Doug has been awesome to work with! He and his crew are amazing craftsmen and more than that, amazing people. I’m glad we had them for all of our work!
We are writing this letter to let people know about the positive experience we had with our kitchen cabinet install with Straight Up Remodeling. We worked with Doug Straight through Lowe’s Port Orchard. Our install was not easy, as Doug had to deal with one of the kitchen walls that was made up entirely of brick from the floor to the vaulted wood ceiling. The brick wall was made of used brick and the surfaces were very uneven and during the process found that the openings for appliances were not vertical. It was a bit of a challenge.
Most of the cabinets today are modular, and working various spacers into the plan were needed so that you did not find you would be unable to open cabinet doors without hitting appliance handles or other door pulls. Doug had to order some extra molding to make things look finished. The cabinet company that we dealt with sent several items and they arrived damaged. New end panels had to be ordered, and it was necessary for Doug to make several extra trips.
To help speed our project up, he stayed late one night (after 7:00pm) to get the base cabinet units in place so that the counter top people could come in and make a template. He returned later to fine tune and adjust cabinet doors, and install upper cabinets and new pantry unit and cabinets on the brick wall.
We first came across Straight Up Remodeling online when we were looking for a residential general contractor to manage our kitchen remodeling project. This company had positive reviews about their fine finish carpentry, back splashes and tile flooring abilities which is exactly what we were looking for. They did such a great job for us that we continued to call them out for all of our home renovation and improvement needs. In the last year or so they have installed some custom closet systems, laundry and garage storage cabinets and some custom handrails, mantels and wood trim packages. They always do an amazing job, Doug is very detail oriented and goes out of his way to ensure you are happy with everything. We have even had them do some casework, hardwood floor installation and an entertainment media center at my place in Tacoma. I highly recommend this company.
I’m really impressed by your good work. I will gladly recommend your service to everyone I know.
Best General Contractor in all of Washington State! We have been hiring Straight Up Remodeling for years for all of our renovations and home improvements. They did all of the wood trim, fine finish carpentry and casework including custom handrails and mantels when we first moved into our house in Sequim. They are fine furniture makers that provide quality that you just can’t find in bulk furniture stores these days. We love our custom entertainment media center that matches our built in storage cabinets perfectly. They also built the custom closet system in our master bedroom and basically do all of our home remodeling and organization. The laundry and garage storage cabinets have made our house so much tidier and more pleasant to live in.
The hardwood floor looks beautiful! Your guys were very good and excellent at coming back for touch ups! I will recommend Straight Up Remodeling.!
Doug Straight’s installation of our relatively-complex kitchen cabinets/cupboards met the very high expectations established during our research and face-to-face pre-job discussion. Most impressive was his prompt/polite/professional approach to every aspect of the job.
Thank you for the great service and job you did. You aim to please and it shows. We will consider you for future remodels or rebuilds. Thanks again. The Lombardys
