Our project is historic and unique, DuKate always has the skills and the knowledge to deal with and successfully execute the projects in a timely and economical fashion. I never have to worry about the quality or follow up on work to be done because they are on top of each job and communicate well. I will always use them and would recommend them highly to anyone.
The experience level of every person along the way...their knowledge...their patience with the homeowner's questions...their excellent quality of work. Fabulous.
DuKate Fine Remodeling is just as it is called - "FINE". Remodeling is done with the utmost care and consideration for the home owner and the property. Working within the original structure of the home makes new additions seem like they are original.
They did a great job matching wood work with the original in color and milling. It is perfect. I also appreciate the fact that I am working with those who have a Christian faith that brings fairness to a job site and bid process.
I was thoroughly satisfied. I especially like using DuKate for they seem to understand our 100 year old home and things added compliment the style and period of the home.
We had never completed a project like this before. It was our first renovation project. From the very beginning with the design of the layout to referring us to vendors to pick our cabinets, flooring and such, DuKate Fine Remodeling was very professional and personable. We are sure "Fine" is in the name of the company because of the quality of work they provide. I would not hesitate to refer them to our family or friends and we would and will use them again on our next project (as soon as this one is paid for!)
I am completely satisfied, and will use them in the future.
I was most satisfied with their professionalism and timeliness.
We have a historic property that has several 100+ year old limestone fountain features that we have had a hard time figuring out the right thing to do to repair it properly in a cost effective way. When we met Kevin Houston he was very professional and knowledgeable about the repairs that needed to be done. The proposal that was put together was reasonable. During the restoration project Kevin and Craig were always courteous and kept us abreast of their work progress. When we ran into a problem with paint color for the limestone surface they worked hard and spent extra time to find and mix a color we are very happy with! They stayed to the proposed budget and finishes in a very timely manner. We will always use them in the future for our repairs in the Irwin gardens and would highly recommend them to others. The Irwin property is a bed and breakfast/ event space and we never had any disruption to our guests or activities. Thank you!
Value. Professionalism. Expertise.
I thought they did a good job, and I appreciate their workmanship.
We have worked with Mike for 25 years, we adore him, he has plenty of integrity and is very trustworthy.
My experience working with DuKate Fine Remodeling was Mike Dukate did a very professional job organizing our project and the staff did an excellent job on the work.
Every area was completed with superior workmanship given to the finest detail, absolute timeliness, & maximum cleanliness.
Our experience with them was excellent. To work with someone that professional these days is unusual. They are someone who communicates with you.They work with you and tell you what they are doing and what's going on with what they are doing. They are great, the do an excellent job and I would recommend them to friends and family. I felt like I could trust them and I was comfortable with them being here in my home.
Professional and courteous are two words I would use to describe the personnel at Dukate Remodeling. High quality workmanship and pride in their craft seem to be hallmarks of the company. The contractors and subcontractors were friendly, clean and effecient. All of my concerns were addressed promptly and I was kept informed on the progress.
My family is very pleased with the remodel just recenlty completed by DuKate. Originally, we were planning on an add on along with a remodel. After spending a lot of time with us, Mike guided us toward repurposing areas in our home...at a greatly reduced cost to us. We are very pleased with the results. The thing that most pleased us is Mike's integrity, compassion and honesty.
