Specktacular client experiences.

Very seldom does anything turn out the way you planned. Juanita and I are very pleased to say our kitchen couldn't have turned out any better. Specktacular Home Remodeling met and exceeded our expectations during the construction as well as the finished product.

Mr. Speck was very receptive to our ideas as well as to our questions. Mitch took notes about our ideas concerning the layout, manufacture, and material as well as the color palate. He returned one week later with the layout, samples of material and colors; he also brought a schedule of construction. It's my understanding his daughter had a great deal of input concerning how the color and texture of the materials would tie together (she must be very talented!).

Mr. Speck was receptive to ideas and changes during construction. He explained the cost of the changes versus the original plan. On one occasion he brought to our attention a potential plumbing problem. He clearly indicated what the cost for repair would be now as opposed to the cost of repairing this plumbing issue later. We gave him permission to replace some in-wall plumbing based on his input. After it was done, Mitch showed us what had been replaced in addition to the insulation he added. He also took a screwdriver and pushed through the pipe he had removed! That pipe would have failed within the year, so we looked on the change not so much as an added cost of $350, but as a savings of $1000 later. This is just one example of how comprehensive Mitch and his associate Bill were through the remodeling process.

Seldom do I see my daughters agree on anything, however these ladies both agree the kitchen exceeded their expectations. My older daughter even insisted on cooking my birthday meal in our new kitchen.

Specktacular Home Remodeling wasn't the cheapest bid received, but I felt comfortable with their step by step explanations of schedule and materials to be used. After all, a major shouldn't be taken lightly. It's an investment.

Juanita and I hope we have explained why we highly recommend SHR for your next home remodeling project. The craftsmanship, understanding, quality of materials, and methodical schedule of SHR was a wonderful experience. We have received effusive compliments from all who have seen our new kitchen! We are thrilled.

Specktacular Remodeling was, in a word, spectacular! Efficient, professional and punctual staff.  The Specktacular crew were sensitive to my needs and preferences.  They arranged their work schedule based when I would like them to start each day and met that time. They seem to enjoy to what they do because they are always smiling.  They strived to cause as little disruption to my daily routine as possible; minimizing noise and mess. In fact, they cleaned my house, inside and out, to a respectable degree before they left each day.  They even asked if there was something I would like them to do.  The Specktacular crew asked for my preferences when necessary: positioning of the new light fixture, height of the lamps, color of stain, height of thermostats, blending of the tiles.  These people want their work to be perfect and there is seemingly nothing they won't do!  I cannot recommend Mitch Speck and his staff more highly.

We are writing to express our deepest appreciation for your excellent work and service in the remodel of our kitchen and the construction of our bathroom/closet/utility room/dog shower addition. The quality of your craftsmanship and attention to detail are truly impressive. I knew that when I saw even the screws holding the cabinet drawer knobs were uniformly aligned to the vertical position even though nobody would ever see them, that there would never be any issue with the quality of your work.

We would also like to thank you for your personal attention and thoughtful service. Your patience in working with us through the design process, bank financing hassles, and selection of options was particularly noteworthy. As you know, we had a hard time visualizing what we wanted and the finished result is a testament to your insightful facilitation. We have been getting jealous raves from everyone who visits. At every step of the way you took the time and effort needed to make sure that you were building the things we wanted. The final tribute to your people skills and service was the fact at no time during two major remodeling projects did we feel inconvenienced by your approach to this work.

Please don’t hesitate to use us as a reference where helpful. We are looking forward to the next opportunity to work with you.

We are so happy to have worked with Mitch Speck and Specktacular Home Remodeling to create an awesome retreat at our Mt. Hood cabin that we will enjoy for years to come. He understood exactly what we were hoping to achieve and made it happen with relative ease (at least for us ?). 

Mitch is very professional, patient, responsive, knowledgeable, and helpful--in short, everything you hope for in a contractor and rarely find. He communicates well, really listens to his customers and focuses on what is important to them, has great attention to detail, has a great sense of humor...and our dogs really liked him, too! 

It was a pleasure working with everyone at Specktacular Home Remodeling. We can't recommend this company highly enough, and look forward to working with them again in the future.

