Frequently Asked Questions

What is the process going forward?

Typically, a customer works with a designer or an architect to get a clear picture of the goal. Once that is in place, architectural drawings are created. Drawings are then submitted to City or County offices to obtain necessary permits. This initial phase of the project would usually be a two to four week process. After permits are pulled, demolition begins and we are on our way.

How long will my project take?

The duration of the average kitchen or master bathroom project is 6-8 weeks after the above permitting process takes place. Auxiliary bathrooms or powder rooms would be closer to a 4-6 week duration. Additions or cabanas are largely dependent on scope, so an estimate is determined once the project has been evaluated.

Are you and your employees insured?

We carry Worker’s Compensation on our employees and carry a Commercial Liability policy as well.

Why should I buy my finish materials through a local vendor when I can get them cheaper on-line?

Customer service and warranty!  Additionally, if there is an issue with your product, the local vendor will work with local field representatives until a solution is achieved. Local vendors will also sell replacement/repair parts for the products they represent, whereas on-line companies tend to promote a throw-away-and-replace-it mentality.

Why should I work with a designer?

A designer will implement your vision for your home and bring it to fruition while working within your target budget. They also bring a unique quality to your project, while maintaining your personality. Additionally, a designer will narrow down the overwhelming options in finishes, curating a more manageably sized option group. They are often responsible for the WOW in “WOW-factor”. Note:  we have successfully worked without a designer on a number of projects; it's another option.

Do I need a permit?

The short answer to this is, yes. The reasons why: Permits cover your own safety and well-being because they generate periodic inspections by a third party as the work progresses. Also, if you ever sell your home, a check will likely be performed to see if permits were pulled for remodel work. If the actual home and the permit history do not match up, buyers sometimes abandon the real estate deal. The other likelihood is buyers will offer less for your home based on a lack of permitted work.

How long have you been in business?

A Finished Home, Inc. opened it’s doors in 2007 (after a five year apprenticeship in residential construction was accomplished). Additional experience includes cabinet making and finish work over a period of decades.

How tall are  you?

6’5”, according to my wife!
