Tom and his crew were exceptional in every way. They worked hard with great attention to detal, were fun to be around, and cleaned up the workspace at the end of each day The custom cabinets are a work of art. Tom is a detail person, everything up to code and to the customer's satisfaction. He is very knowledgeable, made excellent suggestions, and was very responsive answering questions and taking care of details. This was a five week job; he just stopped by this morning to finish a few minor details. I couldn't be happier with the quality or the experience and I now have the kitchen of my dreams that is both beautiful and functional. Tom has my highest recommendation.
Description of work:
Kitchen was a complete gut job except for the tile flooring. Custom cabinets, stone countertops, tile backsplash, ceiling and under cabinet lighting.
Hit the Jackpot!

We feel like we hit the jack pot with Tom and his team. From exactly one month (to the day) from demo, I'm writing this review sitting at my brand new kitchen island in a completely renovated kitchen. He's very detail oriented, so your job will be completed to perfection. I can't say enough good things about our experience with him. He's upfront with details and is always available if you have questions. Dust during the process was a concern of mine, and I can't believe how clean these guys keep the work space. If you ask me for the cons about using him...there are none. We couldn't be happier with our new kitchen and are looking forward to many many years of cooking and living in this space!!

I am very pleased with the work that Tom and his team did with our kitchen renovation project. He hired qualified contractors to work along with him and the overall team did an excellent job. His team was polite, on time, cleaned up at the end of the day and provided quality workmanship.
Our kitchen renovation was a 6 week project that started in the beginning of November and overlapped with Thanksgiving (we knew this going into the project) and finished mid December. The timeline that he put forth in the beginning was met and 6 weeks later, we had a new kitchen.
The cabinets that he installs are top of the line and we have been very pleased with them. The benefits of using these type of cabinets are that a) they are high quality and b) you can have them custom made for the specifics of your kitchen. This was very helpful in our case due to the dimensions of our kitchen and the fact that we wanted to add an island into the space. Tom will follow all code requirements (as he should) and due to the fact that he uses a custom build cabinet maker, we could design the cabinets to be the dimensions we needed. Because of this, we had just enough space that we were able to fit a small kitchen island into our footprint as well as a much needed pantry and still stay within code. The other contractors we spoke with were not able to do this because they did not have the option of custom cabinetry (or if they had that option, it was outrageously expensive). I can???t rave enough about the new cabinets in my kitchen.
Our kitchen desperately needed redone and I waited a long time to finally pull the trigger to hire someone to do it for fear of hiring the wrong contractor. Any kitchen renovation will be stressful (you have to make a lot of decisions in a short period of time which can be challenging and I had to live without a sink for 4+ weeks) but in the end, I was pleased with the work provided by All Star Custom Kitchens. Six months later, we have not had one problem with the work or the installation that Tom and his team did and would recommend them to others.

Wonderful to Work With!
Posted by: Charles M.
Tom Gogal and his team were absolutely wonderful to work with. We wanted to completely replace the cabinets and counters in our kitchen, and also cut out a wall to install a breakfast bar area. We had received several other quotes, but for the quality of the work and the professionalism employed by Tom and his workers, we don't regret paying the minor difference in price. From the first time we met him, Tom was extremely helpful in listening to our ideas and suggesting ways to accomplish our goals, and the results are amazing. The work took a little longer than we expected (we were told at the beginning that it would only take 2 weeks - we have a smaller kitchen), but honestly we didn't mind once we began to see the results - and the reason for the delay was simply because the granite company needed to measure the cabinets after being installed to make sure the countertops fit perfectly. The cabinets are the best quality we have ever seen in any kitchen, and the counters are beautiful. We went with an off-the-shelf Pergo XP flooring, but Tom gave us great advice in choosing the right floor for our kitchen, and his team installed it perfectly. Tom and his workers showed up promptly when they said they would show up, and always made sure to clean up their work area before they left every day. When finishing the walls, we were prepared for dust to cover everything, but they took such care to minimize the dust level that we didn't even have to dust off the table in the next room. Any time we had any questions, Tom was quick to respond via text message or phone call if needed. We would not hesitate in the slightest to recommend Tom Gogal and All Star Custom Kitchens!
Beyond the boundaries of the kitchen!

The scope of this remodel went beyond the boundaries of the kitchen. At Tom?s suggestion, we also replaced our old furnace and hot water tank to high-efficiency models. By venting the new furnace and hot water tank directly out through the basement wall, we were able to use the space formerly taken up with the exhaust pipe from the furnace, to expand the pantry. While we were in ?demo mode?, we decided to re-hardwood our entire first floor to achieve a consistent flow to the flooring.
While this was not part of Tom?s job, he did connect us with Kathy Piccoli of Floor Coverings International, who did an excellent job of helping us select and install new flooring. She and Tom coordinated schedules to keep everything moving in a timely manner.
Tom and his team (including subcontractors) were respectful, friendly, kept the job on track and finished in an amazing 5 ?? weeks (this included 2 weeks waiting for countertops to be fabricated). His love of what he does shows from the moment you meet him. High energy and plenty of ideas flowed from the get-go. Communication was top-notch. He always answered his phone himself or replied to email and texts promptly. He prides himself on doing one job at a time so that nothing falls through the cracks. No doubt, we are very happy with our new kitchen and would highly recommend All Star Custom Kitchens!
