Featured Reviews for Design-Build Firms in Montclair, NJ
Wyanoke Builders
Design-Build Firms in Montclair, NJ
"We have had Wyanoke Builders do two major renovations for us: a kitchen and a totally restructured bathroom, adding a walk in shower. We love the rooms, but more importantly, we loved the efficient, clean, polite and cost controlled way that they were performed. Each carefully managed step of the process was guided by these talented men. We could not have been happier with the process or the results."

Keil Design and Construction, LLC
Design-Build Firms in Montclair, NJ
"Keil Design & Construction is a full service contracting firm. I have worked with them on a variety of project types and scopes (residential, commercial, whole house renovation, kitchen additions, bathroom remodeling). Gordon is honest, easy to get along with, knowlegable and does very nice work. The best recommendation from an architect - I have used them to do work in my own home!"
- Brinkman Architecture, LLC
Property Lab
Design-Build Firms in Montclair, NJ
"Lucas Platt of Property Lab completed a much needed renovation of my kitchen. He has a keen artistic sense and exceeded my expectations with the renovation. Everything was meticulosly planned out and kept within our agreed upon budget. He is reliable and dependable, as are his employees. I would hire him again for any future projects in my home."

R Services, LLC
Design-Build Firms in Montclair, NJ
"We are currently discussing refinishing our deck and backyard entertainment area with R Services. Previously they designed and remodeled my kitchen including making a new opening so dining room wall would fit my heirloom hutch. John worked within our budget so we ultimately opted for fancier tile back-splash instead of granite countertops. All new plumbing and fixtures were installed excellently by Stan of SK Plumbing. John, Sergio and crew worked everyday until new kitchen was up and working."
- Paul & Sally Baumgarten
Showcase Kitchen & Bath
Design-Build Firms in Montclair, NJ
"I hired Showcase to renovate and expand a newly purchased home in Glen RIdge, New Jersey. The project lasted over 15 months in duration and involved renovating the entire house and expanding the home from 2600 square feet (excluding the basement) to 4450 square feet (approximately 5950 square feet including the fully finished basement). The project included a new family room, gym, sauna, downstairs bath, master bedroom, office and master bath. The existing kitchen and three and half baths were demolished and redone. New trim, windows, doors and closets were also installed throughout the original structure. Finally, all the plumbing, heating and air conditioning and electrical systems were replaced. I have extensive experience working with contractors. At my previous home I undertook seven separate remodeling projects ranging from bath and kitchen renovations to the addition of a family room and master suite. I also built a 3000 square foot architectually designed second home in Wisconsin. SHOWCASE WAS BY FAR THE BEST CONTRACTOR I HAVE EVER WORKED WITH AND I WOULD RECOMMEND THEM WITHOUT HESITATION FOR ANY RESIDENTIAL PROJECT. Several things made our experience with Showcase so good: - its a one-stop shop. You get design and build services and they order all the materials. This is highly convienent and allows them to ensure product and service quality. - its a third generation family business. The owners are experienced, reliable and service oriented. They proactively made a number of suggestions which improved the final product. We still frequently call them if we have a question or issue and they are extremely responsive. In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, for example, we had an issue with our natural gas powered back up generator and they showed up and got it fixed within hours of calling. - their construction crew and sub contractors are uniformly outstanding (as you would expect from a large established contractor). Given the project's size and duration we got to know all the key subs very well. The construction foreman, tile guy, plumber and electrician were especially good. They do extremely high quality work and also frequently offered up good suggestions for improvements. Proof of the quality of their work is the fact that we passed every single inspection the first time. - their designer, Haviva, is also very good. While we used our long time architect on the project, Haviva made a number of significant improvements to the original plan. - last, they are fair and reasonable. When issues or unexpected costs came up, we were quickly able to get to a solution that left everybody feeling ok."

Michael Robert Construction
Design-Build Firms in Montclair, NJ
"While we have not technically begun breaking ground on our project yet, my husband and I have been working with Mike from Michael Roberts Construction for the past few months in preparation for our whole house renovation. Mike has been exceedingly patient and helpful in helping us along the planning and design process. My husband and I are both very opinionated, and a bit OCD. Mike has been an amazing help in leading us along to design the house to meet our tastes, while keeping us steadily in line for a realistic plan - in regards to time and money. I appreciate his honestly, expert advice, and constant professionalism throughout what can be a very stressful and momentous time. I look forward to sharing the photos of the project when it is completed by Mike and his talented wife Ellie. Seeing the photos of their home here on Houzz has been a constant source of inspiration, and the reassurance we needed to confirm we made the right decision in hiring Michael Robert Construction."

Creative Design Construction, Inc.
Design-Build Firms in Montclair, NJ
"We are completing a full house renovation and hope to be done in July of this year and so far, on schedule! Creative Design has done an amazing job with all of the details. My husband and I have asked many times to revise/change things along the way and the team has gone above and beyond to make it happen. Creative did our first renovation back in 1999 and we had no doubt that they would do a great job when we hired them again for the entire house. We would recommend Creative Design to anyone without hesitation. They are extremely skilled and very professional!"

Lasley Brahaney Architecture + Construction
Design-Build Firms in Montclair, NJ
"Lasley Brahaney's crew did beautiful work on our new addition. They executed their tasks with skill and professionalism, handling all the details and keeping the stress level as low as possible. The workers were friendly, easy to talk to, and always willing to discuss any aspect of the project. Although our project was not a large one, the owner Marc took personal interest in making sure we were happy with all aspects of the work. We recommend Lasley Brahaney highly, and will definitely use them again if we have future construction projects."

What is a design-build firm?


Design-build firms take on the responsibilities of architects, contractors and construction companies, all under one roof. These full-service firms focus on a streamlined design-build process — from the initial design to the estimating phase to physical construction — in the hope of creating an efficient experience for both the client and the company. Because the entire project is happening within one company, Montclair design-build firms are able to overlap the design and construction phases of the project, which often speeds up the project significantly. In addition, these firms work to minimize risks for the project owner through single-point responsibility contracts. However, depending on the firm, you may still want to contact an interior designer or architect to help create the exact look you want. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of design-build firms: Interior Designers & Decorators, Landscape Architects & Landscape Designers, Architects & Building Designers, Photographers.

Gauge where the estimates are falling to determine which design-build contract can realistically strike the balance between the two.
