Gary & Holly's Kitchen
A couple of details as the work progressed: Our kitchen had 8" or so soffits below the ceiling, so Michael's plans had cabinets up to the soffits. We thought that plumbing and ductwork were inside, but when he opened them up, nothing there, so he suggested taking the soffits out and having the cabinets extend to the ceiling, which we did, and he was able to immediately order different cabinets, with minimal impact on the schedule. While installing pantry cabinets, Michael noted that an additional recessed light would provide better illumination, so he did that (at no additional charge).
He took the time to plumb and square one of the walls, rather than simply 'make do' with what was there. He was able to 'work his magic' and route the microwave vent to the outside - took a bit of doing, but he got it done. We had an issue with one of the backsplash tiles after the job was done - Michael immediately took care of it, getting everything done in one day so as to not inconvenience us more than needed. I could go on, but there's no need - if you're looking for a contractor who will provide outstanding service, take care of every detail, and won't be satisfied until you are completely happy, Michael Budman of MAB Home Services is the person to contact. I recommend him without reservation.
Kitchen Remodeling Gaithersburg
I'll start by saying that Michael Budman is a TRUE professional, dedicated to making sure that the work he does is absolutely the best. The project started with Michael coming to our house for an initial consultation. He immediately had some good ideas (relocating the refrigerator, shortening the length of a counter, etc). Shortly afterwards, he provided detailed drawings and an estimate, as well as references for us to check (which I did - all extremely positive). Based on this information, we decided that Michael was the person to do our remodel. Since our schedule was open, we agreed on a time for him to start for the estimated 5 week job. One important note - Michael would call in a plumber or electrician as needed, but other than that he did the work himself - again ensuring only the highest quality.
