BUILDING AND REMODELING SERVICES


DIY HOME RENOVATIONS ARE MESSY AND TIME CONSUMING.

Can you imagine the amount of time and anguish you could save if you just called Matt Normandin at K&M Building and Remodeling?

Wouldn’t you rather hire K&M to refinish your bathroom instead of spending hours researching the “how-tos” on YouTube, or pumping the store clerks at the home improvement store for information?

Your family wants to spend quality time with you, but not finishing the basement, or running to the landfill with the old materials.

Kitchen Remodel

The heart of the any home is the kitchen. It’s where you start and end your day, and the room where the party always ends up.  Doesn’t it make sense to make sure this multifunction room, where you spend so much time, is as efficient and attractive as it can be?

As a full-service contractor K&M Building and Remodeling can provide you with all of the contracting services that your new kitchen remodeling project would require:

  • Choosing and installing new kitchen cabinets
  • Designing and creating your new kitchen
  • Expanding the room to become an eat-in kitchen or just making it larger
  • Completely redesigning or remodeling your kitchen
  • We work with a local company that offers designing expertise

"Matt was outstanding. Exceptional work, excellent person. I would certainly recommend K&M building and remodeling to anyone."
- Paul C., Meriden, CT

Bathroom Remodel

BATHROOM REMODELING

You might spend an average of 40 minutes in the bathroom per day, but did you know that it adds up to more than ten whole days per year?

The bathroom is likely your personal rejuvenation space, your library, and your “Calgon take me away” retreat. If your current bathroom makes you sigh in frustration instead of relief, it’s time for an update.  And that’s why you’re here, right?

“WHAT’S A BATHROOM REMODELING GOING TO COST ME?”

You know the answer to this.  “It depends…” on size, materials and what’s underneath and behind your current bathroom floors, walls and ceiling.  It may be as little as $5000, or you can spend over $15,000 for a very tiny space.  It depends on what we find when the demo is done and what you want.

Bathroom remodeling can include:

  • Planning
  • Demolition and Removal
  • Tiling
  • Materials and Fixtures
  • Licensed Electrician and Plumber

"Matt is very reliable and easy to work with. He gave us some good ideas and advice for our bathroom remodeling. He followed up quickly on any issues we encountered. We love our new bathroom and have gotten many compliments!"
- Diane S.

"To put it simply-- excellent, five plus stars!"
- Lorraine O., Middletown, CT
"True professionals in every way. Completed a project at least 5 other contractors refused to do--and did it at an extremely reasonable price. Wouldn't hesitate to use them again in the future. Highly recommend them."
- Jesse D., Middletown, CT
"I was very pleased with their prompt service. Provided a written work estimate. Very accurate and performed the job as detailed. Their communication was excellent. I would use them again in the future if the need arose. They were very reasonably priced.”
- Laura M., Berlin, CT
"The project was to remove an old, falling-down bird feeder station (pole with three brackets) and replace it with another four-bracketed feeder, with a concrete base and squirrel baffle. The handyman was excellent -- he looked over the old, recommended the new construction method, built it, and installed it at the first opportunity that weather permitted. Excellent job! And the new feeder is much more attractive. I love it!"
- Margaret M., Southington, CT

Patios and Walkways

PATIOS AND WALKWAYS

Your front walkway is one of the first thing that visitors to your home will see. A beautiful walkway will give your home great curb appeal while giving you and your guests a comfortable way to get from the curb to your door and to other areas of your yard and garden. Walkways come in a variety of styles and materials, but no matter which you choose you can be sure that the investment you make will give you years of enjoyment and pay off when when it comes time to sell your home.

Choosing the Shape of a Walkway

The size of your house and yard and will largely determine what shape your walkway should be. Small yards will usually look the best with a straight walkway that is relatively simple. A larger home or expansive yard can usually benefit from a curved or more detailed walkway that will add visual interest and break up large spaces.

Choosing the Materials for Your Steps & Walkway

The materials you can use for your front steps and walkways are almost endless. Brick is a common choice for walkways because it is timeless and works with almost any home style. Bricks laid in a straight pattern can give a clean, sharp look while a herringbone pattern can create a traditional and stately look. Flagstone is a great way to add visual interest with varying colors and textures while maintaining a geometric shape for a tidy walkway. Handmade pavers lend a slightly imperfect look that can add an element of charm and friendliness to your yard.

Don’t Stop at the Front Door

These designs aren’t limited to your front walkway. Lead your guests to the back yard by continuing your walkway around to a beautiful brick or stone patio or a custom-built stone fire pit. Stone retaining walls and porches can complement any walkway perfectly and add a polished look to your home and garden while drawing attention to the best features of your home.

An Investment in Your Future

Stone walkways, patios, and steps are built to last. Once they are installed, you can enjoy them year after year with your family and guests with very little maintenance. Then, when it comes time to sell your home, you’ll enjoy a better resale value and buyers that are more enthusiastic.

Let K&M Building and Remodeling Help!

K&M Building and Remodeling has been providing high-quality craftsmanship to the Middletown and surrounding area for more than 20 years.

"The final result was awesome considering the age of the bathroom. Matt was the best professional I have dealt with through Home Advisor so far. He accommodated my schedule into the job, and was done in a short amount of time even with a few hiccups with weather during the job. He was very courteous and very generous with tips and advice as far as other projects around the house. Will hire again for upcoming projects in my home."

CUSTOM TRIM

Interior or exterior trim will only enhance your home’s beauty.  However, it’s exacting work, and typically a higher level of difficulty for most weekend home improvement warriors.  If you don’t get those joints just right, every time you walk into the living room and see that mistake you made, you’re not going to be able to fully enjoy relaxing on the couch.  Add to your anxiety about the project, the tremendous amount of styles and materials to choose from, and you’re paralyzed, unable to get the job done.

Deck

DECK

Decks can be a fun and cost effective way to expand the recreational space of your home and add value at the same time.

If you like an engineered wood, we recommend Azek decking. AZEK deck boards are designed to withstand the everyday things that happen on a deck: spills, the wear and tear of high traffic, and scratching.

If you prefer a hardwood option, we are fans of Tigerwood Decking and Ipe wood.  Ipe (pronounced “ee-pay”) is a large tropical hardwood tree that grows abundantly throughout Central and South America. Ipe wood is prized for its durability, strength, and its natural resistance to decay, wet conditions, and insect infestation.  It’s ten times harder than cedar! Ipe’s remarkable properties have already made it the top choice for commercial and residential decking.

Here are some benefits to using Azek or Ipe decking

  • Stain resistant
  • Scratch resistant
  • Split resistant
  • Mold and mildew resistant
  • Durable and long lasting
  • Impervious to moisture and insects
  • Extensive design choices
