Our project manager was Chad Smith. He was attentive and sensitive to our needs as homeowners who must live in the home while it is being remodeled. He seems to run a tight ship with regard to scheduling, and made sure that there was very little, if any, down-time once the project began. He visited often to check on the workmanship, and is very knowledgeable about how things should be done and how they should look. All the demolition, repairs and restructuring were expertly done by skilled employees who know what they are doing and do it well. One of the many benefits of having a remodel done by Jansen's is that they order the cabinets from a superior cabinet maker, Starmark Cabinetry in our case, and the quality of the cabinets will not disappoint. It takes approximately 6 weeks for the cabinets to be custom made and shipped from Starmark's factory in South Dakota. Jansen does not schedule the project to begin until the cabinets have arrived and are stored in their warehouse. We chose maple cabinetry in a Villa Ivory finish that is beautiful and appears to be quite durable. We opted for tile that looks exactly like dark wood flooring, and chose a tile backsplash that brings together the colors of the cabinetry, the granite countertops, the flooring and the stainless steel appliances. Our new kitchen includes a chimney type stainless stove hood that is vented through the attic and out the roof. All the walls in the foyer, living room and kitchen were painted by one of Jansen's professional painters with colors that we chose. Our project took about 4 weeks. We understand that many kitchen projects, depending on size, take longer. If you must live in your home during a remodeling project, be prepared for a lot of dust. This is especially true when tile has to be removed. Jansen's makes every effort to confine and remove the dust as quickly as possible, but it will penetrate through the HVAC system no matter how many plastic sheet barriers are erected. Your normal life WILL be disrupted during the project and there is no way to get out of that. Chad Smith, our project manager, showed great understanding of the homeowner's dilemma and made sure that all employees clean up the area before leaving each day. The employees of Jansen's Quality Construction create quality in everything that they do. You will not get a cut-rate price, nor will you get a cut-rate job. What you will receive is a lot of focus on detail and on making sure that you are pleased with your remodel. We are thrilled with the final result, and are now able to enjoy a new, beautiful, and user-friendly kitchen.
