Description Of Work 

A complete remodel of two bathrooms.

Client Comments :

Overall, it was a very impressive construction. Marc came up with some great ideas for redoing our existing bathrooms - to modernize them. As with any major construction project, it stretched out longer than anticipated and had several glitches. However, with Enna's help, we worked through all of the concerns. We are very pleased with the remodels and thoroughly enjoy the bathrooms.

Description Of Work 

Installed new granite kitchen counter tops and travertine backsplash, complete demo and construction of new master bath and second baths including pocket door, cabinetry, tile and stone work.

Client Comments :

I have noticed that all of the reviews that are negative come from people who didn't hire Horizon. Read the review from people who actually had work done if you want a valuable opinion. When we first met Mark Besnos (owner) at our house, he asked a lot of questions, offered suggestions, and was not at all afraid to offer his opinion when he thought we were wrong (this can be off-putting I suppose, except after you work with Mark for a while you will come to appreciate that he really knows what he is doing and you should listen to him!). Of the five bids we received for this work, Mark's was by far the most detailed and the only one that covered all of the details we discussed. Not the cheapest bid by far, but when I went back and looked at the holes in the other bids I had no doubt they would have change ordered me to death and I would have ended up spending the same or more likely more. The work started promptly and once started stayed pretty much on schedule throughout. Enna always kept us informed when things were going to be done, so there were never any major surprises. There were problems along the way as there always are in remodeling, and this is where Horizon really shines in my opinion - Mark always said "Don't worry, we will take care of it", and they always did. Every time. If you have had remodel work done before you know how rare this is. It's the way a business should be run, unfortunately many contractors don't seem to get it. We are extremely pleased with the work they did. In particular, our master bath which has all new cabinetry, onyx counter, travertine floors and shower walls, frameless glass shower and rainfall shower are spectacular. I remark to my wife when I get out of the shower in the morning that I feel like I'm staying at the Ritz Carlton! Thanks Mark and Enna. You guys are great!

Remodel upstairs bathroom, remodel master bathroom, expand kitchen. Custom made bathroom and kitchen cabinetry, installed new flooring, kitchen appliances and bathroom hardware.

Client Comments :

There are already the well-acknowledged passages associated with life; birth, marriage, divorce, graduation, the new job. I’d like to add one more—remodeling. The decision to embark upon the renovation path, in most cases, involves entering into a relationship with a contractor. Selecting one, in many respects, is only slightly less important than say choosing a spouse or deciding to have children. Remodeling your home can be a journey filled with uncertainty, havoc and frustration as you work toward the beautiful surroundings you envisioned those many months earlier. As the old knight who guarded the room of chalices in a scene from the movie, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, mused, “Choose wisely.” Fortunately, we did when we contracted with Mark of Horizon Construction. You want your contractor to be competent, trustworthy, and reliable. Mark was all of these and more. Mark takes a personal interest in his work. He is on the site much of the time ensuring that his workers are doing their best. When things go wrong, he makes sure they get fixed. Like any relationship, there will be disagreements or misunderstandings, but Mark handled them in a professional and sincere manner. The bottom line here is that Mark wants his customers to be happy. I could relate several episodes of Mark’s commitment to customer satisfaction, but the one that meant the most to us was when we had a sewer line back up into the house (no fault of Mark’s). Out of panic, I called Mark and he came out immediately and with his foreman worked on clearing the line. He didn't have to do that. He could have told us to call a plumber and gone back to what he was doing. I highly recommend Horizon Construction and Mark as your choice for your remodel project. You will have chosen wisely.

Remodeled bathroom.

Client Comments :

This is an excellent contractor. They did excellent work on time. There were some new building codes we didn't know about. Horizon made it right. They exchanged a toilet we had purchased for one that met code, and installed 2 automatic light switches. They did this at NO EXTRA CHARGE. If I have more remodeling to do in the future, I will call them

Description Of Work 

Remodeled entire kitchen.

Client Comments :

Our contractor was Mark Besnos. Mark is definitely who you want doing your remodeling. Mark is fastidious. His attention to detail was unbelievable. As with any job, there were things that needed tweaking. Mark made sure everything was absolutely perfect. We had an issue with the stainless steel tiles for the backsplash. After installing it was obvious that some of the tiles had a different finish (brushed finish instead of shiny finish). Mark had the tile company come to the house. He made sure the issue was fixed. His office staff, Enna, and Anna, were terrific. There was never a time when I called that I didn't get a hold of Mark, Enna, or Anna. The best part, everyone who has come to see the kitchen, even all the subcontractors, complimented us on the kitchen. It should be on the cover of Better Homes & Gardens.

