Our partnership model means

we only win if you do.

By being transparent, measuring our performance and continuously improving our processes, we’re able to quantify and absorb common renovation pain points for our customers (e.g. defects, overruns, delays) and in doing so provide you with a financially risk-free renovation experience. 

This is why homeowners trust Bolster over traditional design build firms and general contractors, because we only win when you win. It’s a true financial partnership model that our homeowners love.
