I am grateful for the opportunity to promote excellence in design/build. It is rare in almost any business to have that any more and the soil for lazy work or being taken advantage of is fertile for the naive customer. Carnemark sets the gold standard for excellence and accountability. And no, they are not my relatives ;-)
Jeff Bienik oversees the job on site and is on top of everything. I feel VERY reassured the work is done right!!! He is 100% courteous to our neighbors and that means a lot to us. Jonas and Patrick always point us in the right direction re: quality choices for materials.
Jonas is involved in everything related to Carnemark business. That is huge. Consequently It is sometimes challenging to get answers from him via e mail to "the small stuff". When he is with you, you have him 110%. e mail reply and deadline decisions respected by both parties for would be helpful. Patrick Herald is wonderful to work with….he has the creative genes and the customer support "can do" attitude that makes us feel very cared for, and watched over!
Absolutely. The highest ethical standards.
It is such a pleasure to work with Carnemark. Each individual involved in our project is invested personally in the outcome. They are professional, caring, warm, and experts at everything they do. They are creative, practical, incredibly detailed oriented with standards of excellence. The process is never easy for the displaced customer, but I have complete faith that my work is done right!
They are wonderful. Jonas has built an excellent team. I don't know the "behind the scenes" crew but I KNOW they are the silent partners in much of Carnemark's success. Many, many thanks to ALL who are working at Carnemark. Each one of you makes a VALUABLE difference and contributes to the success of the project and the organization.
I've been out of the house for the summer. I'm looking forward to moving back in, and starting to enjoy my beautiful new rooms! Thanks very much to everyone at Carnemark for making it happen!
Frank Sis managed to take a rather chaotic beginning to my project and make it efficient, well-run and to-specifications, both during construction and in results. He obviously cares a great deal that the finished product be of highest quality and that the client be completely satisfied. It was a pleasure to work with him!
I've already recommended them to several friends.
I simply cannot say enough nice things about the people at Carnemark. There is a professionalism and commitment to customer service that is simply the best I have ever experienced.
I have worked with a lot of architects and contractors, both at work and at my home, and I have never met any company as professional and pleasant as all the people at Carnemark. They keep their commitments and time schedulew. We have a large job with them, and they are on-schedule, and keep us well-informed as to progress. Their detailed finish schedules and weekly meetings keep everyone on-track so that the job can finish on time.
Yes, Michael S is a wonderful designer, and Frank managed and accomplished the even harder task of implementing the designs and overcoming all problems. Their teamwork, organization, and leadership throughout the project were most impressive.
Yes. Having had projects done by other reputable architects and contractors (on my house) I was truly amazed as well as pleased by how much better (and nicer!) Carnemark is. Your skill, courtesy and organization are a winning combination.
We asked Carnemark not merely to update our space, but to transform it. They did so. It designed to meet our needs and wants and the limitations of the space, and gave us a more open, comfortable, and efficient living area.
Their greatest strength is execution.
Extremely pleased with the quality of the work performed on this job and their previous work for us. Highly professional and conscientious, both in the design phase and in construction. Would gladly recommend them to others.
Very high quality of workmanship and attention to detail. Excellent execution overall.
We would work with them again as well.
Very high level of service and professionalism-which is what we expect and why we worked with them.
Frank Sis and Mike Stehlik did excellent work. They are talented, professional and really nice guys.
We do not work with a lot of upholstery so I'm not sure.
Thank you for asking though.
