Angi is doing my kitchen right now and I second the accolades! She and her project manager Tami are so great- they are on top of every detail, and keeping this massive project running so smooth. Angi has great attention to detail and really LISTENS to what you want and your vision for what you are trying to achieve. It was important to me to have a contractor who understands historic properties and takes great pride in the work (her crew is talented, SO courteous, responsive, and professional). Things go wrong with projects and it is never an issue. I'm in the middle of the job and she has been there for me time and time again. It mattered to me too that I could hire and support a local, woman owned business.

Based on a recommendation from a trusted design firm (Elements), I hired The Eva Claire Corp to renovate a detached garage with a pool bath/shower, multi-purpose space that included a living room, sofa bed/TV, laundry and large closet and storage area. The cost was approximately $80,000 and the work was completed in approximately 3 1/2 months. This was a complicated project as it involved new plumbing, raising the floor up to 5 inches, installing A/C and a new electrical panel. During the renovation it was determined that the original plumbing under the house had deteriorated and would need to be replaced. In an older home "surprises" are to be expected and the experience of The Eva Claire Corp handled them just fine. The entire team was first class in every way. From President, Angi Brittain to Project Manager, Kore MacKenzie and the experienced hands on and highly skilled workers, Matt and Rob. This is a cost conscious firm that saves us significant expense by suggesting among other things that we go with an acid-washed concrete floor rather than tile. We saved thousands of dollars. Suggestions on a closet design were welcome as well to improve functionality and save expense. The sub-contractors were excellent and came when they were scheduled, did professional quality work, cleaned up the work area and were extremely polite. The detailed oversight by Project Manager, Kore MacKenzie was particularly noteworthy. Nothing missed her inspection after a sub-contractor had left. She noticed things I did not and made sure they were taken care of promptly. We had weekly meetings to go over the progress and discuss any concerns and were given a detailed schedule of who would be on the job the following week and what they would be doing. With the rare exception of new doors that were delivered late everything else was on-time. Matt and Rob were here most days and were talented in so many ways. My wife and I made some changes as the renovation progressed and this duo quickly and efficiently incorporated those modifications into the schedule. Everyone we dealt with at The Eva Claire Corp., including the sub-contractors had a pleasant attitude and always did more and never less than the job required. We highly recommend The Eva Claire Corp for general contracting and renovation projects."

Our project involved building a timber truss lanai, reroofing (with a substantial amount of decking replaced), and an architectural wall. The reality of my vision was a site built timber truss lanai, the type of structure that you see in all of those house magazines! With a set of architectural drawings I contacted six different contractors, Eva Claire Corp was one of only two that responded, Angi understood what I wanted and worked out a construction schedule and estimate. No project goes off without a problem, it is how we deal with them. My delays, were caused by MY architect, Angi and her team worked through the issues (one of them a difficult structural one) maintaining my vision, keeping on schedule, and keeping the expenses for the unforeseen reasonable. The crew were always very professional, and kept the work area clean. Weekly meetings and emails with updates are great to keep updated on your project, and any issues were handled quickly. Ultimately was I happy with the project, simply ecstatic! So much that Eva Claire Corp will be building the second phase of my project."

Beautiful work from your craftsman! It is soooo comforting to know as a consumer that my hard-earned money is well spent on positive results followed by a quality-driven outcome from a reputable company. I tell anyone who will listen of my wonderful experience with The Eva Claire Corporation."

“In 2010 I embarked on a project to renovate my kitchen and felt that I, as an architect, could conduct the tasks on my own. Quickly I realized it was a big job and I needed a general contractor to complete the project. I contacted Angi Brittain, knowing of her work in renovations, and asked if she would be interested in getting involved. She agreed and we quickly signed a contract. With her involvement, the project began to move smoothly and at a continuous pace. We worked as a team, with Angi bringing crucial trades and craftspeople together to create the needed details to finish the project. She also willingly interfaced with some of my selected vendors to coordinate the entire job. At each meeting she reviewed the project schedule with me, forecasting the upcoming events, and kept me up to date with what was expected from me in terms of product selections, etc. in the coming weeks. Angi is a well organized professional with hands on knowledge of construction. Drywall work, carpentry, and painting were self performed with skill and care. During the project, I added items to the scope of work. Angi responded quickly with options and associated costs. I feel that Angi was always considerate of my time, my budget and understood the overall design direction I desired for the kitchen. The finished project exceeds my expectations in large part to the professionalism and expertise of Angi and her team.”

