Description of Work: I would like to thank Castillo Builders for the job they did on my investment property. I purchased a 10,000 sq. foot-10 unit apartment building needing a total reconstruction and repair. They reframed all 10 2-3 bedroom units. Installed great looking ceramic tile floors and tile around all the bathtubs. Installed new metal stairs which matched perfectly with the exterior. Installed all new plumbing, and electrical wiring and fixtures. Installed stucco onto the entire exterior. Painted the inside and outside of the entire building. It is now a nice and trendy apartment complex.


Comments about the process: From the beginning Alfonso Castillo was easy to talk to and very direct and talented at describing what should be done in a way I could easily see it in my head. Once the job was started he made all of the decisions seem simple to me, and when it came to the financing schedule he walked me through each phase in a professional and easy to understand manner. I couldn't believe they were completely finished within 3 months and my building looked like it was completely brand new with flawless floors, new metal stairs, a new roof, and all new electrical wiring, plumbing and fixtures. They even suggested and installed a stucco finish around the entire exterior of the building which completely changed the entire look of my property into a very nice and trendy apartment building for my residents to live in. Even the painting and trim-work looked as if it could be in a million dollar house.

Our project was a total renovation of a single-family home in the St. Claude neighborhood. The house had not been touched since shortly after Katrina and re-framing of the interior supports was needed after the house was gutted. Aside from the original Cypress exterior weather boards, the house was completely remade--- including electrical, plumbing, HVAC, walls, insulation, the whole nine yards.

After interviewing six contractors for my project, a complete renovation of a single family home, I chose Alfonso Castillo based on reviews from this site and on the fact that he was the most professional, prompt and engaging contractor I met. After meeting with him and agreeing to a contract, work began within days on the property. The first seven weeks of a two month projected project went very smoothly and communication was without hitches. I then went out of town  for 10 days and was told that the project would be completed upon my return. When i came back in town, the project was not completed, in fact it was far from it. This however, is understandable because the project, given mold, termite and structural issues, was much larger than initially anticipated. The house is now completed and looks wonderful beyond my expectations, with Alfonso and his crew paying attention to all my wishes and even taking care with minute details within the house. Alfonso took the time to meet with me countless times throughout the project and offered advice, guidance and explanations at every turn. Overall, I am extremely happy with the outcome of the house and with Alfonso, Roy (my property manager) and his crew. Alfonso had a vision of what the house could be from the beginning and he delivered absolutely. I would, without a second thought, recommend Castillo Builders  for any construction needs. I know I will certainly work with him again in the future.

Castillo Builders completely remodeled our building to suit the needs of my new business. Demolition, sheetrock, electrical, plumbing, painting, stucco repair, etc.

Our building was built in the late 1800's so I knew there may be some challenges once we began interior wall demo. The crew from Castillo Builders handled all challenges with great poise. Our space was 2,400 sq/ft. and we did some sort of work in every bit of the space. They completed the project quicker than I expected (which never happens) so I was able to open weeks ahead of schedule.

Wade (the project estimator) did a thorough job of planning the proposal to make sure I didn't miss anything that I needed done. Proof of insurance and customer references were provided to me.  Once we agreed on the contract, work began immediately. Belle Terre (the project manager) was very professional and joy to work with. Alfonso (the business owner) stopped by often to make sure things went smoothly.

Overall, I am pleased with the work done and the timeframe in which it was completed. I was also pleasantly surprised by the total cost of my renovation. From initial permits to final inspection, the folks at Castillo Builders exceeded my expectations.  Will be using them to remodel our next store we are opening soon in Jefferson, LA.

Complete renovation, inside and out, of a duplex in New Orleans.

Alfonso went above and beyond on a difficult project. The building was constructed in the 1940's and was in complete disrepair. There were many unknowns due to the age of the property, but Alfonso was fair in adhering to the contract we agreed to.
All exterior siding was replaced, the interior front unit was completely gutted and built out new, the back studio apartment was turned into garage/off-street parking, all new HVAC, plumbing, gutters. The building was taken from a vacant eye-sore to a beautifully renovated property in 4 months. The project did end up taking slightly longer than anticipated, but was mainly due to additional work that was needed. We would also advise very clearly communicating build-out details (fixtures, etc.).
Alfonso was very responsive and easy to work with throughout the process. When something came up, good or bad, he would make sure to update us ASAP (very important quality)! The quality of work and end-result exceeded our expectations, and we stayed within budget. We would most definitely work with Alfonso again on future projects.
All in all, Castillo Builders did a tremendous job on a difficult project and would highly recommend!!

Complete renovation including every aspect of finish work. Framing, electrical, plumbing, inspections, sheetrock, painting, cabinets, tile and marble work, kitchen and countertops. Everything you'd need to have a complete home.

The house looks amazing and Mr. Castillo and his crew are top notch! If there was any questions or minor issues, it was handled in a timely fashion with the highest priority. I felt like the most important customer which is what everyone wants!  The finishes were marble and subway tile, which can be tough, but these guys did a great job and the house looks incredible!
Thanks to Alfonso, Belter and all his crew, you rock!

Renovated second floor of business (approximately 2,500 ft2).  They built walls, hung sheetrock, floated, painted, reconstructed all windows, ran plumbing and electrical, sanded and coated entire floor, and built stair railing.

This is my third project with Castillo builders.  As usual, quality work was done in a timely manner.  I feel like I've built relationships with these guys and will use them for future projects.  They are easily accessible and work well as a team.
