7 Reviews for Filla Green Design + Build
I hired Filla to do a remodel to my 100 year old house. We didn't add any square footage, just removed/added walls to make the existing space more usable. I remodeled the kitchen, added a mud room, remodeled the bathroom, and replaced windows and exterior doors. It was a very significant project. I was extremely impressed with Filla's customer service--it was outstanding; owner Stephen Filla was an excellent communicator. He was patient with all of my questions and was very detailed when he conveyed information. He always responded to any concerns quickly and thoroughly. If he didn't have an answer, he would go to considerable effort to get it and always with a great attitude. Filla's craftsmanship was outstanding. They went above-and-beyond to replicate woodwork and other details so that there were no "seams" between the old and new within my house. An example is that Stephen hunted to find millwork that would match my existing just perfectly. Also, if they found shortcomings in the original work of the house (i.e. framing, insulation), they would correct them. They definitely provided me with a house that was structurally stronger and better. Additionally, the remodeled spaces are visually beautiful. I continue to receive compliments from visitors on how well it all turned out. I would definitely recommend Filla Green Design + Build and would use them again for future projects.
Comment from Filla Green Design + Build:
Thank you so much Lisa! We're so glad you were happy with the results and process of your project. Here's a link to the photos from Lisa's completed project for anyone interested: http://www.houzz.com/projects/814194/1917-seward-bungalow
Our project involved a complete "to the studs" renovation of a kitchen and den, including window and door replacement, new cabinets, floors, electrical, plumbing and walls. We went into the process with a pretty well defined plan (but not professionally done!) so it posed some constraints on Stephen Filla and his team. Steve was able to contribute valuable design advice, help resolve design issues, and produce a final product that exceeded our expectations. The whole process was painless - despite being without a kitchen for just over a month. The subcontractors were easy to work with, pleasant, and always on time, and exhibited true craftsmanship - a significant result when working with a 60+ year old space. Steve kept us well informed on schedules and on the impacts of numerous changes that occurred along the way. No surprises! Despite numerous "in process" changes. We are very pleased with the final results, and would recommend Filla Green Design Build without hesitation.
I have worked with Filla for many years, on various jobs in my home. They are friendly, thorough, professional and the results are always better than I would hope. They listen so intently and have creative, thoughtful ways to meet my needs, within my budget. They are problem solving geniuses. They always give a fair bid and in my case come in under what they had predicted it would cost. What stands out years later, is the little things. The attention to detail, the quality of the job and how happy I am with the project years later. I have referred them again and again. -Laura
I've used Filla Design a few times and have recommended them to friends and family multiple times. I love working with the team at Filla Design. They're always polite, care about my needs, have a wealth of knowledge and the work is top-notch.
Filla Green Design helped me redo my kitchen. I chose this firm because of their excellent communication skills. They listened to me and followed through with my ideas while adding their own. Without changing the footprint, we increased the storage space, the counter space, and also blended the decor with the rest of my small house. The work was done in a timely manner, and all the subcontractors were respectful and efficient. I am very happy with the result - the kitchen looks as if it has always been there.
Filla Green Design and Build has completed a number of projects for me. They range from minor carpentry projects to kitchen remodeling. No matter the scope of the project, Tom and his team have produced above and beyond results in a timely, proficient and respectful manner. I have recommended his services to a number of friends and associates.
