Hometec focuses on homeowners and residential design. In designing a home or addition, we provide a number of solutions to the problems and criteria defined by the homeowner. Homeowners find it easier to review and critique several possible solutions rather than create a solution from scratch themselves. Therefore, our job is to show our clients a variety of ways to accomplish what they want to do to their home.
