Restoration, Remodels, Additions, & New Construction
Kohanowicz Restoration is a licensed general Contractor offering historic home restoration, remodeling, additions and new construction in Yavapai, Coconino, and Gila Counties.
Founder Tim Elinski was born into a family of tradesmen, and soon realized he wished to explore his passion and began to work independently to hone his skills. In 1999 he took up a variety of trades and learned them well, broadening his ability to accomplish custom projects. In 2005 he applied for his Arizona Contractors License and has since been working as a General Contractor with the unique ability to perform the work traditionally subcontracted.
His refusal to be a “paper contractor”, but rather one that personally invests great care and attention on every project, has led to a satisfied customer base and a proud list of completed projects. A consummate professional, Tim brings pride to the building trades and bases his success solely on his customer’s satisfaction.
"Our house was in need of major remodeling, and so we looked for a contractor to do the work. We decided to hire Tim because we were familiar with his work and knew he had an honest reputation. Tim and his employees performed a variety of tasks with great skill and craftsmanship, including removing walls to increase our living space, new doors, a custom built tub, and a beautiful alder wood floor he milled himself. He turned our outdated 1950's home into a beautiful, modern space."
"The quality of his work is not only a reflection of craftsmanship and expertise but of the distinction of an artist. His professionalism is a reminder that chivalry in customer service and satisfaction is still alive."
"I am very impressed with Kohanowicz Restoration’s work on the tile shower in our home. Tim Elinski is an artistic master of tile work. He is truly a skilled craftsman combining well-honed construction expertise with creativity pursued with a steady passion for his work. My husband and I had a remarkable and positive experience working with Tim. I never get tired of looking at the masterpiece that he created for us."
"I've been more than satisfied on all of the occasions Tim Elinski has done work on my home-- whether it was the new windows, a new tile surround for my shower, a new roof for an existing Laundry Room addition, or the complete re-stabilization of the basement supports for my vintage house-- each and every time, Tim was on time, clean, courteous and more than competent.
In today's world, when you're lucky enough to even get a phone call returned, Mr. Elinski not only shows up-- on time-- but he gets the job done quickly, on budget (with no surprises), with a friendly manner and a professional attitude. I feel very fortunate to have been able to meet Tim Elinski and to have him work on all of the various projects on my house which have made it safer and more comfortable, while increasing the value."
"We LOVE our bathroom! It is a joy every time we go in there! Our house was built in 1919 so when Tim completely remodeled it in 2011, old-time craftsmanship was of paramount concern for us. What was so extraordinary besides the highest level of skill was that Tim did it all himself: carpentry, painting, flooring, tile work, etc. We would emphatically recommend Tim to anyone who wants quality work done. This is what America used to be all about and Tim is still doing it. By the way, as artisans ourselves, we can be pretty picky but it's without reservation that we can say 'Tim is your man.'"
"Our bathroom was an extreme remodel. Mr. Elinski drew the design and helped me choose the material. He did not exceed the project budget and finished the job in a very timely fashion. He always left the work area tidy and was extremely considerate of our schedule. I am more than happy with this bathroom-- now it is my favorite room in the house!"
"I own property and a business in the Verde Valley and I have used Tim to complete a variety of jobs for me on all my properties. Tim has an exceptional eye for detail, always finishes the job on time and on budget and he has a mastery of a variety of skills. I first hired Tim for a restoration effort on the Sullivan Apartment building. I was impressed with his ability to see all the things that needed to be done, how to organize the entire project to make sure it was finished on time and at cost. I felt confident in his abilities, and was not disappointed."
Kohanowicz Restoration has completed a variety of custom projects ranging in size from small remodels to large additions and new construction. Unlike other General Contractors, Tim chooses to work independently. This allows more control of the project, and a better realization of the client’s vision.
Kohanowicz Restoration maintains a very close working relationship with its clients and ensures a seamless project and satisfied customers. Unparalleled in quality and passion for the building trades, Kohanowicz Restoration is the best choice for your next project if you value trust, confidence, and accountability.
