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
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 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 any one 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
Awesome Bathroom Remodeling Job – We selected New Creations to completely remodel our guest bathroom and they did a fantastic job. The project involved a complete demolition of the bathroom down to the studs and slab, replacement of sheetrock and ceiling, installing a new larger bathtub and shower, moving of the tub and toiler drains (involving jackhammering new holes in the slab, installing Travertine tile on the floor and in the tub and shower area, installing a new toilet, installing a Silestone countertop, new sink and sink hardware, installing a new can light and over the sink light, "un-popcorning" the ceiling, and painting. Throughout the process, New Creations kept us constantly updated on the schedule and progress with their online Bootcamp project system, they were extremely courteous and sensitive to all our needs and concerns, they kept the areas of the house adjacent to the work area immaculately, and they were fanatical about making sure that everything was done to perfection. The cost was reasonable and came in exactly as quoted. Finally, you simply won't find a nicer group of people to work with - Roy and Jeremy (the project manager) are two of the most genuinely decent people we have had the privilege to work with.Read More
I had planned the renovation of my guest room and two upstairs baths down to the tiniest detail (I am that detail oriented!) When I initially met with Roy and showed him what I wanted, I immediately sensed that I had gained a partner in my plans. He understood my goals and assured me that I could get what I wanted. And I did!
Troy Hester managed my project with a degree of determination, expertise, and compassion that was above and beyond the norm. He made my vision become a reality.
Apollo, Paul, and the rest of the team worked competently and creatively to make this project work in a timely an professional manner.
As with any renovation project there were some surprises, some set-backs, and some adjustments. The few that arose were quickly and satisfactorily addressed and remedied. I was completely happy with the handling of these items.
In terms of quality, vision, competence, timeliness, value for dollars, and just generally good experience, I recommend New Creations without any reservations. Not only would I refer them to my friends. I am already planning for my next renovation project with Roy and the New Creations team.
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
A GREAT REMODELING EXPERIENCE!!! – The New Creations staff made our remodel project such a pleasant experience. Our extensive project included the entire living level of our home, including the kitchen, in addition to a bathroom upstairs. We appreciated the fact that the dust and debris were kept to a minimum during demolition and there were never construction items left outside our home. Our project manager was always available to respond to any questions or issues that arose. The subcontractors were courteous and did great work. As with any remodel, there were a few challenges, but our project manager met those challenges with a positive attitude and always found a solution. There were many times that he went far beyond the call of duty to make sure our vision became a reality and always did his best to stay within our budget.
Our home is now even more beautiful and functional than we could ever have imagined. We would definitely recommend New Creations to anyone wanting to do a remodel project.
Even though our project was completed in May, 2011, Roy continues to contact us every six months to see if there is any touch-up or repairs that need to be done. Not only does this make us even more comfortable with his work, but it is also great to visit with him. He and his staff became such a big part of our lives during the project, that we actually missed them when it was over. They not only do a great job, but they're good people.
We highly recommend New Creations to anyone considering a remodel project, and we will certainly call them if we decide to do another remodel.Read More
6-Star Remodel Experience – Each associate of New Creations, from the ower Roy, with partners Troy and Greg, to the construction crew Polo and his helper Juan, truly cares about doing the best job possible and making the experience pleasant. They hire the best electricians, painters, plumbers, appliance installers in the business and coordinate their schedules so you don't have to worry about a thing. As a matter of fact, Roy's favoriate expression to me was "Don't worry...that's what you're paying me for." And with Roy Faust you get your money's worth. Not only would I recommend him to anyone looking to remodel, I'm recommending him to my MOTHER!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
This review marks our third successful engagement with Roy and the New Creations team. The first was a stunning remodel of a galley into an open, airy European-style kitchen with wide open shelves featuring floating cabinets with attractive under-cabinet lighting. Our second was a remodel of a beige and forest green lavatory with peeling-linoleum-filled bathroom into a crisp, airy bathroom featuring hexagonal tiles that popped with dark grout and thoughtfully reworked pluming with chrome fixtures.
Our most recent engagement was a large project in our newly purchased home. It involved new floors, resurfaced ceilings, wall to wall paint, and a completely resurrected kitchen space. I've always admired how clean and unimposing Roy's team can be while knocking down walls and tearing out wires and pipes. One of Roy's most exciting additions is Erin Rooney, who provides thoughtful advice and sketches while sweeping the clients around town and offering her input on a dizzying array of building materials, hardware, and glass. You really feel taken care of on the New Creations team--they have a gift for taking your vision in the form of magazine clippings, your favorite photos on Houzz, and vague descriptions (think, "modern but traditional," "light and open but private," etc. I think I would have slapped myself if I were them) and turning them into coherent, thoughtful design.
