We guarantee your kitchen remodel will not exceed the estimated price unless you change the scope of work. We eat unforseen circumstances for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

"The HOMEfix team was amazing from beginning to end! We LOVE our new kitchen! It’s like walking into a retreat every morning." - Erin
We want to be upfront and let you know that we are not the cheapest contractor in Colorado Springs and with good reason. A lot of people end up choosing the cheapest bid. We understand why, but what most folks don't know is that more often than not, they up paying a lot more over time in change orders, fixes from shoddy craftsmanship, and stress that comes with a discount contractor who doesn't listen, communicate, or care about them or their project.
We believe that you deserve better. As a company, our purpose for existing is to improve homes and change lives. We live that out through delivering simplicity, speed, and quality. More specifically, expert craftsmanship, quality materials, and a quality experience.
A house is only as good as the materials its made of (words to live by). Being that kitchens get daily use, it's very important to use quality materials or wear and tear will start to show in a matter of months. Not only will quality materials ensure that your beautiful new kitchen withstands the test of time, but also you can achieve the look and feel you really want with good materials. Through our suppliers, we have access to the materials you need to achieve the end result that you'll be happy with for a long time.
A discount contractor will have no problem installing cheap materials from Home Depot because they're a lot cheaper... in every way. Nothing against Home Depot, we love Home Depot. But when you buy your trim from the same place you buy mulch, you aren't getting quality. They simply don't carry the level of quality and quantity that our suppliers do. You'll save some money upfront with cheap material, but when your flooring starts to scratch and fade and your cabinets start to warp and crack a year after the project, you won't be saving money anymore. In construction, its so much easier to do things the right way with the right materials the first time.
We take great pride in our work. When the craftsmen working in your home are wearing a royal blue HOMEfix shirt, you will have a more seamless remodeling experience. We don't do shortcuts here, because if we did, we would have trouble sleeping, seriously. During your project, it may seem like we take shortcuts. For example, it may take our guys only a day to set cabinets, but it took years to set cabinets in a day. We don't do things the easy way. It's a little more expensive to do things right, but for us, that's the only way. Doing things this way pays off through happy customers that use us for every project they have from year after year and even house to house. If you haven't already, Google "homefix" and read our reviews. Simply stated, our crew is a cut above other remodeling contractors in Colorado Springs (contractor pun intended).If you decide to choose to trust us with your home, you'll know that your crew is comprised of experienced master craftsmen. We do everything we can to minimize the amount of work done by anyone outside the HOMEfix team. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of other remodeling contractors in the Colorado Springs area, who often subcontract the vast majority of the work out to the cheapest crew they can find and ask as few questions as possible before sending them into your house. We don't want to scare you, its sad but true.
We put a lot of time and effort into crafting a customer experience that exceeds expectations. Its a never ending quest that we're on. It all starts by simply caring about you and your family as people. We listen to your vision for your kitchen. Our estimators and production managers are responsive communicators. We work very hard to earn your trust by always doing the right thing, from the first phone call to the final site walk.
We respect you, your family, and your home. We show that respect through details that other contractors might call "the little things". They're a big deal to us because they're a big deal to you. Here are a few examples: we put ram board down on hard floors and plastic down on carpets for protection, we tape plastic over the space to minimize dust, we install zipper doors that are closed during work but don't make your doors completely inaccessible for the whole the project, we even put rags over your registers so dust doesn't get into your HVAC system. We care a great deal that your experience is as smooth and seamless as possible. If there is anything we can do to improve your experience, just let us know. We take every suggestion very seriously because we care!
1. Your Appointment
The process starts when you request an estimate here on our website or give us a call. Sheila or Chelsea will help you find a time that works for your schedule for your initial appointment. Your estimator, Griff or Bryan, will meet you at your home at the scheduled time. We'll start by listening and getting your vision for your new kitchen, taking a look around, taking some measurements, and discussing different options with you.
It's helpful if you have specific ideas and/or pictures of what you'd like. But if you don't, that's okay. Depending on the extent of your project, the appointment should take between 1-2 hours. If you need to reschedule, its no problem, just give us a call ahead of time.
2. Initial Estimate Presentation
After the appointment, you'll then get a call from your estimator within 3 business days to schedule an estimate presentation. They'll walk you through the estimate and answer any and all questions that you have about the project.
About your estimate, we want you to know upfront that we aren't the cheapest remodeler in town and we aren't trying to be. There are a lot of ways to cut corners in our industry. We choose not to.
The two biggest factors that contribute to our costs are: 1. we use quality materials that will be aesthetically pleasing and durable and 2. we hire experienced craftsmen and pay them a fair wage.
When you're ready to get started, you'll confirm and approve the details of the estimate with an initial deposit.
4. Material Selection
We will set up a time to sit down and decide what materials you'd like to use for your new space. Then we'll get those materials ordered.
5. Subcontractor Walk
We'll have our HVAC guy, our electrician, and/or our plumber come out to take a look at your project and take measurements so they can give us quotes on their work.
6. Final Estimate
Your final estimate shouldn't be too far off from the initial estimate. But occasionally, our subcontractors let us know that a project will cost more than normal due to unique circumstances.
Once we present the final estimate to you, we guarantee that your project will not exceed the estimated amount unless you change the scope of work. That includes unforeseen circumstances. We eat unforeseen circumstances for breakfast.
7. Materials Arrive
Your new materials will be delivered to your house. We typically will keep them in the garage, but we can put them wherever is most convenient for you as long as they're out of the way so they can get started quickly.
