5 Star Construction & Design, LLC
One of our strong suits is we show up and on time. We always go the extra mile for you. My partner and I are not only licensed builders/ remodelers, I am an Interior Designer and a color expert. My partner, Frank, is a remodeler, handyman, real estate broker and home flipper with 61 homes under his belt. This gives us more value for our clients along with our talents.
We love the versatility and most of our clients become repeat customers having us on speed dial! That is very complimentary and rewarding!
I, personally, enjoy the decorating aspect of the jobs. My talent is tiling, painting, and window treatments, so to see a project come to completion, is so exciting. I was voted Decorator of the Year at a very large blind and drapery company before opening my own drapery workroom and had a design business for 18 years before getting my builder's license. I decorate with your taste in mind, so your home is a reflection of you, not me.
Frank & I work very hard, but because of our passion to enrich people's homes, we never get tired of it!!
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
There is a phone interview to hear what the perspective client has in mind and what the expectations are, we schedule a complimentary appointment to see the project, and then quote the job. By this point, we will all know if we will be a fit. If everyone is on the same page, the job gets done right the first time. If price is the most important factor, we will probably not be the one you want. Our pricing is middle of the road, and most people should shop there. Too cheap a price means corners are cut somewhere and we do not cut corners.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
47 years of color study
45 years experience with window treatments
57 homes rehabbed
8 years as licensed contractors, which we take seriously
Both owned a business for 20+ years before upgrading to include a builders license and remodeling company, currently
Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.
Nothing about our projects is ordinary. Each job has it's own challenges and scope of work specific to that home. Only a few jos can be quoted up front, like installing new doors and drywall repairs. Some of that can be quoted ahead of time. We like to be as accurate in our pricing as possible, to avoid surprises. Keep in mind we can't see behind walls, but if we see the project first, we can have suspicions of difficulty, due to our vast experience
