A satisfying home renovation
Born and raised in Honolulu, I became a licensed general contractor and started doing small renovations and repair jobs since June 1983. My only daughter, Tanyce, 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.
The Kaneshiro family wanted to share their great experience working with Wong Construction:
“Wong Construction did renovation work on two of our homes that we wanted to preserve for our adult children, and we are completely satisfied with the results.
“Initially, we were planning to sell the properties, which have been in our family for generations, because of the substantial amount of work that would be required to make them livable.
“Also, our previous contractor had retired, and other contractors that we contacted did not seem interested in taking on the jobs. We thought we were out of options until we contacted Wong Construction and met with company owner Les Wong and supervisor Carlos at the first home.
“When they did a walk-through and assessment of the home, they said they could do the fixes and renovations, no problem. Les kept us constantly updated on the work progress and what we needed to follow up on.
“After they completed renovations on the first home, we were so impressed with the results that we asked them to do the second home.
“We also wanted to modernize the homes with concepts such as an open kitchen with an island that flowed into the living room and recessed lighting. Les and Carlos took the time to listen to all of our renovation ideas and incorporated them into the renovations.
“They responded quickly whenever we called or texted them and followed up with any concerns or suggestions we had. They also worked diligently to stay within our budget. They even allowed us to select kitchen, bathroom and lighting fixtures that we had in mind. Wong Construction works with quality subcontractors, so kitchen and bathroom cabinets and counters turned out beautifully.
“Our kids are so excited to move into their new homes, and we are thrilled that we were able to keep the homes in the family. We will definitely call Wong Construction for any of our future renovations.”
As you can see, after 40 years in the construction industry, Wong Construction still strives to do the best job possible, and always tries to satisfy every client. Thank you very much and remember, “Do it the Wong way!”
