"We had a great experience having two houses renovated by K&M to tight deadlines. The quotations were very competitive, the work was done on time, and to a high standard, and everything was left clean afterwards.
We had just bought a new house and the sale went through just before we went on vacation. We wanted to take the opportunity to renovate before we moved, but were a bit nervous about not being around to supervise the work. However, we needn't have worried because Juan of K&M made sure he knew what we wanted before we left and took care of everything. When we got back, we found that he and his team had done even more work than we had asked, and for no extra cost. For example, we agreed that certain rooms needed to have wallpaper stripped, the walls re-plastered and painted, but whenever Juan and his time noticed something extra was needed above and beyond what we agreed, they just did it. So we found a lot of areas that we decided not to redo, to save expense had been pained anyway, and at no cost to us. (I should be clear here that this was done sensibly, so we did not come back to find that they had randomly decided to paint something a strange color.)
The best part of the job was wall they knocked out between the kitchen and living room. In our rush to complete the sale before we left for vacation we didn't have time to specify very accurately what we wanted, apart from saying that we would like a low shelf to be left separating the two rooms. Juan's team used their initiative and copied some of the details in other parts of the house, so that the wood surrounding the new opening really looks like it was always meant to be there.
Juan did a walk-through with us when we got back from vacation and was willing to redo anything we were not happy with. Between us we spotted a few minor things, which he then took care of the following day. At this point we also noticed that the carpet on the stairs was dirty. This was not due to the renovation, since the workers covered everything with plastic sheets. Nevertheless, Juan came back and cleaned the carpet for us for free.
The second house we asked for K&M's help with was the one we had just moved from. We decided to find a tenant for it, but it needed some painting and minor repairs. These were done within days of agreeing the price with Juan. Once again, the work was great.
When we save some more money we are planning to remodel the master bathroom. K&M will be our first choice for this.
