Before you begin gutting and demolition, it’s important to communicate with Sierra Remodeling experts and carefully research and plan your remodeling project. It’s a big, big undertaking and, we assure you, your proper planning and partnering with us will save you time, money and frustration.

Where to begin

Every remodeling project is unique however, the planning process has been relatively defined and, we have included a video above to get you started. Basically, you begin with early planning, more planning and lots and lots of communications with our experts!

We recommend you check with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and review the contractor’s record and any complaints. Also make sure the remodeling firm is licensed with the Arizona Registrar of Contractors (ROC). Sierra Remodeling’s ROC Licenses are #080355 and #066290. We encourage you to request referrals from us and read our clients’ comments too.

Evaluate your existing home

Assess the condition of your home including its structural, electrical, plumbing, heating and cooling (mechanical) systems. If you need assistance Sierra Remodeling will conduct a thorough inspection of your home. We make sure attics, roofs, utility rooms, unfinished rooms over garages and all of those out-of-the-way places in your home are carefully checked. Also, we carefully inspect your foundation, siding, stucco and drainage.

Remember, the dollars you pay for a thorough home inspection will help identify those hidden issues that could cost you thousands of dollars after your home is remodeled! Sierra Remodeling ensures the home inspection is carefully and meticulously conducted. If there are any doubts raised during the evaluation, we will keep investigating until you are sure of the assessment.

Draft a reasonable wish list

Based on your thorough evaluation of your home, prioritize the repairs and renovations that must be completed (rotting, leaking, cracking, safety and home environment issues) versus the items that are purely cosmetic i.e., renovations that you would like to be done.

An honest evaluation will ensure critical home problems are identified up-front and fixed during the remodeling project.

Sierra Remodeling’s professionals will assist you in finalizing your wish list ensuring your must-haves are in line with your home evaluation and budget. We will also be mindful that the final outcome will be your wishes not our designer’s vision. We listen!

At Sierra Remodeling, our vast experience allows us to quote more precise estimates and actual costs, not ballpark figures. You can be confident that our cited contract costs will be very close to the actual billed amounts and the total cost to you at the end of the project. Realize if you make changes during the course of the remodel or home build, there will be additional charges and more time will be needed to complete your project. Again, your solid up-front planning and sound communications with our staff will help you ensure changes will be not be necessary.

Secure and pin down finances

Sometimes nailing down financing can be very challenging and more difficult than the evaluation process. The choices for financing a remodel or a new custom home have increased dramatically and, weighing all the factors can be intimidating.

Our customers generally have to weigh between getting a Home Equity loan versus a Reverse Mortgage loan versus taking out considerable savings or investments. To help you with financing your remodel, Sierra Remodeling has partnered with Wells Fargo and, we currently offer Home Improvement loans with rates as low as 7% for 60 months.

Finally, we recommend budgeting ten to twenty percent additional funds for those unexpected issues that are discovered during the remodel and, must be repaired. This frequently occurs when problems are not identified during your home’s evaluation and generally, the older the home the more prone it is to cost overruns.

Hire a team of experts

Please understand. When you choose a large, successful, experienced and comprehensive home remodeling and home building company like Sierra Remodeling, you are making a wise decision. You dramatically improve your outcomes and lessen your risk. You also save time and money while increasing the value of your most important investment – your home. At Sierra Remodeling, we realize you work a long time for your money and, we want to ensure you receive the greatest value for your hard earned savings. Some of our customers have saved 20 to 30 years for a new kitchen! Sierra Remodeling tries hard to stick to the agreed upon budget. We attempt to mitigate unknown behind-the-wall disasters and avoid any issues that can lead to costly delays.

Lots of contractors pretend to be licensed. To find out if a contractor’s ROC license is current and see other information related to the license, visit the Arizona Registrar of Contractors (ROC). Sierra Remodeling’s ROC licenses are #080355 and #066290. Additionally, our corporation is bonded and insured. We have been serving and building the surrounding communities since 1979 and, our Better Business Bureau rating is A+! We invite you to review our records at the ROC and the BBB! Take some time to read our many Clients Comments which will give you a better insight into our company and our staff.

    We had Sierra Remodeling install a new shower and replace the old tub with an attractive, functional bench/storage cabinet, in our master bathroom. Thomas and Bob did their usual excellent job on the shower. Gerald created the beautiful bench with a spacious oak cabinet underneath. And Matt added the finishing touches, including the addition of a new window in the shower. The resulting overall craftsmanship is unsurpassed and fit our budget perfectly.

    Very professional, personable, and friendly from start to finish. Every person assigned to the project, from the project manager Jeremy to all the workers/contractors did an exceptional job with the tear-down due to the damage and the rebuild. We are absolutely delighted with every aspect of the project, and we would not hesitate to use this company again for any future construction or remodel jobs. THANK YOU to Gerald, Justin, Cody, Alex, Pablo, Larry, Robert, Francisco, and anyone else we may...

    We had a partial remodel done on our master bathroom. Sierra Remodeling did an outstanding job...it is beautiful and we love it. We didn't even shop around to compare prices. After our initial meeting with Kevin we knew that we just wanted to use Sierra Remodeling. The installers were prompt, communicated with us, and cleaned up after themselves. They were all a joy to have around, especially Robert. It is always hard to have a remodel done when you have to live in the house while the work...

    This is the third time we've had Sierra Remodeling & Home Builders do work for us. We've been happy each time, but this time the addition of beams to our ceiling just made our living room pop. As a friend of mine in England said upon seeing this picture, "It looks like a photo you'd see in a magazine." Super happy with the whole thing. Guys were awesome. Thank you, Sierra Remodeling for another job well done.

    We are very pleased with the ceiling & stucco repair we received from Sierra Remodeling. Rudy was professional and kind, stopping by to evaluate our job, and to provide an estimate. He also called, and stopped by more than once, to provide information, and to follow up, once the job was complete. Justin R. was very diligent in his work, and the finished product looks great! We will be happy to call on Sierra Remodeling for future work, and to recommend the company to others.