Mitch and Debbie took our long list of wants and must haves then came up with an innovative floor plan that incorporated all our desires in a way that we would not have thought of on our own. This included designing our home for Aging in Place.

While firming up the design, they worked with us to make sure it was both what we wanted and what we could afford. In the end the project was right on time and on budget. We could not be happier with our project and have had Specktacular Home Remodeling back to remodel the hall bath. When we walk in the door, we still think ‘Wow, this is our beautiful home.’

Many thanks Debbie and Mitch. We love our new home!

- Charlie & Bonnie, Tigard

Working with Specktacular Home Remodeling was a wonderful experience. We had never undertaken a remodel and this was a large scale project, so we were initially nervous. Mitch and his team supported us through the whole process. They listened carefully, explained options thoroughly, made design changes when we asked and worked to meet our needs at every step of the way. I enjoyed the process of working with designers before the project began to decide on layout, materials and design elements. The design professionals were very helpful in providing me with choices that matched my vision for the design. They found materials and options that I didn't know existed and yet were just perfect for our needs. Mitch was an excellent contractor and an absolute pleasure to work with.

He was professional, knowledgeable, friendly, organized and communicative. I was impressed by how well he and his crew stayed on top of the project timeline. After hearing so many stories about remodels dragging on for months, I was impressed when Mitch finished the majority of the project ahead of schedule! Work was completed to very high standards of quality and perfection. Every detail was attended to with care.

Mitch and his crew were always friendly to work with, professional in their interactions and clearly experienced in their craft. Every night I would come home to a spotlessly clean work space, which is quite a feat when your kitchen has been gutted! I always trusted that our home was in good hands with Mitch and his crew. The finished remodel is just Specktacular and has made our home beautiful. I highly recommend Specktacular Home Remodeling to anyone undergoing a remodel.

I am honored to write this letter of recommendation for Specktacular Home Remodeling. We chose them to remodel our kitchen and both bathrooms in the summer of 2015. We wanted a total remodel, complete with walls being removed and entirely new surfaces, cabinetry and appliances. This was our first remodeling project, and a big one, so I wanted to understand the whole process. Working with Specktacular Home Remodeling was a wonderful experience. Mitch and his team supported us through the whole remodel.

Felicia and I just wanted to tell you again how much we appreciate the work you do for us.  We are incredibly thankful to have found a contractor who delivers outstanding results at a fair price. I remember when we were first beginning to work with you and were discussing the kitchen estimate you provided.  One thing you said stood out then and continues to stand out:  "I provide good value."  Felicia and I have reflected on that statement several times over the past few years and have come to really appreciate it and agree with it. We appreciate how much effort you put in to try to understand how we think and to tailor your work accordingly.  We also appreciate that you ask us questions that get beyond the "what" to the "why" so that you can brainstorm even better solutions than what we have in mind.  Frequently, we have brought a potential solution to you -- but, rather than just implementing it as is, you have asked questions to understand the fundamental problem we are trying to solve.  With that knowledge, you usually recommend superior solutions that exceed our expectations. Last but not least, we also appreciate your character and our friendship. Again, we love working with you and are looking forward to working with you in 2014 and beyond.

A number of years ago we "borrowed" Mitch Speck from our neighbor across the street for whom he had been working for quite some time. We figured he was either very good or very slow, but took a chance. Fortunately he was very good. He did several minor to major remodeling jobs for us and we were extremely satisfied with his work and his character. Later, in another house, we trusted Mitch and his crew to do the whole thing. They completely gutted, redesigned and rebuilt our current home. This fall we will be representing his work in the 2004 Remodelers Home Tour. Before that however, Mitch will be expanding the remodel of 2 years ago and building a new deck. We don't even call anyone else any more.

- Craig & Patricia, Portland OR

Mitch & Debbie:
You two are the perfect pair in business. You each have specialties and you are both so perfect--customer service and customer relations-wise with customers. Work is absolute perfection all the way. We have enjoyed our experience with you two and Jenna, Brett, Bill, Milt, etc.
Wow! Thank you!