Description Of Work 

Constructed a walk-in shower, installed a second water line to accommodate shower heads, constructed a pocket-door to separate the bedroom from dressing room, installed new toilet, installed Led lights and other electrical work, installed new faucets in kitchen and 3 bathrooms and painted...

Client Comments :

I chose Horizon Construction and Remodeling because of their excellent presentation and fabulous reputation on Angie’s List. This was a wise decision because HCR proved to be an ethical, caring and efficient company. My original remodeling job was to remove the bathtub in the master suite and install a walk-in shower. During the remodeling, I added additional electrical, plumbing changes and repairs to my home. The HCR crew held my hands throughout the whole process. The office staff called me frequently to check how I was doing and to make sure everything was going okay. The workers, in my home, were hardworking, fast and clean. There were a couple of hiccups with the job but I was very impressed with the prompt, same day, actions taken to correct any problems. In addition, all inspections were passed on first try. The price was reasonable for all of the work done and some things were not even charged. I couldn't be happier and I wholeheartedly recommend Horizon Construction and Remodeling and I will call them again for my next remodeling project.

Kitchen Remodel.

Client Comments :

Horizon just completed a gut rehab remodel of our kitchen (which included removing a wall) and we were very pleased with the whole process. This was our first remodeling project and we didn't quite know what to expect going into it. they did an absolutely wonderful job keeping everything on track and helping us each step of the way. They truly went above and beyond to ensure that our needs were met and that we were happy with the end result. The remodel was completed in a timely manner and each of the work crews that came in were courteous, professional and cleaned everything up at the end of each day. Another plus for us was that Horizon was all inclusive. We didn't have to choose a separate place to buy/install the cabinets from and another for the counters, etc. They handle everything which makes it so much easier!

Client Comments :

This is the second time we use Horizon and will probably use them again. They were very professional and finished the job ahead of time. Horizon was not the cheapest contractor but they were very close to the cheapest quote. They never skipped a day of work and made sure that they were done ahead of the promised date. Mark and Enna were great to work with.

Mr. & Mrs. Cross

Fullerton

Description Of Work 

Demolish existing wall and removing old fireplace and remodeling the entertainment room with installation of a new wall, custom cabinets and entertainment center along the window treatments.

Client Comments :

This is the second time working with Horizon Construction. They remodeled my guest bathroom and the experience was so pleasant and professional that I hired them again to remodel our entertainment room. We had an old ugly and asymmetric fireplace that needed to be removed so that we can center the TV on the wall with some custom cabinets installed. As before, our experience with Horizon through the entire remodeling process was smooth. Even when we hit a snag, they worked with us to stay on schedule as much as possible. I do not regret going with Horizon again and would look to them first with my next home project as well.

Mr. & Mrs. Le Bouvier

Fountain Valley CA

Description Of Work 

Removed tired, worn wood siding and replaced with stucco and manufactured stone. Installed a new electrical panelboard, energy efficient windows, and entry-way tile. Painted the entire exterior of the house.

Client Comments :

We had been considering an exterior renovation for some time. Our mid 1970's wood siding was looking weathered and our old aluminum windows were difficult to open and close and not very energy efficient. We were also thinking about enclosing a 2nd story deck off the master bedroom. Rather than splitting these into separate jobs with 2 or 3 specialty contractors we wanted to find a company capable of doing it all. After reviewing Angie's List we found Horizon Construction & Remodeling in Orange, CA. They had a lot of recent positive reviews covering a broad range of different projects.

We spoke by phone with Enna Eskin, Horizon's office mgr, who spent quite a bit of time getting an understanding of what we wanted done. Shortly thereafter, we met with company owner Mark Besnos and discussed options. Mark was very informative and offered a lot of design advice in addition to his contracting know-how. At a 2nd meeting we reviewed Horizons quote and agreed on the scope of work and price. This was presented in a very professional written format. We did decide to exclude the 2nd story deck enclosure.

Horizon had a crew ready to work 3 business days later. They removed the old siding and unfortunately did not find any plywood sheathing underneath. This, with a couple other things became Change Order No. 1. We eventually had a few more change orders for changes we requested or Horizon suggested but Horizon was able to stay within their original schedule of 4 weeks even with a few lost days due to weather. The crew was always at work early, every day. They were pleasant to be around. They were eager to make sure everything was done correctly and to our expectations. They did a pretty good job of managing the debris and cleaned up everyday. You could tell these guys took pride in their work. They spent 10 minutes on their final day taking pictures of themselves in front of the house.

