In 2014 we bought our fixer upper home using a HUD 203K loan which is a tightly monitored construction loan that’s supervised by a 3rd party so much so, that when I mentioned it most contractors simply walked away not wanting anything to do with it! Mel (Cardinal Construction) on the other hand, was quite knowledgeable and helped us get every possible advantage from the 203K loan.
On the job, she was patient and understanding as we chose color schemes, materials and determined kitchen and bathroom layouts. She made sure that all the subcontractors performed their work to code and if not had them do it again. Her guys were neat, professional and generally great guys who did a fabulous job turning our fixer upper into a wonderful home.
I can’t say enough about Mel’s work ethic, patience, flexibility and knowledge, she made a daunting process bearable and we consistently receive compliments on the work she and her crew performed.
