Experience the Difference

Our Process

At Urban Refurbishment, we use BuilderTrend, a powerful project management software, to provide our clients with a streamlined experience. With BuilderTrend, clients can access an up-to-date schedule, track the progress of their remodel, communicate with us, manage their selections, address any warranty issues, and make payments – all from one convenient location. The software is accessible from both computers and mobile devices, ensuring that clients can stay connected wherever they go. We understand the importance of transparency and accountability, which is why we provide our clients with regular updates and detailed insights throughout the project. At the end, we copy your BuilderTrend project details to a jump drive for our clients to keep for their records. 

The residential remodeling process typically involves several stages, including planning, design, construction, and completion. Here's a brief overview of each stage:

We love sitting down with homeowners to dive into their dreams and goals for their remodeling project. Armed with some ballpark figures, we'll assess the feasibility of their ideas, craft a budget that works, and begin shaping the project's scope. It's all about turning those aspirations into a concrete plan that will bring their vision to life.

Design and Development:

At this stage, you have the freedom to choose your own design partners, or if you prefer, we can introduce you to our fantastic network of talented local architects and designers. Whether it's collaborating with familiar faces or exploring new creative alliances, Urban Refurbishment will ensure your budget goals are effectively communicated to the design team. We'll also provide updated pricing throughout the selection process and offer practical advice during each round of design revisions.

Once the design is locked in, pertinent selections ordered, and all necessary permits are secured, it's time to roll up our sleeves and dive into the construction phase. We start by protecting the parts of your house that aren't being updated from dust and debris.  Then, out with the old and in with the new!  We have excellent subcontractors who are experienced in remodeling, polite, and efficient.  Using the schedule that we crafted specifically for your project, we work our way through each step, with our focus on your completion date. 

Each week we have an on-site meeting to discuss progress, upcoming trades and any changes made.  Our clients and design partners are invited to join either in-person or via Google Meet.

Wrapping up a project swiftly is of extreme importance to us and our reputation.  Leaning heavily into BuilderTrend and keeping an active eye on your schedule helps us finish on time and keeps our clients confident in our process.




When we reach the exciting milestone of project completion, we'll take a stroll together through your revamped space. Our goal is to ensure that every detail meets your expectations and that you're fully satisfied with the remodel. We understand that there are countless decisions and a wealth of information involved in these projects. That's why we're here to lighten the load and make things easier for you. As a handy and convenient gesture, we'll transfer all the important stuff from BuilderTrend onto a jump drive. It's your very own pocket-sized archive of project documents, providing you with quick and easy access whenever needed.
