The Right Fit for Your Home Remodel Project
Design & Remodel Services in Charlotte
No matter what project you hire us to do, our step-by-step design process ensures we get everything correct, down to the last detail. As a design/build remodeling firm, DiFabion Remodeling’s approach to design is collaborative. Whether you have a complete design plan or simply have a vague concept in mind, we can help!
Our goal is the same in every design we execute: to capture the original vision as closely as possible within the constraints of reality. What does this mean? It means we take the time to listen to your concept and create an initial design based on your desires. The design will change over time as you make firmer decisions and we come in to measure your existing space. All changes will be agreed upon by both the designer and you, the client, to ensure that the design is both practical and fulfilling.

Timing Our Remodeling Projects in Charlotte
Although we are just as excited as you about your home remodel project and try to accommodate tight timelines to the best of our abilities, sometimes projects take a bit longer than first thought. In reality, it takes time to plan and execute large remodeling projects correctly. Before signing on, please consider the following:
- Initial Planning & Proposals: First, we speak with you to gather information and determine exactly what you’re wanting for your home remodel. This is where we discuss your needs, wants, and design preferences as well as compare your budget restraints. You may need time to discuss and decide if DiFabion Remodeling is the best fit for you. Learn more about this step-by-step process on our Remodeling Process!
- Design & Selections: No matter if you’re planning a complete kitchen remodel or a small-scale bathroom upgrade, many design decisions will need to be made. Things like flooring, lighting, colors, appliances, fixtures, and many others will need to be decided on. These types of decisions can take time even if you think you know exactly what you want. A number of other factors may add additional time to this process, including price and availability, which may lead to going back to the drawing board and taking even more time.
- Permits & Approvals: Every city, township, and neighborhood is different, but it always takes time to get the proper approvals. Even though DiFabion Remodeling is savvy to the correct procedures, completing the drawings, submitting the paperwork, answering questions from the city or HOA, and waiting for approval will take time.
- Design Elements: Certain elements and features of your remodel can take time to receive. For example, if your project includes cabinets, it can take about six weeks to have them delivered and ready to install. Ordering materials like tile and fixtures also dig into the timeline, even if the materials are shipped correctly and ready to install.
Pricing Your Charlotte Home Remodel
We want you to feel secure in knowing every penny of your remodel investment is spent wisely. How much DiFabion Remodeling charges are based on several factors. Although we can’t offer a final amount without scoping your project personally, we like to use the familiar scale used by online directories of $, $$, $$$, and $$$$. In our industry, there are generally four types of remodelers:
- The One-Man Band – This type of company tends to be newer. The owner does it all, there are no organizational systems, and they can only handle a few jobs at a time. This would be considered $ since there is little overhead. However, things can go south in a hurry with this type of set up.
- The Owner/Operator – This company is established, and the owner has hired a few key employees. There are some systems in place, and they can handle more jobs. However, they can be wildly inconsistent with their work quality. This one would be $$.
- The Professional Remodeler – This is what we like to call the “sweet spot of remodeling.” This company is well-established with defined departments and systems. They offer consistent products, consistent work quality, and consistent workflow. This would be $$$.
- Complex Remodeler – This company is ready for growth. They have multiple specialties and services. There could even be a board of directors, advanced systems, and personnel. This would be the top tier at $$$$.
Here at DiFabion Remodeling, we like to consider ourselves The Professional Remodeler ($$$). We’re in that sweet spot of offering consistent and top-quality work, personalized service, and organized systems, without having to charge exorbitant prices.
