Do you offer free estimates?

Progressive Design Build is happy to provide a complimentary design consultation, the method of which will help us determine if we are a right fit for your project. In this appointment, we will discuss your preferences, the scope of your project, and what you want to achieve. We will also likely ask about the amount you would like to invest in your remodel. In this initial meeting, we will also help you with investment ranges to give you a general idea of costs. 

If at this time you are interested in moving forward with a more in-depth, proactive assessment, you will sign a Discovery agreement, which comes with a small investment, ranging from $600 to $1,200 depending on the scope of work. Learn more. During this phase we are preparing on-site field research of existing conditions, “as-built” floor plan drawings, a “scope of work” document, rough conceptual drawings of the proposed spaces, and a Pre-Estimate of the project.

Can Progressive Design Build take care of the entire remodeling project?

The design-build system reduces these risks by combining design and construction quality, cost, and scheduling into a single point of liability. Ultimately, this means that design-build projects are typically more cost effective, higher quality, and completed on schedule. Learn more.

How long will my remodeling project take?

Project timeframes naturally vary depending on a project’s scope, location and the existing home’s condition. 

As a design-build firm, we work with homeowners to make their material selections and finalize design details well before construction begins. Consequently, leading up to construction, you can expect the pace of work to be fairly consistent to this realistic version of our own planning calendar.

Once work has started, homeowner changes or unexpected issues can cause setbacks, but with our design-build team securing up to 98 percent of project details upfront and leaving plenty of time for questions and decision-making, project delays are less likely. Learn more about our three-phase design-build process.

Does Progessive Design Build belong to any professional organizations?

Yes, Progressive Design Build selects business partners and associations with the highest standards for excellence. We are proudly associated with SWFL Inc. Chamber of Commerce, My Florida, NARI, Remodeler’s Advantage, GuildQuality, and Dura Supreme Cabinetry. Learn more.

Can you provide a list of past clients I can talk to?

Yes, in addition to many client testimonials we would be happy to provide you with a list of references.

Do I need to move out of my home during the remodel?

It depends on the scope of your project and what your comfortability is in living through the construction. A bathroom or home addition, for example, may be more manageable to live through compared to a whole house remodel. 

With the right contractor, you can go spend a few months at your vacation home and come back to a beautifully remodeled kitchen, on time and on budget, without having to live through all the dust and noise. Follow these 6 secrets to pick a contractor you can completely trust to master your home remodeling project while you’re away.

If you choose to stay at home, Progressive Design Build has instituted best practices for keeping you and your loved ones safe and comfortable throughout the construction process.

