Mark Buelow, and the Distinctive Remodeling Solutions team, were fabulous to work with. The preliminary pricing and plans were transparent, the project began when promised, the contractors arrived in mass on time, and any changes, edits, issues were addressed cooperatively. The final product was more than we dreamed! Mark and his architect took an idea for an addition and it became a beautiful indoor/outdoor space!
Mark, Kane, Jenny, and Ryan worked together as a great Renovation Team. I was out of the Country for most of the renovation period, and I completely trusted and relied on their expertise advice and professionalism. The end result is not only amazing aesthetically and functionally, I am confident the structural revisions will withstand the test of time. I couldn't have asked for a better renovation team. Highly recommended!
Highly reputable, good work, reliable and handles situations fairly when the minor things go wrong. I have used Distinctive Remodeling Solutions 3 different times now - a bathroom, mud room and powder room remodel, a hardwood and stair remodel, and a upstairs hardwood and kitchen remodel with exterior repairs.
I highly recommend Mark and his team. We were especially pleased with quality of the workmanship, attention to detail, Kane, and the quality and timeliness of subs.
What we like about DRS is their attention to detail in budgeting and in execution, and project completion follow up.
Working with Distinctive Remodeling Solutions was a fantastic experience and I highly recommend them. From start to finish I was very pleased with their attention to detail, responsiveness and quality of work.
Mark and his team were very professional, responsive, organized, honest, thorough, on time, and pleasant to work with. Planning process took awhile, but it just made the project itself proceed smoothly with very few surprises.
From the very first meeting to the final completion the attention to detail was excellent, the job came in on time on budget. I would highly recommend them and will be using them for all our future projects.
They did a great job and I highly recommend them. Project Manager Kane is awesome!
Problem Resolution - Provided good solutions and a willingness to solve the issue quickly and to our satisfaction.
Professional & Organized - This is one of their strengths.
Additional Comments - Mark took the time to go over the entire process. They make sure you are getting what you are looking for. Unless you are someone who constantly changes their mind, I don't see how they cannot bring your vision to life. The contract, which protects them AND you, was detailed and precise. You know exactly what you are getting when you get to the point of signing it. Are they the cheapest? No. Do you get exactly what you pay for? Absolutely. Were there any hidden surprises? No. Would I recommend them? Without a doubt and already have!
The quality of work and process by Mark and Distinctive Remodeling is bar none the best contractor experience I've ever had. Everything was clearly communicated, responded to quickly, and done with excellent quality and workmanship. I highly recommend giving Mark and his crew a call for any remodeling needs you might have.

Distinctive stands by their word. Mark delivered what was expected even with the limited input we gave, he designed and built what what we wanted and the replacement portico provided definite added value to our home. His project management team was great to work with and had a 'can do 'attitude, even when they had to find rare materials to replace old style building materials with a modern match. His roofing team put a beautiful roof on the house and really made us happy we chose Distinctive. We stayed in the budget and Mark's team delivered what was expected--no surprises with true value. Thanks!!!
I have worked with Distinctive on a number of projects throughout the past 7 years. Mark and his team are very professional and take much pride in their work. I cannot stress enough how wonderful their communication is and very responsive to any follow up questions or issues.
Distinctive Remodeling Solutions were true professionals. They acted with integrity and delivered timely and high quality work. I recommend them without reservation.
I have worked with the team at Distinctive Remodeling for a number of years through various remodeling projects. Their professionalism and attention to detail is excellent. I would highly recommend them for any remodeling project.
The team at Distinctive Remodeling did an amazing job remodeling our kitchen last Fall. The entire experience was better and less stressful than we expected based on our previous experiences with remodeling contractors. The final result is awesome and completely transformed the feel of our house. From his designer Steve to his project manager Kane and all the subs in between, there wasn't a weak link. It's refreshing to deal with a contractor that does 100% of what he says he's going to do. Thanks Mark!
We are very happy with Distinctive Remodeling Solutions' (DRS) work! Our bathroom, bedroom and powder room were beautifully transformed from 80s to contemporary look. Through planning and execution, they always displayed professionalism and were very reliable and organized.
They were wonderful to work with. Their quality was excellent. I felt that I definitely got what I paid for from a quality perspective, and I would use them again.

