Roy Faust and his team at New Creations have excelled in delivering outstanding results in quality, project management, and customer satisfaction through three significant home renovation projects. I am a very particular and detail oriented customer who has approached each project with a definite and unique vision that represents my home and me. Roy and the team respected my input and helped refine the project to make my vision a reality. I feel fortunate to have found New Creations for my renovations: they employ a great team of subcontractors, suppliers, artisans, and specialists (including furniture builders and suppliers who deal with out of the ordinary materials and finishes), which, along with a combination of design and technical knowledge, ensures that my vision can be brought to life.
Roy and the team treated me as a participant in the projects; they listened to my concerns and included me in all aspects of the planning. I felt that they approached my renovations as partners, not just as doing a job; they were as invested in a successful outcome as I was. In any renovation project unforeseen issues occur. When problems did arise Roy and the team provided creative solutions, drawing on their design and technical expertise to maintain the integrity of the project. In lesser hands, the design quality would have been compromised.
New Creations manages projects effectively, maximizing the use of materials, time, and labor to ensure the minimum level of disruption possible during a large renovation. They stand behind their work, are reliable, professional, and honest. I highly value the true team performance from the New Creations crew with respect to coordination, expertise, and process. I am in the process of designing future projects and can’t imagine trusting anyone else to deliver the unique designs, reflecting who I am, other than Roy and the New Creations team. Would I recommend New Creations? Yes, with no reservations!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
Very Professional – We had Roy and his team install a new granite counter in our kitchen, new island, new sink & backsplash and also a granite counter and sinks in our master bath. Roy coordinated all of the work and everyone was on-time and professional. They kept the place clean during their work and made sure everything looked right before they left. Job was completed quickly - especially after hearing stories about other contractors. Wouldn't hesitate to use them again and have already recommended them to others.Read More
Customer Service with Excitement – Many companies can do the job but when I spend my hard earned money I want quality work and unyielding customer service. I acquired several bids ranging from Home Depot to older established kitchen remodeling companies. I found Roy to be the most attentive and interested in our specific job.
Roy sincerely got excited when we talked about our kitchen. He first listened and then offered his experienced and talented opinions to help us make the best possible decision about the materials and design for our kitchen. We had several visits at Roy’s showroom where we tossed around many design ideas until we pin pointed the one for us. I feel like Roy treated our remodel as if it were a fifty or sixty thousand dollar job. But actually ours was a quite small job relatively. This is why we chose Roy at New Creations.
Roy remained excited throughout the job and was always easy to contact. The work stayed on schedule from tear out to finish. My wife and I met and talked with everyone of the laborers as they performed their various tasks and were impressed each time. Roy has selected quality folks to represent New Creations.
Weather you have a total kitchen remodel or a partial like we did (granite counter top with travertine back splash) I feel confident in recommending Roy and his crew at New Creations’. And I think you will enjoy the excitement Roy has for providing the best customer experience possible.Read More
My kitchen is AMAZING! – Roy, Troy and their team at New Creations did an amazing job on our complete kitchen remodel. They provided us with an accurate timeline and everyone to a man and woman were absolutely professional. The listened to our ideas and needs and the results are exactly what we were after. The craftsmanship on our cabinets, tile and counters is stellar. When I walk into my kitchen I just have to stand there and smile! I know there are a lot of great builders/contractors out there but these guys are the tops. They were always willing to go the extra mile to make sure we were 100% satisfied and we are.Read More
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.
To clarify: I hesitated to give a 5-star rating out of 5 since I don't believe anything is perfect. However, my experience was better than "very good." They exemplify customer service and I can confidently say to anyone who is looking for a complete kitchen remodeling company, "Run, don't walk to New Creations!"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
A very talented, courteous and professional team! – I loved everything about my new home except for the tiny, dark, unattractive bathrooms. I contacted New Creations based on recommendations from two of my neighbors, and I couldn't be happier with the results! This was my first experience with a remodel and I really didn't know what to expect. Roy's and his sub-contractors worked with me every step of the way. They encouraged me to play a big part in the design process, and this hands-on involvement was an exciting and fulfilling experience. They really made me feel like I was part of the team, all the while helping me make smart decisions based on their prior experiences. In the end, their expert advice proved invaluable. Virtually every decision we made turned out to be the right choice. Prior to the remodel, my master bathroom was a depressingly dismal place. Now it's a joy just to be in this room. We knocked out an unnecessary dividing wall and removed the outdated tub and fixtures, then installed custom cabinets, new floor tiles, expertly textured walls, a beautiful new countertop with a vessel sink and a gorgeous, modern glass walled shower. In our guest bathroom we added new cabinet and drawer faces, countertop with vessel sink and new floor tiles, and finished it off with retextured walls and fresh paint throughout. To top it off, we added solar tubes to both bathrooms, making them so much brighter and more inviting. I'm very proud of my remodeled guest bathroom, but my master bath is simply a joy! It's my own little oasis/spa. A big thanks to Roy and his team for all their hard work. I recommend them whole-heartedly!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
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
My husband and I hired New Creations to replace our existing
kitchen countertops with granite and replace
the sink with a high end one. The price we
were quoted was lower than the other companies
who gave us estimates. As we have a lot of counter
space and a large bar area that needed to be upgraded,
we definitely felt that Roy's price was excellent. We
appreciated Roy and his employees for their honesty &
professionalism. I would highly recommend New Creations
for your remodeling needs.
