“I had a full remodel done of my main (full) bathroom. They installed a tub, fixed the plumbing for the shower (the tub faucet was originally set way too high), installed a vanity cabinet and top, laid and finished tile over the entire bathroom floor, tiled the walls of my shower and added an inset (tiled) shelf in the shower wall and a mosaic tile accent stripe. They also reseated the toilet and installed all of the plumbing fixtures (shower and vanity faucets and drains).
I have one full bathroom in my house, so there is only one tub/shower. They worked fast for a job like this, which meant that I had little disruption in my schedule. They were efficient, prompt, and cleaned up each day. I can’t say enough good things about them! In fact, they quickly stepped in to clean up the mess left by another contractor who had abandoned the job.
Jonathan was great to work with when getting things scheduled and putting together an estimate, which came back at a more than fair price. I supplied a lot of the materials and did a lot of the demolition myself, and they stepped right in and took it from there. The tile job is fantastic, a truly professional job. I love it! Everything was done right the first time, and I couldn’t be more pleased. I’ll be calling them again when I’m ready to tackle my kitchen!”

“Jonathan and [his] team are ROCK STARS. We would hire him again to do any remodel job we have. Things started off really well with him… The thing that stuck out to me at the first was the amount of time he stayed at my house looking through things before providing the estimate. He spent over an hour at our house looking at every single detail (he went in the basement… went in the [attic], etc…). Within a few days of the visit, he provided a very detailed estimate. We were very comfortable with selecting his company for the job.
We live in a house built in the 1950s, so there were many surprises along the way, and every time we had one, Jonathan was there with a solution. Since we were living in the house during the remodel, Jonathan and his assistant did a really good job cleaning up their mess of the day. The house was livable because these guys took the time to clean up…. Also through the entire project, Jonathan did a great job communicating with the status with us.
The result of the renovation is remarkable. We went with a kitchen that was outdated and had horrible flow to a modern kitchen. The project has been complete for 6 months now, and the level of quality in the work provided is top of the class.”

“Jonathan with Affordable remodeling is an awesome contractor. He is a type of guy who you would call, email, or text and boy you get a response fairly quickly. He is a great communicator in every aspect of this business. …After all the quotes that my husband and I got, they had the best quote and provided top notch service. Jonathan definitely has connections and knows where to get the best deal for granite, tiles, and faucets. We gave Jonathan a tight deadline, he literally had a month to do the job before we moved. Initially, he did say there is no way he can get it done in a month since he had other projects that he was currently on but after a few more discussions – he did it! He and his team helped remodeled our kitchen on time and we love it. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Thanks Jonathan!!!!”

“Contractor put new screening on large porch, hung two new screen doors. Looks great, very happy with the result.The job was essentially completed in 4 days.”
~ E.S. – Raleigh, NC
“Jonathan was prompt, responsive and provided a detailed estimate of the work. He was agreeable to let me do those things I was comfortable with (to save a little money). The project started and finished on time. What I especially appreciated was he communicated well, even sending pictures via email as the work was being done. Since I was in the house frequently I could see that he was careful and covered all furniture, etc. as he was working. We had cabinets removed, drywall installed, cabinets cleaned, repainted and reinstalled and finally new countertops and sink. He also installed a dishwasher and over the stove microwave. All and all a very good experience.”

“We had used Affordable Remodeling previously for some work in a small bathroom and were pleased with the work on the project. So we called him for a quote on the kitchen-den remodeling project. He came out in October or early November, we talked about the work we wanted and he made some suggestions for getting it done. He provided us with a quote a few days later and we agreed that we wanted to proceed but wanted to wait until after the holidays. The project started about Jan 8th and finished on January 31.
Jonathan (the owner) had two subcontractors who worked with him – one who made and installed the 9 roll out shelves, made some decorative shelves that were added near the window, and repaired a kickplate area under the sink – and an electrician who did the electrical work mentioned above – both of whom proved to be great to work with and very good at what they did.
Jonathan did all the prep, priming and painting of the walls, paneling and cabinets – and his biggest challenge was us, as we could not settle on the right color for the paneling. Jonathan was very patient and spent a lot of time going back and forth to the paint store trying to come up with a color we could accept. But the results are so worth it – we are extremely happy with what was a dark kitchen and den that now is light and bright. We changed the cabinets from being brown to white – and changed the walls to a pale pale green.The roll out shelves are wonderful – everyone should have them – and they make all the wasted space useable. Although we “lost” half of a double cabinet on the top, because I gained so much space with the rollout shelves, I don’t seem to be missing any space.
The den had been dark because of the paneling and grasscloth (probably 30 years old – from the original owner) – we had the bottom half (which was paneling) painted green and from the white chair rail up we removed the grasscloth and Jonathan painted the walls the pale pale green – as the kitchen and den walls meet at one point. Everyone who sees it comments on how much bigger the den seems now. We are getting lots of compliments on the remodel.”

