Client Testimonial

"I bought a condo a few years ago and did an almost complete remodel.  Fresh Start built several custom bookshelves for me at the time, so when I decided to finish my remodel this year with a wall of built in cabinets and shelves, I contacted them.  Having worked with many contractors during my condo remodel I knew what to expect with this type of project, and Fresh Start exceeded all of my expectations. Everyone I worked with was a consummate professional, from the designer, to delivery people to the installers.  The quality was top-notch and the cost was competitive. I cannot say enough about Fresh Start.
