Frequently Asked Questions
How long have you been in business?
We’ve been in business for more than 18 years.
What services do you provide?
We are a design-build firm, meaning we provide designing services as well as the construction of the project.
Can we use our own design firm if we have one?
Absolutely, although we partner with the best in town!
What areas of the Twin Cities do you primarily work?
Yes, we primarily market to the western portion of the Cities, although we do travel further east from time to time!
What is your process?
Design – based on that conversation, we put your vision on paper, using some of the best designers in the Twin Cities. Of course, if you have a designer you want to use, that’s great.
Bid – we walk through all of the components of the project and the overall cost with you. If something’s not right, or needs tweaking, we’re on it.
Rebid/Redesign – based on the bid, we sharpen our pencils and adjust the scope and budget as need be.
Schedule project – once we have your approval to move forward, the fun really starts! We lay out a week-by-week schedule, breaking down what you can expect every step of the way.
Construction – throughout the entire project, we communicate with you so you always know what we are doing and when.
Final walk-through – this usually involves a happy dance!
How long does a project take?
One thing is certain when it comes to home remodeling: nothing is certain! The length of a project is completely dependent on the type of project. Once we know the scope and have built the schedule, you will have a rough approximation of the total time your project will take.
How do we know if our construction project is a good investment?
We’ll help you understand. The last thing we want to do is embark on a project that won’t return a healthy ROI for you, if that’s a concern. We know the real estate market and we have a wide network of real estate professionals, so we will make sure you understand what this investment means for you and your home, and what kind of ROI you can expect and in what timeframe.
What can we expect when we work with you?
First and foremost, you will appreciate the level of service we provide. That means a few things such as focusing on the communication we provide you before and during the project. You also will come to appreciate our reliability – if we say we’re going to do something, we do it. And if for some reason we get delayed, we’ll call you to tell you why. You also will love not only the quality of work we provide, but also the personal attention we bring to the job. We’re in your house, working to make your home better, and that never goes unnoticed.
Do you have additional references we can talk to?
Absolutely! We’ll connect you with a previous customer or two who had a similar project to the one you are thinking of.
