New Creations is the REAL DEAL!! – We recently had New Creations remodel our kitchen and we could not be happier with the results! Roy, Jeremy, and Troy managed the project to perfection and the craftsmanship and attention to detail are perfect.
New Creations has a beautiful design center that is functional and allows you to create a vision of your project by piecing together the different aspects of the remodel. We were able to match a countertop, backsplash, and cupboards to our liking and see them in person at their design center. This is very valuable in making such a big decision and it gives you peace of mind as you move into the project. The web based portal to track project milestones and progress was very helpful and it also allows the customer to input information or ask questions. We loved being able to check the site on a daily basis and track the project ourselves without always having to make a phone call to the New Creations Team.
Troy could not have been more helpful and caring throughout the project and he stayed in touch with us on a daily basis. Jeremy and Roy both have a great ability to create a vision that is very helpful in the design phase of the project and they do a great job of making sure everyone is comfortable before taking action. They were more than willing to work around our dog and each of the sub contractors were very nice, clean, and meticulous.
The project moved fast and they limited the time that we were without electricity and water - this was much appreciated :)
We highly recommend New Creations for a lot of reasons but most importantly, they do exactly what they say they are going to do. They bring high quality work, a huge customer focus, and a level of integrity and caring that sets them apart from other contractors. These guys truly will make sure every last detail is to your liking and they won't stop until you are 100% satisfied. These characteristics are hard to find in contractors these days but New Creations is not the norm. They are simply the best in the business and the REAL DEAL when it comes to remodels. Thanks again to Roy, Jeremy, Troy, and the whole staff!!Read More
Love my kitchen – I used New Creations to remodel my kitchen with new granite, back-splash, sink and new hardware for my cabinets. I was very satisfied with the whole process. Roy Faust of New Creations had an estimate for me the same day along with lots of information and ideas. It took 1 to 2 weeks to receive other estimates from other companies. The staff is very professional and easy to work with, they completed the job on time and I did not experience any problems. I also received a call from Leah from New Creations every afternoon to follow up on the days work. So I never had to track anyone down. I would recommend New Creations to anyone thinking of remodeling their kitchenRead More

Best Kitchen/Bath Remodel in Austin – No need to look any further.
We hired Roy and New Creations in September to remodel our kitchen and bath. They were efficient, responsible, and professional, but most importantly...they did what they said they would do.
We were provided with a line item estimate and the final cost was not a penny more. Great attention was given to every detail while each and every one of our concerns were addressed along the way. They have a design center with hundreds of tiles, countertops, etc. to choose from with professional advice along the way. They will bring samples to your home so you can get an idea of what the finished product will look like.
At one point, we had received some back splash tile for the kitchen from a supplier that didn't quite line up right. Roy immediately removed the tile, re-ordered from the supplier, and re-installed it. That is the type of support I can live with. Please know that if anything is not done to your satisfaction, New Creations will do it over until you are satisfied.
Attention is given to every detail of the project.
One other feature New Creations provides is a calendar of events for your project. You can log on to their website and see what work is scheduled for each day.
We would certainly hire them again and probably will for some other remodeling projects we have planned.
Bottom line here is New Creations will do it right. They will not nickel and dime you to death like some contractors and you will have peace of mind knowing your finished product be exactly as you envisioned it.Read More
Committed to customer service & satisfaction - highly recommend! – Roy, Troy & their team exceeded our expectations, from start to finish! Beginning with our initial meetings to get our estimate and carrying through the entire project, Roy and his team were a pleasure to work with. They continuously strived to ensure we were 100% satisfied with every detail. The New Creations team was trustworthy - which was essential for our kitchen remodel, given that there was no way my husband or I could be present at all times. The quality of the workmanship provided by Greg and Appolo was superior. To top it off, Troy and team always ensured our kitchen was cleaned up at the end of each day. Our project was completed on time and ultimately with less disruption than we anticipated for this type of project. We couldn't be happier! Thank you New Creations for giving us our dream kitchen at an affordable price!Read More

My kitchen is awesome! – It has been 3 years since my remodel and I am as happy with the work as I was the day it was complete. The crew was professional and curtious. When they worked, they did their best not to interupt our lives. Not to mention, the work was done quickly and the craftmanship was stellar.
