“Ken was the most efficient and dependable provider that I have used thru Angie’s List. The price was great, the service was second to none. Changed out all hardware from brass to oil rubbed bronze and it looked fantastic. He had one thing to adjust and came back and took care of it immediately. Thanks Ken”  John O – Fort Mill, SC

“Ken’s customer service was fabulous.  He consistently stayed in touch, was always punctual and made this “deal” with it!  It is a pity that Angie’s List doesn’t always have such good service providers.”  Usha G – Charlotte, NC

“Modern Hardware and Decor did a fantastic job, and the hardware change throughout our home made our 10 year old home feel new again.”  Todd K – Huntersville, NC

“Replaced all our old gold hardware on the doors with nickel finish hardware.  Excellent service from beginning to end. On time, respected my time did what he said he was going to do and communicated effectively.” Chris C – Huntersville, NC

“Installed new door knobs, hinges and door stoppers on all doors (front door, bedroom doors, closet doors, etc…) in my house.  Ken is very professional and trustworthy.  He did a very good job for us and although he was busy and thought it would be a month out before he could complete the install, I asked if he could at least do the 3 keyed entries sooner since we had just moved into a new house and still using the previous owner’s keys.  Ken was very understanding and came out within a day to install the 3 keyed entries first.  We were very appreciative.”  Justin G – Ballantyne / Charlotte, NC

“Ken came out to the house with a selection of hardware.  He was up front with me around the cost vs. quality of the different choices.  He detailed every piece of hardware that needed to be replaced.  He was very thorough, and you could see how he came up with the price.  Ken came out with someone else to replace everything.  They were both very professional.  We are happy with the new hardware, and I would recommend them.”  Robin L – Tega Cay / Fort Mill, SC

“Ken replaced all the hardware throughout our home and the results are amazing; it has made a huge difference!  Ken was fantastic to work with!  From his initial quick response to our request for a proposal to the final knob replacement, he was professional, efficient and very knowledgeable.  It was a pleasure to do business with Ken and would highly recommend him to anyone considering this type of work.”  Sherry A – Fort Mill, SC

“We replaced all door knobs, hinges, strike plates, etc. in the house including the keyed entryways.  We could not be more pleased with the process and the outcome.  It was exactly what we were looking for.  Ken responded to my emails quickly.  We setup a date to review hardware choices and to inventory our doors.  The evening following the hardware review, Ken sent us an estimate as promised.  We agreed to an install date and time.  They showed up on time and were done in several hours.  They were very professional, cleaned up and they even adjusted doors that we’re sticking before they arrived.”  Chris R – Davidson, NC

“Provided & installed new hardware on all of our doors both inside and out.  Very professional and courteous”  Jennifer G – Matthews, NC

“Modern Hardware and Décor replaced gold hinges, doorstops and latches on every door in the house with brushed nickel hinges.  Ken was very professional, timely and knowledgeable.  He worked meticulously and cleaned up everything.  He was able to determine the finish we needed to order, so that it would match the doorknobs which had already been replaced with an updated satin nickel finish.  He gave input on using door stops based on the different door configurations – some at the baseboard, some extending from the door hinge itself.  He worked to make sure all the doors opened/closed fluidly and took extra time on the entrance doors.  He walked me through inspecting every door when he was finished and all was good.  The only minor delay was that the product was on backorder, so the install lagged the estimate by a few weeks but Ken promptly called us when he received the materials to schedule an install.  He was here for a full day and I even felt comfortable leaving him here alone for a short period.  Also, the manufacturer sent one item in the incorrect finish.  Ken pointed this out, and asked if we wanted to re-order or install anyway.  It was such a minor difference that we had him install it anyway, but was very nice that he gave me the option.”  Kristie B – Providence Plantation – Charlotte, NC

“We just bought a 17 year old house and everything is amazing about it except the outdated hardware.  I was nervous about picking the style and the finish  to update my home.  Ken Martone of Modern Hardware and Decor made it soeasy.  He was very patient in answering all my questions and it only took two interactions to complete the process.  Ken was flexible in his schedule and on time for both appointments.  He gave us a good variety of options and helped us think through the choices.  We have MANY, MANY doors in our home and he changed out the hardware quickly and neatly.  Ken is a complete professional with a good product, I would recommend him to anyone.”  Scott T – Charlotte, NC

“Changed out 21 door knobs, hinges & door stops from dated brass to sleek, updated satin brushed nickel.  Everything went very smoothly.  Ken was great to work with.  I’m very pleased with end result.”  Pamela O – Charlotte, NC

“He changed out all the door knobs, hinges and even put in new door stops.  Installed new dead bolts on two doors.  Was very professional and patient since I had a 2 year old who kept trying to see what he was doing.  Was on time and did the job quickly.  It looks great.  Will be using him again later this year to finish out some other doors.  Love how it looks would definitely recommend them.”  Sonya S – Monroe, NC

