In Feb 2014 contractors and trades were hired to rebuild my condo kitchen from flood damages. After 15 months of dealing with bad contractors and terribly incompetent sub-trades hired by the IC for this rebuild, I still did not have a kitchen. Editing the profanity from this review lets just say that my final freak out resulted in true professionals being hired to fix the job, enter, Florkowsky’s.
I initially met with Jason Florkowsky who came out to the condo to take measurements, and continued to work directly with him throughout the process of bringing my kitchen design to fruition. My must haves were semi gloss lacquer upper cabinets and continuous horizontal grain walnut base cabinets. Unfortunately for Florkowsky’s the kitchen plans passed on to them from the GC, for lack of better words…. were a joke. Jason was great though, very knowledgeable, patient and took the time to ask questions in order to understand my vision and put together a solid plan.
Florkowsky’s was hired approximately Feb 30/15. They removed the old kitchen cabinets and built and installed brand new cabinets and I had a fully functional kitchen by May 6/15. Overall the timeframe to completion was a bit long however I can’t fault Florkowsky’s entirely for that.
Here are a couple of examples of what this company will do to ensure the client is happy:
1) I could not decide on the finish/ how much gloss I wanted on the upper cabinetry. I finally decided on 25 %, the upper cabinets were all installed and when I saw them I didn’t like the finish, it was too matte. The installers removed all the doors, took them back to the shop, resprayed them with 40% and reinstalled them.
2) ordered multiple sheets of walnut veneer until I found the “ones”
3) I picked out all the cabinet hardware, it was ordered and delivered and then I changed my mind. I found some other cabinet hardware online that I preferred and Jason got it for me!
Seriously, when I think back to what Jason went through with me, my confusion and indecision, he gets a gold star for patience. To be perfectly honest, considering the last 15 months of hell I had just endured I may not have been the easiest person to work with but everyone at Florkowsky’s, especially Jason really did their best to make sure I got what I wanted and I was happy.
Would I recommend this company? Yes, in a heartbeat! Combine all of the above with quality materials and craftsmanship and impeccable attention to detail, it’s a win win and what you will get if you hire Florkowsky’s. This is a company that truly cares about the customer. I thought I was picky but Florkowsky’s installers exceeded my expectations and I could not be happier. I love my kitchen so much, if I could… I would marry it, lol!
Many thanks to Florkowsky’s, special thanks to Jason : )
