I had a vision and the Good Neighbor made it a reality---I’M THRILLED!

I was tired of the tiled floors in my kitchen and family room and wanted to replace it with hardwood. I knew what hardwood I wanted, and I knew I wanted a random installation but the problem was that it did not come prepackaged as a random installation. It was, however, available in two different widths so I purchased some of both widths, explained to Mike my concept for a “random installation” and left it to him and his team to make my dream a reality.

Mike arrived with his team and got to work removing the old tile—no small feat—yet they managed to have both rooms demo’d quickly and ready for hardwood. The hardwood came flying out of the boxes and it was installed exactly as I had envisioned—installed so expertly that I didn’t even need transition strips between the existing hardwood floor of a different color and species that abuts the new floors.

Both rooms are amazing! Mike finished the job on time and his quote was very competitive (and he did not exceed his quote). I would use The Good Neighbor again for any job, big or small, and will enthusiastically recommend him to family and friends at every opportunity.

We have had a home at Bethany for more than ten years and have learned the value of finding a reliable, responsive contractor who does quality work at a reasonable price. Mike Kappes and his team at The Good Neighbor LLC demonstrated all these qualities during their work on a recent significant renovation at our home. Mike won a competitive bid to manage a number of home upgrades (new roof, gutters and downspouts, painting the entire exterior and interior and installing a concrete drive.) As is always the case during such projects, along the way we both modified and added to the original scope of work. At every step The Good Neighbor delivered service and results that exceeded our expectations. We would not hesitate to recommend The Good Neighbor for any home improvement you currently have under consideration.

The Good Neighbor has been providing quality property mgt for our Ocean View second home for almost 3 years. The company was a natural go-to source when we were contemplating a screen porch conversion to a Florida room (including a very complicated change of flooring in a Great Room leading to the room renovation). Every step of the way Mike Kappes and his team have been very professional and considerate going well above and beyond one's normal expectations. Once we made our selections we left the project totally to his supervision because we completely trust Mike and his eye for detail. The project was completely turnkey. When we arrived to see the final completion, all we had to do was bask in its beauty. The Good Neighbor's work is meticulous and that of a perfectionist. We've never experienced a renovation project of such ease. We found the Good Neighbor's pricing to be fair (the job even came in under budget) and the quality outstanding. We are thrilled with the finished product which will provide our family with enjoyment for many years to come.