Window installation day: They came, they installed and they were out in one day. No worries.

We want to point out that we were so comfortable with Mark's soft-sell presentation, our gut feel, and the competence we perceived from Horizon that we accepted their proposal without any competitive bids! Could we have gotten better pricing? Possibly. But the fact that the house now looks great and the whole process was virtually stress-free made it well worth it. And while the cost turned out to be a little more than we'd planned to spend we feel we received a good value from Horizon.

We'd recommend Horizon and would use them for any future work we need done.

Horizon installed a shower where there was not one, installed a fan/light, & enclosed the shower area with a wall & door. Porcelain tile was laid for the shower.

Client Comments :

I was very satisfied with their work overall. Mark & Enna track the progress of the job & want to know how their workers are performing. They are very responsive to any issues/concerns that may come up. I found that when I described what I wanted in detail, Mark did his best & found the product & found a way to accomplish the requested task. He is especially good with design & detail.

Description Of Work 

Kitchen remodel: replaced tile countertops with granite; replaced backsplash with new tile, extended the kitchen island and replaced top with granite. Installed new sink, faucet, cooktop, and hood.

Client Comments :

We are extremely happy with the remodel. Mark Besnos was very helpful with design ideas. Enna, the office manager checked in with us regularly to be sure all was progressing well. The work was performed promptly. When the appliances that we ordered ourselves didn't arrive on time, Horizon was able to reschedule us with no problems. All the the workers were very polite and diligent. For every tiny request we had, the company was very responsive and worked to make sure we were 100% satisfied. Based on their work, we now have them installing molding throughout the house and will hire them again in the future for our remodeling jobs.

Description Of Work 

Complete remodel of kitchen, demo of old exterior concrete stone and fireplace. Replaced with stack stone. Installation of wood flooring.

Client Comments :

We went through several contractors (6 to be exact) before we found the right one. From the moment we called Horizon Construction, Enna made us feel very comfortable. We explained to Enna what we wanted and what we were looking for. She stated that Mark Besnos would be out to see us and see what he can do. Mark who is the owner and designer gave us a very beautiful vision of what our kitchen would look like. We felt at ease with Mark and fell in love with his ideas. We have finally found our contractor. We only had signed a contract with Horizon to remodel our kitchen but asked mark what he could also do with the exterior of the house and gave us another beautiful vision. He recommended to remove the old concrete stone around the house and by the fireplace and replace it with stack stone. The final out come is amazing. We also wanted to remove the old carpet and install wood flooring and gave him the job as well and they did an excellent job of installing our wood flooring.

Our overall experience with the Horizon Construction crew was very good. The crew was very polite, on time, and cleaned up after them selves at the end of the work day. Mark & his forman were there almost everyday to ensure that the projects were getting done as we have specified and would correct any issues we had with some of the installations. Given the amount of time we gave Horizon Construction they finished the job as specified and did a beautiful job. We have gotten many, many compliments on our house and can only thank Mark, Enna, and the Horizon Construction crew for all there hard work and for making our experience a great one.

They worked on all the plumbing. They took out all the old pipes and installed new ones in the house and outside of it. They had to take out the driveway and they replaced it as well.

They did tremendous work and they were on it all the time. They cleaned up after themselves and we couldn't be more pleased. They were always courteous and were honest. We would use them again and would give them our highest recommendation.

Mrs. Smith

San Pedro CA

Description Of Work 

We needed a new door and safety ramp added to our back bedroom. I called Horizon and spoke to Enna. She was kind and helpful. We needed a new ramp and door added immediately. I made an appointment for the next day. Mark showed up and we explained what we needed. He gave us a very fair price and told me his crew could start on the following Monday. (The appointment was Wednesday, so Monay was an awesome start date.) Mark added suggestions that really made a huge difference to our new room. He suggested a safety sensor light that has really added to safety of the ramp and room.

Client Comments :

Mark and his crew are wonderful. They arrived on time. They worked all day, every day until the work was completed. They cleaned up their work each day. They did an excellent job. We had just installed new hard wood floors in the room and I was concerned that they would be damaged when the old window was removed and the new door was added. It was never a problem. Mark's team was so outstanding, they protected the floors and everything else in the new room. The new door and ramp are outstanding. The next time we have any remodeling work to do, I will call Horizon first. They are an honest, hard working, excellent company.

Dianne Rlusk

Orange CA

Description Of Work 

Installed new cabinets, new countertops, new backsplash, new flooring, new cooktop and cooktop hood. Upgraded the lighting and electrical.

