Kitchen Remodel Specialists

The decision to remodel your kitchen or bathroom is one of the best investments you can make to your home. Generally, a kitchen and bathroom is a true give away on the age of the home, along with an indicator on the type of care has been given to the home. Ultimately, both rooms receive daily abuse, and careful planning and design is the key to a successful remodel.

Generally, we only have one active project at a time, which results in speeding up the time duration associated with a project. Along, with increasing the accuracy associated with the project. This formula of making your project as a priority is an uncommon attribute in the remodeling and renovation industry. Please consider American Building & Design for your upcoming kitchen remodel/bathroom remodel.

Attic Renovations, Basement Renovation, and Bonus Rooms
If you are looking to expand your household into an unfinished area of your home, please consider American Building & Design. Both attic and basement renovations have strict “life safety” codes which must be abided to and sometimes they make a project a little bit more challenging. However, there normally is a solution to such codes.
Another long term issue is proper ventilation to the new space, which is commonly overlooked on such projects. This issue is also related to heating and cooling.

An intrusive aspect of an attic or a bonus room renovation is getting the necessary electrical, pluming, and heating to such areas. This generally requires minor alteration in the finished area of your home to get the necessary trades into the proposed room.

The design of the project is performed in-house, and generally numerous revisions are required before all the details ironed out. The next step is applying for the necessary permitting process. Generally, we subcontract the site work associated with the project, however we have at time done the necessary site work.

The following phases follow:

  • Necessary water proofing if applicable
  • Frame structure
    - Traditional “box framing”
  • Install all doors and windows

Staircase, Interior Trim, Cabinetry
The corner stone of American Building & Design is our attention to detail, which translates into all categories of interior, exterior trim, cabinetry, and staircases. We have a large wood shop, which gives us the ability to construct the following off site:

  • Custom built kitchens
  • Custom built bathroom vanities
  • Custom built entertainment cabinets and book shelves
  • Custom built staircase
  • Custom built newel posts
  • Custom built balusters and rail systems
  • Custom made window casings and door casings
  • Coffered ceilings
  • Crown molding
  • Custom built counter tops
  • Custom built mantles
  • Duplicating historic trim
  • Wood flooring
  • Wood carving

Our background of fine wood working has resulted in a lot of business through the years. We pride ourselves on our finished product, and we are constantly looking to improve the craft of our finish work. The industry has a fast track approach towards interior trim, staircase, and cabinetry; because allot of the time the wood work is “paint grade”, therefore the attitude is chalking and wood filler. This general attitude translates into a low grade appearance, and also reflects on the entire project. As the owner, I will not accept nor place my name on low grade trim, cabinetry, and/or staircases.  

The bottom line; If attention to detail is important to you; please contact American Building & Design.

Window Replacement, New Construction windows, Door system
A simple and affective energy saver is updating the windows and doors of your home. Both the window and door industry have captured the latest technology with improved appearance. Generally, a window replacement project is straight forward and is relatively fast; however the draw back of this type of project is less glass than original window. As well as less than thorough insulation in the original window frame. Therefore, it is generally recommended to replace the entire windows system. However, there is a greater cost in doing so.

  • Harvey widows
  • Anderson
  • Pella
  • Marvin
