What People are Saying

“Our expectations were overwhelmingly exceeded

“From the initial meeting everything regarding the renovation and timeline was clearly explained so we could understand it. Joe, was at every meeting with the subcontractors at our home and there were times that he and his team were working without us being there which was never a concern.

Joe worked with us on our design to give us the kitchen we wanted and managed the renovation process to honor his time commitment of the completion date!

Our expectations were overwhelmingly exceeded by Meridian and couldn’t be happier with our new kitchen. We have already recommended Meridian to our friends and neighbors and will be contacting Joe for our next project!”

-Tracy & Shannon, Charlotte, NC (October 2017)

“Effectively communicates”

“I am getting started on my whole house remodel. Meridian DesignBuild has been super to work with. Joe Balich listens and effectively communicates with me on all aspects of project progression. His skill sets are very good with regard to framing and design ideas. Joe stays aware and is concerned with costs of any additional projects costs over the initial estimate. He has trust worthy and skilled subcontractors working with him… I am very pleased to have chosen Meridian DesignBuild for my project.”

-Fay, Charlotte, NC (November, 2016)

“On time and within budget

“… [After previous builder’s passing] we were at a loss. Joe immediately put our minds at ease. He corrected mistakes that had already been made on the project and then improved our home in ways we never would have asked all on time and within budget.”

– Brandon and Sherri, Midland, NC

“Punctual, Professional, and Personable”

“We contacted Meridian to help design and build a kitchen, mud room, master bedroom and bathroom on our farmhouse. His pricing was fair and the work impeccable! Any issues that arose, Joe and his team was responsive and quick to offer solutions. His team was punctual, professional, and personable. We were elated with the addition so naturally we contacted him to gut the old bathroom and turn it into two rooms. The designing aspect Is a huge savings since we did not need an architect. Additionally, Joe understands how to incorporate the old structure with new and make it seamless! Joe is a man of his word and bar none the best Contractor in the business. If you want an honest, reliable, General Contractor with integrity and a passion to get the job done right, you should call Meridian Design Build!.”

–Kristine, Charlotte, NC


“An honest trader”

“We are finishing up a total kitchen renovation which has led to additional renovation and updates throughout our home. We vetted over 15 contractors and as a result of our due diligence we chose Joe Balich of Meridian Design Build and we are extremely glad that we did. Joe presented himself right out of the box as head and shoulders above his peers, walking us through every aspect of what a professional and properly credentialed contractor looks like, in addition to how they should operate. Joe presented a fair price with many things included that other contractors charge additional for. Most of all he stuck to his price, pulled all permits, has not cut corners and did not nickel and dime us. He took care of our home by encapsulating our kitchen to hold down the dust and he put down rubber mats to protect our floors. He is an excellent communicator and as a result you know what is going on at all times. Joe has taken great pride in making sure that the train runs on schedule and all of his subs have been professional and courteous. Most of all Joe is an honest trader and we are extremely pleased with the workmanship Joe and his crews have provided which has resulted in a total transformation of our home. I highly recommend Joe Balich, whether you are putting on a second story, adding a room to your home or doing a kitchen or bath renovation. At the end of the day, you always get what you pay for. I can honestly say with Joe Balich and Meridian Design Build that we have received more that we paid for and he has far exceeded our expectations. He would be a very good choice for your consideration”

“A five star performance”

“I needed a master bath remodel. After receiving two outrageously high estimates I asked Meridian DesignBuild to quote the job. The quote was more in line with my target but left room for me to make upgrades and still meet my budget. I was directed to various vendors to make my cabinet, granite, floor tile and fixture selections. This process was very smooth. Once selections were made and lead times were understood the project timeline was set. I had a hard stop date due to other circumstances in my life but Meridian compressed their timeline to accommodate my needs. Before the start date, the lead worker was brought to my home to meet me and survey the work area. Once the job started the workers took exceptional precautions to protect the rest of my home from the impact of the work. The lead worker kept me informed of the progress and the plan. Each afternoon I was informed of the what time the workers would arrive the next day and what they planned to accomplish. They were on the job site every day until the room was fully prepared. As the ordered equipment began to arrive I was kept informed of the schedule while Meridian coordinated the deliveries and installations. The completed project was exactly as we agreed. The workmanship was excellent. This was a 5-star performance by Meridian DesignBuild.”

-Ken, Charlotte, NC (April, 2017)

Up-front professionalism”

“This honest, up-front professionalism makes [Meridian] a pleasure to do business with, both personally and professionally.”

–Fay Hodges, Charlotte, NC

“I got everything I wanted”

“…[Joe] knew what was important to us and he helped us to get all the things that were important to us. I can honestly say I got everything I wanted.”

–Lorne and Monica, Mint Hill, NC

“Meridian and Joe Balich far exceeded my expectations! ”

Meridian and Joe Balich far exceeded my expectations! We retained Meridian to add a full bedroom/bath suite to our home. The suite would be used as an art studio most of the time so we had needs particular to that function.

Joe and his team worked with us to deliver great quality, met a very tight timeframe and was on budget! Joe was great to work with, keeping us informed, explaining options and finding the best solution at a cost that worked for us. He actually had higher standards for the work than I did! After a prior bad experience with another contractor, it was great to work with someone who was so professional and personable. We love the beautiful space we have now! I’d hire Joe again and recommend Meridian highly.

–Bob, Charlotte, NC

“Puts your interests first”

“I recommend Meridian DesignBuild to anyone who wants a builder/contractor that puts your interests first and that brings the highest professional qualifications to your project. I have known Meridian’s President, Joe Balich, for more than 20 years. Over that time, he has continually refined his competence and developed a sense of aesthetic design that elevates Meridian above and beyond his competitors. More importantly, Joe and Meridian have demonstrated a capacity to listen to clients, to interpret their style preferences and overarching goals into practical build-out solutions, and to achieve those ends while still staying within their clients’ budgets.”

-Richard and Roberta, Chapel Hill, NC (July, 2016)

“You care about us

“We are so happy to have you [Joe] as our contractor. You are very diligent and keep us abreast of schedules, design ideas, etc. Thank you so much for the way you care about us and guide us through the process. No complaints- only expectations of a wonderful job done.”

-Hank and Pam, Mint Hill, NC (July, 2016)
