Mike Corrao and Remodeling Alliance are a great find. We met Mike a in 2003 when we wanted to finish our basement, and we haven't looked for another contractor since. Whether the job is big or small, Mike is our only call.
With our basement, Mike went above and beyond our expectations. He made sure we were up to date every step of the way. He made sure things were done that we had no idea needed to be done. We were adding a bedroom in the basement, and Mike made sure the walls were thicker and insulated so playroom noise was more filtered. In the bathroom, he reinforcing walls in multiple spots for towel bars or hooks to make sure we had options when installing them. We had no idea about these sorts of things, but Mikes experience made our finished basement a great addition to our home. He was very responsive after the job was complete when we had a leak in the new shower.
Since our basement job, he has replaced our gutters, painted our living room and put up molding, remodeled our kitchen, replaced our front door and back door sliders, and put in a transom window. He has gladly stopped by to discuss projects and give estimates on projects we were just thinking about.
I have learned to rely on Mike's expertise and experience when making home improvement decisions. He knows brands, stores, suppliers, building codes, paints, tiles, you name it. We have relied on his opinion/suggestions many times. He has access to plumbers and
electricians who care as much as he does.
Mike is a true find. His prices are fair, and his work is superior. He and his crew are timely and never leave a mess. They take the time to cover the floors and doorways when needed for protection. Mike and his team have even worked late and on weekends to finish up a job. I totally trust Mike and his crew in our home without supervision. They are all around good people.
We would highly recommend Mike Corrao and Remodeling Alliance for any home improvement job you may need. You'll be glad you did.
A few anecdotes:
When redoing our kitchen, I was having trouble finding the right color paint. I spent about $75 on those small paint cans trying out colors. On a Friday night, we returned home from a baseball game at about 7:30 pm. Mike had left a message telling me to look at a few paints he thought I might like on the Benjamin Moore color wheel. He cared enough about the job he and his crew were doing to make help me make a decision.
The transom window Mike installed came with custom molding, since the window is rounded. Well, the molding was too short. Before I had a chance to call the window store to get this problem resolved, Mike and his team came up with the idea of adding a keystone to the center of the molding to make it fit. It worked!! And, it looks great.
The front door lock we ordered when we had our door replaced was missing the cylinder that the key goes in. I had to order a new one but in the mean time, Mike just put the old cylinder in the door. As soon as I received the new cylinder, I called Mike and he was at my house the next day.
These are just a few of the stories I've told about Remodeling Alliance. We've become spoiled with having someone like Mike and his team, who have knowledge and experience and who care and are responsive.
