Mark Van KooyMark Van Kooy ★★★★★ We needed our kitchen and most of our first floor completely gutted and remodeled and our basement finished. Mike Klotz and the team from Ideal exceeded our expectations in terms of quality of their work, collaboration, and timeliness.All of their work was first rate, they provided terrific advice and recommendations and acted as true partners through this major effort. I would highly recommend them to anybody who is considering significant remodeling work on their home, and would absolutely work with them again in any future projects we have.Karen ReitanoKaren Reitano ★★★★★ Ideal Remodeling renovated our kitchen and all three of the bathrooms in our house. They went above and beyond to make sure that we were happy with every single detail. They use quality materials, and all of their subcontractors (plumbing, tile, electricity, painters, etc.) do excellent work. Their pricing is very reasonable, and they provide you with estimates quickly. We have had the new kitchen for over a year, and we love everything about it. The owner, Mike, is always available for questions or concerns, and is very involved in every step of the project. Our bathroom project required a new siding on our 24 year old house, and Mike went all over the tri-state area until he found an exact match to our existing siding. Ideal Remodeling has visionary ideas for how to best improve your home space and utilize every square inch to give you the best results. We highly recommend them for any renovation you may need.Abigail SchwartzAbigail Schwartz ★★★★★ Ideal Remodeling came in clutch when a contractor - we thought we could trust - renovated our shower and ended up totally destroying it. I called around to several contractors in the area. Mike was quick to respond and give an estimate, and work on the shower commenced almost immediately. Everyone was detailed and thoughtful when communicating. It was the easiest renovation we’d ever done! For any future projects, we know who to call!Donna M QualkDonna M Qualk ★★★★★ If you think you did your homework and didn’t select these guys I wish you luck. At the finish of everyday for 2 months these guys cleaned up,Thank you for our dream homeSusan SwaseySusan Swasey ★★★★★ I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Mike and Rose at Ideal Remodeling, LLC for over15yrs. The quality of work is exceptional! The “crew” worked well together and were very respectful. I highly recommend giving them a call. You won’t be disappointed!Ronald SmithRonald Smith ★★★★★ Great team to work with! They started with our vision and desires, worked and communicated with us throughout the project, and turned them into a high-quality, beautifully functional reality! Very happy and pleased!Tom MTom M ★★★★★ Ideal Remodeling recently renovated our kitchen, and we couldn’t be happier with the finished product which far exceeded our expectations.Mike K carefully walked us through the concept phase, and he accurately translated our thoughts and ideas into a design that was right on the mark.Rodney, Mike and Zach brought the design to life with their experience, skill and attention to detail. The team took great pride in their work and went far beyond what we previously experienced with other contractors. They checked in with us often to ensure they were meeting expectations, and patiently listened to our questions and suggestions. And when warranted, they seamlessly incorporated those questions and suggestions into the project. They cleaned the work area and adjacent rooms at the end of each day, which was an unexpected and pleasant surprise. They also completed work not specifically included in the project, just because it needed to be done.If you are planning for a project anywhere in your home, you can’t go wrong with Ideal.Tom and CathyLori Ann PalmaLori Ann Palma ★★★★★ My husband and I have used Ideal for both our master bathroom and kitchen renovations, and we couldn't be happier with the outcome for both rooms. Throughout the process, we always felt informed on what was happening and when, and any natural reno problems that came up were handled. For example, we needed to match our discontinued hard wood floor in the kitchen, which turned into a difficult process, but Rodney was fantastic at hunting down a match that is so close, you can't even tell that our old floor and new floor are patched together, which is also a testament to Mike's craftsmanship since it was NOT an easy task to complete. Rodney and Mike are always focused on quality while providing guidance on what they think will work and what won't, which is invaluable for a homeowner with no reno experience. I never felt uncomfortable asking "dumb" questions or sharing my ideas. Highly recommended!Jennifer BuckJennifer Buck ★★★★★ Best experience from estimate until job completion. Rodney always kept me in the know of progress. Mike and Zack’s carpentry skills are A++!! Extremely CLEAN!! Not only the work was flawless, they went over and above by cleaning gutters, mopped floors and cleaned sidewalk & street at the end of work day! I am beyond satisfied with my addition!Allen ChaiAllen Chai ★★★★★ Ideal Remodeling framed out an entire bedroom and closet for me at my house. They also sheet rocked, trimmed it out, and installed all of the doors and they did an AMAZING