We are new to the area and lacked the local connections. While researching tile for a family bathroom renovation, the local tile and carpet store recommended ESHI. That’s a good sign when a vendor suggests a contractor. ESHI was very responsive and prompt. We picked the worst time to buy then renovate a house in Newport: the summer. It is the busiest time for contractors. Thanks to experience and solid relationships with tradesmen, ESHI was able to take us on as a client. Dawyne, the owner, really listened to us and understood are challenges. The family bathroom on the second floor was very small and dark. It was a disgusting space. We were able to work together to create a functional luxurious space. Throughout the process Dawyne kept us informed of any changes to schedules. The tradesmen who work with Dawyne were professional and personable making a tough job – we were living in the house during the renovation – a lot more palatable. While ESHI will not be the cheapest bid, the end result shows in the craftsmanship of the work. Invest in the quality now and not pay later in fixes. We plan on using ESHI again for other projects.
