We are EXTREMELY happy with the work done by New Creations on our kitchen. Our experience started with Design where Erin worked with us in every aspect of the design and never complained or rushed us when we changed our minds. She accompanied us on all of the supplier visits and was instrumental in us being so happy with the final results. She also staid engaged throughout the project. The Construction phase went just as well. The quality of the workmanship was top notch. No mater how much mess was made, they cleaned up the job site EVERY DAY. The team was always checking in to make sure we were happy with what we saw and it was obvious that they really cared about us, our kitchen and making sure we had a great experience. Roy send us an email with an progress update and next steps almost everyday, this in addition to maintaining a complete project list and calendar online that we could review and made our own comments. A couple of time we wanted to make changes in the design after the project was underway and while this is never optimum, Roy and his team went above and beyond to make sure that this process exceeded our expectations. The level of communication, customer focus and quality of the project were outstanding. If you want the best that Austin has to offer in custom Kitchens. I have NO hesitation in recommending New Creations.Read More

Anxiety-free Remodeling Experience – Due to some structural limitations, our kitchen cabinetry had to be custom built. We chose New Creations because of 1) their business process model and warranties, 2) their flexibility in working with both our design and budget constraints, and 3) their many rave and recent reviews.
Every member of the NC Team was professional, flexible, creative, and prompt in communicating and resolving questions or challenges. Additionally, as experienced remodelers (not new construction) they appreciate architectural style versus popular trends, can anticipate potential issues in existing homes, and, blessedly, they respect that we 'live' here.
My husband and I were exceedingly pleased with how easy the entire process was, unlike our prior contractor experiences. Working with Troy, Greg, et al, we were able to smoothly coordinate third party tradesman work into the schedule, including my husband and I doing some work ourselves. The most stressful point was deciding on a paint color!
We are very happy with how the finished kitchen looks and functions, and that it was completed by the target date. We would recommend Roy and New Creations without hesitation.Read More
Our Remodeled Kitchen Is Wonderful! – We had Roy and the New Creations crew remodel our
30 year old kitchen and are really pleased with how their work updated and revitalised the most
popular room in our home. We liked our solid wood cabinets and wanted to try to match new
door additions to existing cabinets. We were not sure it could be done to our satisfaction. How
wrong we were! Our friends can't tell the new from the old, and Greg, the cabinet guy, really
worked wonders with all our ideas. We were very impressed with the skilled artisans making up
the New Creations team. Mike, the project manager, checked on the project every day and Troy
made sure our several requests regarding the work site and our neighbors were met. For
example, we didn't want loud music blasting from radios; we wanted the work site cleaned up
at the end of each day; we asked them to keep the number of crew trucks and cars to a
minimum and that our and the neighbor's driveways be kept free. New Creations exceeded our
expectations in all regards.
We are truly pleased with the finished product and would happily and enthusiasticallyRead More
recommend Roy Faust's New Creations to anyone thinking about kitchen and bath remodeling.
We hope to remodel our master bath in the coming months and are keeping Roy and his team
on our speed dial.

Roy and Troy of New Creations provided a total demo and remodel of our kitchen, including exterior wall work. We changed a door/bay window into a sliding door, took down upper cabinets to open the kitchen to the family room, and widened doorways. All new custom cherry cabinets and soapstone countertops. New electrical box in garage and outside, new lighting and electrical plugs/switches. New Creations was the general contractor and planned everything out and assisted with the general design and features.
The entire remodel took 8 weeks. During that time the space was always kept clean and tidy. The space they used in our garage for various items was always clean and well organized. Every subcontractor they brought in was professional, polite, punctual, and answered all my questions with a good attitude. They had all done work for New Creations before and knew their expectations for a clean and professional job. Troy was always checking the work and making sure things were done as close to perfect as possible. If something was off, he would have the contractor come back in and change/fix it until it was what we wanted. Those were all very minor issues. Apollo, their tile guy, is amazing and really takes pride in his work. The online scheduling software they use, BaseCamp, really helps you understand what's scheduled for each day, who will be there, what outstanding questions there were or materials left to be chosen. Nothing was ever forgotten or accidentally left off the list. Roy and Troy always responded to emails and calls promptly and always had a positive attitude. They let me see 2 jobs they had completed (and speak to the homeowners) and one job that was nearing completion. It really helped me feel confident and trust that they would do a great job with our kitchen - and they did! We love our new kitchen!Read More
We love our new kitchen!! – We couldn't be happier with our kitchen remodel. Roy and the NC team took a 1967 L-shaped galley style kitchen (with original appliances!!) and turned it into an open, sophisticated space that we enjoy daily. From the outset, Roy,Troy, and the entire NC team were extremely organized. Every detail had a line item on the contract, so there was very little "nickel and diming." This was a big project which included demolition, window and door installation, wood floor installation, new AC ducts, custom cabinets, granite countertops, and a custom granite table top. They even helped to rework the support in the attic to accommodate the removal of one load bearing wall.
