WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
“They gave us plenty of time to shop for cabinets, floor materials, etc. We are very happy with the finishing. Three years have passed, and we have yet to find any defects. Great work!”
“Discussed aspects of the work with us as it progressed and sometimes put in extended hours to bring the job in on time. Enthusiastically recommend: we'll gladly engage them for our next project.”
“The price was the middle of the road, and we did have a few changes throughout the project, but this was to be expected with a project like this. Overall, the project was done on time, and we were thrilled with the job that was done and can't believe we have such amazing bathrooms.”
—Paul S. & Liz Y.
“James, Val, and the whole crew were great to work with. They followed through beautifully each step of the way from start to finish. This was our first major remodeling project, and I was sometimes overwhelmed. However, James was always quick to respond, listen, and talk me through the process while allowing my husband and me to make the final decisions that worked for us. They were also patient and accommodating as we changed our minds a few times throughout the remodel. The few times we ran into unexpected hiccups, the team came up with creative solutions. I highly recommend SSR. Great work and a great team!”
