After an extensive selection process to completely rebuild our Morningside home, we chose Ron Lester and the Georgia Contractor Group and could not be happier with our decision and the final result. Our expectations were exceeded on quality, creativity, craftsmanship, flexibility, customer service, speed, overall knowledge of every aspect of construction technique and materials, and cost. From the very start until job completion and beyond, Ron was obsessed with our satisfaction. Ron architected and designed the entire project, resulting in a design that met all of our desires, and his vast experience and interactive approach led to creative touches and features that we had not even considered. Since Ron does the design work himself, no limit was placed on the number of no-cost design updates we could make and to our delight everything we wanted was accommodated. We couldn't be more thrilled with our finished product and have received nothing but the highest praise on the job from everyone that has seen it, construction pros included. The construction and finishes are all rock solid, the few minor glitches we found post-completion were immediately handled, and the value we received is extremely satisfying. Ron's honesty and integrity are beyond question, and his commitment and focus on an on-time, on-budget job are fierce. You can't go wrong with Ron and Georgia Contractor Group.
Complete rebuild our Morningside home - 4600 sq. ft., 5 BR, 4.5 BA, two master suites, yoga room, sleeping porch, screened porch, deck.

Our remodel was almost a complete update to the inside of a house. We expanded and put in a brand new kitchen, put in new beams to strengthen the house structurally (and level the floors), updated 3 bathrooms, put in new electrical wiring, heating, cooling, new floors. Ron and his team did a fabulous job. They were meticulous in their attention to detail, and these details had a huge impact on the final finished project. Ron kept us informed every step of the way, and was patient through all of the layout changes. We would readily work with Ron and his team again.
The home was originally built in 1930, with an upstairs wing added in the 1980's. The project was to fix several structural elements in the home (new beams, removing the clutter of supporting columns in the basement to make it more usable, leveling the floor), moving the heating and cooling equipment to one end of the house (vs. the middle of the basement), moving a wall to expand the kitchen, putting in a brand new kitchen, new bathrooms, new closets.

Georgia Contractor Group is by far the absolute best in what they do. We hired them in 2015 to finish our basement and called them back to finish the exterior porch & patio in 2016. Without hesitation I would highly recommend them. Their work is top quality. They only bring in the contractors they can trust to provide excellent service and workmanship to your home. If you want to be happy when your project is completed this is the company you want to hire.

We are delighted with the work Ron and his team did in our home. From the design through completion, they were meticulous and professional. The finished product far exceeded our expectations. They turned our 1981 home into a beautiful, updated space.

If you are still researching and trying to decide who is the best Contractor for your project, look no more, I have done all the work for you. I have spent numerous months and countless hours researching, reading reviews and meeting with several different contractors. We finally landed on GCG. GCG has an outstanding reputation and an amazing crew. We are extremely happy with the final results. I am completely "IN LOVE" with our home again. I highly recommend Georgia Contractor Group for your next project. We are planning on using them again very soon on our rental property. Thank you again for all the hard work in making my dreams come true. L.B.

Our project would easily qualify as a very tough project not only in terms of building execution and deadlines, but also because we are picky homeowners. We moved into the house, 6 months after breaking ground. This was possible only because of the experience, the attentiveness, the follow through, and the high engagement that GCG brought to the project. It was a tough project because of the conditions under which the house had to be built (extremely tight erosion tolerances, backing to a creek, location on a main road, etc). When you build a home, decisions are taken and re-taken constantly. There are a lot of opportunities for the relationship with the builder to go awry. Even under these challenging circumstances and tight deadlines, we are happy to say that Ron Lester is a very good friend of ours. They made what was an extremely challenging project seem very easy. Even months after the building was done, Ron would call to ensure we were happy. We would gladly welcome an opportunity to share our experience with any new and prospective clients of GCG.
GCG as our General Contractor, took our land lot and handed us back a finished home. They did all the necessary surveying, permitting, land development work, building, and landscaping. In addition they also gave us warranty on our home. The land lot backs to a creek and is located on a main road, thus making the site conditions challenging. We had to import a lot of fill dirt. Inspire of all these challenges and tight deadlines, GCG got the project done in the estimated 6 months.

My husband and I hired Ron and his team to take down multiple load bearing walls and transform our kitchen/living/dining area. They completed the project in record time so we could have the space back for the holidays, were very professional, responsive, courteous and a joy to work with! Their work is top notch and truly catered to your families needs. I highly recommend Georgia Contractor Group to anyone needing a major renovation or new home built.

