Called up for an estimate but seems they don’t work on small contracts. The person who answered the call politely replied back they don’t take up projects of medium magnitude that doesn’t involve designing & build. Can only assess them on behalf of medium projects for the time being.

Working with WCDB to remodel my kitchen was a really great experience. They are the nicest group of people I have ever worked with. From the initial consultation with Chris to interacting with Jim on the computer design and cabinet selection, to having Anna help with material selections. Their knowledge and input was extremely helpful and morphed a few pictures and ideas I had into a great design ...

WCDB was a pleasure to work with on the remodel and addition on our 1920's Dutch Colonial home. When we purchased the home as an abandoned foreclosure we were overwhelmed by all the work that needed to be done. Chris was able to take our vision for the home and turn it into a reality. Their employees were knowledgeable and always willing to answer any questions or concerns that we had. Chris rolle...

Excellent. I can’t say enough good things about our experience working with West Chester Design & Build. We were 110% satisfied. From the start to the finish they were fantastic. For the design work, they presented us with multiple options, and gave real thought to solutions. The process was smooth, and they showed us everything in a 3D computer simulation. Just as good or better was the construct...

We hired West Chester Design and Build (WCDB) to renovate our kitchen, powder room and living room. Because we wanted to change the layout of the kitchen altogether, we were sure to interview WCDB and two other contractors. Ironically, WCDB initially presented designs that only one of us liked. WCDB patiently helped us to re-evaluate what we really wanted for our home. WCDB patiently listened, ask...

WCDB did a fantasic job in renovating the interior of our home that was built in the '50's.  It took about 6-7 months from start to finish with the majority of the time in the winter months.  I met with Chris Payson and he suggested some great ideas about the renovation, he advised about the dormer addition and we decided to go for it as it will expand the master bedroom and add additional square ...

Reimagine Your Home - with our 3 Stage Remodeling Experience We want to emphasize the importance of this moment in our customers’ lives—and our duty to them as we guide them through their transformation. We put in the extra effort, so every customer’s experience is more convenient. We do everything possible to anticipate needs, eliminate barriers, and bring customers into the process—and into the joy of reimagining their space. Stage 1: Space Planning Once we understand your goals and budget, our architectural designers develop a series of three potential layouts for your upgraded space. These layouts represent three different price points within your budget, showing you a range of what’s possible in your space. Stage 2: Design Selections From floors and cabinets to light fixtures and paint, we help you choose the details that complement your vision. As you walk through your virtual space, you can start to see how your decisions become reality and make any changes before we start construction. Stage 3: Construction We’ll notify the neighbors, pull the permits, and schedule every detail so you’ll never worry or wonder what’s next. We’re prompt, we’re precise, and we’re always here to answer your questions and anticipate your family’s needs as you watch your new space take shape.

Services Not Offered

We do not take on small stand-alone projects such as replacing windows or interior painting unless it is part of a much larger project.
