Homework Remodels


What Our Homeowners Say About Us


April Osborn

“We have undertaken three separate projects in the past 8 years and for each, we selected Steve Shinn and Homework Remodels. We live in a 1929 home and have restored/remodeled (1) several rooms and a full bathroom renovation following a flood, (2) completed a beautiful kitchen remodel, and (3) just finished a master bedroom/bathroom makeover – all turned out to be beautiful, functional, and in keeping with the Spanish Colonial style of our home. Steve and his crew have been responsive, pleasant, and timely with each of these projects. From floods to termites and leaking roofs, we have been very satisfied with the quality of the work and the considerate and honest approach that Steve and his crew have provided.”

Steve Shinn provided a complete remodeling of our kitchen, patio, pool, and backyard, including all landscaping. The work was done in two stages, first the kitchen and then the rest. All of the work done through Homework Remodels was excellent. We and Steve can be proud of it.

The team at Homework Remodels are consummate professionals. From the beginning of the process, Steve and his teams quality of work and attention to detail were superb. The design team worked with me to ensure every idea was developed fully, and the follow through and workmanship was fantastic. We even called a couple of audibles along the way, which were implemented seamlessly. I would hire Homework Remodels again without hesitation!

We had our master bathroom torn down to the studs and totally remodeled by Homework Remodels. We met initially with the owner of the company Steve Shinn and his designer Sheila Lanier. We were so impressed by their presentation that we did not bother to obtain any additional quotes.

Sheila, in addition to being quite personable, is an extremely talented designer and decorator with a great eye for color and composition. We accompanied her on many trips to select tiles, granite, bathroom fixtures, lighting, etc.

The subcontractors used by Homework Remodels were all excellent in their craft. The job foremen, Aaron and Lee oversaw our project with the utmost care. During part of the renovation, we had to be out of town but we were comfortable entrusting our home to these men during our absence.

During renovations, we also decided to have the company do a partial revision of our main guest bathroom. Although our initial budget grew with that revision, we believe the final product was well worth the cost.

We can highly recommend Homework Remodels to anyone seeking quality renovations of their home.

We recently completed a full tear-out kitchen and master bath replacement with Homework Remodels in our home. It was the second major project on which we engaged Steve Shinn and company. The first was about ten years ago for an addition to our home that added an office/bedroom, laundry room, garage extension, new roof, painting, and changes to the front and rear patios.

Doing such an extensive project that involved all trades gave us the opportunity to really get to know Steve, the quality of work from his team, and the way he runs his business. Needless to say, we were very satisfied and had no hesitation calling Homework Remodels for this latest project.

We were very pleased to see that Steve was not only still in business following the recession that clobbered so many local companies but actually had grown his business over that time. Knowing that Steve takes a long-term approach to manage his business, and having seen his dedication to customer satisfaction, we were not surprised to see that Homework Remodels flourished. We had uncertainties about other contracting firms, so we went with the one we knew and with whom we already had a good experience. We had confidence in Homework Remodels, so it was a pretty easy decision.

One of the changes we found, that was of great value to us, is that Steve now had an in-house designer, Sheila, whose experience and expertise was obvious from our first meeting. It made tackling such a large project a much more comfortable experience. Sheila provided a lot of information on materials, fixtures, and design, and told us where to find more on our own.

The Homework team provided guidance every step of the way and did a great job. I would recommend them for their quality of work and great customer service.

Homework Remodels transformed our dated, 26- year- old home in Gainey Ranch in Scottsdale, AZ into an award-winning showplace and the home of our dreams. A local Realtor who saw an article on our home in the summer 2016 edition of SuCasa Magazine even described it as the most beautiful remodel in Gainey Ranch. They exceeded all our expectations and their attention to detail was second to none. They were totally reliable and communicated clearly. We would absolutely use them again – they’ve spoiled us for anyone else!

I had Homework Remodels update the kitchen and laundry in my Haver home and I couldn’t be happier with how things turned out. It can be a really stressful time to have your kitchen torn up for weeks but all the people I interacted with during the remodel were great and provided excellent quality work. I just love my kitchen every day (still pinching myself after 2 years). I get nothing but compliments from everyone that comes over. I recommend Steve and his folks at Homework Remodels.

Steve and Sheila are professional, creative, genuine, friendly, and just awesome. We were so bummed out when we got screwed over by a different company over the remodeling of our master bathroom. This happened only a week before we were leaving for Europe – to stay for several months. Steve and Sheila came to the rescue and together we worked out the perfect solutions.  They remodeled the bathroom while we were gone. They developed a webpage where we could track progress and view pictures.  When we returned, we were overwhelmed by the new bathroom. It was just as we wanted it and more! Later, we planned on making our backyard more child-friendly, Steve and Sheila again camp up with great designs. When we left for Europe again, they got to work!

The result was perfect. Homework Remodels are very thorough, very trustworthy, and everything is done by the book. If something isn’t like you want it to be, they fix it. This adds a strong sense of security and trust. We will ask them again the next time we are remodeling!

We highly recommend Homework Remodels! Steve and Sheila spent time providing us with quality blueprints and excellent home décor/interior design selections for our new 400 square foot casita. We live in a historic neighborhood and they have proven experience obtaining the required city permits and approval from the Phoenix Historical Preservation Society. They removed our dilapidated garage and replaced it with an amazingly beautiful and quality-built casita! We would like Ross, our Homework Remodels’ project manager, to oversee all of our projects! He kept the project moving smoothly and made sure the work was completed to high, quality standards. After examining the completed casita, contractors we know gave the work their high praise!

Steve and the Homework Remodels Team did a great job on my considerable room addition project. The goal was to expand an existing, view-facing deck on the back of my home… while also adding a whole new room to the downstairs part of the home by utilizing the newly created space underneath the deck expansion. I had prepared my ‘back of the napkin’ drawings in some detail and Steve, Sheila and team were able to stick closely to my design concepts throughout the project, while professionally upgrading the drawings for all of the necessary planning and approval steps that were required along the way. Steve also accompanied me to the City Planning Hearing in order to get city approval to expand beyond the allowable ‘footprint’ of my home for the project to move forward… and it all came off without a hitch. Nine months later and we are enjoying the views of Lookout Mountain from our outdoor kitchen atop our newly expanded (and now partially covered & misted) deck. The “new” side matches the pre-existing side perfectly, and the deck flooring upgrade has been absolutely fantastic. We’ve added several hundred square feet of VERY usable outdoor space just off our kitchen and living areas, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. The downstairs room addition is equally as fantastic, and even the few issues that needed follow-up were handled as courteously as one might hope for.  Steve & Company are total pros, and good people as well. Highly recommended.

Very happy to highly recommend Steve, Sheila, and the Homework team.  We had a bathroom remodel done amidst the beginnings of the COVID lockdown.  Even with that distraction, everyone was professional, careful, and respectful of the situation.  All the trades did beautiful work and our project manager Ross couldn’t have been more helpful and professional.  The project was done on time and on budget.  Steve and Sheila carefully walk you through the timeline to minimize any “surprises”.  I just contacted Steve last week for another project, and they came out the same day to assess the project and start the ball rolling. – Paradise Valley, Arizona
