The home remodel experience with Bamboo has been amazing so far! They bring an innovative and transparent approach to the industry. Our remodel started with a complimentary 3D scan of our entire home and a video conference to walk through our projects. We are currently in the design phase and have worked with some very talented 3D designers that were recommded by the Bamboo team. We can’t believe that our home could look as incredible as some of the desings we have seen! While implementation has not yet started, working with the Bamboo team so far has been a very positive experience. The staff is super friendly and very responsive to any and all asks from us. We have specifically been working with Johanna as our project manager. Her attentiveness and attention to detail has helped make what could easily be a stressfull process a breeze. We would highly recommend Bamboo to anyone looking into home remodel projects.

Details: Multiple room remodel • Kitchen • Living room • Bathroom • No existing plans - need design suggestions • No, the project is not covered by an insurance claim • Within the next 3 months

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.

Details: Full remodel of existing bathroom • No plumbing fixtures will be relocated • No electrical will need to be relocated • No existing plans, but have a good idea of what I want • Update the bathroom's look • Replace bathroom furniture and fixtures • Guest (full bathroom used by guests) • Residential

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.

My experience so far concerns the planning stage. I was contacted by Charmaine from Bamboo and she was very easy to communicate with. I felt she understood my vision regarding my shower remodeling. So far I have met with the designer, architect and Charmaine and I felt comfortable with all concerns. We spoke of many things that would enhance the project as well as ideas that may not be feasible to the project. I did not feel there was any issue that was not discussed, during this meeting. All meeting were conducted via video conference which I prefer. I feel very comfortable with this company and have other house remodeling projects that I looking forward to using Bamboo as my contractor. We are in the planning stages as I advised earlier but I plan to review the overall project when it becomes completed.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We operate on a transparent cost plus model in which you can see where every dollar goes. We charge a 33% markup on labor (the same as Uber) and 11% insurance on materials. Given this, our trades earn more money per hour than with other GCs, but you pay less, because our overheads and profit and significantly lower than industry average.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We have five phases: 1. Pre-Purchase - We do a 3D scan of your existing space, write the scope together, and give you a cost estimate - all free with no commitment to purchase. 2. Design - We pair you with an interior designer and/or 3D artist to create a look for the space, similar to what you see on the HGTV shows. This costs from $400 per room, with no commitment to do construction with us. 3. Plan - You work with our Construction Ops team and a superintendent to create a detailed plan, with tasks, dependencies, time estimates, expected labor rates and more precise materials projections. 4. Build - We get started 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. 5. 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?

    Our founding team has built two venture capital backed software companies, and software is a big part of our business. We have licensed architects and collectively decades of experience in construction.
