Jo Ann was great! Redid my kitchen and got my countertops and backsplash from Surface in Westport. They did an amazing job. Jo Ann was extremely helpful. She talked me through the process and helped me pick the best option. The installation was meticulous and the whole experience was great. I highly recommend them!

Beautiful showroom and design experience working with Jo Ann from Surface. Just completed a renovation with guidance on paint plan, kitchen refresh with new granite counters, updated bathroom and new granite fireplace. Jo Ann helped make our vision come to reality!

Jo Ann is amazing! I had the best experience. She took the time to really listen to what I wanted, and then she exceeded my highest expectations. I love that Surface is “one stop” for everything. It takes the stress out of the design and installation process — and the prices are very competitive!

We just completed a renovation of our master bathroom. Jo Ann at Surface helped us with the countertop, lighting, paint color and even the arrangement of the tiles on the walls She was a pleasure to work with and was aways available to meet with us after hours to accomodate our schedules. She was also very responsive to our calls, texts and emails. Overall we had an excellent experience with Surface and Jo Ann.

Jo Ann has an outstanding eye for design, color and finishes. Equally as important she is a pleasure to work with and is extremely diligent and responsive. I can't speak highly enough of Jo Ann and can't wait to use her in the future

I have consulted with Jo Ann for many years on stone work, tile, lighting, wallpaper, color and overall design and her insights on all are excellent. Her knowledge of color is outstanding! I have used Surface for countertops and tile in our homes and couldn’t be happier with the results. The installation by The Stone Workshop, overseen by Daniel and Mario was perfect. The Surface showroom exhibits what great design is all about!
