I hired Chris after getting 2 other estimates. I liked his confident attitude immediately. My home is around 12 years old and the master bath needed a facelift. Chris knew exactly where I should apply the budget to get the most "band for my buck". His proposal and contract were very detailed. He understood I didn't want to go above my budget and worked with me. Chris is a "Quality" contractor and his people do very detailed quality work. They are all pleasant to work with and very professional. The project schedule was extended a bit, but he finished on the absolute end date. His schedule was tight to begin with, so I was not upset at all. The end product exceeded my expectations. I am a very detailed person, so I did get very involved in the design and material acquisition. The best part of working with Chris was his immediate response to what ever issue I was having. We did have a few issues along the way, but what project doesn't? I never felt at risk for having the issue ignored. A great experience overall!

Tracy I just wanted to say thank you first of all for selecting us to do your project. It warms my heart to have a satisfied client. It was really great working with you and your master bath is truly fabulous. Thank you again for the opportunity and we wish you the best. C. Riley
Initially we met Christopher after meeting with several other contractors that we really didn't feel a connection with. From the start we were a little skeptical because we talked for over two hours and he took no notes or did any measuring. He gave us a list of inventory we needed to purchase and to our surprise is was more detailed list than the other contractor who spent 30 min or so measuring every little thing so we knew he was our guy. He sent over the next day a 4 page proposal with all of the details we talked about and few options we didn't . Our master bath project was underway. Everybody that came into our home was very pleasant professional cleaned up everyday and worked long hours. Victor the project manager was excellent in his communication skills and set our minds at ease. Our house was built in 1930 but our new bath is better than any 5 star in Vegas or the Caribbean , we know because we love to travel. We are beyond happy with what was done and will use Christopher again and have already referred him to a friend.

Jessica wow thanks so much for this awesome review. Your bath is one truly unique space. We were delighted to work with you and Ryan you guys are great. Thanks for the referral again and please let us know when you are ready for the other work that we discussed. C. Riley
We hired Christopher to totally renovate our 1950's home in Buckhead. Christopher had great ideas and seemed to be very confident as to what could be done. Our renovation included three baths a kitchen hardwoods and detailed millwork. The cabinets he designed and fabricated were very high quality exactly what we wanted. The baths came out very lovely and the tile work is top knotch. We loved that Christopher was responsive and had great communication. The project did extend past our completion date but the guys did put in long hours to get us completed. Over we are happy with the service and the end product. I would use their services again.

Hi Betty how are you ! You are truly wonderful and such a sweet person and you were a gift to work with. Thank you thank you thank you for the opportunity. Client like you make me love more and more what I do for a living. I'm truly blessed. C. Riley
I live in a 1960's house with a "hollywood" shower, which means the tub and shower are shared between two bathrooms. Both sets of doors were leaking through the tracks and needed to be replaced. We were also concerned about whether the tub had "settled", making this problem worse. After multiple calls (6), we stopped trying to engage Chris for this work. To be fair, we did make an appointment with him, but had to cancel when my husband had a conflict. Four calls later, however, we had no success in getting Chris to respond to us to reschedule and gave up. We will be gutting these two bathrooms in the next few years, and having an actual water-tight shower is a stop-gap. We won't be considering CER Custom Renovations for the job based on this experience.

We are so sorry for the miscommunication in regards to coming out to your home. From what I remember you cancelled the appointment the day of. It is very important that we all respect each others time. We get an tremendous amount of phone calls per week with new clients looking for services. Its not our intention t not meet with clients or be non responsive. We will be more than happy to reschedule for someone to come out and provide you with a free estimate. We do look forward to hearing from you and working with you. C. Riley
We hired CER to remodel the bathroom in our new house. From the beginning we were extremely excited. Chris made it sound like this was going to be exactly the room we were looking for. He promised the entire job would be done in 2 weeks (so that it would be completed the day before we moved in). He then began to be very hard to get a hold of. His contractors wouldn't show up on time and would work until all hours. What was supposed to be a 2 week project turned into a 6 week project with him guaranteeing us literally every time we talked to him that it was just about over and it wouldn't last more than 1-2 days more. We had told him what our budget was and every place he told us to go to was so overpriced it was ridiculous. For example, the place he sent us for fixtures didn't have anything less than $150 per fixture. He also underestimated the amount of tile we would need 3 times; causing us to have to go back several times and spend 3x the amount of money we had budgeted for tile. I would not recommend CER renovations at all. We are finding more issues everyday as we live with their work. They did not patch a part of the drywall and the toilet paper holder is falling out of the wall. They "redid" the plumbing but used all used fixtures that we had to replace 6 months later by hiring another contractor. They also put the hot and cold plumbing back in backwards and we are having to go behind the shower to find out what is causing the water pressure issues.

