Description of work:
We contracted JK Remodeling to perform an extensive remodel of our kitchen and bathroom, as well as several related projects in our dining room, living room and hallway.
The project demolition included: removal of wood flooring in dining room, living room and hallway, removal of tile flooring in kitchen and bath, removal of cabinets, countertops, appliances and fixtures in kitchen and bathroom, removal of wall dividing kitchen and dining room, removal of drywall to the studs in bathroom, removal of 6 doors and door frames, and removal of all baseboard trim in kitchen, dining room, living room hallway and bathroom.
We had four different contractors come in to quote the job listed above, and out of all of them, Jack [Kowalczyk, the owner] from JK Remodeling came back to us with what we considered the best quote overall. He was not the least expensive but we were impressed with his attention to detail, the thoroughness of his quote and his ability to answer the questions we had about the project.
The project was quoted to last about seven weeks and Jack's team completed the job on schedule. All in all the project went pretty much as planned.
