FBC Remodel’s Design-Build Process

The homeowner should feel joy when remodeling his or her home. As we designed our processes, we envisioned our team’s passion and mission.

Through the entire design and execution process, our team works with you from the moment your project is conceived. You will not have to hire a contractor and design the layout yourself because we will handle all of the grunt work on your behalf.  We realize that you might not be familiar with the concept of working with a design-build company, but it is the best way to get exactly what you want, reduce your stress levels, and have a space you will be proud to show off.

When you work with us, you can begin building joy in your home! Free design consultations are provided by our award-winning designers. During your design consultation, our designers will listen to your needs, wants, and interests so they can create a space that matches your vision.

We’ll make sure that every measurement is accurate as part of our basement remodeling process, we’ll create 3D renderings so you can visualize the space, and allow you to work with us on creating the space of your dreams.

As you move from the design phase to the construction phase, you’ll go through the construction phase. The construction phase will provide you with an in-depth renovation schedule. Your nearly finished basement will be ready for you to finish within about six weeks (usually).

Customer Reviews

FBC Remodel is proud to Build Joy® for homeowners. See what our customers have to say about working with us.

“The design/construction approach by FBC produced an excellent finished product for us. We added a large recreation room for pool, TV and games along with a bedroom and bathroom. Ceiling soffits, arched entries and angled walls created a unique and inviting space. The project team and trade partners did fine work and we are very happy with our new basement. All work was completed on schedule and within budget. The best part was having all construction access through the basement window. Our only advice is to carefully review all design details to assure that everything you want is clearly specified in the drawings. Then be part of the team by doing quality control as the project moves along.”

Darrel H.

“We can't say enough about the design team at FBC. We had multiple companies bid on our project and everyone else came back with the same basic design (a good but not spectacular layout). But FBC looked at the space from a completely different angle and in the process was able to create everything on our wishlist including an extra room. The design was elegant and functional and our family now benefits from it every day.”

Michael S.

“FBC did an amazing job with our 1600 sq ft basement. The sales team listened to our vision, offered several options and helped us stay within budget. Our PM was fantastic! We received daily communication with minimal life interruption, realistic expectations and partnered with us to ensure every aspect was covered. They even finished early!!! We had met with 2 other contractors and are so happy about our choice! They accommodated our quirky requests for a brewery room, rerouting our laundry dryer vent, closeting our water piping for access and exterior window well changes. Best choice ever!!!”
