Testimonials

My husband and I purchased our future retirement home in Erie while we lived in Raleigh. We met with several contractors, however, we felt very comfortable with Skip based on the reviews. We had to choose someone whom we trusted to complete the remodel while we were in North Carolina. We met several times with him and Christine to plan the job then we went back to Raleigh. While we were away, the job was completed. It was a huge leap of faith to give our trust to Skip and his team to create our dream home. After several months and Facetime calls, the remodel was completed on schedule for Christmas!! He even had a pizza and drinks waiting for us when we arrived and the bed was made for us!! We could not be more pleased! His experienced team solved many problems of an older home with exceptional craftsmanship. It was his idea to paint the kitchen cabinets since they were only a few years old which saved us several thousand dollars. He had many suggestions while they were working on the job that proves his attention to detail is impressive. We will use him for our future bathroom remodels. Skip and his team are exceptional.

We have experience in working with contractors - built two houses and did another renovation. I have to say that working with Skip Knoll and his staff was one of, if not the best experience. They are knowledgeable, detail oriented, focused on quality and you can trust their word. They will do the job right. As with all reno's they found things that needed to be repaired - not their fault before they could proceed. Their price for the work was worth every penny. We love the final product, they listened to our needs and preferences and gave good advice. Would highly recommend them. They will do it right the first time!

We hired Skip Knoll for a sun room / 4 seasons room project. Skip Knoll surpassed all expectations of the project. We are extremely happy and satisfied, and would not think twice about hiring him again. He and his people are easy to work with and very conscientious about their work and any concerns we had during the project. Additionally, he also built and installed a custom closet for us, prior to the room addition.

Skip Knoll Inc remodeled my bathroom. They converted an adjoining closet into a walk-in shower and replaced the vanity, counter and floor. This involved plumbing, electrical, tile, and plaster work. They also replaced the flooring in the entry and the kitchen, and expanded the entry from the dinning area to the kitchen. Several years ago, they converted a three season patio into a year round sun room integrating it into the house. This involved raising the floor 2 steps, installation of windows and doors, insulation, heating, electrical, exterior integration, downspouts,and minor landscaping. Skip supervised the work site often. The three workmen I was in contact with, and all the subcontractors were friendly, helpful, hard working, very competent, and efficient. I left them with the key to my house for the length of both projects and never hesitated to leave them alone in the house. The work site was cleared and cleaned as much as was possible each evening. I would hire this company and any associated with it again without hesitation and have recommended them to friends. You get what you pay for in contractors. I have learned this the hard way in the past.

We have worked with Skip on several projects in our home over the years. We had put in a new kitchen floor and it made the rest of the kitchen look bad. Skip redid our counter-tops, put in a new sink, removed a never used kitchen desk and replaced it with much need cabinets and finally added a small built in cabinet that matched the original cabinets. We next moved on to the basement where we added a bonus room. It was simple, yet efficient and it added much needed room for the kids. But our dream project was our master bedroom and bathroom. It was small and close. Skip came in and redesigned it into a beautiful, award winning en-suite. He took some of the wasted bedroom space and re-purposed it into an area with built in drawers with a clothes closet above. He opened the whole bathroom area, put in a beautiful tiled shower and double sink with loads of storage area. Skip worked with us on every step. We added grab bars, a bench in the shower and heated floors. We did run into one snafu. When they were putting in the built in closet, they found mold in the attic because the bathroom ventilation was vented into the attic. Skip arranged to have someone take care of the mold, redid the ventilation and then had the additional insulation sprayed in. This was supposed to be our forever home. Fast forward a few years and my husband got a great job in the Detroit area near my family. So now we are house hunting again. But it has it has been very frustrating because there has been no homes that compares to ours. We finally decided to build, incorporating all the little touches that Skip did. We highly recommend Skip Knoll.

I worked with Skip Knoll and his staff to totally re-do my kitchen. During our first meeting with Skip, it was clear that he was who I wanted to work with. His ideas have totally transformed my kitchen into a beautiful space that has a much larger work area as well as all of the storage I need. Skip's office staff became friends within the first few meetings and were always welcoming and helpful. Skip's work crew was wonderful. They were extremely considerate of the rest of the house and very comfortable to have in my home. They worked fast, and were very thorough and talented in their trade. Every detail that I had hoped for was addressed when working with Skip and his staff. I highly recommend Skip Knoll, Inc. for any job you are considering.

Skip and his crew installed a new Anderson sliding door in a room of our house, installed two windows in an existing wall after removing them from the space where the door was installed, and refinished a large main staircase in our home. I just wanted to say thank you for everything through the course of our project. The guys have been outstanding, and everything looks wonderful. My wife and I could not be happier with the courteous, clean, professional service provided in every phase of the project from the bid to the completion of the work!

