I am semi satisfied. The end product looks good and I was happy with the subcontractors. The New Design office is a different story. It took many calls by me to the office to get action, every time that I called it was very difficult to talk to the person that I called for. My job was supposed to be a 1 day demo and install, in reality it took 4 days. They did not adhere to schedules, I the end I acted as my own general contractor working with the subcontractors and had to do the cleanup myself. There are companies that can provide better service.

I am very particular about who does work on my home, but I made the right choice with New Design. They are craftsmen not contractors. My kitchen is now the focal point of the the home. On time, within the quoted budget and friendly workers. If you want a quality call New Design.

Our kitchen and bathroom remodel was recently completed by New Design and we couldn't be happier. Every employee we dealt from start to finish were very professional and any issue we had was quickly resolved. Highly recommended!

Tips & Advices
If there is ever a dispute regarding payment over the course of the project, a contractor or subcontractor could place a payment claim, or lien, on your property. To avoid this, ask the contractor to sign a lien release, which is a legal agreement that states that any payment accepted is final. This can come in handy if a contractor has his or her own payment issues with their subcontractors. Signing a lien release form certifies that any payment made by a client to the contractor is enough to pay for any goods or services rendered.
Absolutely ask. Paying too much up front offers the homeowner minimal leverage if the quality of work does not meet expectations or contractual specifications. Try to establish a reasonable pay schedule, such as paying 10 percent of the total cost for each 10 percent of the work that is completed. Include this payment plan in the contract, as well.
Before any money changes hands, there should be a contract to sign. Make sure the specifics of the work and all costs are listed in the contract, including details. If you forget to have something included in the contract after signing it, there's rarely a chance of recourse.
Ask the contractor for proof of their certification before signing anything, as well as their proof of insurance. You should also check your homeowners insurance policy to see if they offer coverage for contracted work. You may want to call your insurance provider and ask for more details on what your plan will and won't cover.
Yes. Plans for how the work site will be cleaned at the end of each day as well as at the conclusion of work need to be put in writing. An experienced general contractor should make every effort to keep the workspace clean and prevent dirtying or damaging any other area. Even so, talk with the contractor about the daily schedule, the logistics of transporting workers and equipment, and how cleanup will be handled.
