A1 Retrofit remodeled our condo, turning a poor real estate investment into our home. They worked on every surface but the floor and protected it well. Brad Remsing and his onsite manager were considerate of our concerns and the welfare of their employees. They played well with the condo association. The new kitchen is superb!

I met Brad through my property manager. He has worked on several restoration projects at my rental homes in Vancouver, WA, from 2006 to the present. I highly recommend he and his crew. They do excellent work. I can recognize a quality contractor when I meet one. Brad fits that bill perfectly.

Brad just gave me an hourly rate, another contractor gave me an estimate. Brad ended up completing all the items on my list for half the price as the other contractor.

A1 Retrofit came in under budget, prior to promised date, and best of all, I'm delighted with the work performed. Can't promise the same outcome for you, but I'll doubtless use their services again.

A1 did a fantastic job on my small kitchen remodel. In my initial consult, Brad listened to what I wanted to accomplish and was able to suggest some design improvements as well. The team was professional and completed the job on schedule and at budget. Overall a great value. I highly recommend.

Great job, difficult job. 3 story floating home on the Columbia River. A1 took every precaution needed to keep product out of the river.

I appreciated the timely service and accurate estimate. I got a detailed explanation of how the work would be done and was assured it would cause no additional damage to the house. The work was done quickly and to a high standard.

The job was very well done and very professional, too. The painters knowledge was outstanding, and he was extremely courteous and friendly. Thanks a lot, I would use your service again!

We hired A1 Retrofit to contract a very large commercial job involving stripping and repainting of a large, commercial truck shop facility in Portland. The quote process was completed in a very timely and competitive manor. The job itself was lengthy and complex but was completed on time and within the quotation. Brad is a very personable and honest contractor and I would certainly hire him again."

Brad is easy to work with and he made good suggestions that we implemented. I would definitely hire him again.

A 1 Retrofit did an amazing job on my vinyl siding. They showed up on time and finished the project earlier than projected and it was much cheaper than I was anticipating. I would definitely use them again in the future.

I would highly recommend Brad to any friend or colleague. He is very prompt and does a great job of listening to each concern the customer might have and makes it a point to deliver all requests. He reports in every morning to make sure his employees are present and ready to do the work required. I was very impressed with the employees he hired and felt they worked above and beyond work hours with careful consideration given to garden areas or delicate painting.  Brad was there every day and went above and beyond what was asked to make an impression with all the "extra" touches. Thanks, Brad!

Quality of work was excellent (entire inside of house was stripped of wallpaper and painted). Brad made sure that all the little things were attended to and even volunteered to come back after we had completely moved in to do any touch up work that might be required.

We had horrible wall texture that they smoothed and repainted. It looks really nice, and we are so happy with the results. Brad was super nice and his team was professional. Highly recommended!
Molly M. Portland, OR
Called quickly, was very professional, started the job soon, adapted to a change order, and most important did a very, very good job on my changes. This was the best experience 'I've had with a contractor - his work was clearly superior to those of the original home builder.

I am a local Realtor that needed some inspection items repaired to complete a home sale. I found Brad and was quite amazed with his response and professionalism. Not only was he the first one to respond to my request but he was on time and completed the required items in a timely fashion. I will use his services again and would HIGHLY recommend Brad to any of my clients and friends.

We initially called Brad for some basic household repairs and interior paint while getting ready to sell our home. Luckily, we pointed out a small crack in the drywall, and upon closer inspection it was found to be squishy (yikes!) leading us to pull back the baseboard and discover mold running the length of the wall. The roof gutter had been built into the exterior siding and had been leaking into the wall for years. If Brad's team had not discovered this and made it an immediate priority to repair, it could have impacted the sale of the house and possibly led to future lawsuits against us from the eventual buyer. Thanks to A1 acting quickly, our gutter/siding/interior wall problem got all fixed up, the new drywall, paint and carpet looks great and the house sold within days of the work being completed. What could have delayed the sale for months only took a couple of weeks to remedy. Thank you Brad and team! We recommend A1, and we will be calling them to help us fix up our new house too.
