I hired Henry for the remodeling of my entire condo after having interviewed four different contractors. Henry got the job not only because he gave me the best estimate, but also because of his personality, and, it was apparent from the beginning, his honesty and integrity. I was very careful in my selection of a contractor, because the one who I had previously hired messed up my kitchen and, in addition, behaved in the most obnoxious manner when confronted with his mistakes. The remodeling of my apartment was not a small job. It entailed fixing of the messed-up kitchen, redoing from scratch the bathroom and powder room, redoing the laundry room, remodeling the walk in closet, redoing the closets including the doors, changing the carpet to hard wood floors, painting the entire apartment, and putting up new doors in every room. The idea was that we would start in January 2012 and continue until the job was done. After Henry repaired and did a fantastic job on my kitchen, I found out from my job that I had to leave the country and be stationed in Europe for three months. Obviously, the remodeling needed to be put on hold, but Henry had already scheduled the job. When I asked him if the job could wait until my return, he graciously agreed to the new time frame. The remodeling of my place was a tremendous success. It is more beautiful than I had envisioned! Henry outdid himself, not only doing a perfect job, but assisting me in decision making to my advantage, making things run smoothly, and, most importantly, being there with courtesy and integrity.
A few examples: I decided that, after remodeling my entire place, I also needed to replace the front door of my condo (I live in a high-rise building). I asked Henry for an estimate and, also, asked the contractor who is replacing the front doors of my building. The latter contractor gave me a slightly better estimate, probably because dealing with my building's doors is his only business. Henry said that, since the other contractor gave me a better estimate, I should go with him. So there was a time when I had two contractors working in my home in perfect harmony - Henry also gave me advice on the painting of the door!
Also, I had envisioned how the tiles in my bathroom should look. The workers followed my directions, but, when I saw the outcome after my return from work, I hated it. The following morning, I told the workers, who called Henry and he came over. He agreed that the look was not beautiful. At no additional cost to me, he instructed his workers to redo the tiling in a different pattern - and it turned out perfect! But the icing on the cake was the last part of the remodeling: Five of the new doors in my condo had to be modified to fit, but the installers cut them narrower than they should be. They were expensive and, being cut narrow, not aesthetically attractive. I called Henry and he came to see them. I told him that this was not acceptable. He asked to be excused for a minute, and then he returned and, with politeness and courtesy, agreed that the doors should be redone and he assumed the full cost of their replacement!!! And he actually immediately did it!
Needless to say that, when I had a party at my place to celebrate the remodeling, Henry and his wife were the first people on my list. He actually came earlier to help us out with chores and he brought me a Black & Decker cordless drill as a gift, because I had told him that I needed one and asked him for the best brand. All my friends and neighbors were delighted with what he has done. Five of them already hired him for the remodeling of their apartments and homes, and more are following. I have to say that remodeling an entire apartment is not an easy task. But I was very lucky to have a decent, honest, respectful and knowledgeable individual on my side to help me out.
I must repeat the above from an additional perspective and that is, he is one of those exceptional people who considered the successful renovation of my home as not just another project but as his success and satisfaction as well.
If you ever need somebody to do any job in your home, I am highly and without any reservations recommending Henry's Society Hill Kitchens and Custom Interiors. You cannot go wrong with him - he is ABSOLUTELY THE BEST!
