Thought I would let you know how I am progressing on my fixer upper. It was almost a year ago that I reached a point in my remodeling when it was time to do something with the floors. The old hardwood flooring was so beat up and I'm sure it would have cost a lot to restore them if possible. Thanks to you and your advice I decided to go with ceramic tile. I am very happy we did. It still looks as great as the day it was installed. I want to thank you for working with me and the professional installation you provided. Once again Thank you.
First, let me tell you a little about myself… I am a “perfectionist” by nature and hard to please! As a former U.S. Marine and civilian international construction site security specialist at our U.S. Embassies abroad, I have traveled the world and I can tell you that I have seen my share of construction sites and contractors. Integrity is paramount in any endeavor in the Marine Corps and it’s one of the most valued traits that a Marine or former Marine can possess. So, with that said, this is my honest review of my experiences with Merrell Construction & Concepts and the owner Nathan Merrell.
I contacted Merrell Construction & Concepts last November (2010) through the Internet because I had tiling jobs in two different locations that needed attention. I was going to do them myself but I was injured in an automobile accident and subsequently could not complete the projects due to my condition. The first project was in my condominium and included tiling my master bathroom, kitchen, and laundry room floors. Note: This was not an easy job! My condominium is located on the 3rd floor and there is no elevator so it required multiple trips up and down the stairs. The second project was in the laundry room area of the house my wife and I recently bought.
After I had submitted my information on Mr. Merrell’s website, I was contacted by him within a few hours. We made arrangements to meet the very next day for a free estimate and I can tell you that I was pleasantly surprised because his rates were extremely reasonable. In fact, knowing what I know now, I would have hired him to do these jobs even if I had not been injured!
Mr. Merrell is extremely professional yet personable and his knowledge and attention to detail is one of the best in the business that I have seen. In fact, as he was tiling my laundry room floor in our home, he noted some serious defects in our floor and found some major structural issues within the unfinished part of our basement including our subfloor. Had it not been for Mr. Merrell, I would not have known about these issues even though we had a home inspector come and inspect the place before we made our purchase.
He performs his work with exemplary perfection. In addition, he worked non-stop until both jobs were completed which took about 2-3 days if my memory serves me right. He always arrived early and I can without hesitation give him my highest recommendation! I will certainly call him again when we decide to do some renovations in our home. Thanks again Nathan, and I will certainly hire you again soon.
"Nathan is very detail oriented, efficient, and dependable. His workmanship was impeccable with our bathroom and living room projects and he provided exactly the look we were aiming for in both areas. We will definitely use Merrell construction for future work in and around our home and would recommend Nathan for anyone looking to update and enhance their home!"