Areas Of Satisfaction - The professionalism. They put together a project work plan and stuck to it.
Lead Source - Two neighbors on my block used them.
While we have a handsome kitchen and laundry room remodel, the process and experience to get there was not easy. Our time investment was substantially higher than one would anticipate by hiring a project manager. And, while our outcome is attractive and receives many compliments, it is less than what we would have expected to receive for the investment of dollars and time.
We are SO happy with our newly remodeled kitchen! Mark and his team of experts helped us to make our dream kitchen a reality. He gave us the best choices of quality products to choose from and helped us form a workable plan! With remarkable contractors to impliment the process, our experience was realively stress free and very exciting! We LOVE Distinctive Remodeling Solutions and would be proud to encourage others to use their services!
Areas Of Satisfaction - There were good trustworthy people working with us throughout the length of the project.
We interviewed several different contractors for our renovation. We chose Distinctive Remodeling Solutions because Mark, the owner, provided us with the most upfront information and provided us with an initial vision of the direction we would go in. We also had an opportunity to meet with the kitchen designer from Inspirations and the interior designer from MODA before making a commitment which was critical. Their joint vision helped us to move forward with Mark. We are not disappointed. The subcontractors were marvelous and designed us a home that we never anticipated and one that we could never do on our own! The renovation took 4 months and it went so smoothly which is a tribute to Kane, the on-site project manager, who excels at organization and coordination. He also has a very keen eye and wants everything to be "perfect" and wants the client to be "pleased". We are very pleased with our decision to work with Distinctive Remodeling Solutions and would definitely use them again.
The demo is dirty, long, and not easy to live thru. We were prepared for the ups and downs, but it is still a difficult time. In the end we love the bathroom, so we are happy.
Strong sensitivity to quality design. Creative and cost effective skills in identifying and solving design and construction issues that arise during construction. Excellent technical and managment skills; detailed tracking of change order scope of work and costs.
We are both pleased and proud of our main floor project done by Distinctive Remodeling Solutions. From the start, Mark's vision surpassed ours, and Kane Hawkin's (Project Manager) execution has provided us with beautiful and functional spaces that our family enjoys on a daily basis. How much more could you ask for in a remodel? The services provided by Moda Floors & Interiors and Bell Cabinetry were invaluable. Furthermore, every craftsman, from painters to chimney to electricians, who entered our home was professional, knowledgeable and courteous. With two young children in a busy neighborhood over a 6 month period of time, this was very crucial to us.Distinctive Remodeling Solutions truly lives up to its very name!
Distinctive Remodeling Solutions paid attention to all details. They would change and fix things that I did not even see. Their people were extremely professional and went out of their way to be helpful and accomadating. Who else would feed your bird for you!

Additional Comments - All-in-all the best contractor I've ever dealt with. Very different experience than all the rest from first contact right through work completion and follow up afterwards.
Areas Of Satisfaction - There were no surprises, either in costs or scheduling, and there was great communication.
Professional & Organized - They are very organized and very professional.
Communication - Communication was the highlight of the experience.
Additional Comments - It's a great company, far better than a lot of the companies we talked to.
Problem Resolution - outstanding attitude toward high quality and customer satisfaction
Value - Scheduling went very well. For the size of the project, we're happy with the finished product.
Additional Comments - Our biggest concern on this project was cutting a 10-foot wide hole in the unfinshed space over our three-bay garage and adding a three-window shed dormer. Our home was designed by a well-regarded local architect and we wanted the added dormer to look consistent with the rest of the house. We are very pleased with the final results---the addition looks like it was part of the original construction. In addition, the overall workmanship was excellent and, throughout the process, Distinctive Remodeling kept the site exceptionally clean. They kept us well-informed and up to date with all the steps in the process. We are pleased to give Distinctive Remodeling an unqualified recommendation.
Additional Comments - The overall process was very good and very professional. I would highly recommend Mark and his team to anyone.
