I am writing this just as the total kitchen remodel project for which I hired Republic West Remodeling is coming to completion – today! This included complete replacement of all kitchen cabinetry, sink/faucets, electrical/lighting and even the half-removal of a floor-to-ceiling wall to provide an open view between the kitchen and living room.
I have used Republic West for major projects in the past – a similar complete remodel of our master bath complete with replacement of tub, shower, sink and all cabinetry, and the replacement of all of our windows with R-10 insulated windows for more efficient energy usage. Republic West provided excellent service for both of those prior project several years ago and so there was absolutely no one else I would have considered hiring for this current kitchen project.
Having a kitchen remodeled was about the most painful ordeal I can imagine and one which I undertook only as a result of extreme necessity and duress. (There is nothing like being without a dishwasher or a kitchen sink and having to wash dishes in the bathtub for an extended period). However, because it was necessary and unavoidable, I concluded correctly from past experience that there was no company I would rather have handle this task for me than Republic West. It was a pleasure working with Arthur Gambino again, and getting the personalized consolidated touch from all facets of the company from plan design to decorator/supply consulting and shopping assistance to the actual construction itself. The overall construction project, which required multiple subcontractors from multiple areas of speciality and expertise, was handled masterfully and efficiently by Aaron Weisman, who kept in close daily communication with us by email every step of the way and consistently worked with all of his subcontractors to ensure every step of the project was completed on or ahead of schedule. I especially appreciated the fact that one of the workers, Robert, went beyond the scope of his usual duties to complete the plumbing portion of the project a day ahead of schedule when it turned out that the plumbers normally responsible for that part of the project were not going to be available.
The project was completed according to plan and the final results are spectacular and even better than I had expected. As another review mentioned, a Republic West job is not cheap, but any premium is well worth the guaranteed efficiency, professionalism, and quality provided by this fine establishment.
