When Manny and his wife Courtney started CMK Construction, it was with a commitment to quality products and outstanding customer service. Even though, according to their website, www.cmkconstruction.com, CMK Construction has been serving the Tampa area as the Kitchen and Bath Experts since 2004 and has over 17 years’ experience in kitchen and bath renovations, let’s find out what some of their friends and neighbors, their former customers, think of their own individual experiences with them from their testimonials on the CMK website:
Master Bath Remodel
Carol S. 3 months ago:
“Thank you, CMK, for the great teamwork from start to finish. Salesman Jordan explained what needed to be done, Natassa was great in helping with design. A special thank you to Eric and Jeff, who used their expertise and professional skills to create a beautiful Master Bath. They are the best of the best. The bathroom looks great and I couldn’t be happier.”
John C. 2 months ago:
“Folks, I’m not sure why you would call any other company in the Greater Tamps Bay area. CMK is the best. From Jessica, who came out and did the design. To working with Natassa in the showroom to pick out tile, grout etc.. Then Dylan working with us as the project manager. Man, I cannot say anymore about how they handled everything. Oh wait, how about Scott and Joe working on the project directly. You cannot and will not do any better. The professionalism, customer service, follow up as well as helpfulness on the entire process was awesome. If you choose a different team, I feel sorry for you… Ownership should be truly proud of these team members!!”
Galley Kitchen update
Colleen M. 3 months ago:
“From beginning to completion of my galley kitchen, my experience with CMK has been phenomenal!!! Derrick the designer, Michael the project manager and Joe and Romy the contractors have conducted themselves in a courteous, professional manner and made me feel like my project was foremost. I couldn’t be happier with the personal attention I have received from Michael and Joe. I highly recommend CMK and will be using them on my future projects.”
Bernardo C. 3 months ago:
“Our experience was excellent. This was directly due to the Project Manager Dillon and the incredible crew of Scotty and Joe that did the work from demo to finish. Very meticulous workers and Dillon was very hands on in supporting his crew.”
These are not only ringing endorsements for the quality of work performed by CMK Construction, but proof of the professionalism of its in-house staff, from the sales agent to the designer of your project to the project manager and installation workers. Separating themselves from the competition, CMK maintains two accredited designer professionals whose services they provide without charge to their customers. It is just one more way, CMK goes the extra mile for you!
With a 5 out 5 ratings based on 59 reviews, their customers have given CMK Construction their unqualified approval, which explains their BBB accredited business rating of A+, 2020 People’s Choice Best of the Best Bathroom and Kitchen (Tampa Bay Times) and 2019 Angie’s List 2019 Super Service Award. Additional awards and accreditations have come from Home Advisor and Thumbtack. Manny explained CMK is under consideration for additional awards this year.
Known for their quality and committed to providing exceptional customer service, CMK offers you, their customers, a range of outstanding products for all your remodeling needs. They are especially proud of their Schluter certification. Schluter is a German company that has developed a waterproofing system that, when installed as part of your bathroom remodel, carries a lifetime guarantee. CMK continuously trains all its installation employees yearly on Schluter’s latest techniques.
Manufacturers like Elysium, Delta, and Moen provide state-of-the-art faucets and hardware while industry leaders like Brizo, MSI, Cambria, Radianz beautify their kitchen counters. Matched with beautiful cabinets from Fabuwood, Wellborn, and R. D. Henry, an ordinary kitchen becomes extraordinary, your dream one.
As the CMK website notes, “CMK Construction also sets itself apart as a kitchen remodeling company with multiple certifications. As a stated-certified general contractor that is Lead Safe Certified with the EPA, you can trust that your project is in the hands of a highly knowledgeable group.”
Offering a full range of quality products for all your remodeling needs including kitchen and bath fixtures, countertops and kitchen cabinets, backsplashes, flooring and even under and over counter accent lighting incorporated into your design, your choices are many.
It is obvious from my interview with co-owner Manny that he came by his love of remodeling and working with his hands naturally. When his father came to this country from Greece, he began a painting business. Manny said that for him remodeling was a three-step process: consult, design, and build, with each an integral part of the finished product.
During the consultation phase, customers meet with the team’s designers to decide what elements should be part of their design. They can choose to work with their designer’s suggestions or provide their own blueprint designs. CMK is perfectly willing to work with either.
During the pre-construction meeting, they complete all plans, order materials that may not be in stock, and schedule the remodel for construction when they receive the material. To aid in the open communications process between their client and CMK Construction, they go one step further and assign an experienced individual Project Manager to each remodel.
He is the contact person for each customer and is available to answer questions throughout the course of the project. This and a one-year workmanship warranty, besides individual manufacturer’s hardware ones, make up what Manny called CMK’s unique “peace of mind warranty.”
The CMK Construction website explains why Tampa Bay consistently picks CMK Constructions for their remodeling needs: “That’s not the only reason that customers continue to hire our kitchen and bathroom remodeling company. We are a consistently top pick among Tampa homeowners because we offer a wide range of products and services. Whether you want a complete bathroom makeover or just a standalone service, you can expect beautiful and long-lasting results. We have all the knowledge, skills, and resources that we need to complete any of your renovation goals.”
With so many competitors out there, it is sometimes difficult to know who to choose. Anyone can place an ad saying they are a bath and kitchen remodeling contractor but ask yourself if they have 17 years of proven satisfied customer experience, at workforce of at least 70 skilled employees, have won multiple customer service awards, earned several certifications, and offer the Shluter’s lifetime leakproof guarantee, to name just a few of the many advantages of working with the CMK Construction professionals.
If you can’t say yes to each of those questions, you need to call CMK Construction today, your state certified general contractor, and enjoy your professionally installed remodel tomorrow.
As Manny notes in the introduction to his website: “Your Tampa home is more than your refuge from the world-it is also one of your most important investments. That is why, when you are ready to invest in a bathroom remodel or a kitchen remodel, you need a remodeling contractor with a proven reputation for exceptional results.” Think CMK Construction.
