“This being our first big remodel of our beloved home, we were anxious about well…everything. The staff at Tradewinds could not have been a better fit for us. Peter K patiently went through multiple revisions of the plans (since we’re a little picky) before starting the project to make sure we got what we were after. Once the walls came down, the project went so smoothly we found ourselves asking if we should have done more. Certainly, there were unexpected things that popped up (weird, in a 1939 home) but the team at Tradewinds adapted and solved these issues without skipping a beat. When we said “hey, our foundation is sinking so we need to fix that but we’d like to stay on schedule” they adjusted the construction schedule around the foundation company’s timeline and stayed on schedule. In fact, not only did we finish on time but we finished on budget. That NEVER happens. We especially appreciated the attention to detail that Peter C possesses. He made sure that there were no shortcuts taken and what we had in our heads materialized in our home.”
“Thanks to Tradewinds, we now have the home we’ve always envisioned and are the envy of our friends. If you’re in need of an honest and reliable team that is as invested in your project as you are, you need to get in touch with Tradewinds.”

“Everyone knows there are a number of individuals in the design and construction business who give the industry a bad name, the individuals at Trade Winds Construction are not them. We cannot say enough good things about them and we can’t tell enough people about them; Peter K, Peter C, Sara, their crew, subs and vendors are amazing! Just a few words to describe them: reliable, attentive, creative, timely, friendly, knowledgeable, insightful, thoughtful, accessible, professional, trustworthy and that is just to name a few.”
“There were no surprises, the estimate provided in the beginning was the price we paid at the end unless we changed something. There was no up selling, no pressure and they were with us every step of the way. Trade Winds Construction takes pride in their work and they should, it is beautiful. We were happy when we purchased our home, we were glad we hired Trade Winds Construction for the renovation and we are super excited with the end results. Job well done, Thank YOU!”

“Trade Winds was recommended to us by our realtor when we bought our house, relocating from Massachusetts. The house needed a variety of updates and improvements and we were not going to be moving in for several months. So we engaged them to do the work while the house was unoccupied, while we were back in Massachusetts. The work involved tasks by their own crew, as well as coordination/oversight with a variety of other subs/suppliers. Our trust was paid back in full!!! Their work was impeccable and carried out very professionally. Communication was very thorough. Attention to detail and focus on quality was wonderful. And both Peter K. and Peter C. are great to work with! We have continued to use their help with additional tasks since we have moved in and will use them for anything that comes up in the future.”

“What we liked about Trade Winds Contracting:
The leadership. The owner, Peter Karpuk, makes a marvelous first impression. On time, natty, and poised. He is self-assured, modest and unpretentious. He is articulate and he listens well (kind of a rare trait in this world) to understand his client’s needs and expectations. Within minutes you sense he has the experience, knowledge and know how you had hoped for and require. He radiates confidence (without arrogance) and by conversation’s end captures your trust and respect.
Communications. The follow up to our first meeting was over the top. A detailed outline of their recommendation, cost and work plan was provided promptly. Our project leader (Peter C) was accessible, quick to return phone calls and provide regular updates.
Sub-contractors. Trade Winds have aligned themselves with first class sub-contractors. Their subs are reliable, professional and trustworthy. Their commitment to perfection is amazing. They are on time, respectful and neat.
Additional thought: Although we worked from a plan provided by a professional interior designer our project manager and the subs from time to time made appropriate suggestions and shared ideas that enhanced the beauty and functionality of our makeover.
Hopefully my excitement and enthusiasm for the Trade Winds organization is coming through loud and clear. Our experience was marvelous and the finished product is simply stunning.”

“We hired Peter K, Peter C, and the Trade Winds crew for a major home renovation and we could not be happier with the results. They completely transformed our 1950’s home that had not been upgraded in decades into a beautiful, mid-century-modern house that we absolutely love. Not only were they very easy to work with, but they added tremendous value in helping us make all of the countless decisions that come with taking on such a huge project.”
“They had a great understanding and knowledge of all of the minor finishing details that go with a home renovation and did a wonderful job tying together our tastes with the best available and functional options, even for mundane items like door knobs. They also helped us come up with creative and beautiful solutions for accenting certain rooms (for example using marble tiles on the wall to turn the fireplace into a beautiful showpiece). Everyone we met on their crew was also very friendly and polite. We would highly recommend using Trade Winds for any home improvement projects!”

“Over the last 40 years we have done many major remodels both in the US and Europe. Sometimes we have done it ourselves and at some occasions we have hired a construction company as project managers. When you work with a project manager you have to be very confident that they know what they are doing to the extent that you basically can go on vacation and when you get back home it’s done the way it was supposed to be done.
Unfortunately that rarely happends.
During the 10 years we have lived in the Scottsdale area we have had a hard time to find good people to do projects that way. On many occtions we have paid for a company to do a turn key project but at the end we have ended up as project managers ourselves since the workers, good or bad, simply doesn’t know what to do.
Not long ago we were introduced to Trade Winds Construction. After the first meeting we had a strong feeling that they knew what the were talking about and that we could have full faith in them. They gave a very convincingly and professional impression… and we were right.
They inherited a badly remodeled bathroom and did an excellent job remodelling the remodel. We were gone during the time work was being done and when we got home we found our new master bath just as we expected it.
On time at cost !
We will definately use Trade Wind again and we recommend them to everyone that wants a remodel done professionally“

“Trade Winds Construction helped us turn a rundown historic home into the home of our dreams. Peter understood our vision from the beginning and saw it through to completion. With Peter’s help, we were able to capture the historic charm of the home while updating the home to include all the modern conveniences we desired. The end result is beautiful and we couldn’t be happier. Peter was there for us every step of the way and helped make our dreams come true. Thank you Peter!!!!”

“Trade Winds remodeled our home in 2008. We were very pleased with not only the craftsmanship but also the professionalism and work ethic. All of the workers were very friendly and did a wonderful job. Peter was great and he helped us select quality materials that were within our budget. The project was completed in a timely manner. We absolutely love our home and have had no problems since we moved in. I would recommend Trade Winds to anyone regardless of the size of your budget or project. Thanks Peter.“

“Peter’s attention to detail, budget, cost control and follow through to contract completion exceeded my expectations. His construction design build skills set him apart from anyone I know. He is ethical, trustworthy and does exactly what he says he will do. Peter did a complete design, build, remodel of my home on 45th Street & Camelback – a project in excess of $400,000.00 and the finished product turned out much better than I expected. He brought the project in ahead of time and on budget.“

“We were extremely impressed with Trade Winds’ professional work on our kitchen remodel. We could not be more pleased with the result. Peter’s personal attention and pride were evident in all aspects of the job. We were as impressed by Peter’s upfront work as we were by the final product. His thoughtfulness and honesty relating to the budget and schedule were very much appreciated. Maybe the best surprise of the experience was how immaculate he left the jobsite each night before he left. At the end of the job, Peter was on time and on budget and we were very pleased to have hired him. I have recommended Trade Winds and their subcontractors in the past and will continue to do so in the future.“

“I wanted to take the time to formally thank you for the outstanding job you did while working at my home. From the beginning of the job your company was professional and courteous in every possible way. I was pleasantly surprised at the level of care and overall meticulousness with which you operate. You went well out of your way to ensure that dust, dirt and construction debris were kept to an absolute minimum. Your scrupulous end of the day cleanup process kept my home clean and free of all the normal headaches associated with home improvement. The ease of doing business was unprecedented, and the fact that you completed your work so quickly (ahead of schedule) without sacrificing on quality made my life much easier. Thank you for a job well done. I had a wonderful experience with your company and would not hesitate to refer family and friends to you.“
