Best Kitchen Remodeler...Hands Down! – Roy (owner of New Creations) worked very patiently with us as we painfully crawled through the design and estimating/ bid evaluation process. He had a lot of great ideas we had not considered when we decided to remodel the kitchen. Once we finally accepted his offer, he very clearly lined out all the steps his team need to do and all the homework we needed to do in order to get all materials and resources in the right place at the right time. The first day of demo was Oct 19, 2011 and the last day of punch list tidy ups was Dec 23. The bulk of all the work and adjustments were completed by the end of November but Roy's commitment to 100% customer satisfaction kept his guys coming back until everything was right per his opinion which in a number of cases was far more detailed than ours. All of his team were very personable and we had no concerns allowing them to work in our home unattended. We got to meet all of them prior to us even signing the contract with New Creations which was just another example of how Roy took uncertainty out of the equation. Add on top this, their use of a web based project planning tool that we were given access to so we could always keep up with what was accomplished by who as well as what was coming and when. The team kept the house very neat considering the level of construction that was taking place and made sure to clean up at the end of everyday. We could not be happier with the final product New Creations delivered for us. The kitchen is far more functional than the original with lots more cabinet and drawer space without adding a single inch of sq footage. From beginning to end, Roy and his project manager, Troy were always responsive by e-mail and phone for any question that popped into our heads and the thoroughness of the upfront planning & design efforts they led resulted in no change orders or other financial surprises (except for items mandated by city code i.e. smoke detectors on every open surface in house it seems, overwhich they had no control). All of Roys' subcontractors took as much ownership of our satisfaction as Roy did for which we are very grateful. We highly recommend you consider Roy Faust and New Creations for your remodeling project, you will not be disappointed!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
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
Outstanding service and product and excellent follow through – The team at NC - Roy, Troy and Apollo - were outstanding from start to finish on our total kitchen redo. We started with an initial free consultation with Roy where we exchanged ideas of what we wanted and heard from Roy what the latest in kitchen design trends are. From initial concept, we quickly settled in what was possible given our kitchen configuration and budget. The NC design studio allows the viewing of various types of custom cabinets, granite and tile backsplash, which made the selection of materials seamless. We were given several hours of consult time with a designer at the studio that helped coordinate colors and textures and led to a beautiful, custom backsplash design. Within two weeks the remodeling started and was tracked with the NC project-specific schedule. Not only did this schedule specifically indicate what would be happening in all six phases of the project, but also described the decisions that were needed along the way in terms of product selection, where we needed to go and who we needed to talk to. The NC team provided coordination with the vendors and installers so that we only had to deal with them. At each step of the way, our project manager, Troy, was on site and ensured that the remodeling and installation was expertly performed. Apollo expertly installed the custom tile backsplash, which was somewhat complicated in pattern in design. In every construction project there are problems that arise and what I especially liked about NC was how they tackled the problems quickly and head on, even when it meant extra costs that they had to absorbed to resolve the issue. This is unheard of in this day and age in construction. Our kitchen remodel was not only stunning to look at, but represented a pleasant experience despite the obvious disruption to normal household life during the project. We would highly recommend NC to anyone who wants an outstanding kitchen remodel at a fair price.Read More
I recently had New Creations help me with a smaller project in regards to remodels. I was blown away by their level of care and expertise. All of my encounters with them have been pleasant and enjoyable, and I had a lot of peace of mind using them. After working with New Creations, I can say that I am completely convinced that their professionalism, skill level, and timeliness is, without a doubt, at the very top of the industry and I would HIGHLY recommend them to friends AND family!Read More
Love my kitchen, loved my experience getting it – We recently finished our full kitchen remodel with New Creations. After viewing photos of the company’s work on their website, meeting with Roy, and visiting their showroom, I never doubted we would get a gorgeous kitchen. (And we did). What did surprise me was the exceptional degree of customer service, attention to detail, and true commitment to making the customer happy that we experienced, something that was demonstrated by every member of the New Creations team. These guys take pride in their craftsmanship and truly don’t rest until the customer is satisfied. Our concerns were their highest priorities.
I was also surprised by the efforts they took to make sure the remodel process was as painless as possible on my family – working quickly to allow us to have our functional kitchen back, blocking and ventilating the worksite to minimize dust in the rest of the house, cleaning up the jobsite each day, and even having a professional cleaning service come in at the end of the project. We not only have an incredible kitchen now that we love, we had a great experience in getting it. Who would have thought? I highly recommend these guys.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
I am so sorry you were let down. We take these comments very serious as we have addressed your comments with the entire staff. We will look to improve in our follow through and work with our designers to be more customer service oriented.

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
Great Remodel Experience, Again! – This is my 2nd review of New Creations. I left a review on 3/13/08 under the nameRead 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
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
My wife and I have been very pleased to have worked with New Creations on a significant remodeling project on our planned retirement home and would recommend Roy and his associated personnel to anyone. We decided to tackle not only the remodel of a large kitchen, but also 3 full baths as well as a den and a utility room all at the same time. The scope was large and design details could have been lost, but a focused approach by New Creation's designer Erin on each aspect of the remodel kept us on track and delivered on some great ideas.
New Creations made effective use of electronic communications which allowed for easy transmittal of concepts that were able to be discussed and integrated into design iterations. Later on during the build the online scheduling program as well as emails kept us abreast of work progress and made communicating simple.
