We discovered A Better Home (ABH) company during the 2016 Remodeled Home Tour. Our 70 plus year old home was in need of several updates. The craftsmanship of their work impressed us, and continues to impress us after 2 remodel projects with them.

We delayed writing this review to assess how their work would withstand the test of time. Our basement remodel was completed in 2017 (mud room, laundry room, family room, bathroom, storage room, and all new utilities). ABH was extremely helpful in the design plans, selection of products, and the building process. It is equally important to know their sub-contractors are held, by ABH, to their high standards.

Things went so well in 2017, we felt comfortable going forward with more remodeling in 2018. This involved a kitchen, 2 bathrooms, and 2 hallways.

The outcome of our remodel projects are beyond what we could have imagined. Almost every day we are thankful for how much more livable our home now is. One and two years later, the remodel projects are looking as good now as upon completion.

Words cannot express how grateful we are for the help ABH has given us. Beyond being their customers, we feel like we’ve found new friends along the way. This is a company that is honest, true to their word, skillful in older home remodels, and has years of experience in the industry.

We were fortunate to have had them as our general contractor. Indeed we now have ‘A Better Home’.

I have only good things to say about Not Just Kitchens. On the design side, [they] really listened when we explained our ideas, and helped us to get the look we wanted. On the practical side, Jeff has put together a great team of skilled professionals, and his standards are the highest. The quality of work is excellent, and the people who do it are experienced, courteous, and a pleasure to have in your home. I’d recommend Not Just Kitchens to anyone.”

“NJK transformed our small, disorganized kitchen into a lovely, workable space. Not only did NJK have brilliant design skills, they were also fun to work with. Jeff spent many hours trying to match the stain of our new woodwork to that of the old — it was perfect. We could sense how much they loved working in our older bungalow. We are now considering adding a bathroom upstairs. We will definitely be bringing NJK in to do the work when we are ready.”

“I have had work done by A Better Home over the span of 13 years: kitchen, hardwood flooring, and a bathroom. They are always on top of things and easy to communicate with. Once your project starts, the owner is there to follow-up on the work, almost daily. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a solid contractor for their home remodeling.”
