We were headed for a major remodel outside and inside our 6,400 sq. home and quickly realized we could not manage the planning, hiring and execution ourselves. We were referred to A Vita Construction. Hiring Mike Chiera, owner, for the project was the best decision we could have made. Tim and I are thrilled with the design, quality, competitive pricing and overall result. Mike's extensive network of specialists for every job ensured a one stop shop and a fully coordinated project. Everyone that was involved was a delight to work with - Mike and his team were responsive to any questions or changes along the way, met or exceeded committed completion dates and each phase of the remodel came in on or under budget. The result is amazing and we are not only delighted with our 'new' home, but the overall experience!

In 2009, we experienced water damage in our home in Los Lagos. The damage was relatively minor, however, the resulting 'domino' effect created the need for major repairs involving demolition, removal, and installation of tile, base boards, painting, cabinetry, electrical, plumbing, and appliances. The major portion of this was in our family room and kitchen, but it extended to most of the rest of the home as well. We found Mike to be extremely competent and very generous with his time and attention. His estimate of damages and repairs was accepted by the insurance carrier with relative ease. His attention to detail and handling of the sub contractors also made us very comfortable. We are very satisfied with the result of Mike's work. Should we ever need construction repairs again, we would not hesitate .. we would call Mike.

I've been an Interior Designer for over 25 years and working with Mike Chiera is indeed a wonderful experience. His professionalism and dedication to his clients is endless. I consider it an honor to be part of his design team.

I have known Michael since he built our first custom home in Los Lagos in 2000 and then again in 2008 when we wanted to build a larger home. Since then I have recommended Mike to 3 close friends, all selected him to build their custom homes. I have been in the residential and commercial development business for 27 years and I can attest that Michael has ALL of the qualities needed when selecting a General Contractor, industry knowledge, honesty, integrity and a sincere desire to provide the client with their dream home at the greatest value possible.

After enjoying my remodel over the last few months, I wanted to take the time to tell you Thank You so much for all your help!

I love everything about my new kitchen, bar and beautiful new fireplace. My kitchen/great room has been transformed into a cozy and highly functional room to enjoy. From the very detailed initial design to final inspection, I appreciated your guidance and support. I really valued your time commitments and constant involvement. I never had to wonder what would happen next. I especially liked feeling comfortable with all your sub contractors and their reliability and commitment to my job. It seemed most processes moved along without delay. I am also amazed that we were able to stay within budget except where I made choices of items I just "had to have".

I am so happy I did this remodel and look forward to starting on my bathrooms! Actually, I'll wait and sit back and enjoy this for a while ... to be continued!
