We highly recommend Joe Vilardo! Over the years we have used several architects, who gave us expensive plans that did not reflect what we asked for, and needed extra revisions, which cost extra money. Sometimes it seemed like it was their art project, and not our wishes. Joe, visited our site, saw what we had to work with, and listened to our wishes and concerns. He is a great communicator and asked questions and explained things very well, so there were no miscommunication surprises. In addition, just like you expect in an experienced professional, he often had great, simple ideas to improve things that we had not thought of, not to jack up the price, but to make the design better. He was super easy to work with, agreeable with everybody, quick to respond, and always available throughout the whole project if anything was needed. In short, Joe did a great job. We will definitely use him again
We met with Joe Vilardo to discuss the possibility of creating an addition on our lake home. We wanted to add a little more room without losing the charm of being a small cottage. Joe listened to our interests, asked great questions about style, usage, budget and other things that we never thought of. He was helpful in choosing our contractor as well. He has a great eye and his drafts could be framed and hung as art. He created a plan for our addition and we could not be any more satisfied!
I can't think of anyone I would give a higher recommendation to. Joe's level of professionalism and knowledge was only matched by his kindness and patience. Joe was extremely helpful in designing and coming up with creative ideas to ensure that our home was one of a kind and everything we dreamed it would be.
