Burke Carson is the Best for Sunrooms
Review of Carson Design and Remodeling In May and June of 2016, Carson Design and Remodeling added a sunroom to our house in Ithaca NY. We loved working with Burke Carson, and are more than happy with our Four Seasons Sunroom. Burke was very clear about our contract. He explained how had to go about getting the necessary permits from the City of Ithaca, and let us know when that, inevitably, hit a snag. He always kept us updated on progression of the work. He let us know what decisions we needed to make and when they needed to be done. We actually enjoyed the process, and were always glad to chat with Burke. He hired very good people, too, to dig the foundation, lay the tile, and install the heater. He also saved me from myself when painting the walls. I thought I’d purchased a grayed white paint, but ended up with dark grey—not what you want in a sunroom. Burke explained that paint mixers sometimes make mistakes, and told me how to get the problem fixed. Burke Carson designed the room to fit with our house and our needs. I moved my writing work out there for the rest of the summer, and we ate dinner out there. We used the little heater until the temperature got below freezing, but I’m planning to move my work out there on the first of March! In Ithaca, where it’s gray from November through April, and sometimes for half the summer, our sunroom lets us enjoy extra light while staying out of the rain and snow. Over the holidays, we also discovered that it works as an extra refrigerator. If you can afford it (and the cost is not as high as we feared) a sunroom helps with that old Seasonal Affective Disorder. For sunrooms and any remodeling, we highly recommend Carson Design and Remodeling.

Two sunrooms that we love!
Carson Design & Remodeling added a Four Seasons 17' x 12' sunroom addition off the second floor of our house in 2011. We liked it so much that we had a second one built (14' x 10') off the study above the garage in 2014. The fact that we hired Carson Design a second time to build another sunroom is testimony to his level of professionalism and quality of work. The sunrooms provide a very enjoyable space that we use year round. We had a radiant heat system installed in the floor of the sunroom on the house to keep it warm in the winter and a wood stove keeps the other one toasty. The sunrooms also create a much more open and lighted environment throughout the rest of the house and study. The work was completed in a timely fashion. Most of the work was done by Burke Carson and one assistant. Since Burke was on site most days we were able to keep up to date on progress and discuss any issues/questions that arose during the construction process. Over time we've only had one problem with a leaky sky light two years after completion - Burke came over and re-sealed the window. No problems since then. Overall, Burke is a great guy and we enjoyed his company while he was here. We still see him around town and keep in touch. We highly recommend Carson Design & Remodeling.
