Mike Schuler, Ph.D. - client since June 2005

I had the good fortune of meeting Mike during the winter of 2005. I wanted some bookshelves made for my home office. Having just completed my Ph.D., I needed something to hold all the books; ..

... yet, I wanted something more than a storage unit. It needed to be something that truly celebrated the art of learning. Mike did three things very well: visualization, disciplined timeline, and superior craftsmanship. First, being indecisive, I had trouble visualizing the project. Mike spent a good couple of hours with me figuring out how the bookshelves were to look and "work" in my home office. We used a lot of paper and pencil to get the image just right before we purchased the product. Similarly, he helped me figure out what materials to use - we went through a lot of different options, and finally settled on Oak.

Secondly, while the bookshelves were being made, my books were in the garage - collecting dust and battling the elements of the winter months. While this project wasn't urgent, it was time sensitive. I wanted to get the bookshelves done within about a week of having met Mike. He took the materials to his home, finished the project, and helped me install the units (through the window!) within a week. I spoke with him once during the project, and he was clear with his update and honest with his timeline.

Finally, Mike's superior craftsmanship is drawing attention from anyone who comes in for a tour of my home. Without question, the bookshelves were the nicest piece of furniture in my home. My books have found a great resting place and I am so thankful to have met Mike for this important project.

I would hire him for another project because of his ability to help work out the details, he is honest and delivers when he says he'll deliver ... and finally because of the beautiful work he's done.

Mike Morales remodeled our basement in the fall of 2006. What was once an unfinished cement room has now become a great bathroom, playroom, and mechanical room.

Mike is very honest and an ethical man to work with. He works very hard and have high standards for his work. We felt he did a wonderful job, and we felt very comfortable having him in our home. We would highly recommend him and his remodeling company to anyone considering having work done in their house.

I would like to take a moment to share with you my experience with Classic Remodeling & Construction and the work they did in my home. Michael Morales remodeled 2.5 baths, a laundry room, my kitchen area plus...

renovated the main entryway from the three-season porch coming into the house. They also redesigned and rebuild my front entry, and build a new grade level deck with composite decking and white vinyl railings. (They) gutted and rebuilt an existing bathroom in the lower level and set it up for my senior citizen parents, making it handicap accessible with a walk in shower. They installed shower lighting, assistance bars, handicap stool, new and improved bath lighting and a new sink with easy to use hardware. They also widened the doorway opening so it is no walker/wheelchair accessible.

I can't thank (them) enough for their great recommendations and how much easier they have made life for my aging parents. (They) have so many great suggestions on improvements and what might work well in my home. They gutted and rebuilt another bath and half on the main floor for me. Flooring, lighting, new cabinets, stool, mirrors and their painting was so perfect. I've never been so pleasantly surprised at the level of detail they gave each task they did.

In the laundry room, they suggested I could get more space with some hanging shelves and to this day I don't know how I lived without the shelves. Flooring, lighting, painting, trim work, and all so perfect and functional. It looks great in both baths and laundry room.

The kitchen was major remodeling. There were counter tops, cupboards, back splash, new sink, hardware, all the door and drawer hardware, redoing some drawers, new ceiling lighting, recessed and hanging lights, new switch plates, electrical work and painting. All turned out awesome. I'm so please I can't say enough good about (the company). (They) also tore out an old slider door that leads to my three-season porch and replaced the slider with new French doors. What an improvement that is. Not just updating the look to the house but my utility cost has dropped.

Classic Remodeling & Construction was so respectful of my home and home furnishings during the entire two and one half months. They cleaned up debris, scraps, used materials, their tools and supplies at the end of every working day. They swept and always left my house in the best possible shape even though major construction was going on.

I can't say enough nice things about (them). They were always pleasant, considerate of both home and people, clean, well-mannered, efficient, diligent, neat, multi taskers, craftsmen in their job and scheduled all outside sources so job could come together in a timely and efficient fashion. (Ceramic tile folks, tub glazer company, carpet people, material delivery people).

I highly recommend (this company) of their qualifications, work ethics, attitude, efficiency, detail, honesty, respect of others' positions and fair market bidding practices.

June Simkins - client since June 2007

I would highly recommend (Michael Morales) from Classic Remodeling & Construction. I was very pleased with their workmanship. They have a wonderful attitude and were very cooperative. They cleaned up after...

their messes and left things in good repair. They even did little extra things for me like putting in a shop light.

At my home, they dry walled ceiling joints in the garage. They sanded the areas and repainted the garage. They installed and varnished trim in a bedroom and painted two bedrooms, hallway, stairway, and bathroom. They moved furniture for me and put it back in the right place. I was also pleased with their air duct cleaning of my house.

I would not hesitate to call Classic Remodeling & Construction in the future for any needed home repairs, dry walling, air duct cleaning, painting, etc.

Mike Morales completed a total attic renovation in our 90 year old home in March/April 2010. he installed insulation, built walls and cubbies, and bead-board paneled every square inch of the attic. This was no easy task...

as everything in this old house was crooked and off center! Somehow, it all came out looking straight. (A tribute to Mike's attention to detail). He also coordinated the lighting/electric work, heating, and carpet installation. Mike painted the entire space for us when it was complete.

I can't say enough about how fantastic Mike was to work with. Mike communicated with me constantly from day one of the project. He answered all my questions patiently, kept a great attitude even when things got tricky, and completed the project in a timely manner. In the end, our attic turned out better than I could have imagined. Mike and I also became friends throughout the process, as he is one of the most personable people I have ever met. He is generous, thoughtful, and completely trustworthy. And I would say the same thing about every person he brought in this house to help complete the project. This was our first major home renovation, and I had heard and witnessed so many horror stories. But Mike made it easy.

I would recommend Mike with confidence to anyone that is considering a home renovation project. He is very professional, knows what he's doing, does it for a fair price, and works very hard to make it right. We were actually sad when the project was complete, especially my 2 year old who still talks about Mike months after seeing him.

Mike managed to turn an old, drafty, dark attic into a bright, light space that has received so many compliments. Thanks to Mike for a job well done!

We regard Mike Morales an honest and capable contractor. I would highly recommend him for any future projects.

Etta Post - client since December 2006

We highly recommend Mike Morales of Classic Remodeling and Construction based on the work he did in our home in 2006. Michael constructed our home's addition which includes an entrance, office, half bath, ...

master bedroom suite with full bath and walk-in closet, a 3 stall attached garage and deck with white vinyl railings. Michael also remodeled our kitchen and family room at that same time. He did an excellent job on all aspects of the project, including installation of new cabinets, window replacement in the remodeled areas, and beautiful trim work throughout the addition and remodel. We are particularly please with our fireplace mantle which Michael worked to design and build.

Our large construction and remodel job was one of Michael's first projects as a new business owner. Our home's end result is a good indicator that Michael is an excellent craftsman! His talent, attention to detail, and desire for excellent workmanship was evident throughout the project.

We are extremely happy with our home's new look and receive frequent compliments. We highly recommend Michael who was easy to work with, had excellent ideas and acted respectfully and professionally throughout the process.
