-3D Rendering- We encourage 3D rendering for smaller jobs not requiring a professional designer or for key design areas in larger remodels such as kitchens or baths. For example, when just refinishing a bath and new vanity tile, sinks, or showers we can do a quick 3D rendering to let you see what it will look like at a low cost. No additional plans are needed from an architect or designer. This is an exceptional value that lets you see your material choices before construction and can help prevent costly charges during the construction process.
