Urban Refurbishment is a full–service remodeling contractor based in the Twin Cities.

Urban Refurbishment is among the Twin Cities top home remodeling firms. 
 We are a full-service remodeling contractor that specializes in kitchens, bathrooms and new additions using environmentally friendly building practices.  We offer construction management, great communication, in-house design, and top quality workmanship.

Our Process

 1. On-Site Consultation

Our first step is an on-site consultation to meet you, see your house and hear about your project needs.  We take pictures, measurements and notes to aid in our pricing.  

2. Project Presentation

The next step is to present you with a preliminary investment number. If re-configuring a space a rough design layout will also be presented.

3. Design

Now that we know the final scope we create detailed construction drawings.  We will work together to define materials and finishes.

4. Investment and Contract

Here is where we make it official. The design is complete, we can gather subcontractor costs and time needed to perform work.  We create a schedule, ask you to sign a contract and make a deposit.

5. Project Delivery

For many the most exciting part of the process. With a construction schedule finalized, we procure materials and begin the project.  During construction we regularly meet you on-site to answer any questions you may have.

6. Final Walk-Through

Just because construction is done doesn't mean we are. After project completion we walk through the project with the homeowners to be sure they are satisfied and that no detail has been overlooked.
