Expert Guidance for Informed Decisions

Why Use a Home Renovation Consultant?

As the Law Of Attraction dictates that, “If you can see it in your mind, you can hold it in your hand”. The Secret to creating anything (like your Ultimate Dream Home) is having the ability to “picture every detail in your mind”. If you can’t right now, you will when we’re done.

My CDAS (Cognitive Dwelling Assessment System) paired with my experience, allows me to pinpoint every important aspect of your lifestyle requirements, and assist in manifesting a home you’ll love for years to come – and possibly never want to leave!

Our Philosophy

What to Expect from a Home Renovation 

At ABC, we view home renovation consulting not as an expense but as an investment in the future joy and security of your home. My extensive experience in renovation, security, and technology integration, combined with our passion for creating personalized living spaces, positions us uniquely to guide you through this transformative process.

Proactive Inspection to Sidestep Future Woes

Your renovation journey begins with a thorough inspection. This critical step is where we start to safeguard against the common pitfalls of renovation – overspending, delayed timelines, and the stress that too often strains relationships and finances.

Transforming Your Ideas into a Concrete Plan

Renovation is more than altering spaces; it's about enhancing lives. I delve deep into your ideas, valuing your input as the cornerstone of our planning. My approach is to create spaces that reflect your lifestyle and values, steering clear of the one-size-fits-all solutions.

Detailed Strategy to Ensure Smooth Execution

I'll develop a comprehensive plan, meticulously crafted to align with your goals. This structured approach is my way of minimizing the unexpected – those issues that can lead to disputes, financial strain, and the kind of regret that comes from unguided decisions.

Our Home Renovation Consulting Services

I assess my clients in detail to determine their wants and needs and the appropriate team members required for any project. Then, I choose or direct you (so that you may choose) those best suited.

I have the knowledge, experience and ability to dissect and analyze each and every aspect of a given project to determine which/if/when other sources should be involved, saving you energy, time, money, stress (or possibly failure). Remember, your project may be necessary, but grief is not.

"The ultimate professional and a meticulous craftsman to boot."

Al Barnes is the ultimate professional and a meticulous craftsman to boot. He works efficiently, explains things well and is very detailed about his work. With our security system, he advised (and installed) a solid product based on our needs and he always kept aesthetics in mind to be sure that all looked good. Basically, he takes the time to do it right and cares about his customers"

Michael Sensentein

"He takes the time to do it right"

"I have employed and worked with Al many times over the years. He is extremely knowledgeable in the home improvement industry. His attitude is to do the highest quality job possible and that is always reflected in the results of his work. He takes the time to do it right, never taking shortcuts and always ensuring clients full satisfaction with the finished product. He has a burning desire to make every the job his best work and given his skill level in the trades, his best is heads-and-shoulders above most. I would consider his opinions above others for any home renovation or repair project."

Al has consulted us on a number of projects and you can be sure you'll be satisfied with the end result. I would highly recommend him for his integrity and vast knowledge. If you have a question about renovations/construction, there is an extremely good chance that he knows the answer.
