”Working with Scott Hall Remodeling has been wonderful. It’s easy to underestimate the amount of choices that need to be made in a bathroom (or kitchen) remodeling project: Granite, Tile, Cabinets, fixtures, colors, finishes, textures, etc. I really enjoy helping people sift through all of these variables to really help make the project their own, a space they will find joy in for years to come.”

In a field that is so “bottom line” driven, where people are encouraged to take shortcuts or skip steps if it saves a dollar or two. It is so refreshing to work with someone who is truly driven by customers service. His organization and creativity are a rare combination to find in a single person. His willingness to use new media and innovation to improve his business is very impressive.