“[About] a month before our family was coming for a [visit], the floor in our original-to-the-house shower surround broke through due to a leak that had rotted the shower floor. We were pretty sure we needed a new shower, so we sent out “emergency” requests for contractors specifying that our time was very short. Jonathan, the principal at Affordable Remodeling, contacted us right away indicating he thought he could do it in time. He came out the next day and gave us a provisional estimate. He was very organized. He gave us a list of things we needed to get done immediately (pick out tile & fixtures, etc.) so he could start as soon as possible. He told us up front that we might not be able to get the glass doors installed in the new shower before our guests arrived, but, that was easy to work around with a temporary shower curtain.
He and his subcontractor Matt were meticulous. They kept a portable HEPA A/C unit running during demolition and each day before they left our house, they cleaned up all dust and debris. They were very quiet and neat even during demolition. The quality of their work was excellent. We asked them to put in two shower niches and to tile them in register with the shower tile and Matt did it beautifully.
Jonathan is a master at logistics, which in my opinion is an absolute must if you want to be a good contractor. He had everything where it needed to be when it needed to be there. One more thing we appreciated about Jonathan is that he was easy to get in touch with by email and phone. He orchestrated everything expertly and kept us informed, frequently seeking our feedback. He always had his smartphone in hand and used it to maintain access to whatever information he needed to keep the job moving along. When we asked a question, he answered it immediately.
It has been almost six months since the work was done and we are still very happy with our shower–it is beautiful. We highly recommend Affordable Remodeling.”

“Complete tear out of 1970′s gold tiled bathroom with tub. Installed new tile walk in shower and tile floor and baseboard. The contractor went to the extra effort to research three vendors who could supply the exact shower door I wanted, from which I made my choice. I was really impressed that he would go to this extent to provide exactly what I wanted. The contractor took a table I had purchased and converted it to a double sink vanity with a marble top. The contractor removed a linen closet that was in the bathroom with a custom built cabinet including shelves, drawer and cabinet with doors. The contractor was at all times very prompt, courteous and professional. The quality
of the workmanship was excellent. The end result is a really wonderful bathroom that I now enjoy using. I originally got three quotes for this remodel and am very pleased with the quality of workmanship. I have recommended Affordable Remodeling Solutions already to several friends and would not hesitate for a minute to have them do additional work on my home.”

“These guys did a great job. Very good communicators from estimate to completion. Tile work was flawless and Jonathan and Chris were professional and polite. Never felt upsold or pressured to do costly upgrades or work that wasn’t needed (have had that happen with past contractors). Site was left clean every night and Chris even did his best not to be too loud during our baby’s nap time every day. Would highly recommend.”

“I had two of the three bathrooms in my six year old home upgraded with ceramic tile insulation by Affordable Remodeling Solutions. The owner Jonathan, came by on a week end, took measurements, and give me a quote in writing within three days. Though the cost was a bit pricey, his professional demeanor and approach to tile installation, not to mention a strong endorsement by others on Angie’s List, prompted me to sign a contract for service, to on commence on Sept 17th. On that date Jonathan and his assistant Mike were on time and they promptly prepped the house for the job to be done. Mike actually preformed the work, and was completely courtesy
and professional while performing the install. He was very happy to accomodate my wife and I in all that we asked of him. The job took a week from start to finish. When he was finished, my wife and I were thrilled by his outstanding workmanship! He cleaned up the job site afterwards, which was a strong plus, and the finished product was done to our specs without waste of resources. The workmanship justified the cost and I plan to utilize this company again in the future. We would strongly recommend Affordable Remodeling Solutions for any of your ceramic installation needs. GOOD JOB and THANKS!!! Regards, DWG”

“After a pipe burst in my Master bath and destroyed both upstairs baths and my kitchen, Jonathan came in with the most comprehensive and reasonable quote. He was easy to work with, good about suggesting less costly products and methods, very responsive at all times during the project. Things were completed when he said they would be for the most part, and when they were going to take longer, he was good about communicating the reasons and new time frame. His crew is polite and professional and great to work with. I’m very pleased with how the remodel turned out!
All work was completed in a timely manner and within budget. Jonathan and his crew are amazing!”

