Fall in love with your home again with award-winning designs by Astoria Custom Renovations.
As glamorous as it initially seems, renovating your home can quickly turn from exciting to exhausting. With so many things to consider it can become an overwhelming experience, says Astoria Custom Renovations President and CEO Jim Stinson.Stinson's advice is to avoid the stress altogether by hiring an experienced company whose guidance you can trust, and when it comes to choosing who you want to work with he emphasizes thoroughly researching your options. Look into company legacy, request a full detailed quote, check references and view past work, he suggests.Click to see more images from Astoria Custom Renovations
Stinson, who runs Astoria Custom Renovations and Astoria Custom Homes with wife and business partner Lisa, knows that a reputed company is able to bring out the best of your pre-existing home. Our goal is to enhance the function and feel of a living space by thoughtfully planning and designing the appropriate updates, he explains. The award-winning team at Astoria works directly with customers to seamlessly integrate old and new into a refreshed aesthetic that reflects the original character of the home.There are many reasons people outgrow their homes, says Stinson. Perhaps the location is still great but it no longer fulfills your specific needs. Moving doesnt always make the most sense. A consultation with Astoria, on the other hand, does. The business, established in 2004, is in good standing with the CHBA, RenoMark and Alberta Renovation Warranty, giving you total peace of mind throughout your renovation. Overall satisfaction is their main goal and their loyal clientele vouch that Astoria renovations are both timely and on budget. We ultimately want to help you fall in love with your home again.