The NC team was phenomenal. James, the electrician, took my call during the UT/OU game to help solve a electrical problem. Lisa, the floor and tile diva, was amazing and always accessible. Larry, the plumber, solved and issue for us in our attic that we were completely unaware of. Greg, the cabinet guru, stayed late into the night to help solve a framing issue. Jeremy, my project manager, was invaluable in his assistance. He was always available via email or text and always followed up with any issue we were managing. Troy, our scheduling superhero, always kept us up to date on the who, what, where, why and when. And then there's Roy...whose excitement and persistence about his work is uncontainable. Roy's patience and guidance through a sometimes difficult project put me at ease. And did I mention the cleanliness of ALL of the crews??? There was never a speck of dust or a piece of trash left behind by ANY of the subs that NC employs.
No company or project is perfect, which is the only reason for my 4 stars, and we are still managing some small post-completion details. Yet even after the project is done and the bill has been paid, I am amazed at the response I get from the NC team in helping us resolve these issues. The entire team takes great pride in what they do, and it shows! Thanks to New Creations for a job well done!Read More

As I was looking for my next new home, I fell in love with a home that had a kitchen remodeled by New Creations. It was amazing with exceptional design in which you could tell had been professionally executed. In our search for a new home, we ended up buying a house that was going to need to be renovated and immediately I called Roy. I told him I had seen his work first hand and wanted him to renovate our kitchen! Roy agreed to work with us although our situation would be unique in that not only was the kitchen being renovated, but the entire house was under construction. Roy and his entire team far exceeded our hopes for a dream kitchen! In working with different construction teams for the last 4 months, I can say that without a doubt New Creations stands out for their ability to communicate, execute, and make you feel like you are their only client! Roy and Troy were always available when we had any questions or concerns and that is invaluable when it comes to designing your dream home! Apollo, who did the tile work and punch list went above and beyond his role as well. Everyone on his team was professional, friendly, polite, and worked as though it was more than just a job for them. They all take pride in their work and it shows! I would not hesitate to recommend New Creations to anyone!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 the 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.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
Remodeling done the RIGHT way. – In a day of many industry and service folks showing indifference and offering shrugged shoulders, these guys shine for listening, offering solutions, creativity, and problem solving when the scope of the project changes. They have assembled a vetted collection of trades people who know how to get the job done. The cabinets, in particular, are amongst some of the best made and beautifully crafted cabinets that I have seen. Solid wood with great detail to craftsmanship make them a joy to use and look at. The compliments from friends keep flowing about the remodel. Roy and I met and discussed the project and planning multiple times before starting and the cabinet manufacturer offered suggestions about the creation of unique wall that turned out to be a wonderful focal point that ties in wonderfully with the kitchen design. Troy's hands on detail to the project was also quite remarkable in managing the day to day scheduling and ensuring that things were on time and in place. In a remodel there are always going to be surprises, but the nice thing about dealing with these folks is that they become an ally for getting a solution in place as quickly and efficiently as possible. The end result has been a beautiful kitchen that greatly exceeds what I thought was possible for my space. You can't go wrong with having these guys manage your remodel if you want the piece of mind that things being done the right way with great attention to detail.Read More
Top Notch Countertops! – Roy, of New Creations Remodeling recently measured and brought out samples of granite for our kitchen counters. After viewing samples, Troy, an employee of Roy's met my husband and me at the granite showroom to pick out the actual slab to be installed. Next, a representative from the granite showroom measured again to make sure the measurements were accurate before cutting the beautiful slab we chose. The old countertops were removed and the new ones installed within a couple of weeks. The results were amazing! We appreciate
Roy's professionalism, honesty, and price. We felt he was competitive and his employees were trustworthy. I would definitely recommend New Creations for your remodeling needs.Read More
