Virtual Estimates & Design Consultations

Let’s connect virtually to discuss your project and collaborate ideas.

RingCentral, Zoom, Google Hangouts, or FaceTime.

Let’s Make The Best of This Together

Ideally we’d be meeting face-to-face, but since that isn’t an option now, let’s work together, remotely, to move your home project forward.

Our (Evolving) Process

First, schedule an estimate or design consultation by calling us at 973-635-7900.  You can also schedule an estimate online here. We’ll explain how we’ll handle the estimate or design consultation for your project.

Exterior Estimates

We can easily provide no-contact exterior estimates. We’ll come to your home, discuss what you want over the phone, and take measurements. We should be able to provide you an e-mailed estimate when we are there. We can go over that on the phone, too.

Interior Estimates

For interior home improvement projects, we can use video chat to discuss your project. If you can provide rough measurements, we can provide you with a preliminary estimate. Whenever we can finalize the measurements ourselves, we can finalize your estimate.

Virtual Design Consultations

Through a combination of video chat and screensharing, we can take you through room layouts, cabinetry, tile, countertops, hardware, and fixtures. Bookmark a few of your favorite design ideas from Houzz or other websites to share with your designer during your virtual appoinment. We’ll be able to get very close to your final kitchen or bathroom design during these virtual meet-ups.

Windows, Doors, Flooring & Decking

Similar to a virtual design appointment, our sales specialists will discuss your home improvement project involving windows, doors, decking or flooring. He’ll take you through our products online, and explain the best options for your needs. For exterior work, our Estimators can provide measurements to allow our specialists to order your products.
