Fine Remodel was outstanding!! We did a full remodel of our kitchen, and partial remodel of our dining room. The entire project took 8 weeks – which was actually less than I thought it would take. Fine Remodel did an outstanding job of communicating and there were never any surprises. They worked with our schedule (vacations & doing the hardwood floors ourselves) and the work site was kept very clean. Besides not being able to use my kitchen for 8 weeks, I hardly noticed they were there. In addition to the quality work they do, they are compassionate as they sent a nice card and plant at the end of the job when our family pet died unexpectedly.- 2015- Heitz
Fine Remodel provided the construction services and design input for a remodel (creation of an “inside-out room” out of an otherwise- ordinary family room) designed by my retained design firm and myself. The final product is simply magnificent! I would say that communication took a lot of work because with 3 principals (Fine, design firm, myself) + subs and a schedule to adhere to, it was easy for wires to get crossed; not unexpected. This being said, for crossed wires, as well as the always-to-be-expected cost and budget issues, my Fine go-to guy was always able to get a hold of and he always managed to calm the waters and get us through the issues. The fact that my superb design firm has a long-standing relationship with Fine, and with Kelly and Mark B. in particular, was important. Although we were over in budget (and had to make some hard choices) and behind in schedule, it was far from the remodel and new construction war stories that I/we all have heard!! When I do my kitchen and bath remodels, I’ll likely use my same design and construction “team” again!!- Allen
I needed a company that would give me exceptional service from start to finish. I needed attention to detail, dependability, integrity and no surprises with quality or cost. I got just that with Fine Remodel. I was very impressed with the whole team and I plan to use them on future projects as well.- Tipton
We had a complete interior remodel of several rooms, including the kitchen, master bath, master closet, laundry room, and some less extensive remodeling in other rooms. Nearly all of the flooring was replaced (Hardwood, carpet, and tile), many new cabinets, walls removed or moved, a steel beam installed so weight-bearing walls could be removed, installation of new appliances, fixtures, windows, sliding doors, electrical work, plumbing, drywall, painting and more. This was NOT a job for a do-it-yourself-er.
Every single day since the remodel we have completely enjoyed our home. It’s stunning! Previously it was nice-enough but outdated, and now it is modern and fantastic. If I had wanted a quick and cheap job, I would have chosen someone else. I am very happy with the work that was done, and my interactions with the team.
Some things that really made a difference was the professionalism and skill level of the Fine Remodel team, including the office staff. We live on a very steep hill so not just anyone who calls themselves a contractor should be trusted to do this kind of advanced work, but I would trust Fine Remodel to do any job on this house. Mark was knowledgeable, responsive, attentive, personable, and pleasant, even when we felt the need to freak out. The project manager was also great to work with. Certainly this was a complex project that went as well as it could. The team was great to work with. No detail was left un-finished, even though it took some time to tie up loose ends. (It’s those stragglers that stay in your memory…so I’m really glad they took the time and energy to take care of every last detail.)
Some hiccups along the way included not fitting into anticipated schedule due to delays by subcontractors and suppliers, and due to our own extensive list of additions to the job, upgrades and changes to the plans, we exceeded our budget and added to the timeline.
Fine Remodel provided a list cabinet companies, flooring suppliers, etc, and I was free to chose from that list or others. We ran into delays and issues with the cabinet company that we chose from the list, and also with the closet company that was recommended, but ultimately Fine Remodel took full responsibility for making sure it was done right, often stepping in and taking care of issues themselves. I never heard anyone from the Fine Remodel team grumble or swear on site. (Though I cannot say that about some of the sub-contractors who lapsed in professionalism.) We ran into a big snag when the refrigerator did not fit into the cabinetry as I hoped. It was already too late to blame the responsible parties for this goof, but Fine Remodel stepped right in and went to great lengths to make it work. Yay!
We’ve got two bathrooms that did not get remodeled at this time and I hope to take care of those in the future. I wouldn’t consider anyone but Fine Remodel to do the job.- De Anna
I was most satisfied with the professionalism of our job foreman, and his responsiveness to any of our questions or concerns. He was right on it. Dean did a fabulous job. Mark was very responsive to any questions or concerns as well, and dealt with them right away. He fought for us for the cabinet we purchased that wasn’t done so well. He went out of his way to make sure it was of the quality that we paid for. I was also satisfied with our painter, Bill. He was fabulous. He would attend to any little detail and make sure we were completely happy with everything. I was appreciative of that. I would highly recommend Fine Remodel!
“Thank you for the wonderful work your team performed on our home in South Jordan. We started with constructing a basement walkout and stairs up to the ground level, but were able to expand the vision/project to completely solve a drainage issue and make our backyard a showplace. The centerpiece of our backyard is now a large patio with multicolored and multi-shaped pavers that tie the walkout design to match colors from the house, patio, and existing landscaping rock formations. Your team of artisans and skilled craftsmen did a superb job in every detail. I also want to compliment your team for being so helpful in scheduling. They were always on site, on time, and quick to complete the task at hand. Whenever we had to schedule opening gates and moving our dogs out of work areas, your team was cooperative and flexible. They also cleaned their work areas before leaving and worked in ways to avoid dust and dirt getting into the house. Finally, you completed the work on time and within the agreed budget. We could not be more pleased.”- Mr. & Mrs. Hawkins
“I’ve been in the interior design business since 1968. Through the years I have worked with many contractors, but none as professional as Fine Remodel. Mark remodeled the complete exterior of our home with complete perfection to every detail. The neighborhood watched with total appreciation of the project. It was kept clean, it was completed in a timely manner, as well as stayed on budget.”- Carolyn Cushman
“Mark and his team were fantastic to work with from the very beginning. Having never been through a remodel before, Mark was sensitive to the ideas that we had, while making helpful suggestions to make things even better. Mark was very honest and up front about the cost, and didn’t come back and nickel and dime us at the end for additional items. The team that Mark sent to do the remodel was very professional, and we felt comfortable right away with the Fine Remodel team as well as all of the subcontractors… They were knowledgeable and skilled, and we felt like they were always looking out for us, making sure we got things we would be happy with. One of the best things about them is that if they saw something that needed to be done, they would just take care of it, again, without requesting a change order and without coming back for more money later. All in all, we had a fabulous experience, and the final product is even better than we could have imagined!”- Jeff Bickel
“Fine Remodel is an outstanding provider of home and business remodeling services. We chose Mark Blankman and his company to remodel our kitchen in the summer of this year. The experience was beyond our expectations in terms of both overall quality and customer service. Mark and his team did a great job of taking the stress out of what can be a very stressful situation. They were very attentive to our needs – and maintained constant communication throughout the project. Mark did a great job of listening, making suggestions and ensuring that our expectations were met. We are very pleased with our new kitchen. We would not hesitate to consider Mark Blankman and Fine Remodel should future remodeling needs arise.”- Linda Fontenot
“Fine Remodel does a great job. We’ve used them for several projects, and we keep going back. They may not be the cheapest, but they get the job done and they always do great work. I was most satisfied with their professionalism and flexibility.”- Mark & Cindy Thomson
