From the very first meetings I felt comfortable with Matt. He gave a detailed pricing analysis and met with us to explain it. His prices were in line with the other 2 I received.
Working with him and his subs was a pleasure. He clearly communicated the schedule, the expectations of how his subs would behave and deliver. We finished an approximately $120k addition of master bath and closet on time and on budget.
I have been a realtor for 27 years and I will be happy to refer my clients to this company.
Matt did a wonderful job on our full house remodel. He was up front about budget and cost expectations and thus we were able to stay within our final budget. His has wonderful sub-contractors, which is essential in a construction project. Most importantly, we were able to move into our house a week before having our first child – a deadline that was critical for us and Matt met it. Now a year into our home we have had almost no issues and very happy with our decision to remodel.
Dream House Accomplished !
Matt and his crew were extremely professional and a pleasure to work with from start to finish. Matt refinished my boring outdated 80’s kitchen to my dream kitchen – on time and in budget. It came out perfect!
Eye For Detail
Matt Skubic was a great asset on our project as his background in architecture and hands-on renovation work helped him convey our requirements to both our architect and Matt’s sub-contractors. Matt also has a good eye for detail so we would often ask his opinion regarding decisions on design or colors.
Our architect’s plans were extensive and Matt’s attention to detail and knowledge of architecture, was an essential trait to completing our home. We have been in our home for a year and highly recommend Matt Skubic and his company, Live Oak Construction Group to use when renovating or remodeling any home.
The finished product that Matt produced looks absolutely fabulous and we consistently receive compliments on his work. I wanted particular attention paid to certain architectural details and Matt understood this completely. His discerning eye was key in getting these details just right.
An absolute pleasure!
Working with Matt was an absolute pleasure. He was extremely professional and a very knowledgeable builder. He always presented us with varying price options and suggestions, helping us to create our dream home. Working with Matt we actually greatly enjoyed the building process, unlike our other experiences with builders. I would recommend him to anyone!!
Matt and crew were very professional and helpful as our project progressed and some changes to original plans were made. I would use Matt again and recommend him to others.
Couldn’t be happier
Live Oak remodeled our kitchen, master bathroom and finished the basement and exceeded all of our expectations. They did what we wanted, when we wanted and at the agreed upon prices. They did such a terrific job we had them do another job for us at another location.
In the kitchen they removed our old counter top and put in granite, with an under counter sink and new fixtures.
In the master bath it was a total re-do. They removed old brass fixtures and demo’d the cabinetry and shower. They put in new floor tile, counters with under sink installation and granite. The shower was replaced with modern fixtures, new tile and glass surround.
All-in-all we couldn’t be happier.
Looking forward to next project together
Our Architectural firm has had the pleasure of working with Live Oak LLC on several remodeling projects in Atlanta. We were pleased with the quality and efficiency of their work, as were our clients. The architectural background of the principal brings a high level of attention to detail. We have enjoyed collaborating with Matt during renovation projects. He is a team player who is focused on a successful project. It is our pleasure to recommend Live Oak to our clients, and I look forward to our next project together.
We hired Live Oak Construction Group LLC to get our newly acquired condo in move in condition. They installed chandeliers, track lighting, fans, and dimmer switches. They added some new electrical outlets, and installed a number of ceiling fans. A closet was transformed into an open area with a marble desktop. They installed shelving, bathroom accessories, and wall mounted a TV. All work was performed very professionally and totally to our satisfaction. Matt knows his business, and is very pleasant to work with. He is punctual, and responds to phone calls, text messages and emails. He is trustworthy and the work was done according to his estimates. We highly recommend Live Oak Construction Group, and would not hesitate to hire them again when we need something done in our house.
The job was done expertly, as designed and on time. The workers did everything they could to clean the areas everyday so that would not look so much like a worksite. The cost was also within the estimate I was given.
It was a pleasure
Matt Skubic and his crew at Live Oak Construction Group did an excellent job on our small renovation. It was completed on time and within budget. Any add ons were discussed and estimated beforehand. Matt is a good communicator, very attentive to detail and knowledgeable of all aspects of a project. it was a pleasure to work with Live Oak Construction Group, and we will certainly use them again.
Matt took over from contractor who abandoned job
Matt took over a whole house renovation project from contractor who abandoned the job. He was thrust into a difficult situation and the bottom line is that he got the job done and did it with skill and care. As an architect by education, Matt has good ideas and is able to muster sub contractors with the necessary ability to get the particular task at hand accomplished. This was a very expensive and upscale renovation and required Matt to stay on top of budgets and timing. We know times are tough in this business at the moment but you should not overlook this young man’s abilities.
Top Quality Service
We hired Live Oak Construction Group after interviewing other builders in Atlanta. There is no doubt that Matt Skubic and his team provide professional and top-quality service to their customers. My kitchen remodel was something I had dreamed about and Matt made my vision come true. His sub-contractors are some of the best in the business and the entire process was pleasant with the end result being a gorgeous kitchen to entertain family and friends. I would definitely hire Live Oak for any future projects and would recommend them highly to those considering building a home or remodeling one or more rooms.
As a designer I was involved in helping select the GC for this master bathroom renovation. I loved working with Matt as he was flexible with client preferences, respectful of the budget and resourceful when developing solutions to challenges that become uncovered with a renovation of an existing home. I had worked with Matt previously on a basement build out and was impressed with his ability to be economical which in my professional opinion is harder than having a big budget. His architectural background allowed him to add value to the design process so as not to spend time on ideas that structurally were not possible. I would recommend him again if the opportunity presented itself.
Matt redid my kitchen island for me and it turned out beautifully. I had previously interviewed other contractors who underwhelmed me with their lack of ideas and their personal style, but when Matt came in and talked with me about my vision for the island, he got it right away and immediately took out his tape measure and did some calculations. I felt like we were on the same page and he knew what I wanted. He listened. Matt is very detailed oriented (an architect) and is as picky as I am which was fantastic. Matt also returns every phone call, every email and quickly resolved any issue that arose during the project. He was always available to me which was very important. No issue too small for discussion. Our new island is huge – 128″ x 68″ – and it looks like a beautiful piece of furniture. We love the finished product and everyone who sees it comments on the beauty, the workmanship and the finish. I am so happy with it and I now enjoy cooking and entertaining more than ever. Thank you Matt – please use Live Oak with confidence!