Skip and crew have completed two projects for us. Bathroom and Kitchen remodel in 2010 and recently have added large french doors out to our patio. Everyone is easy to work with, Skip has a great sense of detail/color, and is able to match our desires with what is available in the marketplace. So pleased with the attention to detail!

Thank you so much for the beautiful kitchen remodel. My 100 year old house provided many challenges. You went to great lengths to correct issues that were left by previous remodeling attempts. Believe me, I know that my project presented some extraordinary issues. Your crew was very knowledgeable and professional and gave me great advice. When I was told by Tom one day, "Well, if it isn't perfect, it isn't good enough," I knew I had the best possible contractors on my job. I've waited a long time to get my new kitchen and I appreciated the fact that you came in and worked straight through with no delays or down time. Thank you so much for my beautifully finished room.

Dear Skip & Staff, Yes, we are enjoying our new kitchen. It is gorgeous and much admired. I must tell you that J.C. relented and my neighbor put up a lighthouse wallpaper border which really gives it the needed color punch, as you suggested. Stop by any time for coffee and a break when you’re en route to clients. All the best – enjoy the family during the holidays!

Dear Skip, We just had to write and let you know how pleased we are with our “NEW” house! We are enjoying it so much! The quality of the work is outstanding! We have had many compliments from friends, family and from people we don’t even know! We have to mention everyone who works for you – they are all such hard working, very polite people. You can tell, they take such pride in the work they do. Mike, Cindy, Mark, Ben, Joe, the electrician (We’re sorry we cant remember the names of everyone involved in making our house beautiful for us!). Skip and Mike – we had a dream, you both turned it into reality. Everything we envisioned, you did exactly like we wanted. It was well worth everything! We recommend “Professional Remodeling by Skip Knoll” to anyone wanting quality work done at a fair price! Sincerely, The Szymecki Family – John, Rita, Shawn, Sarah, and Libby PS – it’s nice to know that there are still good, honest contractors out there! You went “the extra mile” when you did our home for us!

To Whom It May Concern: In the 20 years that I have been in the building material supply business, I have worked with literally hundreds of contractors. With that background, when the time came to perform a major remodel of our home, I knew what I was looking for in a remodeling specialist. Beyond having a can-do attitude, these were the standards required: 1. Trustworthy 2. Experienced enough to take on a very challenging assignment 3. Ability to complete the project on budget 4. Ability to complete the project on schedule. While Skip Knoll is not the least expensive, in my mind, the value of the work performed exceeds the cost. He understood what our expectations were from the very beginning and never compromised the integrity of the project. If something was not to our satisfaction, he made it right. Due to the complexity involved, our remodel lasted over five months. In that time my wife and I came to know Skip’s crew very well. It is evident that he takes care when choosing his employees. Besides being outstanding craftsmen, they were also clean, conscientious and kind. They paid great attention to detail and were never an imposition. With confidence, I can strongly recommend that if you are considering Skip Knoll Professional Remodeling, you will be pleased with the results. Feel free to contact me should you care for additional information.

To: Skip Knoll and all the employees at Professional Remodeling We are very pleased with the addition on our house. From the time you took to give us ideas on the possibilities that were available to us, to when the final decisions were made…we feel that it was done very professionally and the final outcome…WOW…absolutely fabulous! My husband and I wanted a great room with a cathedral ceiling and oak trim. We have a room 20’ x 30’ with oak beams on the ceiling, and oak pocket door that goes into our family room from the great room. The amazing part is that you can't tell where the old part of the house ends and the new part begins, as they blend in so well. The oak beams on the ceiling in the great room make it look very spacious and the oak shelf on the one side of the room adds tremendously to the lodgey look that we wanted for my husband’s animal trophies. Also, the bay window and skylight are exactly the way we wanted them to be. The wood stove (which you suggested, Kip) to place in the one corner of the great room with red brick going all the way up the wall behind it, is just the best! The wood stove, not only makes the room cozy and comfortable, but has truly saved us money, as it heats our whole house and has saved us from using any other source of heat in our home. We would highly recommend “Professional Remodeling by Skip Knoll” to anyone who truly wants a professional job done for any remodeling needs they might have. All of your employees were excellent and helpful to answer any questions we had. Thank you very much for guiding and helping us to make our house become the home we always dreamed of owning.

Dear Skip & Crew, Thanks! Just a note to say that we are truly pleased with the work you folks have done. The work looks great! Your people are very courteous and pleasant to have around – and they really work hard (even if we didn’t stuff them full of sweets!)

To Whom It May Concern: This very “fussy” senior highly recommends Skip Knoll Professional Remodeling Company. They replaced all of my windows in my 60 year old house. The employees were very professional and the job was completed in a timely fashion. After each day’s work, the job site was cleaned and left intact. The product was excellent, and my additional requests were honored. I will not hesitate to contact this company for future renovations.
