We are delighted with the bathroom update and upgrade SemperFi did for us. Jay and Seth were patient with our selection process and their crews showed up as scheduled and did a very professional job. We were very appreciative of how well Seth resolved the very few conflicts with vendors. WELL DONE, SEMPER FI!!

I am a local fellow remodeling contractor who has been in a business growth club with Semper Fi for several years. I can personally attest to the level of professional and excellence their team provides. These guys genuinely care about their customers and the homes they remodel. I consistently recommend their company for jobs and will continue to do so.

Semper Fi Custom Remodeling has been a wonderful choice for our remodeling project. Everyone who was involved in our project has been very professional and knowledgeable and they were very responsive to our questions and concerns. The project included gutting the entire master bathroom (walls included) and the kitchen. We were pleasantly surprised by containment of the construction debris. The workers were removing everything out of the house and sweeping at the end of each day. All items that could be reused they took to Habitat for Humanity. Brandon, our project manager, had everyone and every project under control. Should we decide to do another project you can bet we will be asking for Semper Fi help again.

After a terrible wind-shear event shot trees like missiles through my roof, the Semper Fi folks responded and restored my home -- a broken roof truss, a shattered skylight, damaged wall paper (from water) and water stains on ceilings, a destroyed gutter, and a whole-roof replacement (necessitating the removal and later re-installation of my solar panels during this portion). Members of the Semper Fi team were unfailingly competent, courteous, and gracious.

Chris & Jay and their staff are excellent. It's been almost 2 years since they did a major addition to our house including screen porch, laundry room, new bathroom with full basement below finished as shop. They take pride in their work, excellent communications, complete job on the time frame expected, easy to deal with and very professional. People still comment on the beautiful bathroom and amazing porch. I highly recommend them. In fact, just contacted them about remodeling the upstairs bathroom.

We used Semper Fi to remodel 3 bathrooms in a 65 year old home. Mike was our project manager. We thought the team did an exceptional job, were professional, communicative, and responsive. Not only did they complete the job, they also came up with solutions for problems as they arose. For example, they identified a blocked underground drain which was causing a humid basement and rotting drywall. They were able to efficiently address and repair this, preventing problems down the road. It has been reassuring to see that they are able to handle unforeseen problems as well as straight forward projects.

I can’t say enough good things about the Semper Fi team. The first job they ever did for my family was back when the company was just its co-founders, Jay and Chris. Together, with a few apprentices, they entirely redesigned and remodeled our kitchen. We were so pleased with the quality of their work that we extended the job to include reflooring and remodeling the entire first floor, which included our master bed/bath. A year later, we called on them again to remodel our entire ground floor and create an in-law apartment. I later recommended them to my dad, and he hired them to design and construct a summer bungalow (from the ground up). Time and time again, my family keeps coming back to Semper Fi for fundamental reasons: excellent and transparent communication, accurate budget and timeline estimates, and high quality output. In addition, the whole team is well-mannered, respectful, and good-hearted people. We’ve always felt a sense of being in good hands, which is invaluable in this line of work. They are indeed true to their name. I highly recommend Semper Fi for any project big or small.

Jay (owner) came out and built us a beautiful fence with gate. This gate not only looks beautiful but has taken a lot of abuse over the years and is still in great shape. Jay is responsive, professional and great to work with. I recommended him to my friends for a custom tiling job and he also did a great job with that. I highly recommend.

Our experience has been a very positive one. We have hired many different construction companies before in the past, but it was the Semper Fi team far exceeded any of our expectations. They were accommodating and sensitive to our needs. It was a pleasure to work with professionals that treated the project and job site as if it were their own property. Overall, they provided an excellent 6 star service! The gorgeous renovation project that they finished was on time and within budget. Highly recommend these guys!

Loved working with Semper Fi. Chris, Jay and the whole team are super professional and responsive. They remodeled my entire basement and did such a great job that I asked them to do a second job totally replacing my deck. They also did a great job of working around my schedule when needed and keeping the work area clear of debris and safe for the dog. I would keep using them but I've run out of projects!

Where do I start with how pleased we were to work with Semper Fi!?!? We are new to Black Mountain and bought a mid-century "fixer-upper"...we interviewed and got estimates from 4 contractors and even though their estimate was in the middle pricewise, we knew that SF was the right company. Their professionalism, communication and quality standards were obvious! Chris, Jay, the entire Semper Fi team, and all of their subcontractors were easy to work with and did beautiful work! COVID arrived mid-remodel and with a few modifications, we were able to continue the work and finish nearly on time and within budget. We added a few "small projects" and they rearranged the project to accommodate us. We had a complete new kitchen and master bath built, as well as remodel to a few closets, a guest bedroom, new ceilings and hardwoods floors, almost every room in the house painted, a built-in "mud-room" style bench and shelves in entrance. They were always available to answer our questions and when a few minor things didn't go as planned, they were quick to remedy them. I would highly recommend Semper Fi--they are honest, hard-working and so easy to work with. Their quality of work and communication were far and above what I have experienced with previous contractors...and we are so grateful for them!

