Frontier Custom Builders Remodeler

Nate Jurmu

How did you get started in remodeling? 

We started with homebuilding. As clients shared their Frontier experiences, their friends and family members contacted us to remodel their homes. We soon realized we also had a knack for remodeling and enjoyed the challenge of adapting older homes to better serve today’s families. Now we balance both. 

What are some of your favorite trends and styles in remodeling? 

The best spaces are versatile. Our talented designers constantly introduce us to the best new products and materials. We design spaces that can adapt as families’ needs evolve, consider accessibility features that will enable the clients to enjoy their homes forever, and create environments where family and friends can gather away from the rigors of daily life.

What sets your company apart? 

Frontier is a family business. We take each project and every relationship personally and understand the wants and needs
of our clients. Clients appreciate that we say what we mean and do what we say. 

What inspires and influences your work?

Our clients are our greatest inspiration. Without understanding our clients’ tastes and needs, it would be difficult to build or remodel a home.

How would you describe your team’s approach to a new project?

Communication is key – it is important to us that we are able to communicate well with our clients. We have the experience and skills to design and build most anything, but we choose to work with people who share our preference for straight talk, mutual respect, and collaboration. We start every project with the end in mind and do whatever it takes to meet the deadline and budget and create another happy client for life.

How do you bring a client’s vision to life?

We take the time to learn their goals. Through the design process, they communicate their needs and wishes which are borne out through the architectural drawings and the selection process. Collaborating with the whole team is integral to bringing their vision to life.

What are the most important elements of a successful remodeling team?

We consider the clients as full-fledged members of the team and ensure that all members of the team are on the same page from the start. We enlist trusted trade partners who know how to work for us and with each other to get the job done. When the team meets a roadblock, we put our heads together and solve the problem.

What do you enjoy most about remodeling homes?

We know when we build or improve a home it will tangibly improve that family’s quality of life day after day. They will have the space, features, and atmosphere they need to be happy, proud, comfortable, and safe.
