“We decided to remodel our 30 year old master bathroom. After much research I relied on reviews and Buck’s website to make our choice. Lucky for us it turned out to be an exceptionally organized, tidy, and professional experience. You can expect Buck to meticulously work through all of your plans. I would highly recommend taking his advice on the quality of your selections. You will know every step of the way what will come next, when you need to pick things out, and who will be coming to your home. There is never a big lag in the work. Everyone who works with him were polite, neat, knowledgeable, and talented. If anyone is new you can see them being taught by the experienced craftsman. I have nothing but respect and appreciation for the carpenters, plumbers, drywall guy, painter, tile guys, electrician, and the glass shower installers. Buck’s project manager, David, was exceptional. He kept everything going smoothly from beginning to end. Can’t wait for our next remodel.”

“I highly recommend Buck the Builder. I wanted to replace the vent fan insert over my cooktop, but needed significant modifications to the vent hood cabinetry. I contacted Buck who put me in touch with David Oddo, his project manager. David was outstanding to work with. He spent 2 hours talking to me about my needs and taking measurements. He modified the existing hood to accept the new vent fan insert, then made a custom casing around the bottom to spruce it up. Also had a custom panel designed for the front allowing easy access in case I need to service or replace the fan later on. He also helped me install a new countertop range. All in all, David went above and beyond on the project. Everything works and looks great now. I appreciate Buck and David making time for this small project, and will certainly call on them again when I want to remodel other areas of my home.”

“Buck and his team completed a full kitchen remodel for us this past summer. We could not be happier with how it turned out! All of the sub contractors were professional and you could tell they took pride in their work. The new PSA process meant we knew exactly what the cost of the remodel was going to be before we got started. We were able to pick all the finishes within our budget without being surprised by the cost of an upgrade once things got started. Our project manager, Daniel, communicated excellently about the status of the project and he worked hard to keep us on schedule. We would highly recommend Buck the Builder for any remodel project!

“I can’t say enough about our experience with Buck. His craftsmanship is superb but his character is also exceptional. He is honest, responsive, and incredibly easy to work with. We will not go to anyone else for our projects or contracting needs.

We hired him for a project that was a little outside the box and although it took a little longer than planned, we are thrilled with the outcome. Our boys will certainly enjoy their custom “Buck-Beds” for years. Thank you Buck (and team)!

(Also, for the record – I did not know him prior to this project. I was referred from another carpenter recommended to me who wasn’t comfortable with the job.)”

“Buck did our kitchen remodel, bathroom, and garage conversion. He put thought into every detail and made our remodel look straight out of a magazine. He and his team were professional and amazing to work with! We are still in love with our remodel! Highly recommend!

“We would definitely recommend this company to anyone looking to remodel their home. They finished our attic and it looks amazing. They are very professional and finished the job in a timely manner. You will not be disappointed if you hire them to do the job.”

Allison, attic conversion, College Station, TX

“We hired Buck to come take down some walls, install an arch and move a large cabinet. Buck was very easy to work with. He has a great first impression as he asks a lot a questions about what you want and what you are expecting. His bid was clear and broken down into each individual job. As far as his work, he came every day and was very professional, he answered all of my questions and helped walk me through the changes I wanted from what was originally discussed. I had asked him to install a column for the new arch and he drew out for me how it would look so I was able to change it to fit my particular style. While Buck is a very good carpenter and a very friendly guy to be around, one of the things I appreciated most was that he was very patient with me as I made changes to what exactly I wanted. In the end I got an amazing new room, column and cabinets that look great and that were done quickly. I will definitely be asking Buck to do more work for me in the future, as hiring him was a smart choice.”

“If you are looking for a carpenter that is a reliable communicator, cares and has a true passion for his work, this is your guy. He lays out the costs of his jobs very well. His subcontractors are professional and reliable as well. Buck remodeled my kitchen and basically executed my vision perfectly.”