“I hired The Eva Claire Corporation a few years ago to completely renovate a vacation home I had purchased in Tampa. The work was extensive and in all areas their skills were top-notch. The finished product was wonderful. Looking back on the project, I think that I was most impressed by our Project Manager’s communication abilities. Even though I was in California and my home was in Florida, she was able to inform me of my options for cost-effective savings, point-out design and construction techniques that would save me money, and keep me informed of progress. In my experience, many contractors fail to have good communication skills – In The Eva Claire Corporation’s case, this seems to be their strongest skill – they were able to advise on every step of the construction project via voice, e-mail and texts. I felt completely “in the loop.” On-site, our project manager worked hard to insure her subcontractors finished their designated tasks in a timely and workmanlike manner. I was completely satisfied with the work produced and have recommended The Eva Claire Corporation to many of my friends.”

“Angi is an outstanding entrepreneur who is self-motivated, driven and well-organized. She not only brings fresh ideas to the table but she also adds her own special warmth and genuine personality to the workplace that motivates everyone around her to achieve more.”

“Angi Brittain was the project superintendent on a historic rehab project here in Hyde Park, Tampa. The scope of the work was continuously modified, and at the able direction of Angi, it was well-coordinated. This was not an easy task as the owner of the building occupied the premises during construction. Angi also ably handled any disruption, mostly unforeseen, with skill and grace under fire. Her managerial experience and her practical knowledge are unbeatable. She is very detail-oriented and has great follow through. I highly recommend Angi for projects large and small; she will be very attentive no matter what.”

“I have worked with Angi supplying windows and doors on more than half a dozen projects. I have always found her to be honest and fair in her dealings with me. In addition, she is punctual about being on time and open to ideas on how the project might be improved upon. I would recommend her highly to anyone looking for a general contractor to do a project with”

“My wife and I contracted with The Eva Claire Corporation to build a new kitchen and new master bathroom on to our house, while at the same time, completely renovating the existing portions of our newly purchased 3,000 square foot home. We loved the location of our home, but neither of us really liked the style of the house. So, we essentially gutted every room, and with the help of The Eva Claire Corporation’s design team, who was careful to maintain the existing structural “bones” of the house to help save money for the more decorative elements, we transformed the interior and exterior of our home to a style more suiting to our tastes.

Overall, the process was very smooth, considering the degree of disruption any construction project like this evokes on one’s life! The design team listened to our needs, helped up prioritize our desires in accordance with our budget, and integrated our “wish list” into a design which fell within our budget.

Our designer and project manager held our hands the entire step of the process. They were constantly in communication with us, keeping us abreast of the progress, letting us know what to expect in the next phase, and giving us a head’s up as to what we would need to anticipate and/or decisions and selections we would need to make along the way in enough time that the construction continued to flow smoothly. The transformation of our home was remarkable, and was completely within the timeframe and budget originally established.”

“The remodel of our mid-century classic was half done when we changed contractors. There were mysteries as to how or what had been done under the first contractor, but the contractor who agreed to take on the challenge saved our project. Angi Brittain, President of The Eva Claire Corporation, served as the Project Manager and it was due to her high standards that the work was finally completed as a huge success. The additions to the original house had already been done, but the details were lacking. Ms. Brittain’s knowledge of the work involved by each of the subcontractors made for wonderful results. The subcontractors followed each other in a timely manner and she made sure the work met her standards, which also included leaving a clean site every evening. Her working relationship with the subs made for a pleasant work in progress and it showed in the smooth transition of one job to the next.

