Bamboo App Inc
About this pro
Working with Bamboo App on our remodel project has been a breathe of fresh air. The use of technology to facilitate the project moving forward while also giving the homeowner oversight into the scope of work, timeline and budget is a true revelation for the industry. I'm really looking forward to seeing the finished product.Apr 5, 2018Verified
Working with them was great and easy! We remodeled the whole living room, kitchen and master bathroom at a much lower price than other contractors. We are very happy with the result! They repainted the whole kitchen, added the statuary white marble countertops, changed appliances, added bamboo flooring throughout the whole living room. The entire master bathroom was tiled with marble, lights were added, mirrors, sinks, cabinets were repainted, we ordered a new tub and a shower - all was installed by the crew. It was a great experience.Mar 19, 2018
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?We don't do special coupon gimmicks etc. We operate on a transparent cost plus model in which you can see where every dollar goes. We charge a 25% markup on labor and no markup on materials. A carpenter earning $16 per hour net will be charged at $20 per hour to the customer through our platform. With a traditional GC (and subcontractors), that same carpenter would be charged an effective labor rate of around $40 per hour. Our hourly rates are the same whether you house costs $200K or $2M+.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We have four phases: 1. Design - we do a 3D scan of your existing space, then pair you with an interior designer and 3D artist to create a look for the space, similar to what you see on the HGTV shows. 2. Plan - you work with a project manager to create a detailed plan, with tasks, dependencies, time estimates, expected labor rates and materials projections. 3. Build - you and your project manager select the trades you want to work on your remodel. You can change scope as you see fit without needing to negotiate change orders - new tasks get created, and you pay the same hourly rates you already negotiated. 4. Review - everyone reviews everybody. Each individual trade / Pro gets reviews in our process, incentivizing them to do good work.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Tania our senior PM has a degree in architecture and 20 years experience in general construction and architecture. We have an extended team of around 30 people across UX design, mobile app and enterprise software development working on our technology platform.
