I cannot praise Michael Cary builders enough! He handled our job perfectly, was very easy to work with and offered fantastic resolutions when issues came up. Only works with the best subcontractors and is constantly watching that they stay on schedule. Always very cost conscience! I have recommended him to other friends and family members as well! My wife and I are very grateful to have worked with him and his team!

Great Builder

Mike did a fantastic job with the construction of our home. He is a very patient guy, knowing that most homeowners are building a home for the first time, and worked with us to help manage all of the various options and ideas. Because of his great work and dedication to his jobs, he was busy, but when Mike was on the job site and working with us, he really focused on our house and spent as much time as we needed to answer all of our questions and discuss all of the aspects of the job. Mike also did an excellent job managing the requirements of our village, inspections, etc. such that we, as homeowners, did not have to be involved at all in any of the headaches that go along with that process. Our house was built within a reasonable timeframe and no surprises on the cost side. We really love our house and would highly recommend Michael Carey Custom Homes.

Great to work with!!

Michael Carey Custom Homes remodeled our kitchen and living room and we love it. They came in on time and the price was fair. It took approximately three weeks from beginning to end!! I would definitely use them again if we ever do any other remodeling to our house.

Trustworthy and Reliable Builder

Mike is an honest builder with integrity. He stands by his homes and returns when there any issues. I would build my next home with him again and consider him a friend after this build.

Thanks Mike for the great Job!

Did an addition to our home with Mike. He was the easiest contractor to work with and his subs were all wonderful to work with as well. Have had him back to do other projects, and will continue to do so. His work is great, and Mike is also helpful with making suggestions. He's fair and he's honest and would highly recommend him to anyone.

We have worked with Mike Carey extensively over the last two and a half years. He managed the construction of a mother-in-law suite in our home (kitchen, bath, bedroom, garage) and has since completed two smaller renovation projects as well (two new bathrooms). Working with Mike is great: He's dependable. He has a fabulous team and is very selective about who we works with. He constantly brings great ideas to the table, providing advice on how to improve a space. All-around he's a consummate professional and a pleasure to work with. We couldn't believe how smoothly the construction projects have gone. I have recommended Mike to everyone that is considering a building or remodeling a home. He's the best.
