    They did a great job!

    5.0 James G. Durham, NC

    We hired Enliven for several renovation projects, including: ï · Repainting kitchen cabinets ï · Cutting a knee wall ï · Moving electrical outlets ï · Replacing toilets and vanities ï · Tiling a backsplash ï · Adjusting plumbing to accommodate a freestanding tub ï · Updating a stair handrail. I was very impressed with the quality of their work and the care they put into each project. They not only made sure things were done correctly but that they also met my high expectations. They kept us informed throughout the projects on any challenges or issues and provided clear explanations for how they would address them to ensure our satisfaction. I have readily recommended them to friends and neighbors, and I will continue to do so.

    I needed to install a tricky set of French doors from my Kitchen to my patio. I had used the big companies like Anderson before and the cost was stratospheric. Preston designed and installed a beautiful French door and window combination at half the price of the big name companies, and did it with professional attention to detail and in timely fashion. I could not give him a higher recommendation. He is also a pleasure to work with and a truly principled person. I'm hoping to more work with him in the near future.

    5.0 Tiffany A. Chapel Hill, NC

    Preston was great to work with and his work is fantastic. We wanted to replace a standard bathroom door with a barn door, and have the bathroom painted. Preston was great at giving advice on what to purchase for the space, he is a creative problem-solver, and his work is top quality. He's also a really nice guy and a great communicator. We were very pleased with his work.

    On time and on budget

    5.0 Martha J. Chapel Hill, NC

    It is so rare to get a good service professional that I had almost given up. I have had nothing but bad luck. Preston from Enliven came to see me about my project and I immediately felt his dedication to the job. He is an honorable man. Very hard to come by. If you hire him, your project will be in the best hands.. He is honest, caring, dedicated to quality and ever so competent. He totally went the extra mile. He got a quote to me right away, rearranged his schedule to accommodate me quickly and then he and his team did a spectacular job. I am just so pleased. I am so excited about finding somebody so great (thank you Preston!) that I am working up a new bigger project for him to do for me. Hire him and you will be so happy.

    5.0 Brent W. Chapel Hill, NC

    Preston and his assistant did excellent work for us on 2 projects, one of which was an exterior door. We look forward to working with Enliven on future projects and highly recommend this excellent contractor.

    5.0 Andrew C. Pittsboro, NC

    I was very please with the quality of work and the professionalism of the contractor. i would highly recommend him and use him again.

    5.0 Bernie N. Durham, NC

    Preston was prompt in coming to our home. He found a solution so quickly (air leak at the base of an exterior door) that he reduced his original phone estimate. I would gladly hire Enliven for other projects. He knows his stuff!
