Description of Work
TOOK WEEKS TO GET A RETURN CALL AFTER LEAVING A MESSAGE REQUESTING AN ESTIMATE ON WORK WE WANTED DONE. FINALLY GOT A CALL BACK FROM SOMEONE WHO COULDN'T ANSWER OUR QUESTIONS AND HAD TO GET BACK TO US. THEY REFUSED TO TRAVEL TO OUR HOME TO EVEN LOOK A THE PROJECT WE WERE CONSIDERING, AND BLINDLY QUOTED $150,000.00 WITHOUT EVEN MEETING WITH US TO DISCUSS OR DRAW UP THE PROJECT.

Dear (removed member name), My records indicate that your significant other left a voicemail on 8/23 and I responded on 8/27. I am sorry we don’t travel out to Cambridge for any of our projects. We have found that the costs associated with traveling that far price us out of that area. The work you requested included an addition, including foundation, laundry, bathroom, and a bedroom, with a new entry into the house. Projects with that much work associated, according to the 2014 Cost vs. Value of Madison (http://www.remodeling.hw.net/cost-vs-value/2014/east-north-central/madison-wi/), two-story additions cost an average of $153,836. Even if you look at the project a different way, a family room addition (like a first story addition) $79,961 + Bathroom addition $38,004 + part of a basement remodel $31,320 all add up to $149,285. So I am sorry if our rough numbers over the phone came as a shock to you. We were just using third party estimates to provide you with an idea of what your project could cost. We wanted to be helpful, especially since we are not able to work as far out as Cambridge. We hope you found someone in your area who could help with your remodel. Best wishes on your remodeling project!

It went well. There were a few things they needed to come back and fix. Great at helping me pick out colors, tile, hardwear, lights, granite and cabinet. Also had a few good ideas for rearranging the bathroom that didn't end up working out. All in all, good job, pleasant people.

It was a pretty substantial remodel. They did great work and the design of the work was great. Their craftsmanship, their meeting with us to make the changes and everything about them was really great.

It could not have gone better. We had our entire kitchen remodeled as well as one bathroom. Jeff and Michelle are professional, courteous, honest, hard working, punctual, straightforward, and the workmen they hire are the same. We still can't believe we stumbled upon them at the remodeling show and were intelligent enough to choose them over all the other vendors. As soon as we decide to do other projects in our house, we're calling them back. If you are looking to remodel any area of your home, give them a call. They have an amazing book of before and after photos. Pretty soon we'll be in that book!! They've also won many awards in their industry. Ask them to see photos of their castle bathroom -- one of the many projects for which they received awards. Jeff and Michelle know what they're doing, they know which companies to call for their various projects, such as flooring, countertops, windows, etc. And, if something goes wrong during your project, they'll deal with it. Promptly and efficiently. And easily. They only utilize professional and excellent suppliers, and they pass on their knowledge to their clients. Therefore you - their client -- benefit from their very high standards. Your house will reflect this as well. We now have an absolutely amazing kitchen and bathroom. We feel as though we've moved somewhere else!! Hire them.
