Why Integrity Matters with Your Design-Build Team

Integrity matters.

We have been exploring what it takes to have a good relationship with your design-build team – you know, the people who may be in and out of your home over the course of six months or longer, transforming your space into something you will have to live with long after they’ve packed up their tools and walked away.

Trust is critical, but just like a solid home, trust is built on a firm foundation. That foundation consists of communication, transparency, and accountability. This foundation leads to another crucial aspect of a successful relationship: integrity.

What Is Integrity?

Integrity is defined as “the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness.” Here at Nip Tuck Remodeling, we define integrity as “doing the right thing, even when no one is looking.”

It’s a key factor in our ability to build a trusting relationship with every homeowner.

What Does Integrity Feel Like During the Design-Build Remodeling Process?

What does integrity feel like when we’re working on your home? It’s a feeling of being at peace – not only with the plan and the changes being made to your home – but with the people doing the work. You can relax because you know we are taking responsibility for every part of the process. You feel safe and comfortable with the people who come in and out of your home every day.

And you know that if you have a question or concern, it will be answered. The reason you feel that way, though, is because of the commitment we make to take responsibility for the project and every aspect of achieving your goals. It’s knowing that if we do run into an issue, we’re not just going to cover it up; we’re going to talk to you about it and find a way to fix it. It means we’re going to be honest with you about structural decisions and aesthetic ones. It means you have an equal seat at the table when it comes to your home and the changes we’re making. And it means we come to you as top experts in our industry.

On Time

Having integrity means meeting commitments and keeping promises. It means that when we say something will be completed, it will be. If there are delays, then there are clear and valid reasons for them that will be communicated to you along with alternatives for resolving the delays.

On Budget

We won’t overdesign your home. Your remodeling investment will be what we agreed it would be; surprises are at a minimum because we’ve discussed any potential issues in advance. All along the way, we will honor your budget by selecting appropriate materials for your home, working to prioritize the most meaningful changes, and never trying to slip in extra work you didn’t ask for.

On Purpose

Everything we do is purposeful and designed to bring us closer to the transformation you have been waiting for. We don’t approach your project haphazardly, and we don’t do the work in your home without a clear plan and timeline.

We Take No Shotcuts

When we agree to use specific materials in your remodel, we won’t swap them out with something cheaper or of poorer quality when you’re not looking. We don’t take shortcuts to finish faster; we do it the right way, every time.

A good design-build team keeps their promises and does the job well, but more than that, a good design-build firm nurtures a culture in which everyone you come into contact with embraces the same core values and exhibits that integrity in everything they do.

At Nip Tuck Remodeling, we take great pride in our work and value our client relationships above all.

We can’t wait to help you dream big. If you’re ready to take the next step in your home remodeling journey, let’s plan together.

Don’t just take our word for it.

Read what Terry Sanders from Issaquah, Washington had to say about Nip Tuck:

We had an excellent experience with Nip Tuck Remodeling for our recent house project. The project truly was on time, on budget and done with purpose as advertised. We added new hardwoods/stained old hardwoods throughout the main floor, added a new entryway stair system, combined our kitchen/dining room by removing a wall, painted the entire first floor (including woodwork), and made other minor updates to the first floor of the house. Both my husband and I are very happy with the outcome and love our updated home!
