How Design Build Companies Can Transform Your Home
What Makes Alpha Design + Build Different from the Competition?
Alpha’s process has been honed over 30 years in the industry. We rely heavily on your input as you communicate with your designer, project manager, and craftsmen to bring your vision of your home to life.
We’ll start with a no-cost, in-home consultation to see your space, get to know you, and talk about ideas and budget. Once your design agreement is signed, we get to work taking pictures and measurements of your site, which we’ll use to present a preliminary 3-D design and an estimate with allowances.
Do you want to remodel your home?
Are you worried about the amount of work involved?
Over the last year, we’ve all been spending more time at home. Since the start of 2020, you might have noticed that you’re outgrowing your space. You might need more storage, or you might find that your kids have outgrown their bedrooms.
Tackling a remodel for more than one room or even your whole home can be overwhelming. While it’s tempting to do a DIY remodel, you want to make sure the job is done right.
Think of how lovely your home will look when the work is done by professional architects, designers, and craftsmen!
What is Design-Build?
Design-build contractors offer a model based on collaboration. The designer and builder are working together as a team to come up with a design that works functionally, aesthetically, and financially. It’s important to find such a company that’s honest, competent, and does great work.
You’ve probably heard horror stories about contractors that don’t do the job correctly, continually add unexpected costs that push you over your budget, or don’t finish the job at all! Making sure your needs are met is our top priority.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could see what your project will look like before work begins? You’ll be able to see your vision come to life right before your eyes.
We’ll present you with a final design based on your selections and feedback along the way. We’ll ask you to sign a construction agreement and you’ll be on your way to a beautiful new living space!
Why choose us? Other companies go in with a low price and then add extra costs along the way. As a result, you may go over budget. We work hard to present a realistic cost up front and do work at the beginning to select products and finishes to minimize variances in your final cost.
Whether it’s a kitchen, bath, basement, addition, or remodeling your entire house, we’ve built our 30+ year reputation on exacting design and workmanship. Our designers, project managers, craftsmen, and trades partners take immense pride in their work and in providing smiles from start to finish!
All smiles from start to finish!
We came to love our team! Frank became part of the family. Every day the house was cleaned and organized. And Mary had great design ideas and listened to our passions to create the best spa experience.
Todd and Trisha, Commerce Twp., MI
The whole team was approachable and responsive to my emails and questions. I would recommend this company for any project, big or small.
Louise, Ann Arbor, MI
The deciding factor in choosing to work with Alpha was their confidence in the project and completion time line. They have done other renovations for us and it was a positive experience once again.
Debbie, Chelsea, MI
We felt very comfortable when we initially visited Alpha. We felt the staff was open, honest, and wouldn't mislead us.
Jeffrey & Kim, Ypsilanti, MI
Alpha Design's priorities are happy customers!
Hugh, Ann Arbor, MI
Cy was a fabulous construction manager. Always communicated with me about any issues, arrival time, etc... So polite and kind. Mary was also so great. She's so creative!
Karen & Dave, Ann Arbor, MI
We appreciate the quality of the work by everyone who came to our house. Dan Mattes was very patient and helpful and answered all of our questions. Our new bathrooms are great!
Steve and Melissa, Ann Arbor, MI
The entire Alpha team was so nice to work with. Every person we dealt with knew their craft and the final product is an example of that.
Jonathan and Amanda, Ann Arbor, MI
We liked the people. Good working relationship. Design fit our vision. Materials and workmanship were high quality. We would definitely use you again on a future project.
Brian and Joey, Ann Arbor, MI
Ken, Mary, and Phil made the renovation process for our bathroom-laundry room pretty painless. They kept us in the loop, cleaned up at the end of the day, and always demonstrated a high level of professionalism (early/on-time, respectful, reliable, etc.) which made them stand out compared to all the other contractors we contacted.
Adrianne and Chris, Ann Arbor, MI
The new bathroom is great. It was a very positive experience from beginning to end. The quality of the people working for
Alpha is a real credit to the company.
Chris and Pam, Ann Arbor, MI
When it comes to design, cost management and construction, the team at Alpha made me feel confident and reassured that my project would be completed on time and on budget.
Jeff and Mary, Ann Arbor, MI
I have nothing but good things to say about Alpha and what they did for us and our house. What Alpha says they will do, they do. Everyone I talked to had a horror story about contractors. Alpha is the anti-horror story. Alpha is that rarest of commodities – a genuinely reliable contractor.
Tony and Lisa, Ann Arbor, MI
I would highly recommend Alpha to others. The company workers are courteous, show respect and concern for the customer and demonstrate careful and fine workmanship.
Sara, Ann Arbor, MI
In our initial meeting, Alpha was very informative giving us a step-by-step on how and when things happen through the remodel process. Alpha took what seemed to us an overwhelming job and made it a very clear, step-by-step process ending in a great new kitchen!
George and Barb, Pinckney, MI
I absolutely love my house now. It looks brand new, and I have received many compliments from my neighbors (some of whom I have never spoken to before).
Kathy, Saline, MI
To the Alpha team who helped our kitchen be such a wonderful place for us to hang out, cook, and simply enjoy. If we had it to do over again, we wouldn’t change a single thing. We were most impressed with the professionalism you people displayed while working with us. Thank you.
Fred and Barbara, Ann Arbor, MI
We had Alpha build a two-story addition on our 1927 Dutch Colonial house. The design team at Alpha did such a good job of matching the style of the house that people who see it now believe it was all part of the original house.
