We worked with Peter Wigand when we remodeled our master bathroom. We are thrilled with the final outcome, which was finished on budget and in a timely manner. Peter helped us develop a strategy for fixing our water-damaged floor and updating our 1960s bathroom into an attractive, functional space.

Peter explained issues clearly and was timely with communication using email, texting, phone calls, and face-to-face conversations. We were impressed with Peter’s effort to keep our home (and bedroom) clean while the master bathroom was under construction, and we felt very little imposition despite the work crews being in our home. We were also very happy with the subcontractors Peter hired and found everyone he brought into our home to be professional and courteous. We are happy to recommend Peter Wigand and Blue Chip Builders for anyone needing a general contractor.
