Greco Roman Construction has always exceeded our expectations because George Drakatos treats our home as if it were his own. When our previous house needed a full roof replacement, I called George, only to ask if he could recommend someone because I didn’t think he did roofs. That was the first of many times when George said we can do that, and he was the lowest of 3 bids.
Over the years, I have lost count of how many times I’ve heard George say we can do that, to the point where my first and only call is to Greco Roman Construction. You know the old saying about how you can have the project done 1) on time, 2) with the highest quality, or 3) on budget – so pick any 2. Well, with Greco Roman Construction, I feel I get all 3 options every time.
George is always on-site (usually singing), the project is kept clean, and I’m kept in the loop about any construction or design issues. In our previous house, Greco Roman’s work included: Removal and replacement of the tile flooring throughout 100% of the house (closets, everywhere); Removed and replaced shake roof with 30yr shingle (repaired wood underneath where necessary); Filled in sunken cement floor areas in living room and master bedroom and made level with rest of floor; Replaced exterior doors: Remodeled kitchen and bathrooms (back to bare walls, new cabinets, counter tops, appliances and walk in shower with matching tile); and Complete exterior paint.
In our current house, Greco Roman Construction has completed: Extensive roof repairs and leak fixes to tile roof; Replaced air conditioners and conduit; Full kitchen remodel (back to bare wall, new cabinets, counter tops, appliances); Installed all new windows to dual pane; Repaired previous ceiling leaks and damage (cut into walls, fixed pipes, repaired sheet rock); Added walk in closet, moved interior wall and door, replaced trim; Remodeled upstairs bathroom (new cabinets, counter tops, bathtub and sliding glass door); Remodeled master bathroom (new tile floor, removed old jacuzzi tub, added new walk in shower with wet & dry area, new cabinets, counter tops, mirror); Replaced / added LED ceiling lighting throughout house; Complete interior and exterior painting; Pool remodel (pool chip out, pebblesheen resurface, removed rock fountain, poured new pool deck, recoated pool deck, built 10×10 spa with tiled edge, new pool & spa pump & equipment, installed custom 12ft pool slide with ladder & water pump); Backyard remodel (graded yard to make more usable, installed raised patio of pavers, steps, lighting, added grass, new sprinklers, plants & trees).
George helped us create literally a new house. His suggestions from room layout, structural design, to finishing, trim and paint color made our house perfect. George has the highest standards for the finished job. He gets it right or makes it right. That’s pretty rare these days!

He went above & beyond to repair my kitchen not only back to its original state, but better! He has become a huge resource, & I call on him often to trouble shoot other problems I am having in my home. I trust him implicitly, and his work is outstanding. I recommend Greco Roman ANY time I have the chance. I am also sure that George will be working on my house on a regular basis. Thank you, George, for your attention to detail, your great customer service, and your dedication to your craft.

They arrived with a great attitude each day, polite, and non-evasive. Greco Roman Construction truly went above and beyond, with the utmost attention to detail and a professional mannerism throughout the process. The project flowed smoothly, as I was walked through everything that would be done, the process in which it would be accomplished, and what the final result would be. The major improvements made to my home were completed in a timely manner, and with truly superior quality work. They strove to ensure all of my needs were met, and they left me feeling comfortable and with money left in my pocket.
The next time I need a job done, my first and only call will be to Greco Roman Construction.

I feel he knows my home like your favorite mechanic knows your car. George is the only one I would call when I need work done on my home. From the initial consultation to the final details fo construction, George delivered with integrity and craftsmanship. He has the ability to communicate and understand our specific requests and concerns coupled with his passion for the profession. You can tell he loves what he does!
George is an honest and fair professional, eager to complete his work in a timely and precise manner. His dependalbe approach to the work is very reassuring to the homeowner. Being on time and working constantly at the job, even after hours to research or secure materials, is an additional attribute to an allready focused contractor.
We are very comfortable having George in our home and have left town with him in charge. He and his crew can be trusted to respect the homeowner’s property as well as their privacy. By the time the kitchen was completed, he was part of the family. We are extremely pleased with the work he did and are very proud to tell others about George and his company.

I so appreciate how George looks after our whole house, especially since we’re only there part-time. When he was remodeling the office, he found the lock on our front door was improperly installed, and when he was painting, he found broken tiles on the roof that was causing a lek in our garage when it rained; something the home inspector should’ve caught as it had been leaking for some time.
We knew we found a rare gem when George was the only contractor of the five we spoke with that could actually explain in detail, at our first meeting, how he was going to install a 20′ wide sliding door on an outside bearing wall. All the other so-called contractors said, They’d need to get back to us. George has always been on or under budget, and we would obviously highly recommend him. George has our permission to give out our contact information if you have any questions.