“​As an out of town landlord, it was only because of Buck the Builder and his team (we worked with Chester) that we were able to smoothly complete a unanticipated flood repair/minor renovation in a tenant occupied rental property and STILL have everyone involved happy at the end. Thanks again y’all! They are extremely professional and organized; most importantly the work done was great – I wouldn’t change a thing and will always call them first for any future projects. Our project: A water pipe broke through a wall, causing typical damage to flooring, drywall & baseboards, but it was the right opportunity to make minor updates to the property since my tenant was amiable to an extended timeline if it meant upgrades. We had multiple quotes and to be honest, they were not the lowest, but I would still prefer to use them again because they are worth it. BTB/Chester was able to answer questions with expertise and instill confidence about using them despite the fact I was not able to be on site. I wanted quality work done in a timely and professional manner for the sake of my very understanding tenants, and Buck the Builder/Chester went above and beyond my expectations. BTB gave me an anticipated timeline and budget and when there were changes, I was informed ahead of time and it was never a surprise b/c Chester took the time to explain and discuss options. Chester was great about sending progress photos to me and was even willing to Face-time from the stone yard so I could select the new kitchen counter top since I wasn’t able to be there! He understood I needed high value product selections and suggested I consider remnant pieces from the stone yard to stay in budget while installing a higher quality material, perfect solution. In addition to proactively communicating with me, I appreciated Chester was willing to take the lead in coordinating access and relevant details directly with my tenant so I wasn’t forced to be the middleman. Having done other renovation projects, it’s rare to find a quality craftsman/contractor that is also responsive, professional, communicates well – and most importantly actually follows through to met expectations. ​”

“It was finally time to rip the entire kitchen out and start over – 1950 was a very long time ago and there were big problems with basic functionality. The sink area was a disaster and the cabinets were cheaply made. Buck made the process as head-ache free as possible, had great vision to help us get where we needed to go, stayed in touch, and built the heck out of the new cabinets. Couldn’t be happier. I’ve worked with a ton of contractors and I’m happy whenever I can find an outfit that builds quality into the project at every turn. I think these cabinets will last another 70 years – when it will be someone else’s problem! His entire team was great: warm and professional.”

“We couldn’t have hoped for a more positive remodel experience! Buck and his team did an amazing job on our master bathroom remodel. He was flexible with our schedule, enthusiastic about our ideas, answered all of our questions, and provided thoughtful suggestions, all while being cognizant of our budget. Respectful, honest, clear on communication, and committed to quality – you couldn’t ask for a better contractor!”

Brittany, master bathroom remodel, College Station, TX

“I have used Buck the Builder’s services previously on a bedroom and bathroom remodel and was extremely impressed with Buck’s work, so it was a no brainer to go with what you know, again!
First off, Buck’s approach is very professional. He’s extremely organized from beginning to end and provides you with a statement of work, including a very detailed what, when, where and budget and he sticks right with it all the way through. With my first remodel, he came in just under budget and with the second remodel, which was much more involved (took a screened in porch and turned it into 300 sq. ft. of beautiful, usable space). It’s now a lovely sitting/reading room, with lots of open light and space. The flooring was treated concrete and along with the brick that was part of the porch, turned into a unique and clean design that added a whole different texture to the inside of my house. He has great vision and can help your dream become a reality. He will be doing more work for me in the future. Buck rates way better than 5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟!”

“Buck (with Chester as our lead guy) did a wonderful job coordinating our master bath remodel. They replaced our retro cultured marble tub and shower with a stand alone tub and beautiful tile shower. Wallpaper removal, new flooring, counter tops, fixtures, and lighting brought us into this century. They worked around our schedule and finished on time. We would definitely recommend!”

Lanie, master bathroom remodel, College Station, TX

“Buck and his team did some remodeling in our master bath. They converted one side of our bathroom from a leaky shower surround and junky bath tub into a huge tiled walk in shower for us. It turned out Amazing and we still can’t believe the gorgeous shower is in our house!”

LaNae, master shower remodel, Bryan, TX

“We had a unanimously positive experience working with Buck. He was timely, thoughtful, and careful in both planning and work. He worked with us on both price and design, kept in touch through all stages of the process, and ultimately built a beautiful product. We look forward to working with Buck again!”

“I am very pleased with the bathroom remodel done by Buck the Builder. He and his team were professional, courteous, detail-oriented, and offered valuable suggestions throughout the entire process. There were no surprises about costs since Buck goes over those in great detail and the project was completed in a timely manner. I will definitely use Buck for my next project – a complete kitchen remodel – and I highly recommend him for any home improvement project.”

Ellen, bathroom remodel, Bryan, TX

“Buck is very professional, does high quality work, and is pleasant to work with. He is a proactive communicator who reached out to me frequently to provide me with progress reports. Also, he is easy to get in touch with should you have any questions throughout the job. I’ve had Buck install exterior doors for me and remodel my entire bathroom. Additionally, he has done work for a few friends of mine and we have all been impressed by his work. I’d recommend Buck to anyone!”

“​I had not ​personally ​seen ​B​uck​’​s work but knew of his character and his quote was very reasonable. We completed a full kitchen and master bath remodel as well as ​flooring in part of the house​. While ​NO​ remodel is without bumps, it was always a pleasure to work with ​B​uck. He is very responsive (returning calls within the hour) and was ​excellent​ at problem solving without breaking the bank!​ ​”
