Daedalus Design LLC has been in business serving CT, Westchester and Putnam counties for 18 years. We've been around that long because we genuinely care about the project legacy we leave behind with our clients. Whether you have a big budget or a small one, we work to achieve your vision within that budget. If you want simple trim or ornate 3 stage crown, there is only one way to install it.......... the right way, every time. Quality is job one and we don't take a deposit and disappear, we're in it for the duration.
My name is Phil Herzegovitch and I have been an active member and executive board member of the CT chapter of NARI (National Association of the Remodeling Industry) I have also been a member of NAHB-R and hold Graduate Remodeler and Aging In Place Specialist Certifications. I have been BPI certified as well. Studying as a cabinet makers apprentice during my High School years, I has been in the trades since then. Having studied Aeronautical Engineering and Graphic Design, I bring an interesting perspective to all of our projects.
We stay up to date with current trends and are well informed regarding the latest building materials, both pros and cons. I emphasize continuing education for myself and those who have worked for me. I am active in supporting our industry and connect with fine, high quality remodelers and builders all over the country.

Typically I start off with a face to face meeting with the client wherever they feel comfortable meeting. Usually their home. The project is dicussed to see if we are a good fit for their project. Remodeling can be very different from new home building because generally, the clients are living in the home. I understand that these situations can be very emotional ones and I do my best to aleviate this by going through a step by step of how the project should go along. open line of contact are very important. If the client feels comfortable with us, we move forward.
I was an apprentice cabinet maker, I hold certifications a a Graduate Remodeler and Aging In Place Specialist through NAHB. I have been BPI trained as a Building Anylist. I attend continuing education courses and seminars throughout the year through online and professional trade show attendance.
With remodeling, every project is different, bringing with it unique problems and solution to those problems. There is no set system or pricing except an hourly rate which is different for every operation we perform.
As mentioned before, I was an apprentice cabinet maker during my high school years. I have always loved working with my hands and applying my design sense to the work I have done, regardless of the trade.
I would say the most important advice I could give a potential client is to do your homework. Make sure the contractor is licensed (my license numbers are on all my advertising and website). Make sure he/she is adequately insured for loss or damages (rule of thumb, the liability policy should be able to replace your home should something catastrophic happen). Make sure there is workmans comp insurance for all workers and a legal waiver for any of the principals (NYS has official ones as does CT). Ask for references and actually call them. Finally, go with your gut, if the pro makes you feel comfortable and is open with you, that's a great sign.
The most important question is one you ask yourself. What is my budget? Can I afford to undertake this project? What are my needs, my wants and my wishes?(make a list). These are the best starting questions.
