April and team were the utmost professionals. I appreciated the commitment to performing the highest quality work. NipTuck is also dedicated to transparency in the project plan and cost which takes a great deal of frustration out of the remodeling process. Bi highly recommend NipTuck
April and everyone at Nip Tuck Remodeling are simply fantastic! We have done several remodels both larger and small with several other general contractors and I can definitely say that working with April and Nip Tuck was head and shoulders above everyone else. The attention to detail, communication and quality are second to none.
With April and Steve our “super” supervisor, our very large and expensive (>500k) project came in on time and on budget as promised. There were very few hiccups along the way, but when they did come up April and Steve took care of things immediately always ensuring we were happy and felt good with the solutions. We will definitely work with Nip Tuck again and I recommend them without reservations.
April is very good at communicating with her customers, She provided us with a detailed outline at the outset of how the project would proceed. The Nip Tuck crew stayed on track with that schedule throughout the entire project, The individuals performing the actual work seemed quite experienced, knowledgeable, and professional.
Her mantra is “good enough is not good enough.” She wants her customers to be extremely happy with the end results and will do whatever she can do make this happen. For example, there had been a mistake with one of the cabinets. I was disappointed but thought I could live with it. April would not hear of it and said it needed it to be put right. I really appreciated that she wanted to make this remodel to as close to perfect as possible.
I have known April for years and always wanted to be able to work with her, but had to earn my way in. She takes a lot of pride in what she does and therefor will only work with suppliers and subcontractors that she can trust to perform to her expectations.
I have had the pleasure of being one of those suppliers for the past year and I’m thoroughly impressed at the level of detail and jobsite control that are followed. She is easy to work with, very knowledgeable, fun to be around and surrounds herself with great people. I wish more of my clients were like Nip Tuck Remodeling, and more specifically, like April, Patty and David. I hope to be able to work with them for years and years to come.
Let me just say Nip Tuck Remodeling understands the need for complete detail prior to starting a project. They understand that in order to have a successful project most (if not all) of the design and construction questions should not only be addressed but resolved. April and her staff are a pleasure to work with. I am a interior designer and have worked with many contractors.
I am quite fortunate to work alongside Nip Tuck Remodeling. I highly recommend them.
Nip Tuck Remodeling is fantastic! My two upstairs bathrooms are beautiful and we wished we had found NTR when we had done other work. Two bathrooms and a schedule that was followed to a T!
The quality of product and installation is first class. You will not be disappointed and April is very open to feedback. Thank you for doing such a wonderful job and Melinda Slater of Slater Interiors was a joy to work with.
In December of 2014 our house flooded, destroying almost half of our livable space, including the kitchen. We had long contemplated a remodel, but this event forced our hand. We scanned the market for contractors, narrowed the field to two and hired April/Nip Tuck. To be honest, we didn’t know what to expect and were a bit nervous.
The bottom line, though, is that April and her team and subcontractors did an exceptional job. They listened to us, kept us calm, and delivered our project in a professional, courteous and timely manner. Her slogan of “On time, on budget, on purpose” is more than just a platitude, it’s how she does business. The result is a spectacular kitchen which we love to cook in and just be in. It is contemporary and beautiful without being ostentatious. The balance of the work was creative and has made for a very livable house with efficient spaces, including the conversion of a sauna into a laundry nook with a sliding barn door on the upper level and a reconfigured and discrete powder room on the main floor. Finally, April was absolutely fantastic in dealing with our insurer. Calm, confident and persistent in pointing out the flaws and gaps in the adjuster’s process. We recovered more than three times the initial offer and April was instrumental in achieving that. We would HIGHLY recommend April and Nip Tuck to anyone considering a remodel.
We worked with April and her crew to do a major bathroom renovation on our 1961 home. The project involved turning a woefully outdated and undersized master bathroom into a much larger, modern and more functional bathroom with a walk-in closet by taking over the floor space from an adjacent hallway bathroom, and relocating the hallway bathroom. We also had some additional painting, mill work, and door replacement on the main floor. We spent about 5 months working w/ April to plan the complete project, and another 4 months for demo/construction.