“Ken changed out door hardware (knobs, hinges & doorstops) throughout our home, including deadbolts, keyed entries, etc.  The process could not have gone any better.  Ken was on time, easy to work with, organized, neat, and offered useful suggestions (if asked).  He completed the work in the timeframe promised (1 day).  He is friendly and professional.  He hauled away all our old hardware (that was nice that I did not have to deal with that).  One unexpected bonus:  before, some of our doors were hard to open, the door rubbed the frame & they ‘stuck’ a little.  Using the new hardware, Ken was able to correct all that.  Last, he took the time to walk through the house with me to make sure everything worked properly.   We will definitely use him again.  Do not hesitate, call him.”  Sharon D – Providence Country Club / Charlotte, NC

“I contacted Ken Martone, owner and he “answers his phone”.  I had brass plated hardware, finish was coming off, and  I wanted to update it.  We set up an appointment and Ken responded very quickly and came out with samples for me to make a selection.  It is an option to go elsewhere and buy your hardware if you prefer, however, he has boards with nice examples, and he assisted me in selecting my finish which made everything very easy.  Waiting time for the order to come in was short and once received, he came out the next day with his helper and did a total installation in one day.  There was a some drilling, and adjusting each door to fit, but clean up was excellent, and he was very meticulous and careful with the walls and doors.  After hearing such raving compliments from my neighbors, that had used his services, I already had a lot of confidence that the job would be done right.  But I would be remiss not to mention that when Ken is not installing door hardware, he is protecting his community as a firefighter.  His loyalty and courage shines through for that job brighter than the door knobs.  Thank you Ken, I love my new door hardware!”  Patsy J – Piper Glen / Charlotte, NC

“They switched out all our fixtures and handles throughout the whole house.  We went from a gold finish to a brushed nickel finish.  It took two installers about a day to complete the job.  They were punctual and Ken was great to deal with.  They had a good selection of fixture to choose from and I would recommend their services to others.”  Clare J – Charlotte, NC

“They replaced all the balusters on our stairwell to wrought iron.  They also changed out all the door knobs, door hinges and hardware to an antique bronze finish.  It took two approximately two daysto complete the work.  Ken had perfect communication, follow-up and was very professional.  I had shopped around and found them to have very competitive prices.  He takes his work very seriously and is more reliable and responsive than your average contractor.  If he were a full-time contractor I would use him for everything.”   Meredith B- Charlotte, NC

“He did a great job; we’re very pleased with the new look. Liked how he brought samples to the house.”  Creighton B – Charlotte, NC

“Hello, Ken was great. He knows exactly what he is doing, does a neat and complete job. His pricing was fair and honest. I would recommend him. We changed out the brass for dark old world bronze, amazing.. Thank you Ken.”  Valerie P – Lake Norman / Denver, NC

“I highly recommend Ken Martone and his company Modern Hardware and Decor.  As we were preparing our home for sale, one of my projects was to replace all of the brass door hardware.  I have a friend who is a builder and he recommended a company.  I also saw an add from Ken’s company.  I brought them both in for estimates and Ken’s company was less.  Ken was very easy to work with, personable and professional.  He completed the job quickly and the end result was great.  It made a huge difference in the appearance of our home.”   Elizabeth S – Ballantyne / Charlotte, NC

“Our new updated door hardware has transformed our house from outdated gold to “new house” aged bronze.  Ken with Modern Hardware gently guided us through the wide variety available to choose just the right hardware for our house.  Ken was highly professional from start-to-finish on scheduling, meeting timing expectations and installation.   I would use Ken & Modern Hardware again & again.  Too bad he is not in other businesses that we use!   MODERN HARDWARE AND DECOR IS THE ONLY COMPANY TO USE FOR DOOR HARDWARE!!!!! ”    Tom & Vivian L – Piper Glen / Charlotte, NC

“Don’t wait another minute to call Ken at Modern Hardware and Decor and upgrade your entire home! Ken was friendly, professional and extremely punctual. The initial consultation happened the day after my first call, and we had new door knobs throughout our entire house just a week later. The prices were very competitive and the entire installation took just a few hours. Ken even came back the next day to help with an unrelated task. We couldn’t be happier with the service or the product. Call today, you won’t be sorry!”  Jeremy & Lauren H – Charlotte, NC

“We recently used Modern Hardware and Decor to replace our downstairs hardware. We were so impressed with Ken’s work.  His prices were very reasonable and we found it to be an inexpensive way to update our home.  Ken’s work is very professional and he is very knowledgeable in this area which was helpful in selecting our hardware.  We would definitely use him again!”  Nicole D – Charlotte, NC