job.Mike, Rodney, and the team were all super helpful and very responsive throughout the entire process. They started the job exactly when they said they would, showed up everyday exactly when they said they would, and finished the job exactly when they said they would.They even went the extra mile to lay down plastic in the areas where they walked and also covered items in plastic to protect from dust. At the end of every single day, they disposed of the plastic, cleaned up the work area, and swiffered the floors. Their Quality workmanship, attention to detail, reasonable prices, and customer service are absolutely top notch. They definitely exceeded my expectations. If you’re looking for a reliable Contractor you can be rest assured that you’re in very good hands with Ideal Remodeling.Bill ChesterBill Chester ★★★★★ Basement Remodel - Mike K's team (Rodney, Mike, and Justin) did an absolute amazing job with our basement. How they handle every detail is greatly appreciated. Experience couldn't of been better, will be using them again for sure.Marina DunnMarina Dunn ★★★★★ We highly recommend Ideal Remodeling as a contractor. Mike was great to deal with during the estimate process and during our project as things came up that none of us anticipated. He worked with us and was fair with pricing. He provided us with great value and good suggestions along the way. Rodney, the foreman, is a true professional. He communicated the entire time with us. He left no detail unnoticed. He is considerate, meticulous, polite and conscientious. His crew, Justin and the other Mike, were the same way. They cleaned up every single day before they left our house. We genuinely didn’t mind having them in our home. In fact, when the project was done we were kind of a little sad the guys were gone! They were just so helpful and ready to guide us not just with our original renovation, but with other things we needed addressed throughout our home. They were very helpful and we are extremely happy with how our basement turned out. We received high quality workmanship. They brought us ideas and suggestions that kept us on track but made a beautiful impact. You won’t regret hiring them!!Lawrence R.Lawrence R. ★★★★★ Besides being very meticulous with their work, they are always a pleasure to deal with and very responsive, getting right back whenever we had a question or wanted to make any changes.Josephine LJosephine L ★★★★★ April 30, 2019 I wish there was enough time tonight to give a detailed description of how very superior "Ideal Remodeling" is when compared to their competition. In essence:I researched for so long to find just the right people to completely remodel two full bathrooms, and once I experienced owner Mike's thorough and tailored-to-the client's-needs presentation, I was sold.The members of the remodeling team became like family during the almost 2 month process and they made the demolition and construction of two new bathrooms at opposite ends of the house a relatively seamless process.Project Manager Rodney is the very soul of the team. He is a consummate professional who somehow manages several projects at a time with his creative intelligence and ability to make things happen almost as soon as you ask him if it is possible to ....(.fill in the blank here.) He is hands on as much as possible. He truly IS the glue which holds it all together. Whatever he is getting paid, he deserves double.Re-modeler Justin is the heart of the team and he does whatever needs doing. My 2 grandchildren were enthralled by him and the way he loved his work. It showed. I'll never forget how Rodney and Justin let the two small boys help them put the finishing touches on my new shower bench.Master craftsman Yuri was so good at the lost art of tiling, that I wanted to watch him work as much as possible. He is awesome in placing individual tiles and he does it very carefully. It's all in the detail, and he has it down pat. Take a look at the "Mantua Project" video and you will see what I mean. Assistant Ilya was in the same realm. He also paid such attention to detail.Both Rodney and Yuri told me at different times how much they saw MY house as THEIR house each and every day, and therefore everything had to be perfect.Eugene the painter and Darryl the electrician both took such pride in their work, and it was evident by how much they wanted everything to be just right.Dan & Gavin from "Just Glass and Mirror" of Williamstown measured, installed, and created additional perfection when customizing the glass enclosure portion of my new shower. Gavin taught me about the advantage of having Diamon-Fusion built into the glass as the glass was being made. The thought of almost never having to clean the shower enclosure again was such a wonderful feature. And the glass looks SO GOOD after a shower...It's like magic!Kevin of Avalon Tile & Flooring Deptford was by far one of the most helpful people of all. He assisted me in selecting the best possible tile combinations for my shower, walls and flooring. I cannot say enough about himI used a plumbing supply company for vanity furniture and a few other things, but I ended up researching and then designing my own faucet & shower head look. The Moen technicians were fabulous in the support they provided.Now that this particular project has come to an end, I do not miss the