Portis remodeled our kitchen, removed the wall between the kitchen and family room and replaced our 40 year old deck with a beautiful covered porch. They are extremely nice, honest and hardworking people. Sam is very focused on doing things right and making the homeowner happy. We love the quality of the finished product and will definitely use them for our next remodel.

We are very pleased with our kitchen remodeling. The Portis' are nice, honest, ethical, dependable. Their in-house designer is very talented, helpful, and budget conscientious. We will definately consider Portis Buidling & Interiors when doing other home renovation projects. We do not hesitate to recommend them to our friends and neighbors.

When we decided to gut all 3 bathrooms in our 37 year old house, we interviewed multiple contractors and selected Portis Building & Interiors. Some of the deciding factors were the great design work prepared by Desiree, Sam and Molly, as well as the detailed estimate provided before we were required to sign a contract. Desiree was wonderful to work with on the design side. She presented wonderful alternatives and we were able to get a high-end look on a moderate budget. The workmen were very careful and cleaned up at the end of each day. Their attention to detail was incredible. The finished product is wonderful and we are enjoying everything about our new bathrooms.

I tried to hire Portis for some residential renovations, but ultimately decided not to hire the firm. So this review is more about pre-construction matters than actual construction quality or performance. 1. The construction agreement that Portis presented was one-sided and many of the provisions favored the builder over the homeowner, unnecessarily so (eg, no lien waivers). 2. Portis asked for and received $2400 for pre construction design services. I ultimately did not hire this firm, but was only refunded $380. Now, in theory, Portis was entitled to retain some of this money for design services, but I thought the designs I saw were not worth that money -- not even close. 3. I tried to ensure that Portis in the contract agreed to the performance / quality standards contained on its own website, but was refused. That's a no go area for me. A contractor should always be willing to put website claims into the agreement. Long story short -- when spending upwards of $40,000 the agreement should fully (but reasonably) protect the interests of the homeowner and I felt this firm was unwilling to amend its documents to do so. I eventually used another firm that had a fair contract, which I will eventually review on Kudzu was well. I'm sure Portis will respond -- as he did to me -- and say he has a long list of happy customers. That may be true, but in the event of problems (which can always occur), a fair agreement best serves my interests.

Portis Building rebuilt my burned down building from the slab up but was able to retain the 100-year old exterior facade and beautiful architecture which I love so much. Couldn't have asked for anything more. Truly professional. Beautiful job, superb quality and great customer service.

Portis managed a major renovation in our home. They removed the wall between our living room and family room, creating a beautiful great room. When Sam walked in to give us our estimate, he immediately told us the challenges we would face and the best way to accommodate them. The job was finished on time, within budget and was more than we had hoped for. Sam,his employees and subcontractors were highly professional and responsible.

Your decision to remove the wall was an excellent idea and even we were impressed with the changes it made in the overall look of the house, it's completly differant and so new looking!
We had an existing sunroom removed and replaced by an extended patio (34x18), new deck, built-in grill, brick retaining wall, and outdoor lighting. The quality of work was top notch and the renovation completely transformed our back yard. We now spend every possible hour enjoying this "outdoor addition." Portis Building was extremely easy to work with and flexible throughout our many last minute changes. I would recommend them to anyone. D Farlow

We added a large sunroom and a bathroom and both projects far exceeded our expectations in both quality and aesthetics. They blended our existing construction with the new construction and everything looks great together. We are recommending Portis Building to our son and our friends. They were on time, on budget and in general made every effort to provide an excellent product. In addition, they were totally honest and fair in every respect.
Portis Building started and finished my small remodeling job right on time as promised. They took the time to match the new flooring with my existing flooring which was fifty years old. They cleaned up the work area so well every night that I hardly knew they were there. Highly recommended!
Portis Building & Interiors just completed redoing my kitchen - and I love it - and so does everyone who visits! I was always informed of their working schedule so I always knew what to expect and who would be working that day. All the subcontractors were very professiona and always left my home looking neat and clean.
We do our best to keep oour customers informed of any schedule changes and we now have implemented a customer log in on our web site to allow 24/7 customer access to their schedule and documents and job photos.
The Portis team was professional, respectful, and honest from the start to finish. We added a beautiful screen porch, great master bathroom, huge walk-in closet, and laundry room. Having them in and around the house was not a problem. They did their work, kept things clean, and let us have our lives as normal as you can with so much work.
