Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to Move Out During the Remodel ?

Depending on the scope of work for the remodel you most likely will be able to remain in your home. We strive to be as unobstructive as possible when it comes to remodeling so when it comes to the job site we want it to be a comfortable environment for you to be around. With the use of our dust control and cleaning products the spaces in your home that are not being remodeled should remain habitable for you. 

Where will you store all the materials? Will the jobsite be very dirty?

We store all materials in our warehouse unitl the are needed on site. We also provide a trailer on site for storage of any materials that will be installed within the next few days.  

We use the HEPA fitlers, air movers and dust barriers around the work area to separate and keep the jobsite clean and liveable. Our goal is to make staying in your home during a remodel as easy of a process as possible. 

Will my project increase the value of my home?

In short the answer is yes, but there are a lot of factors to consider and we don't think ROI should not be the primary reason for remodeling your home. Most studies show that roughly 70-75% of the money put into remodeling your home will come back as added value.

But remodeling is about more than ROI. It about making your life easier and more enjoyable. It's about makeing family and guest more comfortable in your home. For us those are the more important reasons to remodel. 

Are You Expensive?

I would say you don't hire us for the lowest price, you hire us for the best experience.

Our Good Better Best proposal will outline all the costs associated with your project, including our project management and design fees, so you can make an informed decision.

How Long Have You Been In Business?

The owner, Paul McManus, has been working on homes in Tallahassee for more than 25 years. He started out as a painting contractor and then a handyman. In 2006 he got his contractor license and began doing more extensive remodeling and construction.

In 2015 he opened the McManus Kitchen and Bath Showroom and started specializing in  kitchen and bathroom remodeling.

About the Owner, Paul McManus

Paul McManus Owner of McManus Kitchen & Bath in Tallahassee FL Kitchen Cabinets TallahasseeI fell in love with remodeling in college. I was studying architecture at the University of Florida when I took a job as a house painter on the weekends to help pay for school. I realized I loved the hands-on work as much as I enjoyed the design and that put me on a path to become a remodeling contractor. 

I wound up running my own painting company while in school and after school that evolved into a handyman service and would eventually become a remodeling contractor.

I attended various trade schools all over the country to gain experience and in 2006 got my residential contractors license.

In 2015 I opened our kitchen and bath showroom and started specializing in kitchens and bathrooms with our current design+build approach.

The showroom and adjacent warehouse has been a game-changer for us. It allows us to display unique products that were previously unavailable in Tallahassee and it has increased our ability to serve our customers significantly. 

On a personal note, I love to travel and have visited more than 38 countries, many of them during my time in the US Peace Corps in Zambia and also during a 4-year stint as an international bike tour guide.
