Why Choose Calyx Builds Over “Bargain” Contractors? 😀

 When it comes to remodeling your home, the decision to choose the right contractor can be daunting. Do you opt for the smaller, more cost-effective remodeler or invest in a reputable company like Calyx Builds? While cost is undoubtedly a significant factor, there are compelling reasons why working with Calyx Builds can be a game-changer in elevating your home renovation experience. We have heard countless contractor horror stories from Customers who have contacted us to fix something that a “Bargain” Contractor was originally hired for. Not all ghost their clients taking their hard-earned money never to return or complete the work, but some do. Many “Bargain” contractors operate illegally without a Contractors License, insurance or permits, so they are not held accountable by the legalities of building codes and peers. This leaves projects done unsafely, with low-grade materials and quite often poorly crafted. So, what does Calyx offer that makes us worth your business? Peace-of-mind.

Comprehensive Services: Unlike smaller remodelers who may have a limited range of services, Calyx Builds offers comprehensive solutions for all your remodeling needs. Whether you're looking to renovate your kitchen, bathroom, or entire home, we have the expertise and resources to handle projects of any size and complexity. From initial design consultation to final touches, we provide end-to-end solutions, saving you time and hassle.

Expertise and Experience: Calyx Builds brings a wealth of expertise and experience to the table. With years in the industry, and over 300 homes built, we have honed our craft, mastering the art of home remodeling. From intricate designs to structural integrity, our team possesses the knowledge and skills necessary to bring your vision to life seamlessly. Being a New England based company means facing challenges in historical and older homes that many of our competitors either lack the knowledge, experience or resources to meet head on. Calyx projects are done safely and correctly utilizing our connections with designers, architects, and engineers to ensure the structural integrity of every home we work in. Calyx holds Memberships with Rhode Island Builders association, maintains professional relationships with building officials and has a detailed contact list of specialized Trade Partners.

Quality Assurance: One of the most significant advantages of choosing Calyx Builds is our commitment to quality. While smaller remodelers may offer lower prices, the quality of their work may be questionable. Calyx prioritizes quality at every step of the process. We use premium materials, employ skilled craftsmen, and adhere to rigorous quality standards to ensure Customer satisfaction. We ensure that Customers have the opportunity to review the project at its end and compile a list with their team of items that they feel need to be addressed. Calyx Builds trust by completing each project to the satisfaction of our Customers and we take great pride in our work and commitment to quality.

Support and Communication: One of the chief concerns many consumers have is a lack in communication with their contractor. Calyx strives to ensure we provide our Customers with a fully accessible Project Management Team which includes Senior Project Management oversight, a hands-on Project Manager that works on site with a team of carpenters and an administrative based Assistant Project Manager that keeps the information and updates flowing on a customer accessible application named Ressio. Our Customers are provided with regular updates as the project progresses and we work to address all aspects of project transparently and in real time with open and clear communication. This includes your schedule from start to finish as well as updates to any changes in scheduling that may happen. Our customers can message directly through the Ressio app, view photos, documents, and financials as they happen!

Safety and Security: Calyx works hard to ensure our Customers are confident that they are in good hands. Calyx and all our Trade partners are established, licensed, and fully insured. All Calyx Builds employees are background checked and all our Trade Partners have been vetted to guarantee the safety and security of the people and homes we work with. We have long standing relationships with our Trade Partners and Vendors who back their work and products with warranties and offer our Customers our Contractor pricing.

Targeted Estimates and Long-Term Value: While the upfront cost may seem higher than that of smaller remodelers, it's essential to consider that we strive to include all possible contingencies. Our goal is to provide the most accurate estimates targeted to minimize the potential of hidden costs through the project. We base our estimates on all known factors and build in costs for products, contingencies, materials, and labor. Of course, there may be hidden factors that are not discovered until demolition, however, we do our best to plan and price out contingences for each project. Our commitment to honesty and quality means that your investment in your remodel will stand the test of time, adding lasting value to your home.
