Gonyea Remodeling Plans For Your Future


When you work with the Gonyea remodeling team you will create a home that is a reflection of the life you lead with your family. They’ll consider how your home works with your current lifestyle, but will also plan for your family’s future. The design you choose will meet your goals and it won’t be aspirational or impractical.

The Gonyea design team puts themselves in your shoes, so when the time comes they can give you creative options that will enable you to get the most out of your project.

Gonyea Remodeling Design Process


What will your home look like? It’s fun to dream big and imagine the possibilities. With the help of Gonyea remodelers, we can make your home work better for you in the location you love.

During the design phase we determine what needs to change in your home: flow, form, function or storage. Our focus is to listen to your needs and formulate a creative plan and path towards the best solution. We also examine past repairs, defects, water issues and former remodeling projects so that as we design, we incorporate proposed solutions to past issues.

Gonyea Remodeling Investment


The financial investment you’re prepared to make in your project will drive a lot of your decisions. We help you make sure your expectations of the project are in line with your investment. 

Many clients weigh the project costs vs. the expected return on the future sales of their home. This is a wise approach. Getting the most out of your investment includes choosing high-quality materials, design and construction that will stand the test of time.

However, if you want to build a Tuscan-inspired wine room, a hidden door bookshelf or a room to display your sneaker collection, we’ve got your back.

Gonyea Remodeling Process Feasibility


Knowing what aspects take priority over others in important during a home remodel. Sometimes certain changes need to be implemented before we start renovating. We want to identify any structural concerns as soon as possible.

The Gonyea team takes every part of your home into consideration. Before we start work, we set clear expectations with you so that you understand any feasibility concerns and how they may impact your time and investment. Rest assured knowing your master plan will account for your current and future needs and allow for a seamless, holistic approach to your investment.