The house we always wanted! – It is never easy to undertake a remodeling project. Instead of doing just our kitchen, we opted to remodel our entire downstairs which included our kitchen, dining room, living room, master bedroom and bathroom. We essentially packed up our belongings and moved upstairs for 4 months. But what an amazing investment it was. We are now the envy of all of our friends and neighbors. New Creations did a fantastic job with our remodel. They were quick to adjust to our last minute requests and slight design adjustments and the completed project/ workmanship was just fantastic. Our custom cabinets in the kitchen/bathroom in particular are absolutely gorgeous. We were pleased with the end result but also experienced excellent customer service from Roy and Troy throughout the project. We are very happy customers and now look forward to taking on our upstairs in the near future!Read More

He took my ideas and then added things that I never would have thought of to turn the cabinets into something FABULOUS! Everybody who sees them goes OOooooohhhh!!! His attention to detail is amazing!! I am SO IMPRESSED with Roy and New Creations. I wholeheartedly recommend New Creations ... you won't be disappointed.Read More

Excellent experience with Roy and Troy as we did our first ever complete kitchen renovation. Very well organized process for seeing us from start to finish with the project. Very experienced team that handled everything, even small hiccups, with professionalism and a focus on getting things done the right way. Always available to discuss alternatives in the structural design and help to come up with the best solution. Very flexible in accepting our interior design choices as we consulted with our own interior designer. Very happy with the results - a larger, beautiful, and very functional kitchen!Read More
Amazing results AND EXPERIENCE. Highly recommended! – As a first-time home remodeler, I was surprised at how emotional the whole experience can be. You're handling countless deadline-driven decisions, surprises, expenses and strangers in your home. Yet somehow, thanks to the great planning and communication of Roy and Troy at NC, I can genuinely say that I did not stress out one bit. Not only do they offer a stellar service--my kitchen is stunning--at a very reasonable price, but they bring a whole lot more to the table. They are genuine, creative, trustworthy people who are passionate about what they do, and are deeply committed to the homeowner's positive experience. Every question or concern I had was addressed completely and in a timely manner. Every potential setback was met with problem solving and positivity. I cannot recommend them more enthusiastically!Read More
Note: This review was originally written in 2010 after New Creations remodeled our kitchen. We used this same company again in 2013 to remodel our master bathroom and had another positive experience.
New Creations is the Complete Package – Remodeling our kitchen and powder room was a big decision and a big investment.
We chose New Creations because they were friendly, low-pressure, and responsive from the start. We had several meetings with Roy, met all the contractors, heard their ideas, received an estimate, visited the showroom, and visited a kitchen they renovated before we even signed any agreement with them!
It was intimidating to choose all the elements for our new kitchen, but New Creations made it easy. They didn’t have a designer at the time, but Roy shared his experience and knowledge of emerging trends in the industry. It was helpful to see working models in the showroom and have large samples (2’ x 2’) of cabinet types and paint colors available. Taking my chosen samples home with me to move around the space and see at different times of the day with the changing natural light made the selection easier. And later, after the cabinets and counters were installed, when I began to doubt my wall paint selection, Troy cheerfully delivered all the neutral samples that I requested (perhaps 20 or more?) to view again.
Throughout, Troy did a wonderful job of choreographing the different contractors and communicating with us. In addition to regular email updates, we were able to log-in to see what activities were scheduled and read the communication with the contractors. With 2 full-time work schedules, a toddler, and a dog to plan around, it was very important that we knew what to expect each day.
All the contractors were respectful of our home and seemed to understand that we were still living there from demolition to completion. They kept the mess contained and tidied up before leaving each day. They were also very collaborative. We met with each contractor at least twice during the planning stages and communicated several times while the project was in full-swing. They answered all our questions, put us at ease, offered suggestions, and were responsive to any concerns that we had. Winston, James, Larry, Lisa, and Manuel (and their crews) are all very professional and friendly. They seemed very knowledgeable in their areas and as concerned as we were to create a space that would meet our family’s needs.
Roy prepared us in advance to expect hiccups so we weren’t completely surprised when some did occur. What was reassuring, however, was that someone from the team always responded to our phone calls (even when they were later in the evening!), they offered professional solutions, and never appeared to be put-out.
New Creations was thorough and honest. In our final walk through with Roy, he pointed out small imperfections that we hadn’t noticed and he identified a feature which we had paid for, but hadn’t received. He made sure that this was remedied within the week. In the end, it was another example of their attention to detail and pride in their work.
