Reinventing the Renovation

Renovating the 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 at Acoutera, don’t think this joke is very funny.

We have reinvented the entire renovation process by simplifying design, connecting people to the most relevant tradespeople, and deploying a Project Manager to each job-site.

Most notably, our cost is 25% less (at least) than the average Vancouver renovation.

Acoutera is 25% cheaper than the competition

Acoutera has made renovations simple, and not just for the wealthy. Our goal is to provide a world-class experience for all homeowners. This is why we take a small margin versus the industry standard.
  • A traditional bathroom remodel on the west coast costs $21,000 (Cost vs. Value 2017), at Acoutera this costs $15,000.
  • A midrange Vancouver kitchen remodel will run $69,000, while our average ticket price is only $44,000.
  • What about basements? Homeowners save $22,000 on average when renovating their basements with us, versus the standard $84,000.

How it Works

Streamlined Design

We save homeowners stress and time by curating a selection of finished designs that include all of the details. Simply choose from a design that you like, and we can get started right away.

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

We offer preset design-packages, so people can choose their favourite design, right away

Start with Light Contemporary.

Customization

You also have the ability to modify the details of each design. If you would rather have a different plumber, or maybe some different tiles, just let us know.

Dedicated Project Manager

Now the renovation starts, and the homeowner can relax. A dedicated Acoutera Project Manager handles the entire renovation from start to finish, managing the scheduling, communication with contractors, and materials delivery.

As the project progresses, we provide updates via our Project Dashboard. Here you can view the status of your project and which contractor is scheduled to come next.

Homeowners can view the status of their renovation from their online dashboard (in development).

Rate Each Contractor

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