Customer’s Bill of Rights

The remodeling Customer’s Bill of Rights was created for homeowners who have come to expect the nightmare project that is so prevalent in the remodeling industry.



At Republic West Remodeling, we’re proud of the more than 17,000 home remodeling projects we’ve completed since 1995 – kitchen and bath remodels, whole house remodels, room additions, and outdoor living spaces – all projects that have added value and function to our clients’ homes.


Outdoor Living Spaces in Phoenix

Among the many great things about living in this area is the wonderful climate and beautiful views that surround us. Outdoor living spaces give you the perfect way to enjoy this unique environment to the fullest. If your property doesn’t currently provide the outdoor living spaces you would like, we can help.

What are my options for outdoor living spaces?

The possibilities are nearly endless. Your options are limited only by your imagination, property lines and budget. Our team has the creativity and experience that allows them to come up with an amazing design that can work for you, no matter what your budget or space parameters.

What are some features I can include in my outdoor living space?

You have a lot of options. Among the most popular choices for outdoor living spaces are water features such as fountains and ponds. Many people also want to have a way to escape the direct sunlight and heat, so elements such as canopies and pergolas are great options for that purpose. If space allows, a gazebo is a terrific way to set your outdoor space apart in an impressive way.

How can I make the most of outdoor living spaces for entertaining?

Outdoor spaces are terrific for entertaining! There are many ways to take advantage of this space to use for hosting events and providing a great environment to socialize with family and friends. Arranging seating and furniture strategically can help you establish separate areas while also encouraging people to gather in small groups. You can use a feature such as a fire pit as a central focal point. If you like to include meals as part of your events, consider incorporating a barbecue station or even an outdoor kitchen into your plan.

What if I have a small space or one with an unusual layout?

We have created amazing outdoor living areas in virtually every type of space you can imagine. Our designers have the skills and creativity to put together several great options that will work for you, no matter what type of space you have. With a little bit of imagination, virtually any property can be the perfect location for outdoor living spaces.

Can I afford to add outdoor living spaces to my property?

We think you will find that this is more affordable than you may expect. While there are many factors that will affect the final cost, there are often a variety of ways to help manage expenses and keep the overall costs down. Remember also that this is an investment. The money you spend developing your outdoor spaces can increase your total property value.

It’s important to choose the right outdoor living remodeling contractor because selecting the wrong one can lead to wasting precious time and money, suffering extreme frustration and having a terrible overall experience.

The best way to go about choosing the right contractor is not to hear it from the contractor, but to hear it from their clients. In fact, some of our customers have been kind enough to share their stories with you:

OUR Commitment to you

We are committed to providing a great experience to you throughout the entire remodeling process – from creative design to detailed planning to execution and construction. We do this by adhering to a strict set of guidelines that serve as the foundation of our process.

By ensuring certainty on cost, time and quality, we can help make sure our customers never experience a nightmare project.

experience the difference

Cost Certainty

The #1 remodeling nightmare is that the final cost on a custom remodeling project has little resemblance to the upfront cost that was presented when the initial contract was signed.  We call this “cost creep.” If your budget is not handled correctly, cost creep will become an absolute fact of your remodeling project.  We provide a breakdown of project scope, line-by-line, giving each customer Cost Certainty.

Time Certainty

If cost variance is the #1 remodeling nightmare, the never-ending project is clearly #2.  As a customer, you should have a clear projection of how long actual construction and execution should take, from the very start of the process.  Custom remodeling is never painless and always difficult, but all parties should agree on a definitive plan that can be achieved. We strive to keep your inconvenience to an absolute minimum, through what we call Time Certainty.

Quality Certainty

We use only the highest-quality materials, and install everything for maximum dependability. By combining superior materials, skilled workmanship, and the industry’s best warranties, you can be assured that your remodel or home addition represents a smart total investment – plus, it’s one that you and your family will enjoy for many years to come.

Remodeling customer’s bill of rights

Many homeowners have come to expect the nightmare project that is so prevalent in the remodeling industry. We would like to change that, and so we’ve developed the Remodeling Customer’s Bill of Rights.

    An outdoor kitchen not only expands your current living space, but it also allows you to cook, eat and entertain without having to book a reservation at the latest trendy hot spot.

They can be as simple as a BBQ, table and chairs, or as elaborate as a fully outfitted kitchen complete with built-in appliances and seating. And while a Read More
