Customer Testimonial: My wife and I used Cres Builders for major work to a home we purchased at Lake Lanier. Mirko was very professional and the quality of the work was beyond what we expected.

Customer Testimonial: Mirko Attolini owner of Cres Builders is absolutely a class act and does top notch work. He also only employs top notch contractors whom he's worked with for years. We hired Mirko at the recommendation of people at our church. Mirko built a schedule and cost base and absolutely kept his word at every point. He completed about a 1600sq ft basement beautifully. He also came up with several great ideas along the way such as building a barn wood wall with wood from my in-laws farm barns they were selling. I highly recommend Mirko who will keep his word on paper or just a hand shake.

Project Scope of Work: Build a custom single family detached home on the customer's Property.
Customer Testimonial: "When I began our building project, I started with a contractor, then found an architect. At the end of the design phase, our contractor suddenly backed out, leaving me scrambling to find a replacement. I went to Houzz and, based on reviews, contacted several contractors. From the initial meeting, Mirko Attolini of CRES Builders set himself apart. He sat with us for two hours, going through are plans, in order to fully understand our vision. He also brought to our attention possible areas of cost savings for us to consider. The next day, while still in the bidding process, he sent me pictures of potential garage doors to see if we like the style. It was clear to me that he had a very good grasp on our style and vision from that email. Even more impressive to me was when he took my inspiration photo and discussed it with the window manufacturer, who was able to achieve the same look, something that I honestly did not think was reasonable to even hope for.
The bid from Mirko was not the lowest, nor the highest, but it did fall within the range I was told to expect by many. Throughout the process, Mirko was very professional and courteous, as were his subcontractors. He was very organized and meticulous with details. Lines of communication were always open. I appreciated the regular emails plotting out the timeline for upcoming phases of construction. One thing that impressed even my architect was the timing of the entire project. There were no major delays: everyone showed up when they were supposed to, the schedule went smoothly, and we were actually in our house by the date that we were hoping to be before the initial contractor backed out. In the end, we have a beautiful new home, very well constructed, with the highest attention to detail. I would definitely recommend Mirko Attolini to anyone looking for a building contractor."

Project Scope of Work: Build an addition (Golf Studio) for the customers home office that looked like it was built during the original build of the home and update the exterior windows of the main house.
Customer Testimonial: I had been looking for contractors for additional building as indoor golf studio to our existing house. After I interviewed five other contractors, I fortunately found CRES Builders through internet. At first I had good impression with Mirko, owner of CRES Builders, by his response and polite attitude. Even free estimate, he spent time with me for details. And he tried to understand my need. Through good communications with him I felt that he is honest and sincere as well as his knowledge and experience. All his crews including subcontractors and venders are excellent and have good manners. There were challenges about roof required some complicate issues (such as 12 feet high ceiling, not cover sky light on the roof of main house, matching angle of roof from front view, also considering bathroom and foyer high, and water flow correctly). Amazingly Mirko could solve all problems by his structural engineer's effort. My husband and I am very happy with their excellent job. The quality of building is more than we expected. Even we made many change orders, Mirko organized schedule and conducted people very well. We communicated often by emails and texts. Because we trust him by his professional job, we asked him more projects of main house, 25 years old. He took care of most of our projects such as windows and doors replacement, rodded area repairs, under roof facia paint, and so on. We are totally satisfied with his complete work! It is our great honor to introduce Mirko to our neighbors and friends. Our house could make beautiful transformation because of him. Mirko built our dream as his motto! Thank you very much, Mirko!

Customer's testimonial: We decided to build a sunroom and I called Mirko and CRES Builders for a quote. Immediately from the start I could tell Mirko was different then the rest. He listened to my vision and made some very good suggestions. Once we hired Mirko, he did a great job from start to finish. From setting the right expectations on what to expect with budget, timeline, and day-to-day working, to keeping us up-to-date with the progress, to following through on the job within the set budget. Even more, Mirko was able to point out some potential issues and address them so we do not have any problems in the future. Mirko has an eye for detail. At the end of the job he even had our whole downstairs professionally cleaned and the entire driveway pressure cleaned. We couldn't ask for more. We love our beautiful sunroom and will be using it for years to come! Thank you Mirko and CRES Builders! We love our sunroom addition!