I’m so pleased we hired Specktacular Home Remodeling for our bathroom reno! I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. All of the employees that were in my home were polite and respectful – and they do quality work! You can tell they love what they do. Mitch totally got my “vision” from our very first conversation – at no point in the process did I feel that we weren’t on the same page. I cant wait to use them for our next big project.. the kitchen ;)

- Michelle Bravo

To purchase a newer, two story home, on a smaller lot or stay in the 1960’s era single story house on a large lot in an older section of Tigard…that was the question. We decided to remodel our house involving approximately 75% of our house – living, laundry and dining rooms, kitchen, and extending the master bedroom and bath. For us, the remodel process began at the Home Remodelers Show in early 2008. We walked around the Expo Center and looked at flooring, windows, fixtures and spoke to several contractors; one of them was Mitchell Speck of Specktacular Home Remodeling.

Confusion and fear crept up on us. How do people go about remodeling their home? Where do you start? It was important to choose the right contractor, because, one: we had never experienced a remodel project, and two: we had heard many stories of remodel nightmares. But we jumped in with 4 feet (the two of us) anyway! We started with interviewing builders and architects which took several weeks. We remembered Mitchell Speck and how he showed interest in our project and told him that we didn’t know anything about starting a remodel or choosing a builder. Mitch said first of all to thoroughly check out any contractor we were thinking of hiring; talk to the homeowners of his current renovations; call his vendors, etc. So we included Specktacular Home Remodeling in our interviews. We chose Specktacular Home Remodeling for two reasons. First of all Mitch convinced us they could do the entire project, starting with his wife, Debbie, designing the home that we want, to getting the permits to the final work. Secondly, and most importantly, they convinced us they were the right people by being the kind of knowledgeable professionals that we could easily work with. And thirdly, the homeowners of Mitch’s current projects were all very happy with his work.

To keep costs lower, we agreed to participate in the demolition, painting the entire interior and the daily clean up of the work site. At the beginning of this renovation, Charlie, my husband became seriously ill. I was the one that worked closely with Mitch making the many onsite decisions to be made like where the light fixtures should be located, which way the door handles should go and so on. Mitch was great when it was make a decision time. He would tell me what needed to happen and why and offer his suggestion. He was always patient with my questions and accepted my decision even if it was different from how he thought it should look. But Mitch would never compromise on building code or what was the correct way to build. Mitch is excellent at listening and helpful in decision making.

Mitch and Debbie took our long list of wants and must haves then came up with an innovative floor plan that incorporated all our desires in a way that we would not have thought of on our own. This included designing our home for Aging in Place. This gave us wider door ways to accommodate wheelchairs and walkers if needed in the future. While firming up the design they worked with us to make sure it was both what we wanted and what we could afford. Debbie assisted me when it was time to choose the lighting and plumbing fixtures; carpets and floor covering; counter tops and tile and appliances. Shopping with Debbie took the guess work out of locating everything on the list. She has an excellent sense of design and proportion and we are thrilled with our new kitchen and new master bath. These two areas were in the greatest need of a makeover.

During construction, Mitch kept us up to speed in which areas would be deconstructed or reconstructed and as to when the subcontractors were coming in. The subcontractors that worked on our project were professional yet friendly and fun. I had the opportunity to work along side Mitch’s carpenter crew during the demolition stage and they were very patient in showing me how to correctly and safely pull down sheetrock. And I got to swing the sledge hammer to take down the old interior wall 2 by 4’s. I really enjoyed the demo process! And then I got to help build interior walls and work on the new addition’s joist plate and attach the deck for the subfloor. Oh, the joys of power tools!

This is a very important point: Mitch can be pickier than me! This is a very good thing. He was meticulous when installing the trim and moldings. Mitch wouldn’t hurry through this stage just to get the house done. He took the time and believe me—it all looks just beautiful. The white trim gives our home a fresh, bright look; and remember this house was built in the early 1960’s.

In the end the project was right on time and on budget. We could not be happier with our project and have had Specktacular Remodeling back to remodel the hall bath.

When we walk in the door, we still think “wow, this is our beautiful home.” Many thanks, Debbie and Mitch…we love our “new home”.
