We focus on design and the customers say “WOW!”

Meet The Transitions Team

We have assembled a fantastic team here to serve you. We have 15 skilled individuals who have worked together as a single unit for many years. Over half of our team has been with us since we opened in 2006. The rest of our team has been added along the way to serve our growing needs. Our success is in our ability to assist each other in overcoming obstacles that would otherwise make complicated designs difficult to build. We are proud to say that you will be comfortable with each member of our team working in your home, not only in the skill level and respect of your home but in the quality of the people we work with.

We’re Family

My wife and I founded Transitions in April of 2006 in order to provide a superior remodeling experience with expert craftsmanship to our clients. We knew that we could provide better and smoother service if everything needed for your project could be provided in one location, with one team responsible for every detail of the finished product. We achieve this by providing our clients with experienced designers in a showroom environment where all of the latest products you need to complete your project are on display. Our designers will present you with design options and guide you with materials and color selections. We want to oversee a project from concept to completion and hold our customer’s hand the whole way. We manage the planning and deal with all of the challenges and issues that inevitably show up during remodeling. Our clients are busy people with a lot on their plates. We understand that remodeling can be disruptive and stressful and we want to make it simple, beautiful, on time and on budget. We strive to treat our customers with the respect that they deserve.

Working with Building Professionals

A large part of our business is working with builders, architects and interior designers. We are happy to work with your contractor. Contractors are likely to be repeat customers, so we treat them as our partners. We offer services to contractors directly and customers working with a contractor. These services range from design and materials only to cabinet and appliance installation.
