Our Ten Step Process
Our Proven 10-Step Process Endures
For most homeowners, the idea of home remodeling is a double-edged sword; 1) the relief of finally improving or building your home and 2) the angst knowing you are about to start an exciting new chapter with unknown remodeling contractors. The truth is dealing with some home remodeling and building contractors is absolutely regrettable. However, Sierra Remodeling has refined its homebuilding and home remodeling process over nearly 40 years in business here in the Vistas.
Our process has been developed, scrutinized and changed over time in order to remove all the friction points to you the homeowner. We realize your time, money and perhaps even patience are in short supply and, we do everything within our power to construct the home of your dreams sans all the pain and disruption.

I would like to commend you and your workmen for the great job done on our shower remodeling. The Sierra Remodeling workmen did a super job correcting the problems generated by a subcontractor. The shower looks great.
I want to especially thank you for the quick and cooperative actions you personally took when the brushed pewter fixtures were blemished. I will not hesitate to recommend you and Sierra Remodeling to anyone needing a physical upgrade to their home.
