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
My bathroom has been a disaster with the shower leaking and my wife and I struggled with a design that would fit both our needs and yet keep our small bathroom within its footprint and pricing. We also have two young kids and our focus and priorities are continually shifting. The Bamboo team did a phenomenal job managing the design process from start to finish and staying on top of us without becoming visibly frustrated. I would highly recommend utilizing them to help design projects around your property. It was a nice experience.Dec 3, 2018VerifiedBamboo Remodeling's reply
Thanks Burke - great to be serving you and your wife on fixing the disaster left by your previous contractor!
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
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.Dec 12, 2018VerifiedBamboo Remodeling's reply
Hi Nathan, thanks for the kind words! We are so glad to be working with you and can't wait to move to the build phase of your project! We know you'll love your house once it's done!
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.Jan 8, 2020Bamboo Remodeling's reply

- 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 25% markup on labor (the same as Uber) 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 or more per hour. Our hourly rates are the same whether your house costs $200K or $2M+.
- 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. 3. Plan - you work with our Construction Ops team and a project manager to create a detailed plan, with tasks, dependencies, time estimates, expected labor rates and more precise materials projections. 4. 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. 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. The head of our Construction Ops team has 18 years experience in construction, and is also a licensed architect. Our project managers all have a minimum of 15 years experience in construction.
