By John Clay

Tell us a little bit about your company and its foundation.

I am a small remodeling company that got its start in 1990 building trade show exhibits and custom cabinets. I have expanded to be able to help with all your home remolding needs.

What is the first thing you tell people who are looking to remodel their kitchen?

I tell them that I can handle the project turnkey and provide the full range of services that are needed to remodel a kitchen.

When looking at a kitchen for a remodel, what factors do you take into consideration first?

I mainly ask what they are wanting to accomplice. Do they want to change the layout? What cabinet style do you want? What is your budget? This is the time you make the changes to your kitchen that makes it work the way you want.

What are the most popular areas that are considered a waste of space in the kitchen?

Corners cabinets have the most wasted space areas of a kitchen.

What are your personal favorite design elements in a kitchen?

My favorite design element in a kitchen is something that sets it apart from a standard kitchen. For example drawers that are installed in the lower cabinets that allow ease of access to things stored in the base cabinets.

What is your best professional advice for homeowners who are looking to remodel their kitchen?

First of all make sure you have an established company. Do a some checking on who you hire to do the work.

What's the best way for people to get in contact with you or your company?

I have a couple of good ways to contact me. The first is by phone. I will almost always answer. If I don't it means I am either with a customer or hanging off a ladder and can't get to my phone. If I don't answer leave a massage and I will get back to you. The other way is by email.
