Kevin Bennett, Livonia, MI:
From the very start to the very end, Andy was great. He helped us design our kitchen, and never rushed us and helped us come up with a fantastic design. His workers were first class all the way, superior workmanship. He returned all calls and emails within 24 hours. The job was finished on time and on budget. There were defects in a couple cabinets, Andy took care of it with no hassle. Andy truly cared about our kitchen, and everything else. On top of all this, Andy is a nice guy with a good sense of humor. Highest recommendation.
David H., Milford, Michigan: We are very happy with our kitchen cabinets from Michigan kitchen cabinets. Andy was wonderful to work with. We had some delays after ordering the cabinets, and and he was very accommodating and willing to hold the cabinets until we are ready for the install. Andy was present during the installation of the cabinets and granite countertops and used some wonderful contractors to help. We shopped around at several different places and felt the quality and price of the cabinets we got at Michigan kitchen cabinets was excellent. No problem recommending Andy and Michigan kitchen cabinets to friends and family.
Paul K., Bloomfield Hills, MI:
Work completed: We had cabinets, faucets and countertops in our master bathroom and 3 other bathrooms removed and replaced (5 total cabinets and countertops). Large wall mirrors were removed. Andy was outstanding to deal with. He is a very pleasant and honest contractor, who was genuinely interested in us being satisfied with the entire project. He was very competitively priced. We had to postpone starting the work a few times for various reasons (all unrelated to Andy)and Andy was very accommodating of our changing timetable. Andy was very efficient in his work. He had excellent assistants helping him. He had to rip out all the existing cabinets, countertops and faucets, as well as removing many built in wall mirrors, all of which was done quickly and without any damage to the walls or floor tiles. Andy offered some good advice as far as colors, cabinet layout and other features of the project, which was helpful. This was a big project for us, having 4 bathrooms under renovation at the same time, and Andy made it painless as possible. We love the cabinets from the Bridgewood Advantage line that he recommended. They are really well made, function great and look beautiful. The countertops were provided by Andy and his stone cutter, a real professional when it comes to granite. There was an wide selection of stone for us to choose from, and his stone cutter did a terrific job at the countertop installation. We selected faucets (on our own, not through Andy) which were beautiful but difficult to install due to their design, but Andy was able to get them all in and working properly. Andy is an excellent cabinet contractor and I would highly recommend him.
Eric M., Northville, MI:
Andy installed new granite counter tops in the kitchen.Andy was very professional from the start. he spent a lot of time with us talking about the layout we wanted, the backsplash we wanted, and how to achieve it. He answered all our questions promptly, whether we asked by phone, email or text. He was very flexible with our design goal, constructively adding advice on ways to make it better. Andy has people who can help you with your idea, from picking the granite, to designing the backsplash, to picking the perfect faucet. We highly recommend his services and will use him again in future projects.
Brian H., Riverview, MI:
Installation of 3 cm granite counter tops. Services also included: removal and haul of previous counter tops, 18 ga. stainless steal sink included with purchase of granite and installed (which I declined because I used my own sink), sealer applied to counter tops, choice of any level 1 color of granite (I chose a level 2 color for a reasonable fee), choice of any standard edge, 2 cutouts (sink and stovetop). Re-installing the plumbing was a $280 option that I declined. This was the fourth granite estimate I received. I contacted Trusted and spoke with the owner Andy. He was very easy to get a hold of and come to my house 2 days after my initial call. He showed up on time and was very easy to talk to. There was no hard sales pitch and I felt comfortable with my decision to hire him. I was concerned about the seam placement and the fact that my cabinets were not level. He assured me that my granite counters would be level and he also placed the seam in the most logical place. Other companies wanted to place a seam in strange locations that made no sense to me. I was very impressed that Andy's estimate was equal to or less than other estimates I received. Andy''s estimate did not have many of the up charges other companies do (radius charge, cutout charge, faucet hole charge, etc.). Less than one week after my initial contact with Andy, his stone cutter came out to make a template. The stone cutter met us at the granite warehouse to help pick out our slab. He was very patient and offered his advice when needed. The whole process from intial contact to install took 4 weeks and would have been 3 weeks but I needed to move back the install date. On the install date the team arrived within 30 of our scheduled start time. They were very professional and laid down drop cloths before work began.