We highly recommend Nip Tuck Remodeling. Very thorough, easy and pleasant to work with, and great work. No cost overruns, and the job was completed on schedule. We are very happy with the whole process and with the quality and appearance of the end result.
Here are some of the things that really stood out:
– Upfront planning and preparation was very detailed. April works on a fixed cost bid basis, not time and materials. This required a lot of upfront work and back and forth to get to a firm bid that was within our budget. This process was a bit tedious and time consuming, but well worth the effort, as we knew exactly what we were paying and what we were getting in return. We had a few areas in the budget where a firm cost couldn’t be provided until they started doing demo, but were given allowances in the budget for those items which turned out to be fairly close to the actual cost. Other than a few relatively minor change orders that we made during the construction, everything else occurred as planned w/ no surprises on cost.
– April was very flexible and accommodating w/ us and our budget. She had no issues w/ us sourcing the some of the materials (i.e. lighting fixtures, stock cabinets), which allowed us to save quite a bit of money. She also carved out a week in the construction schedule so that we could bring in our own hardwood floor refinisher that our friend had recommended.
– We had a few issues that came up during the remodel (which we expected with a job of this magnitude). Every issue was dealt with in a professional and courteous manner.
– Once the lighting had been put in the master bathroom, we noticed one area that was too dim. April agreed and felt that this was an oversight on the design. She had an additional recessed light installed at her expense.
We had a wonderful experience our master bath remodel went without a hitch and on budget as well, we would highly recommend Nip Tuck to anyone needing a remodeler
Nip Tuck helped us remodel our kitchen and we couldn’t be happier with the results. We have a child with special needs and had put off this needed project for many years, concerned about the disruption such a project would cause the household.
We felt April was very sensitive to our family’s situation from the first time we met.
She is very professional and detail oriented. She guided us through every step of the process. During the planning stages, she helped us modify the plans until it looked “just right” and fit into our budget. As we were about to begin, we were given a schedule for the project with information about what was to be done each day. The project stayed on schedule! All the contractors who came to our house arrived when they said they would (or we were informed about delays) and were very respectful. The job site was left clean and tidy each day. April and Kari (our project manager) were always available to answer questions or concerns. With any large project, there are bound to be little glitches here and there. April and Kari (our project manager) addressed them all, often going “above and beyond.” The end result is a beautiful new kitchen. We highly recommend Nip Tuck and will use them again for future projects.
April, the owner of Nip Tuck, is one of the most thorough and detail oriented contractors in her field. All of her jobsites are operated in a timely fashion and communication is always on point.
As a subcontractor being up to date with timelines, expectations and advance notice are paramount to working successfully in our line of work. Kari, the project manager, does an incredible job ensuring that this success if always achieved. Thanks again Nip Tuck for working with us and making your projects so enjoyable to work on!!
We live in a small 1950s bungalow in West Seattle (900 sq. ft.) and when we bought our home, remodeling the kitchen was the first thing on our to-do list. The kitchen was in it’s original state which meant a tiny cramped space, old cabinetry, no dishwasher or disposal and an extremely minimal amount of countertop.
After working with April and Joy (from Abodian Cabinets), we came up with a design that completely opened up our space to the rest of the house and created a lot more functional space. We took the kitchen down to the studs and removed a few walls and a supporting post along the way, getting a completely brand-new kitchen in the process.
My husband and I continued to live in our small home throughout construction and while it was invasive (as it undoubtedly would need to be) April’s team took great care in ensuring everything was protected and that dust in our living area would be as minimal as possible.
It was very helpful to have the calendar April provided of the expected work to be done each day and week. The team was always available for a quick call to answer any questions we might have. We had a couple unexpected bumps along the way, but April and our project manager Kari (who was constantly going above and beyond) helped correct them as quickly as possible with minimal addition to our project timeline.
We now have a kitchen that we adore and is so functional. 6 months later everything is still working well and we know that should anything arise, April and her team will be there to help. What a great experience!
