“ ‘My painting for you,’ quipped the mason, as he completed an absolute masterpiece with the stonework fireplace – a true work of art. Exceptional quality with amazing pride in workmanship is the mantra that traverses the entire Crimson team. The Architect and Project Manager were easy to work with, very responsive, and insightful with suggestions and options. The Crimson team took the time to understand what we were looking for, our expectations, and our style preferences and exceeded our expectations at every turn. The interior design support alleviated the stress of whether the colors and textures would compliment each other. The supporting cast of craftsman worked diligently to keep things clean. They were pleasant to work with and always took the time to explain next steps. We recommended Crimson to some friends for a master bath remodel – they were equally impressed with the quality of workmanship. We would highly recommend Crimson to anyone seeking a remodel or home addition of their dreams. Crimson is proof that dreams do come true.”

He clearly makes an effort to seek out the right contractors, products and information to fulfill his clients’ needs. We really appreciate working with dedicated professionals like Glenn who go above and beyond to provide quality service to their clients. For this reason, we recommend Crimson Design & Construction.”

“I have only the most positive things to say about Crimson Design & Construction! Glenn and his team possess extensive experience and knowledge, and this is evident at each stage of the design/build process. During my master bath remodel, they tailored their recommendations to the unique aspects of the space involved, as well as to certain preferences I had expressed. They also demonstrated an ability to generate creative options and solutions to help make the most of the space – both functionally and aesthetically. When working on my project, Glenn, Chuck, and Keith showed tremendous attention to detail, made sure that every question I had was answered, and went above and beyond to help me make materials selections and be able to envision the finished product. When the demolition and remodeling work was actively underway, the workspace was kept very neat and organized, and every effort was made to minimize disruption to my daily routine. On top of all that, everyone I interacted with at Crimson was very pleasant to have around, something that is a really nice “plus” when people are working in your home for any length of time. I can unconditionally recommend Crimson to anyone seeking the highest level of client service and quality in the design/build field.”

“Glenn and his team did an amazing job on my kitchen remodel. Glenn was able to realize the vision I had for a welcoming, open space for my friends and family, while being accessible, professional and fun to work with!”



“The comment I tell most people is Crimson is probably one of the only people in the construction trade where the customer’s always right.”

Bob & Ann


“We did exterior work including rebuilding a retaining wall and stone work on a rock wall, driveway repair, structural repair to our front porch where foundational posts needed to be redone, new tiling and light fixtures. Overall great experience. Had to push through at times in making sure all facets of project were being communicated particularly on timing, but quality work and wonderful people with which to work.”

Ed D.


“Glenn worked on a design for an in-law suite for me and my family. I was very impressed with Glenn’s taking a personal interest in the needs of our family and working them into his design. Other firms that provided estimates were much more interested in what they are going to get out of the project rather than what we needed.

Things ended up changing in my family situation so we did not require the addition in the end. However, if you want a partner in your design process, give Glenn at Crimson a call.”

Houzz User


“I cannot say enough about the positive experience I had with Crimson for my kitchen remodel and its amazing transformation. From the outset, they were friendly, professional, responsive and receptive to my ideas. They were able to work with my budget and even helped with selecting the countertops, backsplash, etc. I have worked with other contractors in the past and the team at Crimson was far superior. I have recommended them to everyone I know who is looking to do a remodel or addition.”

Elyse C.


“We’re very happy with Crimson. The project was completed a few years ago, and we still maintain a very good relationship with Joel and Neil. We feel we can contact them with questions and we always get answers. They really go “above and beyond”, they take pride in their projects. We have and will continue to recommend them to friends and neighbors.”

“I love Crimson Design & Construction! I have been disappointed by other contracting firms, but Crimson is A++. Plus you get architectural and contracting services in one! I’m using Crimson Design for my businesses build out in Highland Park, slated for opening early summer. Glenn, the owner/architect, came out the day after I called, and gave me a very reasonable estimate and timeline. I can’t wait to see the magic they work on the space!”

Cindy K.


“I just completed a major kitchen redesign with Glenn and team. My kitchen is gorgeous and looks nothing like the 1990’s version it started as. The project involved knocking out a wall, covering over a back door and replacing it with a slider. We needed to match existing wood flooring and the match is pretty good. The job was finished is 8 weeks – on time and within budget. The construction team lead by Chuck was terrific to work with and Chuck couldn’t have been more responsive. No matter what time of the day or night I texted him, he got right back to me. He was on top of every detail of the project. He settled for nothing less than quality and perfection. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them for any job you are thinking of undertaking.”



“We were concerned about every aspect of the process because we had never done a remodel. The design had been a major concern as we had no idea what we wanted. We were amazed and pleasantly surprised at how easy Stephanie made it for us. She did a wonderful job, and we are so pleased with the results.”

“Besides being really nice guys, their goal is to have a satisfied customer. We felt this from our very first meeting to this very day. From that, all else flowed. They handled all problems, gave us advice and opinions, and ultimately created our vision just as our heads saw it. Not an easy task getting a picture out of someone’s mind. They are fabulous!”

Mike & Cher


“I give them an A+ on everything.”

Jim & Marianne


“Crimson was one of four companies we interviewed to use to remodel our kitchen. We chose them because of their professionalism, their clear proposal, their eye for detail, but more importantly, they made us feel very important and like we were their only client — and that is so important no matter how small or big your project is. They are a great group of people to work with from the top down. We plan to use them for our basement in the very near future.”

Brian & Kely


“The staff are all very professional. A top notch organization. They were very good to lay out options and ask my preferences as the work progressed.”