Project Scope of Work: Build a 38'x`6' deck, 12'x12' sunroom that attahes to the existing breakfast room and a 12'x8' covered porch.
Customer Testimonial: "I had been looking for contractors for sun room / deck addition to my house. It involved some kitchen work as well. I called several contractors and finalized CRES builders. I did not check any reference or even their website ( even after Mirko asked me to do due diligence and check his credentials ). The reason was obvious. Our first meeting with Mirko and we knew he was perfect contractor for our job. Step by step he walked us through whole process ( county permit, work and finance schedule etc.). I have never met such a punctual person as Mirko. It suited me well as I am very punctual myself and wanted to finish project in 4-6 week. Almost everyday Mirko used to arrive early in the morning to do inspection of work done by his team, in the evening he would update me about progress and the work schedule for the next day. Once the work was done, we were so impressed with his work, I started passing on his information to my friends and neighbors. He and his team did excellent job. Just earlier this week Forsyth County issued successful work completion certificate and Mirko promptly sent me the document. Even he took care of some of the post work things like get cleaned my house by arranging maid, installation of pine-straw/sod on soil (damaged due to construction) and pressure washing my drive way. None of these items were included into our contract. He took step further and finished the job in almost flawless manner. My wife and I (should I say my neighbors and my nephew in Baltimore ) are very impressed with his work, his work ethics, his punctuality and his feedback to make whole project picture perfect. Thanks to Mirko and his team."

His crew is amazing. They cleaned up every time before they left and tried to make sure we were happy. They were times I didn't even notice we were living thru a remodeling.
Mirko is extremely honest, and friendly. His character is one of a kind. He gives an estimate and a deadline, and he makes sure it all works out. No surprises! Looking forward to the next project!"

Project Scope of Work: Interior & Exterior Remodeling: Interior: Remodel the kitchen and master bathroom, remove a wall to create open concept. Exterior: Exterior painting, roofing repairs and landscaping.
Customer's testimonial: "I worked with Mirko on a 6 bed 5.5 bath investment property in Deerfield/Dunwoody area. The scope of the project included a brand new kitchen (cabinets, appliances, floors, exterior refinishing and painting, minor updating of basement bathroom, landscaping, master bathroom partial updating, opening up the family room/kitchen, garage finishing and other small things around the house. Total cost went over my initial budget by about 10-15% but I expected that in a large project like this on an older house. I also added in additional work; door knobs and hinge change, garage and lighting needs so that explained much of the increase, on top of electrical work that need to be done to code since the previous owner did a lot of DIY work and cut a lot of corners. Mirko was very aware of the budget and always thought on the clients perspective, figuring out way to lower cost without compromising on quality and esthetics. HIs professionalism, experience and network truly makes him a step above the rest.
Mirko is absolutely the ideal contractor that you can have. I received a scope of work and itemized price estimate along with timeline. From the beginning he was very open and was understanding of everything I needed and staying within budget. Through out the project he gave regular updates but never pestered with minor questions. I am not local to the area and needed someone who understood what I wanted and able to work independently to resolve issues that came up to my liking. Mirko did everything I needed and more. In addition to meeting all the items on the to do list, he made great recommendations on what to do and not to do for my purpose. Loved that is Mirko prides himself on quality work and never cutting corners. Mirko was a true partner and there was an incredible amount of trust he built in such a short time.
I would recommend him to anyone and would look forward to working with him again."

Project Scope of Work: Remodel Exterior & Interior,
Customer's testimonial: "As a real estate agent, I'm very picky on contractors. When my husband and I needed to restore and update our lake house, we chose Mirko of CRES Home Remodel. He is very honest, knowledgeable and professional. Out of the three contractors we interviewed, he is not the cheapest, but he offered the best value. Mirko put his customer's interest as his priority. His architectural and building background put him above the rest. Our house was damaged in a storm. We thought that the restoration would be overwhelming. Mirko made the process very easy and did a great job to restore the house into like new condition. When we needed an upgrade later, we hired Mirko again. He designed and remodeled two bathrooms for us. The end products are beautiful. Mirko is meticulous and dedicated to meet our budget and timeline. When one of the bathtubs we ordered was out of stock locally, Mirko drove 100 miles to a Lowe's store in middle Georgia to get it in order to meet the project schedule. He did our restoration and remodel jobs at a very reasonable price and in a timely manner. I have referred Mirko to my clients. They are all very satisfied with his service. Choosing a contractor is not an easy job. I'm glad that I chose Mirko. He is my preferred contractor. If you want to work with an honest general contractor who offers quality work at a reasonable price, you"
