Kitchen and Bath Remodel Specialist
Project Date: February 2013
Project Price: more than $100,000
Our project consisted of an three car garage addition, complete remodel of the master bathroom and the kitchen and some updating for the powder room. We were very pleased with the quality of work that John Russell provided for us and would hire him again for any future project. I believe he can do anything - his design work is outstanding and we knew exactly what was going on throughout the entire process. He really listens to what your want and works very hard to make it happen.

I have used John for several projects ranging from taking out walls, to replacing windows, to a complete kitchen remodel. His work is not done until he is satisfied. He knows my likes and dislikes and suggests products and finishes that work beautifully. I can trust him and his men in my home, even if I am not there. I feel that his work has increased the value of our home and made it more livable. I look forward to the bathroom remodel on which we are collaborating.

We originally contacted John for a repair of a leaking stand-alone shower that had been repaired twice before. He described the needed work which was almost a complete rebuild, but then suggested it would be much more useful/enjoyable as well as helpful to the home value to replace the old & unused whirlpool tub in the center of the bathroom with a new walk-in shower and eliminate the old, leaking shower altogether.
He described his previous projects where he had done this and provided many details on how it could be done and various design features that could be utilized. We accepted his offer to provide a quote based on the new scope. He came back within days with drawings, a schedule, more suggestions and a bid. After considerable discussion about how the project would be managed, we signed a contract.
The work proceeded well. John was regularly on site and kept a close eye on progress. He fully explained what was going on and how they were going to handle the work. Not only does John manage the work, but periodically he will do the work himself as he did on some plumbing and electrical. He has the knowledge of how to do the work which allows him to police how the subcontractors are doing.
There were several Change Orders, some a result of unknowns which he warned us about and many others where we decided to make upgrades as we refined our design once we saw it unfolding. John was upfront about the costs involved and assured we were okay with all aspects of the changes prior to proceeding with them.
John does not allow for substandard work. While he knows you can't get perfection, he insists that everything be done to the customer's satisfaction, if not his own. There were two measurement errors by subcontractors that required rework and caused substantial delays. John stayed on top of these to ensure the end product was correct as well as mitigating the delays as best he could. The project ended up taking 3 months versus the projected 2, but there was little that John could have done to stop that. Overall, we were very pleased with the work and the end result.
What you get with John that is different from many contractors is his combination of project management and design skills. Not only can he coordinate the necessary crews and manage them well, he can provide design guidance based on his 30 years of experience and his innate design skills. He knows what works well together from a design standpoint and knows how to build the designs. His business mantra is "Residential Artistry" and that describes well the service he provides.emodeling in Lake Jackson

John Russell has done six projects for us over the past nine years.
He is very particular that the work is done correctly and makes sure any of the contractors he uses meet his standards.
He did a bathroom remodel ,kitchen update ,bedroom updates adding crown moulding and shelves.
We also recommended John to our daughter when she bought a home in the area and she has been happy with the work he has done.
I would recommend him.
