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
I recently had New Creations remodel 3 bathrooms in my house; a master bath, powder room and guest bath. It was a complicated project since were doing 3 bathrooms at once however; it was made easy by working with Roy and his team. What I liked about working with them was the attention to detail and the fact that they truly care if the project is done right and to your satisfaction. We have done several remodeling projects in the past in our house with other contractors that we had to manage and coordinate getting the work done. It was great working with New Creations in that they are truly a turnkey company and completely managed all aspects of the project from start to finish. This was the least stressful remodel that we have done in the house.
Roy and his team spend a lot of time up front making sure the design of each room met not only our needs aesthetically but also on a practical level. This helps to reduce the actual construction time because everything is planned, ordered and ready to go and you are not having to make rush decisions as the project is going on to meet construction deadlines. Once the project began the team was very careful to protect my walls and floors as well as tried as best as they could to keep it as clean as possible. I was very happy with how all three of my bathrooms turned out and cannot wait to work with New Creations on our kitchen next.Read More
We Highly Recommend New Creations – Roy Faust and the team at New Creations exhibit a rare combination of creativity, technical prowess, honesty, and dedication that is oh so rare. From the initial meeting with Roy, where he easily understood our thoughts and goals for our new kitchen, to the design process, where those ideas were improved, through construction, where the ideas were implemented with precision, New Creations' expertise and abilities were evident.
New Creations employees and all subcontractors are skilled artisans who take great pride in their work and who are enjoyable people to be around. In addition to their quality work they take great care in minimizing the impact that a remodeling project has on your home and home life.
Roy has created a design center, which, in conjunction with his expertise in creating a kitchen that is both pleasing to the eye and functional, allowed our new kitchen to come to life in a way that typical samples cannot provide. The ability to see cabinet/counter/hardware/lighting combinations in a large scale setting inspired confidence in our decisions.
As mentioned above, everyone associated with the project exhibited great honesty, and a commitment to quickly resolving any issues that arose during the project.
We enjoy our new kitchen every day, and thank Roy, Troy, Mike, Trevor, Greg, Juan, Apollo, Summit Stone, and everyone else for creating it.Read More
Highly Impressive! – We are so happy to have used New Creations for our kitchen remodel. From our first meeting with Roy, we could tell he was very concerned with customer satisfaction. We found this to be true throughout the entire process. We knew that if Roy said it would happen, he meant it. All of the workers in our home were helpful, respectful, and trustworthy. If you want a quality remodel, New Creations is hands down the best!Read More
We had Roy and his crew redo our uppers and reface our lowers along with installing a backsplash. His crew was never late, always courteous and clean, and they had excellent expertise in their job. The kitchen looks awesome and we couldn't be happier.Read More
Great Remodel Experience, Again! – This is my 2nd review of New Creations. I left a review on 3/13/08 under the nameRead 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
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
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
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
kitchen remodel – Both Roy and Troy were excellent communicators and very customer friendly. Our options were clearly presented with great advise every step of the way. Our kitchen turned out even better than we imagined. The price was fair, the job was completed on time, and best of all, there were no surprises. I highly recommend New Creations and we plan to use them again for our bathroom remodel.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

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
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
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
We hired New Creations to remodel our kitchen. They came recommended by friends here in Jester Estates and we loved their kitchen. Roy was very accommodating of our schedule and could meet with us in the evening which was a huge plus. This was our first remodeling project and Roy and Troy made it stress free for us. The project was completed on time and on budget with no change orders - that's good planning. Their team of cabinet makers, painters, appliance, tile and granite professionals were all a pleasure to work with. They worked hard to keep our house clean during construction and the workmanship was very high quality. I did use a designer, Kimball Bonamici, to help with a few elements and that worked out well. We love our new kitchen and highly recommend New Creations.Read More
Great work – The work was done on time and in a very professional manner. We only needed a counter top and the workmen were very careful not to damage our existing cabinets.
We were given a schedule when the counter top would be installed, when the tile contractor would be there and when the plumber would install the new sink plumbing. Every process was started on time and completed on time.
Ever member of the work crew were very respectful of our home and did there best to keep it clean of outside dirt.
I do highly recommend New Creations Custom Kitchens and Bath Remodeling to every one that is looking to redo their home.Read More
We had a great experience with Roy Faust, Troy and everyone at New Creations. They are professional, communicate extremely well and do fantastic work.
We totally remodeled our kitchen and breakfast area and could not be happier with the outcome. We plan to do a complete bath and closet remodel later in the year and will definitely use Roy and his crew again.
They listened to everything we wanted to do. Made very useful suggestions/improvements to our designs. Drew up a very complete budget and plan for the remodel and walked us through all the steps ahead of time. We really are very happy with the method, quality, quickness and professionalism of everyone they brought in.Read More
We hired New Creations to do a complete remodel on our 5000 sq. ft. home in Austin, Texas. We were very pleased with the results of our new home. The remodel consisted of everything from painting walls to taking the kitchen down to the studs and rebuilding it. Roy and his staff were very professional at all times. They worked with us and we never felt pressure of any kind to do something that we weren't 100% agreed upon. They kept us informed at all times of the process of the remodel. We all worked together and as a result we have a beautiful home.
Roy has also continued to stay in touch with us and recently called to see if we would like our countertops resealed and anything else we needed. This follow up was after almost three years from our remodel job. We were very impressed with New Creations not only for their design work, the quality of people they employed and the follow up given three years later. I highly recommend New Creations based on the job that was done for us.
