Hammerdown Home Renovations is a design-build company. When you choose Hammerdown for your bathroom renovation, kitchen renovation, or basement renovation, complete home renovation, or interior design services – we’ll take care of every step of the process from first meeting to last brush stroke, to ensure a smooth project that exceeds your expectations. We’ve created our design-build process from our knowledge of industry best practices, our own experiences, and feedback from hundreds of happy clients.
As a design-build company, we take care of both the interior design and planning of the renovation, as well as the actual construction. The benefit of us taking care of every step of the process, using our own core team and trusted partners, is that there is accountability and a shared goal throughout your project's planning and construction stages from every person involved.
A home renovation project has hundreds of decisions and timelines to keep on top of. Having a company that handles every step of the process ensures that the best decisions are made, the timelines are kept, and the budget is maintained.
Set your expectations for expert workmanship and excellent customer service
Our team will meet with you to assess your needs and goals for your renovation project. On this very first meeting Tyson and our interior designer will give ideas for redesigning your space. Moving forward, if it is a kitchen renovation our kitchen planner and cabinet designer will meet with you to go over more kitchen ideas. You will then be presented with a detailed floor plan and 3D drawings of your kitchen design to approve. With this design in mind you will be presented with a quote which will reflect an accurate and achievable budget and timeline.
Moving forward, Hammerdown will obtain any necessary permits and engineering drawings required. When it comes the interior design of your new space, Hammerdown will provide as much or as little assistance as you require. Every customer is different, and it is a top priority to customize our service style to meet our customer's needs. Our in-house interior designer can help you every step of the way choosing colors, finishes, and products to make sure your new space is perfect for your taste.
We guide you through all facets; we take care of everything – to meet your satisfaction
Once your Hammerdown renovation starts, your project will be overseen by our Project Manager who will work with you daily to keep you informed of progress and help you make decisions as they arise. Much of the work will be completed by our core team and any required subcontract work will be organized by our Project Manager. We have been sourcing electrical and plumbing to the same companies, and even the same specific installers, for several years. This close relationship with our sub trades means that they are aware of Hammerdown's high level of expectations when it comes to detail and quality.
Once your project is completed, we will make sure your new space is spotless and ready for you to move in. At the end of every renovation project Tyson will do a final walkthrough with you to make sure you are left completely satisfied with your new beautiful bathroom, modern kitchen, or dream basement.
Of course, after your project is complete and you are moved in, all the work will be backed up by our quality guarantee and warranty.
We pride ourselves in honesty, integrity, transparency, and quality in everything we do – it’s built in. Want to know more about our process – see the steps we take to achieve your dream renovation below.

Design-Build Process: PHASE 2 – Home Renovation Construction
Once your Hammerdown renovation starts, your project will be overseen by our project manager. They will work with you daily to keep you informed of progress and help you make decisions as they arise.
Much of the work will be completed by our core team and any required sub-contractor work will be organized by our project manager. We have been sourcing electrical and plumbing to the same companies, and even the same specific installers, for several years. These close relationship with our sub-trades means they are aware of Hammerdown's high level of expectations when it comes to detail and quality.
The construction phase can be split into three distinct steps.
Construction contract signing
Should you design to go ahead and build with us we will ask you to sign a construction contract and provide a 25% deposit of the construction fees as outlined in the payment schedule.
During pre-construction our interior designer will confirm all quotes, devise a schedule for your project, and order all materials.
The length of this varies depending on your project. Our project manager and designer will both oversee your project during this time to ensure it’s on time, of the highest quality, and includes all of the discussed details.
Design-Build Process: PHASE 3 – Home Renovation Completion
Once your home renovation project is completed, we make sure your new space is spotless and ready for you to start living in it. At the end of every home renovation project, Tyson completes a final walkthrough with you to make sure you are left completely satisfied with your new beautiful bathroom, modern kitchen, or dream basement.
Design-Build Process: PHASE 4 – After-Completion Warranty Support