We are in love with our new home and that is largely attributable to Roy and his team. I appreciate the consistency with which they deliver beautiful results. Most importantly, we have never felt Roy's attention waver due to the size of our jobs. From the little bathroom remodel to the full home excursion, he has made sure we are taken care of. Cheers to the New Creation team!Read More
Amazing......love, love our new kitchen and New Creations.
New Creations kept us updated daily, met their timeline as scheduled and the staff was responsive, professional and personable. One of the best things they offer is an invite for you to view their project schedule. The schedule shows daily who is to come out and what work is to be done. Troy keep it updated daily to follow up on any carryovers. This on-line scheduler is a wonderful way to keep everyone informed and since our project lasted four weeks it was very helpful. I love organization so for me this tool was the BEST!!
In Summary, Roy helped us plan and design the perfect kitchen. Then, Troy who was always on site kept everyone and everything going. Both Roy and Troy reflect New Creations as a company with high integrity and great pride.
New Creations was one of the best team I have ever worked with!! I highly recommend this company.Read More
New Creations Custom Kitchen & Bath Remodeling – My husband and I were very pleased with the outcome of our kitchen cabinets. The entire job was done timely and everyone was very professional. Roy followed up to make sure we were happy with the results and Greg and other workers were very flexible with our schedule.
They did an outstanding job and I get so many compliments on my kitchen.Read More
New Creations Custom Kitchen Remodeling – The recent remodel of our kitchen was a refreshing experience. Roy Faust and his team are extremely talented and knowledgeable in their fields. Roy or his associate Luis communicated with us every step of the way, and even stopped by during construction phases. All of the men that were in our home were nothing but extremely respectful to myself (and all my questions, ) my two small children (who sat and watched the entire process,) and to my home. After the work was done, there were a few small tweaks that needed to be made. Although my husband and I had been completely impressed by the work ethic to that point, we were blown away that final payment would not be accepted until the kitchen was 100% finished, to our satisfaction. We love our kitchen, and will recommend New Creations to anyone who is interested in a kitchen remodel.Read More
Professional and Attentive – Ours was the largest project undertaken by New Creations as of 1/10. We gutted our Master Bedroom, bath and closets, kitchen, laundry room, garage entry and Jack and Jill Bathroom. They were all being done at the same time! This could have been a scheduling nightmare, but Troy seemed to handle it in stride.
Julia was more than successful fitting in all that we wanted in the space we had. We could not be more pleased with the design. Our house feels completely new!
The entire crew, Roy, Julia, Troy, Joshua, Apollo and Juan were very easy to work with. Roy holds each person to a very high standard of professionalism. Even the demo guys were clean and pleasant.
We love our new kitchen! The design is perfect and the quality is very evident. Like most projects we had some hitches, but they were easily worked through.
I can say the entire process was so much less "painful" than I anticipated. I credit the team with their attention to detail, attention to what I was saying, and professional attitudes toward their work product. I can recommend New Creations.Read More
After receiving countless compliments on our kitchen remodel (more like total overhaul), we called Roy and Troy about our tiny but disastrous hall guest bathroom. I knew this gem of a company had picked up quite a bit of business in recent months; however, I received the same level of diligence and attention on this much smaller project. My guest bathroom was completely transformed. This former afterthought in my home is now one of its best looking features. Everything NC touches turns to gold, and it is my pleasure to recommend them AGAIN!Read More
We Love Our Bathroom – Roy, the vibrant and energetic owner of New Creations, places customer satisfaction as the centerpiece of his business. His experience, enthusiasm and gift for envisioning the creative possibilities truly made me feel that my project was his most important one. His site manager, Troy, supervises all aspects of the project with a consistently careful eye and responsiveness to the client's input. The follow through was excellent and pride in execution was always evident. We are extremely delighted with our new bathroom, exactly what we had in mind.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
I love my new "spa -like" bathroom! The New Creations team did a wonderful job. The workers were professional, courteous and trustworthy. The area was always left clean and they paid attention to every detail. The project ran according to schedule and it turned out even better than I had envisioned. I would definitely hire Roy, Troy, and the New Creations team again!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
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
