A few reviews for this pro...


(This was also posted on Quality Guild site) Working with Wood Wise on our kitchen remodel was a wonderful experience. After listening closely to our ideas and concerns, Kathy provided several design options, and melded them into the final design. Kathy then accompanied me when choosing sinks, faucets, lights, etc., and helped me stay within allowances and get fixtures I love. Ben, the foreman, ke...

Thank you, [Member Name Removed], for the kind words. Our company enjoyed working with you from the initial contact to the design of your great kitchen and through the construction.


The design cost $700 dollars and was just drawings without a lot of detail on materials. I asked for a ballpark estimate of the cost and was quoted $30,000-$50,000. I thought this was extremely expensive. Basically, I felt I overpaid for the drawing. I think the owner makes a lot of money by meeting potential customers and over charging them for design. There was no follow up from Woodwise, I thou...

Thank you, [member name removed], for choosing Wood Wise to remodel your home and for the great review. We enjoyed working with you and Mary.


We had pursued it with them had we chosen to do so. The quote was close to $40000. I would give them an A+.

Description of Work
We had them come in and give us an estimate on a major home renovation project that we ended up not pursuing. It was going to be a third floor renovation.

They were great. They did a great job. They are very professional and timely. They know their subjects - the home improvement. They are fully integrated as a team where they can design the improvement but then also the contractor as well.

Description of Work
Wood Wise Design & Remodeling did consulting for me and I got some price quotes. They prepared five set of plans for our home renovation.

Category remodeling



The owner, designers, and project managers were very helpful and professional. Cabinets, flooring, structural work and painting went very well; countertops went pretty well. We were very unhappy with the electrician they used because of sloppy work (e.g. very visible switchplates were crooked). Other subcontractors were excellent (e.g. painters) and we used them for later work. Because overall we ...

I recommend him to everybody who asks. He was just phenomenal. He is one of the best contractors I have ever had any interaction with. Everything was positive. They are very professional. They have a great design team so they were good at coming up with ideas and things. They actually gave the most detailed proposal in terms of when things would be done and what would be done and the cost of each ...

I used Wood Wise Design & Remodeling to do a full basement remodel.

We were favorably impressed with Wood Wise and so happy with the outcome! Hank (the company owner) worked directly with us to define the scope and terms of the project. This was not a small hurdle considering the mention of Do-It-Yourself scared away a few other companies we had contacted. Even though the arrangement was not their regular modus operandi, they found a way to accommodate us. We did ...

Description of Work
I've already reviewed the design portion of the project. This review is for project implementation. Recessed lights, pendant lights, cabinets, backsplash, crown molding, baseboards, wall and ceiling repair, sink, dishwasher, gas line, island and granite countertops were all installed.

This was the first project I used them for. They have been out to my house twice and I have been to their showroom. They are remodeling the down stairs of my house. They took out a wall, refinished the wood floors, installed storage, installed baseboards and the rest of the general remodel. I will continue to use them in the future.

We really enjoyed working with both Kathy and Hank of Wood Wise. They both worked directly with us to define the scope and terms of the project. This was not a small hurdle considering the mention of Do-It-Yourself scared away a few other companies we had contacted. We are somewhat picky clients and they were both patient and accommodating, going over design after design and negotiating the work t...

Description of Work
Kathy designed six layouts for our kitchen remodel project. Three dimensional views of the installed cabinetry were also provided along with a lighting plan. It's possible the line between the design and remodeling project was blurred because we certainly got more than our money's worth. The project involved installing recessed lights, pendant lights, cabinets, back splash, crown molding, baseboards, wall and ceiling repair, sink, dishwasher, gas line, island and granite counter tops.
