Condo Remodel: Our job was a rather small one, but Charlie (owner) treated us as if we were a customer with a huge place to remodel. Charlie is very professional from start to finish, quickly responds to any questions you may have, and delivers a thoroughly finished product. We are glad to fully recommend Charlie and his crew for any job, big or small.

We hired Four Star Construction to do our bathroom remodel. The bathroom came out beautiful. Me and my wife love the design of the bathroom. Angelo and his team went above and beyond for our bathroom project.

Thank You, Nicolas and Sara

We hired Four Star in February to remodel our kitchen. They did a great job on our kitchen remodel. Owner really cares about what he does. They took the time to design the whole kitchen from start to finish with me and my wife and made our vision become a reality. The owner pays very close attention to detail and truly cares. I have hired many people to do renovations in the past but Four Star will definitely get our business again if we ever need another renovation. Couldn’t be more happy with the results of the project.

Thank You, Jeff and Brenda

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Charlie and his crew (Four Star Construction). Not only are they great at what they do, but they truly do care about making their customers happy.

We ran into trouble with our old horrible Contractor who seriously screwed up inside of our house, and were desperate. We interviewed numerous new contractors, but after meeting Charlie (as well as reading a lot of wonderful reviews about him online), we felt at ease. We truly had no doubts that he will deliver on all his promises to fix up our place and make it look beautiful again. And he did! He and his crew went above and beyond, and All the work performed was truly done with a meticulous attention to every detail. Work was done in a timely matter, we were always kept in loop with work progress, and Charlie was always there to answer any questions we had for him & any suggestions/advice we wanted to hear from him.

Charlie (Four Star Construction) is without a doubt one of the best General Contractors out there. I strongly recommend him.

Angelo and his team were great to work with! They did an amazing and timely job renovating my basement, and they were very accommodating. I'm more than happy with the results.

The entire interior of our house was almost fully destroyed by fire and water damage from brave firefighters that saved it. For weeks we were emotionally distraught and what made matters so much worst was that we were dealing futility with our insurance company. By the chance of luck we found Charlie from Four Star on the Internet. His references seemed to be ok but we were skeptical until we met him personally. We could immediately see the kind and honest person he was and felt he would be trustworthy. We were totally right!
He promised us a simple 2 page contact which he delivered and based on our gut feelings of him we signed with Four Star the next day and to our expectations every single other thing he said or promised he more than delivered on.
Additionally, his sense of design was even better than we hoped for. He's not only a caring and reputable contractor but he is a talented designer, so our house now looks like pictures you would see in a magazine. Wow he was great but more than anything his integrity is stellar. Our worst nightmare became our dream home thanks to Four Star's crew and Charlie. We cant say enough about them.

I am the Operations Manager for a large import distribution company. We needed to expand and upgrade the appearance of our offices as well as reconfigure our warehouse facility. My Office Manager found Four Star online while searching for a Commercial Contractor. The place looks great, there were no troubles but and importantly they finished on time and without any embarrassment to me because I had to answer to our board of directors and a bad experience could have cost me my job. Nevertheless, I was rewarded by upper management for my wise selection of contractor as well as how fantastic the place looks. I would recommend them highly.

My wife and I searched many contractors in our area to do a Full Remodel of our home. Out of all the estimates, Four Star was the Only one that worked within our Budget. If there was something that my wife and I weren’t too sure about, there was room for adjustments, which really made us feel comfortable with paying for the large amount of work that needed to be done.

Four Star General Contractors Q&A

Company Q&A

How can someone tell if their Garage is suitable for conversion?

3 major things you need to check
Restrictive clauses in your lease - You need to check your property deeds for any restrictive covenants. Some developers place a restriction on any building work that will affect the external appearance of the house. If there is such a clause, contact them, as it can often be circumvented for a fee. Your other option is to convert the inside of the garage without changing its external appearance. This is often achieved by keeping a front portion of the garage for storage space and converting the rest. Of course, the suitability of this option depends on your intentions for the garage.
Planning permission - You usually only need to apply for planning permission to convert a garage when you intend to extend the actual size of the garage. However, check with your local authority as the precise rules do differ.
Building Regulations - If you plan to convert any part of your house into a room to be used as habitable space, you will need to comply with government building regulations. A building control officer will probably need to check your conversion a number of times during construction. More information can be found on the relevant section of the government's website. Again, rules differ so you need to check with your local council. There are some instances where permission to convert your garage may be denied such as:

Run us through the different stages of the Garage conversion process - what's involved?

