Frequently Asked Questions

How do we begin?

After you get in touch (Let's Talk) with our team, we’ll set up a simple conversation. (Ideally over a cup of coffee at your house!) This is an essential step in our process. It helps us determine if this will be a good fit for both of us. It’s free of charge. We’ll get to know each other, set expectations, and discuss your goals, budget, and anything else we should consider at the start of the project.

How long does the process take?

A typical design + build project can take anywhere from several weeks to about a year, depending on the size of the project. This time frame includes design, selections, permits, and construction. We’ll work with you to determine a realistic time frame based on your specific situation.

Would you consult on a home we’d like to purchase?

Potentially! Some of our best projects have started by consulting on potential home purchases. Let’s discuss your goals and what we could do to make a potential purchase fit your lifestyle.

Will I need to find an architect?

No. That’s the advantage with the design + build process with Refined Renovations. We offer a single source for design, architecture, and construction. This makes for a more efficient process, and much happier customers.

Do I have to find my own contractor?

No. It’s not necessary. Because we are taking care of everything from the design to the construction, you can focus on other things. Everything you see pictured are projects our craftsmen built.

How much will it cost to remodel?

Because the size and scope of a project can vary greatly, it’s hard for us to give any kind of realistic, “ballpark” estimate without discussing things like your goals, existing home, and parameters of design.

What types of payment options do you offer?

Because no two projects or situations are the same, this question is easiest answered at our first meeting. This will allow us to get to know a little more about you, the scale of your project, and your financial options. Whether you secure financing through one of our banking partners using a home equity loan or draw from your liquid reserves, we’ll work together to find an option that best fits you. Credit card payments are not accepted.

What areas do you service?

We offer design + build services, primarily, throughout southeastern Wisconsin but will consider projects outside that area depending on the scope and logistics. We are always looking for the ‘right projects’, regardless of location.
