Testimonials

“After narrowing down the neighborhood we wanted to live in, we began looking at the all the home builders in the neighborhood who had or were currently building there.  From that list contractors, we looked for the builder that had the best quality of work, cleanest job site, and was overall the most organized.  I wanted a builder to run the job site not his subcontractors to run it.  While price was a very important factor, I knew I could save money in the long run with someone who was in total control of the job site and subcontractors.  I found Savoie to fit that bill. Ross and Pat helped us (particularly my wife) make frugal and well informed decisions. How to save money and where the best places to save it were had a key impact on the bottom line.  In the end, I got a great house at a reasonable price and someone I knew I could count on in the long-run.

We told Pat and Ross what we wanted, about how much we wanted to spend, and we got exactly that, at a price we were comfortable with.  We were new to the area and I never felt like I would be hung out to dry (maybe an Alabama saying) or had to step in and mange the subcontractors.  In my experience, most low cost percentage plus builders just give you the subcontractors name and number and you end up having to do a lot of the managing and quality control.  Not the case with Savoie.

If you want a builder that is going to be pickier than you about how things are done in your home, have a real personal interest in how it is done, and make sure you are pleased with the outcome, you need to go with Savioe.”

“After meeting with several builders recommended to us in Slidell and narrowing it down to two, we contracted with Savoie Construction to build our home in 1999.  From start to finish they were an excellent team of professionals who brought quality, efficiency and good open communication into every aspect of the project.   The house was finished in a timely manner and almost 15 years later it still feels and looks like a brand new house.  A year ago when we wanted to add a bunkroom for our four grandchildren, we knew we could count on Savoie to make it happen, and once again they did a top-notch job.  Everyone who sees the addition cannot believe it was added on.  We have been asked many times who built our home, and we are delighted to spread the good word about Savoie and all the talented, loyal people and craftsmen who make up their team.  The Northshore is fortunate to have a construction company of this quality who has stood the test of time.  With Al’s son, Ross Savoie leading the way, the company is in the best of hands, and we have no doubt they will continue to meet and surpass the high expectations of future homeowners for decades to come.  We just had a Schuber Family Crawfish Boil on the bayou and many of Fred’s out-of-town family had not been to the camp since we added the new room.  They were amazed at how well it blended together.  Also had my New Orleans book club for our monthly meeting and sleepover, and they LOVED the whole house.  We get so many compliments.  Ya’ll need to give us a few cards to hand out!”

“My wife and I really liked our house but did not like our aged and problematic master bath.  Based on a comment from a friend, talking to them about their  pleasure with work just completed by Savoie, we thought that we would include them in asking for bids to redo our master bath.

As part of the bid process, we asked each firm to share their ideas on the remodeled layout.  Our space was rather narrow and the existing layout was not effective.

Savoie offered a series of ideas that appealed to us and their pricing was very competitive.

We are thrilled about our new master bath!  It is more than we ever had hoped for.  Mr. Savior, his onsite project lead, and their very professional crew were a pleasure to work with.  They put up with my ever present questions and new ideas.  They were very responsive to each idea, question, and comment.

It is now over a year and we continue to enjoy all of the amenities and features.  A bonus was their help in choosing the right colors and wall hangings.  We continue to get great compliments from every visitor. ”

We selected Savoie to build our home after meeting with Ross.  He appeared professional, experienced, knowledgeable and easy to work with.  Additionally, we understood that Savoie Construction had a reputation for building well-constructed, premium houses.  After reviewing our plans, Ross offered creative input on ways in which to improve upon our ideas, and he is a perfectionist!  We loved that!!  We could not be happier with the final project of our home!  My cousin, who visits from Atlanta on occasion, has been building premium homes for over 35 years.  He was in town twice while our home was being built and was very impressed with the quality of Savoie’s work.  He commented both times, “Ross is building a fine home for you.”

Savoie Construction and its employees are people you can trust and depend on.  We have only had a couple of minor problems since the completion of our home and they were resolved swiftly, within 24 hours.

We highly recommend Savoie Construction to build your home!

