I was very happy with Improve America. Mel Medaris was very professional and he clearly conveyed how he would perform the work. His work crew showed up timely and worked efficiently to finish the job. They were sticklers for quality as was Mr. Medaris. We are extremely happy with the finished product as well as the process to get there. I have since recommended Mr. Medaris to others who have simil...

Mel and his Team are wonderful at what they do and at a reasonable price. They did a few jobs for me and are always the first I call when I have other projects in mind I need quoted. I can’t wait to let them make my next home improvement dream come true.

Mel and his team did a great job. Communication with Mel was very good. His crews arrived on time daily. The rough carpenters did a great job. The electrician and carpenters arrived on time, completed their work quickly. Michael, the finisher, is a REALLY talented guy. He pulled the work of the other groups together and completed the project.

These folks were great to deal with and understood each part of the process. If there was a hall of fame for customers, they would be inducted on the first try. This was a great experience for us and they got an upstairs bath that they needed.

We appreciate this customer as she is a health care worker and on the front lines of the battle with the pandemic. We trust she got the kitchen of her dreams as we removed a dividing wall in a 60's era home and made a huge, open and attractive space for cooking and entertaining.

These folks were very nice and understanding throughout the whole construction process.They knew what they wanted and made it easy for us to know how to complete the project. If you had to clone the ideal customers, they would be great candidates. They have since recommended ImproveAmerica to other folks in the neighborhood.

In the first place, I contacted Mrs. [Member Name Removed] the very day I received the invitation to bid. I went by and took measurements that day and told her I would get back to her the "first of the week". She mistook that for MONDAY and promptly called me Tuesday morning and said she did not want the quote that I lied to her about calling. I don't know what her problem is but ,Thankfully, we d...

This project went very smoothly. From the first appointment, Mel was very professional and did all the measurements for the project. When I decided to select him for the project, we discussed some changes I wanted, then scheduled the project. When they started the project was started, the material was already delivered and available. The actual construction was delayed a little because of weather ...
