What Makes Remodeling With Advance Design Studio Unique?

Anyone can produce a pretty picture, but do you ever wonder why so many remodeling experiences are so negative?  We think it shouldn’t be that way!  Whether you’re contemplating a new kitchen remodel, a bath remodel, an addition or a whole house renovation; runaway budgets, poor craftsmanship, AWOL contractors, and painful projects shouldn’t be the norm.  If you’re nervous about remodeling, you’re not alone!

Homeowner’s Top 3 Remodeling Fears:

1. Can we trust the contractor?
2. Will the project stay on budget?
3. Will the project be done in time?

We understand your fears.  It’s enough to intimidate the most determined homeowners.
