This was the second job that we hired Joel and his crew to do: The first was a bathroom remodel in 2014, and that was such a positive experience for us that we had zero hesitation asking Joel to do our kitchen remodel as well. Like the bathroom, this was a full demolition, down to the studs, and a rebuild from scratch. We used Homecrest cabinets, Cambria synthetic quartz countertops, and Armstrong luxury vinyl floors, and installed an externally vented range hood. All were installed with precision and impressive attention to detail. Unusual items on this job were a Fisher-Paykel drawer dishwasher, which required custom cabinet work, and a backsplash made with hand-made tile imported from Spain. The tile is not only expensive, but it's difficult to deal with, since every tile is slightly different from every other tile. I'm pretty sure that a contractor of lesser skill would have been entirely unable to deal with the installation, but Derek's tilework was flawless, and made the space extraordinary. (We especially appreciated Karl's inventive and artistic touches with the paint! ) The work crew, led by Derek, was unfailingly punctual, neat, and polite. We really appreciated the lack of cigarette smoke of any kind, even in the yard. We had no qualms about leaving Derek with a house key and leaving town for a week while construction was underway, and we were not disappointed: the crew acted with perfect responsibility at all times. Sullivan Interior Finishing is highly recommended. No, they're not cheap, but you get every bit of what you pay for.
