The installation process and schedule varies with every project. During actual construction we keep our customers informed of how the schedule is progressing and if any delays or problems arise. Whether your project is in the kitchen, bathroom or other space, we are very sensitive to the fact that your life is turned upside down for the duration of the process – we make every effort to get you back to a normal situation as quickly as possible.

Finishing touches:

Dear Mr. Keller:

My wife and I wish to express our thanks and appreciation for the work you and your team recently completed in our home. The total remodel of our kitchen and master bath involved a major financial decision for our family. Like most, we sought to work with a reliable, responsible, trustworthy company that would deliver the vision we had within the budget we had allotted. After interviewing several companies, we chose Jim Keller Kitchen and Bath. Central among the deciding factors was the design you presented. The 3 dimensional color renderings provided an amazingly realistic view of the design from a variety of perspectives. When it was time to order, we felt we received useful information concerning cabinet design and wood types as well as fixture choices. It is difficult for those who did not watch the installation process to appreciate the expertise, attention to detail, work ethic, and high standards of you team. Everything fits and looks as it should.

Perhaps the most meaningful compliment I can pay any business is having the trust to provide them access to our home. I must say we felt comfortable in this respect throughout the process.

Thanks for your follow-up. Feel free to use our project to assist others in understanding what you are able to deliver.
