Bathroom Remodeling and the Costs

New Kitchen Remodel Completed in Saratoga, Ca

Remodel West first visited this home in July of 2010 to take initial measurements and assess existing conditions of the house.

Over the next few months, these homeowners would meet with the RemodelWest design team to walk through each step of the design process. Designers Kirk and Sarah…

Our comprehensive approach to remodeling is what encouraged this Cupertino family to hire RemodelWest for their design and construction project.
