Dear Jim:


As the summer winds down, we are finishing the first full season in our Edgewater condo after the remodeling was completed last year.  The season was thoroughly enjoyable, and was made all the more so by living in a condo that was completely redone to meet our unique requirements.  We also came to appreciate even more the quality work and personal care you provided as our general contractor.  It is one thing to design a remodeling to fit our needs; it is another to implement the design in a professional and highly skilled manner.  This you certainly did.


We thus wanted to send you a letter of appreciation for all of your fine work.  We appreciated you patience and thoughtful suggestions as we first conceptualized what we would like to have done and how best to do it.  Your intimate knowledge of how our unit was constructed enabled the most efficient use of space.  This was particularly apparent when you told us you could expand the useable space in the master bathroom by utilizing the dead space behind the side wall.  We also appreciated your flexibility after the basic design was finalized.  Just one example was your suggestion to add crown modeling.  This added a very nice finishing touch, and we certainly liked the very reasonable added cost for this last minute change order.


Having just completed a new house in Florida, we were well aware of potential problems in getting the builder to address the post-construction punch list.  This certainly was not an issue with Sunrise.  There were very few things that needed work.  And just as important was your responsiveness in taking care of the minor repairs.  You said when we met that you stand by your work, and this you certainly did.


We have had the opportunity over the summer to “show off” our unit to house guests and other owners who are considering remodeling.  This has never been an inconvenience.  To the contrary, we are happy with the new unit and enjoyed sharing remodeling ideas with others.  And we also always highly recommended using Sunrise.


We want to thank you again for all your work and help in making our summer so pleasurable.  Please to not hesitate to use us as a referral.  Your prospective new clients should feel free to contact us if they have any questions regarding our positive experience with Sunrise.

Dear Jimmy:

We want to thank you for your professional work during the past 2 ½  years. You have completely renovated out place throughout, including air conditioning, plumbing, bathrooms and kitchen. We liked your creative ideas as to recessed lighting, wall replacement, use of tile, and the Leviton automation system with computer, cable, telephone outlets in every room. Your workmanship was superior, timely, reasonable and within budget.

Getting us back in our condominium within 2 ½ months after April 1, 2008 flood in the Annapolis House building really saved the summer for us.

If potential clients want to see the quality of your work, please feel free to show them our unit.

Thanks again for all that you did.
