I am text block. CBK Contracts – On-Time, Under Budget, Amazing! We found BK Contracts (herein BKC) on Angie’s List after searching for a company to finish our basement. BKC offered an initial consult and basement design (ideas) for $249 which would be discounted from the project costs when we went with their company. The owner, Bret, met with us, listened to our ideas, passed on some of his own and after just a few days we had a detailed proposal. The design was exactly what we had discussed and his estimate was very reasonable considering the size and scope of our project (about 3,000 square feet). We had met with and talked with a number of other companies but when considering the experience, price and years in business (since 1993) we went with BKC. Within a few days of our proposal acceptance, his crew began working. Project Scope: – Au pair / In-Law suite – Fitness Room – Recreational Room – Theater – Full Kitchen – Storage Area Amazing attention to detail and incredibly responsive. They far exceeded all of our expectations and would immediately adjust to any additional renovation needs, additions or changes. Luis, Lorenzo and Jorge are all trustworthy, courteous and a hardworking group of men. The installation of the drywall went smoothly, without issue. They inspected each piece to make sure each was without flaws. The electrical work went smoothly as well, adjusting to our numerous (additional) requests for dimmers and pendant lighting. The painting was again, perfectly done. Bret was reachable all day via email, text or phone and his response was almost immediate. He met me at Home Depot to help select appliances and lighting for the kitchen area and assisted with the cabinet selection as well as the backsplash and finishing touches. We will definitely use this company again and would highly recommend them to friends and family without hesitation. BK Contracts is now my go-to company for any household needs or projects.

Just a brief note to thank you and your team for doing such wonderful work on my home! My family and I are very happy with the finished work on both the beautiful music room addition and the lovely porch. Your diligence, efficiency and hard work are much appreciated. All the workers were courteous, capable and responsive to any concerns I may have had. Please thank everyone who was part of a job well done!
It is with pleasure and sincerity that I write this letter of recommendation for Bret Kisley with BK Contracts. My husband and i have hired Bret on three different ocasions to do work on our house, and each time Bret has meet our expectations. Based upon his attention to detail and the relationship we have built with him, we would undoubtedly hire Bret for future work.
We recently hired bret to do an addtition on our home, and we had a specific timeframe in which the work needed to be done. I was pregnant with our first child and due at the beggining of October,and we decided to build an addition on our home that would include the baby’s nursey. By the time we decided to build the addition and got through the permitting paperwork with the county, it was the end of July. Bret took on the job and made the commitment to have the nursery ready for the baby’s arrival. Although he essentially only had two months to complete the entire addition as a whole, and we are so greatful that Bret did not shy away from the challenge of completing such a large project in a short period of time.
As a contractor Bret takes pride in his work and pays attention to detail. He works diligently to understand the homeowner’s wishes and expectations, and he will utilize the knowledge he has aquired from his years of experience as a contractor to ensure he carries out their vison. When Bret works on your home, he does not seem intrusive.We always felt comfortable with him in our home. In fact, I actually appreciated his company in our home as iapprocached my due date. His good nature and genuine concern for us as a family truly set him apart from other contractors we have used.
Throughout the projects Bret has completed for us, he has gone from ‘just a contractor’ to someone we consider a friend. If you want a contractor who is professional yet personal, then Bret Kisley is the contractor for you.

My second time using BK Contracting and I couldn’t be happier. Just bought a single family home in Leesburg as an investment property. Bret’s team remodeled the kitchen (installed all new appliances, fixed some plumbing and replaced the linoleum floor with tile). The kitchen looks absolutely amazing with the stainless steel appliances and the high quality floor. He also totally overhauled two bathrooms including the entire floor with tiles, replaced all the vanities, toilets, mirrors and lights. Basically, two whole new bathrooms. The basement had some shoddy work to be repaired. There were entire dry walls missing and all sorts of weird electrical cabling. Bret’s team fixed all of it and honestly, it looks about as different as it gets. All the work was completed in less than 3 weeks and I was able to place the home on time. Consequently, the home was leased out in less than 12 days to a new tenant and I could not be happier. Best of all, I had to text Bret at odd hours on a Sunday with a broken thermostat / heater issue, and he promptly responded with valuable advice on what the problem was and how to mitigate it. Not sure who else would have given me free advice on a Sunday. Overall, a huge fan of BK contracting. I had a flooding in my personal home earlier in 2015 and BK Contracts totally rebuilt my basement (insurance claim) and it looks so much better than before. Bret’s a real gentleman and a man of his word. He has always stayed very close or below his budget estimates and I know I will be using him for future renovations of my investment properties.
We interviewed several different contractors for this work (approximately 7-8) since we knew this was going to be a large and expensive project. We felt most comfortable with Bret who took the time to understand our needs/wants and drew up a scope of the plan and a proposed layout of what we were looking for. Upon seeing his estimate, it came in on the lower end of our other contractors and based on his good reviews, we decided to move forward. Based on getting permits, the start of the job went very quickly. We have gotten quite a bit of work done in our home and have to say that Bret’s crew were very professional, knowledgeable, and did very high quality work on what was done (I wish I had gone with Bret and his company for other past projects). A big plus was as we move forward with the project, we had several design changes done and Bret and his team were willing to accommodate the scope which was very helpful. While the project was going on, we also had a baby born and all the meanwhile, no interruptions in the work nor much of our time was needed to keep things going. As mentioned, our project was turn-key so his crew did everything including framing, drywall, plumbing, flooring, painting, all finishing touches to the end. What started as a basic job became a highly custom job but Bret and his team were up for the task. We are thrilled with the end result and glad we get to enjoy it with our friends and family for many years to come. In fact, everyone that has come by our home and sees the basement thinks it is really good work. This coming from someone that is very meticulous and particular. Whether we had a very minimal job or a high-end custom job, I would be confident to go with Bret and his team for the job. Description of work: The scope of the work included finishing our recreation room, a bar, a bedroom, a gym, a home theater, a custom wine area/closet and a workshop area. The scope of the job was turn-key and Bret and his team were contracted to do all work including the planning and design, permits, to final completion

After talking to and receiving quotes from 6 contractors we selected BK Contractors (Bret) for our remodel. The project included creating a new home office that needed to be insulated and sound proofed, a home theater, a kid’s playroom, half bath, and craft / arts center. Additionally, the hot water heater needed to be relocated with new plumbing lines run. Bret and his team were very professional and great to work with!!! Starting with the design and contracting process, Bret was easy to work with. He was more than happy to spend as much time as needed to help design the project. Like most people, we had a limited budget. Bret was able to offer options that allowed us to stay within our budget while maximizing our design. As for the contract, Bret’s scope of work and contract was thorough and left no doubt we select the right contractor. Within days of signing the contract Bret had the building permit in order and his guys were hard at work. The framing, electrical and plumbing rough-in were competed within a few weeks. All of his employees are very professional, polite, respect your home as if is it their home. At the end of each day, the work site was swept clean and the trash taken out. Throughout the entire project Bret was ALWAYS available and just a phone call away. I would absolutely recommend BK Contractors and will certainly use him again. Description of work: Complete basement remodel to include insulated sound proof office, home theater, kid’s playroom and half bath and craft studio.
