We are an owner-operated design & build contractor that executes majority of our remodeling projects with our in house team. This is how we consistently keep the high quality level that our clients have come to expect.
There is not much regulation of construction here in Austin Tx. Homeowners get a false sense of security assuming that home inspections are completely protecting them from faulty construction in addition to sites like Angie's List and Yelp that give rankings based on customer experience and cost as the sole criteria of recommendation ( Imagine grades in school being given by individuals that are not experts in the curriculum). While this system of grading might work for nail salons and food, how can you risk selecting the person to work on your home in this fashion? While we acknowledge the clients experience is definitely important, the quality of the workmanship is equally as important, and (for our clientele) so are the designs. Some of the most important aspects of a remodeling project are the elements under the finished materials that can not be seen.
In Austin Tx, anyone with tools can say they are a contractor. Many Austin based design and build firms are owned by entrepreneurs that don't have much construction knowledge. These contractors rely on the knowledge and experience of their sub-contractors in order to execute their projects, whether it be kitchen & bathroom remodeling or building complete homes. So even if you see that someone has been doing this for a while, if they haven’t been properly educated in their trade, they are probably doing things wrong or don't have the background to identify improper workmanship with any of the individual trades involved in the project. So ask yourself, what is the difference between these companies? The nice website? The pictures? The impression you get from their smooth talking salesman? The organizations they join to gain credibility?
The owner of this company has designed and physically worked on every project on this website with his own two hands. There is no stock photography on this site!
