Project: Annette and her husband Anthony both love cooking and Gaudioso Contracting cooked up their dream kitchen, completely gutting the kitchen and starting from scratch.

Approximate cost: $77,000 (not including appliances)

Timeline: Three months

Based on their stellar reviews, I hired Gaudioso Contracting for a complete kitchen renovation, which involved gutting the kitchen, reversing the water and gas lines, sealing and moving windows, installing radiant heat flooring, installing cabinets and molding, painting, lighting, installing a backsplash and more. 

The workers were courteous, neat and competent. They stacked the debris neatly in our driveway until there was enough for a pickup. The workers built custom touches, such as the faux soffit above our fridge and pantry area and the framing in the cutout to our dining room.

I learned how fortunate we were to have found a great contractor when I heard so many horror stories from family and friends. It gives us great pleasure to be able to say we love our contractor!

Kitchen remodel results

My kitchen is the best because we now have a stunningly beautiful, functional kitchen that we spend so much more time in. We hear over and over again how the kitchen and cutout into the dining room have completely transformed our entire main floor. As an added bonus, the cats love the radiant heat flooring. We are already thinking ahead to the next project we want Gaudioso Contracting to complete for us — finishing our basement.
