Basement Finish

Chris and I wanted to again thank you for the great work done on our basement in Johnston. We recently put our home up for sale as we are building a new one here in Johnston. It was on the market for 17 days, had 15 walk-throughs, and 2 offers. The consistent feedback that we received from anyone who walked through was how much they loved the basement. They loved the craftsmanship and details of the work done in the basement. Our great basement was a HUGE asset in selling our home!

Thanks again!!  Amy & Chris - Johnston

Mudroom / Laundry Addition

When I wanted to put an addition on my house, there was only one person for the job, Tim. I've worked with Tim on past projects (deck, window and door installation) and was very pleased with the results. Tim and his crew were professional, timely, neat and paid attention to details. Tim was involved in every step of the project. He takes pride in his craft and it shows. Thanks to Tim, my new addition is my favorite room in my home. I highly recommend Tim. I look forward to working with Finishing Touches, LLC in the future.

Tim's standard of excellence is obvious in every project he has completed for me. Tim is conscientious, personable, and extremely capable and skilled at his craft.

Kitchen Remodel

We have had Finishing Touches do several projects at our home. The quality of their work and attention to detail is outstanding! We felt very comfortable having them and their sub-contractors, in our house working when we were not there. When we have home remodeling projects in the future, we will not be using anyone else!

Basement/Family Room/Bathroom/Wet Bar

When we decided to look for a contractor to finish our basement we were looking for someone with a reputation of integrity and quality work. Tim came highly recommended and we were not disappointed. Tim and his crew take great pride in what they do. Their high standards and professionalism are evident in every aspect of their work. The attention they pay to details, neatness, and timeliness is unbelievable. Most importantly, Tim was in constant communication with us every step of the way, so there were no surprises. We are so pleased with the work of the Finishing Touches crew and really appreciate how they respected our home and daily life while completing such a major project. We highly recommend Tim and look forward to working with Finishing Touches, LLC in the future.

Bathroom Remodel

Finishing Touches transformed a 1970’s-era bathroom in our 1917 home into one that is historically sensitive. From the built-in storage cabinets to the intricate tile work and the nickel plumbing fixtures, care was taken to get the details right.

Tim Hulick is easy to work with, communicates well, and is knowledgeable about historical styles. We appreciated his professional judgment on the practicality and aesthetic appeal of our choices. He uses excellent subcontractors, several of whom we have subsequently hired for miscellaneous projects in our home. We can attest to the fact that he and his workers maintain a clean job site so that there is minimal interruption to the rest of the living space.

We intend to call Finishing Touches again for future projects. In fact, Tim will be building a buffet in our dining room in the near future!

Kitchen & Family Room

I strongly recommend Tim Hulick and Finishing Touches, LLC with confidence to anyone looking for a meticulous and competent contractor. We recently used Tim and his crew to remodel our kitchen and family room. They removed all our old cabinetry, installed the new cabinet package efficiently and with great attention to detail. Tim informed us every step of the way...asking for input and offering suggestions when “surprises” occurred. They cleaned and organized the site at the end of each workday! Tim went above and beyond to locate "that right piece of wood" for our fireplace mantel - driving to another community on a Saturday to examine and purchase the product. Tim, Carlos and Dick were a great team!!! I will be referring Finishing Touches to our friends and family looking for assistance with home improvement and renovations.

Multiple Projects

We have an older home that was built about 1913 and have lived here 45 years. Our last three projects have been with Tim Hulick of Finishing Touches and we would like to tell you about them.

The first project was to replace three short windows in our dining room with a bay window and a window seat. The eight foot width remained the same but the height was made exactly like another window in the room that was nearly seven foot high.

The second project before our retirement was the last major thing on our “to-do” list and that was a new garage with a paved driveway and PVC fencing. Since our home has two porches and a deck we needed a garage with a loft so that we could have a place to store all our outdoor furniture. We wanted the garage to have the same pitch roof as our house with windows in the loft to match our attic windows on the house. I also wanted a cupola with a weather vane. My husband said the only way he’d agree to this project was if Tim Hulick would build it for us and “WOW” what a job he built! People were driving by constantly to see it.

The third project was a small job but we wanted a roof over our basement door. We wanted it the same style as the front porch with the brackets that matched. This year we are going to try out some of the new composite decking material on our front porch floor.

We cannot say enough good things about Tim and Finishing Touches. At our age I don’t think we’d even consider any other projects without him doing the work for us. We love it when Tim’s around because it is such a pleasure to work with him. He is very dependable, comes when he says he will, gets in and out on a timely basis, cleans-up and has a great “finishing touch” in matching windows, trim work and style.

Our bay window, garage and side porch is everything we wanted them to be. We’ve had so many compliments on how nice they look with our house. We have recommended Tim to everyone we know because we think he is the best person for any contracting job.

Kitchen Renovation

We first heard about Tim through a reference from a co-worker. At the time, we were considering a kitchen renovation. We had some ideas about some features that we wanted, but we needed help bringing it all together into a single design. After meeting with him a few times, we had a plan in place for a major kitchen renovation, including new cabinets, countertops, backsplash, floor, and lighting. Shortly after construction was underway, we knew we had made the right choice. Tim’s quality throughout the project was outstanding. After a few weeks, our new kitchen was finished, and we could not be happier with the final result.

We were so pleased with the kitchen, that a few months later, we decided to have Tim work on a laundry room renovation as well. That project included cabinets, a sink installation, and electrical work. Just like with the kitchen project, Tim did an amazing job with our laundry room and once again exceeded our expectations. We will definitely consider working with Tim on future projects, and we would recommend him to our colleagues and friends as well.

We have had Tim (Finishing Touches) do multiple projects for us. He came highly recommended by some friends of ours. After working with him, we would also highly recommend him. Tim’s attention to detail is impressive. He is a perfectionist and treats your project like it was his own. Remodels can be difficult and challenging for the homeowner. Tim makes the remodel process as painless as possible for the homeowner. Tim is realistic in his estimates. He anticipates the unexpected and because of that, you don’t get nickeled and dimed to death. When there is a legitimate change order, he prices it fair. He communicates throughout the project so you understand what’s going on. Tim treats your home project like it was his own.
