Client Testimonials

“Thank you very much, Jim (company owner), for all your efforts with the “BEDROCK” house.  It was a difficult project to say the least!  The end result warrants the wait.  It’s a most attractive house.  Kari and I appreciate the hard work Forest Construction put into bringing the project to fruition.  Again, many thanks!”

Sincerely, -Dick Clark

“Forest Construction and Showcase working together is in my opinion essential to the job. The communication that flows between the two keeps the project flowing and on schedule. One of the things I was most impressed with was the spreadsheet outlining the day to day activity of he job. (Which subcontractor would be here, for how long, which days, etc). I know there are many behind the scenes players involved in a project, and I wish I could thank all of them as well. But from my standpoint, the people that were absolutely essential in helping me understand and live through the process of this remodel were Steve love and Charlie Rutledge. I can’t commend them enough for their patience and understanding. As for strengths and weaknesses of Showcase, I would say your strengths lie in your reputation and quality of personnel.” …”As for recommendations to friends, I believe we’ve already sent you several. But we are more than happy to recommend both Showcase and Forest to anyone needing a quality and ethical company to do construction work. Please feel free to use us as a reference. Thank you for caring about the opinions of your customers.

Sincerely, Linda Abbott” (Thousand Oaks)

“Strengths- Communication and prompt response to questions/concerns, courtesy and attention to detail. Only concerns with subcontractor workers were dealt with by Forest supervisor promptly. I will refer anyone I run across in need of services.”

-Laurie Adams, Thousand Oaks

-Jean Kramer, Thousand Oaks

“Showcase’s greatest strength is Tony with Forest Construction. Tony has great communication skills, [and] great interpersonal skills. He was honest and he knew the state of our project at all times. He is also an excellent project manager. He was totally on top of all aspects and it was a huge relief not to have to worry about permits.

I was 8 months pregnant when the job began. The baby was born a month early so I had to bring my newborn home to a house completely under construction. Tony was very sensitive to this and made sure all the workers were too. They kept the mess to an absolute minimum and they kept on schedule. I just want to extend my tremendous gratitude to Tony and his staff for really going above and beyond to make the best of our situation and deliver an awesome end result!!!”

-Brady Naugle (Thousand Oaks)

“Scott West was an absolute pleasure to work with. There was never a doubt in my mind that this project wasn’t a top priority and we always felt that we were in good hands. I also felt that the subcontractors were above average. But Scott was the strength.” “Overall it was a very positive experience.”

“I rate Showcase and Forest as the Best of the Best.  I would return to you for future work and recommend you to anyone contemplating a new construction/remodel.”

– Paul & Jenny Christensen

“I 100% recommend this company if you don’t want to have the day to day hassles of home renovation. Ernesto was great at coming up with a plan and listening to what I wanted. He also had much better ideas than I did. I trust him completely. The relationship with the builder is the real advantage. You don’t have to make multiple phone calls. The work is superior and people are great. It ends up being a little more expensive-but so worth it. I know that I will get great customer service (if I ever need it) forever. ”

-Ann McClung

Designer Ernesto and Construction Manager Steve did a fabulous job from beginning to end on our master bedroom and bath remodel in 2010. The work progressed very professionally. We were always kept advised as to what would be happening and when. Everyone sent to our home was so nice and considerate of us and our home. The electricians and plumbers, tile and cabinet workers and every other building trade showed up when they said they would and did a great job. And when we called, they responded.”

-George & Debra Stephan

“I found the most impressive strengths were Charlie Rutledge’s ability to design and space plan all of the elements in my kitchen from the size and placement of the cabinetry and the angle of new walls, right down to the smallest decorative finish detail…. with everything coming together with precision.  The masterful scheduling and coordinating of the subcontractors and tradesmen displayed by Steve Love was a joy to experience.  This allowed for fast and efficient completion of the work…. NO DELAYS!”   As for any weaknesses, I would have to give that some serious thought, none come to mind!”

-Lola Stenning
