The kitchen is the center of your facility where you prepare gourmet meals or entertain. Today’s kitchen meets many needs, adjusting and growing with your changing lifestyle. One Way can customize a large-scale kitchen renovation, expansion or facelift to suit your particular vision. We’ll help you design a spacious new layout, create more functionality in your existing space, and choose eye-catching tile and hardware to create a fresh new look. We have experience in a variety of kitchens from residential homes, to large restaurants, to commercial kitchens designed to feed hundreds of residents.
One Way has the design and construction expertise to beautifully renovate your kitchen, whatever the size of your project. Here are a few ideas:
Giving your kitchen a “facelift” can make a dramatic difference in how your space looks and feels. Replacing old, damaged countertops, adding stone tile, and updating lighting choices are easy ways to give your kitchen a new look without the cost of a full-scale remodel.
Reconfiguring and remodeling your kitchen can create space and functionality you never realized you had. Installing finely crafted custom cabinetry will transform your kitchen’s usability and beauty, while changing the layout of appliances, sinks and shelving will make cooking and cleanup infinitely easier.
A kitchen expansion adds space to meet your changing needs or growing family. Whether it’s accommodating wheelchairs or mobility aids in your kitchen or adding pantry space and storage, expanding your kitchen provides a wealth of options to transform your cooking and living space. From hand-crafted cabinets to cooking islands and breakfast nooks, the possibilities are practically limitless.
Renovating your bath space can stylishly update your home and create a relaxing spa-like retreat. One Way will help you design a beautiful and luxurious bath area, add new features and fixtures, and turn even a utilitarian powder room into an impressive show feature. Your bathroom will be a highly functional and stunning space that adds to your living area and your home’s value.
Stylish features we’ll incorporate into your new bath include above-the-counter sinks, custom cabinetry, stone tiling, hand-painted sinks and contemporary color schemes. We can add space to include jetted spa tubs, dual sinks and showers, and coordinated bathroom furniture to complete your new look. With One Way, the possibilities for crafting your bath sanctuary are limitless.
Painting: Interior and Exterior
A fresh coat of paint will protect your facility or home's exterior and beautify the interior, and add to your real estate value and sale ability.
One Way meticulously cleans, removes old paint and prepares siding and wall surfaces to ensure a beautiful finish. We use the highest quality application tools, primer and paint to give your facility or home long-lasting paint coverage. You’ll find clean, straight edging, but never a speck of paint on trim or molding. One Way ensures all floors, furniture, outdoor plantings and surfaces are fully protected so the paint stays where it belongs.
Whether it’s finishing a new government, commercial or residential space, or repainting a cherished family home, One Way will provide superior painting services to protect your valuable real estate investment.
One Way is certified by the Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a Lead Safe Renovator Repair Painting contractor.
Massachusetts law requires lead paint in houses built before 1978 to be removed or covered if children under six years are living in the home. If you’re a residential homeowner or the owner of rental housing, it’s imperative that you protect children from the dangerous effects of lead exposure. One Way will safely manage the removal or containment of lead paint on your property, ensuring adults and children don’t suffer the life-threatening ailments that can result from lead exposure.
We employ a variety of lead removal techniques, including heat scraping, chemical and mechanical procedures. Each process incorporates safety controls to prevent the spread of lead fumes or dust, and One Way disposes of lead paint and waste in full accordance with state and federal laws. When less costly lead paint containment is appropriate, we use encapsulating coatings to cover exterior and interior surfaces. Whatever the extent of your lead issue, One Way will protect your property and your health.

Home Theatre and Multi-Room Audio
We'll automate every component of your home entertainment system, from one-touch control of the projector movie screen to customized audio features in every room of your house.

Access movies and music from a variety of media, including CDs, DVDs, Blu-ray Disc™ or iPod®. Stream directly from the Internet using your iMac® or Windows computer. And if the kids' hip-hop music is interrupting your family room's home theatre ambience, turn down their volume without ever leaving the couch.
Safety and Security
Keep an eye on your house – and on your kids – from the office or your favorite vacation retreat. Monitor security cameras live from your iPhone or Android SmartPhone and receive text messages to let you know when the security system has been triggered or a door's been opened. Ward off would-be intruders by programming the lights to cycle on and off when you're away, and create temporary security codes for repair and service workers to access your house, or for friends the next time they use your ski condo.
Solar Panel Installation
Installing photovoltaic solar panels on your residential or commercial building is a great way to reduce your energy costs, lock in your electrical rates and qualify for generous incentives from the federal and Massachusetts state government. Whether you want to save money on your home electrical expenses or operate your commercial space at maximum efficiency, solar panels are an easy and environmentally friendly solution.
Fully qualified as photovoltaic (PV) installers, One Way will educate you about your solar panel choices, evaluate your roof and building structure, and handle every phase of the installation. While solar panel systems are typically mounted directly on the roof, we’ll assess your roof space and recommend alternate installation areas if they’re more appropriate. Our highly qualified licensed electrician will appraise your electrical system and recommend any necessary repairs or upgrades to accommodate the PV installation.
Solar panels offer free energy from the sun, using crystalline PV cells that convert sunlight into power. Once the solar energy is converted into power for your home or commercial building, unused power flows back to the local utility grid. This means you can sell your excess energy back to the utility company. Massachusetts is one of several dozen states that has a "net metering" law that states the utilities *must* buy your excess electricity from you at full market prices. In addition to this money-making opportunity, One Way can help you source new government financial incentives for installing energy-saving solar panels. Solar panels are an exciting option for meeting your electrical needs and saving money, so call us to find out how you can take advantage of this win-win opportunity.
