Don’t Relocate; Renovate

Make your home and budget work for you

While Magnolia Home Remodeling Group in Union can handle the most luxurious remodel with every conceivable option, the company also values projects with modest budgets.

“We are not focused on the dollar amount of a project,” says Vic Fiore, who owns the company along with his brother-in-law, Chris Fontana. “We look at each project as an opportunity to build relationships so clients will consider us again. Whether hiring us for a small service or large project, living in a high value home or a moderate residence, it doesn't matter. We want people to understand our process and get to know us. Performing at a high level with constant communication is how Magnolia grows its business.”

If you’re looking to remodel a kitchen, for example, you don't have to spend a certain dollar amount to get a great space. “We can sit down together and understand your goals and then figure out what budget you might need in order to achieve that. We'll do whatever we can to make the project happen and not sacrifice any quality or details. We put a great amount of effort into these projects to meet or exceed expectations.”

Vic doesn’t want homeowners extending their budget to get what they want. “We'd rather they stay within or below their budget so that they have a better comfort level and they feel good about the project the whole way through,” he says.

Another way the company makes remodeling one’s home even more attainable is by making financing easier. “You apply through Magnolia and you get an instant decision, and can take on an affordable monthly payment plan. Most payment plans begin after the work is done, and since there are no prepayment penalties, you can pay it off whenever you want.”

With today’s higher interest rates, many people who need more room in their homes or need a better functioning home don’t want to move. Instead, they prefer to renovate their house to get the space they need without relocating and taking on a higher interest rate. This installment plan allows them to do just that.

Whether homeowners want a minor refresh or to have a room totally gutted and remodeled, the Magnolia team is with them every step of the way. Regardless of price point, its professional installers are able to install products and finishes at a high level.

“We have installers that we've been using for many years who are tested and proven,” says Vic. “We all care deeply about the finished product.”

Magnolia offers a great variety of home improvement services including roofing, siding, windows, kitchens, bathrooms, basements, and additions. It also does hardscape, outdoor living, porches, patios and more.

“We're in a very competitive industry and there are always new products coming along with new techniques and processes,” he says. “We work hard to stay up on these different options.”

With Magnolia being family owned and operated, Vic and Chris have a vested interest in making sure they build solid relationships, retain customers, keep their reputation strong and continue to grow their business. To see how they can improve your living space, go to
