Local biz designs dream homes
BY LES WONG
Born and raised in Honolulu, I became a licensed general contractor and started doing small renovations and repair jobs in June 1983.
My only daughter, Tanyce, also was born around the same time, so needless to say my days and nights were very busy, but also enjoyable.
Over the next several years, Wong Construction grew to where it could handle larger additions and even new homes.
Today, I employ a crew of four skilled craftsmen, including myself, and although I still consider us to be a small business, we are able to handle larger jobs. We have completed projects around the island of Oahu, and we can do everything from termite repairs to million-dollar homes.
We work with outstanding subcontractors, draw plans and can design the home of your dreams. We also have great contacts that can provide financing, if the need arises.
Here are some comments from satisfied clients and homeowners George and Berly Rol:
“Ten years ago we had the back of our house completely remodeled, and now we decided it’s time to remodel the front portion of the house. We were not satisfied with the previous contractor so we decided to look for other contractors. We interviewed three different contractors. The third and last contractor that I called was Les Wong of Wong Construction. Les showed more interest and excitement than the other two contractors. He came with his own architect. We all sat down and we told them what we wanted. We wanted an open floor plan and a beautiful kitchen because my wife loves to cook and I wanted a big carport big enough to fit four cars. Les and his foreman even took us on one of their job sites.
“Whenever we had any questions or comments, contacting Les was no problem. He’s always available. They make calls right away when we want to change something. They make sure our needs are met and that the project is completed in a timely manner.
“We are glad that we found Les. We never had a stressful event with Les and his hardworking crew. The crew was very professional and sharp on every detail. My wife and I are happy with the overall outcome of the project that Les Wong and his workers provided. We continuously received positive comments from friends and family.
“He’s the only contractor I’ll call in the future!
“Mahalo to Les and the boys and remember to ‘Do it the Wong way!’”
After more than 30 years in the industry, Wong Construction still strives to do the best job possible.
