See what they are saying about us...
I hope you had a great holiday,
I just wanted to let you know how much Pete and I appreciate your referring Abraham to us. We have been amazed at the great job he did for us. Specifically:
• Returned phone calls
• Delivered on his promises: He said what he could do, and he did it.
• The quality of the workmanship is outstanding
• Finished work on time and at the price he quoted
Did far more than we expected: Picked up what we bought at Home Depot. Made someone available to receive a delivery from Best Buy when we couldn't be there...Must have shoveled all that snow when we were away
The house looks like a brand new house, and all of it done in record time. As you know, I've been through home renovations before, and many of them are with contractors who are impossible to contact, who charge you more than they quote, who don't return phone calls, and aren't there when they say they'll be there. Abraham was the exact opposite. Always courteous, with a great group of craftsmen, who did a fabulous job on our house. We will definitely ask him back to do our exterior work as well this Spring.

Abraham Gonzalez, One Way Development, has been working for me steadily since 2001. The jobs have ranged from new kitchens, baths, roofs, adding rooms, paving, interior and exterior painting, residing, new windows, new porches, heating and electrical to complete gut rehabs of multifamily properties. I use him almost exclusively because of how he stands out from the crowd of contractors; he is trustworthy, careful, intelligent, hard-working and his workers are pleasant to have around and know how to be respectful of tenants while they work. His prices are competitive. And he never leaves me to go work on some other job while my job remains unfinished, as has to me happened with other contractors.

Abraham did an excellent job repairing our roof after we suffered significant ice and water damage during the winter of 2008-2009. He installed proper soffits, fascia and trim around the entire roof line of the home, also adding soffit vents. These repairs completely solved the issue if ice dams and water leaks. He also completely rebuilt the roof and ceiling of our sun-room which was also damaged by ice storms, which included installing a custom wood wainscoting ceiling, which he built from scratch to accurately resemble the historic look of the previous ceiling. Abraham has done several other projects for me over the last several years, and his work is of the highest quality. His honesty and accessibility at anytime via phone and email is a huge plus compared to every other contractor or builder I have ever worked with.

In 2010 I refinanced my two-family home and took cash out to make multiple and much needed improvements to my home. First things first, I needed to find a trustworthy, responsive, reliable and knowledgeable contractor that could complete the required work in a timely manner with a fair and competitive price.
I did my due diligence and reached out to multiple contractors to provide scope of work and to ask for rough estimates. I hired One Way Development because owner/president Abraham Gonzalez knows his trade very well. He agreed to meet me on my timeline, just a day or two after I called him.He was prompt. He took special care to ask me all the right questions to determine what my needs were. He offered creative lower-cost alternative solutions for some of the work. Most importantly, his prices were competitive, and in fact, much lower than the competitive quotes I received from other contractors.
When all was done, I spent the bulk of my budget with Abraham. My only regret is I wish I had hired Abraham for other home improvements before I found him!
You will do yourself a disservice if you need a contractor and you don't call One Way Development and ask Abraham to come by to listen to your needs and to provide a quote.
Here is some of the work One Way Development did for me:
• Complete rehab of my rental unit including: new walls, new ceilings, new floorboards, new window and door casings, new kitchen cabinets, new kitchen appliances, painted walls, sanded and refinished wood floors
• Ordered and constructed backyard shed (wood with vinyl siding and asphalt roof shingles) built atop a poured cement foundation. Electrical outlets and light switch line run from main home, under ground, to the shed
• 4' high and 20' long brick retaining wall with brick steps leading from front to backyard
• Removal and disposal of old 2-car driveway then poured new asphalt driveway
• Closed off unneeded doorways in my unit and common area. Looks like a doorway was never there.