If you intend to convert your garage, we would recommend contacting a specialist garage conversion company to ensure that the job is done professionally. A bad garage conversion can reduce the value of your home and, if it does not comply with building regulations or the specifics of your leasehold, you may be forced to return it to its original condition. Before committing to a builder or any other professional, remember to check that they are licensed and insured
the old garage door will have to be filled in with a new wall to house a new door and possibly a window. The original foundation of the garage will most likely be a shallow slab and thus insufficient to support the new wall, in which case a deeper foundation needs to be dug. Soil type, adjacent buildings, nearby trees and the resulting drainage conditions need to be assessed in order to estimate what depth and type of foundations are necessary, especially if your house was built on a landfill site.
Depending on what foundations are deemed necessary for your particular conversion, a greater or lesser amount of wall construction needs to be undertaken. Walls underneath the ground (substructure) must support the construction above (superstructure) and, to be effective, these sub-walls must be made from brick that is resistant to ground frost and sulphates present in the soil.
It is likely that at least one completely new external wall will be needed for your garage conversion, such as in the case of the in-fill garage door. External walls constructed of timber and/ or masonry come in two types:
Solid wall - Just a single wall. Due to present day thermal insulation requirements, it is unlikely that such a wall will be suitable.
Cavity Wall - Two walls separated by an internal space, usually filled with thermal insulation.
Any external wall must be constructed in such a way as to repel and divert moisture coming from the ground (damp proofing) and stand up to the outside elements (weather resistance). Thermal resistance is the term given to how much heat the wall will retain and this is naturally affected by your construction materials. Fire resistance is crucial to stop the spread of fire in any eventuality, this is ascertained via minimum standards and affected by the proximity of any neighboring structures. Lastly, the wall will have to bear its own weight, that of the other walls, the roof and any openings (doorways) as required.

How can someone tell if their loft is suitable for conversion?

You’ll want to start by assessing whether your roof space is suitable for conversion. Most are, but there are three main things to check:
Internal height, Roof pitch. & Footprint. Planning permission is not normally required, unless you are extending the roof space or exceed specified limits e.g. any dormer is higher than the current highest part of the roof or you live within a conservation area. It’s best to check with your local planning department to understand what you are allowed to do.
Building regulations apply to loft conversions to ensure, for example, that the structural strength of the new floor is sufficient, the stability of the existing structure is not endangered, there are safely designed stairs to the new floor and reasonable sound insulation exists between the conversion an the rooms below. There are also fire safety regulations with which you may need to comply.

What do you love most about your job?

Transforming peoples homes, and helping them love the home they live in.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I started in Real estate and then I realized people would buy a home and need to do work to it to make it there own. Thus I started to help in the process of remodeling and it took off from there

Why should our clients choose you?

When choosing a contractor:
See if they have a professional office & not just an answering service.
Check the professionalism of the office and the literature.
Check the personality and integrity of the owner and their overall presentation.
Ask about or look at the men who will be working on / in your home or business.
See if you would feel comfortable to entrust your most valuable possessions to them.
If you have hesitations of trust in the beginning, you will be sure to have major problems in the end.
Construction is invasive in & of itself, “if you do not love the owner in the beginning, you will hate him in the end.” – Charles Bonnici
Check the availability and all of the phones numbers which give you access to the owner.
REFERENCES; We have an open door policy of visiting our jobs with an appointment & we notify the owner in advance, they are glad to do it. “A Picture Is Worth 1,000 Words” Thus, we try not to inconvenience our customers with nuisance call references from strangers. You may also visit our office to see volumes of pictures on our computer.
Know that we DO NOT shuffle jobs in order to gluttonize profits, nor do we hurt you in the interim as many others do.
We show up EVERYDAY until COMPLETION.
See if your contract is professionally typed and includes all the items you discussed (and go over it with the owner in detail) or if it’s merely a hand written proposal or an inadequate attempt.
When we come across unexpected problems or impediments as a courtesy we will only charge our costs of time & material. Many other contractors look to make large profits on these items because they know they have you at a major disadvantage.
Most importantly evaluate the owner and his crew and ask yourself this very serious question:
Do you feel safe with them having the key to YOUR Home or Business?
WE COMPLY WITH ALL OF THE ABOVE