As the work progressed, my husband and I made changes to the original plans. Nothing seemed to faze Angi and she was extremely helpful in helping us make the right choices by recommending options that fit within our budget. The project, under Angi’s direction, went very smoothly, and was completely in a timely, organized fashion, with a high degree of quality control. I give The Eva Claire Corporation the highest recommendation to anyone looking for a contractor with high standards of work quality and ethics.”

“We contracted with The Eva Claire Corporation to help us design and build a recreational room in an unfinished space above our garage. While the construction team structurally reinforced the existing floor system to support the weight of the pool table planned for the room, the design team prepared several layouts based on our broad concepts for the space. The design team was sensitive to our budget and offered numerous “out of the box” ideas to help create the “rustic” look we desired, refinishing the existing plywood subfloor and installing faux timber-beam ceiling rafters. The Eva Claire Corporation’s highly skilled craftsmen built a customized shelving system with integral lighting to display my prized collection of over 500 beer bottles from all over the world! The design of this shelving system was coordinated to match the custom bar they built, complete with shelving for liquor, bar supplies, etc. The team was so focused on making sure that the design of the bar met with my approval, they built a miniature model for my review and feedback. We now have a fantastic recreation room and bar that has added to the square footage of our home and serves as the perfect space for parties! We were thrilled with the project and with the professionalism of the entire team. We will utilize the services of The Eva Claire Corporation anytime we are in need of home improvement work!”

“Since this was my first big home-remodeling project, I was somewhat nervous. However, everything progressed according to plan. The project began with a strict budget and remained on budget through completion. There were no surprises during the project, as The Eva Claire Corporation thoroughly evaluated the structure of our home and our home’s ability to adapt to the changes we wished to make. The construction crew was polite, thoughtful of our space, and maintained a clean work environment. They worked according to the schedule upon which we had agreed. Our project manager was very effective in her communication with us regarding every facet of the project. When we had any questions, we could reach her or leave messages which were immediately returned. We are planning a deck-remodeling project sometime in the New Year and we will definitely contract with The Eva Claire Corporation to complete this project. In an industry in which you are entrusting your home to someone, it is with total confidence that I would recommend The Eva Claire Corporation.”

- Katherine Pastorius

“Angi Brittain with Eva Claire Corporation is a true workhorse. Her pride and dedication to her line of work is unmatched. I witnessed Angi single handedly demo a huge wooden deck in less than an hour for the purpose of remodeling. I was very impressed."

“We are pleased to offer a very strong endorsement of Angi Brittain and the Eva Claire Corp. We started working with Angi several months ago when she came to our house for an introductory meeting. On budget and ahead of schedule, our family room renovation is finished, and we couldn’t be happier. Shown below are the items that were important to us and how Eva Claire performed against each of these items: 1. Design talent – Angi and her team took our simple renovation idea and turned it into something special. On her recommendation, we knocked down the wall between our kitchen and family room, creating a large open space….. Importantly, Angi also incorporated suggestions from magazine pictures that we liked into the final design. 2. Price – Eva Claire’s price was competitive with other contractors that we considered. There were no budget “surprises” during the project; the final price we paid was exactly the price we were quoted at the beginning of the project. 3. Subcontractors – Angi selected and managed all of the subcontractors. She made sure they were on time; she was onsite every day to follow-up on their work; and she ensured they treated our home with respect, making sure they cleaned up daily. 4. Quality of work – The work is terrific! The finished work exceeds our expectations; suggestions made by Angi and subs throughout the project got us to a better place. 5. Timeliness – At the beginning of the project Angi built a schedule that showed by day, by subcontractor, the work to be completed. She communicated all changes. She updated the schedule every week. The project was completed ahead of schedule. 6. Miscellaneous – Angi was available “24 – 7” to answer our questions and address any concerns. She responded quickly to emails, phone calls, and text messages. We also have a cat and a dog; we never worried about them with a house full of workers. We highly recommend the Eva Claire Corp. Angi and her team are professional, highly accountable, and a pleasure to work with. We plan to use them on our next home renovation project.”
