The response time for the initial quote was very quick. We had good communication with the project coordinator. The colors came out looking just the way we hoped. The crew on site was efficient and very professional.
On the plus side, they did a great job of properly priming all the new siding I had on the house, which was quite a bit. The applied all the stain by hand, which I prefer. My neighbor gets it done with a sprayer and it always seems too thin and doesn't seem to last as long. There was no mess of any kind before, during or after the job.
The only concern I had, and perhaps this was my own fault for not clarifying ahead of time, was some of the caulking on the older cedar siding. I had assumed that when caulking was included in the quote, they would take care of any gaps in the siding that can happen as the cedar dries over time. While they did caulk all the trim pieces and edges, they didn't do the siding in between. Maybe I just assumed that and needed to spell it out. But that was my only criticism of the job.
I would certainly use them again, I would just be clearer on my expectations.

We love our new kitchen! Most folks comment on the zebra bamboo floors first - but when I mention that the custom cherry cabinets were originally in someone else's kitchen and purchased from Craigslist - they are totally amazed!

(

) is a joy to work with. We began working together for our bathroom remodel (see my other review for Riverside), but we originally found him because we wanted someone who would be able to rework the cabinets we'd purchased through Craigslist. He was installing the new cabinets in the home where we purchased our cabinets (homeowners were adding onto their house, enlarging the kitchen and wanted light colored cabinets). In any case, while working on the bathroom we had time to toss ideas back and forth about how we might modify the cabinets we'd purchased to fit our needs. He removed our old cabinets, demo'd the soffit and repaired the sheetrock. He installed zebra bamboo hardwood floors, (and, later, painted and reinstalled the base boards and installed bamboo quarter-round as well as cherry heat vent covers which he finished.) He installed 6 recessed lights, the pendant over the sink, the island light and the new fan/light (on an adjustable wall switch) and replaced the ceiling fixture in the utility room. He also added several new receptacles (including one on the front porch) and switches and moved many others. He also installed the undercabinet lighting (came with the cabinets). He relocated my phone line to another wall. The sink wall was the only wall where the cabinets, as purchased, wouldn't fit our kitchen.

had to cut down one upper cabinet and extend another so that they would fit our space. He also installed shelves in the lower cabinet areas to the right of the sink in order to fill in the space where my window (and therefore the sink) was 9 inches further left than in the original. I found baskets 8 x 18 inch baskets online to fit these shelves. Also, the original cabinets had routed end panels which had to be filled and covered in cherry veneer, stained, and varnished (in our kitchen we had to swap sides for some of the cabinets - so what was a finished end before was now an unfinished end, etc.). We had extra space on the interior (refrigerator) wall so he built me a pantry with several electrical outlets and a light with switch, installed plywood shelves, and veneered the exposed sides of those as well. I ordered a cherry door for the pantry - he stained and finished that and built a door frame for it. He added three toe kick drawers to one cabinet so that I had out-of-the-way storage for my cutting boards and cookie sheets. We were installing new cherry crown molding - he fabricated the buildup, stained, finished and installed all of it. He installed my new faucet (after granite installation), installed a new push button for disposal and relocated the dishwasher from right to left of sink. He installed the new microwave (came with cabinets) over the new gas range (newly purchased) which he ran the gas line for (we previously had electric range). He installed a new 20 amp circuit for the microwave/gas range and ran two new electric lines. He installed soft-close mechanisms on all the cabinet doors. He painted the kitchen and the utility room and installed our limestone backsplash. I'm sure there are lots of details I've left out - but we couldn't recommend him more highly. It was really hard once he finished the job and we knew we wouldn't see him every day - we threatened to hang a Christmas stocking for him! We had one cabinet door that needed to be made to order on the cabinet that was reworked. He interviewed several cabinet makers, took one of the original doors to them with the specs to have them get one, took the stain to them when the door arrived, and then, when they couldn't get the finish to turn out the right color, went and bought the correct finish and took it to them. Then picked up the finished door and came out that evening to install it prior to a party we were having the following afternoon. He really stands by his work and will do anything for his customers!

This was our first experience with completely gutting and remodeling a room.

made it very easy. He seems to really enjoy what he does. Every step of the way he kept us advised on the schedule. He took time to show us each stage he completed and what he was doing to provide the best quality installation.
We went from an old ugly, literally falling apart bathroom to one that is simply beautiful.
On our long term plan is another bathroom remodel and a kitchen makeover. We would not even consider another contractor at this point.
We are awaiting the custom shower doors. Once those are in I will post follow up 'before' and 'after' pictures.

All work performed in a satisfactory manner; company management followed-up to check on the progress and my happiness with the work. Original windows on 25+-year-old house - - several badly rotted wooden sills and moldings; others just needed minor repair work. All work done professionally and within the time frame of the Angie's List deal.
