Frequently Asked Questions

Which areas does Remodel Boutique serve?

Remodel Boutique serves all areas in the Austin city limits within Travis County. We do a lot of remodels in the Windsor Park, Mueller, Pecan Springs, and Springdale areas, so we are especially knowledgeable about the houses and unique challenges posed in those neighborhoods.

How much will my remodel cost?

It is difficult to say exactly how much your Austin-area remodel will cost since each project has unique variables, but most of Remodel Boutique’s projects typically fall within these ranges:

  • Bathroom remodel: $20K – $40K
  • Kitchen remodel: $30K – $75K, plus appliances
  • Whole house remodel/addition: $150K – $500K
  • Exteriors (decks, patios, landscaping, etc.): $20K – $50K

We encourage you to schedule a free consultation call to discuss your exact needs and learn more about what your remodel will likely cost.

How long will my remodel take?

Timelines for remodels can vary depending on many factors, but the majority of Remodel Boutique’s projects are completed within six to nine months of signing the contract. The planning and design phases typically take the most time, with actual construction occurring over the span of one to six months. Your remodel will move along much more quickly if you are not living in the house during construction.

Why should I hire Remodel Boutique for my Austin-area remodel?

Remodel Boutique is not your typical design + build firm. We are a small, women-and-minority-owned business that is committed to providing all of our clients with top-tier service. We take pride in our flexibility and ability to find simple solutions to complex challenges. Our collective life experiences give us perspective on housing needs from a wide range of people, including first-time homeowners, families, and homeowners looking to gracefully age in place or incorporate accessibility features.

When it comes to design, we love taking the old and adding modern touches so we remain true to the soul of the home and its inhabitants. We believe your home should reflect who you are; perfection is boring.

Collaboration, communication, and transparency are core components of every step of our process. We utilize Basecamp to communicate throughout the life of your project, which helps ensure that both parties have a clear record of decisions, timelines, and expectations.

If you’re looking for someone who will be a true partner to you throughout this major life decision, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

How can I pay for my Austin-area remodel?

Remodels and home improvement projects are typically paid via cash, financing, or a combination of the two.

For projects that require financing, most of our clients use home equity loans or home improvement loans from a financial institution of their choosing. Remodel Boutique also has access to a finance broker to get our clients good deals on financing for projects up to $100,000. It’s a soft pull on your credit to get pre-qualified, which means it won’t affect your credit score. If you’re interested in seeing what’s available, you can check it out here.

Payments for your remodel occur at defined intervals throughout the project, which makes it easy to utilize various forms of financing.

Can I hire Remodel Boutique to design my DIY project or build a project designed by someone else?

Since Remodel Boutique is a design + build firm, we generally do not offer design-only or build-only services. The reasoning behind this is that our prices aren’t as competitive once you split it out to just design or just build. When we design and build your space as a cohesive process, we are able to develop practical layouts and make design selections that get the most bang for your buck.

Can I buy a move-in-ready house from Remodel Boutique?

In addition to providing design + build services in Austin, we also renovate houses for private sale. If you’re interested in learning more about move-in-ready Austin houses we are currently working on, please email us at howdy at remodelb.com.