Gary S., West Bloomfield, MI:
Called Michigan Kitchen Cabinets and setup appointment for measurement. Andy showed up and got all the details and then we met at his showroom to discuss his ideas and ours. Once all was set, it went off like clockwork His installer was very meticulous and a pleasure to work with. The whole process was a pleasure. It looks fantastic and only slightly over budget on my part.
Arun R., Farmington Hills, MI: Very satisfied with my new kitchen and thanks to Andy for a job well done ! The quality of cabinets are great and very elegant looking.The whole project from demolition of old cabinets to installation of new cabinets along with the supporting electrical and plumbing work required, as well as the granite counter tops installation, was very well organized and executed.The various contractors that came over were very professional and with good work ethics. My family felt comfortable with them around.Andy monitored the project from start to finish, was very hands on and always kept me informed on next steps and schedules. He paid attention to detail, and worked with us on exactly what we wanted and that was great.My kitchen was completed ahead of schedule too...Great job !
Debra D., Bloomfield Hills, MI:
Work completed: Granite Countertops for an outdoor kitchen.They were very efficient and professional. Andy provided the initial quote and his stone cutter met us at the Granite warehouse to help us select the granite for our outdoor kitchen. He did a marvelous job cutting the granite to the space and the installation was very smooth. It is absolutely beautiful.
Joe M., Bloomfield Hills, MI:
Description Of Work: We had a granite island removed as well as our corian veneer countertops. The quote included unhooking my cooktop, disposal, water filtration and reconnecting them. There was an additional charge of $100 to remove the granite island and $125 for the cooktop (6 burner gas cooktop). The plumbing was $280. The level one granite was $45 per square foot, which included the 4 inch backsplash and a 60/40 undermount stainless steel sink.The whole experience couldn't have been better. There was no pressure. Andy answered all of our questions and didn't try to sell us anything we didn't want. We were concerned about damage to our tile since we purchased it when we lived in Portugal, so it has sentimental value. Andy said they would try not to damage it, but made no promises. His stonecutter was very careful during the tearout and there was only one minor chip in the bottom of one tile, that I wouldn't have noticed if he didn't point it out. There were no surprises and the stone cutrer and his crew took great pains to clean up as the demolition and installation proceeded. Andy ended up doing the plumbing work, because his plumber was tied up on another job. Andy suggested, when he quoted the job, that we get a new faucet because they couldn't guarantee the reinstallation of our old one. We have a grohe faucet and decided to keep it. It wasnt an issue as Andy had no difficulty reinstalling it. I would highly recommend Andy. The look of our kitchen has been upgraded tremendously. We couldn't be more pleased with the result.
Melva G., Roseville, MI:
Andy took out my old countertops and replaced with them with granite.I contacted Andy for a estimate. That same week Andy came to my home for a free in home estimate. A few days later a representative came to my home to take the final measurements. The following week I went to the showroom to personally pick my slab of granite. The possibilities seemed endless. A week later they came and installed my beautiful countertops. The installers were very professional and nice. My experience with this company has been very positive. I strongly recommend them.
Mary N., Toledo, OH:
Installation of 3 cm granite counter tops and 4" backslash in kitchen. Services also included: removal and haul of previous counter tops; 18 ga. stainless steal sink included with purchase of granite and installed; sealer applied to counter tops; choice of any Level 1 color of granite (just so happened a Level 2 was on sale for Level 1 price for us); choice of any standard edge (additional cost for non-standard edges); plumbing and parts are available upon request for additional cost of $280.00. The job was done fantastically, and we are very impressed with our new countertops. The owner (Andy) and his son were very professional, timely, honest, and easy to contact. Compared to other companies, the price was by far the lowest around, they offered the fastest installation time, and no additional or hidden fees were added after our initial estimation. We had Lowes quote us for same granite at $60 a sq. ft., up to 8 weeks to get the granite in, and all their services were priced in addition to the sq. ft. price. We couldn't have been more pleased and would highly recommend Trusted Improvement for anyone looking to remodel a kitchen or bathroom.