Use New Creations to invest in your home. You will love them and your new space!Read More
I used New Creations for a kitchen remodel 2 years ago. Roy was great about helping me through the process of choosing granite and tiles to suit my style. He kept everything within my budget but always gave me options for upgrades if I wanted them.
His team was very professional and my home was always cleaned up at the end of the day. The job was finished in a timely manner and follow-up was excellent. I was so pleased that I have now signed on with New Creations to have my master bath updated.
My master bath remodel is now completed and once again New Creations came through and gave me the bath I've always dreamed of. Even though the remodel took place around the holidays, schedules were kept and there was minimal disruption of daily life. Roy and his team helped choose exactly the tile combinations I had in my mind and also gave me good suggestions on ways to compliment my choices. Tile work by Apollo and his assistant was wonderful, the vanities that Greg created are awesome and everything was done with little disturbance or mess. All the New Creations employees are professional, pleasant and easy to work with. Thanks again to New Creations for the bath they created for me!Read More
New Creations Custom Kitchen & Bath Remodeling – My husband and I were very pleased with the outcome of our kitchen cabinets. The entire job was done timely and everyone was very professional. Roy followed up to make sure we were happy with the results and Greg and other workers were very flexible with our schedule.
They did an outstanding job and I get so many compliments on my kitchen.Read More

Kitchen Renovation Review
The project of totally rebuilding a kitchen, usually the most complex of all home remodeling experiences, can certainly be a daunting task. The reconstruction of a kitchen means not having the use of what is probably the home's central activity area for many weeks, if not months. Any homeowner considering this upgrade may want to engage in the services of a professional remodeling design team. This team can provide new design choices to consider, access to shopping options not generally available, and can coordinate the multitude of rebuilding activities. Key to the choice of kitchen designers is assessing how effectively you are able to communicate with them regarding your vision for the new kitchen, as well as their level of design expertise and their dependability.
It was with these considerations in mind that we decided to choose the New Creations design team. Roy and Erin really listened to our ideas, and the reasoning behind them, for the new kitchen. Erin's knowledge of many design options helped to guide us towards the end goals we had in mind. The planning stage was iterative and took a few months to ensure that we had nailed down all the salient details prior to starting up the actual rebuilding. The team's resulting new kitchen drawings provided the detailed vision we would be aiming for.
Once the teardown and reconstruction work had begun, the team's professionalism manifested itself in many ways. Roy provided us a link to his scheduling program so we would know what to expect regarding upcoming activities. Apollo, the project manager, ensured that the kitchen area was sealed off, that all the household items in all adjacent spaces were covered in plastic and that an alternative meal preparation area in the dining room was set up. Reconstruction activities were then ongoing: rebuilding the walls, replumbing, laying down the new floor, installation & painting of new cabinets, electrical work for lighting and numerous outlets, an island table with a built-in electrical socket, installation of appliances, building a new venting path to the outside for the stovetop, and many more.
Work proceeded at a reasonable pace. Nevertheless, in any major remodeling project, unexpected issues or delays always emerge. Roy would always respond in these situations and assure us that "we will make this right" - words that actually were backed up by the actions needed to address the situations at hand.
After about 3Â½ months of activity (actually 4 chronological months, allowing for the Christmas break) construction of the new kitchen had progressed far enough along where, in a limited way, we could start using it again. The new appliances and much improved workflow were impressive enough, but with the new floors, cabinets, countertops and light fixtures - well, it just looked amazing, and reflected the commitment by Roy, Erin, Apollo and their team to the high quality of this project. In addition to the kitchen area, there were other home projects that they also helped with, but just suffice it to say here that we greatly appreciated their months-long commitment to a project we will always be proud of. It was a pleasure working with the New Creations design team, and we have no hesitation at all in recommending them for any and all home redesign projects.Read More
New Creations Review - Outstanding! – What sets New Creations apart from their competition? The journey, the guidance and the final product all made possible by a professional team and a great group of sub-contractors.