8. Site Walk and Schedule
At this point, your estimator will schedule a site walk and you'll be introduced to your production manager, it'll be Bryan Bunting or Ben Wilder (fun fact: both are veterans). This is the guy who will be leading the project. He'll provide you with a project schedule and firm deadline.
Sit back and relax knowing you're in good hands with a company that truly cares about you, your family, and your home. Your production manager will be giving you updates throughout the project. For efficiency, please direct any and all questions to your production manager from this point forward.
10. Final Site Walk
After work is complete, we'll do one last site walk with you and make sure everything is perfect. If we need to touch anything up we'll make sure that gets done as quickly as possible. We also send a professional cleaning service in at the end of the project. Her name is Tess and we love her.
Share your new kitchen with your family and friends! We hope your new space allows you to make new connections, build relationships, make memories, and enjoy life a little bit more.
SOMETHING WILL PROBABLY GO WRONG
We've been remodeling in Colorado Springs for a long time. Over the years, we’ve found that if you expect a project to go absolutely perfectly, there's a very good chance you'll be disappointed.
As our old friend Murphy put it, “anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.” Construction is definitely no stranger to Murphy's Law simply due to the number of moving pieces that are involved. We rely on a lot of things that are outside of our control to get the job done right, some of whom aren't a part of our team, specifically our suppliers and subcontractors (plumbing, HVAC, electrician, etc.). We do everything we can to make the process as painless as possible for you, we've found it's best tostart by expecting that your everyday life will be slightly interrupted. Here’s a list of things that can and do go wrong during a remodel:
Here’s what you can expect from us:
We do everything in our power to deliver a seamless remodeling experience for you and your family. You have our word.
There's no such thing as a "one-size-fits-all" kitchen design. We listen to your needs and desires, and come up with a customized kitchen design based on your needs and desires, while keeping within your budget.
This means your end result will not but generic or builder-grade. Your estimator will be a knowledgeable design expert help you come up with your ideal kitchen design. This knowledge has been accumulated by doing hundreds of remodels in the Colorado Springs, El Paso County, greater Pike's Peak area. We also share our Academy showroom with our good friends at DesignCents, a local independent interior design firm. We share a genuine passion for good design. Watch our interview with Gidget Webster, the owner of DesignCents here: Is There Such a Thing as Timeless Design?

We've all heard over and over again that real estate is one of the best investments you can make. The thought process is that over time, a home appreciates in value. And that's almost always true, but what separates your house from the similar houses in your area? Are you confident that your real estate agent will be able to sell your house for max value? Ask anyone in real estate and they'll tell you what seals the deal between two similar properties: the kitchen! For information to back that up, check out the NAR's 2019 Remodeling Impact Report.
But here's what folks don't know, it takes time to come out ahead on a remodeling project. When we watch Fixer Upper (one of our favorite shows) they flip the house and almost always create instant equity. That may be true for a Joanna Gaines flip in Waco, Texas ( I mean, who are we to question HGTV??) but its very, very rare for a remodel in Colorado Springs. However! If you're planning to be in your home for another 3-5 years, that investment will almost certainly pay itself off and with time, it becomes highly likely that you'll come out ahead in the end when you put the house on the market with a beautiful up-to-date kitchen. Not to mention that you get to actually enjoy having a new kitchen for another 3-5 years.
Pro Tip: a huge factor of selling a home quickly that very few people think about is a clean inspection report. As you might already know, an inspection report can easily cause a sale to fall through. A lot of folks tend to put off getting those little fixes around the house squared away because they're busy and those fixes just not a high priority, which is understandable. But those little fixes have a tendency to get worse over time, they don't get better or go away. Its really is best to punch those little fixes out quickly before they become big issues.
HOMEfix isn't ONLY a remodeling contractor, we also have a handyman as well as a roofing division. So click one of the 'Request an Estimate' buttons to start punching out those little fixes around the house asap and look forward to having the only house in town with a clean inspection report.
Your kitchen is one of the most functional parts of the home, so having it perform just as you want is important. Not to mention, no one wants to invite guests into the heart of their home if they're unhappy with what it looks like. A few signs kitchen remodeling is a good option for your home include:
Overall, if your kitchen doesn't serve you and your family well, it is a good indication that a kitchen remodel could be a good solution. Upgrading your kitchen can bring value to your home, so prolonging a kitchen remodel is rarely a good idea. Contact us today to discuss the problems you have with your current kitchen so we can determine if a kitchen remodel or refresh is the right option.
Professional kitchen remodelers should be licensed general contractors. We have a B-1 license with Pikes Peak Regional Building Department and have a great reputation with them. Homefix only employs the highest level craftsmen for all our kitchen remodeling projects. Each member of our team is fully vetted, insured, and trained to perform the highest quality of work.
Occasionally, building codes in Colorado Springs dictate how things can happen during a kitchen remodeling job. Additionally, certain permits may have to be obtained in special circumstances. For example, if we are moving a lot of plumbing or removing a load-bearing wall, we are required to pull a permit. Rest assured, whatever guidelines there may be in place, Homefix makes sure each is properly followed.
For Webster, success is the accomplishment of an aim or purpose. For us, success is you being pleased with the form, function, and experience that we deliver to you and your family. We believe that a more functional and beautiful kitchen can change how you feel when you start your day, or host your family and friends, or unwind at the end of the day. We believe that home should be a place of peace, rest, and relaxation. In this way, we believe that the work of our hands can and does change people's lives and we take great pride in that.