noise, but I do miss the ones who made it all happen.Project Manager Rodney is the absolute BEST in the business, and his team is second to none. I highly recommend them for all your remodeling needs.Trevor RTrevor R ★★★★★ Thank you Mike and his crew for fixing our badly damaged drywall in basement along with painting it.. They did a phenomenal job. Very impressed with how clean, punctual and detail oriented these guys are. Will definately be using them for future projects.. Steve from TurnersvilleSusan DrogalisSusan Drogalis ★★★★★ Ideal Remodeling just completed a bathroom renovation for us and we could not be happier with the finished project. The high quality of work, attention to detail, patience, care of our house, and professionalism were second to none. They got here when they said they would, explained every part of the process, cleaned up at the end of every day’s work and were friendly to have around. The subcontractors they brought in for plumbing and tile and an electrical problem were just as professional. The price was right and we have several more Ideal projects lined up. I highly recommend Ideal Remodeling to anyone looking to have any kind of work, big or small, done on their home. A big thanks to Rodney, Mike, Jason and Justin and also Miguel the tiler.Janice ReadJanice Read ★★★★★ Hi, for anyone considering a contractor, I'd strongly recommend Ideal Remodeling for their attention to detail, excellent quality of work, patience, promptness, value (staying on budget) & everything else! Ideal just completed a kitchen and bathroom renovation for us and we love it! We interviewed a series of contractors -Ideal was recommended by a neighbor and is the only contractor we found that kept their appointments / overall timing of project, found creative solutions and was truly a pleasure to deal with. We wholeheartedly thank the entire Ideal team including Rodney, Mike, Jason & Justin for working with us, it's very much appreciated. We are looking forward to the next project!! 🙂Donna BracagliaDonna Bracaglia ★★★★★ I wish I had known about Ideal six years ago when I had an addition built. I just used Ideal to do some bathroom repairs. I would recommend them anytime. All the workers are professional. The work I had done was priced very reasonably. I will be using them again.Kirsten MessinaKirsten Messina ★★★★★ I wish I had found Ideal Remodeling earlier! They redid our master bathroom and did a beautiful job. Rodney and his team were such a pleasure to work with-they were timely, professional, considerate of my time, and left our house cleaner than when they found it each day they worked. I give Ideal Remodeling my highest recommendation and will be using them for future projects.Robin DebreceniRobin Debreceni ★★★★★ Ideal Remodeling just finished the renovation of my studio space. They exceeded my expectations! The team was very clean and paid attention to every little detail. I couldn't be happier with their work! Rodney was great to work with. He kept me posted each day as to what to expect. The team was very polite and professional. Any questions or concerns I had were addressed promptly and to my satisfaction. I love that they cleaned up so well at the end of each day! I highly recommend this company!scott sharkeyscott sharkey ★★★★★ You hope you hire the right company to do the job but you never know until it’s all done. This was the right company for us. Michael came out the very next day for the consult to finish our basement. We came up with a plan and they executed it with great Craftsmanship, efficiency, and cleanliness. They were always respectful of our home,our family, and our time. I was anticipating some trouble as common with most projects,but this was went smoothly from start to finish. It was largely because of their trade skills, but ultimately secondary to their communication skills. We are thankful we found the right company for the job and look forward to future projects.Jessica Salvati CrespoJessica Salvati Crespo ★★★★★ I had a great experience with Ideal Remodeling. They said that they’d be at my house at 8am, and they were never late. They did amazing work and the floors look beautiful. Professional, polite, timely, and hard working. I’d recommend them and I’ll be using them for future work that I’d like to have done to my house!Edward Farace IIEdward Farace II ★★★★★ We have been in the market for quite some time trying to find a general contractor that we could trust. Ideal Remodeling stepped up to the plate and blew us away with their craftsmanship, integrity, customer service, and just the overall sense of pride infused into our needed projects. We highly recommend them and look forward to more upcoming projects.Michele BaccareMichele Baccare ★★★★★ Ideal has done several remodeling jobs at our homes in Haddonfield and Ventnor. Mike and Rodney are top notch professionals who leave nothing unfinished. They remodeled our bathroom and our kitchen, as well as installing new wood flooring throughout our lower level, new doors, lighting and wiring. They communicate with us extremely well, and schedule and finish their jobs on time and on budget. We are so happy to have a reliable, respectful, neat and high quality contractors to call when we need work on our two older homes. Highly recommend!Melissa UvaMelissa Uva ★★★★★ After looking