The Journey: I’m not sure anyone really goes into a remodeling absolutely knowing every detail of how they want their kitchen to be transformed. The New Creations Team has a design center that really helps you get started and everyone from the New Creations Team to the sub-contractors will help you with suggestions along the way. No one really wants their kitchen demolished either. I think New Creations needs to come up with a new term for this part of the process because we never felt like our kitchen was demolished… just removed. When we came home on day one, our old kitchen (appliances, sheet rock, everything) was gone. I mean totally removed from the property and the work Site was very clean. This is the way it was every day of the process. In many ways, the only way we knew sub-contractors had been in our house was the progress made on the remodeling.
For us, another critical part of the journey was understanding how the project would unfold. While they were proactive in keeping us informed, you can always contact one of the New Creations Team members by phone or email (and they are quick to respond). They also link you into the project planning process through web-based Basecamp. This lets you see what is being planned each day. Your inputs are captured as actions and assigned to members of their Team. Any issue that came up was addressed in a timely fashion.
When I reflect back on the remodeling process, it really is a journey that includes a few changes in direction. I found that when we did want to add or change from the original plan, New Creations was very professional. If we did deviate from the original contract, New Creations was very quick to get us a quote and worked to keep the project on schedule.
The other critical element of the journey is will they complete your kitchen when they say they will. New Creations committed they would be complete in 8 weeks. At the end of 6 weeks, all that was left to be done was minor touch-up. The attention to detail was outstanding. The New Creations Team picked up on several small items we missed and had them corrected.
The Sub-contractors: New Creations has done an excellent job of picking the sub-contractors they work with. The most impressive of which was the cabinet, granite and sheetrock/painter subs. The cabinets are stunning, the granite was laid out with the grain structure exactly the way we had envisioned and the paint/texturing matched our existing walls perfectly. We also really appreciated the crew that did the demolition and clean-up to get the project started on the right foot.
The Final Product: All of the above doesn’t matter if you are not happy with the final product. I think we can honestly say that New Creations worked with us to produce a kitchen that actually exceeded our expectations.
Remodeling is really a Team effort between you and the Contractor you choose. You need to make many decisions and actively participate along the way to make it a success. The Contractor needs to make the experience and final product what you envisioned it to be. We found the Team at New Creations to be excellent Team members that helped us realize the kitchen of our dreams. Roy, Troy and Jeremy all have strengths that complement each other… a special thanks to all of you!Read More
Couldn’t be happier with my kitchen remodel – Last fall, New Creations did a complete remodel of my kitchen. From beginning to end everything was done on time, within budget and with tremendous professionalism. I am very picky and slow to make up my mind, but Roy and his crew were always patient and accommodating. In the end, I couldn’t be happier with my kitchen. The design is functional and fits my needs perfectly. The craftsmanship of the cabinets is first rate. The tile work is exceptional. And, just a few weeks ago – nine months after my kitchen was finished – I called Roy when I noticed a slight problem. Two days later my problem was fixed. Roy is all about customer service. He says he stands behind his work and he does. I would recommend Roy and New Creations to anyone looking to remodel their kitchen.Read More
Kitchen: Complete; Customer: Very Satisfied – We started looking at Kitchen remodeling companies during the summer (2009). Our challenge was to update a 16 year old kitchen with new cabinets, granite counter tops, and updated lighting. We also wanted to retexture of the downstairs “popcorn” ceiling. After visiting with several remodeling companies over the summer, we decided to go with Roy at New Creations. Why? Several reasons: we were impressed with the online feedback from the customers, website photos of past projects, a call to a past New Creations customer and Roy’s openness to answer the numerous questions with regards to his past remodeling jobs and overall business structure. But the one thing that really captured us before we signed the contract was the visit to the showroom and the discussion with Roy’s team. We could really feel the true commitment to us (the customer).
We just recently finished the kitchen (October 2009) with new custom cherry cabinets, under-cabinet lighting, tile back splash, and granite counters. The one common message from our family, friends and neighbors is “WOW! Is that the same kitchen?”
The kitchen looks like a photo straight out of a magazine – perfect and met all the requirements we set out to accomplish. Also, the removal of the “popcorn” ceiling makes the entire downstairs look like a different house.