“Ken removed all of our old brass (builder grade) hardware on our interior and exterior doors.  This included removing all doorknobs, hinges, doorstops, dead bolts, front entry kick-plate, handle, door-knocker, etc.  The process involved two appointments only.  First appointment included Ken obtaining the estimate by walking the house and counting all of the knobs, hinges, etc that he needed to order.  At the same appointment, we selected (from the variety of hardware he brought with him, which was nicely mounted/displayed) the finish and style of hardware we wanted to use.  The second appointment was the day of installation.  From the beginning, Ken was very professional, friendly, courteous and knowledgeable about the work that needed to be done. Ken arrived on time for our initial appointment (to obtain estimate and select hardware). He was not pushy at all, nor did he make us feel rushed (when trying to decide on the finish and style of our hardware).  Our kids were running around and he was patient amongst all of that chaos! He knew exactly which styles and colors would work best with our home and made suggestions accordingly.  He also helped us with selecting our hardware based upon our lifestyle/functionality.  His knowledge of the inventory of hardware available from various manufacturers was very helpful.  His products are very high quality and are durable.  The first appointment took about an hour and a half (we asked a lot of questions, so it probably ran longer than average).  After our first appointment, we waited a few weeks before deciding.  The day after our first appointment (talk about a quick turnaround!), we received a courteous follow-up e-mail and estimate.  The estimate was very clear and easy to understand.  In the interim, I asked a few questions, made a few changes and he e-mailed me back immediately and changes were a non-issue.  I appreciated not being nagged for days and weeks after the initial appointment. Once we signed the contract, we paid the initial deposit (so that the hardware could be ordered).  It took about 2-3 weeks from the contract signing to the install date.  We set an install date, once the contract was signed, a few days before, Ken confirmed the appointment and arrived on time on the day of install.  He arrived at 8:30am and worked diligently all day. It took him until 7:00pm to complete the job.  He was very organized with his equipment, setting up and did not make any messes.  He brought his own little shop vac to clean up any small shavings that may have come from installation.  He did not take any lunch break or any other breaks during the entire time.  Our kids, again, were running around but he was kind to them, answered their many questions and continued his work, all the while!  We are in lust with our new door hardware!  Ken’s professional workmanship, knowledge of the products and installation exceeded our expectations.  Ken is a pleasure to have in our home and his patience with our boys running around was much appreciated.  He is meticulous, not only about the installation, but also with the process.  This small upgrade has made a HUGE impact on our 10 year old home.  Everything was installed with accurate detail and I was pleased, since I am very meticulous and picky about the details.  I also felt that he was trustworthy and felt comfortable with him in our home.  One piece was sent, in error by the manufacturer, so he will be back to install that shortly.  We love how everything looks.  All of the doors and locks are functional. We would highly recommend Ken Martone to others.  My only regret is not having our hardware replaced sooner!”  Katharine & Bill – Wesley Chapel, NC

“What a huge difference new door knobs and hinges made to our home!!  The transformation is breathtaking!  The ease of which the process of having Ken replace the knobs and hinges was incredible.  Ken was a true professional and without a doubt calling Modern Hardware and Decor was the best decision we made when updating our home. ”  Lisa & Robert G – Charlotte, NC

“Modern Hardware and Décor provided excellent service with a high degree of workmanship and professionalism.  From the initial estimate to the completion of the work, Ken always did what he said that he would do in a timely fashion.  We could not be happier with the results and would not hesitant to recommend Ken to others.  The transformation of the hardware, for the doors of our home, is beautiful!”  Rich & Phyllis – Indian Trail, NC

There’s an expression that says “If you want something done right, do it yourself.”  Well, that might be true for some things, but when it comes to changing out your door knobs, hinges and other hardware my experience is, “If you want to have it done right, call Ken at Modern Hardware and Decor!” I have to admit that I am a rather picky person when it comes to hiring people to do work around my house.  So when I say that Ken at Modern Hardware and Decor is great, you can take my word for it. – Ken is high quality and a very fair price.    Leslie Goldfarb – Southpark / Charlotte NC

“Ken, thanks for doing a great job changing out the door hardware.  You did a great job and the nice thing you also did was you cleaned up after you completed the installation.  You worked from the time you came in a very orderly manner and when you left the house I did not have to do any cleaning.  In fact it was just like that the hardware had not been touched except I could not see the gold hardware any more.  Thanks so much for a job well done. I will certainly recommend you to anyone I know that would like to have their door hardware changed.”  Wanda M – Charlotte, NC

“I cannot thank Ken enough, for his close attention to detail and his perfectionistic work ethic in transforming all of the door hardware in our house. The job was done on time and on budget and with complete satisfaction. Thanks again for a job well done.”   Barry M – Marvin, NC

“I wanted to thank you again for all your help in replacing the locks on my front doors.   I did the touch-up painting yesterday and they really look great from the street.  If I ever need any more hardware work done I will be sure to call you.   You did a great job with the whole project as I had been trying to get this accomplished for about two years now and could not find anyone to help me find replacements without having to replace the doors.”  Ione H – Charlotte, NC
