Reinventing the Renovation

Renovating your home is really, really hard… and even more expensive. There’s a running joke in the industry: the schedule is always twice as long, and the price is twice as high. We think this is not a funny joke, so we set out to create the perfect renovation experience.

At Acoutera we have re-invented the renovation to be on-time, and on-budget, nearly every time. We do this with a simple formula: 1. You design and build your renovation online. 2. We match you to the top contractors. 3. We provide you with software to track your renovation.

Less Change-Orders Means Less Cost

By determining the price of each renovation before the project starts, we reduce chances for new price-changes. We provide a detailed cost-breakdown for each material and labor item when you design your renovation online. The difference can be seen in our final prices:
  • A traditional bathroom remodel on the West Coast costs CAD$28,000 (Cost vs. Value 2017), at Acoutera this costs on average, CAD$17,000.
  • A midrange Vancouver kitchen remodel will run CAD$92,000, while our average ticket price is CAD$44,000.
  • What about basements? Homeowners save CAD$29,000 on average when renovating their basements with us, versus the standard CAD$84,000.

How it Works

Streamlined Design

We save homeowners stress and time by curating a selection of full bathroom designs that include all of the details. Simply choose your favourite design, or design your bathroom online, if you don’t find the one you like.

Each pre-packaged design includes a price range, a timeline, the best contractors for the job, and all of the fixtures and finishes.

 

Customization

At Acoutera we believe that you should be in control of your own renovation.

You have the ability to modify the details of each design, or build your own from scratch. Choose your favourite floor tile, wall tile (or paint), vanity, and even fixture. We have created photo-realistic renders for any combination of materials that you desire.

Walk yourself through a virtual renovation, before getting a real one

Dedicated Project Manager

A dedicated Acoutera-vetted project manager handles the entire renovation from start to finish, managing the scheduling, communication with contractors, and materials delivery.

We let you track the status of your renovation through our built-in online dashboard. Acoutera sends you daily project updates at the end of each day, with expected arrival and departure times for the next day.

Rate Each Contractor

After the project is complete, each on-site sub-contractor can be rated. This helps future homeowners make decisions about who to hire, and who to avoid.
