Alex is an artist and engineering genius. He is meticulous about every detail and extremely passionate about his work. He listens to your ideas and enhances 'your' dreams of the project. From the first time we met him, he was courteous, incredibly creative and very approachable. He was always timely and phoned if he was running late or needed to reschedule. He and his crew are a pleasure to have in our home. They asked if they could work late or on a weekend (to get the job done!). They always cleaned up after themselves. We were kept up to date on every small detail or change. They also coordinate with our other contractors (i.e. countertop fabricator, flooring, etc.) If there is anything you are not 100% happy with/or would like to change, Alex and his project-manager, Kirill, will strive to exceed your expectations. For example, if a door is not hanging perfectly, Alex and/or Kirill will typically spot it before you will and have it corrected promptly. Our cabinetry looks like high-end furniture with feet (this is an optional design element), glass doors, hand carved elements throughout-by their in-house artists (thank you Ed and Andre'). Our kitchen and additional china cabinets are honestly one-of-a-kind works of art. We considered other contractors for our project, but no other business came close to providing the level of quality, nor were they as devoted to making our dreams come true. Their estimate was at the top of our budget, but we actually got so much more additional cabinetry, lighting, hand carved details, we feel they are competitive in the high end market. We consider Alex (and his colleagues) the Michelangelo of cabinet making. Thank you Alex, Kirill, Bill, Johnny, Ed, Andre, and Slava (and anyone else we neglected to mention). We will post photos with an update when the project is complete.
