High-quality workmanship, creative solutions, attention to detail, and responsiveness define Paradigm.
Paradigm Contracting Services is our go-to contractor: We have been thrilled by the quality of their work and their responsiveness to our needs, and we enthusiastically recommend them to anyone. Paradigm completely renovated the kitchen and dining room and two bathrooms in our late-1940s era house (removing everything down to the studs and joists), displaying a remarkable creativity in making these cramped rooms more open and functional--and at times overcoming hidden problems in the original plumbing and electrical and construction work. In addition, they are our go-to contractor for all of our repair and home-improvement needs: From performing emergency plumbing and electrical repairs to installing built-in shelving to doing landscaping work. They have consistently met or exceeded our highest expectations--and they do it within budget and at a high quality of workmanship. We have been very pleased by the creativity with which Paradigm has tackled some very large projects (completely renovating a kitchen and dining room and two bathrooms), and especially how they were able to correct unknown problems in the original construction. For example, for both of our bathrooms, they completely replumbed, in the process correcting long-standing problems with drainage and clogging that dated back to the original plumbing job when the house was built. In one bathroom, they discovered a large amount of empty space inside one wall and used that unused space to install a built-in linen closet. Finally, when during construction on our kitchen and dining room, they recommended improvements in our HVAC system, electrical wiring, lighting, and storage that made those rooms more pleasant and functional. In all of these cases, Paradigm quickly discerned problems we didn't know existed and devised cost-effective means of correcting them. Paradigm's attention to detail and high-quality workmanship have also given their projects special touches that get noticed. When renovating our house's original small dining room and cramped, galley-style kitchen, they removed an exterior wall between the old dining room and an enclosed porch (pulling down several hundreds of pounds of bricks and masonry without causing a crack anywhere in the house), remaking the old enclosed porch into an open and airy dining room. Paradigm expanded the kitchen into the old dining room, making the kitchen more open and functional and giving us much more prep space and storage. They rewired the kitchen, giving us ample electrical outlets with enough power for all of the appliances and gadgets we can use and vastly improving the lighting options. And when tiling our kitchen, dining room, and bathrooms, they laid out interesting tile patterns to add a touch of class and even draw attention to some of the house's original architectural elements. Paradigm is also responsive. When we experienced a near-catestrophic plumbing problem, they stayed late into the night after a long day to fix the problem. When we experienced a similarly bad clog in our drainage from the house to the street, they quickly responded on a weekend to fix it. When we experienced multiple electrical failures related to our HVAC system, Paradigm painstakingly checked the wiring to find a hard-to-identify problem that caused the repeated shortages. When we wanted to quickly renovate our two bathrooms before we brought our newborn daughter home from the hospital, Paradigm juggled their work schedules to fit us in--finishing those bathrooms quickly. Paradigm seem to be able to do it all--and they have done a lot for us. And they have done it well. And they have done it within budget. And they have done it quickly and on a flexible schedule. We continue to call them (indeed, they will soon rework our outdoor lighting for us!). We hope you will let them perform their magic for you, too!

We've had several jobs completed to our satisfaction by this contractor over several years.
The contractor was quite knowledgeable and professional. His crew was friendly and accommodating. The job was done in a timely and well structured manner, just as quoted. The site was left in a neat and clean state. As unexpected, and unquoted, issues arose, the contractor addressed them in a cooperative and cost efficient manner. Any concerns and apprehensions on our part were discussed and explained before any work or expense was expended. Contractor used his extensive experience and contacts in the trade to get us the best product for the most reasonable cost. I am constantly learning from my interactions with him. He is always available for follow-up and corrective actions, as necessary, as infrequent as they have been. He is still our Go-To-Guy for all of our Home Repair and Renovation issues.

Excellent work quality and honesty
Recently, I had the opportunity to arrange for Paradigm Contracting Services to work on a few home projects. They tackled our kitchen remodeling with love and great care. And, what a job it was! After tearing out old wall paneling, installing insulation (which had been left out during the original construction), and painting the walls and ceiling, replacing the windows, the workers at Paradigm installed a beautiful, perfectly level and evenly spaced stone floor. Mr. Lee Chaudry, Paradigm's owner, painstakingly searched the local suppliers to be sure the floor and back splash tiles were exactly what we wanted. I have never seen as much collaboration, assistance, guidance, honesty and service as provide by Mr. Chaudry and Paradigm Contracting Services. Don't just go by the lowest price - go with honesty, the best quality of materials (in our case, selected by Mr. Chaudry) and workmanship. In the long run, you will come out ahead. The next project Paradigm did was my home office. Freshly painted walls and ceiling, new, energy efficient windows, like the ones installed in the kitchen and all the trimmings. Finally, something every homeowner will appreciate: The crew is clean and careful. They cleaned as they went and left our home without a speck of dust or debris. We are not finished with Paradigm; we have other projects that are awaiting their turn. Meanwhile, we would highly recommend Paradigm Contracting to all friends and neighbors.

From a Repeat Customer
Punctual- Courteous- Detailed work- I have used them for numerous projects from the simple(painting of front porch) to the complex (full kitchen remodel) and found in all cases, that my ideas were given full consideration - and followed as far as possible - My wilder flights of fantasy were taken seriously and funneled into "we can do that, but its best this way". I have used them over the past eight years and would and do recommend them continuously. -Built both my decks -Remodeled bathrooms - Paved Driveway - Remodeled basement