I'm a little puzzled at this review. We finished this project around spring of 2012 and yet this is the first time I'm hearing of any issues that you guys were having. Like with anything I think that it's only fair to allow any company or individual to correct any mistakes that had happened. I will admit that your project did take longer to get done than promised due to some unforeseen circumstances on our part, however we did finish it through to completion. I also want to make sure we are fair in regards the statement you made about fixtures. We only recommend showrooms we have relationships with and they usually come at a much higher standard than the big box stores. If the price of fixtures were to much there you were not obligated to purchase through them. I informed you that if you ordered cheap fixtures that you would get what you paid for. So I'm not really understanding how we are responsible for the quality of fixtures that you ordered yourself online against our recommendation. If there was a problem with the install we would have gladly stood by our work to correct any issues. We do not have the reputation for doing any substandard work. This is the first review out of 93 stating this. We always encourage open communication and try extremely hard to please all over our clients. We are truly sorry to have caused any inconvenience to you and your family. Again we will be more than happy to fix any issues you have had with your bathroom. C. Riley
We searched hard for a contractor to redo a bad 70's basement room. There are many companies that finish basements starting from an empty shell, but few that can handle the complexities of older houses and deal with prior work. Chris immediately had creative ideas on how to maximize our space and solve problems associated with a 65-year old house. Our finished product is a beautiful MIL suite + laundry room that is nicer than our living space upstairs! The quality of the craftsmanship was impeccable. CER was not the lowest bid we got but you get what you pay for.

Hi Mellissa thanks so much for the wonderful review. Your home was truly a tricky one and what you guys were looking to do required some risk and great skill. Thanks again for allowing me to bring that family by to see your space things worked out well and they hired us after all the great things you said about us and they were impressed with the work. Congrats again on the new baby and please send Charlie my best wishes. Thanks again!
CER Is Great! I didn't know if they would take my case as it was small compared to the major renovations they usually do but I called anyway. I told them about my undermount sink detaching from the marble and asked if they would fix it and the plumbing too. Before calling CER, I called a plumber but they couldn't secure the sink and told me to call a granite company. I called the granite company but they weren't licensed to touch the plumbing so then I called CER. I wanted both jobs done and wanted to pay one company to do it and not have to deal with a separate plumber and marble guy. CER arrived the day after my call. Fixed my plumbing and secured my sink to the marble! I would use them again with no hesitation! The price was right too!

Thanks star I'm glad we can help. I felt your pain in how frustrating things could be looking for a service contractor , glad we could help.
My partner and I met with Christopher oct 2012. We wanted our Kitchen , Master Bath and Guest Bath renovated. From the first time Christopher met with us his presentation and professionalism was out standing. He explained to us what the process was and was very upfront on what to expect. He designed our space beautifully. We were very excited to start our project. The day of start he introduced us to John one of his project managers. John was excellent in his duties and all the guys he managed did just as he asked. We did have a few issues along the way but needless to say they were resolved rather quickly. Christopher promised our project would be done before Christmas and on Xmas eve the guys were here until 12am cleaning and putting on final details. We had a house full of friends and family that really were impressed with the work. There were a few things we found after the guys left and as expected John came right out and took care of it. We are extremely happy with our project and thank you and your team for doing a great job. Susan N.

Hi Susan such a wonderful review. It truly was my pleasure working with you and your family. I'm happy everything was to your satisfactory and thanks again for allowing us to service you and your family.
I called CER to remodel 3 baths including our master. After waiting almost 3 years to have it done , we could no longer wait. I called Chris to come out and from different encounters in the past we were ready to deal with some drama , but much to my surprise he gave us a fair price that we accepted and work started with the master and kids bath. His crews were great , friendly , and most important showed up every day to actually work. Our baths came out great he even got our fixtures for us at a discount. Chris and Victor are great and has great communication skills. I am really happy to had used his services. Way to go Chris! ..

