They have done 2 construction jobs for me. They remodeled my master bedroom suite and they also did a bathroom remodel for me. They are excellent. He finished the work on time and within budget. He is an architect as well so he was able to make suggestions that saved me money. He was very responsive and professional. His work is exceptional and I would recommend him without reservation.
Our old house had a front room of a double parlor that was unusable--hard to get into from the front door and not very inviting. After finding an antique mantelpiece that fit the room, it was time to upgrade. Milan had done our formal dining room, stairs and office before, so we chose him to do this too. Milan removed the double parlor doors and doorway, putting in its place a gas fireplace build-out to support the mantel. He also cut a double doorway the into room from the hallway. Afterwards he re-drywalled the entire room including ceiling, adding or replacing the old style moldings.
Besides installing the mantel for the fireplace, he had to build it out from scratch to match the gas insert, designing and laying a marble hearth as well as laying out and installing the tile inset. The final touches to the room included hanging double-folding panel doors that match the other doors in the house, installing a 9 light front door that opens into new room, as well as, priming and painting it all.
The finished work is amazing. Most guests think it's all original to the house. Even old friends have to be reminded about what was once there. The tile work on the fireplace holds everyone's attention, but its the details of the entire job, from doors to molding to fireplace that pulls it all together for us. And, he did it his usual fast way: always cleaned-up, us getting his main attention. You got to be ready for this guy cause he's there to get the job done. We've shared him with lots of friends over the years, but only with our best friends.
Project: Remove wall (a bearing one) and expand kitchen into adjacent room; install beam, cabinets and floor; rebuild back stairs, front fence, and back sleeping porch; moved plumbing and installed toilet. Did electrical work throughout the house.
Milan brings superior design skills, as well as quality craftsmanship. We have an old house that presents challenges whenever we work on it. Milan was able to help us envision the projects, estimate options and costs, and develop a plan. He stayed within estimates, often doing additional work to make it right. Because there were multiple projects, the work evolved over several months. In all that tine, he and his crew were timely, personable and a pleasure to work with.
Complete kitchen remodel. Old kitchen taken down to the studs and everything replaced. Milan did the majority of the work and sub contracted out a small portion. New wallboard, tile floor, cabinet installation, electrical, plumbing, painting and installation of appliances.
It went wonderfully. The total job was done in four weeks. Milan is responsive to questions and got the job done very fast but with quality work. The kitchen was cleaned every day and very little dust was allowed to get in to other rooms. We were able to live in the unit while the work was done. Milan guided us to good vendors for cabinets, tile, lighting fixtures and appliances. We had all the appliances and cabinets pre-ordered and waiting to be delivered. All other fixtures were in our house so there were no delays due to material not being available.
As long as you are ready with the materials and appliances Milan needs he will do a wonderful remodel of your kitchen. We recommend him very highly. We could not have had a better experience than we did with Milan Construction.
Complete remodel of kitchen and sun room.
Milan did a complete and high quality remodel on my kitchen and sunroom. I especially appreciated how punctual, thorough and careful he was. He is fast! The first day he arrived as promised promptly at 7:00 am and he had the old kitchen cabinets removed and disposed of before I left for work! He kept me informed, involved, was considerate of my cat and accurate to his estimate. He has good aesthetic suggestions, great vendor recommendations and is meticulous in his quality. He does most of the work himself so needs no subcontractors which greatly speeds the completion of the project. I plan to use him again for other projects in the future.
Milan Construction performed three major jobs for us, in 2006, 2007 and 2008. They included: a complete basement remodel into a two bedroom apartment from the studs out; a complete master bathroom remodel with tile, glass enclosed shower, new vanity and plumbing installation; and, finally, the remodeling of a small den into a nicely appointed office-space with adjoining full bathroom and storage closet.
Every aspect of these jobs was professional. Estimates were very close to final costs, and two times below the final cost. Work began and ended in the given timeframe. Crew's arrival was always punctual, and they showed care and respect of the premises and of us as the homeowners. When problems arose - unexpected situations or necessary changes of plan - Milan would contact us, explain the difficulty, offer options, and work with us to best solve the issue before continuing the work. There was also nothing he couldn't handle with excellence, from pouring concrete, to framing, to painting, to plumbing, to electrical, to engineering; all in all very competent and careful. I could go on and on.
They were the best experiences either my partner or I have EVER had with a general contractor, and to this day he is the first person I call to discuss ongoing work and necessary projects on our property. There is no one I could recommend more highly.
The work encompassed plumbing, electrical, drywall, tile, lighting, carpentry work and other various tasks! One of the most valuable things about Milan is that he is very competent and cooperative with building inspectors so that he can gain their cooperation to fulfill permit conditions.
He worked with two different inspectors and each time was successful. His selection of his staff was excellent; no rudeness, loud music, they kept the area clean and tidy, which is very hard to do, and was able to complete the job timely and at budget. He approached me and explained each new thing that was find and gave me the opportunity to accept or reject alternative solutions to unknown events as they came up.
Milan was also very cheerful and kept a very demeanor, even though he had to deal with my pesky husband. All the work was aesthetically pleasing and I am very, very satisfied with the work.
I have used Milan Construction for the last 10 years on remodeling projects on my houses. He is very professional and I have been happy with his work for the last 10 years.
