S.J. Janis Company to Host Grafton Condominium Open House

Aug. 8, 2012

S.J. Janis Company, a full-service design/build firm in Wauwatosa, Wis., will host a tour of two condominiums in Grafton’s Hunter’s Ridge subdivision from 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on Sat., Aug. 25.

One project, 2159 Seminole St., is first floor condo that the owners wanted to update by removing the builder grade finishes and create a look of clean and timeless quality. Laminate countertops were replaced with Cielo de Oro Granite and a low-maintenance Blanco Silgranit undermount kitchen sink. With the laminate backsplash removed, tile to match the existing tile backsplash was added to make for a clean transition at the new countertop. Within view of the kitchen, the fireplace was customized with a straight-lined mantle, staggered Travertine tile, and a decorative tile mosaic to emulate the kitchen tile. For the owner’s appreciation of wood, French Distressed Maple flooring was selected at the public gathering spaces and new Karastan Naden cut pile carpeting for the guest bedroom for durability and softness. A new stainless steel Frigidaire Professional slide-in gas range, French door refrigerator, and over-the-range microwave completed the updated kitchen.

The second condo at 2208 Seminole St. lent itself to an easy living lifestyle, but it needed personal touches and expressions to make it a home. Warmth was added with the inclusion of engineered Brazilian Teak flooring throughout the entry, kitchen, dinette, and living room, as well as Mannington Adura grouted luxury vinyl tile at the master bathroom and guest bathroom.  Laminate countertops were replaced with a Solarius Granite countertop and a full backsplash of Bliss Cappuccino and Stone mosaics at the kitchen, Juperana Granite in the master bathroom, and Royal Oyster Marble in the guest bathroom. Lighting was added for better illumination and reflection of personal preference, and new appliances in stainless steel provided for a modern flare. Arch-top cabinet doors were replaced with square-top doors with satin nickel hardware, and the fireplace was redesigned with a modified mantle, black trim, and a tile surround to develop continuity from the kitchen into the living room. A warm palette of colors finished the walls throughout the condo, which now has timeless charm and reflects the owner’s personality.

“We place emphasis on creating spaces that are unique to the homeowner,” said Gary Sannes, CR, CGR, company president.  “We believe each project will inspire those that visit the home, providing valuable insight on design and the possibilities available in their own home.”

GuildQuality, Inc., an independent customer satisfaction-surveying firm serving a nationwide community of homebuilders and Remodelers, recognizes S. J. Janis Company as a Guildmaster with Highest Distinction.  The honor recognizes building professionals who have lengthy track records of exceptional customer service.  In the most recent survey, S.J. Janis achieved a 96% referral rate, with 92% of the company’s projects having been completed on time or ahead of schedule, and a 85% of the Janis clients said it was “easier than expected” to complete the remodeling project.

With three Certified Professionals on staff, S.J. Janis Company is a member of several home improvement associations, including the Milwaukee/NARI Home Improvement Council, Inc., National Kitchen & Bath Association, and the Metropolitan Builders Association.

For the 23rd consecutive year, the S.J. Janis Company was a recipient of Wisconsin Remodeler of the Year Awards from the Milwaukee/NARI Home Improvement Council, the only company to be so recognized in each year of the award competition.  Awards garnered in the 2011 competition were Gold Awards for Residential Interior Over $100,000 and Kitchen $40,000-$80,000, as well as Silver Awards for Bath Over $60,000 and for Website Redesign.  In addition, the company was recipient of the prestigious “Reader’s Choice” Award presented by M Magazine in conjunction with the WRA program for its Bath Over $60,000 project.