Narja thanks so much for the great feedback. We were very proud to take on your project and we trully thank you for your business. Please dont hesitate to call us for anything else. C. Riley
Chris E. Riley lives up to his kudzu reputation! Chris and his crew completed a basement renovation for us, and the before and after pictures speak for themselves. The job included a variety of work including raising the ceilings, kitchen upgrade, bathroom gut, flooring, etc. I look forward to working with CER again in the future!

Hey Chris is was a long process I know. Your home was extremly difficult being it was so old. As I stated the first day when I met you that it was going to be a fight and we won. Gld you like the work we did and thanks again for allowing us in your home. C.Riley
We currently added a 800sqft addition to our 1910 Historic Victorian home in Candler Park. After meeting Chris we were very excited. When he walked in he noticed certain details that we were not even aware of and was really knowledgable about Pre War homes. He presented us with plans and a proposal to submit to the historic society after a few changes they were approved and he scheduled us to begin work. Im happy to say 9 months later the family room and kitchen looks incredible. The custom cabinets and millwork is A+ not to mention the beautiful hardwood floors. We had an official house warming and everyone was very impressed with the quality. Chris even stopped by with Dylan his daughter Saturday to bring us a great bottle of wine. We are very very pleased with the work that was done and look forward to our next project, the master bath. Thank you again for sticking in there with us to complete our projct.

Hi Mrs Yamin .. Sorry for taking so long to respond. Your home was one of my favorite projects of all times. As you know I love old homes. I know it took a little long than expected but as I told you during one of our long conversations that i would rather take my time and do it right verses rushing and not having a good product at the end. Say hello to Mr. Yamin for me and thank you thank you thank you again for allowing me to do what I love to do. C.Riley
We renovated our basement, kitchen, and two baths. From the the initial phone call Mr. Riley answered and was very detailed in the questions that were answered. We met him a few days later. Much to our surprise he was professionally dressed and clean cut. We met with a few others who didnt meet the part. After a few price adjustments we agreed to start the work. He was ontime everyday and his crews worked long hours and were very nice. His project manager was very knowledgeable and easy to work with. Mr Riley did a great job communicating via text , email and phone conversations , he would always get back to us promptly. Our projects are of the highest quality. We had family over for the holidays and all were trully impressed. I would recommend CER in the future and will provide him a great reference.

Thanks Paul its always our pleasure to provide the highest quality of Customer Service and Workmanship. We really appreciate your business. Thanks again for the great review.
I utilized Christopher Riley and his team for a bathroom and kitchen renovation in my secondary home in Buckhead, and boy am I happier than ever with the results :-D Christopher and his team are punctual, meticulous, and pay extreme attention to detail. This team isn't only a construction team but also an interior design team... In addition, I can't believe how economical they are compared to their exceptional expertise. Why pay separately for a contractor and interior design team for you kitchen and bath when you can pay for one team that does it all? In this economy, I am looking to make every cent count and definitely did when I found CER Custom Renovations. I will definitely be calling them again!!

CER Custom Renovations and especially the owner Christopher has far exceeded my expectations! Back in 2009 I contacted Christopher for an estimate on an addition after seeing his work at a friend's home. He patiently walked me through the process and offered a few suggestions which were incorporated into the final plan. His team completed the job on time, within budget, and was exactly what I hoped for and more. I recently ran into Christopher and mentioned to him that the sink which was added during the addition began leaking . To my surprise a member of his team came to inspect the issue and within a week the problem was solved. It's so refreshing to see someone stand behind their work. Thank you!!

Thank Michelle for your kind words. It was great seeing you and your family. Im happy that you are satisfied with the work that was done. We try very very hard to maintain a high standard. Pease let us know if there is anything else we can do.
Chris and Oleg I just want to start off saying job well done. When we met with you we were worried that we would not be ready by Thanksgiving , but you eased out minds the first week of work. You guys worked very long hours , we left for work and returned home and you were still there working hard well into the night. The Kitchen and Baths are AMAZING!!! We used them this morning for the first time and really enjoyed them. You guys rock! Thank you again !
