SnapADU did an awesome job building a 750 sqft ADU. The level of service and quality of work surpassed all my expectations. I’m so glad there are still companies who are focused on customer satisfaction. Thank you, to all from Snap who were involved in the building of the ADU for such a great experience!!!!Paul W. | ADU | Oceanside CA
Moore Construction remodeled my home a few years ago. Now during COVID, I have them back building an ADU in my back yard. I'm always impressed with their reliability and transparency. From Day 1, Mike was upfront with me about what to expect with the all-in costs and consistently follows through as promised.Margaret P. | ADU & Remodel | Oceanside CA
Your crew is amazing! I’m sure you appreciate them as much as I do. Thank you for doing what you can to get this kitchen done during all this (COVID-19) chaos. I’ll definitely be singing your company’s praises to everyone I know and am excited to start our ADU!Liz R. | ADU & Kitchen Remodel | Vista CA
I think you guys are great. You're just kind of a dream come true, really. When we were talking about doing this, it's really daunting thinking about trying to tie all these things together when you don't even know where to begin. So it's great that you guys put it all out there so clearly. You're very thorough. And I think you're really forthcoming about the reality of the undertaking. That's good, cause I want the full story.Mary R. | ADU | National City CA
I want to thank you for all this extra effort during the material selections process. I feel like you all are going above and beyond and I’m so happy I chose SnapADU. Today they poured the basement floor and it looks amazing.Zack R. | ADU | Oceanside CA
