Why on earth would you associate an ugly skylight photo with a post about your company? Well, we’re glad you asked. And, let’s call a spade a spade. That IS an ugly skylight, isn’t it?
Don’t you know that every time the homeowner entered the bathroom beneath that skylight, she cringed? Would a spider drop down from those impossible-to-reach-and-clean corners along the rooﬂine? Was the peeling paint caused by a roof leak, or just years of relentless bathroom humidity now crying for a new paint job? Worse yet, how was she supposed to know the diﬀerence?
Seriously, why are we talking about ugly skylights? Again, we’re glad you asked. We care about those ugly skylights because they are but one detail that matters to you. When something matters to you, it matters to us. When our clients trust us to serve their remodeling and construction needs, we care. Simple, but true. The details simply matter — all the details, even things like ugly skylights haunting an arachnophobic homeowner.
You see, UNIQ isn’t just a company, it’s our way. We’re a small, family owned business that has the luxury of caring for our clients. Integrity, accountability and service aren’t just keywords to us. We live out these values and stand behind them in our work. Houses here in the beautiful Pacifc Northwest are expensive, even more so in Bellevue and the surrounding Eastside, and the expense of remodeling can be as startling as spiders hanging from a skylight. But we’re not talking about houses. Wait – we’re not? Nope. We’re talking about the stage where your family’s story unfolds. We’re talking about your sanctuary from the busyness of this world. We’re talking about the place where memories are made year after year after year. We’re not just talking about the American dream; we’re talking about your home. And, we understand how difficult it is to invest your hard earned dollars into the great unknown of a general contractor’s hands. That’s why we thought it was so important to present our first blog post as an introduction. We want you to know more than just what we do. We want you to know who we truly are and why it makes us unique.
Back to that skylight. It wasn’t originally part of the whole home remodeling plan. However, our builder witnessed a spider-homeowner interaction and heard on more than one occasion about that ugly skylight. A careful inspection revealed there was no leak. Great! We could have simply restored the drywall and paint, but we had a better idea. Why not fnd a solution to avoid the unsightly process that inevitably happens over time in humid bathroom environments? Let that precious natural light ﬂood into the space, but why not frame it into a feature that reduces the ﬂow of humidity straight up to the hard to reach, cobwebbed corners of the skylight? Our homeowner tells us that her heart “smiles in delight” every time she enters that bathroom awash in soft, colorful light with no eight legged surprises. We supplied the framing and paneling, and our client cleverly covered the acrylic panels with the colors of her personality. See for yourself how a simple solution can simultaneously address functionality and add beauty.
That’s just one small sample to illuminate our attention to detail. Our clients can expect consistent eﬀorts to earn trust and respect. Furthermore, we endeavor to work only with subcontractors who exhibit the same level of exactitude that we would require in our own homes. We want our clients to invest their time and money with confidence, knowing that we strive to provide the highest quality craftsmanship at a fair price. That’s what you can expect when you entrust your remodeling needs to our team at UNIQ Interiors.
We invite you to stay tuned for future posts where we’ll share our UNIQ expertise through a lighthearted look into the world of construction and design.
