What to Expect
01 Most home remodeling projects start with a dream. Pair that with the right contractor and budget, and you end up with the beautiful combination. We make every effort to set the right expectations and deliver a seamless experience. While there are some elements that no one can control, we have the proficiency, competence, and expertise in our business to successfully deal with these circumstances and give you an exceptional product.
Here are 10 things to keep in mind for your next remodel:
- Ask Questions: Communication is critical in every relationship. Our job is to take you through the entire scope of work, step by step. We are happy to explain why we are doing something or let you know how changing something mid-job affects the rest of the project.
- It’s Gonna Get Dirty: Our crew cleans up at the end of the workday, but you’ll still feel and see the remnants of the day. Dust, materials, and other construction debris are unavoidable.
- Commotion: Construction is disruptive and noisy. Unfortunately, there’s no way around it. If you work from home or have small children, you may want to plan to go elsewhere throughout the project.
- Decisions, Decisions: It can seem like there are endless questions to answer and choices to be made. We like to make sure that you get what you want. We will look to you for direction and give design guidance, when requested.
- Time and Money: Time and money are precious commodities, and we’ll do our best to minimize both. Our professional contractors strive for accurate estimates and time frames. Tip: Have a base budget, but add a reserve for unforeseen expenses or changes.
- Changes to the Timeline: Weather, illness, material malfunctions, hidden structural issues, additions to the original job, and a variety of other unforeseen problems can extend your timeline. Clients with the smoothest remodel are resilient, prepared, and communication remains consistent.
- Unwelcome Surprises: You could face any number of surprise circumstances, from permitting & existing unforeseen code compliance issues to outdated plumbing and wiring. Remember, making necessary repairs will give you a safer home in the end.
- Highs and Lows: The remodeling process is exhilarating, terrifying, exciting, and stressful. We do everything we can to minimize the chaos and anticipate unforeseen events. Remember, life will return to normal, and you will finally be able to enjoy the finished product!
- Final Details: Before we can say, “it’s done,” you’ll most likely need to check off a few last items on the punch list. A punch list is things that need finishing before project completion, such as touch-ups, repairs, or fine-tuning.
- Time to Celebrate: Invite friends, family, and our team—it’s time to show off the results of your remodel! A reveal party is an ideal way to blow off some steam. It makes it all worth it.

We recently had DFW Improved build a guest house on our property. The experience was wonderful from foundation to finish out! Todd James managed our project and was very easy to work with, communicated with us constantly, and organized. We are extremely pleased with DFW Improved, would not hesitate to recommend them, and will certainly use them again! Thank you!
Jeff - Plano, TX
We did a pretty big remodel of kitchen, two bathrooms and a whole house repaint. The initial process was easy. We took out time picking the perfect piece of granite. Once that and the other items were selected, they came in with a plan. Everything in the 6 week plan was on time, if not early. Then entire project finished right on time. Every time we had a concern, Todd was there to help us through it. Todd was a fabulous project manager. Could not be happier with this whole,process.
Our Renovation Went Smoothly
Dee - Plano, TX
We are completely happy with Todd James as our project manager. he kept us up to date when to expect different trades and what time they would be arriving. He built a 6 week schedule that ran on time if not early on some of the trades. I would request Todd as our project manager every time.
Excellent service, stuck to calendar, good communication
Wilson Resort - Plano, TX
I was so pleased with DFW Improved, starting from the sales team, the help they provided us with our insurance company, and all the way down to the project manager and trade folks. Professional, courteous, and very communicative, which is hard to find in the world of contractors. We found them in the 2019 Best of Collin County book we got in the mail and I can see why they’re ranked that way. Highly recommend!
Great to work with.

Great job on our floors! The whole team was especially thoughtful of our family as we have an infant! From demo to install and even cleaning the whole team always thought of our little guy when working. They were careful about the noise, chemicals used and the dust. They treated him like he was their own child in care how the remodel would impact him! We really appreciate it! And the floors look amazing!

Outstanding craftsmanship and professionalism!
Good Quality (AND AHEAD OF SCHEDULE) bathroom Reno with good communication
Rachel C. - Plano, TX
Every part of this process to renovate our bathroom has been easy thanks to DFW Improved. This was our first Reno project ever, and we had heard horror stories from friends who used different companies / independent contractors. We are so grateful to this team for how the bathroom looks (fantastic, clean, updated, just like I hoped)... but we are also so grateful for how DFW Improved handled the work and contract. Carlos, Heath, the design team, the office::: everyone has been so wonderful to work with. They communicate very clearly, and that starts with the in home consult to see what your goals for the space are. DFW Improved keeps their promises and shows up or calls when they say they will. There was not a question of when things will be done or how. The project timeline was made and given to us and they even managed to get things done ahead of scheduling. I felt at ease and trusted them in our home. They kept the space clean and the rest of our home was protected through the process. We got updates and texts consistently from our ONE (always dependable and reliable) project manager, Carlos. Carlos made sure things were getting done, kept us informed, and made sure we were happy. I could text or call our project manager and get a call or text back; I feel like that is super rare and so special to this company. When you hear stories about contractors not showing up, work going on for longer than intended, that makes you anxious to do any renovation. None of that was anything like our experience: our experience with DFW improved was remarkably easy. Makes me ready for the next project for them to do in the suture! I highly recommend them to anyone considering a home improvement project.

How to Choose a Remodeling Contractor
01 What is the biggest mistake people make when choosing a remodeling contractor? Is the old saying is really true, you get what you pay for?! We see this so often in the home remodeling business. If you want quality construction, it’s important to choose a Remodeling Contractor because of the value you will receive.It is impossible for any company in any industry to offer the cheapest price, have the highest quality, and provide the best service all at the same time. You can get high quality and superior service, but rarely will you get both and still get the lowest price.
Value = Quality + Service + PriceTo avoid buying on price alone, we suggest that you visit with several contractors and rank them in the order that is important to you, such as Quality first, Service second, and Price last. In addition, you must carefully compare the scope of work for each company. Are they truly bidding the same project? Ask for and check out their references. What do past clients have to say? Are they happy with the end result?Review the proposed home remodeling contractor carefully online. Do they have a website? Do you feel like they have heard you and can they carry out your vision? The end result is that you will get what you pay for. The money you might have saved with a cheaper price could end up costing you far more in the long run!
