Distinctive handled it all with integrity, 4/24/2011

Our project consisted of adding a bonus room in the unused open space above in our two story great room. We’ve been using the room for almost two years since Mark Buelow and the Distinctive team... completed our addition and the project turned out just as we planned. It has been wonderful and we would definitely work with Distinctive again. The due diligence process started with interviewing six different companies before deciding to work with Distinctive. During the initial site visit and design process, Mark listened intently. He never tried to add or up-sell a kitchen remodel or addition into the scope like some of the other remodelers we consulted with. He stayed focused and within the scope of our needs. Only after we reviewed our entire project did he make suggestions that he felt wouldn’t benefit or fit the project. Our Project Manager, Kane, was professional and ensured that the scheduling of craftsman was managed, that the work spaces were kept orderly and there wasn’t any chaos. Mark was always quick to respond to any question that came up. Since the entire project was managed by Distinctive, everything was managed superbly. The process was methodical and organized. We had a Gant chart to follow the work schedule that charted the entire process and everything occurred as expected. In the one case that could have caused a conflict with scheduling, Kane jumped right in and lost no time. I highly recommend the Distinctive team and Mark Buelow.

True Professionals Providing Quality Work, 2/20/2011

Distinctive Remodeling worked with us in creating a fabulous new master bathroom. Mark and his team were a pleasure to work with. Questions / concerns were dealt with immediately and... professionally. The project was completed in a timely manner and we could not be happier with the end result. Mark listens to his clients wishes, is very detailed oriented and delivers a quality product. Our project manager, Kane, was also very organized and was on site nearly every day as the project progressed. Calls and emails were returned immediatley. I have seen other completed projects from Distinctive including kitchens, exterior porches and whole house renovations and they are all beautifully completed. I would recommend Distinctive Remodeling for any remodeling project. A great find!

Gorgeous Bathroom

We would highly recommend Distinctive. They were extremely professional, hard working and terrific at making our vision a reality. They quickly responded to all phone call, texts and showed up each day on time and ready to work. Could not have been more accommodating. Our Master Bath and Half Bath are showpieces. Removing all our popcorn ceiling has made such a huge difference in our home too. Thank you Mark, Kane and Crew.

Would Not Recomend

Lowballed us to get our business until we gave our so called "design" fee - $1500. Then suddenly the price shot up... surprise!!! Changed to another company that charged no "Design fee". Got more in 1 week from them then 4 weeks with this company. I'd recomend you go elsewhere for Kitchen or Bath work. Of course won't give any of our so called "design" fee back.... Lots of better places that don't rip you off, maybe this is how he makes his money. Make sure you go by the "so called" show room they have before using.. not very impressive.

PRICING/IMPACT FROM SCOPE & SELECTION – Distinctive offered an estimate and price range after a 1 hour meeting. The client said they planned to be in the home no more than 5 years, and were focused on managing budget and price. We offered a no frills proposal based on expectations established by the client. In the Design Phase the client’s product selections changed from moderately priced materials to higher end/more expensive materials, and the scope of the project increased to add the removal of portions of walls, etc. Distinctive provided a full accounting of how the price changed from the original estimate. More than once the client acknowledged they played a key role (through selections and scope) in driving the price up. The client went back to the marketplace and looked for someone who would agree to the higher-end scope at a discounted rate. For example, the other company offered painted and glazed finishes on cabinets for no additional charge (these features always increase the price of cabinets – which raises concern the other company may try to recover that cost during construction). The upgrades this client will request is certain to be financially challenging for the new company, which could also increase the price during construction. We believe in clear pricing adjustments before construction starts to avoid any major changes. SERVICES PERFORMED– Complete kitchen and bathroom cabinet designs were provided by our Certified Kitchen Designer. An initial review of the plans with Mrs. B. provided positive feedback. No changes were requested. Per the Design Agreement, we had a 4-5 week design schedule for selections and design. We don’t believe in rushing design. Careful planning during this phase saves money and regrets later. DESIGN FEES – Most Design/Build Remodeling firms charge design fees. We agreed to design a kitchen and bathroom for a fixed fee of $1,500 (Design Agreements vary greatly in price and structure, and often are drafted with hourly rates based on project complexity). The Design Agreement clearly states this fee is non-refundable. The client asked for a breakdown of hours and how this money was spent. This was provided and, in fact, expenses exceeded the Design Fee. SHOWROOM – Distinctive never claimed to have a full-fledged showroom. We distribute two lines of cabinetry, and have display material and samples. The client had multiple selection meetings with key vendors of Granite, Plumbing and Tile at their showrooms. The client feedback was also positive. We are disappointed the client chose another company and certainly regret their feelings toward us. We honored all terms of our Design Agreement. We were willing to discuss this further, and were surprised this review was posted before any other discussions could be arranged.

Great Service & Great Results

We have used Distinctive Remodeling on two of our residences in the past 5 years. They have been courteous, professional, and creative in their designs and services. They were very knowledgable on product selection and walked us through each step.

Terrible! Find someone else!

We hired this company to do a remodeling project costing over $370,000. What was to take 6 months, took 3 years. I would think twice before hiring this company. Everything was great in the beginning but quickly fizzled. Our job was managed very poorly. I would have expected more with the amount of money we spent with this company.

First Class

Our experience with DRS was excellent! They came in after we had been ripped off by an unsavory contractor and literally gave our family a home to live in again! They go the extra mile to make sure you are satisfied. All their sub contractors are excellent, work hard, are on time and get the job done. I recommend them to everyone! Thanks!

Top Quality and Service

I have recently had the pleasure of using Distinctive Remodeling Solutions for an addition and new kitchen remodel. With a lot of help from their designer, and some input from us, we have a kitchen that should be in magazines. I do not want to be too long winded here, but the service is not what I would have expected. There is certainly a benefit to using such a company for any project. Thank you Mark and your whole team for your attention to detail and for the care that you showed our home and family during the whole process!!!

The team at Distinctive Remodeling

The team at Distinctive Remodeling did an amazing job remodeling our kitchen last Fall. The entire experience was better and less stressful than we expected based on our previous experiences with remodeling contractors. The final result is awesome and completely transformed the feel of our house. From his designer Steve to his project manager Kane and all the subs in between, there wasn't a weak link. It's refreshing to deal with a contractor that does 100% of what he says he's going to do. Thanks Mark!
