Kitchen Remodeling – Audrey G.
“We interviewed 5 different remodeling companies in which 4 were close to our home. Normandy is quite a distance from us and that was originally a concern. Would they know the local codes? Would their staff have to travel far and not be available for last minute issues, etc.? We truly wouldn’t know until we started the project.
What sealed the deal for us and allowed us to be comfortable to sign on the dotted line occurred after our 1st meeting with Normandy’s designer Liz Reifschneider. Many designers have exquisite taste, and their projects can end up being quite nice, but sometimes the end result can represent more the designer’s personality then the clients.
We weren’t sure exactly what we wanted, but once we shared with Liz the type of lifestyle we live (a lot of casual entertaining) and showed her items in our house that reflect our personalities, she was able to put together our dream kitchen (as close to our budget as possible). There was an actual time we were vacillating between 2 totally different styles. Unknown to us at the time, we were leaning towards a design that truly didn’t flow with the rest of our house, or our personalities. Liz kept us on the right path. Looking at the finished kitchen, we are so grateful she did!
Our worries about hiring Normandy because their home office/showroom was far from our home turned out to be unnecessary. Steve Maro headed our project which included a total kitchen remodel and new floors throughout most of the first level. His years of expertise, eye for detail, high bar of excellence, ability to keep the project on schedule, deal with unexpected issues in a fair and professional manner, help us live in the house throughout the project as comfortably as possible…and much more…exceeded our expectations. Each person in his crew were professional, skilled and cleaned up after each day’s work. Normandy even provided restroom items for their crew such as paper towels, bathroom freshener, hand soap and a waste basket!!!
Normandy had checks and balances in place for our project. Being a very organized company helped to keep problems at a minimum. And, when an issue occurred, they were trustworthy and corrected the problem.
If you haven’t already guessed, we give Normandy a huge thumbs up! Thank you Liz, Steve and the Normandy team! We LOVE our new kitchen!!!”Read more like this: Liz Reifschneider
