WE TRUST SUNPATH
We bought an older home that needed a lot of renovation. Over the years we have had a new kitchen, 2 bathroom renovations, a wood floor for our living / dining rooms and a new roof put on by Sunpath. We have always found Walter and his people to be honest and reliable. We always felt well informed in making our choices and all costs were completely explained to us before work started. I have recommended Sunpath to several friends who were as happy as we were with their results. When you spend money on a project, it's nice to know that the people performing the job care about it as much as you do.

Sun Path did a major rehab job for me, after terrible mold/water damage to my little house. They demolished the house down to the studs and sub-floor and rebuilt it. They were very knowledgeable, fair, were very pleasant to work with, and did excellent, high quality work overall. They were responsive to requests when multiple members of the family contributed to the rehab effort. They were helpful in finding and ensuring that recycled materials were used throughout; the house features many environmentally friendly elements. Communication was sometimes a small problem, but not serious. In terms of price, they came in on or over the high side of their bid. In general, I would say their work was excellent.

Master Bath remodel
In a house 20 years old, we redid the master bathroom, gutted-toilet stayed in same place, but was replaced. Shower in same place but was expanded to a 2 person shower. New smaller tub, with jets, continued with 2 sinks, but more counter area & room for a vanity. New cabinets under the sinks, drawers between, drawers with the vanity area &some corner storage space underneath the counter. Replaced a small medicine chest with a glorious cabinet from floor to almost ceiling-storage on bottom half-glass shelves on upper half. The shower is a 2 person shower-1 person has a rain shower head, the 2nd person has 3 options (2 can be used at once)-including a normal shower head with variable settings, a handheld variable setting head, mounted on a slider bar and a set of pressure water sprayers. Also added a very nice mounted seat in the shower that folds up. Great to work with-Walter, Sue the designer and Kirk for tile. It's pricey and took some time-feels like a fancy hotel bathroom.

Careful Work by a Contractor Who Cares
We had an extensive, mostly internal remodel done by Sun Path. It included a completely new kitchen, new flooring upstairs and down, changing the location of bathrooms and closets, a new gas fireplace and a new roof. We are so thrilled with our modern look and especially with the beautiful tile work throughout our home. Sun Path proceeded deliberately and carefully on this tricky remodel of a house built 30 years earlier. They dealt calmly with extensive water damage and other "surprises" that cropped up along the way.
We were so pleased that a year after the first remodel we embarked on a major outdoor renovation, including new deck flooring, new siding, new stainless steel deck railing, extensive grading of our hilly yard, poured concrete garden walls, a water feature, giant rocks, all new plants and a lovely screening element.
Both of these were expensive projects, but Sun Path was always ready to sit down with us, go over the figures and find ways to save when necessary.

More than satisfied
Living in the middle of a home remodel is never easy, but Sunpath made it an amazingly smooth process. Communication was clear,price estimates were reliable, subcontractors were courteous, dedicated,and highly skilled, and the finished product surpassed our expectations. Our project manager, Sue Carlson, was outstanding. She responded to every question and concern promptly and somehow managed to overcome a late tile delivery to get our kitchen ready just in time for a big crowd on Thanksgiving.

100% positive experience
We started our project and SunPath came out to talk to us. They made recommendations to help us go in the right direction. They provided a thorough quote so there would be no surprises. Everything was done on time and the delivered product exceeded our expectations. We will use them again when we have another project.

Walter knows his stuff!
We had a large uncovered deck that we wanted to make more usable. We hired Sun Path Construction to add a gabled cover over one portion of the deck and a cover that also served as an upstairs walk-out view deck over another portion.
From the start, we recognized that Walter was a very detail oriented builder and also a careful planner. The tie-in to the existing house as well as pouring support foundations beneath part of the existing deck were not simple tasks but Walter (and Sue) anticipated most of the potential road blocks and this went smoothly.
In fact, there were very few surprises and because of Sun Path's approach, they were generally dispatched in short order.
All of the trades that worked on this project, whether they were Walter's employees or subs were professional, friendly and timely.
Walter's carpenters were knowledgeable and very easy to work with and included us in decisions on some of the details. Project was on budget and timely.

New "modern" home construction
If you are looking for quality and innovative design, with a focus on craftsmanship, consider Sunpath Custom Construction. Your project may take longer, but the end result is a product that will last for decades. Our modern home project was by no means an easy one, as many new ideas and materials were incorporated into the design-build process. Walter and Sue reworked plans, made suggestions, and cared about our project as if they were building their own home. They also cared about helping us stay within our budget and were sensitive to our needs during construction.
Sunpath is the one to choose! Walter and his team are detail oriented and simply know how to build a solid quality northwest home.

Workers were efficient, friendly, and did a great job. The newly remodeled bathroom is now the best room in the house.

Excellent transformation of our kitchen
We've had SunPath do two other substantial remodelling and addition projects for us. Now, we've had them do our kitchen remodel, which we love. They're a great bunch of folks to work with who are responsive and understanding. We'll choose them again!

My Experience with Sun Path
I worked with the people at Sun Path in 1994, remodeling and expanding my bathroom. I was so pleased with their work that I decided to have them back in 2011 to build an addition to my house. As my family grew, I needed a dining room. The addition went so well that in 2012 I asked them to return and build a deck off the dining room and in 2013 they came and remodeled my kitchen. Through each of these projects Walt and Sue were able to stay within the proposed budget, provide me with constant updates, and stay within the estimated timeline. They even finished the remodel of my kitchen in two months, which may have been a record. The quality of their work is top-of-the-line and I would not consider hiring any other construction business into my home. Sue, Walt, Bonnie, and the rest of the crew are the best!

Solid, Dependable, not afraid to think out of the box - Walter actually listens
I've used Walter and SunPath on large (>100K) and small (<10K) remodel/upgrade project for the past 10 years. Each time the project has been completed on time and on budget with great results. Walter is not only creative, but a good listener and incorporates what you want even if it's not the standard pratice, and after all, if you're going to pay money for someone else to do the work, why settle?
Good luck and I hope your experience with SunPath is as sucessful as mine have been.

We had Sun Path Custom Construction as the Project Manager/General Contractor for an energy efficiency upgrade to our 20 plus year old office building. While the various improvements were being made (from sealing air leaks throughout, to changing lighting fixtures, to re-roofing --using an energy efficient roofing product) my staff and I remained in the building working throughout the construction. Walter Galitzki and his team were incredible, but Walter in particular was really great to work with. I received regular reports about the status of all aspects of the project and was never "surprised" by anything. I'm very busy and it was a genuine relief to know that I could rely on Sun Path Custom Construction to do what needed to be done and to communicate in a timely and professional way with me. The work turned out really great and the end result was what we had expected -- energy consumption and water consumption reductions and a much more comfortable work environment.
