“Hello, I’m Tim Zilles, Project Manager for Novare Renovation & Design. I understand these challenging times and Novare is adapting how we operate to make sure everyone stays safe and healthy. Our in home consultations are now being done virtually, but you may be curious what happens once construction begins. To start, I’ll prep the remodel site by hanging poly walls around the work zones to separate them from the rest of your home. Air cleaners will run to minimize dust circulating through your home, along with changing out your furnace filters weekly. We are adhering to the social distance guidelines by only having one of our trade partners in your home at a time. I personally will handle all communication and meetings with our trade partners so you won’t have any contact with them. There will also be onsite sanitation provided for them. These safety measures are how Novare has always operated, and we will continue to moving forward. We appreciate your trust in us!”

Suzanne worked closely with us to help provide thoughts and support for working our way through the many decisions we needed to make to define all of the details of appliances, colors, surfaces, lighting, etc. We could not be happier with the outcome. Tim was very easy to work with on the construction side and did a great job of managing all of the details, schedules and sub-contractors to deliver what we had envisioned generally within the timeframe planned. He was also effective in insuring every aspect was completed to our satisfaction.

We were so comfortable with them that we were able to leave on an extended vacation during the project.

We will definitely hire Novare for our future remodeling projects. We had an amazing outcome with our two bathrooms. Tim & Suzanne are trustworthy, extremely knowledgeable and listened to our “wants” and “needs”. Our projects were completed in a seamless manner, according to the schedule they provided. They really know how to use the space you have and make it as efficient as possible. We cannot believe how clean they kept our home while the remodels were going on. In the end, we got what we envisioned and the project stayed within our budget with no surprises.

Suzanne and Tim are two very talented, creative people who were easy to bring into our home. They listened, looked at the material we gathered, and designed and executed our vision. In fact, they exceeded what our vision was. They only used reliable subcontractors who did quality work. Suzanne and Tim strived for perfection and didn’t stop until it was attained.

Earl & Cheryl, St. Paul

Novare committed to updating our kitchen and improving its functionality. They also said it would be beautiful as well as congruent with the style and design of our home. They delivered on their ​promises. We are delighted with the results.

The room is a functional dream and is so beautiful.
It is a joy to walk into any moment of the day.
It is still exciting to “play” in our new kitchen.

Jerry & Sharon, St. Paul

It was a pleasure working with Novare. Tim and Suzanne were very professional. They provided solid advice and insight into what we were looking for and were easy to work with. We are very pleased with how our master bathroom renovation turned out. The project was on time and the work site was clean throughout the process. We were pleased with the sub-contractors that were used. An overall positive experience, we would certainly consider Novare on any future renovations.

Suzanne’s design ideas and Tim’s follow through with excellent subcontractors makes a potentially stressful process as easy as it can be! We did a first floor and kitchen renovation with them in 2010 and just completed 2 upstairs, simultaneous, bathroom renovations in 2018. If we have another project down the road I’d hire them again!

We had a great experience working with the Novare team (Suzanne, Tim and Meagan) on our master bath remodel.
Suzanne is so talented in the design aspect and gave us great input on options. Tim made all the work run smoothly and the subs were all talented craftsmen.  Everything was on time as promised and the results are beautiful.

When we started interviewing companies for our house remodel/addition, Novare was patient and supportive with us. We slowly got to know Suzanne and Tim and then a little later Meagan. The great thing was Suzanne realized we didn’t need an addition just needed the inside reconfigured a little. Suzanne had great ideas for how to make that happen. Somedays it felt like Tim and Brian were apart of the house with how much we saw them. They made it so easy to work with them we would recommend them to anyone who asks. Meagan was great at making sure all of our decorative things came and were in good shape from all over.

It was truly an amazing experience working with Tim and Suzanne. During a long-distance total remodel of our vacation home in Stillwater, they kept to their word; stayed on track; and were in constant communication with me on progress, challenges and choices to make. Somehow, they came up with extra space that wasn’t there before!! The kitchen is now bigger and much more functional. The masterbath was totally redesigned – adding a large walk-in shower and adjoining walk-in closet. They listened to our design ideas and incorporated them into the project beautifully. Throughout the entire 9+ month project, Tim gave us regular updates, stayed on track and on budget. The results are impeccable workmanship, top-notch materials and warm colors and material selections. Throughout the entire project, they remained calm, professional and so easy to work with. I couldn’t imaging working with anyone else on such a large project.

Bruce, Stillwater

We just completed a large project with Suzanne and Tim. We gutted the kitchen, created new space for a laundry room and repurposed a sunroom. The planning was carefully done as was the construction. We deeply appreciated the reliability of Novare. We always knew when they would be here and what would be completed that day/ week and month. No surprises over the several months of work. We could not be happier with the finished improvement and would highly recommend Novare to anyone considering home improvement.
