Selecting a  Contractor

Selecting a Residential Contractor

Why Choose Frame to Finish

Remodels are expensive and can be complex, so selecting the right partner is important. There are many residential contractors in Bellingham, why choose Frame to Finish for your next home remodel? Here are several ways our collaborative approach sets us apart, and sets each home owner up for success! 

We want to know what is important to you

Understanding what you need is the first step to bringing your dream home to life. We want to know what problems you’re trying to solve with this remodel so we can provide the best solution.

Additionally, we want to understand your day-to-day routines that may be impacted by a remodel project. We are more than residential contractors, we are problem solvers. We want to create the spaces you dream about, with a process that is as minimally disruptive to your daily life as possible.

Quality workmanship, guaranteed

Our work is built to last. We don’t do fast, cheap, or easy and we don’t cut corners. We focus on quality, saving you money over the life of the remodel. We meticulously install to manufacturer’s specifications so you’ll always have the full backing of manufacturer warranties. Choosing Frame to Finish as your residential contractor means peace of mind, knowing your investment was wisely made. 

On Time and On Budget

Our proposal process is extensive and thorough, so you’ll always know exactly what to expect during the construction project. Once that proposal is signed, we take great pride in meeting those expectations.

We have a high success rate of completing projects on time and on budget.

Protecting Your Home is a Top Priority

As high quality residential contractors, we commit to treating your home the way we would treat our own, and that means protecting your living spaces from dust and debris. Before any construction work begins, our team applies floor coverings and creates dedicated pathways to protect your floors throughout any entry and exit paths we plan to use.

We also hang sheeting and configure zip walls to create containment areas around the worksite. Whenever possible we employ negative pressure systems to further contain all debris to the dedicated area. We also use HEPA vacuum systems in favor of a standard shop vac or a broom. Simply pushing dust around a room is never the way to remove it. We know living through a remodel is disruptive, we will keep the dust and tools in the work area.

Everyone has a horror story. We’re different.

We all know someone whose remodel went off the rails - significant delays, cost overruns, dust everywhere… you name it. We take client experience very seriously, going into every remodel with a thorough project plan and detailed timeline to prevent these issues from happening. 

How we prevent delays
Our comprehensive timeline serves as the project plan for the entire scope of work. We’ve already considered any constraints or limitations and adjusted the timeline accordingly, if needed. This detailed timeline keeps us on track with hitting our benchmarks, and ensures you know what to expect, when, and for how long.

How we prevent cost overruns
Our thorough proposals include a detailed estimate taking all materials and fixtures into account. The extra time spent in the planning process keeps us on track with costs throughout the project. We proudly stand by our estimates!

How we minimize dust and debris
Protecting your home is a top priority for our team. We spend extra time setting up containment areas, protecting living areas, and cleaning up after the workday. This is built into the timeline as part of our scope and makes a significant difference in customer satisfaction during the project. We commit to keeping dust in the work area!

How we ensure an optimal experience
Communicate, communicate, communicate! Remodels can be complex. We will communicate with you frequently and make sure you are fully informed of anything impacting our work or our timeline.

Choosing the right partner for your home remodel can be the difference between getting the space you want or surviving a horror story. The value we offer comes in fluidity, coordination, and effective movement through a multiphase process.

"Responsive with bidding and completed it on schedule"

We’re glad we chose to go with Ben and Bret and the team at Frame to Finish for our project which included front steps, a landing and new entry door. They were responsive with bidding and our initial inquiry and punctual with the work and completed it on schedule. Best of all, they worked with us on our preferences and were creative about helping us stay within budget which was a big concern for us. They are skilled and operate with integrity and I can’t recommend them enough to others. We love our front steps and new door and will enjoy them for years to come.

"You will be glad you trusted your project to them."

Ben and his crew did a major repair and remodel on a very challenging, older, custom construction home that was an investment property for us. Throughout the project, Ben was friendly, respectful, and easy to communicate with on all things, even challenging, less-than-pleasant issues that came up. Ben delivers very detailed, well-written, clear, responsive emails and explanations on everything going on with your project in a very timely manner. The finished results on the home were stellar and exceeded what we hoped for when the project began.

We will hire them again in a heartbeat. Thank you for being amazing!

"We were so happy with the decks that we had them come back"

We had two cedar decks with railing and stairs built by Frame to Finish and we were so happy with the decks that we had them come back and put in a tile floor in our master bathroom.
They were at all times courteous and professional.
We recommended them to our sister in law, she’s having them do some work in her kitchen. A wonderful group!

"Excellent communication and execution of a wide variety of projects."

Frame to Finish did a major part of the giant remodel we accomplished in 2021 and did beautiful work. Ben and Bret have consistently been excellent at communication and execution of a wide variety of projects. They did general demolition and construction, two bathroom remodels (multiple rooms in both baths), tile wainscot, trim, and tile flooring with in-floor heat, created a custom platform for the raised soaking tub, maple flooring, and laundry room remodel. Ben always had solid advice, was compliant with our personal covid protocol, and was a joy to have around.

"Ben was very straight-forward about what could and should be done."

Ben Jones and his team really came to our rescue after a water pipe burst in October and left a lot of damage on two floors. Ben was very straight-forward about the damage and what could and should be done. We worked out a plan/budget with his help identifying options. Supply chain problems caused some delays, but that wasn't the contractor's fault and Ben did everything possible to adjust to get things done. The crew were polite, responsive, diligent and conscientious about cleaning up. The work was carefully and professionally done. I recommend them without reservation.

"We really enjoyed working with the entire crew.

Ben and crew completed the tile floor, walls and shower for our bathroom remodeling project. We really enjoyed working with the entire crew.

Communication was great and Ben was especially responsive when the inevitable issues arose during the process. Definitely recommend!
