We choose Bart Mellott and his company, Renovation Systems, to do an
extensive remodel of our home during 2007. Bart had completed an earlier
project on our house with great success and we trusted his skill in all aspects of
renovation and his ability to conduct such a project to an excellent finish.
The 2007 project included a total remodel of our kitchen including raising the
old dropped ceiling, new under cabinet and ceiling lighting, new power outlets,
rerouted A/C vents, all new cabinets, new Silestone countertops and a new sink,
garbage disposal and water filter. There was also extensive work in all other
rooms in the house including living room, dining area, bedrooms, baths, A/C
closet and the garage. The project involved structural framing and finishing;
installation of new exterior windows; interior trim work including crown molding,
baseboards and interior doors; plumbing changes; electrical work; custom tiling
in kitchen and baths; painting and other skills required in a major renovation.
Bart consulted with us in the design and planning of the renovation and we
trusted his judgment in proposing excellent and workable solutions. Bart
conducted the year-long project in a professional and business-like manner and
we were always comfortable with the costs, the schedule and the progress.
Work that Bart did not do himself was subcontracted to capable helpers or
independent contractors. Bart is highly skilled and all work was planned and
executed to high standards of craftsmanship. Bart is easy to work with and he
often consulted with us on improvements to the design, the architectural
features and the colors and textures. We altered the scope of the project a
couple of times during the year and found Bart accommodating of the changes
and reasonable in his prices.
At the end of the renovation the house was beautiful and we were completely
satisfied with all aspects of the work. We felt that Bart was as much a partner in
the renovation as he was the contractor. We would not hesitate to recommend
Bart and Renovation Systems for a project of any size, scope or complexity.
