CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS

David Hooks Cutting Edge Construction managed a time critical build out of tenant improvements for the headquarters of Island Conservation. David was on top of the schedule and met the project budget and timeline. A real pleasure to work with a seasoned pro.

Joe B.

David is professional, knowledgeable timely, honest, organized, and generally makes, what could be a difficult situation, easy. He even found ways to cut costs for us. The subcontractors that he employs are also wonderful. He remodeled our large kitchen, replaced a balcony door, and redid the tile on our first floor. The whole operation ran smoothly and the finished product is superb! We appreciated working with him very much and would recommend him without hesitation.

David Hooks Construction managed the build out and transition of my bakery to its new location in Watsonville, Ca. Due to the nature of our wholesale business, there was simply no opportunity to ever stop baking as the project got under way. This presented a logistical nightmare, but David showed tremendous skill as he managed the critical timeline from start to finish. Every obstacle along the way was met head on and resolved swiftly. David was committed to keeping within the budget and staying on track to make the dead line. His professional workmanship yielded a superb result, on time and on budget. I highly recommend David Hooks for any construction project you have planned, be it commercial or residential. You simply can’t go wrong.
