From the moment I contacted Vlad I was impressed. He got back to me right away, asked to see pictures of my vision, and followed up with questions to have a clearer scope of work before providing me an estimate. Then he visited our home, talked to me about what was realistic and possible for the design, took measurements and adjusted the estimate as the size and needs of the design (I.e. drawers, hutch) were bigger than I originally thought.
I appreciated that Vlad listened to me and explained why he needed to tweak things (I.e. our floor wasn’t level, sconces needed removed etc.). When he was building, he would come to measure and check sizing before he continued. Always checking in and following through.
Unlike other contractors we have used, Vlad was phonemonal at communicating and giving us a realistic timeline for when he could begin and how long the jobs would take. What he said was exactly what happened from the timeline to the pricing. There was never a surprise.
The two projects we had done were builtin cabinet and book shelves surrounding existing fireplaces. As we didn’t want to replace the fireplaces, Vlad used as much of the original tiling as possible too. The pieces turned out beautiful and are now feature walls in our home. Guests are really impressed when they see them and how they have changed the flow and warmth of our home.
I would recommend Vlad to anyone who has a cabinetry and millwork project. He is an artist and puts so much love and care into his work.
