1How soon can you get started on my project?
As soon as possible! However, I suggest keeping in mind any long lead items that need to be ordered including Cabinetry, Permits, Doors, and any custom orders. It’s important to understand that these items will have an effect on the timeline/scheduling of your project. Make sure to read “Our Process”.
2Do you provide free Estimates?
Yes, all Estimates are offered at no charge.
3How often will we meet?
First, we would suggest contacting us to set up an initial appointment! We will schedule a time with you to do an initial walkthrough to better understand your goals. Depending on the scope of work, our Subcontractors may need to do a walk through as well. Once your project begins, we will communicate continuously throughout.

My standards have always been high and I want the best for my Clients, therefore I work only with the best!
