Testimonials

"We had a bad experience with a prior contractor who worked on our master bathroom and other areas in our house. The experience was so bad that it took us 6 years before we decided to remodel our bathroom. We found Manning Remodeling and Construction on Angie's list and decided to call him for an estimate. His business address is in the same city we live in, which we thought was very convenient. Rick was early for the appointment and listened to what we wanted to do with the bathroom. He was very nice and professional and offered suggestions but never tried to talk us out of tiling the bathroom walls. Rick sent us an estimate which we thought was fair and we accepted his offer in December. We purchased the tile, vanities and faucets (separate from the estimate) prior to the start of the remodeling. Because of the holidays, work didn't start until January 7th. The whole remodeling took a little over 2 weeks. Rick and his associates were great. The crew showed up for work early in the morning and did not leave until early evening. They even worked a whole weekend so they could finish the tile work. What we really liked was that everyone was very friendly, respected our property, cleaned up every day before they left and worked around a very nosy cat who thought he was part of the crew. Rick came by every day to check on the progress of the bathroom and if we had any problems or changes, we could talk to him at that time. We thought this was great because our last contractor never came by to look at the mess his crew created-even when we called him. Our bathroom is finished and it turned out better than we expected. As with any project there were a few minor problems after the bathroom was finished. Rick made sure that the problems were corrected to our satisfaction. We plan to remodel our kitchen in the near future and plan to call Rick Manning back to do the job."

Growing up, I looked forward to the weekends because I got to go to work with my dad, a custom homebuilder.  I never knew it while I was tagging along, but I was  learning from the best!  As a teenager, I got power tools on birthdays and holidays…and if that wasn’t weird enough, I loved it!  My tools, especially those handed down from my dad, were my pride and joy – and I always looked for ways to use them.​

For my first career, however, I chose Quality Assurance and Operations.  In all, I spent almost 20 years in the defense, telecom, and industrial manufacturing industries as a quality professional – the majority of those years in Quality Management…all right here in the DFW area where I grew up.​

In the aftermath of 9-11 in 2001, my Boston-based employer closed all Texas operations – and it was a no-brainer, Manning Remodeling + Construction, Inc. was born in February 2002.  For a time, I did go back to the corporate world for another Directors position in Quality Assurance & Operations, but MRC remained a part-time operation and full-time passion.  So it wasn’t long before the corporate world and I split for good…and M.R.C. was resurrected in June of 2009.   ​

So what’s the biggest difference between me and the other guys?  1st class professionalism and customer service from my corporate training and background along with my personal principles on quality and attention to detail are all a big part of my work – but above all, I simply enjoy what I do, and it shows!  It’s true what they say; “Find a job you love, and you won’t work a day in your life!”​
