Estes Construction Company d/b/a Dreamlight Inc. Contact:  Tim at 770.365.9570 (August 2008).  Courteous, competent and completely on time.  Absolutely everything was topnotch in our several remodeling projects.  The experience was first-class all the way: the estimate, the work quality, the workmen - absolutely EVERYTHING!  Work by Max Estes is the work of a fine craftsman.

2009 UPDATE:  Even better than before - I cannot imagine using any other company for work at my house.  Their collective knowledge, their precise expertise and their courtesy make them, quite simply and without a doubt, the BEST at what they do (which is just about everything).
