- What areas of your trade do you specialize in?
We specialize in high-end, award-winning home remodeling in the Pittsburgh region. Through our company, you get the synergy of "design and build" under one roof, meaning our craftsmen and Lead Carpenters are carefully synchronized with our designer and project managers. We also offer home energy audits and "green" remodeling solutions that reduce home energy use and utility bills.
- What brands or products do you work with?
We work with major high-end brands, depending on our client's budget and preferences.
- What do you wish customers knew about your profession or trade?
There are too many examples of home owners not getting what they expected or paid for from remodeling contractors. Many of these end up in court. So we recommend that homeowners thoroughly 'vet' contractors to avoid this end result. (see also our professional certifications and memberships)
At Master Remodelers we integrate the 'arts' of beautiful design and fine craftsmanship with the 'sciences' of durable, sustainable construction and energy efficiency. All to improve your comfort and quality of life in your home. Therefore, our tagline "advancing the art and science of living."
- How did you get started?
Our business goes back to 1988. Since then, we have remodeled more than one thousand homes, including fine kitchens, baths, home additions, outdoor living spaces, and more. As of February 2012 we have won 21 remodeling awards, including regional and national.
- What services do you provide your customers after the work has finished?
We guarantee our work in case our customers find some problems, which is rare.
- What questions should a customer ask before hiring a professional in your trade?
Before hiring a home remodeling contractor, a home owner should ask for:
• customer references
• credentials and professional certifications
• samples of work
• insurance and certificates
• registration with the PA Attorney General's office
- Tell us about the project or job that you are most proud of (in the last 12 months).
We are proud of all of our projects because we start with great design and then put the most talented craftsmen to work on bringing them to life. We are particularly proud of the 21 awards we've won, including the most recent--two "Housing Excellence" awards in 2011 from the Builders Association of Metropolitan Pittsburgh.
