Our Process

From the initial consultation to the joy of seeing your completed project, we guide you through every stage with precision and care, ensuring a seamless experience and results that exceed your expectations.

Step 1

Complimentary Phone Consultation

We discuss your project goals, budget, and expected outcomes to ensure that we’re the right remodelers for you. We ask that all decision-makers attend the phone consultation so that all questions and ideas are addressed. Should you choose to move ahead with J. Carsten, you'll sign the Design & Planning Agreement and submit the Design Fee to get the project started.

Step 2

Site Measurement & Design Development

We gather photos and measurements of the project site and assess critical components like plumbing, heating, electrical, and foundation that might impact the project. We explore and review design concepts, ideas, budgets, and timelines to develop a custom schematic design, including a 3-D view of the new space. Please allow 7-10 business days for completion of your design.

Step 3

Design & Estimate Review

We meet with you to discuss the proposed design and your comprehensive project estimate, which includes allowances for yet-to-be-selected materials such as tile, plumbing fixtures, shower glass, or mirrors. These allowances are calculated based on project specifics and industry averages.

Step 4

Contract Finalization & Scheduling

Following the design review, we finalize the construction contract and collect the initial down payment. This contract serves as a comprehensive guide for your project, detailing the preliminary schedule, deadlines for selections, completion timelines, and payment milestones.

Step 5

Trade Partner Visits

We bring our trusted trade partners to your home to assess the space and provide accurate estimates for the necessary work. After refining these estimates, update the project proposal and review it with you for approval.

Step 6

Materials Selection

A customized allowance sheet is prepared to guide you through the selection process in a recommended order.

Step 7


When construction begins, we prioritize the safety and protection of your home, family, and pets. Understanding that construction can be messy and stressful, we commit to clear communication and regular updates to ensure alignment. We clean your space daily, striving to maintain your comfort throughout the construction process.

Step 8

Enjoy Your Results

We take pride in our commitment to quality, from the products and materials we use to the craftsmanship we deliver. This ensures your project meets your expectations and provides long-lasting value. To further provide peace of mind, we offer a 1-Year warranty on all items purchased and installed through us.
