What Makes a Design-Build Remodel Different?
Meadowlark is a Design + Build firm. That means we approach our Ann Arbor remodeling projects a little differently than a traditional contractor. When you work with our team of experienced designers and builders, you'll realize a few important differences:
A design that works for you
A design-build firm like Meadowlark starts the remodeling process by talking to you, one-on-one. We work to discover what you're hoping to accomplish with this project and then develop innovative solutions that achieve your goals. You work directly with an expert designer dedicated to your project to develop a remodel plan that flows into your existing home and that's perfect for you.
A seamless remodeling process, from start to finish
At a design-build firm, designers, project managers and construction professionals are in constant contact, which means our design team develops a design that fits your goals, but that's also practical for the building process. Should any issues arise during construction, builders and designers are already working shoulder-to-shoulder and can easily address problems on the fly. For you, all of this communication works to deliver a streamlined remodeling process that's value-engineered from start to finish.
The remodel you want, without the fuss
Any home remodel can feel hectic. With so many decisions to make and more than a few moving parts, design-build firms like Meadowlark work to take out as much of the stress as possible by offering clear guidance, straightforward timelines, and exceptional craftsmanship. When you work with Meadowlark, you get a true remodeling partner — not just a builder — to ensure your home is well cared for now and in the future.
