Cowdin completed my project in a very professional manner, The workmanship is outstanding. The materials and attention to details met our expectations. There were challenges with timing commitments that did not meet expectations. That being said I believe a delay in completion is significantly overshadowed by the collaborative working relationship we built with Cowdin and the craftsmanship that was built into our project.
Honest and open dialogue with Rick during the build process. We were able to work through many complex issues through professional discussions in an open and honest context. We are also satisfied with the master carpenters Rob and John Williams.
We would like to invite the Cowdin Design + Build team for a cocktail, open house get together now that the project is complete. This will give the Cowdin team to see and experience the beautiful space they created.
I was most satisfied with the design process.
I was most satisfied with the architectural design.
Very happy with the timeframe completion of the project, especially watching other neighbors have nightmare projects
Overall we were very satisfied. I think that Cowdin did a fantastic job on the design phase, was very competent with all of the codes/regulations, great communication, had a great team @Cowdin and good subcontractors by and large. Project was completed on time, and no complaints from neighbors.
The total experience was outstanding !!! From the first day I walked into their office until the last bit of dust was cleaned away !! Fantastic team !! Very professional !!
They have done many projects in my home and I am in awe of every one of them. They exceeded my expectations every time.
We are especially impressed with the design and quality aspect. Everything meets our comfort requirements and looks beautiful at the same time.
We love our beautiful new kitchen. It was a small space to work with but Phil and Bill were very creative with the design.
Quality of workmanship is excellent. Design followed our goals and objectives. It's a beautiful space.
Referred by other local contractors / design build firms that couldn't handle the timeline we needed.
We love our beautiful new kitchen, very unique design and working with Cowdin made it a painless remodeling experience!
The end result: I love my kitchen and bath space! The kitchen space completely changed how I am able to entertain and host events in my home. The installation of the kitchen island created a gathering space for everyone to enjoy. No one is regulated to the kitchen and cut off from the rest of the space. The bathroom is now a tranquil, modern space for me to enjoy.
In the small details! The owner noticed I was left handed and suggested placements based on that fact. It's a small thing, but has made using certain kitchen fixtures less awkward and made for a truly customized space.
The whole project turned out great. The kitchen is phenomenal and the master closet turned out just the way we wanted it.
Most customer complaints are what I hear is about timing and scheduling. The scheduling and timing of Cowdin Design + Build is right on.
Although we had a small job we worked with a great team. From design to the electricians, to completion we couldn't have been more pleased.
Cowdin Design + Build recently completed a basement (walkout) finishing project, on-time, on-budget, and the work was outstanding. Their crews were fabulous to work with, from the carpenter, to the electrician, to the painter and especially to the designer and on-site project manager, we can't say enough how pleasant the experience was. We had looked at a total of 5 companies before choosing Cowdin and wanted someone big enough to be there when we needed them, but small enough to make our project a priority and accommodate any changes or wishes we might have. We definitely made the right choice, and will use them in the future, and certainly recommend them to anyone we can, they have a customer for life and we are thrilled with the completed project and the partnership we had throughout the entire process.
From the first time we met at the Novi Home Show and throughout the whole design and build process Bill and his staff were very professional and made sure we were comfortable with all aspects of the process. Questions and concerns were promptly addressed. We especially like their website where all documentation was stored, design documents, budget and change orders, photos and selections are easily accessed.Bill or Jake came to our home every day to check on the progress to insure we were satisfied. Every sub contractor took every precaution to keep our home and project area clean and safe. The sub contractors were very professional the quality of their work exceeded our expectations.We had planned to do this project for 2 years and went to the big box stores for quotes but never felt comfortable with their design approach or contractors. On a whim we went to the home show and after talking to Bill we gained the confidence to go forward with the Master Bathroom remodel. We now have a bathroom like you would see in a magazine or on a home remodeling show...spectacular.
The design process and expertise of Michelle delivered beyond our expectations.
We met Bill Cowdin at the Novi home show and we were impressed with their approach to design through finished project.
We were most satisfied with Cowdin Design + Build's communication and organization.
The design/designer Dawn was excellent. My space small spaces were utilized extremely well. The final product is stunning to everyone who sees it.I would recommend the tile setters to anyone. They were extremely hard working, detailed, excellent quality.
We had a few things noticed during the process that didn't seem right to us. Each time, Bill quickly responded to our questions by coming out and looking at the issues. He did everything possible to the issues to our satisfaction. He was very kind and very professional. Hands down the best experience with a contractor I have had in this regard.
I really enjoyed working with the Cowdin Team. I think next time, I will be a little more involved in the up front design phase to ensure everything is properly displayed on the drawing, but all in all I was happy with the completed project.
I was very pleased with how Bill responded to our questions and concerns.
We did a 4-season addition with porch and mudroom area off the kitchen/ dining areas. We also re-roofed the entire house, did an attic insulation blow-over, and painted walls and refinished hardwood floors throughout the existing living areas. It was a big project spanning two months non-stop. We had interviewed 3 design/build companies before selecting Cowdin, and we couldn't be happier with the result! At every step, Bill ensured our comfort and minimized the disruption to our daily life. Communication and follow-through was excellent. Our wish to collaborate was welcomed, and he shared our collective creative vision via CAD design and rendering tools to help us visualize the project during the planning and decision making stages. To help us participate in the construction phases, he used a web-based project planning tool called BuilderTREND that allowed us to monitor progress and approve change orders online. The project started and ended on-time with excellent coordination among the many contractors involved. Cowdin focuses on build a relationship with us. He blends technology and soft-skills on the client side with top-notch contractors on the execution side. In the end we are as delighted with our experience as we are with the results.November 3, 2013
Really impressed with the way the schedule was met with so many different contractors.
I enjoyed their insight and advise on how to proceed with our project. They stayed in touch and kept us informed. I would recommend them to anyone.
Very professional and communicate well as the job progresses. Do not attempt to over sell or include unwanted extras.Knowledgable of available products and have courteous crews. Quality work and materials.
Quality of work and communication as the job progressed.
Cowdin provided us with good workmanship at a fair price. They were always open to our comments and suggestions. Michelle was very helpful with picking our colors and other decorating ideas. Bill and all his contracted staff were super easy to work with and we are looking forward to a finished basement soon.
They understood our budget and worked within it. There were no hidden costs. They were always professional and friendly. The people they contracted with such as their carpenter was equally as professional and timely.
I am very satisfied with the quality of the work and the overall end product.
I would use Cowdin Design + Build again. I recommend them to anybody.
I was most satisfied with the way problems were resolved. If a contractor did not complete the job to my complete satisfaction, Bill Cowdin made sure that it was corrected and that I was fully satisfied. The workmanship is excellent.
They worked well with us and got everything done in a timely fashion. I am very happy with the whole outcome and I would recommend them highly.
I was satisfied with the workmanship, materials, and scheduling.
