A remodeling process built around you

The start to finish remodeling process is an element that can often get overlooked. When working with a design-build firm like us, you can count on a process crafted around you. From your first interaction with our team to your closing walk after your project is complete, we are there for you every step of the way.

We aim to remodel with transparency which means that we are constantly collaborating with and in contact with you, so you know exactly what is going on at all times. 

When deciding on the right partner for your remodel, make sure to ask questions about the process before signing off on anything. It is an integral part of remodeling, and you shouldn’t be kept in the dark!

OUR DESIGN-BUILD PROCESS

Step 1

Contact Us

Ready to get started? You can contact us using the form below or via phone. You’ll get to speak with our design coordinator, Jenny, who will schedule you for your free design consultation at a time and date that is convenient for you.

Step 2

FREE DESIGN CONSULTATION

We’re excited to listen and understand how your home is and isn’t working for you. Our number one priority for this visit is to learn what your needs are. How do you currently use the space? What do you wish it was like? How should it evolve with family in the future? Your dedicated designer will share our philosophy and explain our design-build process further. If we seem like a good match, we’ll move on to the design process.

Step 3

MEASURING

Your designer will come to your home and measure out the space to create an “as-built” drawing.  Over the next week or two, your designer will create two 3D renderings of your completed design to present in your next meeting!

Step 4

IDEAS MEETING

Your design team will have worked out several plans that turn your needs into beautiful, smart designs. Our clients are amazed by the way our experienced designers bring their plans to life. We’ll walk through 3D renderings to help you visualize your new space. You’re an important part of this meeting and an integral member of the design team, so be ready to collaborate. Your engagement is essential for creating a space that changes not just your home, but the way you live in it.

Step 5

SELECTIONS MEETING

It’s time to select the materials for your space! In this meeting, you and your designer will meet at a design center, where you’ll choose the perfect materials, colors, and style to complete the look and feel of your home remodel.

Step 6

PRODUCTION WALK

Now, it’s time to meet your Project Manager (PM)! Your PM will be your point of contact throughout construction, and will manage your production schedule as well as all of the trades working in your home. In this meeting, your PM will walk the areas you’re remodeling to jot down anything of note for the construction team. They’ll also look to get ahead of any potential challenges that may affect the timeline of your project so that we can give you the most accurate schedule for your remodel.

Step 7

PLAN REVIEW

In this meeting, we will review final construction drawings and the menu of pricing options. Within the construction drawings you will see all detailed elements of your project. Full elevations and construction notes are completed. Within the pricing menu you will see how and which design elements impact the cost of the project. In this meeting, we bring the design and budget together, select a construction start date for your project and sign construction contracts. 

Step 8

CONSTRUCTION

It’s finally time to bring your new home to life! Construction of your space will take between 7 and 16 weeks, depending upon the scope, size, and complexity of your design. You will receive a detailed construction calendar and weekly updates throughout the project via the Buildertrend mobile app, and your PM will handle everything else (scheduling, material needs, trades) on your behalf. If you have any questions or concerns throughout this stage, your PM will either be on-site or a quick phone call away.

Step 9

WELCOME TO YOUR NEW SPACE!

Your new space is ready for you to move back in and share it with the people you love! At this stage we have successfully build joy in your home. Your vision has been brought to life and we have gone above and beyond all your expectations for your remodel. Now it is time to sit back, relax, and enjoy your new space!

Happy clients are why we do what we do.
Here is what some of them had to say..

We found the FBC team to be very professional and helpful through the full design/remodel process. The work also stayed right on schedule without any delays, so the project moved very quickly!
Emily F. Basement Remodel
We were stressed out about remodeling our basement since we have a new baby and a very anxious dog, but knew we wanted it done so we could enjoy the space more. Working with FBC was a breeze. They took care of everything. The team was very responsive to questions and concerns. Communication was great and we were given an update on the project every day. We couldn’t be happier with the final result! They turned a bunch of empty unused space into an EPIC party room!
Megan S. Basement & Living Room Remodel
We’ve done 3 projects with FBC. FBC is very easy to work with – we like the predictability of cost and timing – they stay on schedule and get it done.
Brenda B.Bathroom Remodel
From the initial phone call, to the final walk through, the entire process was wonderful. The communication was amazing and the basement turned out better than we expected! We have enjoyed this process tremendously, and hope to work with FBC again in the future!
Jill B.Basement Remodel
We would highly recommend FBC Remodel to anyone we know who is thinking of a remodel. From the initial meeting, the time frame to finish the project and quality of work FBC Remodel exceeded our expectations!
Mike L.Basement Remodel
Communications has been excellent with the team. The cabinets that we picked originally have been delayed until December instead of September, but FBC was able to quickly pivot and find another cabinetmaker to make our cabinets in time. We are very pleased with their commitment to stay on schedule with our remodel.

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!!!”