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
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
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
Experienced, professional and fun to work with! – Remodeling a kitchen is such a huge deal that we put it off for quite some time. If only we had known about Roy Faust and New Creations we would have started much earlier!
We love the final product and have to say that the experience was excellent. New Creations came in on budget and ahead of time!! These guys really know what they are doing!
The planning was very thorough. We had a great exchange of ideas to finally come up with the design and materials we wanted and the end result proves it. We have a kitchen that is just right for our family and lifestyle.
During the process Jeremy, our day-to-day contact, was always polite and professional, with a good sense of humor too! The work site was always clean. The subcontractors showed up when they said they would. We loved the Basecamp tool that helped everyone know the schedule, and let us plan our lives around the work.
With a big project there will obviously be minor hiccups along the way, but it is how they were dealt with that shows the true professionalism of New Creations… quick to respond and always focused on providing excellent customer service.
We would definitely recommend New Creations to anyone undertaking a kitchen remodel.Read More
High-end kitchen with reasonable price! – When I started out my kitchen venture, I was skeptical about doing business with contractors. I've heard numerous nightmares about the outcome of the kitchen, let alone its financial impact that causes to a family. As a REALTOR, I know the importance of the kitchen for resale purposes, specifically, if the outcome was not favorable to prospective buyers. Hence, I vigorously did my due diligence by taking quotes, monitoring contractor's response, conducting reference check, et al. I am very pleased and satisfied with making the right choice by hiring Roy and his crew. Roy provided his expert opinion, provided guidance, and communicated with me throughout the entire process. Importantly, he stayed within the allotted timeframe. Roy, thank you for adhering to those dates! Needless to say, I continue to recommend New Creations to my friends and family. So, if you want excellent customer service, quality service, high-end look and not break the bank, hire New Creations! You won?t regret it!Read More
So thankful that I selected New Creations – I wanted my kitchen remodeled and I was willing to buy the pre-fabricated cabinets, find someone to tear out my kitchen and be the boss on my own job. What a nightmare that would have been. I received a couple of estimates from remodelers and one of them took 3 weeks to get back to me with a figure. Neither one of those guys was willing to coordinate any other sub-contractors like plumbers, electricians or any specialty job that needed to be done. So I would have been on my own. A friend of mine highly recommended Roy Faust and New Creations. His quote on my job came in about four thousand more than the other two quotes, but I would be getting CUSTOM CABINETS and someone who knew sub-contractors and someone who would coordinate all of them. I signed up pretty quickly with Roy. He gave me names and phone numbers of clients that he had worked for, he took me to one of his clients' houses to see the work and either he or his assistant, Leah, called me almost every day to let me know what was going on. Roy has his own crew that does most of the work, but he knows and has contacts of people that he has used before and he knows that he can trust their work and most importantly their word. If he feels that they are not accomplishing the best job possible, he lets them go. He just will not put up with it. The plumber that he had hired had been good in past jobs, but on my job the plumber was not following directions. And I was present when Roy was giving instructions, so I know what was supposed to be done. Roy got the job done correctly and I never had to deal with the plumber, nor did I have to pay anything extra for the corrections. All I had to do was have the confidence in Roy and his crew to get the job done right. I never once got upset about ANYTHING, I never had to. The cabinet maker, Scott, is an artist and all contacts that I had with anyone was a pleasure. And my kitchen? A dream come true. Marsha KruegerRead 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
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
New Creations Custom Kitchen Remodeling – Our experience with Roy and his crew was excellent. From the initial stages of developing a plan and bidding all the way through completion, this team did exactly what they said they would. Roy's coaching and suggestions helped us make the right decisions on all aspects of the project. Last minute changes were taken in stride and dealt with professionally. The quality of the cabinet and granite work exceeded our expectations. The craftsmen made every effort to disrupt our home as little as possible and were a pleasure to work with. The job was completed on time, on budget and met all our expectations.
