Vail Builders, Inc Frequently Asked Questions


I already have a lot - can you build on it for me?
Yes!  We are happy to build on your lot. If you do not already have a lot we do have lots available for you to look at.

How much does a Remodel typically cost?
These amounts vary according to the type of project (example: Building vs. Remodeling; Whole House Remodel vs. One Level/Addition, etc.) and the types of products that you choose to add to your home. We offer a free consultation to help you get started.

How long does a typical Remodel or New Home construction take to complete?
The time line is a varying factor. Again, the type of project that you choose plays a large role in determining a completion date. Upon consultation we can give you an estimated completion date. We take pride in meeting the deadlines that we quote.

Can I use my friends or family that is in the construction trade to help with the project?
Typically I do not. The process seems to flow much smoother when less people are involved in the project. We handle your needs from start to finish. We will, however, discuss any exceptions that may be appropriate.

How do I get to your office?
We are located at 6829 Beaver Pond Way Centerville, Minnesota 55038.

TOTAL KITCHEN REMODEL
After working with another remodeler to build a new kitchen for a couple of months and becoming increasingly concerned about the lack of professionalism, I contacted Vail Builders after seeing them highly recommended on Angie’s List. Jim Vail promptly returned my phone call and set up an appointment to measure the room and to meet with my wife and I regarding our ideas. In just a couple of weeks, Jim had created a set of preliminary plans and the most comprehensive contract I’ve ever seen. Jim is thorough and extremely detail oriented, which is exactly what you need in a general contractor. Jim has high expectations of his subcontractors and is responsive and fair to his clients. I will plan to hire Vail Builders for any and all of my future building needs.

GENERAL REMODELING
Am nothing but very please and impressed with Jim's customer service and 
communication. He helped us with the details ( who knew there were so many 
details!), and made recommendations along the way when a part of the plan came into question.

It went fabulously! Jim Vail was easy to get a hold of and very punctual. Very 
polite and respectful. Came out to my house and measured the space. Also made 
recommendations to change the thin set mortar and the grout to a product that would last longer than the product I had originally bought. I'm glad I listened to Jim. The finished product looks beautiful. Got a very detailed bid for the work that same day. Was able to get me scheduled within one week of me accepting his bid. They covered my wood floor, granite counter tops and appliances with protective mats and plastic. Used a sticky mat at the garage door to prevent dirt and dust from being tracked in. The tile installer Rick Johnson was fantastic. Very laid back and polite. Showed up both days exactly at 8 AM like they said they would. When the work was finished, everything was cleaned up. No mess left behind. I would hire this company again in a heartbeat.

KITCHEN & REMODELING, DECKS AND PORCHES
We wanted to create a unique deck. We went back to Jim Vail who had done such an awesome job with our kitchen renovation several years ago. The deck is 
beautiful (not something I say very often about decks), maintenance free, and is exactly what we wanted. Jim knew what we wanted, even though we hadn't figured out how to describe what we were after. The quality of Jim's work is outstanding and his crew are great. He is a real pleasure to work with. Indeed, we've now asked him to remodel our master bathroom - our third project with Jim Vail.
