Hire Hassle Free Home Improvements. Mickey (who runs the company), his team, and his company are top notch. They delivered a total kitchen renovation on budget and in only five weeks. Our old kitchen had original... everything. Cabinets, countertops, sink. It was cramped, poorly laid out, and falling apart. When we started planning our kitchen renovation, we sought out bids from four well-reviewed companies. Here's what we liked best about Mickey and the Hassle Free team: 1. Mickey was willing to get specific about both plans and costs before we signed a contract. I appreciated having a firm sense of what our renovation would cost -- before I wrote a large check to get started. That wasn't possible with some other contractors, who wanted us to sign a contract with a proposed budget range of several thousand dollars that might fluctuate depending on our choices over the course of the project. Negotiating with details involved was a lot more up front work for Mickey, but it made me feel much more secure about the kitchen we'd be getting. 2. Mickey's team included a kitchen designer, who visited our home and drew up a plan based on his expertise, as well as our preferences. Other companies asked what we wanted and tried to conform their plans to just those ideas. That's fine, but what do I know about designing an optimal kitchen? I appreciated that Kevin, Mickey's kitchen designer, made suggestions about how to lay out our kitchen differently -- and better -- than I had imagined. The day he visited our home and walked us through an alternate design, it felt like a huge weight lifted off of my shoulders because we had someone with genuine experience to help us with the very important task of sorting out how to lay out the new kitchen. 3. Steve, Mickey's foreman, is amazing. Steve's work is very good, he is responsive to questions and comments, and he keeps the job moving forward. I work from home a lot, so I was around during much of the renovation. Steve was unfailingly happy to answer my frequent questions and to make small fixes as the work went along. He and his team also did incredible work. Our backsplash tile is pretty detailed, and the skillfulness of the tile cutting and setting made for quite a dramatic effect. 4. Budget and timing. Conventional wisdom says that you should budget for a kitchen renovation to run 20% over budget. Crazy. Our kitchen renovation was 100% on budget -- the only additional charge we encountered was when we decided to add more lighting than originally included in our contract. The additional cost was reasonable. As for timing, our renovation took only five weeks from Day 1 of demolition to the day Steve told me I could start putting things in the cabinets. It's practically unheard of for a kitchen renovation to be completed so quickly. 5. Quality. Kevin and Mickey helped us select quality cabinets, countertops, and hardware that were the right balance of high end details and construction and affordability to fit our budget. I really value that Hassle Free could facilitate our desire for both quality and cost-consciousness. I'd absolutely hire Hassle Free Home Improvements again. They are first rate.
