We pride ourselves on customer education and customer communication. Our collaborative process helps to make you part of the process, understand the phases and timelines of the project, and ask any questions (or bring up any issues) along the way.

Our goal? No shock. No surprises. Just our way of reducing your stress and ensuring your project runs as smoothly and effortlessly as possible.

We are Fanatics About Customer Service

We live in a world where customer service has become a catchphrase.

Not at FSBD.

Working with us, you will quickly find that our customer responsiveness is uncanny in an industry where many contractors over-promise and under-deliver. And while other companies pay lip service to customer satisfaction, we are fanatics about it. But don’t just take our word for it. Just check out our Google 5-star ratings.

We Offer Superior Workmanship – Bar None

Our staff consists of well-trained experts with years of knowledge and experience in home renovation and design. Our expertise can mean the difference between an indoor or outdoor space that is “nice” to one that is “stellar”.

But don’t take our word for it; check out our customer reviews.

    Our kitchen was a disaster and they worked with us to insure that our renovation was beyond expectations. They are extremely responsive (shout out to Kalee and Nancy) and professional. The whole staff is excellent at problem solving … More and we had plenty of those! We would not hesitate to use them again.

    FSBD were very professional and easy to work with. They gave us exactly what we asked for, and made many suggestions to improve upon our requested design. They took care of any issues that came up quickly and even threw in some extra … More little touches that were not expected but made the project that much better. We especially liked their online interface that allowed us to track the project schedule, so we always knew what was going to happen at any time. We will be using them again in the future!

    We recently had a complete exterior renovation performed on our home by FSBD. I think every service that FSBD provides was utilized for our renovation. We had a large wrap around deck installed, a new entry, new Hardy siding and windows … More installed. Under the back deck we decided to build a functional dry room.
    The workmanship was of the highest quality and the crews were easy to work with. FSBD employees a top-notch design team which is foundational for the crews to work. In addition, the project is assigned a project lead who ensures everything is done correctly and on time (much appreciated). High quality materials were used throughout and the specialized trades such as the trim carpenter and stone masons are true masters.
    We love to spend time on the deck experiencing the forest and grilling. The deck design meets our lifestyle perfectly and we can grill and eat outdoors rain or shine, day or night.
    I recommend FSBD if you are serious about high quality professional workmanship.

    We are so happy with how our outdoor space came out with first state builders! We had a big custom job and they took the task head on. Very professional and talented staff. Detail oriented and quality work!

    We had Sunspace windows and a door installed on our previously screened back porch. We could not be happier with the new look. Our installers, Dave and Nick, earned a 10+ for their work. We will use FSBD again and again if we want work … More done on our home. Thank you again, FSBD
