Each of Gettum’s remodeling projects is designed to blend seamlessly with the original structure, avoiding that “added on look”. They work individually with each customer to create a project that fits their budget, preferences and lifestyle. All styles and designs are available by working through Gettum’s in-house design group. By doing the design work “in-house” the client avoids the pitfalls of trying to coordinate a designer’s ideas, their budget restraints and a contractor’s needs with that of their own. Gettum’s team approach brings all the responsibility back to one organized point for full accountability and control. Each project has an onsite Lead Carpenter, a highly qualified individual responsible for project scheduling, project quality, subcontractors, suppliers and field personnel. The technical “know-how” of the Company Team makes Gettum Associates Inc. and you a winning combination.
