From start to finish, working with Melton Design Build has been an extremely gratifying, fun experience. Our remodel goal was to create a large kitchen, dining and living space for our family to enjoy. The end result is more wonderful than we had envisioned - we love our new space! We were walked through the project with a high degree of professionalism combined with personal warmth. We worked with Steven, our project coordinator, and Claire, our designer, to get our arms around the scope of the project, our style and a budget. Claire presented us with several excellent options for floor layouts. One idea was so inventive and perfect that we could not imagine not executing on it. And she hit on our style quickly, making material selections remarkably easy. Our team approach to brainstorming the details resulted in some amazing touches that make everything extra-special. Steven was the glue that held everything together with his many years of experience being a liaison between the planning, budget and working crew. The crew, headed up by our project manager, Mike N, had skills that resulted in very high-quality finishes. Each person who came to our home was personable and considerate. Everyone listened well and followed through with our requests. We were especially impressed with Mike W, our head carpenter, and Diego, man of all trades, who made sure every request or question we had was attended to, even if it was not in their realm. Of high importance, the budget and time frame for the project were laid out realistically, and both of those goals were met exactly. Excellence all the way around is the best summation of our experience with Melton.

We are absolutely over the moon with our entire experience with Melton. This was our first experience building a custom home and we have always heard the horror stories about how the process is very stressful. That was not the case for us, we had a great time working with the Melton Team. They made the entire process very easy, learning our style and tailoring everything to us, making all the selection decisions so easy. They stuck to the budget and we didn't have any big surprises with extra costs and even finished about a month ahead of schedule. Don't be scared of the fixed price system, we had friends building at the same time with other companies and after going over budget with almost every subcontractor they had wished they just locked in a fixed price. It will save you a lot of stress during the process. We can't say enough about our experience, we even left the country for 7 weeks during the build and did not have to worry about overseeing the project because we knew we were in good hands. On budget, on time, with a quality, beautiful finished product. Thanks Melton!

After hearing horror stories from friends going through renovations with less reliable and reputable companies we were so happy we decided on Melton. We are the envy of friends and neighbors with our beautiful new kitchen. It was about as hassle free as could be expected for living through a kitchen renovation with kids. Highly recommend for design and build.

We have used Melton on a number of occasions for various household projects. As painful as remodeling projects can be, Melton does a very good job of project planning and (barring unforeseen issues) sticking to their schedule and budget. The staff are great to work with, professional yet personable too. When problems arise Melton always makes it right, no matter what. We would use Melton again and highly recommend them.

Melton fully remodeled our kitchen including removing a wall and installing a structural beam in the attic. The finished product is spectacular and we couldn't be happier. They were professional and a pleasure to work with through the entire process. The design team had some great ideas and did a great job blending them with our ideas. The project manager and construction lead kept everything on schedule and there were no major budget surprises along the way. They are not cheap but we definitely got what we paid for. We have one more major project in mind and we'll be calling Melton when we're ready to start it.

I would definitely recommend this company. I had a rather small job that needed to get done by a deadline and Melton worked with me to fit our job into their schedule and it was completely on time and looks very nice.

From my initial meeting with the design team to the final inspection everybody at Melton Design Build was professional and supportive. Information was shared with every aspect of the process. I felt entirely comfortable asking questions and sharing my ideas. Solutions were worked out together and the result is a beautiful, functional, high quality addition that I'll enjoy for years.

We were very pleased with our experience working with Melton. It is always hard to open up your home to the disruption of construction. The professionalism of Melton was greatly appreciated. And most importantly, we absolutely love our new kitchen!

I especially appreciated the contract with guaranteed price so I knew the job would stay within my budget. The designer's managing to get good light into the north-facing rooms without having undesirable views of the sides of the neighbors' houses was a major accomplishment. All the people we met were very pleasant and clearly good at their jobs. The entire crew did an excellent job of containing the inevitable dust and dirt to the area being remodeled. We use the rooms much more now than we did before the remodel. I'm a happy, returning customer, and if I ever need any other remodeling done, I'll definitely go with Melton again.

Melton designed and built three rooms for me. One, the kitchen, required gutting the original kitchen entirely (except for most of the floor) and building a new one from scratch. The two others were empty, dark, oppressive spaces that Melton turned into beautiful hobby areas with excellent storage, flooring, and lighting. Some reasons I would recommend dealing with Melton:(1) They communicate excellently at every step of the project.(2) The results were exactly what I wanted and expected, based on the initial design.(3) The project was completed on time and on budget. (4) The quality of the materials and their workmanship was excellent.(5) They went out of their way to be accommodating and cooperative.

Melton Design Build is clearly a company who not only cherishes high quality work at a competitive price, but exemplifies honesty, communication, professionalism and service. Working with everyone from Erik Carver to Matt Fitzrandolph to all the subcontrators was an absolute joy. Our business remodel was a big deal, especially considering we stayed open during the entire project, but it could not have gone any smoother. And the final product can only be described as fantastic! Thanks Melton!
