It was important to me to have a contractor who would listen. We wanted a nice kitchen, but this is not our forever home and we didn’t want to sink a lot of money into this renovation.
At our first meeting, David took in everything I told him – about the fiscal constraints and about wanting an updated kitchen without being extravagant. He immediately came up with six or seven really great ideas and that told me he was listening. And throughout the renovation, David kept us to the budget we set out originally. He has this tactful way of offering advice that helped me feel confident about the choices and decisions I made with respect to various design options and materials.
David just cares. For example, he worked so hard to fix an issue that wasn’t even his fault. The new countertop had to be made out of three slabs, and the first time the subcontractor installed it, the slabs didn’t match! They tried to tell me that it was the lighting and that everything was fine, but David backed me up. He went to bat for me with the countertop guys and it’s only because of his relentless pressure that they finally got it right and they even gave me a discount for all the trouble and delay they caused.