at several contractors for our first floor remodel, we chose ideal remodeling based on Mike's professionalism and ideas during our consultation. He was the only contractor we interviewed that pointed out up front in the consultation that we'd need a new electrical panel (extra cost). I appreciated his up front honesty about the project and what our expectations were vs reality and that ultimately swayed our decision to choosing Ideal. I'm SO GLAD we did!! Rodney was a dream to work with, he kept me in the loop on how everything was going pretty much every day (we weren't living at the house at the time) and always made sure I understood what was happening. He also gave me a lot of recommendations for projects around the house that we were doing ourselves that, for two new home renovation DIYers, was super helpful. He made sure he did everything he could to get these two salvage lights we bought work in our dining room, and figured out a workaround for our TV cables so I could hang our TV on the wall with no cables showing. The showstopper was the kitchen. They did a complete remodel, and everything went so smooth they even finished before the estimated completion date. The kitchen is so beautiful I ALMOST don't even want to use it. I would 1000% recommend them for any project and I'd give them 10 stars if I could. Usually you hear horror stories about contractors but Ideal made it so easy I'd do another project in a heartbeat. I can't recommend them enough!PJ43PJ43 ★★★★★ Mike has done a few smaller renovation projects for us. He is always honest & extremely helpful with recommendations that provide good value for the money. Rodney & his crew just completed another job for us & we are completely satisfied with the care they took as well as the professional work. When it's time for the next project, we'll rely on Mike for his recommendations knowing that the job will be done correctly at a fair price. My wife & I highly recommend Ideal Remodeling.Diana HooseinDiana Hoosein ★★★★★ After a bad experience with a previous contractor, I was hestiant in hiring another contractor but as soon as I met Mike those fears went away. I knew he was just the right guy to get the job done and I was right!! They came in like a well oiled machine and fixed all the problems we were having from the previous bad job that was done. They respected our home and cleaned up every day. I wouldn’t trust my home with anyone else but the guys at Ideal Remodeling.Brian WestfieldBrian Westfield ★★★★★ Mike, Rodney and the rest of the Ideal Remodeling crew did an AMAZING job on our kitchen remodel in Haddonfield, NJ. I've never had an experience with any contractor that came close to this. Their attention to detail, thoughtfulness and pride in their work product was incredible. The project came in on time and on budget due to their hard work. When small challenges popped up along the way, they came up with a solution and communicated everything to me in detail. I was never in the dark and always knew exactly where the project stood as it progressed. I strongly suggest that you contact Ideal Remodeling about any project you are considering. I will not use anyone else going forward. As others have commented, I would give more than 5 stars if that was an option.Susan GriffithSusan Griffith ★★★★★ I would give Ideal Remodeling 10 stars if I could !!! They just completely remodeled my entire kitchen and it is gorgeous. Mike, Rodney and crew are absolute true professionals. Mike and Rodney went above and beyond!!!!! They do amazing work, are meticulous with details and clean up after themselves every day . I know when I do my next home-improvement I’m calling Ideal. Thank you Mike, Rodney and crew for giving me a kitchen that is beyond my dreams!!!!!!Dan pfafmanDan pfafman ★★★★★ I have worked along side many contractors and remodelers in the South Jersey area, But each time I walk into an Ideal Remodel Jobsite I am always impressed by there attention to small details and fine craftsmanship no matter what they may be working on that day. It’s clear that they take great pride in their work and don’t cut any corners, which for most contractors, tends to be a huge issue these days... The boss Mike is a great guy and super knowledgable in regards to the industry, and the rest of the team always seem to have everything under control and working efficiently. It’s a pleasure to work with these guys and would recommend them to anyone looking to get work done in their home!Keep up the great work fellas!-Dan Pfafman(Just Glass And Mirror)Ed FennEd Fenn ★★★★★ I used Ideal Remodeling for a ceiling repair after it was damaged by water. I appreciate them taking on a small job. Rodney did an excellent job fixing the ceiling! He spent a lot of time making sure that everything was covered prior to starting the job and cleaned up after. He is very personable and answered all of my questions. Mike (owner) was very responsive and easy to get a hold of throughout the entire process. I plan on having them install under cabinet lighting. I highly recommend Ideal Remodeing!!Bill BorghardBill Borghard ★★★★★ These guys are great! They have done 3 projects for us, another one next week, and two more in the queue. They are friendly, skilled, and professional. If the job is not done to your liking, they come back and make it right.
