20 Years of Multiple Remodels & Lifestyle Transitions
Meet Donna. She’s been a client of The Cleary Company since 1999. She hired George to build a 2-story addition on her cape cod home in Upper Arlington OH. That first project included adding a family room, master suite, plus another bathroom to accommodate her growing family. Since then we’ve also remodeled her kitchen, mudroom, basement, garage and last year a Universal Design full bathroom remodel. Donna is not only a client but a cheerleader for The Cleary Company, by referring several family members, friends and neighbors over the years.
Why did you originally choose to hire George and The Cleary Company? And why do you continue to choose them?
We had several proposals for our addition, but when George came over we just felt it was right, there was an immediate connection. He's kind, compassionate and he really listened to what we wanted and needed. It was such a huge project and we were concerned about hiring the right person. You get more than just a construction company when you work with The Cleary Company. They really become part of your family. We love the transformation of our tiny cape cod into a home our family could grow into.
What's been your favorite part of working with The Cleary Comany?
It's hands-down the people. George is an amazing soul and he attracts really good people. Even his subcontractors are great. When your living in your house through a remodel project you have to trust the people you're inviting to be around your family. We're just thrilled with all of the remodels The Cleary Company has built for our family. We also really enjoyed having Dan and bath2BATH for our bathroom remodel last year!
It had been several years since we'd hired The Cleary Company for a remodel but when my husband had an unexpected stroke we contacted George for help with our bathroom to accommodate his limitations. Our home was not set up for a wheelchair and ADA standards which all had to be done before he could come home from the hospital. They worked tirelessly to get it all finished in such a short time frame. George is someone we trusted with all of the decisions. Dan and I communicated with post-it notes throughout the project because after the stroke I was spending all of my days at the hospital.
What advice would you offer to someone considering a remodel of their home?
Remember whomever you hire you're inviting them into your home for the duration of the project. You have to feel comfortable with their daily presence in your home. You can't put a dollar amount on that piece of the process. The Cleary Company product is top notch and first rate. George stands behind everything they do and Rob makes sure everything is done right.