“I hired Jonathan with Affordable Remodeling Solutions after a very bad experience. I had just paid someone else to remodel my entire master bath. The work was fraught with serious problems, and the whole bathroom was going to have to be gutted and re-built from the studs. After doing my due diligence, I saw the many positive reviews for ARS, and contacted Jonathan. I explained my situation and he came out and looked the bathroom over and gave me a quote, keeping in consideration what I had just gone
through and the money I had already paid for a faulty bathroom.
Jonathan is very approachable, friendly, fair, and professional. It was a very negative situation I was dealing with, and Jonathan made me feel at ease that he would make it right. The other thing that appealed to me is that he works with a tile guy who does all tile work; he doesn’t do it himself. Knowing a real tile expert would be re-doing the job made me feel confident it was going to be done correctly the second time around.
The project was completed yesterday, and what I have is the dream bathroom I should have gotten the first time. All of the tile work is meticulous, as is the wainscoting, chair rail, and moldings. The vanity, sink, toilet, and shower system are all installed properly. There is nothing left of the original bathroom, and it’s a real delight to walk into my new master bath. It is truly beautiful and Jonathan indeed “made it right”, and went beyond to give me exactly what I wanted.
If you are waffling on who to hire to remodel your master bath, I can tell you that Affordable Remodeling Solutions is the company to contract with. The quality of their work is unparalleled, and Jonathan makes the entire process painless. You will be very happy with the results you get.”

“Jonathan answered all of my questions and referred me to vendors for the tile and fixtures. Matt was GREAT! and was such a perfectionist! Matt was always on time and took time with me to discuss how I wanted the tile laid and bench built. Matt cleaned up every day and even kept a smile on his face after my cat walked through the wet cement on the shower floor! I will certainly call upon Jonathan and Matt again when I’m ready to remodel my second bathroom.”

“I used Affordable Remodeling Solutions to give me an estimate for a kitchen remodel, screen porch, exterior deck, and cabinets. They did an excellent job. They were professional and prompt.”

“Our experience with Jonathan from Affordable Remodeling Solutions was excellent. Before we even signed the contract with him, Jonathan was very accessible and helpful with my multiple questions. I really appreciated this a lot! His quote was also quite a bit less than other contractors we had bidding on the same job. The final cost of the remodel was very close to the original quote Jonathan gave us. Throughout the entire process, he was professional, responsive, communicative, very positive, and friendly. If any minor problems developed, he addressed it quickly. The “crew” of people he had working here were all very professional, did their jobs well, cleaned up at the end of each day, and were also very pleasant to deal with. All provided good quality work, especially the person who did the tile. We are thrilled with the result and I already have two other jobs in mind that when we are ready, we will most certainly be calling Jonathan and Affordable Remodeling Solutions!”

“Overall, I would highly recommend Affordable Remodeling. I was anxious about having so much done, however, Jonathan (owner) put me at ease from day 1. He and his team were very professional and the work was done in a very timely manner. If i ever had any questions or concerns, they were addressed immediately. I was never uncomfortable about leaving them here while I ran errands. We were very pleased with the end result! We are planning one more bathroom re-model in April and Jonathan and his team will be here once again. This time I’m not anxious, but excited!!”
~ T.L. – Raleigh, NC
“The job was very professionally done. Jonathan was very helpful with suggestions as to what to use and how to install ex. positioning of tiles, colors, best quality to use. He was very intuned to detail. While being professional, Jonathan was very personable also. Those that Jonathan contracted to do drywall and plumbing were very competent and reliable. We would definately call Jonathan again for any other home remodeling/repair we may have.”
~ H.M. – Garner, NC
“We contacted Affordable Remodeling Solutions after reviewing Angie’s List. Jonathan (the owner) got in touch with us right away and set a time to come by. He showed up promptly, looked over the project, made some suggestions and told us he would send us a quote, which he did. After we reviewed the quote, we requested a change to the work; and he immediately contacted us with an updated quote. We agreed on the work, and he sent us a contract, which we signed and returned. In addition to Jonathan, two workmen were involved, and Jonathan brought both of them to our home and introduced them before they began work. They did not rush and were very
thorough. The work took about 3 days.
My husband, was extremely pleased with the drywall work. Actually, we are VERY SATISFIED with all the work they did and with the people involved in the work — enough so that we have requested (and already received) another quote from them regarding our kitchen and other areas – which we hope to do soon.
Jonathan is pleasant to work with, listens to what you want, and does not try to get you to do more than you want or can do.”

“Jonathan was very professional in all aspects from the estimate and contract to the execution. The work was done exactly on time and the work area was kept meticulously neat and clean throughout the project. We have been very pleased with the result.”

“Johnathan had done a beautiful job, he is very professional and [extremely] neat. Since he finished the man bathroom, (it looks so great), I have already hired him to tile my master bath (which he is finishing up today). We have also been in need of replacing our porch stairs which have been a hazard for a long time. Affordable Remodeling Solutions (Johnathan), I am happy to say, will also be [replacing] the porch stairs and I can hardly wait. He has understood exactly what I wanted and I could not be happier. I have already recommended him to several people. GREAT WORK!!”
