Chris just completed my kitchen remodel last week and I'm very pleased with how it turned out. So beautiful and sleek. My friends came over and they were in awe of my new kitchen. Everything was done from top to bottom (New Electrical Lighting, Plumbing, Painting, Tile Backsplash, Granite Countertops, Cabinets & New Flooring).
I am a local sheriff and I did my homework on this contractor. While I understood he had few bad clients in the past, the positive reviews outweighed the negative ones plus he had references which I also checked them out. Not only those items I also looked into his previous projects. I realized that not every contractor is perfect and that we all make mistakes in life. The important thing that stood out about him was his professionalism and his approach to the project with every details. He took photos of the whole progress as well as documenting every work he performed. To me, this means that he took every consideration in making sure I was happy with the progress. I ended up having him redo the ENTIRE main level in my house. New stairwell with hardwood treads and white risers also upgraded my handrail with new stain to match the hardwood flooring and steps.
Chris is somebody you should consider hiring to do the work. He knows just about everything from a design standpoint to trade work. He has a design software to make kitchen 3D drawings and he sells 3 different brands of cabinets. I ended up going with Homecrest due to more viable options they offered at a reasonable price. He also do all the installation of new cabinets. You get 3 in 1 service for a decent price. I went to Home Depot and Lowe's to get quotes and they charge almost 10% to 15% more than Chris' price.I was able to get 2 lazy susans, spice rack, pull out drawers with utensil cans, soft close drawers and doors, food panty with pull-out drawers that also feature soft close, wine cabinet to store wine glasses underneath as well as wine for stocking purpose. All of the options I wanted Chris was able to stay under budget.
I could not be more pleased with my new kitchen. It looks like something you'd see in a magazine. I showed Chris some photos that I found on Houzz and he was able to accomplish that by making my kitchen look super beautiful.
Beside his work, he is a very nice gentleman. I'm a widow and have 3 young children. My husband passed away at age 43. Chris took great care of us all during his time working on my house. I will hire him back to remodel upstairs in a year or two when I save up more money. He is someone you can also trust to do all these things. We both became good friends afterward.
I have attached few photos of my new kitchen.
Please consider him for any of your projects.
