Enjoyed working with Thomas from the original plans, revisions and installation. The cabinet from plans to installation was completed on time and on budget, which is unusual in today environment. Thomas came back after 2 weeks to make sure that all was conforming with what he had promised and to make a few adjustments that were needed to the cabinet doors after all had settled. I would hire Thomas and his “INNOVATIVE” company again for any future cabinet needs. Thank you Thomas; we need more of your type of company and work!!!

I’m super pleased with my new cabinet. It’s awesome!

Tom Cook was professional and friendly. I would recommend him to all my friends and family. He did a great job installing our cabinets.

I couldn’t be more pleased with their product. I now have extra room for my linens. It was a fast installation and quick clean up, which I do appreciate.

“Bob and I want to thank you for the beautiful linen cabinets you designed and installed for us. The construction is impeccable – I especially love the lighter color wood used around the edges – and installation was very professional. We will definitely recommend your company to any onae who needs quality cabinet work done.”


We have had the pleasure of working with Tom and his crew on numerous large

projects throughout our house. We can’t say enough about the skill,

professionalism, hard work, and friendliness of Tom, his staff, and the

sub-contractors he hires.


Our first experience was a number of years ago. Tom designed and installed a

custom TV/Entertainment center in our family room. Though the final project

appears “simple”, the design was anything but simple; we required the unit

to be built with a specific angle and well as areas of recessed and built

out shelving. We also asked Tom to design and build a coordinating fireplace

mantle. The result is beautiful. There is nothing we would change if we had

the opportunity to do again!


While the Entertainment Center project was progressing we discovered a leak

in an upstairs bathroom. Tom came to the rescue. His team removed, fixed,

and replaced the damaged flooring and appliances. And then  to add more to

his load, we decided to have his team install a whole-house fan in our

upstairs hallway. These impromptu projects were completed quickly and with

high quality.


Our largest project was recently hiring Tom to completely remodel our large,

two-story home. He was designer, builder and head contractor. Again, his

team and his sub-contractors were extremely skilled,  professional, and

timely. The work included complete demolition and remodel of our kitchen.

Tom helped us create a fabulous kitchen with beautiful cabinetry, additional

counter space, and better placement of appliances. We removed all flooring

and replaced with hardwood, tile, and carpeting. We removed and added a few

walls; added and moved electrical outlets and lighting; replaced all

baseboards throughout house; removed and installed new stair railings; and

painted the entire interior. As if this wasn’t enough, his crew discovered a

leak within our laundry room that they fixed and repaired for us.


As with all projects Tom has done for us, there is nothing we would change

if we had the opportunity to do again!! This attests to his planning, skill

in design, and ability to work the customer to get it perfect. I would

highly recommend ‘We’re Innovative’ for your design, cabinetry, and general

contracting work.

To Tom, I got everything but the wall ovens installed today (electrician finishing up tomorrow) and I could almost cry. I just can’t express how nicely everything has come together. You guys have been a testament to good work, and I really appreciate it. 5 weeks isn’t a bad turnaround at all, and a large part of that has been your timely performance. Money well spent (you can use that) although I should have had you guys do the down draft 🙂

It’s a testament to your crew and I would love it if you would personally thank them (the line guys too!!) for us. I can go into load in/change over monday with a completed and working kitchen, and a delay of even three days would have prevented that. Again, thank you.

You guys did a great job! I appreciate the help from everyone we had contact with in your company. You guys have a great attitude! Thanks again for the great work.

Tom, We are very pleased with the remodel of our two bathrooms. Everything we planned, colors, lighting, custom cabinets, counter tops, sinks, toilets, Jacuzzi tub, shower, pocket doors and hardware came together and created the dream baths we had hoped for.


Our remodel required gutting two bathrooms and changing a bathroom with a shower into a Jacuzzi tub and a bathroom with bath tub into a shower. Because of this, we greatly appreciated working with you to improve on our initial designs and your suggestions of more cost effective ways to implement them. We also appreciated your willingness and ability to follow through with various changes we made as the job progressed.

We were always pleased to see your employees arrive, as they were all about doing the best for us each day. They came to the job clean and ready to work with a positive attitude. They are highly skilled professionals and they were always accommodating, in working with us to meet our needs. We kind of miss seeing them now that the job is completed.

It was a pleasure to have you and your employees remodel our bathrooms. You were truly Innovative in meeting our remodel design needs.

We highly recommend your company, We’re Innovative, for all remodeling.

I want to thank you all for taking care of my kitchen drawer so expeditiously. I really appreciate all your efforts to make sure my kitchen looked gorgeous for my son’s wedding rehearsal dinner. I had many comments about how beautiful it is and I took the opportunity to tell people about your wonderful service. Again, thank you so much!

Dear Tom,

Often you hear people say that it is now difficult to get good workers. I wanted to share with you how pleased I was with your workers, your guidance, and the entire remodel project.

San Diego Kitchen Remodel

I had considered redoing my miserable old kitchen for a couple of years. The cupboard paint was very worn and the shelving was fixed, and if the bottle or box was too tall there was no option. A couple of months before meeting you I had done all my homework and interviewed several contractors. I had considered all possible combinations of remodeling of the kitchen – just painting or refacing, or new cupboards, and no new counter tops, or laminate tops, composite tops, or finally granite.

After having the opportunity to discuss some of my specific and some vague ideas with you and hearing your input, and seeing samples, I felt that you were the person that I could trust to do a good job. I realized that doing any combination of the partial options previously considered would not achieve a pretty and workable kitchen and collectively would have been expensive. After all, one doesn’t do a major remodel of the kitchen often.

Being without a kitchen has its surprising inconveniences, having the renovation – actually a whole new kitchen – complete a week ahead of schedule was terrific.

Your crew was very neat, polite, and focused. I would use them again for future projects and highly recommend them. Thank you for all your kind and creative guidance. The amenities, such as the lighting, the arch, and the gliding pull-outs are delightful. It all turned out wonderfully, with a real ‘Wow’ factor. It is beautiful. Thank you.
