditions and the plans and specification of the project that are prepared by a design professional such as an architect.
A general contractor
usually is responsible for the supplying of all material, labor, equipment, and services necessary for the construction of the project. To do this it is common for the general contractor to subcontract part of the work to other persons and companies that specialize in these types of work. These are called subcontractors. General contractors
often run their own business. They hire subcontractors to complete specialized construction work and may manage a team of plumbers, electricians, builders, carpenters and other specialists.General contractors
are the "big picture" thinkers. They work with you through the entire project, from the idea phase to the finished product. By contrast, subcontractors come and go. They specialize in certain areas of the construction process and enter project to do a particular task and leave when that task is finished. General contractors
don't usually complete much construction work themselves, but they should remain familiar with construction
techniques so they can manage workers effectively and ensure that their subcontractors complete high-quality work.
Being that their jobs vary in complexity they get paid by the job. This means that the harder and more time consuming a job is the more it will cost. Also some materials cost more than others therefore tiling a bathroom will cost more than putting siding on a house.
Responsibilities of the general contractor
may include applying for building permits, securing the property, providing temporary utilities on site, managing personnel on site, providing site surveying and engineering, disposing or recycling of construction waste, monitoring schedules and cash flows, and maintaining accurate records
Before starting a job the general contractor
must first come in and look the house to see what it is that they are doing. After observing the area in which the job will be done they are able to come up with a price. This price is called an estimate. The estimation is essentially an educated guess. The general contractor takes what the cost of materials should be and then adds the cost of labor for the job and comes up with the estimate.
