Why Choose Us?
Because everything is under one roof. Because we are often better and may actually cost less.
“Cost Less”: Do we mean that? Yes, our focus on efficiency streamlines construction and cuts costs by moving in, as close as possible to, a straight line forward. It is a dynamic industry, but our thorough planning ensures that we have the best chance of reaching our timeframe goals and less time re-working or adjusting because of errors, miscommunication, or changing things that weren’t thought of before.
Our materials cost less.* We have formed great relationships with our suppliers who understand what we need from a cost perspective. In addition, we wholesale materials wherever possible. Granite, Tile, Hardscaping Materials, and many other items are there to choose from when the budget becomes the focus.
It is also important to mention that we have cut Retail pricing for services out of the picture wherever possible such as in doing our own Shower Glass.
It is also because, on more intense projects such as a kitchen or addition, we can move seamlessly from step to step.
We also have more accountability, because we are looking to build a relationship rather than just getting into your home and getting one job done. For example, you may hire us to replace your sidewalks only once in your life, but we would like you to consider THAG for future projects as well. Not ever with the intention of… “we will never see you again, where’s the check, and where’s the next job?”. That is the complete opposite of our style and business model. We truly appreciate our long-term relationships that we have developed and maintain over the years.
Every project includes a thorough plan developed through our proprietary process.
If you are considering a painting project, an Interior Designer will show up to take measurements instead of a builder. They can both measure, but our Designer is the only one who has 35 years of experience in picking perfect colors out professionally.
On any project, you are going to get unbiased advice because of our versatility. We will not tell you a floor can not be restored because we want to sell you new flooring. We will not restrict the size of your kitchen for fear of structural work.
Larger projects are handled with such greater ease that you will find time to incorporate designs and ideas that are more specific to your tastes and liking.
What is Our “Style” / What Does Our Logo Mean?
Many design firms are known for their trademark “style”. THAG is first and foremost a builder, so how does this translate?
To answer that question, we often refer to our Logo. The logo is off the top part of a Greek Column. But not just any column. It is a female figure, so it would be called a “Caryatid”.
The most famous use of this design is the Porch of the Maidens on the west wall of the Parthenon depicted here. We are pretty sure no one has ever looked at that and thought it looked weird. There is a reason for that…the Greeks knew the rules.
One of the rules was things need a beginning, a middle, and an end. Click here for examples — casework, roof lines, break down molding.
However, it did not matter what was placed in this position. You could stick a female form, a male form, an animal, or whatever you wanted!
That is THAG role. We know the rules. We help you pick things you love and then put them together in the order we know to be one that works. We will guide those decisions, but not tell you directly what to choose unless asked.
Our input tends to be classical. By very definition, these are characteristics that will stand the test of time, add resale value, and end up being choices you love forever.
As our portfolio shows, we are comfortable with Modern, Contemporary, Danish, Classical, Americana, and whatever makes our clients feel truly at Home.
