Allan and Mary Anne Dunlop Kingston, On.

“We are Allan and Mary Anne Dunlop of Kingston, Ontario and have completed two projects with Progressive Kitchens (owned and operated by Chesco Garofalo).  The first was the restoration of a large property.  Chesco’s team was intimately involved with the design and creation of a kitchen, dining room cabinets, a laundry room, a bar, two bathrooms, two offices and four fireplace breakfronts.  It was a complex and demanding challenge.  The second was the renovation of a smaller property (we downsized fifteen years later) where Chesco designed and created the kitchen, two bathrooms, an office, the laundry room and three storage areas.

We were so happy with Chesco and his team.  His example has infected them with a quiet professionalism and a desire to provide solutions, not problems.  Nothing is too difficult and customer satisfaction is the ultimate goal.  We have no reservations in recommending Progressive Kitchens for your project.”

Michelle Isbester Napanee, On.

We have been working with Progressive Kitchens for almost 10 years. They provide the design, products and installation for all of our residential and commercial projects. We have witnessed Francesco and his Team of professionals offer their unmatched care and attention to each individual client. Two years ago we embarked on our own custom home. This time as clients ourselves, we experienced the Progressive Kitchen Team work along side of us with the same patience, care and attention we had come to value over the years. Their service is second to no one. We cannot imagine working with anyone else.

Thanks Francesco – you and your Team are truly amazing!

Progressive Kitchens was referred to me and after doing some research, I chose to work with Chesco and his team. Best decision ever!!! I had some very clear ideas about my ‘dream’ kitchen and their work exceeded all expectations. My wish list was carefully listened to and suggestions for improvement were given. I now spend most of my time in my kitchen/meeting space and it is wonderful to have such a place to be with my friends and family but also to have my own piece of tranquility. My dream to be able to work in the kitchen easily and yet have space for visitors has been met!

Why progressive kitchens? We had done several estimates and we selected Progessive Kitchens not because of price but because of attention to detail at a fair price. Working with them through the design phase was a pleasure and the installation reflected the same attention to detail. Dave and I absolutely love our new kitchen!!!!

D.K – Kingston, Ont.

I love my new kitchen. I found Chesco and Michelle very professional and easy to work with, the workmanship is first-class. the cabinets, soft-close doors/drawers/pantry/spice drawer all wonderful, and crown moulding to ceiling to cove bulkhead beautiful. There were no surprises. Progressive worked with my husband and myself to accommodate our plan and provide advice as needed from their experience. They were always available, and quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had. Everything flowed smoothly, timelines were met; budget adhered to. Their contractors/apprentices/craftsmen were all professional, friendly and tidy. They had a variety of product to choose from including sinks, and would recommend other places to go if they didn’t have what we wanted. I would highly recommend Progressive Kitchens to anyone looking to remodel or plan a new kitchen. And their new showroom is beautiful!

It was such a pleasure to work with Progressive Kitchens. From start to finish the staff handled the job with utmost professionalism. What I like most about them is their ability to listen to the client, their wants and desires, and effectively translate this into the design, within budget and in a timely manner. The project was completed without any glitches and the end result reflects their attention to detail and superb craftsmanship. In the end, I got the kitchen of my dreams that is not only beautiful but optimally functional. I would highly recommend Progressive Kitchens!

Dear Michelle and Francesco:

I wanted to give you feedback on our experience of having our kitchen makeover done by your company. We chose your company for many reasons—a long list of satisfied friends who worked with you in the past few years, the fact that you run a family business, and your very personalized attention to detail. We knew that you would make every effort to install our vision of the kitchen we wanted. We found it very easy to negotiate the details and we felt confident you would produce a wonderful result that we would be happy with. On all counts, you lived up to our high expectations. Your slogan, “Kitchens bring people together” certainly rings true in our house now. I love spending time in this lovely kitchen and I have a list of dinner parties to celebrate this special room.

Martin & Martha – Kingston, Ont.

My husband and I loved working with Chesco Garofalo and Progressive Kitchens Inc. He had great solutions for the space and we received the utmost concern, respect and consideration throughout the design process. I never felt rushed or pushed into any decision and my ideas and needs were all addressed. We’re really enjoying our new kitchen – it’s completely transformed our 27 year old home and I would highly recommend Progressive Kitchens Inc. I would also like to mention Albert Manning Construction who was the contractor for all of the demo and reconstruction. We were very pleased with his work as well.

Pierre & Nicole B. – Kingston, Ont.

Working with Progressive was a pleasure. Chesco suggested some great solutions to layout issues we were struggling with. At the same time, he displayed a solid understanding of our goals and preferences. He and Michelle went out of their way to provide a wide selection of potential choices for our cabinets. The plans and quotes provided were perfectly clear and the job was completed right on schedule. We have received a lot of compliments for our kitchen but more importantly, we just love how well it fits with the adjacent rooms. Overall, we are delighted with the results and very appreciative of the peace of mind we experienced while working with Progressive. Pierre & Nicole B.

Patricia & Dave – Kingston, Ont.

We want to express our appreciation to Progressive Kitchens for a process from design to completion that was smooth and seamless. The installation was efficient and on time, and the installers were friendly, patient and professional. We are very pleased with the high standard of workmanship and care that was applied to the job. Our friends and family walk into our home and their breath is taken away with the transformation of a chopped up space into an open and inviting kitchen. The function and flow of the new kitchen is incredible. Everything is so beautiful and well-built that I wouldn’t change a thing. We love our kitchen and Progressive Kitchens made this possible.
