Dear Don,
As the new year approaches, we have been living in our new kitchen and great room for a few months now and we love It!
When we started this project people told us horror stories of remodeling projects, told us to be prepared for it to take 2 to 3
times longer than estimated, and that we would have headaches dealing with contractors, subcontractors, and so on.
We can honestly say we did not encounter any of that.
It was a true pleasure working with you, Kurt, and Roy! Your vision for our addition was something we hadn’t even considered,
but we are totally thrilled with the outcome. You saved our deck and gave us everything on our wish list!
We knew from our first meeting with you that we wanted you to do our remodeling. You were upfront and honest and
impressed us with your sincerity and knowledge.
Every step of the project you kept us informed. The attention to detail that you, Kurt and Roy put into every aspect is
astounding. The quality of the work done is phenomenal!
Kurt & Roy are so awesome! They are so friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. Their insights, suggestions, and experience
helped us make many of the decisions we had to during this process. You are all “family” to us.
Your 90 day timeline was on target! And while we were happy to have the project completed, we truly missed having you all
We have already, and will continue to recommend Don Jason Remodeling to others with utmost sincerity and happiness. You
went above and beyond to make this experience wonderful for us!
God Bless You,
Jim and Stacy
