Frequently Asked Questions

How do I choose a home improvement company?2020-08-01T12:34:59+00:00

Finding a home improvement company can be a daunting task.  When you are first starting out, look at company reviews and the owner’s response to the reviews.  This will tell you a great deal about how personable and professional the company is and how they treat clients.  Ask around; if your neighbors have recently had some home improvement projects completed, ask them which company they used.  Word of mouth is a powerful tool and will help you in making your final decisions on which company to choose.

Do you provide custom designs and project estimates?2020-08-01T12:34:23+00:00

We provide our customers with a variety of different project design options, depending on the scope and size of the project, along with the estimated cost to complete the work.  We will work with you to finalize your design and make sure that all your needs for the project are met.  Once you sign off on the design and put down a deposit, you’ll get to watch as we bring your dreams to reality.

What can I expect to spend on my project?2020-08-01T12:33:11+00:00

Home improvement projects can range from as low as $5,000 to as high as $250,000+.  For example, a small brick paver installation may be closer to the $5,000 figure, while a large landscape design/build project for a custom home can very well equal or exceed $250,000.  Usually, a homeowner can expect to spend between $10,000 and $50,000 for most landscape design/build projects, with design, scope of work, and choice of materials each influencing the total cost of a project.

Why is my landscaping budget important?2020-08-01T12:32:47+00:00

Your budget is an important part of the initial planning process. It’s always well-advised to have a budget number in mind when first consulting with your designer, as this will get everyone on the same page and give the designer a good idea of how much they should design into your project without exceeding your budget — but while still tackling your favorite design ideas. If they create a design that is too extensive, then they could very well exceed what you’re willing to spend and waste hours of design time. If it is not extensive enough, then we may let you down and not provide you with the full vision of what your project could become. We have drawn out two different designs for the same project to give you a visual example of what we mean.

What is my return on investment (ROI) with landscaping?2020-08-01T12:32:23+00:00

The 2018 Remodeling Impact Report: Outdoor Features published by the National Association of Realtors suggests that a carefully planned and executed landscape design can increase your home value by 5% to 15% over a home with no landscaping.  That can result in an increase of $25,000 to $75,000 on a $500,000 home.  Ninety-four percent of real estate agents suggest that sellers improve their curb appeal before even listing their home for sale.  A carefully designed and well-maintained landscape will surely attract potential buyers to your home.

Can home remodeling projects increase my home value?2020-08-01T12:32:03+00:00

Real estate agents have ranked complete kitchen and bathroom remodels as the best interior remodeling projects to increase your home’s value.  These projects also appeal to homebuyers, and in some markets, you can recover over 100% of the cost of the improvements when listing your home for sale.

What can I expect during construction?2020-08-01T12:31:23+00:00

Construction can be quite messy, and there’s no way around that — it’s an essential part of the process.  Plan for the potential of lots of dirt, debris, a messy yard, and a large dumpster or dump trailer on your property.  Even with all the mess of construction, our team will do their best to be clean, well-organized, and leave your property in a respectable manner at the end of each workday.  An open line of communication between your designer, construction supervisor, and tradesmen is always maintained.  This ensures that your project flows seamlessly and any problems that may arise are addressed immediately.  Expect periodic updates from your designer or construction supervisor to let you know how the project is progressing; this is key to a successful project, and you should never hesitate to reach out if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.

What can I expect after the project is completed?2020-08-01T12:30:47+00:00

Once the job is completed and you are satisfied with the project, we will conclude by cleaning up, collecting the final payment, and photographing our work.  We appreciate your business, and ask you to consider us for your future projects!  We also ask that you take the time to review us on Google, as businesses these days rely heavily on online reviews.

What is your Best Value Guarantee?2020-08-01T12:28:42+00:00

Our Best Value Guarantee ensures you get the best materials, best tradesmen, and best price for your project.  We also guarantee our workmanship, and if something goes wrong, we always make it right.

Are you bonded and insured?2020-08-01T12:28:11+00:00

Yes, we are fully insured with commercial general liability and umbrella policies as well as workers’ compensation insurance.  We are bonded on a case-by-case basis for certain types of projects, such as commercial and municipal projects, or if specially requested.
