Had our kitchen remodeled, All new floors throughout the house and 4 rooms painted. Everything looks beautiful. The crews that worked in our house were all friendly great guys who knew what they were doing. The electricians that they contracted out to do our electric work was some of the nicest guys we’ve ever had do work for us. Eric the project manager was great. The few things that we were not happy with, he corrected right away with no problem at all. He went out of his way to make sure we were satisfied. And I want to give a shout out to Jennifer Caladano who helped us design our kitchen right from the get go.
First Rate All the Way !!!
with our recent kitchen renovation. Our kitchen was old and needed to be brought up to date (cabinets, appliances, lightening, flooring, and floor plan). From the onset at the planning stage both Jason Solomon (Monk’s Sales) and Marien Ronan (Monk’s designer) offered invaluable suggestions which we took advantage of and worked with us to manage the space effectively. At the conclusion of planning, the drawings produced by Marien met all our expectations.
Once the work began Nelson Santiago, (Monk’s PM), managed the job better than expected. He managed and kept all teams on point (Cabinetry, Electricians, Stone, and General work teams) moving forward safely during COVID-19. This included ordering additional materials mid-stream to manage slight deviations is workmanship. The job was estimated at 6 weeks (start to finish) and this schedule was achieved which very much pleased us. In addition, the cost fell within our expected budget (labor + materials).
I have used Monk’s now for several projects and would consider using them again in the future as I feel they are very reliable.
The end-state matched our original drawings perfectly making this experience very rewarding for us.
We are very pleased with the workmanship and professionalism Monk’s staff bring to a home improvement project.
