What to Expect
During the project, you should be prepared for people coming and going from your home, moving furniture and personal valuables, storage of dumpsters, and the use of keys and bathrooms.

Although the remodeling of your home is an exciting process, you need to expect some inconvenience and disorder during construction. Although we are neat and orderly and seal off work areas, some dust will drift out.
