Recent Review: The project went really well and we love the new kitchen! The house is over 100 years old and the existing kitchen was long and narrow with an inefficient design. It was dark and musty with old metal cabinets and a sloping floor. We found Burke Construction on Angie's list and made arrangements to meet with Jeremy, the owner of the company late in 2013. When he came to the house we told him our thoughts and he made some suggestions as to how we could rearrange the kitchen layout to make it more functional. He brought an interior designer along for the second meeting who offered some additional ideas for brightening and modernizing the space, while keeping it in harmony with the rustic feel of the house. Once we decided on a basic plan, Jeremy got back to us in a few days with a reasonably priced proposal that included several optional items; some of which we kept and others we did not. He helped us keep our costs down by steering us to suppliers having sales (cabinets) or offering lower prices than competitors. For the granite counters, once we decided what we wanted, he arranged to get the same stone for $2,250 less than what was quoted us by a popular local business. With the age of the house, the workers ran into some challenges that required extra work, especially relating to leveling the floor and ceiling. They performed the necessary remediations at a nominal cost; and in some cases charged us nothing at all. The various sub-contractors all seemed to take pride in their work and went the extra mile to do a quality job. One of them told me they'd never seen a job as complex as this. While we met most of the sub-contractors, Jeremy was the primary person we dealt with. He was always accessible and returned our calls promptly. He is professional, reliable, well-educated and just a real nice guy who is easy to talk to and nice to have around. He definitely knows his business and showed a genuine curiosity about the construction of the house. On several occasions he took the time to investigate things outside the scope of the project (electric, roofing, attic access, air conditioning) in order to answer questions for us. The project took a couple weeks longer to complete than was originally estimated, but this was largely due to the fact that this is a vacation house and we live two hours away, so we weren't able to readily meet with him as questions arose that required us to be on-premise. In any case, Jeremy knew we needed the house to be ready for summer rentals and the kitchen was finished just in time. We're very happy to have found Burke Construction and they will definitely be our go-to guys for future home-improvement projects.
