Great - Jack Wilson of Stellar Remodeling worked with us closely to provide a detailed estimates (we went through 4 revisions) before we started the work. (Initially our eyes were bigger than our wallet). We also had a several month delay on our part after we signed the contract, then once we gave the go ahead to start the work we had another family matter which caused a further delay. Jack and his team, Cal and Toby, were more than accommodating, never pressuring us to get started, and always helping us get various components scheduled that worked best for us. As far as the work itself went, we couldn't be happier with the outcome. Our Master Bath is wonderful, the other bath rooms look fantastic, as does the kitchen and dining areas. All of the work was done at a very high quality, and Cal and Toby were always there to explain what they were doing and to show us the "surprises" that hide behind the floor and drywall when you start tearing the existing walls and floors up. Fortunately, there were no major ones. Regarding the price - Stellar was not the lowest (nor highest) bid we received for the work we wanted done. However, it was (in our opinion) a fair price, and it was a great value in terms of what we got for the money. This was our first ever serious remodel adventure. We learned a lot in the process, and Jack Cal and Toby (along with their specialized subcontractors) were always there to help us along through the process. We also used Stellar to do the interior painting as part of the remodel, so coordination between the remodelers and the painters was easy. (see separate review for the painting) We would absolutely use Stellar Painting and Remodeling again, and happily recommend them. Finally, Stellar provided us with a list of their preferred vendors for specific remodel components - tile, shower glass, granite countertops, wood floors. Although we could have used others of our own choosing, there was a financial benefit to using their main suppliers, and there was definitely a higher level of responsiveness to our needs from the suppliers based on the fact that the job was a "Stellar" project. We would therefore recommend that if you use Stellar, you seriously consider using their major suppliers as well.
