Ovi and his guys built a roof deck with a pergola for me. The finished project turned out great. Ovi was responsive and flexible and easy to work with. The construction only took 3 days from start to finish which was far faster than any other estimate we received. I would certainly recommend him to anybody doing a similar project.

Ovi and his team are professional, timely and reliable. Ovi himself is a stand-up guy. He's truly the kind of business owner you'd want to do business with - he's honest, fair and knowledgeable. 4th Generation Construction was not the cheapest, but the middle of the 3 estimates we received. The estimate was fair and we felt most comfortable with the quality of product and service we would receive. We absolutely made the right move. We did 3 deck areas in our condo association: The roof deck, garage deck, and front deck. The job was done very quickly, within a week and the team was very trustworthy and hard-working. We would absolutely work with Ovi and the team again.

I called and spoke with a guy (Obi or Ovi?) about a apartment building that I have. I felt chastised from the beginning of the phone call and honestly the guy rubbed me the wrong way. He didn't even want to come out and do a estimate. I mentioned to him that I needed reconstruction on the inside of one of my units. I said I needed it completely redone..... he goes on telling me what completely redone means.... trying to school me. So I proceed to telling him I don't need electrical or plumbing but I need the entire inside redone. (drywall, flooring, paint, carpet) and if I could get someone to come out and do a estimate. He clearly didn't want to come out.... saying that it's a process and this and that..... and AGAIN he begins to tell me how I should be explaining myself. I hung up in frustration because I wasted 5 minutes listening to this guy tell me how I should explain things to him, instead of booking an appointment with me for this project. If you want to be lectured on the phone because this guy is too lazy to come out and do an estimate.... then this is the place for you.
Too bad because I have phases of what I wanted done which included remodeling done in all the other units. This was just phase 1....and my budget was 100k.... cash.
I don't know if this was the owner but he just lost this company a ton of money.

Ovi and his crew do amazing work. They came out quickly when I needed some emergency work done. They worked with my other contractor and organized the timing. They worked to code and made sure that things that other contractors left incorrectly done (I purchased the house this way) were fixed and to code. The dormer is unbelievable and perfect. It has been in place for 3+ months and no leaks, perfectly done and works with the aesthetics of the home. I could not be happier.

Long story short:
Us: Ovi, I don't want to have to maintain this thing
Ovi: Sure, you want composite then. The base is still made of wood though.
Us: ...we don't want to have to maintain anything
Ovi: Ok! We can cover the base with more composite to protect the wood.
We have an old house so I've dealt with a LOT of contractors over the years. Ovi has been one of the easiest projects I've ever had to deal with. He came over to check out the backyard. We told him exactly what we wanted (I already designed the look) and he gave us the options and estimate. They were done in less than a week!
We chose composite because we're not good at maintaining things. We told Ovi we also wanted some storage under the deck so he made us a nifty little door. He completely enclosed it because we don't like the look of lattice and we wanted privacy for the things we planned on storing. Everything turned out great. We're very happy with the outcome.
