    Meridian Construction
    We recently hired Meridian to renovate our unfinished basement. Meridian���s support for the entire project was outstanding. The design phase included multiple meetings to discuss our plans for the space. Co-owner, Larry, and designer, Austin, were a pleasure to work with. They were very flexible about meeting times. They created multiple potential floor plans in order to provide us with options and came up with creative ideas to fit in everything on our wish list. They were patient during the meetings, spending over an hour many days to walk through each room and move features on the floor plan to let us evaluate different looks. They utilize a 3D computer program that really helped us to visualize the rooms and make better decisions. They offered suggestions based on their wealth of knowledge and experience when we requested advice. At all times, Larry was clear about all charges associated with the different design stages. They considered and discussed with us every detail of the rooms with respect to space, architectural elements, cabinetry, heating/cooling, plumbing and electrical. They also kept in mind our budget and were careful to point out to us when the design or scope changes we requested were going to make the project more expensive. We were also extremely impressed with Meridian during the building phase. When selecting fixtures, cabinets, tile, granite, etc., Larry gave us the budget for each item, steered us to vendors and handpicked employees at the vendors to help us make choices. Co-owner, Mick, and the carpentry team, Matt, Dave and Leo, were again an absolute pleasure to work with. They were kind, considerate, punctual, professional and respectful of our family and home. They laid down tarps every day to ensure that dust and dirt from the basement would not be tracked through the main floor. Every subcontractor was punctual, professional and did excellent work. On days when only the subcontractors worked, someone from Meridian still came over in the morning to lay down the tarps and meet the subcontractors. They then returned in the afternoon to survey the day���s work and pick up the tarps. We were especially pleased with the excellent quality of the work, the attention to detail, and the fact that the carpenters continued to design as they built. The build team was very experienced, and it shows. For example, we had wainscoting installed throughout the basement, and every inch of trim work is straight and perfect. When Matt encountered something in the design plan that he didn���t think would translate well in construction, he called the office and discussed it with Austin. Austin then redesigned that element with input from Matt so that every detail was perfect and the transitions from room to room flowed beautifully. Before they left, they went around the basement, inspected their work and touched up every tiny imperfection they saw. A week later, when our furniture arrived, and the delivery men nicked the paint and trim work in multiple places down the stairs, the Meridian guys came back and touched it all up promptly with no extra charge to us. Communication between Meridian and the customer is outstanding. Larry held weekly meetings with us to discuss upcoming work and finalize plans. He and Austin also kept in touch with us through e-mail during the week, if needed. We honestly didn���t think that this level of service existed anymore, but Meridian was a very pleasant surprise. It is clear that they take great pride in their work, and our finished basement exceeded our expectations. I am an epic worrier, and perhaps the greatest compliment I can bestow on Meridian is that I did not worry about our basement renovation for one minute of the 9 weeks it took to complete. We would not hesitate to hire them again.

    Elaine Bassill Design
    I recently had the pleasure of working directly with Elaine Bassill of Elaine Bassill Design. If you are looking for a truly unique experience with a kitchen and bath designer, you must consider Elaine. Elaine brings a broad tapestry of attributes that I've never experienced with other designers I've worked with. First, she is a classically trained and educated Architect who just has a great feel for what will work and what will compliment any new construction or remodeling projects. Next, she has an artistic flair that combined with her architectural background delivers truly awe inspiring results. Anyone will be "wowed" with the finished product. Finally, she is refreshingly honest and will appropriately guide you in your decision making. Bottom line the design will be the absolute best it can be, wether it's for the next 20 years or an immediate resale. Last, Elaine's attention to detail and me, the end customer we're superb. She is a tireless professional who truly loves what she does and was always available regardless of how trivial the issue. I can't wait to work with her again and would happily recommend and endorse her for your next project.

    Meridian Construction

    We met with Larry and were instantly impressed with his professionalism, his attention to detail, and his no-pressure approach.  After several meetings/discussions over the course of a several month period, we decided to officially move forward with having Larry design our potential addition.  Larry went through our current house, made note of our likes/dislikes of the current house and discussed our desires/priorities in terms of a new addition.  He then designed several options, presented them to us, and listened to our thoughts on each one.  Larry then tweaked his designs based upon our comments and presented the final plan for the addition (in 2D and 3D) along with price estimates.

    We were very pleased with the service that Larry provided, his attention to detail, and the professionalism with which he conducted his business. .

    Meridian Construction
    I've used Meridian Construction for several projects beginning back in ~1990 when they added a patio to our house.  We moved in 1994 and we had them do a similar patio at our new house (~1996).  In 2003 I had them help renovate my office. This project included an architect and local zoning restrictions which added time and changes to original plans. They were always cooperative and helpful and making sure the changes were done correctly.  That project cost over $75,000 and I couldn't imagine anyone else doing the job.



    Since then they have replaced over 20  windows (2011) and last year converted an office room into a smaller room and added an ADA compliant bathroom. 



