About RemodelAssist and Don Roberts

My name is Don Roberts, and I've been where you are now. I'm a veteran home remodeling homeowner who helps other homeowners streamline their home remodeling projects.

When I started my full home renovation, I thought I had everything all figured out ahead of time.

It turns out that I was only partially prepared. In fact, I ended up with 18 expensive change orders along the way, as well as several unpleasant surprises. I'm here to tell you that was painful.

And, there were frustrating complications along the way. 

While I was experiencing all of this, I decided I wanted to tell other homeowners (just like you) what to watch out for. That idea spark was in 2004, and it's when RemodelAssist began.
