Kitchen Remodeling is a Specialty
for James Allen Contracting in Virginia

Jim Allen has been remodeling kitchens for nearly 40 years. In a referral-driven business, his customers are his best salespeople, and he is dedicated to meeting and surpassing their high expectations.

"What really stands out is the quality of Jim's work, his attention to detail and his willingness to go above and beyond. He clearly takes pride in his work and nothing is complete until the customer is satisfied," says Nancy (Reston, Virginia).

Kitchen remodeling is an excellent investment when done well, as it offers a high percentage of return when compared to other home renovations. A kitchen remodeling project should often offer a two-fold purpose; your personal enjoyment for as long as you reside in your home, and the benefit of better resale value.

Kitchens are prime gathering spots. The high traffic means the kitchen's proposed new design must be in keeping with your family's routine. This is Jim's specialty! Jim listens to your vision, then uses his years of experience to contribute ideas for exceptional kitchen designs that blend your personal style and quality expectations with excellent utility. The resulting kitchen is one that is full of personal touches but ultimately maximizes your space for utmost efficiency. A kitchen for entertaining with optimized seating, smart reconfigurations, more space for cooking, an orderly pantry and chaos-free storage solutions.

"Jim's advice was superb on wonderful touches that I had not thought of," says Jackie (Springfield, Virginia).

Kitchen remodeling means an endless and sometimes overwhelming amount of choices for appliances, materials and accessories. Jim will guide you through the decision-making process and then take it from there, personally handling much of the legwork so that the remodel does not completely dominate your busy schedule.

"He knows where to get specialty items," says Gloria (Reston, Virginia).

 It is the accumulation of small details that make all the difference in a renovation, and whether it's delivering countertop samples to your home or taking you out to visit cabinet showrooms, James Allen Contracting is dedicated to ensuring that your remodeling experience is a positive one.

"Jim is very understanding of the homeowner experience and there was no 'hard sell'. Instead, he encouraged us to think about everything carefully and take our time. We liked that approach," say Cathy and Dave (Reston, Virginia).

Finally, it needs to be said that home renovations, especially a kitchen, can be disruptive to the daily routines of the homeowner. As past clients will confirm, Jim communicates frequently and consistently, addressing and adapting to your concerns while your home is under construction. Regardless of how big or small the project, Jim will treat your home renovation just as he would his own.

"My home was still treated like a home, not a work zone. They cleaned up daily. I had no anxiety at all leaving the house because Jim uses excellent people. I loved them all, the electrician, plumber, painter without exception," says Barbara (Sterling, Virginia).

Your proposal will include a complete schedule detailing the phases of the project, materials to be used, and corresponding installation dates. Communication throughout your kitchen remodeling project insures a quality installation without the anxiety associated with a major home renovation. Once he gets started, your kitchen remodel will be completed on a firm schedule. And Jim puts together a team of only the most professional craftsman for your kitchen remodel. His team is skilled, licensed, and dependable, which helps to avoid delays/issues common amongst other contractors.

"His outstanding organizational skills coupled with quality workmanship provided superb results. He completed the project on schedule and at the agreed cost with no hidden surprises," say Tina and Rusty (Lowe's Island, Virginia).

Jim is not simply looking to win a bid. He will never just casually manage the parade of subcontractors coming in and out of your home. Without exception, Jim takes ownership of the projects he commits to, completing your renovation with the craftsmanship and professionalism of an unrelenting perfectionist.