Roy (owner), Trevor (on site manager), Apollo (tile), Greg (cabinets), Ray (ceiling and paint) and Troy (office manager) were extremely supportive through the always unforeseen surprises that come along with every remodeling job. The schedule from Troy was constantly updated and the overall team’s communication was outstanding. Roy and his team come highly recommended from our perspective.Read More
New Creations - a company you can count on! Even well managed businesses will experience glitches relative to labor and suppliers from time to time. As a business consultant I am quite aware that the true caliber and ethics of a business & their staff become crystal clear when they face difficult times, not when all is going according to plan. Ours was a project that encountered a few delays and stumbling blocks, yet, Roy remained focused and dedicated, doing his very best and honoring each and every commitment. If one is looking for a kitchen remodeling company that truly delivers a beautiful end product and that does not play games with pricing, then they would be well served to consider New Creations. We love our new kitchen!Read More
Look No Further. New Creations Delivers! – My husband and I want to express our sincere appreciation for all that Roy Faust and New Creations did to give us the kitchen we have longed for.
Roy showed up for our first meeting with an enthusiastic knowledge of what could be, with a great design eye and a belief in his crew to do the job he promised us would be done. And what a job they did. The results are so much more than we ever expected! Our kitchen is absolutely beautiful! We love it! From new floors to new ceilings and everything in between, the crews at New Creations did fabulous jobs with impeccable craftsmanship. They were courteous, respectful, on time, and just plain great at their individual craft. A quick thanks to Greg for my absolutely beautiful cabinets… and the stain was perfection!
And then there is the customer service. Roy started it off very well indeed, and Joshua and Troy continued it without skipping a beat. They made us feel very well cared for and comfortable as our house was being demolished around us, as well as, while it was being built up anew. They listened. They made suggestions. They calmed our fears. They were our friends. They sincerely made us feel that we were the center of their attention. How rare is that these days?
We also had the pleasure to work with Julia on our design decisions. We would pick out products, tiles, etc. and then get second thoughts. Julia was patient and kind as she gently guided us through what can be a nerve racking assignment. ..especially for those of us who have trouble with making decisions. Thanks Julia. It all came together beautifully.
And have I mentioned that they came in not only on time but on budget. I kept expecting that a final bill for an additional 10 – 20% would be coming my way, as that is what I was told to expect from most contractors. It didn’t happen. Roy gave me a quote and the job was done as he quoted it would be. I was also given a 6 – 8 week window to complete the job. I expected it to probably run over by a week, maybe two or three. But it didn’t. It was complete in less than 6. I was amazed and delighted to say the least.
Roy’s integrity, from day one, was what we banked our money on. Our returns were more than expected.
Thanks to all of ya’ll at New Creations for making our home, oh so much more beautiful and enjoyable.Read More
We used New Creations to remodel our our kitchen and got wonderful results. We bought somewhat of a fixer- upper last summer and the first room that had to be remodeled was the kitchen. They put in granite countertops, travertine tile backsplash, a new sink and some additional cabnetry. The granite looks seamless all around, the tile is perfect and the additional cabnetry matched our existing almost perfectly. The results were great. The job was completed quickly and the end price was the same as Roy had quoted me in the beginning (except what I added on). Roy always answered the phone when I called or quickly returned my calls. We were on vacation during the remodel and I felt comfortable leaving the keys to them. We returned to a beautiful kitchen! We would use them again.Read More
Our perfect kitchen – Using New Creation's showroom it is easy to visualize the various combinations of colors and materials. Roy also worked with the appliance and fixtures vendors so we got builder's prices, saving thousands. The employees and contractors for tear out, cabinets, electricity, tile, painting and appliance installation were on time, professional, and the painter even spent extra time touching up some things where we saw no problems. And the cabinets are especially beautiful. We plan to use New Creations again for our bathroom.Read More
New Creations.. Professional in all areas.. they ROCK – I had gotten several bids from other contractors. Roy's bid was quick and professional. He had no problem with giving me an itemized and detailed bid, based on my budget I gave him. Several other contractors just gave an overall price and what they would do for that price. They would/could not give a breakdown. One kept trying to get me to do more than my budget would allow.
Everyone was courteous that I worked with..from employees to contractors. I appreciated someone from New Creations checking on the work, as it went along, from deconstruction to the finished room. My job was not one of their largest, I'm sure, but was a big deal for me.
I was excited to come home every day and see what had been done that day. Their craftsmen clean up after themselves as they go along.
