Client Testimonials

 “Mark has done two significant home remodel jobs for me.  I was exceptionally pleased with both.  He is a first rate remodeler.  Very knowledgeable.  Very customer oriented.  Superior work quality.  Meticulous attention to detail. Very good subcontractor manager.  He seeks to fully understand the scope of work up front and prices it accordingly.  He wants to understand the customer budget and work within it.  Some items are fixed price and some are in the form of allowances due to the nature of the work.  Change orders are always discussed and priced up front.  He addresses unexpected situations calmly and always with an answer and alternatives.  He does high quality work and will not generally compromise with an inferior solution.  He puts together a detailed project schedule on the front end and generally stays within it barring unforeseen conditions. I would be hard pressed to find a more complete contractor for the job.  I would hire him 100 times over.  I am a contractor myself and know all the ins and outs of the business.  Mark runs a first class business.  You will be very pleased with him.” – Mr. Harbour, Alpharetta

 “The team at Distinctive Remodeling did an amazing job remodeling our kitchen last Fall. The entire experience was better and less stressful than we expected based on our previous experiences with remodeling contractors. The final result is awesome and completely transformed the feel of our house. The overall finished product turned out even better than we expected. From his designer Steve to his project manager Kane and all the subs in between,there wasn’t a weak link. It’s refreshing to deal with a contractor that does 100% of what he says he’s going to do. Thanks Mark!” – Mr.Burke

 “True Professionals Providing Quality Work – Distinctive worked with us in creating a fabulous new Master Bathroom.  Mark and his team were a pleasure to work with.  Questions/concerns were dealt with immediately and professionally. The project was completed in a timely manner and we could not be happier with the end result.  Mark listens to his clients’ wishes, is very detail oriented, and delivers a quality product. Our project manager, Kane, was also very organized and was on site nearly every day as the project progressed.  Calls and emails were returned immediately. I have seen other completed projects from Distinctive Remodeling Solutions including kitchens, exterior porches, and whole house renovations, and they are all beautifully completed.  I would recommend Distinctive for any remodeling project.  A great find!” Mr. and Mrs. Gallagher,  Roswell  

 “All-in-all the best contractor I’ve ever dealt with.  Very different experience than all the rest from first contact right through work completion and follow up afterwards. Quality of work, good communication and overall highly profession approach.   I’ve dealt with several contractors over the years and you are unique in your approach and your work.”  – Mr. Huntley, Cumming/Lake Lanier  

 “There will always be contractors who will probably give you a more “attractive” price, and some approached us during our selection phase, but none could compete with the commitment Distinctive Remodeling Solutions was able to make in terms of budget, timeline, and providing us the quality we wanted. Our renovation was worth every single penny (and then some)!” This was one of the most effortless projects I have ever dealt with. Distinctive came in with a firm fixed price contract, outlined all components of the project clearly in a detailed project plan, and provided excellent project management oversight to stay on-time and on-budget.”  – Mrs. Brooks, Brookhaven  

 “There were no surprises, either in costs or scheduling, and there was great communication.” Mrs. Griffin, Roswell 

 “Fabulous!  We didn’t have a single problem. Distinctive was great about making sure the design was planned and everything was ordered before they started demolition.  They came in at budget and ahead of schedule. They are one of the most professional companies we have dealt with, and it was a great experience. Our bathroom looks fantastic.” – Mrs. Gibbs, Dunwoody 

 As an engineer, it is in my nature to thoroughly research any project and our home’s renovation was certainly no different.  I was highly impressed with Distinctive’s project management and organization.  Distinctive’s great attention to detail, which I experienced from the beginning (no other contractor provided a full gant chart for our project during the initial selection interviews), ultimately influenced my selecting Distinctive for our extensive renovation.  We felt that if someone is detail-oriented enough to run a detailed project, they should be detailed enough to run a quality project.  We’re happy to note that the finished product is pretty amazing; the addition of about 1,500 SF and renovation of our existing living area was more luxurious than we could have ever imagined.  Thanks to the entire Distinctive team.” – Mr. Tedder, Brookhaven  

 “We are quite thankful to have found Distinctive Remodeling Solutions for our new kitchen and attic renovation.  It was critical to us to work with a remodeler whose craftsmanship melded the new with the old and whose professionalism was exemplary.  Distinctive was able to double our livable space and make the transition seamlessin our 1940s-era home.  From the beginning, they understood what we wanted in terms of balancing the aesthetic blending of old and new while keeping our objectives at the forefront.  Throughout the project, the Distinctive team waswell-organized, set and met project goals, and effectively managed the entire processincluding construction.  We love our new space that is more functional and livable thanks to Distinctive…and probably just as beautiful as the builder intended more than 60 years ago.” – Mr. Moreland, Collier Hills  

  “The systems used to estimate the project and time line are what helped us decide to use Distinctive.  Scheduling went very well. The project was large in size and very complex; we’re happy with the finished product.” – Mr. Buhrke, East Cobb  

 “On-site communication was excellent. Outstanding attitude toward high quality and customer satisfaction.Distinctive provided the quality of a high end builder while maintaining a personal touch.  At all levels, they are very sensitive to the needs of the customer.” – Mr. Youtie, Virginia Highlands 

 “Our home was designed by a well regarded local architect and we wanted the added dormer to look consistent with the rest of the house. We are very pleased with the final results – the addition looks like it was part of the original construction.  In addition, the overall workmanship was excellent and, throughout the process, Distinctive Remodeling kept the site exceptionally clean.  They kept us well informed and up to date with all the steps in the process.  We are pleased to give Distinctive Remodeling an unqualified recommendation.” – Mrs. Barnes, Alpharetta  

 “Being a professional athlete traveling across the country, I really wanted a home to come home to. A place that would be fun, functional, and stylish, as well as incorporate non-traditional spaces, such as a new garage for my growing car collection.  Distinctive customized my home’s complete renovation just for me.  They incorporated elements of my heritage with European materials and styling and provided a modern and inviting kitchen perfect for cooking, relaxing, and entertaining (my new favorite room).  The blending of functionality and beauty has created a personal sanctuary.” – Kari Lehtonen / Former Atlanta Thrashers Goaltender, Brookhaven  

 “One thing that established trust was that if someone of the team did not know the answer to something, they would tell me that they needed to find out.  I never felt that they were ever making anything up or moving forward without doing additional research.  The hours of detailed research before construction ever started made a world of difference. We were actually looking for basics, and appreciated that Distinctive didn’t push us toward anything more than we needed — and they finished EARLY … what a treat!” – Mrs. LaVigne, Atlanta  

 “This was my first remodeling experience and my builder was able to anticipate the answers before I could ask the questions. Also, they offered great advice for situations that I was not aware would happen.  I was extremely pleased with the choice I made in Distinctive Remodeling Solutions.” – Mr. Lach, Grant Park
