The Winthorpe Approach


We Get to Know You and Your Lifestyle

The more we know about you and what you want, the better we are able to serve your needs. “There’s really nothing more important,” says Scott Szeliga. “It takes time to get to understand a homeowner. A give and take of ideas combined with experience and creativity ultimately gets us to the best finished project.”

With any remodeling project, we need to consider your family needs, dreams, vision, lifestyles, and expected results. We also need to discuss and clearly understand your budgetary parameters so we can help create a manageable and valued project. Our goal is to bring all of this information together and help create a final project that you will enjoy for years to come.


We Work With you Through the Design

We believe every project needs to look like it “belongs” in terms of style, shape, and flow, which is where our years of experience come into play. Whether your project is a need for more space, changing to a more functional room or home layout, to simply updating rooms or space in your home, we take the time to create a custom design that satisfies your needs. Whether we can satisfy your design requirements with our “in house” design team, work with local architects that we have built partnerships with, or work with your architect if you have already started the design process, you can count on Winthorpe for a well thought out and professionally designed project.


Construction Begins

We realize we are working in your home and we want you to feel comfortable working with us. Winthorpe Design & Build is fully licensed and insured company, and we require everyone on the Winthorpe team from our project manager to each of our trades to focus on building quality and value as if they were working on their own home. Our project manager is always available to discuss, track, and review any questions you may have during the project. If by some chance we do come across an issue with an existing condition or potential problem that may affect the project outcome, we want to bring the issue to your attention, layout the options, and help you determine the best solution. During the construction, we are also here to help work through the selection process of the project to help maintain a smooth and complete schedule.


After the work is done, Winthorpe is not done

We realize that you have made an investment in your home and you have trusted Winthorpe Design & Build to complete that project. When your project is complete, you can trust that we will stand behind our work with our two year warranty along with the understanding that we will help our clients in any way we can to make sure they enjoy their home for years to come.

Our clients’ satisfaction, repeat business, and referrals are the best form of advertising we can receive and help make our work deeply satisfying.
