Positive: Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, Value
Where do I even start with Walt, this guy is the most thorough, detailed and punctual contractor I've ever met. We got estimates from 5 contractors and went with Walt based on a neighbor referral and he did not disappoint. We did a full kitchen renovation which included demo, knocking down a wall, new floors, cabinets, sink etc. From day one, Walt was very responsive and punctual. His attention to detail is second to none and we could not be any happier with the outcome of the project. His price is very competitive and fair and he's one of the nicest person you'll ever meet.

We are so happy with our beautiful new kitchen. Walt and his crew did a fantastic job and were a pleasure to work with. Walt is an amazing contractor, with years of experience and highly satisfied customers. Our project involved gutting the entire kitchen and removing the weight-bearing wall between the kitchen and living room. On his first consultation visit, delivery of the estimate, and throughout the entire process, it was obvious that Walt is dedicated to excellence. His quotation was thorough and easy to understand. He thinks of the big picture continuously, while paying attention to every small detail. He is a perfectionist. He delivered on each line item, on time. He was very patient and straight forward when answering my questions. When an unexpected issue popped up, as happens when a house is 65 years old and the kitchen has never been remodeled, Walt was a fast problem solver. He always outlined a few options and the pros and cons of each and explained his recommendations. His crew was also hardworking, polite, and professional. When not manually working on the job himself, Walt was here every day to supervise. There was substantial electrical and plumbing work needed to bring it up to code. He was meticulously clean and tidy, so the rest of the house was never dusty. Walt has lots of contacts with vendors, for flooring, backsplashes, and appliances, and he interacts well with all of them. Walt was respectful of my budget, and since he had scoped the project so well, there were no extra labor charges - a gem!
Now, each time we enter our small house, front or back door, we are treated to a masterpiece. Highly recommend.

Working with Walt Kaufmann on kitchen and projects for the past 20 plus years has been a sheer pleasure. Our company Mainline Kitchen Design we have a contractor list of about 20 and I rarely use anyone else if Walt is free to take the job it is his. What can I say Walt runs his company meticulously. From scheduling to completion he has never missed a deadline nor did I ever get a complaint. We look forward to many many more years of working with Walt Kaufmann and his crew. Thanks Walt for all you've done for us I really mean every word you are excellent contractor and friend

We got our entire kitchen gutted and remodeled last year, including getting a new powder room installed on the main level.
Kaufmann remodeling was recommended to us by MainLine Kitchen Designs and Walt and his team exceeded all our expectations.
Walt is very meticulous, punctual and responsive and it was very evident from day one that he is the sort of professional who loves what he does.
His attention to detail and workmanship ensured that the project schedule was adhered to and that we got a beautiful kitchen as planned.
While working on the project, Walt generously offered to pick up our stuff from home center and saved us some shipping cost and time. This did not fall under his purview but he was there to help regardless.

 


He continues to be reachable on phone for advice even after the project is complete and remains a good friend, to date. Thank you, Walt!
We would definitely recommend him to our friends and consider him for any future projects that we might undertake

Mr. Kaufmann remodeled our bathroom in an old house with lots of quirks and challenges. It involved enlarging the space and completely reconfiguring the design of the room. His ideas on how to most effectively work with a small, difficult space were excellent and the results were terrific! He also reworked a small laundry/powder room for us, with similarly good results. He is always available to talk, very communicative with details on work in progress. Very fair prices, great work and done quickly and thoroughly. Highly recommend.

Walt does an amazing job. We recommend him to our customers and they are always happy, not only with the work his company does, but in how easy and agreeable he and his guys are. Just recently Walt completed a redesign of most of the first floor in a customers home for us. The job included removing and rearranging many walls, a completely new kitchen, full bath, and a laundry room. Best of all Walt's pricing is very competitive! He's a pleasure to partner with.

Walt was very professional through out the entire process. This was my first home remodel project of any true size and Walt was able to help me with all the aspects of the project that I had not though of. Whether it be design details or just simply recommending a place to pick out tile Walt was always spot on. He was always on time and cleanly with his work. He communicated clearly with me though out the project. You could easily tell Walt is a man who takes time in his work and will never cut corners on his craftsmanship. I would recommend Walt to anyone interested in an Honest, hardworking highly experienced builder. I am having him come back in several more the for a few Kitchen projects.

Walt was the second contractor we used while doing major remodeling of our house, a 150+ year-old rowhouse. He gut-renovated our master bedroom and bathroom, kitchen, powder room, and den. What a difference from our first experience with a contractor (which wasn't terrible - just not stellar). Walt is detail-oriented, trustworthy, fair, hardworking, and really just a pleasure to work with. He was on the job himself every day, supervising all the work being done and often doing the most detail-oriented work himself. Whenever we discovered something unexpected during the job -- a virtual certainty in an old house -- he was a good problem-solver and fair about setting a price for any significant additional work. The guys who work with him are really a cut above other workers we've encountered - polite and hardworking. We really trusted all of them and liked them. Walt is the best communicator of any contractor, worker, or specialist we've hired for the house. He is always accessible by email, cell phone, or text, and always makes time to talk. The cons? The project took much longer than Walt's original estimate - but since that seems to be par for the course, I was at least glad to have a contractor who was such a pleasure to have around for that time.

Our beautiful kitchen installation has significantly increased the value of our home. Our cabinetry is fine furniture quality. It feels like we live in a new home and we could not be happier with the end result. Five stars!

Project: Remodel a Bathroom

Comments: Walt converted our 4th bedroom into a master bath and walk-in closet. His work was meticulous and he is very trustworthy. Any time there was a decision to be made, he consulted us. His pricing was extremely competitive. I would recommend him to anyone looking to renovate a bathroom or kitchen.

Dave N. in Philadelphia, PA

Project: Install Cabinets

Comments: Walt is a wonderful craftsman. He came and looked at the project gave initial thoughts and then improved the design. It is better than I thought it would be. I was comfortable with him from the start. I had had 5 others look at the project. Two never even gave an estimate. one was 1700 more than what Walt quoted and the last was 600 more. He came in and did it in a day. I can't wait to call him again.

Rhonda B. in Philadelphia, PA

Project: Remodel a Kitchen

Comments: Walt was the contractor from heaven rather than the usual contractor from Hades. His estimate was true. His pricing was realistic and fair. He did not try to gauge us out of money with sudden cost changes for crazy reasons. He was on time, gracious, knowledgeable, cleaned up each day, and gave us a full days worth of work every day of the project. He's a real craftsman and a gentleman. He turned our horrific 100+ year old kitchen into a gourmet dream kitchen that is astounding to look at and work in! He's the BEST!!!

Nolan J. in Lafayette Hill, PA

Project: Install Cabinets

Comments: Mr. Kaufmann was knowledgeable and straight forward when he came over to discuss our needs. He didn't try to sell my husband and me and he didn't have to. He worked with our schedule and our needs and got our kitchen cabinets in and even worked late to get it done for us faster. I would give him another star if it were an option, it was such a pleasure to do business with him. My husband and I are planning future work with Mr. Kaufmann and so are my parents!