We have employed Savoie construction several times and have been very pleased with their work. They are dependable and meticulous about their project. Communication is never a problem. They are always available to talk with. We have also referred them to family members who have been equally pleased. I would not hesitate to recommend their services!

My wife and I chose Savoie Construction after seeing a few homes they built in the area. Ross, Pat and Raymond were all very helpful throughout the entire process. I gave Ross a pretty strict deadline for completion and he beat it by a couple weeks. We were very happy with the attention to detail that Savoie brings to the table. I’ve already told Ross that when I build my next home, He’ll be the guy to do it!

Ross and his team were great to work with from start to finish. The Savoie Construction team were so professional, honest and hardworking, but the best thing about them was they genuinely cared about our needs for building our dream home. My wife and I couldn’t of asked for a better company to build our first and last home. Special thanks to Ross, Pat and Raymond for their hard work and dedication to our beautiful new home.

We began looking at various home designs and potential builders in January 2016. We saw several homes being built by Savoie Construction and were impressed by the craftsmanship/value. We started with a base plan and developed the final plan with significant contribution of the Savoie team. The process was low pressure and seamless into construction. The Savoie team was available to answer our questions, provided expert advice and were of great value in selecting quality vendors. When completed, we got a high quality house and a good value (appraisal was greater than final cost). This was the fifth house we had built. We selected a quality builder who hires excellent sub-contractors and works with quality material vendors. And most importantly, they are “available” to consult at any time. I would tell any perspective client of Savoie to see the homes built by Savoie and talk to their customers. We did and we got a beautiful home.

We hired Savoie Construction after seeing the quality homes that he has built and talking to other satisfied owners.

Ross Savoie is a professional builder of quality homes. All of his staff and crew are committed to making the building experience friendly and within budget. My home exceeded my expectation. If I had to describe Savoie Construction in one word it would be TRUSTWORTHY.

Savoie construction built our home. I called them because I loved the style and quality of the homes they built. Everyone involved was very easy to work with and they came up with some great ideas. I enjoyed the whole experience.

Hired Savoie on basis of personal interview. Obtained reference from acquaintance who had used Savoie. As we did not have experience in house construction, we relied on Savoie for details design and methods for construction. Also used sub’s as recommended by Savoie to use local personnel.

Savoie reacted quickly to design changes forced by ourselves.
Savoie prepared a detailed estimate for the project and kept us up to date on money changes.

We are well pleases with the result and our choice of contractor.

Savoie did a fantastic job with our project. We wanted a bigger kitchen so we chose to do an addition to our home increasing the size of the kitchen and adding a keeping room. We knew others who had used Savoie and had been in many of the homes they built and/or renovated and each were beautifully designed and constructed. They were our First choice for this project. Pat & Ross were always professional and gave their input but were very open to others thoughts and ideas. They were involved from the concept through the completion. They had vendors they used and recommended but had no problem with working w/ other 3rd party partners/suppliers that we may have found as well. Throughout the project they were both always available and very responsive to our needs and/or concerns. That helps make a project less stressful on the owner. There was always someone there working even during downtime and the project was done on time. One thing I can say and I am sure Pat & Ross would agree; the small minor details were a huge deal with us. We nit-pic! But thankfully that was how Savioe was as well. They understand the small items are just as important as the big items, which meant a lot to us. They made sure we were satisfied in every phase of the project. Overall it was a great experience!! We have a beautiful addition and new kitchen to show for it!!

We love working with this local family owned business. It is so easy to work with Ross and their superintendent Craig. Their choice of quality products and craftsmen shows in their work. We look forward to work with Savoie Construction on future projects.

We bought a home built by Savoie Construction. We wanted the back porch enclosed into the great room. To make matters more interesting, we would be traveling during most of the construction process. It is perfect, inside and outside! The employees are total professionals. I would highly recommend this business. This was May – June of 2014.

Also, they are nearing completion of a home across the street and have been great at keeping the site neighbor friendly. This is from January 2016.

Wonderful experience. Got a great house at at reasonable price. We were in a hurry and we moved in about six months sooner than the other homes that started at the same time. No compromise on quality.
