Without a Doubt!

After interviewing eight different contractors we found Travis Bowen with Epic Interiors. The search was worth it, as we couldn’t be happier with Epic Interiors and our new home! We remodeled the entire first floor of our San Juan Capistrano home that was built in 1974; kitchen, living room, dining room, family room, and powder room. We wanted an “open concept” without adding to the footprint of the house. A wall was removed between the dining room and kitchen; and the kitchen was moved, yes moved, to where the family room once was. It wasn’t just a simple remodel to update the rooms.  It was an out-of-the-box, creative design, that specifically met our family’s needs. Epic Interiors & Construction was the perfect team for us to work with because they listened to what we wanted, gave invaluable advice, and produced exceptional craftsmanship throughout the entire project.   Here is a summary of our experience with Epic Interiors & Construction and why we highly recommend them to anyone considering a remodel. Epic estimated 3 months for construction (everyone else estimated 5 -6 months). Our project was completed within 3 months!  They were very professional to work with. Their initial quote, as well as add-on expenses, were fair and competitive.There were no surprises when we finalized the bill. Epic made it possible for us to stay in our home during the remodel, and took extra care for our indoor cat. The site was extremely clean everyday and our neighbors appreciated how respectful and professional the entire crew was.  Travis Bowen knows his stuff and he has built as exceptional company with Epic Interiors & Construction. Every crew member, sub-contractor, and laborer who came into our home were professional, highly skilled, and a pleasure to work with. What sets Epic apart from others is that every person on the job takes pride in their craftsmanship. Mike was our project manager and he was unbelievable! His attention to detail, daily communication, craftsmanship and professionalism is second to none. Our project had its share of hurdles along the way but they were never problems according to Mike; instead they were “opportunities to problem solve”! You gotta love that positive mind-set! I am pleased to share that every hurdle was addressed and all problems were solved, thanks to Michael. If you hire Epic and Mike is assigned to your project you just won the lottery! Junior (also known as Jose) was responsible for our new drywall finish, ceilings, paint, and many other important parts of our remodel. He did an amazing job – our skip trowel finish is the best I’ve ever seen! He is an exceptional craftsman, installing our pocket door and exterior door locks with extreme precision.  Don, the electrician, was also a problem solver. We had a few challenges with outdoor speakers, indoor speakers, and all the other high-end appliances we installed in a 40+ year old track home, but he never gave up. He responded to every question and request we had.  We were out of town while the plumbers were here but our neighbors had high praise for their professionalism and cleanliness. They ended up re-plumbing the entire house and provided new plumbing for the Meile steam/combi oven in our new kitchen island. It was an extravagance but something I really wanted, as a seasoned home-cook. It’s exactly what I wanted and I enjoy using it on a daily basis.  We couldn’t be happier with our remodel and the entire construction experience with Epic. Travis, Mike, Junior, Don; they all went above and beyond. Travis spent time helping us with things beyond the construction. He sent us links to bathroom vanities from Houzz, provided samples of flooring, and even gave us suggestions for furniture. His recommendations were always right on. Michael is like the gift that keeps on giving. His pride in a job completed well is second to known, and his drive for customer satisfaction is comparable to Nordstrom.   We are looking forward to remodel part 2 – upstairs! We won’t trust anyone with the project except Epic Interiors and Construction!

Whole House Remodel

“We hired Travis Bowen of Epic Interiors based on a recommendation from a coworker who had completed a whole house remodel. Epic Interiors completed an entire house renovation of a two story 3800 sq ft home built in 1976 from a 4 bedroom 4 bath into a 5 bedroom and 5 1/2 bathroom house. Travis and crew replaced all the plumbing, wiring, asbestos remediation, windows, doors, added supporting steal beams to create an over sized kitchen with custom cabinetry, removed a massive double sided 2 story brick fireplace, bumped up the roof line above the garage, designed a master bathroom, installed dual HVAC units, a whole house fan, two instant hot water heaters, up to a new composite roof and painted the interior and exterior. Travis coordinated with us via phone and email and arranged meetings during project milestones because we lived remotely. Travis created a detailed project plan initially and guided our choices to remain within budget. His crew was respectful and clean throughout the project according to our new neighbors.”

