Several years ago, one of our clients moved to Dublin, Ohio, to be closer to her family. Although she loves her 4-year-old 3,200 sq. ft. home, she just felt like it wasn’t complete. She hired The Cleary Company—specifically its Home Services offering—to install and paint new crown molding throughout several rooms on the first and second floors of her home.

Not only does the Cleary Team design and build large remodeling projects, but with the 2020 launch of our new division, Home Services by The Cleary Company, we can also complete smaller projects. Our experienced Carpenters can tackle those home upgrade items on your list that need professional attention.

What is your favorite part of your remodeled spaces by our Home Services team?

The house looks completed. The new crown moldings matches the chunky trim and beefy baseboards. It just feels cozy and homey.

Why did you choose The Cleary Company for your renovation project?

I had reached out to a handyman who has helped me with several cosmetic updates since I moved in. He did was unable to undertake a project of this scope, so he recommended I call his friend George Cleary who owns The Cleary Company. I checked out their website and liked what I saw.

With so many tradespeople out there, it’s hard to know who you can trust or who does quality work. I really like The Cleary Company. They are reputable. I will hang on to them and use them for future projects.

What did you like most about working with The Cleary Company and Home Services?

Their staff was my favorite part, the people are great.

John Coleman came out first and talked to me about the process and explained the contract. He was very informative, answered all of my questions and was prompt.

I loved AJ, the carpenter who did all of the work. AJ is truly a craftsman! It was clear from the very first day he knew how to hang crown molding and it was second nature to him. AJ did so much and was so kind and helpful. He is amazing and did it all himself! He treated my house like it was his own property. He kept everything neat and clean. He was so respectful and would tell me when he was going to arrive and leave. He kept me informed and in the loop with the progress. This allowed me to go on with my day-to-day planning.

Mike came and checked everything multiple times during the project. This kept everything moving forward. I especially appreciated him being here when the painters came. They were another company that works with The Cleary Company, but I really didn’t know who they were. Since I really don’t like having strangers in my house, Mike monitored their progress, checked in with me and with the painters. His presence provided a calming effect for me. And the painters did a beautiful job!

What advice would you offer to someone who is thinking of remodeling their home?

First, do your homework. The internet is filled with a lot of information and it may not all be that accurate. The Cleary Company’s website was very informative. I appreciated the bios and photographs of everyone that works there.

And second, plan what you want done in your home and really think throught the scope of work. Expectations may not be met if you have not given your project proper forethought.

If you were asked to explain in one word why you choose to do business with The Cleary Company and its Home Services division, what would it be?

Integrity. Because even after the project was finished, they reached out to make sure I was happy. Mike came and inspected the project to be sure I was satisfied. They reminded me that if anything happened in the next 2 years, they would be there to take care of it.