I would highly recommend Jay and Chris (Semper Fi) for any of your building or renovation needs. They recently renovated our family home in Montreat that was originally constructed in 1916. Nothing major had been done to the house since 1963. Once in, they found some major problems with the stabilization of the structure which they promptly corrected, uncovered our original floor boards and restored them beautifully, as well as replacing asbestos tiles in a couple of rooms. They doubled the size of our front porch which now gives us wonderful views of the valley below.They have a great group of folks working for them and kept us up on everything that was happening along the way, through texts, emails, and photographs. This was important since the closest family member lives 3 hours away. Also, being that there were different families involved in the renovation, there were various desires in what each wanted to see in the renovation. Semper Fi worked very patiently with us all in getting the final product and look the way we wanted it. Working through the three seasonal family visitation was difficult and yet they were able to continue moving forward even with our numerous scheduling changes.Semper Fi is excellent in their budgeting for work. What you want is what you get, and what you pay for; all arranged ahead of time. You will not be negatively surprised by costs after the fact. They are above board and will let you know what is needed, what is not, and what your options are. They are a very professional group! We will most definitely be hiring them again for our next stage.We actually talked with two contractors prior to Semper Fi and did not come away with a very good feeling with them. Semper Fi was a completely different vibe. The best company anywhere in the area for your building or renovating needs.

Chris and Jay are great to work with! They helped us decide what design would work best for us and for the flow of our house. Their attention to detail with our quote was phenomenal and I love the weekly updates they do so you always know were you are on the project! There is no question in my mind that they truly care about building a lasting relationship with their customers.

Semper Fi took care of finishing our lower level space, including framing, drywall, leveling floors and installing new flooring, installing mini kitchen/bar, new bathroom with all plumbing, new A/C. Their craftsmen were excellent - particularly carpenters Brent and JP. Our Project Manager Mike Owens was patient and helpful, dealing with sub-contractors, taking care of minor issues and working with unusual timelines during very unusual circumstances due to the work environment caused by the 2020 pandemic. We couldn't have completed this project without them.

Great local business to Black Mountain that provides very personalized service. Great at communicating and keeps a weekly communication visit in case anything needs to be discussed. Project manager is hands on and visits almost daily while work is being done to make sure everything is going as planned. They are open to fixing anything that needs changing/fixing. Easy going and trustworthy to have around your house. They are up front and honest about how they like to do things.

Mike and the whole Semper Fi crew were courteous and professional. They converted our screened- in porch to a new finished room addition. The work was done on time and everything looks great. The neighbors appreciated their attention to keeping the work area clean. Overall a great experience.

We had an extensive remodeling project done by Semper Fi and it went extremely well; we are VERY pleased with the results. Chris and Jay and their whole team were great to work with, extremely pleasant, professional, and competent. The system they use to communicate and track progress, change orders, and financials was very helpful in letting us keep track of all the details. We've had so many compliments on the house after the renovation. In fact, we have already contracted with Semper Fi to do some additional renovations. We highly recommend them!We had the second extensive remodeling project done this past spring and Semper Fi came through again. It turned out beautifully, even better than expected.We highly recommend them for any remodeling project. Their team is just the best! We love our house now that it's remodeled. Thanks, Semper Fi!!

We had the best experience with Jay, Chris and their team!! It was what a good construction experience should be, but is often hard to find. Great communication, a friendly and very talented crew and frequent reminders that what they ultimately wanted, was for us to be happy with our new space. They clearly care about their clients and it shows in every aspect of their work. As we have other projects to do in the future, they will absolutely be our first and only call.

My bathroom remodel was a relatively small job for Semper Fi, but it was huge to me. I’m beyond pleased with the results; it’s better than I imagined! The entire team was so easy to work with and did an excellent job. The entire process was spelled out for me ahead of time and they stayed on schedule and within budget. Communication was really easy. Chris and Jay always responded quickly to any concerns.

We bought our dream home in Weaverville which had one major flaw: a crowded, claustrophobic, outdated kitchen and dining area. Appliances were inadequate, spaces were chopped up with walls and no one wanted to be in the kitchen. As we spoke with Jay, Ashley and Patrick our vision began to take shape for a radical remodel of that entire end of the house. The final result was beyond our wildest dreams. But such a fantastic result could only have taken place because of Semper Fi's remarkable people and process. Every phone call was returned within that day. Every email was answered quickly. When we could not make up our minds, we were provided wise counsel and multiple options to choose from. They deftly weighed the opinions of several family members on key issues. Over our months of collaborative efforts they became friends as well as expert professionals.But best of all was the final result. We love our new kitchen and dining area!

When our first builder failed to come through in 2017, we weren't sure where to go next. Our designer suggested Semper Fi and we couldn't have been happier with the company! They brought a willingness to achieve OUR goals in the best possible way, to stay within our budget and to help us make materials choices that would suit our lifestyle. We not only wanted beauty, but functionality and both were achieved with skill and craftsmanship. We would suggest Chris, Jay and the entire team to anyone looking to remodel.

We hired Semper Fi to replace a large window in our home. Jay was easy to contact and communicate with. His crew showed up on time and on the day we had scheduled. The job required them to be inside our home. They were great about protecting our furniture and cleaning up after the job. We will definitely be using their services again in the future.

I absolutely love this company! The two owners Jay and Chris have bent over backwards to give me what I wanted, even edited their quote a couple of times so I ended up with everything I could have wished for. This is the second time they have worked at my home. They completed an extensive renovation a couple of years ago when they repaired some damage to my flooring system and exterior walls. This year a tree fell onto my roof so they are giving me a new roof and decking. They are courteous, on time, and professional. I am already planning my next project - an addition at the end of my house. I love giving my business to these two patriotic young Marines!

We have used Semper Fi for multiple remodel projects over the past couple of years, including creatively adding a bathroom to a small home and working with a home designer to expand a mountain cabin crawlspace to additional livable space.Semper Fi sets realistic tie and cost expectations, they kept us informed every step of the way. They met every deadline and didn't increase the price because they did a great job of estimating upfront costs.I highly recommend!
