Testimonials

beforeafter“My husband and I have used Abilene Restoration for two major renovations at our home in Abilene. We have been extremely pleased with the results.  Last year, Abilene Restoration completely gutted our kitchen and gave us a beautiful new kitchen.   Owner, Kepha Hawkins II worked with us during the entire process, and  was always available when we had questions or concerns.  He and his employees were very professional, knowledgeable, friendly,  trustworthy, timely & efficient. This year, we worked with them again to have our 50 year-old swimming pool filled in and a new patio built over it, including a new fire pit and fountain.  Abilene Restoration came through again, doing an excellent job. Abilene Restoration was highly recommended to us by friends and we highly recommend them to everyone we know. If you want a job done right and in a timely manner, call Abilene Restoration.  They can handle any job you need done. You will not be disappointed!”       -Dr. & Mrs. Larry Ellis

The work­men were de­pend­able, hon­est, and friendly. The project lasted for 4.5 months. They were in our home al­most daily. The work was done to our sat­is­fac­tion. The re­model of one bath­room did not please us and they re­did the work with­out ad­di­tional cost to us. None of the work­men smoked. They were amaz­ingly pro­fes­sional, po­lite and friendly. They re­painted the in­te­rior of our home; re­mod­eled our kitchen, in­stalling gran­ite coun­ter­tops, new stain­less steel ap­pli­ances, new tile and floor­ing. They moved some walls and mod­i­fied oth­ers. They re­placed our stair rail­ings and re­built our fire­place. All the work was truly ex­cel­lent. ” -Mr. and Mrs. Parkhill

photo Photo2“Kepha and his crew at Abilene Restoration have always met and exceeded our construction and remodeling needs. Before we moved into our house almost 5 years ago, Kepha and his guys painted our kitchen cabinets, painted walls, trim and closets, removed wallpaper and updated lighting and fans for us.  Our house closing date was delayed, so Kepha and his crew worked tirelessly to have the house ready for us before we moved in shortly after closing. Abilene Restoration has helped us add a nice patio and fire pit to our backyard and also has come back to paint the entire interior of the house and add some interior columns. Kepha has the best team working for him.  All his guys are clean, timely, very respectful and hard working. I trust them in our home and around my family. You can trust that Abilene Restoration will get the job done and get it right.”  -Eric and Katie Gillis

“Abilene Restoration and Construction was referred to me by another builder.  Kepha came out and we went over our ideas for our outdoor kitchen.  What impressed me most was that Kepha listened and took notes and measurements and actively listened to what we wanted done.  He told us how he would accomplish our plans, and said he would get back to us in a few days with an estimate. A few days later, he emailed me a very reasonable estimate.  He and his staff did exactly what we asked, even taking on some minor changes mid-stream.  He and his staff were friendly and respectful. We absolutely love the results and plan on having them come back some time in the future to build a gazebo.  We have already recommended them to some of our friends. ” -Mike and Terry Phipps

“We own a couple of businesses in Abilene and met the owner of Abilene Restoration a few years ago when we were leasing a building on North 1st and our landlord had a new roof put on the building.  We took notice to how polite and easy to get along with, not only the owner, but also the employees were. Since then, we have used Abilene Restoration on two major jobs and some smaller jobs as well.  They have built office space for us in one of our buildings, and they have done a major remodel on our home.  They listen to your ideas and go out of their way to do what you want done.  If there ever is a problem, they don’t make it an awkward situation.  They listen and do whatever it takes to correct whatever it is. We like working with people like that. These people really do care!!  We will be using Abilene Restoration again on future projects!” – Tommy and Wanda Gregory

Not only did they an outstanding and professional job, they went above and beyond expectations and made our carport the envy of the neighborhood. I know all about professionalism and attention to detail from being in the military and Abilene Restoration did not disappoint” – Rev. Tommy J. Jackson

IMG_6490 IMG_6491“Having dealt with several contractors this past year on the shop build and now the updates in the house, I can honestly say that Kepha Arcemont Hawkins II is one of the best we have had do major work for us. Kepha’s company, Abilene Restoration provided quality work and stayed on point and was there everyday. From helping us plan the job and choose the materials, to performaing the work and keeping us informed all along the way and actually punching out the job in a very timely fashion, they rocked it! Tammie and I could not be happier with the outcome. Now the new front entrance and the exterior work is next. Thank you Kepha and Abilene Restoration.” – Paul and Tammie Bilberry

The owner, Kepha Hawkins, is personable, professional, and knowledgeable. I definitely appreciated his using innovative apps like houzz to help me get my ideas expressed tangibly. His crew were like family before it was all done. I never worried a minute about the project, as any of my questions or concerns were always addressed promptly. Kepha and his crew were invaluable as the finishing work progressed and working with me to get what I wanted in the final product. I have been very happy with the entire area. The work they did for me was exceptional. So much so that they did my roof a few months later. I feel I have a ‘go to’ company when it comes to my home.”  – Darlena Ingram

a b“We are very pleased with the work of Abilene Restoration & Construction. Kepha Hawkins and his crew (especially Shuby) did excellent work remodeling our new home, which was built in the 1980s. We initially ran into a problem with a sagging ceiling in the living room, but Kepha solved the problem by installing a beam. Now the beam looks like it was part of the design. They did an excellent job totally remodeling the master bathroom as well as the en suite bathrooms in our other two bedrooms. Perhaps the most impressive change was their removing an upstairs wall and installing a cable railing system. We appreciate the honest work and fair pricing for their service. The project may have taken longer than we would have liked, but that goes with remodeling. We would recommend Abilene Restoration and Construction without reservation to anyone needing remodeling work.” -Scott and Jamie Miller 

“Needed major updates and repairs. We were on a time constrain, and many of the contractors we called not even wanted to come give us an estimate. We contacted Abilene Restoration after looking at the great reviews. Kepha Hawkins was very prompt to come and evaluate our situation and gave us a reasonable price to complete the project. He and his crew worked hard. They were very respectful and honest. They gave us great ideas during the project. The subcontractors that he brought did a great job too, especially the electrician, the cabinet and the glass company. The bathrooms look beautiful. They also did a outstanding job in the kitchen. Kepha was available to answer questions when we had them. The project was not completed at the time we had set, but it took place around all the end of year holidays, and we had a large remodeling project. Eventually everything worked out well. We highly recommend them. .” -Stevens Family

 

Abilene Restoration did a kitchen, master bath, guest bath and flooring remodel for us. Kepha and his crew do good work for a fair price. Kepha helped in the planning phase to get the end product we wanted and worked with us to provide it at a reasonable cost. He has established relationships with many retailers and subcontractors in the area who provide great products and services. The kitchen remodel did go over on time but the end result was worth the wait. It turned out great. We did some renegotiating on the terms of our contract regarding the timeline prior to starting the bath portion of the project. Kepha addressed our concerns like a true professional. The rest of our project went smoothly, finished on time and the end result was great. Kepha and his crew work hard, are trustworthy and professional. They never failed to address any concerns or issues we had to our satisfaction. We will definitely have them back to do any future projects. I would not hesitate to recommend Abilene Restoration to any friends or family. They do quality work at a reasonable price.” – Boyles

 Kepha and his crew did a great job.  Trustworthy and approachable with any issues that needed correcting. Took longer than expected but the end result was worth it. He is fair and honest and reasonable. We are going to use him again for our bathroom remodel. – Scott & Tiffany Lamb
