their homes, while simultaneously capitalizing on their assets to meet changing tastes, technology or lifestyles. Services include remodeling, construction, kitchen and bath design and interior design. To assist in optimal design efficiency, certified Aging– in–Place specialists allow Devon to accommodate the requirements of a young, active family just as they would accommodate families with special environmental needs. Another differentiating factor that sets Devon apart from local competitors is that their designers are formally educated at universities with accredited interior design programs. They offer services that range from hourly, task– specific consultations to complete programming, space planning, furniture and fixture acquisition, and paint and fabric selection. Devon’s designers, craftsmen and managers look for the potential in each home, from the smallest detail to the grandest design gesture, and are able to guide the homeowner towards implementation and completion of the vision. So far, their portfolio includes whole house renovation, kitchen and bath remodels, basement and attic conversions, home theaters, garages, pool houses, decks, greenhouses, insurance restorations, and accessibility modifications. Clients know to expect outstanding communication when working with Devon. Regardless of whether plans are derived from an outside architect or an in–house design, or if the project is construction or design–oriented, Devon considers communication to be the paramount aspect of successful project management. This includes listening, interpreting, anticipating, coordinating, budgeting, scheduling, and ultimately satisfying the customer with a quality product. “The pursuit of quality is what motivates us. In an industry consumed by a lowest bidder mentality, we understand that taking shortcuts puts the results you are striving for at risk,” says the company’s website, www.devonremodeling.com. This pursuit is paying off for Devon through repeat customers and referrals says President Bill Stanfield. “They hire us – and keep coming back – because they know that their investment is in good hands.  We value this trust highly, and repay it with integrity, 6 Construction Leaders Today

dependability and accountability.” Each client is assigned a project manager who remains engaged in every step of the renovation, from demolition to punch list.  In addition to overseeing task completion and scheduling, the manager schedules all the necessary trades including, but not limited to, drywall, carpentry, HVAC, plumbing, electrical, flooring and roofing.

With the believe that the details of a project determine its outcome, Devon’s staff diligently marries design with intelligent planning to prepare realistic cost estimates and punctual scheduling, to procure quality materials and workmanship, and to protect the renovation site’s existing furnishings.  To ensure that the fruits of the labor shine through at the end of a

project, a professional cleaning crew is dispatched as the final step in Devon’s mission to transform a house into a home that accommodates each family’s lifestyle. Because of the physical impact of renovations on a homeowner’s life, Devon Remodeling and Construction ensures that comfort and functionality are maintained as much as possible throughout the renovation.
