CLIENT COMMENTS: "We wanted an experienced contractor that had the rare
combination of good sense and good taste, and with Sylvain we got both. Our home was
built in 1922, so I wanted to achieve a certain look with a clawed foot tub, tumbled
marble floor tile, . . . the list goes on. (I can be pretty particular
-- just ask my husband.) The workmanship throughout was excellent.
As with any major remodeling job in an older home, there were unforeseen
circumstances, but Sylvain help us navigate them effectively. As the jobs
progressed, we could see the level of extra effort that the Absolute Remodeling
team put in. From beginning to end, I constantly asked Sylvain for his input,
and he always offered helpful suggestions. He even referred me to certain
mail-order catalogs that carry accessories that are ideal for our new bathrooms.
Sylvain, Tisa, and the whole Absolute Remodeling crew, were a pleasure to deal with."