Kathy R., Berkley: Andy completely remodeled my kitchen. He also gutted the exterior walls, added insulation, and did new drywall. The remodel included new ceiling lights. cabinets, countertop, wiring, plumbing work.It went well. Andy was pleasant, helpful, relaxed, funny, but always efficient. He listened to me, listened to what I wanted and accommodated my requests. There were delays, but the delays were explained to me ahead of time, and he asked me if I could handle the delay involved with that choice. He gave me a detailed breakdown of the costs, and didn't mind when I declined some things and added others at the last minute. I like his work, and I like him as a person. YES, I would hire him again.
Mark D., Canton, MI:
Work completed: Replaced existing formica counter tops, wet bar, and window ledge with granite. Added two sinks. Andy and his ace granite fabricator, should be your "go to guys" for kitchen granite work. I downloaded their handy Excel application for designing your work, filled it in with our kitchen measurements, and sent it to them via e-mail. The next day I received their estimate via return e-mail. The estimate was as expected, so I call Andy and scheduled a visit for the following day. He arrived exactly on time, confirmed (and corrected) my measurements, discussed granite options and edging, and agreed on a price. Three days later, their granite expert arrived, did precise measurements, and laid out sink and stove top locations. We then visited their granite wholesaler, selected a specific slab, and two weeks later (to the day), the stone cutter was ready to install the new counter tops. Installation was a joy. The stone cutter and his assistant arrived promptly, demo'd the existing counters and removed the debris. They installed the new granite counter tops slowly and carefully - adjusting out of plumb cabinets with shims to create a perfectly level counters. They cut holes for the sink faucets and stove top onsite to make sure they were correctly positioned. When finished, they swept and vacuumed the kitchen and removed all signs of their work. These people are a pleasure to work with and their prices are great. We love our new granite counter tops. My only regret is that we don't have a second kitchen so I could hire them again.
Greg B., Woodhaven, MI:
Work completed: Removal of old countertops, and installation of granite tops, sink new faucet, and disposal.Very smooth from initial contact through the finish, called Andy on Sunday evening, left a message, and he called back the next morning, and came to measure that same day. Got a great price, and were told the stone cutter would call to come and make a template within 3 or 4 days. Sure enough he called in 3 days came over and made a template, and we set up an appointment for picking out our slab. His stone cutter was very helpful in picking out our color. Everybody was prompt, and friendly, and very professional lthrough out the entire job. The stone cutter took time to level our cabinets, and would not install the granite until he was sure everything was right. Took great care not to damage our tile above the new backsplash, very highly recommended.
An update to my review:. The last thing to do was install my brand new single handle faucet. I bought it myself from a wholesaler and when we opened the box, it was damaged. (the handle would not stay on, i guess it broke due to rough handling during shipment). Andy installed it, got the handle leak to a level we could live with, until the new replacement arrived.The new one came in two days, I called Andy and he came over that day, removed the broke one, and installed the new one. He sure made my wife and myself very happy customers. I already got a rough estimate for a new tub, tile etc. for my bath, before Andy left, and will call Andy to do the project. Andy went above and beyond my expectations.
Jon S., Dearborn, MI:
Trusted improvement remodeled my entire kitchen. They tore out old cabinets, soffits, and counter tops. They also installed new cabinets, ran electrical to fit new fixtures and lighting. Additionally, they reworked plumbing for the sink. Finally they installed a beautiful granite counter top and installed a slate backsplash. Trusted Improvement was very professional, efficient and detailed when completing my kitchen remodel. The owner Andy was in constant communication with me letting me know about the progress and plan to complete each step of the process. They went above and beyond to ensure that each detail of the remodel was done correctly and to what I envisioned for my kitchen. The kitchen was completed quickly and more important correctly. Additionally the price for the work completed was right on. I would recommend Trusted Improvement to others and plan on using them again when I redo my bathroom.
