FBC Remodel’s Design-Build Process

If the homeowner remodels his or her home, he or she should feel joy. We envisioned our team’s passion and mission as we developed our processes.

Our team works with you during the entire design and execution process. We will handle all of the grunt work for you, so you don’t have to hire a contractor.  Design-build companies may be unfamiliar to you, but they are the most effective way to achieve your personal goals, reduce your stress level, and create a space you are proud to show off.

With us, you can start improving your home today! Award-winning designers will provide you with free design consultations. As part of the design consultation, our designers will get to know you, so that they can create a space that reflects your vision.

As part of our basement remodeling process, we’ll take accurate measurements, we’ll create 3D renderings to allow you to visualize the space, and we’ll work with you to create the space you dream of.

During the transition from the design to construction phases, you will go through the construction phase. A detailed renovation schedule will be provided to you during the construction phase. You will be able to finish your nearly finished basement in six weeks (usually).

Contact FBC Remodel today to begin the design-build process for your nearly finished basement remodeling project.

Customer Reviews

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

“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.

“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.

“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!!!”
