Discover a Smarter Way to Remodel

A Client Recently Asked Me…

Why do you prefer to design and build?

Anyone who does their research knows that remodeling can be difficult on the homeowner. Most people find a designer first, then search for a contractor to build it. Incorporating design with construction results in a better experience for the client.

When the designer, estimator and construction crew work together as a team, it minimize problems. We work together to address your requests and to build the best quality project possible. This significantly reduces problems during the construction phase. If I can make the process smoother, you are going to be happier.

Here are some of the benefits of our design-build process…

  • No surprise cost over runs
  • Get a fixed price contract, not an estimate
  • Maximize your budget
  • See your design as if you were standing in it
  • Fix problems before construction starts
  • Collaborate with contractors to improve your design
  • Our proven process walks you through every step
  • Detailed project plans keep everyone “in the loop”

No Surprise Cost Overruns

Surprises aren’t fun when they cost you money. Avoid the risk of cost overruns when you work with us. How do we do it? We take the time to properly prepare for your project.

Fixed Price Contract

When you are ready to build or remodel, what good is an “estimate”? At this point you probably want to know exactly how much your project will cost. Our fixed price contract will help you sleep better at night.

A local remodeling cost report can help you get an idea of your project cost before you get started with design. Enter your email at the upper right hand side of this page to get yours.

Maximize Your Budget

By focusing on what is most important to you, we avoid wasting money on items that don’t return a “bang for your buck”. This is made possible by the integration of the design and construction team. We work together to keep you on budget.

Our Design Process Guides You

Step by Step, you will have experienced team members to help you make excellent decisions. Not only the designer, but estimators and construction management too.

Remodeling Design in 3D

If a picture says 1,000 words, a 3D view must say a million. In addition to your 2D plans, you will be able to view the space as if you were standing in it.  It’s a powerful tool, and it will help you get the space just right.

Detailed Project Plans

Our building plans are of architectural quality and will give the build team a reference source while completing construction.

I contacted Charles Joseph Renovations to provide an estimate on the renovation a and repair work for a home that I’d like to make an offer on.
Charlie was prompt in replying, he met me and my realtor on tune, we did a thorough walk-through of the home and he provided suggestions, information and explanations for every room. He also provided suggestions that would add value specific to the town the home is located in.
With the valuable information and advice Charlie provided I was able to make an informed offer to the seller and made requests for repairs that should be made to the exterior by the homeowner’s association and not the seller or the buyer!
I will most definitely hire Charles Joseph for any and all of my renovation needs

I wanted to take this opportunity to express our gratitude and satisfaction with the work you have done. The quality of the work, the cooperative nature of your staff, and the ideas you had combined to make the project a tremendous success for us. We were concerned that the new work wouldn’t blend with existing building because of the uniqueness of the home, but it blends perfectly. Looking at the work, it is obvious that we made the right choice by choosing you as the contractor. I don’t even want to imagine the nightmare scenario of a lesser contractor ruining our home that was so lovingly created by the late architect, Barbara Garfield. I have already recommended your company to several people considering projects. I really felt that you were always looking out for our best interests, even when it wasn’t in yours.

I wanted to write you to say how much we enjoyed the process of working with you and the guys at Charles Joseph Remodeling. You understood what we wanted from pictures and a few design meetings and made it easy for us to see what our new basement would look like. The ideas you had improved the way the space worked and exceeded our expectations. The new space has a very clean and modern look, and we couldn’t be happier with it. Thanks for getting it done ahead of schedule too. Oh, and the three month checkup was a pleasant surprise, I had never heard of a contractor coming back months later to reinspect his own work! Wishing you the best of luck with your future endeavors. If I hear of anyone who needs your service I will surely pass your name on. (actual written testimonial, available on our website)

I have worked with Charles for many years, he is my go to guy, for EVERYTHING. I’ve owned a store for 12 years now, and he has always been there to help me with whatever I need. I also want to make it a point to mention how kind and trustworthy he is, its hard to find good people now a days. I would highly recommend Charles for any home improvements and remodels. Five stars in my book!

Our office needed to have a supply room constructed so I contacted Charles Joseph Remodeling to see if he could help us out. He was prompt in responding to my initial request, came to the office and looked around, taking notes and making recommendations along the way. Received a quote from him quickly and was able to get the work done in a very reasonable time frame. The shelving looked great, cabinets were accessible, and he made it easy to move around the small room. The work was done neatly at all times with minimal interruptions to the office. Very happy with the work and would highly recommend Charles Joseph Remodeling.
