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
Roy Faust and New Creations remodeled my kitchen in 2008 and I am still happy with it! He is super honest and ethical and is dedicated to his customers' happiness. I recommend him 200%! I would trust him to do any and all work on my home.Read More
If I could award six stars, I would. New Creations remodeled our kitchen this spring and the entire experience was stress free due largely to the excellent customer service of Roy and Troy and the professionalism of their entire team. We needed someone who could take care of us turnkey and they did. Roy had good advice and tremendous patience with us as we tried to make the hundreds of decisions that come with planning a kitchen remodel. Troy as GC sought to spot and fix the slightest imperfections in the work before we could. He went above and beyond to address any concern we had. The quality of the workmanship, from custom cabinets, to painters and tile work, not to mention the other service professionals, was top notch. I highly recommend New Creations Kitchen and Bath of Austin.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
Roy and the New Creations team did a fantastic job on a complete bathroom remodel and I highly recommend New Creations for anyone considering a bathroom or kitchen remodel for their home. From the beginning to the end of the process, Roy and his team were very involved and attentive throughout. In the early stages of design, Roy helped me come up with the vision of what I wanted, and they quickly and efficiently created what I now consider the shining star of the house. The New Creations team was also very capable of pivoting quickly on particular items if I wanted a tweak or two along the way. Overall it was a great experience and came at a great price, and I plan on using New Creations for an upcoming kitchen remodel.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 house we always wanted! – It is never easy to undertake a remodeling project. Instead of doing just our kitchen, we opted to remodel our entire downstairs which included our kitchen, dining room, living room, master bedroom and bathroom. We essentially packed up our belongings and moved upstairs for 4 months. But what an amazing investment it was. We are now the envy of all of our friends and neighbors. New Creations did a fantastic job with our remodel. They were quick to adjust to our last minute requests and slight design adjustments and the completed project/ workmanship was just fantastic. Our custom cabinets in the kitchen/bathroom in particular are absolutely gorgeous. We were pleased with the end result but also experienced excellent customer service from Roy and Troy throughout the project. We are very happy customers and now look forward to taking on our upstairs in the near future!Read More
Like a new house – We recently completed a kitchen/first floor remodel. After talking to several companies we decided to go with New Creations and we are so thankful we made that decision. From the very beginning we clicked with the people at New Creations. Roy, Jeremy and Troy were nothing short of wonderful. They listened to what we wanted, made suggestions and offered alternatives to improve what we were trying to achieve and went out of their way to make sure we would be happy with the finished product when we were having a hard time making some crucial decisions. We wanted a kitchen that was functional and that was unique, not a carbon copy of a similar floor plan. We are really pleased with the end result. Honesty is a big thing for me when dealing with anyone. These guys and the crews they used were really up front. There were no surprises and no hidden costs. For the most part, time lines were met and the craftsmanship is excellent. The New Creation staff is young, energetic and out of the box thinkers. Most importantly they are honest and know what they are doing. Without a single reservation, I would recommend this company to anyone who is thinking of making home improvements.Read More
We purchased a house built in the mid 70s that hadn't been touched since the mid 70s. We've spent the last four years fixing up almost every room in the house, and the kitchen was the last room we had left. While we were happy with the other rooms, we weren't excited about the contractors we had used to complete the jobs. Going into the kitchen remodel we were half expecting another average experience, but the final product is exactly what we wanted. We are very pleased with how our kitchen turned out. I love everything about it. The job was completed within the timeframe quoted and on budget. There were a few hiccups here and there, but they were all addressed and resolved timely and efficiently. All of the crew - Roy, Troy and Apollo are very friendly, responsive and responsible. I would recommend them to anybody looking to remodel their kitchen.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.
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
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
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
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
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
We love our new kitchen and bathroom – New Creations completely remodeled our kitchen and bathroom this summer. It was no small job as plumbing, electrical and duct work had to be completely rerouted. The job was so major that it even required reframing part of the house between the upstairs and downstairs and relocating a drain in the bathroom. Wow, we didn’t even know things like this were possible.
Roy and his designer worked with us until we everything was perfect. With their experience they had the coolest ideas you could ever imagine. We went with all natural products and we now have the most beautiful kitchen and bathroom you have ever seen.
Everyone on Roy’s team meticulous and professional. They really cared about making us happy throughout the entire process.
We highly recommend Roy and his team at New Creations for any kitchen or bathroom job you may have. They have the necessary people and experience to handle any job no matter how large or small.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
New Creations is full of great customer service. I originally used Roy Faust's (owner) team a couple of years ago to do a complete kitchen remodeling, from tile backsplash, granite counter tops, and new cabinets, to appliance selection. What is remarkable to me, is the great subcontractors that this team pulls together ... top notch artisans and professionals from standard plumbing to artfully designed tile and granite work. I have gone back to this team several times over the past couple of years for smaller jobs now, just to use the great subcontractors that Roy employs. I am very pleased with a recent ceramic tile replacement job that was completed in my home on time, with minimum amount of mess, by men who know their craft well. This team is respectful, personable, and extremely customer focused!Read More
Kitchen - Beautiful and Functional! – I Love My Kitchen!
We met Roy and some of his team members at the last home and garden show in August and decided to let him come over and provide us some ideas as to what we could do with our kitchen. We purchased our 17-year old home in 2008 and knew at that time that it needed renovating. The cabinets were ‘golden oak’, 30 inches tall with white laminate counter top covering every available spot. Additionally, the original appliances were still in use!
Roy was much attuned to our schedule and made several evening appointments to meet with us. His suggestions of installing under-counter lights and ceiling can lights (to replace the three fluorescent fixtures – which for some odd reason, I really wanted to keep…), were initially met with resistance, but we folded…
After meeting with Julia and Roy at the design center, we decided on a red mahogany finish over knotty alder cabinets. Julia creatively designed a ‘furniture’ piece of cabinetry and enlarged the island to accompany the shape of the kitchen. I provided design specifications of the appliances I selected to Greg and his team perfectly sized all areas to fit like a glove. Larry, the plumber, and James, the electrician were pleasant and very professional. Trevor, Josh and Troy were always on top of the schedule.
From the time we met with Roy and Julia at the design center, the cabinets and appliances were ripped out and new cabinets and counters were installed, to the final touchups, we were looking at approximately 2 ½ months. This was primarily due to the glass I selected which turned out to not be available locally and had to be special ordered.
The professionalism, courteousness and sensitivity to customer needs of the New Creations team are second to none. We highly recommend them to anyone looking for a remodeling effort.
P.S. The can lights we were so hesitant to have installed – we wouldn’t have them any other way!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