    Their most recent job this summer  (replacing an existing rubber roof with new material) was done with no surprises and their work was clean and they took the required precautions in dealing with lead paint.  They always leave the site clean and make sure they don't disrupt any activity that may be going on (patient care) while they are on-site.

    Meridian Construction
    I Went to Meridian Construction because they sold Wellborn Cabinets and we were familiar with this product  We were getting ready to remodel our kitchen and wanted to purchase these cabinets.. I quickly learned from Larry, the owner, that Meridian Construction could also design my kitchen plans and offer me the added benefit of detailing my plans on a computer program in addition to paper blueprints. Larry sat with me for over an hour on my first visit and  explained in detail what his plan would include. He was told that my brother was our contractor. This did not deter his enthusiasm to work with us.  I made a second visit with my husband and we quickly agreed we wanted Larry and Meridian to design our dream kitchen. I met  with him several more time just to discuss what I wanted in my kitchen and what were the most important  items to be included in the plans. He met us at our house and was very honest with us in discussing what we could and couldn't do within our budget or framework of the current kitchen. He developed a blueprint that we were thrilled with and then shared it with our contractor and worked closely with them and respected their opinions,  He planned to change our huge window into a sliding door  and increased our cabinet space by removing our sofits, changing the window over the sink and just slightly moving the entry way to dining room to allow more wall space. My number one request was an island. This was a huge project because of the layout of the room. He was able to do it and make the kitchen appear larger at the same time. Larry used a simulator computer program to show my husband and I what each change or addition would look like.
    Once the design was set Larry was instrumental in helping us choose each piece of cabinetry and discussed the pros and cons of each piece. He used his design program to show what each piece would look like and would add and delete things so we always knew what it would look like in our kitchen. We never had to guess or imagine what our kitchen would look like, we could see it!
    Throughout the entire process Larry always kept us informed of pricing and never just wanted to sell us the more expensive items. He went out of his way to discuss costs of parts of project he wasn't providing such granite, flooring and appliances. He referred us to businesses for these items and we were very happy with all of them. Larry kept in close contact with us once the construction began and made himself accessible to our contractors.
    My husband and I were extremely pleases with Meridian Construction, Larry and his staff. We both agreed we would can on him again for other projects and refer him to friends. I had a good friend along with me for many of our meetings and she agreed she would call on him when it is time to do her kitchen!

    Meridian Construction
    This is the second project where we have used Meridian.  I reviewed them on Angie?s List in 2011 for the exceptional job they did with our master bathroom and thought it was important to review them again because our experience the second time was just as exceptional. Instead of repeating all the wonderful things I said in my 2011 review I thought it might be more helpful to share some other benefits we have gained from our relationship with Meridian. Over time we have used Meridian (Larry and Mick) as a place we can call, and trust, when issues occur in our home that need immediate attention (sewer ejector pump, hot water heater, leaky window, etc.).  One phone call to Larry and he has a competent professional come out right away to address our situation. The costs have also been very reasonable.  On several occasions we have spent time with Larry discussing other potential projects and have actually gone through the specific design process without any pressure to hire them or to have the project take place in the immediate future. The design process has always been a pleasure with Meridian, and it is very important to us. We find that it is essential as it enhances our understanding of the options, scope of the work, and the costs.  We also believe this is what helped us to complete 2 projects with no surprises. The no pressure, very detailed design process was a really good way for us to get to know Meridian and is what convinced us to hire them in the first place.  We are currently building a vacation home quite a distance away from Meridian?s locale but we plan to use them for the cabinetry in the home because we are impressed with their experience in this area and the quality of the Wellborn cabinets they use.

    Meridian Construction
    Our experience with Meridian was exceptional. From the beginning, they were very patient and engaging. We made the decision to first hire Meridian for the design process.  We were looking for a contractor that would work well with us, who we felt had the right expertise, and who paid attention to the details. The design process gave us a real opportunity see if Meridian met these needs. Meridian not only met these needs, but they exceeded them. 

    Once we hired Meridian for the remodel work, we experienced the great care they had in getting the job done right, choosing the right materials, and avoiding change orders.  Their communication was constant, open and productive to keeping us aware of our costs, where we stood in the project, and in managing our expectations.  This was crucial for what could be a potentially stressful process.

    Another important factor in a project like this, is the comfort with the actual work and workers while in our home.  The individuals that worked directly for Meridian, and their subcontractors, treated both us, and our home, with respect. They each took a lot of care in making sure our home was kept clean, they were very professional, and very pleasant.     
    All of this said, the final outcome is that we love our beautiful, newly remodeled, master bath! It truly turned out beyond our expectations.

    Most of our interactions during this project was with Larry Giannone. We truly appreciated his dedication, communication, attention to detail, and professionalism.  Larry did an amazing job at making this a successful relationship and a fabulous outcome.

    These days it is not easy to make the decision to engage in a project that could have a high price tag, but we truly enjoy our new bathroom, it not only enhanced our home?s worth, but we sincerely appreciate it, and enjoy it every day.  We also feel we made a friend with Meridian, and would not hesitate to hire them for all our future needs.
