Before you begin gutting and demolition, it’s important to communicate with Sierra Remodeling experts and carefully research and plan your remodeling project. It’s a big, big undertaking and, we assure you, your proper planning and partnering with us will save you time, money and frustration.
Where to begin
We recommend you check with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and review the contractor’s record and any complaints. Also make sure the remodeling firm is licensed with the Arizona Registrar of Contractors (ROC). Sierra Remodeling’s ROC Licenses are #080355 and #066290. We encourage you to request referrals from us and read our clients’ comments too.
Evaluate your existing home
Remember, the dollars you pay for a thorough home inspection will help identify those hidden issues that could cost you thousands of dollars after your home is remodeled! Sierra Remodeling ensures the home inspection is carefully and meticulously conducted. If there are any doubts raised during the evaluation, we will keep investigating until you are sure of the assessment.
Draft a reasonable wish list
An honest evaluation will ensure critical home problems are identified up-front and fixed during the remodeling project.
Sierra Remodeling’s professionals will assist you in finalizing your wish list ensuring your must-haves are in line with your home evaluation and budget. We will also be mindful that the final outcome will be your wishes not our designer’s vision. We listen!
At Sierra Remodeling, our vast experience allows us to quote more precise estimates and actual costs, not ballpark figures. You can be confident that our cited contract costs will be very close to the actual billed amounts and the total cost to you at the end of the project. Realize if you make changes during the course of the remodel or home build, there will be additional charges and more time will be needed to complete your project. Again, your solid up-front planning and sound communications with our staff will help you ensure changes will be not be necessary.
Secure and pin down finances
Our customers generally have to weigh between getting a Home Equity loan versus a Reverse Mortgage loan versus taking out considerable savings or investments. To help you with financing your remodel, Sierra Remodeling has partnered with Wells Fargo and, we currently offer Home Improvement loans with rates as low as 7% for 60 months.
Finally, we recommend budgeting ten to twenty percent additional funds for those unexpected issues that are discovered during the remodel and, must be repaired. This frequently occurs when problems are not identified during your home’s evaluation and generally, the older the home the more prone it is to cost overruns.
Hire a team of experts
Lots of contractors pretend to be licensed. To find out if a contractor’s ROC license is current and see other information related to the license, visit the Arizona Registrar of Contractors (ROC).

We have been serving and building the surrounding communities since 1979 and, our Better Business Bureau rating is A+! We invite you to review our records at the ROC and the BBB! Take some time to read our many Clients Comments which will give you a better insight into our company and our staff.
My husband and I decided to use your companies remodeling services when we watched Joe and Danette F.’s home being built in 2004. We met Scott Miller your salesman, and relayed to him what we thought we might want our addition to look like. Scott was very thorough and confident with his design, and incorporated the ideas that we wanted with ease. We decided to have our remodel start in November 2004, and Scott was very accommodating, showing us step by step what we were to expect of your company in a reasonable time frame, about 3 months. A schedule of payments was submitted by us through all phases of the work.
The crew was very respectful of our home and us. Tom and Isa, spent several days here and we noticed that all of your employees were able to do any of the tasks up to code. Greg Miller, the lead framer helped us plan out little extra details that we had not thought of. David Westover did the stucco, drywall and painting and everything matches the existing home and looks very professional. Greg Larrision did the final trim, and Deb Taylor did the final cleanup inside our home as well as the outside. Your crew was here every day at the same time, and left our home in a clean and neat fashion before they left for the day. Our home was completed 2 weeks ahead of schedule.
We don’t want to forget Jeremy, we don’t want to forget his time and effort in this project. He seems to be getting trained for his position quite well.
We are very pleased with the work that was done and we will highly recommend your company to anyone looking for a new home to be built or a remodeling job.