At first, we were surprised by the estimated costs to remodel our kitchen. But 8 months later (9 weeks of construction) - after seeing the amount of coordination, the number of professional individual contributors, and the quality of the materials involved - we are delighted with the results and feel that it was well worth the investment.Read More
Amazing Kitchen Remodeling from a Highly Ethical Company – In 2008 we fully remodeled our kitchen with New Creations and earlier this year our two bathrooms were completely redone with fantastic results. Working with Roy on the design details and Troy at the project site was very enjoyable and even when issues arose they ALWAYS worked to resolve them with the customers best interests in mind. Both the kitchen and the bathrooms are unique, customized to our needs, impressive in quality, and will significantly increase our houses value. Thanks again to New Creations for the great work you do.Read More
Incredible experience with New Creations – The New Creations team led by Roy, Troy, and the crew truly turned our outdated kitchen into our dream kitchen. Every aspect of the remodel was on time and just as we discussed. Roy's ideas, plans and willingness to listen to what we wanted made the experience so positive. From the early stages of not knowing exactly what we wanted we were put at ease. Roy was able to pull together an incredible design based on what we liked and disliked. The crew was outstanding. Not only was their work top quality, they were all so careful to clean the work area each day. Troy kept us updated every step of the way. We had a clear plan as to when projects were being done, who was going to be at the house, and every question we had was promptly answered. We truly love our new kitchen and feel blessed to have had such an amazing team of professionals working to complete the project.
We would highly recommend them for your kitchen remodeling needs.Read More

Our home was built in 1982. The primary purpose of our project was to completely remodel the kitchen to create a brighter more functional space and update all the appliances. A makeover of the adjacent dining room was also planned.
We have been through several small remodeling projects during 27 years in our home and neither of us relished the idea of trying to find suitable contractors or acting as project managers and on-site supervisors again.
New Creations Custom Kitchen and Bath solved that problem for us. We were impressed before our very first meeting when Roy Faust called us to say he would be ten minutes late and “would that be alright?”
New Creations is a high end custom remodeling company offering “turn key” kitchen and bath remodeling services. Their goal is to provide outstanding service and craftsmanship. They didn’t over sell, they did what they promised.
From the design process through tear down and construction, everyone involved with the project was professional and considerate of the fact they were working in our home. Since we live with twelve indoor only cats, that was of special importance to us.
In fact, being “cat resistant” was a major design concern for our kitchen. Roy spent a lot of time learning about our lifestyle as part of his design process. Unlike some designers, he does not try to force his vision on you, but rather tries to pull your ideas out and help you make the decisions.
He is not afraid to suggest bold ideas and if he doesn’t like something, he will tell you. He makes the design process collaborative and fun and is not afraid to consult with another designer to make something perfect.
A highly detailed approach to planning the project with the goal of having all materials on hand prior to starting is an important part of the company’s success. Taking that approach minimizes the risk of delay and allows the customer to see the chosen products before they are installed.
An on-site meeting with all contractors several weeks prior to the planned start date allowed us to meet each of them in person and gave them a chance to evaluate the workspace.
That meeting revealed we would need to upgrade our electric service for the cooktop and convection oven we planned to install and allowed plenty of time to have the work done prior to the project start date.
We were informed there would inevitably be problems along the way, but for us not to worry, they would solve the problems. Again, that is exactly what they did.
New Creations constantly tries to improve their process. Project manager, Troy Hester, was continually on site seeking solutions to every problem and soliciting our input.
The on line system used to schedule contractors and keep customers informed works well and Troy quickly responded to every email inquiry or phone call we made.
We can’t say enough about the craftsmen working for New Creations. Their focus was always on delivering a quality product and satisfying the customer. Compromises sometimes must be made because original house construction is rarely perfect. In fact, I’m not sure there is a square or plumb wall in our house!
However, through it all, Roy, Troy and everyone involved in our project went out of their way to make sure we were happy with the results. Working with New Creations was a marvelous experience. We would recommend them without hesitation. The completed kitchen is even better then we imagined it would be.Read More
Roy and Troy were very open about the renovation process and worked diligently with our timeline. We appreciated their input towards the kitchen design to guide us to our ideal kitchen while staying within our budget. They provided an online calendar for us to know when work was expected to be completed (i.e. cabinet install, countertop measurements, etc). They have a great team behind them as well. Our expectations were certainly met & we would recommend this company to others.Read More
Highly Recommend this Kitchen Remodeler! – New Creations did a fantastic job remodeling my kitchen. We added granite, new plumbing, new dry wall with granite backsplash & a travertine backsplash. Roy gave me a very fair and competitive bid (I got several bids so I knew his was fair.) All of the workmen were courteous and respectful in my home. They were helpful and interested in my concerns/feedback on the job as it progressed. Roy returned all of my calls and made sure that I was completely happy with his product/service. If you want to make sure you have a quality job, great service and a fair price - call New Creations. I would definitely use them again!Read More