Client Comments :

The kitchen remodel started off as just replacing the countertops, the cooktop and hood, but after taking off the existing countertop, the existing cabinets were in such poor shape, we agreed to replace all of the cabinets. The contractor brought in his kitchen designer to the house and mapped out the new cabinets. They even had a mock-up of the kitchen, on paper, before they left, so we had a good idea of what the kitchen would look like upon completion. This added 10 days to the entire project, but from start to finish the kitchen remodel took 1 month. The workers masked off the work area during the remodel, so that kept the dust down (still had to wipe down surfaces, but it could've been a lot worse). They cleaned up after themselves everyday, removed all of the debris and left the area as clean as possible. I was very happy with the overall work and the timeliness of the project.

Mr. Brecht

Huntington Beach CA

Description Of Work 

Complete Bathroom Remodel. Included demolition and installation of vanity, countertop, sink, faucets, mirrors, tile flooring, patching, painting, shower tile with glass doors.

Client Comments :

Mark Besnos (contractor) came over within a couple of days of me contacting Horizon Construction to look at the bathroom and layout some possible options for how I wanted to have the remodeling done. I got a bid just for the demo and labor, which seemed like a fair price from the other companies I talked too. I later decided it was easiest to also have them do the countertops, mirrors, and shower doors. Their price was competitive and best of all everything could be done much quicker than if I had gone through Home Depot or other places to have it done. When he came out he had vanity and countertop samples with him and when I inquired about some other designs he was able to bring them on the next visit. He came out on several occasions before any contracts were signed. He was even willing to come out in the evenings or on Saturday to accomodate my schedule. Once the work started, everything went smoothly and they seemed to always be on schedule with the different contractors and materials arrivals. The workers cleaned up after themselves and laid down paper to keep the mess to a minimum. Enna Eskin (office manager) would call and/or email to ask questions and keep me updated on everything throughout. The job was completed as scheduled and within budget. Overall, I had a pleasant experience with Horizon Construction and would use them in the future.

Client Comments :

They were always on time. They helped me with the coloring of my walls and made an informative decision. They were very easy to work with and were extremely professional. They even patched up all the scratches and holes in the wood. I am very pleased with how the job turned out and would recommend them to everyone. I also thought the price seemed very reasonable and fair. I'm getting ready to sell my house and they definitely got it into selling shape!

Huntington Beach CA

Description Of Work 

Removed popcorn ceiling from entire house; patched and repaired ceiling and applied a flat finish; painted ceiling and touched up existing paint as needed; and put a cement wheelchair ramp leading to front door.

Client Comments :

The job was started three days after we got an estimate and signed a contract. On the first day, they removed the existing plywood ramp, moved the household furniture out of their way, removed the popcorn ceiling in the entire house, and started patching. After working a full day, they cleaned up, and came back the next day at 8:30 a.m. to complete patching and repairing the ceiling. Then they carefully applied a flat finish ceiling, which is more exacting work than blowing on an "orange peel" finish. They painted the ceiling and applied touch up paint left over from when I painted the house nine years ago. Then they cleaned up and left. On the next work day, the crew arrived early again to put in the cement wheelchair ramp. Mark checked their work and insisted that the crew completely repaint one bedroom. Looks to me like they exactly matched the color and bought a gallon of the same paint I used. They did a beautiful job! We were amazed.

My husband and I are impressed with this company--both Mark and Enna as well as their very competent crew. We slept in our own home while the work was being done, and the crew replaced the furniture where it belonged and were clean (non-smokers) and courteous. This is the way construction companies ought to operate. We'll recommend them and I'm sure use them again. Thanks for the recommendation.

We HIGHLY recommend Horizon Construction. Mark Besnos, general contractor is intelligent and straightforward and was professional from start to finish. He knew the "right way" to do the job (according to my very particular engineer husband!) from the start. His workers were also very professional, came on time, and cleaned up in a timely and thorough manner. The job was finished in record time and with excellent workmanship. Don't even think twice! We would--and will--enthusiastically use Horizon Construction in the future for whatever home improvement needs we have (and we are REALLY hard to please!).

It was finished around the time it was estimated. We were very pleased with the work. We were also very pleased with the project manager, Mark Besnos. I could call him anytime if there were questions that needed to be answered. He made sure everything was going OK and going smooth. I talked several times to the office manager, Enna Eskin. She was always very polite and asked if everything was ok. If I needed anything and could not contact Mark, then feel free to contact the office. Horizon Construction & Remodeling did a great job. Mark was like a tudor and went step by step with the whole project with us. I am proud to give out his business card and proud to show my friends and family what was done.
