What We Do
Went extremely well, basically on schedule and on budget. Very good workmanship. Workers were skilled, careful, and cleaned area after working on a daily basis. Home Design Elements handled all plans, permits, and inspections. We have been very pleased. When a minor leak appeared around the new window, HDE inspected, detected the source, and repaired the problem even after 6 months with no problems and no costs.
This was an excellent experience overall. The job was finished on budget with no surprises, even though we made several changes to the original plan as we progressed. The job completed about 3 weeks behind schedule because of weather and because of delays with suppliers providing the specific carpet that we chose. We were kept involved in the entire process by Jim Kannar, the contractor. We are very happy with the quality of the workmanship, materials, and adherence to our design. They were consistently clean, careful and respectful of our property and worked hard to minimize noise and other impacts outside of the work area. They were willing to work extended hours to complete tasks and were careful to check with us before arriving early or working late. They planted several bushes and did significant landscaping around the exterior construction of the new window well. We have been extremely pleased with this project and would recommend Jim’s company for anyone doing this kind of renovation.
We had been looking for someone to finish my basement for a couple of months. During that time, we (wife and I) were picking out fixtures, we bought our huge TV, etc. When it came time to choose a contractor, we ended up with Home Design Elements after a referral from my Mom (used them for a powder room renovation). Anyway, what I liked about them was that they also have a design office, where they sell window treatments. We picked some curtains and small window treatments right in their location. When the basement was finished the windrow treatments arrived and were the wrong size. We were kind of bummed because this was the last finishing touch. But – the owner, Jim, came out to our house himself – looked at the delivered blinds and said he would take care of it. The NEXT day – he came back with 2 guys from the crew – turns out that the hardware sets had been mislabeled – he had the correct fitting rods and hardware with him. He stayed the entire time while his crew gets the curtains up – they ended up looking super. It’s hard to find a company like that – where the owner is such a stand-up guy. I’ll do business with them again at the next opportunity.
Jim Kannar and Armando along with their crew did a great job for us. They were professional and responsive and made sure we were satisfied. I also appreciated that the last 10% of the work did not take 50% of the time as is so often the case with other contractors. When we needed adjustments a few months later, they came back promptly and took care of things.
We are in the middle of a basement project and couldn’t be happier. Jim and his team are wonderful! Very responsive, quiet, and clean. And, so far, great attention to detail.
Jim and his team were excellent to work with. The work was finished on time and on budget. The best way to show how happy we were with his work was that we not only used him once but hired him and his team to come back 2 additional times and are even now looking to get