Having moved in, we are delighted with the entire renovation and thrilled by the compliments from many new neighbors on how pleasant, courteous and helpful the various contractors had been at all times. Progressive gets five stars from us. Thanks for a job well done.
Bryan & Ann M., Estero, FL
Tom and I can’t wait for the “winter season” when we will enjoy the new addition every day! You have been a wonderful team to work with!
Tom & Michale C., Bonita Springs, FL
Thank you for all the wonderful things you did to make our job turnout so well. It was such a pleasure to return to our “new home” during the holidays. We weren’t here so you had to make many choices for us. You always did the best thing, not the easiest. The quality of the work was most important to us but the fact that you gave us a time schedule and stuck to it was important. We love everything!
Barbara & Larry W., Bonita Springs, FL
It was such a pleasure working with the team at Progressive Design Build on our recent renovation project in Fort Myers. We especially thank Greg Brown for his special attention to detail and the entire team for their excellent “long distance communication” skills. We were thrilled that we could handle everything from our home in Virginia and that our project was completed not only on time, but ahead of schedule! We would highly recommend Progressive Design Build to everyone!
Geoffrey & Magda G., Fort Myers, FL
Both Tom and I would highly recommend Progressive Design Build, Inc. for any job. The quality of the workmanship along with on time completion made it an enjoyable experience.
Tom & Mary D., Captiva Island, FL
We were entirely satisfied with everything and everybody. Nice people!
Dr. John A., Fort Myers, FL
I think during negotiations with Mike Spreckelmeier that he was very honest. This gave me a great sense of trust. I felt I was entrusting my home to a friend!
Linda Z., Fort Myers, FL
Progressive has performed three projects for us over the last three years. most recently January 2014. All the projects were very well done — I respect Progressive’s professionalism, dependency, and integrity. I would highly recommend them to anyone, and have done so. I worked with another contractor on a project during the last three years — there was no comparison regarding Progressive’s performance and the performance of the other contractor — the experience with Progressive was MUCH better than the other service provider. My impression is that Progressive may not be the cheapest service provider, but work is performed on schedule and at the highest quality level. I will happily pay a bit more to receive the quality of the service they provide. I trust Mike and will definitely use him again if a need arises.
Tom S., Bonita Springs, FL
Progressive completed a major remodeling project for us on time and on budget. Our project included new bedrooms above our garage, expanding existing bedrooms, expanding our lanai with a new outdoor kitchen, a new roof, upgraded landscaping including a new irrigation system – all coordinated and managed by Progressive. The owner, Michael Spreckelmeier, is a man of his word, communicates extremely well, and will always do what is best for the customer.
Duke and Kathleen D., Bonita Springs, FL
We had 2 doors replaced. The project required major changes to the door openings. Michael Spreckelmeier was very easy to work with and he was involved with all phases of the project. The project was completed on time and on budget. We are pleased with the outcome and will use Progressive Design Build in the future.
Jack and Maryanne P., Bonita Springs, FL
Progressive did a room addition, new outdoor grilling kitchen, some plumbing and painting work. Their attention to detail was impeccable. They stayed on task and on their time line. They are very respectful of the client’s property, and very thorough when planning and preparing for the project. They follow up at each stage of the project to ensure all phases are to the client’s satisfaction.
Dave and Noreen T., Bonita Springs, FL
We hired Mike Spreckelmeier at Progressive Design Build to remodel our condo in Bonita Bay. We wanted to completely redo the kitchen as well as eliminate the sliders from the kitchen and family room leading to the lanai. Progressive completed the remodel while we were back at home in Illinois. We were thrilled to return to an outstanding result. Not only was all the furniture back in place, but everything was very clean and neat. We even found a new filter in the air-conditioning unit! Outstanding job, would highly recommend Mike and Progressive.
Dick and Judy G., Bonita Springs, FL
Progressive Design Build helped us design and build a new family room/kitchen in the summer of 2013. We selected them after extensive bids based on the quality of their vision for the project and sterling recommendations from friends and neighbors. All work was done while we were away for the summer. We could not be more pleased with the results. Not only did Progressive owner Mike Spreckelmeier do a first-rate job managing the flow and costs of the project (which was exactly on-budget), but also the finished product had the shortest punch list of any of the five major renovations we have done on various properties with other builders during the past two decades. And, our home was cleaner when we returned than when we left before construction. We unconditionally recommend Progressive Design Build.
Roy and Patty B., Bonita Springs, FL
We have used Progressive Design Build twice in three years, both times on home improvement projects including adding walls on different second homes while we were out of state and unable to observe the work. Both times we returned to the projects that were done to perfection, as well as the clean-up. We are now full time Florida residents and are using Progressive again for a much larger project. We would unequivocally recommend Progressive Design Build.
Arthur and Cindy P., Bonita Springs, FL
Progressive Design Build did a significant project for us: new kitchen, family room, new ceramic tile throughout the house, moved a wall in a bedroom, new paint in most of our rooms and a total new paint job on the exterior of the house. They covered all the details of the job before we left for the summer. They kept us informed weekly with emails, photos and phone calls when necessary, and finished the job two before we came back in the fall. They did an excellent, outstanding job and the punch list took less than six to complete. I will use them again for our next remodel project. Excellent, Excellent, Excellent!
John and Barb F., Bonita Springs, FL
Progressive has performed three projects for us over three years — (1) an outdoor kitchen in January 2011; (2) Kitchen remodel and wet bar construction in Fall 2012; and (3) outer wall repair/reconstruction in January 2014. All the projects were very well done — we respect Progressive’s professionalism, dependency and integrity, and would highly recommend them to anyone, and have done so. We worked with another contractor on a project during the last three years — there was no comparison regarding — the experience with Progressive was MUCH better. My impression is that Progressive may not be the cheapest service provider, work is performed on schedule and at the highest quality level.
