When we moved into our home 7 years ago, we immediately loved it, but also saw the changes we wanted to make to have it be “ours”. We started our first smaller project 4 years ago with Davis Renovations, to relocate and replace our front door, and re-do our front porch, including stacked stone and beautiful iron rails. It turned out so beautifully and Chip and his crew were so great to work with, we knew that in the future, Chip would be with whom we would work again.
Fast forward to present day and we were ready to move forward with the biggie we had been dreaming about since the day we moved in. We wanted to update the main living area of our home, removing load-bearing walls and consolidating 4 rooms into one main living space: kitchen, living room, dining room and entry. We knew Chip was the only person we could trust with such a scary endeavor!
From beginning to end, Chip and his team of professionals helped us make what we had in our minds a reality. He listened and understood exactly what we wanted, explained what we didn’t understand (which was a lot!), answered all our questions (which were many) and gave excellent recommendations on how to give us what we wanted. His wife Cathy, who in an interior designer, even helped give us different layout options of how we could make it all happen. Every single person who came to do work at our home was top notch: carpenters, hardwood floor, electricians, plumber, granite installation, etc. Truly, Chip uses no less than the best. Every day, I knew who was coming to my house, what time they would be there, and what they would be completing that day. I knew every step along the way, what was happening, when and why. We never had a lapse of time where work wasn’t happening (I have heard horror stories of other friends going weeks on end in mid-renovation with no work).
Our home has simply turned out beautifully. Better than we even could have imagined. Chip’s attention to details is remarkable and it shows in his work. What should have been such a painful process really was quite easy. Chip helped us move our refrigerator out to the garage and we set up a makeshift kitchen and we made-do until our kitchen was functional again. We ate out a lot, but we survived (and helped out the local economy!).
At the end of all of this, I can truly see why the right choice of contractor is so paramount if you are considering any remodeling: there are so many moving parts and you MUST have the right person you can trust to help you navigate such an extremely complex process. I can recommend Davis Renovation with NO hesitation and personally will only use them on any project we complete in the future, as I know the job is always going to be done in the best way possible.
