In the five or so years that I had the opportunity to work with John Brady with Design by John, I’ve had the chance to observe his ability to be a professional. My observations are that he is very dependable by being on the job when he said that he would be there. He gets the job completed in a timely manner with very few problems. If a situation arises, he knows how to resolve the situation and continue. This keeps a good working relationship with his clients.

Just a few words of praise for our remodel job, which you did for use during the month of July. Every aspect of the remodel was handled with care, precision, and professionalism. It involved a new Corian counter-top and sink, complete redo of the kitchen ceiling to accommodate can lights, under-cabinet lighting, trim molding, new front closet doors, and red oak hardwood floors covering about 800 square feet.

We hired John Brady, owner of Design by John, to remodel our kitchen. It was a complete remodel with everything removed down to the bare walls. Our home is an early 1960’s brick ranch. Needless to say, John found some interesting things as he peeled off the layers.

We felt John’s bid was reasonable, and the time frame to do the job kept us out of our kitchen for only slightly over five weeks—miraculous! The job began June 9 and was finished July 16.

We are quite please with the way you pulled together fixtures, a recessed cabinet, tile, and shelves in the restricted space that we had (since we were unwilling to give up the coat closet. We now have a very attractive, luxurious even, functional bathroom.

Dear John,

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the fine work you did installing my WilsonArt Estate flooring during the recent kitchen remodel that you completed for me. I greatly appreciate the extra time you took to get the floor looking great, despite the inconsistent quality of the flooring product.
