Home Remodeling – William & Karen D.

“This thank you note is well past due.  My wife Karen and I want to let you know how wonderful Chris Ebert and Al Lovas are.  Our remodel project was a complete success and exceeded our very high expectations.  We had wanted to remodel our house to create an open concept between our kitchen and family room.  Fortunately for us our good friends Ken and Melissa had worked with Chris on a remodel project a few years ago and referred Chris and Normandy to us.  They had such a good result that we called Chris and were confident that our project would be a great success too.  Well it was, but as you go through this process you realize how important it is to be dealing with the best.

We met with Chris and explained our ideas to him. He asked if this was our forever house.  We told him most likely not –  we would most likely move in about five years.  Chris listened.  His ideas and design helped us get what we wanted, but he kept us from spending more than we should with our time horizon.  We exchanged ideas and multiple designs but finally settled on Chris’s original concept.  He guided us through the most cost effective materials and products, showed us where to spend and where to save.   Chris suggested that we paint our dark wood stained trim and doors white – the result is a brand new house.

Al Lovas is the best.  And his crews are the best – Humberto, Craig, Daniel, Gerrard, and the tile guy and his son.   Friendly, skilled, talented, perfectionists – it was like they were doing their own houses.  The attention to detail was terrific.  Throughout the project they came up with smart ideas and recommendations to improve the final product.  When we were about to do something dumb, they explained and showed us what the right way to do it was.  They did this because of the pride they have in the work they do – they wanted it to be right.

Well the finished result is so fantastic. It is like we have a brand new house.  It is functional, it is great for entertaining, it is great for relaxing, it opens up the main living area to light and to our beautiful backyard. It is easy to care for and it has places for us to organize our stuff.  In our old kitchen there was a desk area that was an area that collected all sorts of stuff, much of which was junk. The new kitchen has a huge pantry with shelves and containers to organize items like mail, appliance warranties and instructions, etc etc.  So we keep in an organized way of what we want and we throw away our junk.

We would and will highly recommend Al, Chris and Normandy.

Thank you all very, very much.”
