Michael Lenton did an awesome job converting our garage: drywalling, insulating, electrical, painting, installing HVAC, etc. He's good, and I'd recommended him to anyone.

As friends of Michael Lenton's as well as long-term customers - we asked for the opportunity to offer our experience of working with him.

We are the owners of a 90-year old house, and we thought long and hard about renovating our home. We also interviewed contractors, studied other renovations and talked to a number of people who had gone through the potentially onerous process of construction. Ultimately, recognizing that there is risk in working with friends, we decided to use Lenton Construction because Michael "gets" older homes. Not willing to attach a new structure to an older one - such that you can almost see the zipper - Michael ensures that the work he does evokes a feeling of restoration as much as renovation.

Over the course of seven years, we have hired Michael again and again - to add a new porch that visitors swear must have always been there, to renovate the kitchen, build a pantry that is frankly enviable (wine racks and all) and more. In today's market, homeowners are frequently called with offers for free construction esimates. My response to these calls? We have a contractor, and he's he best.

Michael Lenton's name was given to us through the Sierra Madre Historical Society as someone attentive to detail and able to work knowledgeably with older homes. He has done some major projects for us--rewiring our electrical, demolishing an old staircase and constructing a new one, that sort of thing--and some smaller stuff too. In each case, we've appreciated the following:

He's always there when he says he'll be there.

He's given us helpful (and accurate!) estimates, with a couple of ways of doing the jobs--including less pricy options that still look great but have saved us some substantial dough.

The work itself is both artistically appealing and rock-solid. We've worked with a number of contractors over the years, and as owners of an historical bungalow it's important for us to have someone we can trust and who we feel we can work with collaboratively. Mr. Lenton is terrific, and we'd recommend his work to anyone.

I note too that there is one negative review here. The experience described here is utterly unlike ours, and while I don't say this is a fabrication, I'd treat this with a grain of salt. We have multiple positive experiences with Mr. Lenton that contradict this account.

I had this contractor re-do pretty much my entire home. He did amazing work and was always very professional. He always showed up on time and did things in a timely manor. I highly recommend him for any type of home repair/remodel, anything!

We had a horrible experience with this contractor. He presents himself well, but ended up being very unprofessional. He would say he was coming and then not show up or even call. He never did actually finish the job, and we have had to redo many of the things he worked on. I got the impression that he tries to juggle too many jobs, so if yours does not go exactly as planned (and what does) or you have any kind of snag or need a change, he has no more time for you and just stops working or comminicating with you. I have heard about two other jobs he has worked on since where the experience was similar. If you have a small, fast, and easy job he might be okay, but for anything else I would look elsewhere.
