The Mendelson Family

Akitchen renovation, considered one of the toughest to live through, was remarkably easy for Jody and Shelly Mendelson when they contracted Gittleman Construction Company to redo the heart of their home.

“It really was no big deal,” said Shelly, “and I think that was because there wasn’t a time that I came into the kitchen that things weren’t moving along.” A neat work site, cleaned up daily, also eased the updating process.

The kitchen and accompanying powder room redo was the couple’s first major project in the four bedroom Colonial they moved into 12 years ago. Only two years old when they bought it, the house aged well but recently “we had to make a decision – move or redo.”

Happy with the neighborhood and their location, the couple decided — call Gittleman.

‘We had Scott come in and show us what we could do,” recalls Shelly. That included replacing dated laminate countertops and cabinetry with cherrywood and granite and putting color, granite and new cabinetry into the powder room.

“I loved working with their designer,“ said Shelley. “She really helped me a lot, but she let me make all my own decisions so I got what I really wanted.”

Now the Mendelson’s and their three daughters Mellissa, Arielle and Erica take a break from their busy schedules to share cooking duties in the state-of-the-art kitchen… and perhaps ponder future renovations.

“There’s more I would like to do,” said Shelly. When she’s ready, she’ll definitely call Gittleman.

So next time the prospect of an unsettling renovation puts a halt to your dream project, set your worries aside and rely on Gittleman to get you through.
