Chester Damico

FOUNDER

Chester gained years of experience in the carpentry industry, where he became a Master Carpenter. In 1964, he started his own Kitchen & Bath design, sales, & installation firm known as Fairmont Kitchen Center. Then in 1979 he had the foresight to start making his own cabinets. This is when he formed the parent company Mountaineer WoodCraft. The company grew from a local manufacturer to include a network of dealers in the Pittsburgh area. The retail side also continued to flourish under his leadership. In 2002 he retired, but still continues to oversee installations and has a hand in day to day operations. His attention to detail and craftsmanship have helped shape the company into what it is today.

Trudy is the daughter of Chester. After receiving her Bachelor’s Degree in Interior Design at West Virginia University, she joined Fairmont Kitchen Center in 1972. While learning the business from her father, she became the Senior Designer of the company. As her experience and understanding of the business grew, she decided to go back to school where she received her MBA from West Virginia University in 1990. She became President of the company in 2002 after her father retired. Mainly working from referrals, she has become known as an exceptional Kitchen & Bath Designer. With her years of experience, she has the ability to give the customers exactly what they have envisioned. In 2014 , she realized her dream of a new showroom, doubling the display area and moving the showroom to a more accessible space for her Morgantown and Clarksburg clients while maintaining her home town Fairmont clients and neighbors.  The new showroom allows her to show  how Fairmont Kitchen Center and Mountaineer Woodcraft together can create any type of cabinetry, for any space, in any design flavor  with complete confidence that the final product will give her client’s something they will be uniquely proud to have in their home.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

BRITTANY PARKS

Fairmont Kitchen Center is an A++ company. They transformed our small outdated kitchen into something modern and more productive. Our cabinet space doubled and we will never be able to go without built in spice racks again! The staff is awesome. Our needs were met every step of the way from the design process to the installation. I highly recommend Fairmont Kitchen Center!

Fairmont Kitchen helped me with the remodel of my family room. I purchased my hard wood floors, two different built-in custom cabinets as well as all the hardware and wallpaper. Both cabinets are beautiful custom pieces that fit my space perfectly. They have multiple stains, glass doors, crown mounding and lighting. Their designer, Trudy Anderson, was so knowledgeable and offered excellent suggestions. She did everything from come and measure at my home to bringing me different wallpaper options to coordinate with my furniture and draperies. I valued her opinion and was thrilled with the outcome of the project. Her team sent me multiple 3D versions of the space to help with the design process. All was done promptly and efficiently. Visiting their showroom was also extremely helpful. The variety of options that can been seen – from tile to different crown moldings – can be a bit overwhelming, but it also enables for complete customization of each piece. Lastly, the install crew provided excellent installation of my floor and cabinets. Each day they arrived promptly, worked diligently and left my home clean and livable through the project. I don’t know of anyone in this area that offers this type of quality product and excellent service – for so many pieces of the project – in one place. It’s a one stop shop for any of your home remodels.

Trudy and her team are detail oriented and driven to bring you the best service and product for your money. Trudy is an expert in kitchen design. She created a show-piece of a kitchen for our family and it is the center of our home. It is exactly what we wanted and needed.

Fairmont Kitchen Center just finished our kitchen last week. It is beautiful. The workers were so professional and polite. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. Trudy finished the job on time as promised. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

Fairmont Kitchen Center made our kitchen dreams come true. They were amazing with design and layout of cabinets. The storage for wine, spices, large trays, pots and pans were well planned. Their suggestions for materials for the bar area and backsplash were the icing on the cake! The cabinets are so beautiful and well-built. We are enjoying all the soft-close hinges on drawers and doors. We are so pleased with Fairmont Kitchen’s cabinets and designs.
