Be willing to come out to view job without having to pay him to show what my Vision is. Hard to know what I want over the phoneMar 21, 2018VerifiedTimothy B.'s reply
What Dan wanted was a 300 square foot addition built on the back of his and his wife's 1500 sq ft ranch home. He wants a crawl space beneath the addition that has a concrete slab floor, a family room addition, a bathroom addition with a ceramic tile shower. He wants this project to take advantage of the views available in the back of his home, this means multiple large windows. He is currently in the middle of a re-siding project that he is doing himself, but he is waiting to complete the back of the house until the addition is completed. Electrical service comes into the house in the location of the proposed addition, so electrical service would have to be relocated in order to complete the project. Actually, we get a pretty good idea from our first phone conversation of what a potential customer wants. We also discussed budget. Dan thought this project should cost $50,000. I explained that adding a large addition to the home with a bathroom and a ceramic shower and the fact that he was not looking for low-end fixtures or finishes, plus relocating electrical service to the property, that, based on national and regional averages, his project would more likely come in in the $60-70,000 range. I told him that there was a good chance that he would not recover that much when it comes time to sell, but I also understood that sometimes that is not a concern for our customers. I suggested that he speak it over with his wife and call me when we could schedule a time that we could sit down and all talk together. Dan agreed to call me back after he had a chance to speak with his wife so we could schedule a meeting and that is where we left it. We always strive to give sound and honest advice to potential customers (whether or not we feel the conversation will end up in us getting the job). It's the same advice we would give a friend or family member. That is what I did with Dan.
First time getting a kitchen remodel and it turned out amazing, no longer ashamed of my kitchen. I worked with Tim Bader who was honest, helpful, and realistic with the budget i put forward. I would absolutely recommend Tim and his crew for their professional work quality and attitudes.Feb 27, 2018Verified
They responded right away, very helpful and professionalJan 2, 2018Verified
Tim was excellent and great to work with, especially with this being our first experience with home improvement. He answered all our questions timely and was great at keeping us updated on the time line and costs of our project. We are happy with the work and have plans to work with him again in the future as new projects come up.Oct 23, 2017Verified
Worst possible person to work with came 5000 over budget and refused to tell me how that money was allocated due to bulk pricing. I honestly told him multiple times I needed to understand and he told me how much time I was wasting. Took 3 months to get a quote after I did everything he asked immediately. So if you have no worries about money and want to hear how busy he is go with him otherwise stay as far away as you can. He has no customer experience capabilities and does not listen to his customer what so ever. I found someone to do the same work with the same quality under budget.May 26, 2017VerifiedTimothy B.'s reply
Amanda contracted with us to define and price out her bathroom remodeling project. This included only writing specs and working up the price of the project. No onsite work was requested, offered or included. Amanda set a target budget that was $3500 below the national average for a bathroom remodel. She then selected materials and a design that far exceeded “average”. When we came back with a price higher than her target, she expressed frustration so we offered to make changes to bring her project more in line with her budget at no additional cost. We did that (twice). She was still not happy with the result. It became clear that we were not a good fit for Amanda, so after doing all the work agreed (and more), we promptly sent her a 100% refund (the same day).

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Even though there are no two jobs exactly alike, we do have a proprietary pricing system for costing our projects. What that means for you is that you will know what your project will cost before we start. The only thing that would change the price is if you request a change in the materials used or the scope of work.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?1. We start with a brief phone call to get a few details about your project and see the if it's a good fit. 2. If so, we can schedule a visit at the project site to talk about additional project elements, your vision and your expectations about the project. 3. After we have this information, we'll give you a preliminary estimate of the cost of building your project. This consists of a price range of similar projects we have done in the past. 4. If you find the estimate acceptable, we will move into the project design phase. During project design, we help guide you through the material selection process and help you make decisions that will keep your project on budget. 5. After you have settled on a design, we will provide a specifications list for your project and a lump-sum contract proposal for building it. Steps one through five usually take between 3-30 days depending on the clarity of your vision of the finished project, the scope of work you would like completed and how quickly you want to move through the material selection process. The reason we do it this way is because when you come to us, we will be serious about getting your project done and accurate about what it's going to cost. We are looking for customers who value the same principles.
