What Our Clients Think

"We had a wonderfully positive experience with Fox Home Innovations from the first home visit until the completion of our whole home remodel. The design process was so helpful- more than we could have done ourselves. Communication was excellent! We got daily logs updating us on the progress each day. Our questions and concerns were immediately answered."

What Our Clients Think

"We turned our screened-in porch into an all-season room. It is beautiful. Everything about it from the windows, flooring, and basic construction was done exactly to what I was envisioning. They also repaired a wall in the dining room, built a new mantel for the fireplace, and put in new countertops and tile. All the work is perfect with high-quality materials and I was very impressed with all the guys who were here throughout the project."