Great Integrity And Professionalism

“Epic did a great job on my remodel. They always did what they said they would when they said they would. I have used other contractors in the past and experienced delays and changes in agreed materials. Not so with Epic – great integrity and professionalism. I feel like I have a brand new house and recommend Epic wholeheartedly.”

Superior Work

“Travis and his team were extremely professional and did superior work. Travis worked with me to make sure my vision came to life and offered fantastic suggestions to make it even better than I imagined. Every member of his crew was polite, on time, did fantastic work and made sure to leave the place tidy and the end of each work day. I would definitely recommend them to others and would hire them again for future projects.”

Great Experience

“Travis impressed me from the first meeting. He took detailed measurements, explained which of my ideas were budget friendly and which ones weren’t, provided a line by line quote that we went through, and once started was available by phone or email daily for any questions comments or concerns. The work was high quality and detail oriented. He listened to our questions and concerns and we were always able to come to agreement. When I was being very picky about some finishing work, he went the extra mile to make the work to better-than-perfect specs. We love our remodeled home and cannot think of a better experience, and will hire him again easily.”

Wonderful To Work With

“Travis Bowen and Epic were wonderful to work with throughout our project. Honest, hard-working, and detail oriented are just some of the positive adjectives I can use to describe them. Our work was completed on time and in line with the vision we had created for our home remodel. Unlike other potential contractors we had met with who listened little and used the phrase “yeah, we’ve done lots of these, so don’t worry”, Travis always took the time to listen to our ideas and then either implement or inform us why it wasn’t possible. I would recommend Travis and Epic for any work you may be considering them for.”


“Travis , Mike, and the entire team at Epic were outstanding! We had thought about this project for a long time and talked to several contractors. I was comfortable with Travis and Mike from the first meeting–professional, easy to talk to, listened to us, gave suggestions. I appreciated the detailed estimate–I knew exactly what to expect and the end result was true to the estimate. We started at the beginning of October and needed the entire project complete by Thanksgiving which included carpeting the entire upstairs and part of downstairs, wood floors in family room, kitchen , and through to the front door, complete kitchen demolition and new everything! Travis and Mike were on top of everything! We completed the project the week before Thanksgiving! I can’t say enough about Travis, Mike, Junior, Israel, Victor, and the whole team. All of these people were a pleasure to have in my home! They were extremely skilled, polite, friendly, and beyond helpful. I really appreciated that Travis and Mike responded immediately to any questions–communication was a breeze! Most important–I LOVE MY HOUSE! The kitchen and new floors are absolutely beautiful!! Lots of company over the holidays and rave reviews for the beauty and workmanship! Planning to do bathrooms in the near future and Epic is definitely my choice. Thank you Travis and Mike!”

Home Remodel

“We hired Travis Bowen and his team for a major remodeling of our house. This included remodeling of the kitchen (with custom-made cabinets) and bathrooms, installing wood floor, replacing carpet,Pex repiping of the whole house and addition of LED dimmer bulbs. Travis and his team were there for us at every step and just a phone call away. We were impressed by enthusiasm, caring and honesty we saw in various team members. They were good listeners who were involved in bouncing back ideas with us, liked to be challenged and to think outside the box and were flexible to incorporate what we desired even through unexpected twist and turns involved in large remodeling projects. I highly recommend Travis and Epic Interiors to those thinking of remodeling their houses in OC area.”

Rebuilt My Home

“After a major leak in our family room, my wife and I decided not to use the company that did the remediation work to do the rebuild. We had used this company before for a smaller leak repair and were not overly satisfied with the quality of the work. Doing some online research, we found Epic Interiors & Construction, Inc. After meeting with Travis we were 100% confident we had found the right company to put our house back together again. Kelly was our project team lead and did an excellent job communicating with us every step of the way. His attention to detail is incredible. He is also well versed in dealing with insurance companies. That was a big relief to us. When the rebuild was completed and I had the final walk through with him, I could not find even one small thing that needed to be addressed. I’ve had a lot of work done in my house over the years and I can honestly say this is the first time nothing needed to be addressed before making the final payment. The workmanship and professionalism Kelly and his team exhibited are second to no one. We will be hiring Travis to do a double bathroom remodel this summer. We can’t wait to share our experience along with pictures once the project is completed.”
