My wife, Mary, and I have known Tom Pellegrin for approximately eight years. In 2004 and 2005, he and his able crew undertook a significant renovation of our home in Afton Oaks, and then again in 2010 and 2011, we called upon Tom’s help with additional updates to our home. Thus we have ample basis to comment on why Tom would be an excellent choice for your “Remodeler of the Year” award.
Working with Tom has always been a happy experience for Mary and me. Throughout our dealings, Tom has remained consistently cordial and fair-minded. Among other things, he is a superlative cabinetmaker, and I am not an easy man to satisfy on that front. Perhaps because of his skills in that area, Tom also exhibits a keen eye for detail in all aspects of his work. He is, in the best sense of the terms, a craftsman. Adding value to Tom’s work, his friendly and trustworthy crew has been with him for many years. They are always welcome in our home and go out of their way to minimize the impact of construction on our daily lives. We have also had uniformly positive experiences with Tom’s sub-contractors, and it is obvious that he both encourages and expects the best from his subs.
Perhaps the defining characteristic of our dealings with Tom has been his professionalism and his consistent application of the Golden Rule to his dealings with Mary and me. On all of our projects beyond simply making our projects happen – he has also volunteered cost-effective ways to economize where it would not compromise the quality of the results. I therefore value his advice and his honesty as much as I do his artistry.
The bottom line is that I can recommend Tom without any reservation for any substantial home renovation project, and in fact, I have recommended him to numerous of my friends since 2004. All who have used Tom’s services report that they were very happy with the experience.
