General contractor Artie Small learned his craft at a very young age. Starting in his teens, he worked with his father, who was in the home improvement business for 30 years until passing in 1983. Artie Small excelled in bathroom tile repair, finding the source of leaks, and eventually branched out into bathroom remodeling. In the early 90s, he joined forces with Ray Jutt, a master carpenter, and expanded to include kitchen remodeling. Now they also handle interior carpentry, windows, doors, moldings and sheetrock work.

“Happiness is a watertight shower,” said Small, who will take on most any job, from a leaky faucet or broken tiles, to a whole bathroom or kitchen remodel. Sometimes, repairs are done to hold clients over until they can afford their dream job. Small works with professionals he has known for decades - master plumbers, electricians and carpenters. In addition to being hands-on himself, he coordinates and supervises all phases of the work.

Small will come to a residence and work with a client to plan a remodel. Customers can view books, or see finished jobs via computer. He works with Blackman Plumbing Supply, which has multiple showrooms, and he encourages customers to save pictures from magazines for ideas. Computer renderings can be provided for kitchen and bathroom layouts, if needed. The business keeps up with the latest techniques and materials to ensure lasting beauty and performance. And, they have the ability to make design and structural changes on the fly to please a customer. “We solve problems with integrity, without taking shortcuts,” added Small.

“The care and quality of our kitchen installations caught the eye of a well-known high-quality cabinet manufacturer, Craft-Maid, in Pennsylvania. Over the years, we have become their “go to” company for all their warranty work in the Tri State Area. Long lasting relationships with local suppliers and manufacturers have been built as well, which allows for special considerations when acquiring special products and services.”