Even though I kept the same applicances ..my kitchen ROCKS . I have had so many compliments. I would not hesitate to recommend this company, their employees and their contractors.
Thank you Roy, Troy, Apollo, Juan, Joshua, Greg.
Once I figure out how to download my photo's from my camera.. I will post a before and after. :-)Read More

FULL Service Kitchen and Bath Contractors – My wife and I just finished a full blown "complete gut" custom remodel on our condo kitchen and master bath located in Tarrytown. The title says it all...these guys are a FULL service contractor and will do design, help you select materials, make color/pattern recommendations, write fixed bid quotes, manage subcontractors, and warrant the finished product. We are now enjoying the end result and get compliments on the remodel every time someone comes to the house. If we decided to sell the condo tomorrow, I think we would get back every penny spent.
Before you sign a thing, Roy will provide a detailed quotation and plans. I was relieved to get to the end of the project and owe exactly what was agreed to. We bid out the project and asked around and typically contractors don't have the ability to draw up detailed plans so you have to hire an architect for even the simplest cabinet design, which can be pricey. Not the case with New Creations.
This was the first time I went through a process like this and I have to say that while it was painful to live in a house with no kitchen and master bath, it was well worth the wait. With all the great compliments, there are some pain points that is characteristic of any remodel from what I hear. In some cases, attention to detail was overlooked in the design phase and the team had to make modifications on the fly. I would have liked to see those details worked out ahead of time. All I can say is ask tons of questions and review work often. If you see something that doesn't look right, speak up. That goes for any contractor.
Roy has built quite a system with New Creations and he has some great people working for him...Jeremy, you are the man. Would definitely recommend them and use them again on the next project.Read More

What happens when your conceptual visions of renovation meet the realities of construction execution? If you are fortunate, you meet Roy Faust of New Creations.
I had planned the renovation of my guest room and two upstairs baths down to the tiniest detail ( I am that detail oriented!). When I initially met with Roy and showed him what I wanted, I immediately sensed that I had gained a partner in my plans. He understood my goals and assured me that I could get what I wanted. And I did!!
Troy Hester managed my project with a degree of determination, expertise, and compassion that was above and beyond the norm. He made my vision become a reality.
Apollo, Paul, and the rest of the team worked competently and creatively to make this project work in a timely and professional manner.
As with any renovation project there were some surprises ,some set-backs, and some adjustments. The few that arose were quickly and satisfactorily addressed and remedied. I was completely happy with the handling of these items.
In terms of quality, vision, competence, timeliness, value for dollars, and just generally good experience, I recommend New Creations without any reservations. Not only would I refer them to my friends, I am already planning for my next renovation project with Roy and the New Creations team!Read More

Roy Faust and New Creations remodeled my kitchen in 2008 and I am still happy with it! He is super honest and ethical and is dedicated to his customers' happiness. I recommend him 200%! I would trust him to do any and all work on my home.Read More
Well Handled BIG remodeling project. You want these guys. – We hired Roy and his team to handle a remodel of a 30+ year old kitchen, living room , entry way,bath and dining room along with tiling from back to front. Our project was a big one, and comprehensive. We had his crew install multiple windows, electrical, countertop, custom cabinetry, and an original cabinet piece along with raising ceiling, moving ducts, and installing new lighting. They also tiled about 1000 square feet.
From the onset, Roy and Troy and their staff were on a set schedule. We received weekly and at times daily progress updates which helped us know what to expect next. We are a big family with a dog and it was necessary for the timing to be right so that all parties knew what to expect. The company's strict adherence to their plans and informing us of any changes and modifying the schedule allowed us to all go along together. The subs that he used were appropriate, respectful, and consistent in keeping with Roy's overall plan, and you could tell that they had been both well informed of expectations, as well as trained on a consistent level of customer service that the company intended to provide. Any concerns that we had were addressed quickly. Any issues or conflicts that arose were dealt with directly, without excuses. The team's handling of the project top to bottom left little to be desired, and at the end of it all, even though we did this project during the hottest part of theRead More
summer, I would have done it again. At all times we felt that there was an available person to handle a concern or arrive at a resolution. They take their work very personally, and it showed in our satisfaction and in the end product. I highly endorse Roy, Troy and their team for this type of work, and will add that they are pleasant and professional to deal with as well.
