Charles of C.K. Remodeling & Design is by far the most talented contractor in the area. We tasked him with two large projects, updating our bathroom and kitchen. We also requested his assistance with... a few other minor projects around the house. Charles completed everything on time, at the price originally quoted, and very much to our satisfaction. We can't say enough great things about him and the quality of his work. He's got our recommendation!VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
Our family moved to Pittsburgh because of my job. We bought a small house on Howe Street in Shadyside that needed repairs in every room. Since I work many hours I could not do the work myself. The... real estate person told us to contact Charles Kirby, the owner of C.K. Remodeling & Design. Everything the real estate person said about him was true. He did a great job making our home more safe, functional and beautiful. My wife and I thank our real estate person for recommending C.K. Remodeling & Design, and especially thank Charles for doing the work.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »

Ru ~ I'm so glad you and your family are happy with all of the repairs I made. You now have a home that you are comfortable living in, and a brand new city to explore. Welcome to Pittsburgh! Feel free to contact me if you need assistance with any other projects in the future. All my best, C.K.
My husband bought me a new dishwasher, but he couldn't figure out how to install it. Our neighbors recommended Chuck, so we gave him a call. His calendar was already booked for the week. However, he called us back an hour later to let us know of an appointment that canceled and he was able to come the next day. Talk about perfect timing! When he got to the house he started right away. It was quite obvious he had installed one of these things before. He had it all hooked up in no time. Praise the Lord I don't have to wash dishes by hand anymore! We're completely thrilled with his promptness, courteousness and talent. Thanks for everything!

Caroline ~ Seeing the smile on your face after I got the dishwasher installed was so gratifying. You made a great investment for your home. Also, I am very glad the timing of my schedule worked out to your advantage. Feel free to contact me if you need assistance with any other projects. All my best, C.K.
We asked Chuck to install a kitchen backsplash for us and (at first) were unsure what specific design we wanted. After heeding to his suggestion of checking out those he recently posted on his facebook page and online portfolio, we finally decided on the tile size and color. Since the dimensions of our kitchen were similar to those of one he had previously done, Chuck had this project wrapped up in no time. Awesome work, impeccable detail and fantastic customer service. We kept his business card for future projects. Confidently recommend to others.

Max ~ I'm glad the pictures from my other kitchen projects were of assistance with the decision making process. It's good to hear that not only are you both pleased with the style and color, but also the work behind getting the backsplash installed. I greatly appreciate the other positive comments you've made about my work. Again, feel free to contact me if you are in need of assistance with other projects. All my best, C.K.
After reading all of the wonderful comments about Charles on this site we contacted him for an estimate to fence in our entire back yard. He was quick to respond to our initial inquiry and provide us with an estimate; however, his schedule was already booked for the following two weeks, so he wasn't able to start the job right away. Knowing we wanted him to install the fence, we patiently waited to get on his calendar and are grateful we did. Charles did a fantastic job and everything turned out exactly as we hoped. His recommendation of using pressure treated pine dog eared pickets was a success, as it provided us with the natural look we aimed for. The back yard is now secure for the dogs to run around freely and we instantly feel a sense of privacy from our neighbors. We thank Charles for such a job well done and will gladly refer him to others.

Janet ~ I really appreciate your patience with my busy schedule. I agree, it was definitely worth the wait. Your back yard looks great and feels so much more private and secure. I thank you for your positive comments about my work and I'm thrilled that you and Curt are happy with the results. All my best, C.K.
Charles has done a variety of work on our home over the past few years; our kitchen, bathroom, bedroom closets and the installation of crown moulding in our family room. Most recently, he powerwashed our deck and stained it. Again, we are pleased with his work and that is why we continue to recommend him to others. He is absolutely the whole package when it comes to needing someone who is skilled, reliable and fair with pricing. Thank you, Charles, for everything you have done for us. And, we look to get back on your schedule after the holidays are over.

Ray ~ Every time I finish a project for you and Holly, I always leave with a smile and an enormous sense of pride for the work that has been done. You both have been a great pleasure to work with these past two years. Iím still amazed by the many wonderful transformations your home has gone through and so grateful for having been involved in the entire process. I truly appreciate your continued support and kind words you both have to say about my work. Iím looking forward to tackling that next big project in the coming year. All my best, C.K.
We found Charles through this site and we couldn't be more pleased with our choice. He was dependable, and best of all, an excellent craftsman. We have a small bathroom, built in 1932, that presented numerous challenges. No problem was too difficult for Charles to solve. The end result exceeded our expectations, and we will not hesitate to contact Charles again for future projects. He aims to please--a welcome bonus to his excellent work!

Elaine and Tom ~ Thank you so much for your kind words of support not only the work I did on your bathroom, but also for me as a contractor in general. I'm just as excited about the end result of your bathroom as both of you are. Your wise decision to custom order the vanity paid off, as it really compliments the overall decor of the room. I think my favorite part of the project was customizing the radiator cover and shelving unit to tie in with the tile floor. The presence of the bathroom is unified, clean-lined, and just simply another great room in your home to enjoy. It was a pleasure working with you both, and Iím quite humbled by your appreciation of my work. Thanks again! ~ C.K.
My empty nester parents took on a DIY project where they basically destroyed two bedrooms by turning it into one large room. I found Charles through Kudzu and couldnít have been happier. He fixed their work in a timely and professional manner restoring the one bedroom back to two. In addition, he helped refinish their bathroom floor and install a new vanity. He was realistic about the timeframe, gave an accurate and reasonable quote that he stuck too, was extremely responsive, kept us posted with his progress and documented daily milestones. He was extremely professional and worked with them to make sure they were satisfied along the way. His pricing was fair and we were very happy with the final product. I would highly recommend him.

Hi, Kate! I really enjoyed meeting you and your parents. Thank you so much for your wonderful comments about my work and me as a contractor! I appreciate you entrusting me with restoring the bedrooms back to their original form. I'm quite proud of the work I did; especially with the bathroom,it turned out gorgeous! You and your parents have great tastes - the vanity and other accessories chosen really compliment the ceramic tile floor. I posted pics of it on the C.K. Remodeling & Design Facebook page, and it has received many positive remarks. http://www.facebook.com/C.K.RemodelingandDesign Should you need me to intervene on another DIY project, just let me know. All my best, Charles.
