After getting quotes for having our kitchen remodeled by 2 large national companies and briefly considering doing our own contracting, we decided to investigate some smaller locally-based contractors. Based on his BBB and Angie’s List grades and his references, we contacted Chris Rosseland and set up an initial meeting. Chris’s professionalism and sincerity were immediately apparent, as was his ability to really listen to what we were saying. Right away we could tell that he “got “us and our vision for our kitchen. We really wanted to work with him, and once we received his proposal, we knew we needn’t look any further for our contractor. We felt like we were safe, that we had someone we could trust, and this feeling was totally confirmed during the course of the remodel.

Chris immediately put us in contact with the people he uses for all the components of a kitchen. Although we had thought that we would just replace the existing cabinets in their original configuration, Nancy, the cabinet designer, came out to the house with Chris and proposed a simple switch in the layout that totally transformed the space and which we would have never imagined. Although we had gone out independently looking at granite, Chris arranged to have his fabricator look at granite with us in order to find the perfect exotic granite that would still fit our budget. Every step of the way, Chris made sure that we were aware of the costs and that we were getting the products that we wanted to make our dream kitchen a reality and yet not overspend our budget. And every subcontractor we dealt with had nothing but praise for Chris, further reassuring us that we had made the right decision in hiring Rosseland Remodeling.

Once kitchen remodeling got underway, everything proceeded according to schedule. Everyone who worked in our house was friendly, polite, professional, and meticulous about their work. The work-site was cleaned up before the workers left every day. Having done most of the work on our houses ourselves, we were very careful observers with very high standards. It took a few days before we realized that we didn’t have to be ever-vigilant—Chris and his crew (especially the masterful go-to guy Carlos) found and handled the smallest of details, even ones we might never have noticed. There were ever any bad surprises—only several very pleasant ones! The atmosphere was one of calm and competency. Our happiness and satisfaction was the chief concern, and our completed kitchen has transformed our home—we are very happy and completely satisfied!

Integrity is a virtue that is sometimes sadly lacking in many people and businesses today. But Chris Rosseland exemplifies that trait. We would most heartily recommend Rosseland Remodeling to our family and friends or to anyone who wants a job done very, very right.
