o simply say working with Ace of Space Interiors deserves a 5/5 on our major renovation project would be an understatement to the depth and breadth of their commitment, knowledge, and experience to help you transform your old space into something that reflects your wants and needs. They will take care of you to make sure you will love your home as much as they do working on it. :-)
They helped us transform the whole inside of our old home into this amazing beautiful space (through the first year of the pandemic) that maximizes the existing space, minimizes any odd corners/walls/bulkheads, and help us build the foundational behind-the-walls elements of the house to be up-to-code and long-lasting.
1. Honesty and Integrity
Troy and Rotem will work with you to build that relationship of trust in their process. They will keep you updated with all the good, bad, and ugly that can happen during a home renovation. Renovating a home is never a perfectly smooth activity but to have someone work with you earnestly to solve problems as they arise makes you feel in good hands. They will work to solve the root of the problem rather then just superficially cover it up.
We asked them both a lot of questions pre, during, and post renovation about their process, insurance, contract agreement, budget, allowances, design layout, finishes, issues, etc. They were always willing to share with us what they know and find answers to what they were not familiar with.
2. Finances, Budgeting, Transparency
Troy and Rotem used their deep wealth of renovating financial experience to help us define a reasonable budget for the scope of work on the outset and identifying earlier potential areas of risk for our home renovation for defining our contingency fund. They were happy to share the details about the hardware and finishes allowances in the agreement upon request. This really helped us build an understanding of where the baseline for our home was and how to budget for those upgrades early so there wasn’t an extreme financial crunch during the renovation. They were also very clear on what was an upgrade and what was included
Ace of Space kept us on budget throughout the process and had some great ideas for upgrades that would add so much quality of life value to your home. We agreed with their suggestion of a skylight in our brand new principal bathroom and it has been an absolute joy to have sun streaming in during the day time. They also are happy to extend any of their discounts with suppliers to help make your dollar stretch just that much more or have ideas that give you what you want for a reasonable extra cost.
3. Communication and Hands-On Workmanship
Troy and Rotem were excellent at keeping us updated about the state of progress of our home renovation process. They were quick to response to questions through mobile text and calls. They were always ready with solutions when speaking to us about a problem. They would send progress photos when big milestones were reached to celebrate and kept us in the loop about the next steps. Another point I want to make is that Ace of Space are happy to share their knowledge with you about the renovation process so you can get to know your home more intimately to take care of maintenance or react to emergencies when needed.
What are these pipes for?
Where does this electrical line lead to?
Why do I need this?
How do I lay out my appliances?
How do I access this?
How do I turn off water/gas?
The list could go on and on!
This brings me to my second point about working with Ace of Space. They are on-site every day and dedicated to your home renovation project during the times when it requires the heaviest lifting. They are not juggling multiple projects at once; they are present and focused on yours. They are at the site working with their team and trades being part of that process which really showed us their dedication to own the process from start to finish and treat it like they were renovating their own home. The workmanship on the interior and exterior is high and they do not cut corners on even the smallest of tasks.
4. Holistic Renovation Experience
We loved that Ace of Space Interiors is a husband and wife team. Rotem is the project manager and design expert while Troy is the general contractor that leads the coordination, logistics, and work on site. We liked that there is near-instant feedback and discussion on whether design ideas would work or how layout might need to accommodate structural requirements of the renovation. It kept the idle time on the project at a minimum while waiting for answers from the design or construction aspect of the project.
They help you think about the big vision for your home from the guts of the home (electrical, plumbing, HVAC, etc) and the visual finishes around the home (flooring, tiles, lighting, countertops, etc).
We are extremely happy that we put our trust in Ace of Space Interiors to turn our house into a home. We have had friends who have seen the final results and have asked to make the introduction to them for their impending renovation projects as well.
Thank you Troy and Rotem for all your hard work to make this house a home for us!!! We love living in our new home and you helped us make our dreams come true!!
