Yes, we charge a design fee for full room remodels. Our team of experienced designers dedicate a great deal of time and thought to ensuring that all materials are thoughtfully selected, industry guidelines are met, and your space is fully functional. The amount varies according to the type, size, and complexity of the project; simple updates such as a flooring installation or tile backsplash may not require a design fee.
Of course! It needs to be determined first that we are a good fit for your project. We offer free consultations in order to assess your needs, develop an initial plan, and discuss your budget.
We offer a wide range of materials for purchase at competitive pricing, from a full set of cabinets to DIY-friendly flooring options. Our staff is always on hand to discuss your project and make recommendations.

The cost of your project will depend on many factors, including the amount of labor required and the cost of materials selected. Once we have discussed your needs and budget, an estimate will be provided to help you determine how you would like to move forward.
We ask for a retainer after a design and budget plan has been presented and you feel comfortable partnering with us on your remodel. At that point, your designer will fine-tune until every detail of your design is just the way you want it. Once the scope of work and pricing have been finalized, we require a 50% deposit to get your project on the construction schedule and begin ordering materials.

? We understand that remodels can be pricey. Our designers are happy to suggest lower-cost alternatives to items that may push your project over budget. Remember – a remodel isn’t an expense, but an investment that you’ll live in and enjoy for years to come. Carefully consider your budget, as well as the compromises that you would be willing (or not willing) to make.

Remodeling your home will not be the easiest thing you’ve done, but it will be worth it! You will be living in a construction zone, so planning ahead is important.

Once your project has been finalized and a contract has been signed, your project file is passed on to our ordering and review department, where material orders are placed, and your project moves out of planning and into progress! Your file will then go to project management, during which time you will receive information about scheduling and pre-construction meetings.

Sometimes, a homeowner will change his or her mind, or want to add to a project after construction has begun. Our team works together to adapt to a changing scope or schedule, so that your project moves along with as little interruption as possible.
Before you sign your contract, we spend a great deal of time thinking though all aspects of your job to anticipate challenges and minimize scope changes. However, changes may still arise after your project has gone into construction. The first type of change is a necessary adjustment required to keep the project to code, that had only become apparent after the wall was opened. The second type of change is customer-driven, like upgrading your tile selection or changing your sink style. In both instances, a change order will be created.
If you choose to make changes or unforeseen conditions require a change to the original scope, you will be given a change order document that will include the new details of your project as well as pricing changes. Payment for change orders is generally due upon approval.
Depending on the scope of your project, you may be responsible for removing some personal items from the room or emptying cabinets. Your designer and project manager will meet with you in your home prior to demolition and will explain the construction process as well as any pre-construction requirements

The length of the remodeling phase depends on the size and complexity of your job, but it typically takes six to eight weeks for a kitchen and four to six weeks for a large bathroom. Once your project details are determined, our team will provide you with an estimated project duration, but there are factors, such as unforeseen issues found after demolition, that can also impact the timeline. Our project manager will be in constant communication with you about the progress of your project once it reaches the construction phase.
We pride ourselves on our cleanliness. Our crews and tradespeople understand that they are on a construction site, but also in your home. We take time out at the end of each day to sweep up dust and debris, wipe down surfaces, and pick up small items that may have fallen to the floor. In addition, we provide plastic zip walls to contain debris, a high-quality air filter, and tools with vacuum attachments to keep you as comfortable as possible.
We know that you will love your new space once the project is complete! We provide a professional cleaning at the end of construction; everything will be “move-in” ready. We take extra precautions to protect the rest of your home as well, such as installing floor protection area and wrapping bannisters and other surfaces that may be vulnerable to scratches or dings. We vow to repair any incidental damage that may have been caused elsewhere on your property; at completion, your new space will be better than you ever imagined, and the rest of your home will be just as it was before we arrived.
Are your workers licensed and insured? Yes, and we can provide documentation for all required coverages upon request. Our employees and tradespeople are licensed and insured and have all passed background checks.
Construction work in your home typically occurs between 8-5 Monday through Friday. Any work happening outside of those days and hours will require your prior approval.
