- Shirl & Rowan of Westhampton, MassachusettsWe consider Brad to be the best in his field
Brad Kennison worked for us from June, 2016, to May, 2017 (plus several months of planning and follow-up adjustments afterwards) to completely remodel our kitchen, living room and dining area. During that time he also created a new bathroom from a storage area. The short answer is we can easily recommend Brad to anyone considering remodeling or freshly installing any type of home construction.
Our two main projects (new kitchen and master bath) were meticulously planned over several months prior to the actual work starting. Brad looks carefully at all the details and makes plans that show the placement of everything he expects to install. He added in some fat for unanticipated things. The original time estimate was around five months but the extent of the remodel and multiple problems related the house pushed the overall time out to a year but in return we got a level of quality we just never would have gotten with a less conscientious company that values turn-around time over quality.
Possibly the biggest plus was Brad’s personality. Never did he get impatient or annoyed when problems came up. As mentioned, many hidden issues surfaced that required much more time and work on his part (hence the much longer time frame). There were hundreds of interactions (questions, revisions and updates) that could have resulted in getting testy, short tempered or frustrated, which never happened with Brad. He seemed to always be in a good mood.
Brad also does the majority of his own work. Many specific items were ordered (cabinets, windows, doors, tiles), which he installed. For areas that required more expertise, he would subcontract (floors, dry walls, plumbing, electrical, granite/marble countertops, painting, roof), but many other speciality areas he did himself (tiles and grouting, ceilings, appliance installation). He went with us to select a raw piece of walnut for the center island counter, which weighed hundreds of pounds, required a special saw that he purchased for the cutting, and extensive finishing to make it into a unique top.
He was often present when the subcontractors were working, and if not, was always available by phone. Most remarkable was the design and installation of a “cat superhighway” with a staircase to a perch rising from the middle of the center island with walkways high above leading to the living room. Brad enthusiastically embraced this fairly insane idea and made it work.
Many smaller projects emerged as work progressed (moisture barrier under the floor, rebuilding part of the deck and a bedroom wall that started a leak, adding the proper air flow and vent in the kitchen ceiling, among many others) that significantly increased the cost and time. Brad often did not write up Change Orders for every little thing that emerged. The quality we liked was Brad’s constant checking with one of us to confirm that something was getting installed exactly the way we wanted it. There were many times we asked what he thought, but he always wanted to be sure we were all on the same page before the work was started.
After completion: Brad followed-up to fix or modify problems that arose after completion. Pocket doors and drawers needed adjusting. Certain plumbing and electrical items needed adjustment also, and his subcontractors were happy to return to fix those issues.
Our new kitchen with custom cabinets and center island designed to take advantage of the view, plus the new master bath with steam room and pocket door, have added a level of elegance and comfort to our home that will last us decades. We consider Brad to be the best in his field and would easily put him at the top of any list of candidates for remodeling or reconstruction.

- Two Years & More Beautiful
It is hard to believe that it haws been nearly two years since you installed our beautiful kitchen! I just wanted to drop you a line and tell you again how much Jeannine and I love it. The cherry cabinets just get more beautiful as they age, just as you said they would. Those cabinets are really well made and the only problems that we had were over a year after they were installed. There was a problem with a couple doors and the soft close mechanism on one of the drawers did not work properly. You fixed both problems at no cost to me, that is service that you do not get often these days and I want to thank you again for taking care of us. I would recommend you to anyone and feel free to have someone contact me so I can personally vouch for your fine work and follow-up service. We feel that we made a friend when we did business with you.
P.S. Those replacement doors have aged and match the rest of the cabinets beautifully. That cherry is sure hard to beat and it goes well with the dark granite counter tops.
- My Kitchen Is Beautiful & Functional
The kitchen you designed and built for us is absolutely fantastic. I love it more every day.
From the beginning you were always there with samples, examples and suggestions. Your final design was extremely creative and your ideas to increase space and functionality were truly inspired.
Your workmanship and craftsmanship was outstanding. My kitchen is beautiful as well as functional. We appreciated the way you completed the project with a minimum of hardship for us as well – no dumpster in our yard, you cleaned up after each work day and we were still able to function in the home with minimal disruption while the project was ongoing.
Most importantly, you started the project exactly when you said you would and finished exactly when you said you would and right on budget.
Thank you, Brad for your precision, workmanship, craftsmanship and design. All I can say is you truly are a man of your word who takes great pride in what you do.

- Bathroom Renovation A Pleasurable Experience
To Brad Kennison:
I am writing to place my extreme satisfaction with B.J. Kennison Company on record. My reasons for such satisfaction include:
That all promises by Mr. Kennison were kept, including a timely start-up and completion date.
High quality results.
Personability – and the list goes on.
Mr. Kennison did not try to “tack on” extra costs and charges competitive fees. Before any agreements were reached, Mr. Kennison spent hours with us to determine exactly what we desired in order to give us a price quote. He took the time necessary to assure the job would be done right.
In summary, B.J. Kennison Co. made my bathroom renovation a pleasurable experience. I would recommend this company and you may have people contact me at (413) 527-8101 with any questions.
- Bright Airy Kitchen
Well, it has taken me quite a long time to write this letter, but I finally said I must write to BJ to tell him how much we love our new kitchen.
I have never cooked so much in my whole life since the completion of our new, bright, airy kitchen. I love the new large work area!!! I’m so glad that you were able to fit it into our plans. It is the most gorgeous kitchen on our street.
I guess I’ve always been a little skeptical working with a designer and a builder, but BJ, you were the easiest and most pleasant person in the world to work with. You are very honest and fair and always worked with us to stay on budget, even when I requested a bookcase in my kitchen. I am really glad we were able to add that special area to my kitchen.
I would highly recommend you to any family that wants a beautiful new kitchen. You and your team always cleaned up after a days work and gave us a wonderful new kitchen to enjoy with my family and our friends.
We wish you much happiness and a great future in your business and hope someday to have you work with us in our bathrooms.
Our very best to a great builder and friend,
Tom & Mary Jo Kirk
