Review by in Mentor, OH
Joey, Ray, Dave, and Charla made the process extremely comfortable. They helped in all areas with respect to design, color, and execution. They made us feel like a part of the family, and they were always there to answer our questions. I am completely satisfied. Congratulations to them to a job well done.

Let me start off by saying that this review is based on my experience only and may not reflect on the company as a whole. What experience I had may not be the same for someone else. It is of my opinion based on my personal experience in conducting business with them involving over $100,000+ of my own money, that Transitions by Firenza (TBF) and their Vice President Joseph (Joey) Mannarino (public information link: https://www5.sos.state.oh.us/ords/f?p=100:2:::NO:RP::) engaged in questionable business practices against me that may be protected under the Consumer Protection Laws of Ohio. As a consumer, I cannot recommend their services and should have done due diligence before going under contract with them to remodel my home. I should've read BBB complaints (which can be found here: https://www.bbb.org/cleveland/business-reviews/countertops/firenza-stone-inc-in-willoughby-oh-16006598/reviews-and-complaints?section=complaints) and the complaint-reviews (which can be found under the Firenza Stone Google Business Review page online. I should've also checked Lake County Court Records for court record history (which can be done here publicly online: http://phoenix.lakecountyohio.gov/eservices/home.page.2) and the Cuyahoga County Court Records (which can be done here publicly online: https://cpdocket.cp.cuyahogacounty.us/ ) and the Summit County Court Records (which can be done here publicly online: https://clerkweb.summitoh.net/PublicSite/SearchByName.aspx). Brief Summary: I found them on Home Advisor and met with Joey Mannarino at my home to discuss the remodel of my home. We agreed on a $130,000 remodel budget including his $15,000 project management fee. I asked for a contract, he told me they normally don't do contracts and sent me an invoice instead. I hired an attorney to draft up a proper remodel construction contract with a $130,000 max limit, and the time schedule we agreed to. I paid those legal fees out-of-my-own-pocket to protect myself. At the advisement of legal counsel, I also hired an Owner's Representative to supervise Joey who was to supervise my remodel, since I lived out of state at the time. Paying someone to supervise a remodel, and then paying someone else to supervise that person to supervise the remodel, sounds a bit much right? In the end, I felt very thankful I followed my instincts. By the time I fired TBF / Joey, the project was only 75% completed, the deadline way past due, and the costs were enormously high at ~$155,000 (suppose to be 100% completion at $130,000). They ignored my emails to get my approval for costs going beyond the contract max, kept doing work, and billing me outrageous rates. Their invoices never broke down labor hour/rate, but was a summary of charges for the week. He made so many mistakes including designing my cabinetry without my approval! His methods in collecting payment: First, he tried to collect more money than was billed. I had to remind his bookkeeper that I only pay for wo

Joey, Ray and their entire team are absolutely the best. If you are looking to do any kind of a remodel in NE Ohio, you owe it to yourself to reach out to them . From the initial design to doing the actual work, they are the most professional and helpful. If you are looking for a WOW design and great workmanship, these folks are amazing. We are so impressed with how our kitchen came out that we are going to use them again for redoing our master bathroom as well as adding on another bathroom to our home.

They always arrived on time and made sure I didn't over spend. That's refreshing.

Review by in Newbury, OH
We desperately needed the main bathroom in our home upgraded but had no idea what or how to do it. Contacted Transitions and arranged for Joey and Ray to come look at it. Loved their ideas, went to the showroom to pick out the cabinet style, countertop, etc then left the rest to them. The professionalism, courtesy and good humor of everyone from the showroom to the contractors who came and did the work was superior and made the experience less stressful. Sharla was always available to answer questions. The quality of the workmanship was also extraordinary! Dan and his crew of very talented craftsmen made this project a joy. I absolutely love my new bathroom and have been recommending Transitions by Firenza to friends and family. They are a top-notch group!

Review by in Hudson, OH
We hired this firm for complete kitchen and laundry room renovations as well as installation of hardwood floors throughout most of the main floor. Designer was extremely helpful in incorprorating our wish list into a cohesive, practical and aesthetically pleasing design. Joe Mannarino did a great job managing the project and keeping things moving forward. We love the quality of the materials used, found most of the subs to provide superb service, and think the final result is stunning. The project also came in extremely close to budget.

Review by in Mentor, OH
I recently had both my kitchen and bathroom remodeled by Transitions. I have never tackled a home improvement project of this size, but Joey, Dan and Company made it easy. From those who work in the office, to the designers, to those who manage and create the new environment, the Transitions employees are top-notch. Work was scheduled and accomplished in a timely manner. If there was a problem, it was handled very quickly and professionally. I am extremely pleased with every aspect of this project and plan on asking them to help with some smaller projects in the future. My heartfelt thanks to all involved.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