The demolition started as planned, work progressed in a timely manner and the project was completed on budget. The subcontractors Roy utilizes have been with him for awhile and are excellent. They all paid attention to details, delivered a high quality of workmanship, kept the work place clean and were very pleasant to work with. All in all, our experience with New Creations and Roy's team was very positive, we enjoyed the process and highly recommend him. M&J Long
Kitchen Remodeling - Let Roy lead the way to success! – I first heard about New Creations at a local home show in Austin, Texas. I was a little hesitant about using a contractor that I found in this manner, however decided to give him a chance since our experience with other contractors had not produced any promising results. When Roy Faust came to our house for the first time I was immediately impressed by his professionalism, unique ideas and enthusiasm. By the time he left, I was convinced he was the perfect guy for the job, however his positive referrals sealed the deal.
Throughout the project he lived up to my complete expectations:
- Roy was easy to access
- Always willing to come on site at a moment?s notice
- Flexible and open to changes throughout all stages of the project
- Came up with fresh ideas with an eye for detail
- Managed his crew and made sure they produced quality results
- Most importantly, finished the project on-time.
For anyone that is ready to take on the challenge of kitchen remodeling, I highly recommend Roy Faust to lead the way. You won?t be disappointed.Read More
Amazing New Kitchen – After 8 years in our home, we decided to update our kitchen. We researched and contacted several companies who did kitchen remodels. Roy at New Creations was the first (and one of the only) to respond to our queries.
Roy and his band of contractors helped us with the new kitchen design. Alina helped with paint colors, cabinet colors and getting us appointments with various vendors. Roy's cabinet maker was phenomenal. Our new woodwork is truly beautiful. His tile crew were always prompt and did an amazing job with the new travertine. Both his plumber and electrician were always on hand to answer questions and solve construction issues.
Working with Jeremy, our site manager, was fantastic! He was ALWAYS available by phone and email. (And, yes, we had him on speed dial!)
Living through a kitchen remodel isn't ever fun, but Roy and his team at New Creations made it bearable. We are so glad we hired them. Our kitchen is beautiful!!Read More
facelift for my old kitchen – I would recommend New Creations to anyone looking to understand all the options when facing a kitchen remodel. The design center was unique in that Roy could create a mock up with the finishes I had chosen- this was great for a person who debates endlessly between options and is not entirely confident in her ability to picture the finished product from a sample tile. New Creations really seperated themselves from other contractors I have used while remodeling with their superb degree of creativity, communication, and customer service. Our old kitchen looks better than I had dreamed at almost half of the quote I had recieved from a nationwide company. Thanks to Roy, Troy and the guys who have worked so hard to do the job they promised!Read More
This was my first time to remodel anything. I heard all the horror stories, and entered into the process with trepidation. Roy, Erin and the New Creations team made everything so easy that I really am left wondering what is so bad about remodeling. My new kitchen is absolutely gorgeous. The process was, dare I say...fun?! Most importantly, Roy and the team were on time, on budget and did exactly what they said they would do: deliver a high quality job. I am happy with every detail. Thanks, Roy!Read More
I'm in love with my NEW kitchen!!! – It's amazing what a little change can do, that makes a big difference. My kitchen cabinets were ugly, outdated and needed a change. So, I searched around for a couple of companies that did cabinet refacing and had them come out and give me a quote, but there was no comparison to New Creations. Roy Faust and his team are great to work with, I could really tell he loves what he does by his enthusiasm and knowledge. My whole experience was amazing and I can't wait to have them put in a new back splash, new tile around the fireplace and downstairs floor. I'm madly in love with my new kitchen. Thank you New Creations....you guys are awesome!!!!Read More
Best Contractor Experience Ever! – Our kitchen was every bit the quintessential galley model from the 1980s—skinny, appliance doors bumping cabinet doors, and finished with wood laminate running across the countertops, backsplash, and even surrounding the yellow-plastic-encased fluorescent light fixture. The builder even added a wall to divide it from the living and formal dining area, complete with a tiny square window so the tired cook would watch the 5 o’clock news while she heated up TV dinners in her faux wood prison. Obviously, I had major issues with my kitchen.
My husband and I overhauled our house, and no matter what we did, we were stumped when it came to the kitchen. We had a few ideas, none of them terribly concrete—but that didn’t stop us from interviewing a string of contractors who were clearly frustrated with our lack of vision. That was where Roy and his team shined from the beginning—our openness didn’t frustrate him, it got him excited. He worked with us for over a month, taking our vague clues (i.e.”You see the shelf in the background of this ad? Those could be cool!”) and transforming them into something his team could create. He gave us the same attention as the higher end design build firms, and when the sketches were complete, the pricing didn’t make us swoon. Hooray!
After all was said and done, we knocked down a wall, covered the remaining space in creamy penny round tile, installed brand new cabinetry and shelving in sumptuous cherry and walnut stain, and tied it all together with some of the best lighting work I’ve ever seen. This isn’t to say we didn’t encounter issues---all renovation projects of this magnitude will. And here is my favorite thing by far about New Creations: They did us right in every possible way. They were accountable, ethical, fair, and NICE. I have had good and bad contractor experiences, and even with the good ones, I’m not sure I could say that so unabashedly. I am obsessed with my new kitchen—If you want to message me, I’m happy to talk to you in more detail about Roy and his colleagues.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.
