Can we add a fireplace to our basement if we don’t already have one?

Advances in fireplaces over the last twenty years has made adding one without any existing chimney a lot easier to do. After evaluating the existing conditions we map out the options and discuss all the safety concerns you may have. No natural gas? Maybe using an ethanol feature would be best for your personal situation. Our team is experienced in walking you through the options and finding the best solution for your home.

Do you offer financing options?

Yes, We can provide you with several financing options and their information. Home improvement loans, home equity lines, refinancing, and construction financing programs are all available. We are not the provider and your information will be kept confidential between you and we will not have access to it. Cynthia is an experienced real estate professional and is happy to offer any general guidance on what options might be best during your consultation or you can discuss privately with the lenders. We do not self-finance projects other than providing a draw schedule triggered by completion of work as recommended by the Virginia State Contractors Board.

What happens to our old materials like cabinets and counter tops?

Depending on the condition of your existing fixtures we offer several options;
Donate, repurpose or sell. If choosing one of these options then we will provide you with information to help with the coordination. If the cabinets were built in place and cannot be removed and salvaged then they will be disposed of via local guidelines.
