What is Design/Build Remodeling: What is it and why does it matter? 

The best way to describe Design/Build. A single company with a team of experienced professionals who know all the ins and outs of which service providers to choose, and who to avoid, the latest trends, what works and what doesn’t. You have one contact for all communications of your choices and preferences. We manage the scheduling, specifications, contracts, and all of the million details to deliver a beautiful, crisis-free renovation project. When you work with a Design/Build company the people who create the design that reflects your expectations are on the same team as the people who execute the same plan. With a Design/Build company you’ll firm up the budget ahead of time with all the material costs already calculated.

We offer a complete line of pre-construction remodeling project design capabilities to help you visualize what your project will look like when we are finished. Our 3D software can show you photo-realistic views of your future space and together we can make changes before we get started renovating. This ensures a smooth process from start to finish.


What do I receive as part of the Design Retainer?

  • 3-D CAD conceptual renderings and floorplan
  • Proposed scope of work
  • Proposed budget
  • Proposed level of finishes and product selection recommendations
  • Up to (3) total design revisions


How much is the investment?

2% of the estimated cost of the project ($375.00 minimum)
If you decide to move forward with us, we will apply the cost of the design retainer towards your final draw payment.


Do we have to have a design completed in order to get a proposal?

If your project involves moving walls and fixtures around and you don’t have a remodeling project design in place, we can’t prepare a detailed proposal for you. We need the design in place in order to do that and avoid just giving you a rough estimate. If your project only involves updating your existing space, a design is not needed, but it can help you visualize what the completed project will look like.


If we don’t use your company, do we get to keep the drawings?

Yes. The plans won’t be “build-able” with measurements but you do get to keep the concepts/layouts and drawings.

What are the benefits of having a design in place?

When we have a completed York remodeling project design, a detailed proposal and specifications in place before a renovation begins the process is smooth and stress-free. Following this process also helps to ensure your project will be delivered on schedule and on budget because we will have a baseline plan to refer to, which keeps everything consistent and everyone on the same page.