We recently decided to finish our basement and after careful analysis, selected the Georgia Contractor Group and Ron Lester. We could not be happier with our decision and we are thrilled with our new basement. We worked with Ron on a previous project so we already knew that he does excellent work (our expectations were already high) but Ron and his team exceeded our expectations. The entire process was wonderful and easy from start to finish. Ron's attention to detail, expertise and approach to the project made the entire experience completely stress free. Ron met with us frequently to keep us updated on the progress of our project, answer all of our questions and let us know of any upcoming selections/decisions that we needed to be thinking about. We we are truly grateful for Ron and his team and recommend him highly.

Ron built an addition for us at our home in Baker's Farm. He was wonderful in that he delivered exactly what he promised on budget and on time. I would recommend him to anyone because he will exceed your expectations, especially because of his attention to detail!

Ron and Mark are truly the upper eschelon of the residential building industry. If you want something done right the FIRST time, they are your team! They truly take pride in all that they do. I have worked with a lot of builders, and I trust them so much that my last home was built by them and most likely my next home will also be built by them. They are your go-to team when it comes to quality work!

Mark Fulmer and the Georgia Contractor Group did an outstanding job on the remodeling of 2/3 of our home. We suffered a broken water pipe when we were out of the country and the ensuing damage over a two week period essentially destroyed one and a half floors. Mark and his team were extremely professional and took painstaking effort to ensure our home was not only restored but beautifully updated. Mark is also the most prompt contractor we have ever experienced. If he was due to arrive at 9AM, at 8:55AM the doorbell would ring. As we were away much of the time at our beach home in NC, we had to trust and defer to Mark a great deal. We were never disappointed with his judgement and decisions. In fact, we had approved samples of the Calcutta marble used in our master bath. Once the tile arrived, he laid out several pieces and then rejected it as it was not up to his standards and he knew that we would have been unhappy with the result. The final result is evident in the extraordinary finish in our bathroom. He made sure that the veining in the marble was laid out to showcase its beauty and not just applied without thought to the final effect. We never felt that he took a shortcut or compromised on We couldn't be more pleased and wholeheartedly recommend Mark. We now consider him a friend as well as an outstanding professional.

I worked with Georgia Contractor Group (GCG), specifically Ron Lester and Scott Taylor, on a complete remodel of a 1960s home in the Atlanta suburbs. It was my first project in Atlanta, after relocating my design business from Chicago. I interviewed three contractors before recommending GCG to my clients. We definitely picked the right group. They have an incredible work ethic and pay close attention to the details. Their team is experienced, and their subs are well vetted. Ron was particularly good at keeping lines of communication open during construction. Most importantly they were creative thinkers when unforeseen issues impacted my design plans and threatened the budget. Instead of stopping work, they helped us come up with solutions -- an invaluable quality in a contractor. I highly recommend Georgia Contractor Group.

Georgia Contractor Group built a custom home for us and we could not be happier with the outcome. Ron coordinated every aspect starting with the clearing of the lot and placement of the home. His attention to detail and his knowledge of building are as good as it gets. He kept me informed during the construction and gave me a timeline for completion of each step. I highly recommend Ron and expect to use him again on future building projects!

Ron Lester of The Georgia Contractor Group was by far the best contractor we've ever dealt with. We had a wonderful experience with Ron from our first meeting until our screened porch project was complete. Ron went above and beyond to make our project perfect. Ron's vision and his crew's workmanship exceeded our expectations. Ron is very responsive, fair, easy to work with, and has a high standard of excellence. Ron had his crew clean up the project area at the end of every work day, was very attentive to details, and kept us up to date with the work schedule. Ron met with us almost every evening to discuss the work progress, what to expect for the next couple of days, and to go over all the details of the project. He was very accommodating with changes, offering well thought out solutions for challenging situations. The final project exceeded our expectations and we now have a new "go to" contractor as well as a great new friend. Without reservation we recommend Ron Lester and The Georgia Contractor Group for any custom home or remodeling project.

We cannot say enough good things about Georgia Contractor Group. We were doing a major renovation on a traditional 70s era house, including a small addition, total kitchen & master bath gut, secondary bathroom updating, exterior work, hardwood floors throughout, etc. All while living off-site with 2 very small children. Ron & Mark did a great job of quickly and accurately bidding the job so that we would begin asap. We interviewed 4 contractors, including Georgia Contractor Group, and upon interviewing them and speaking with past clients we had no doubt they were the right team. Their strengths were: communicating often & well with us, making sure their workers did what they were supposed to be doing, keeping a clean job site, problem solving, paying attention to detail, prioritizing quality of work over speediness. They were easy to work with, trustworthy, good listeners and fair business men. I think it is rare to come out of a 4 month renovation and have positive feelings towards your contractor; we are so glad we worked with Ron and his team. They are top notch!
