About Us

Whether remodeling, adding on, or building new, count on Melton Design Build for inspired architectural designs, unparalleled craftsmanship and a personalized customer experience.


Melton Design Build is your trusted remodeling company and partner for creative architecture, design and impeccable construction.

At Melton, your goals are our goals. We want your home to beautifully fit your lifestyle as well as your budget. And since we think the remodeling process should be as good as the results, we’ve developed the Melton Design Build Process to ensure communication is clear and consistent and that everything happens when and how it’s supposed to, giving you the results you expect on-time and on-budget. Since we implemented the process in 2003, this commitment to our clients has helped us achieve industry-leading client satisfaction levels.

Melton Design Build remodeling company has a full-service design department and can provide architecture as well as kitchen and bath design.

Our in-house design center offers hundreds of product samples. Our design staff uses the samples to help clients visualize what their project will look like when it’s complete.

When you choose Melton, you enjoy the security of knowing you are working with a remodeling company that is fully licensed and insured and our staff genuinely cares about you and your home. Unlike many general contractors, Melton Design Build is committed to hiring employees rather than depending primarily or exclusively on subcontractors. Using expertly skilled employees not only gives us more control over project schedules for quicker job completion, it also helps us consistently deliver the high-quality workmanship and client service you expect and deserve.

Melton has been honored with many industry awards including several design awards and Remodeling Magazine’s Big50 Award.

The awards recognize excellence in architecture and design as well as business acumen and commitment to best practices in construction.

As the Boulder area’s first remodeling firm to earn the Building Analyst Professional Certification by the Building Performance Institute, and one of only a small handful of Energy Star certified general contractors in Colorado, we remain committed to ensuring your home performs at its best.

Melton Design Build is a proud member of the Boulder community. We have formed long-term ties through our involvement in many local organizations.

The Premier Boulder Home Remodeling Contractor
Melton Design Build has been servicing the Boulder community for more than 20 years. We’ve developed lasting relationships with our clients, our trade partners and community organizations.
Melton Design Build Process
To make the Boulder home remodeling process smoother and more enjoyable, we’ve developed the Melton Design Build Process, a set combination of best practices and proven procedures that provide homeowners with greater value as well as a sense of comfort and control.
The design build model brings the entire remodeling process – from design through construction – under one roof. The benefit to you is a design that fits your budget, an easy process, and the security of knowing one company is responsible for your project from beginning to end. At the heart of the Melton Design Build Process is open and constant communication through each project stage. Our clients love the ease and flow they experience when they work with us.
“The whole design/build process made it easy. They kept on-schedule and to the budget. There were no surprises.”

Melton offers “value engineering” because we know that a home designed around your priorities is a home you will love. Value engineering helps you get the most from your budget. We focus more of your budget on the areas of your home that are most important to you, so you get greater value.

At Melton, we take a “whole house” approach that increases your home’s energy efficiency and makes it more comfortable. We use state-of-the-art equipment to evaluate your home from top to bottom, and based on this assessment, recommend comprehensive improvements that will yield the best results for you and your family. Once you select the improvements that fit your needs and budget, we will help you get the job done.

Homeowners sometimes mistakenly think that Green Building costs more money. When we talk about a Sensibly Green approach at Melton, we are referring to those green building approaches, materials and technologies that are in fact green, make sense for your project and objectives, and provide you the most value. You’ll find we recommend approaches with no or low additional cost, or have a cost that is reasonable based on your priorities for being green.

As a dedicated Boulder home remodeling contractor, maximizing client satisfaction is paramount at Melton, so we use GuildQuality, the remodeling industry’s leading national independent homeowner satisfaction survey organization. They provide us with the detailed information we need to refine our procedures and improve our company. Our commitment to our clients has helped us achieve some of the highest satisfaction levels in the industry, and we won’t stop looking for ways to make our homeowners happy because we feel every client should be a satisfied client. The average remodeler only gets a 64% rating when it comes to whether a homeowner would reuse or refer the remodeler they selected. Some industry experts believe the number is even lower. Check out our current ratings.

If you’ve ever had a remodeler who didn’t take special care to contain the project’s dust and dirt and keep it from traveling to the rest of your home, you will really appreciate the fact that Melton crews make a special effort to keep the worksite safe, clean and, most importantly, keep dust and dirt confined to the work area. Plus, we clean the work area daily and post our Jobsite Rules that all Melton employees and subcontractors must follow.

More than half the homes we work in have children and/or pets living at home while the project is underway. We don’t assume that the children or pets will exercise the same good sense as the adults in the home, so we’ve developed procedures geared towards their needs and safety.
“Everyone that worked on our project was friendly and kind, as well as highly skilled and efficient. They all went out of their way to be friendly with our three-year-old, too.”
Melton’s Red Carpet Warranty ensures you’ll be happy with all the details of your project. We’ll call you to schedule warranty visits three, six and twelve months after your project is complete to check in on your project. We’ll test smoke alarms, touch up grout and caulk, inspect behind your refrigerator or washing machine for water leaks and other things. We invest the time in this because it’s important to us that everything is just right and you are happy with your remodel.
We also offer small project and home maintenance service through our Home Care & Repair Department, as an exclusive service for our previous clients, long after your project is complete.

Melton’s Design Build Team

Melton Design Build offers in-house design which means you can work with Melton from conception to completion of your project. We believe a project is only as good as the design from which it’s built.

Sometimes homeowners are under the impression they don’t need design. However, there’s more to the design process than you might think including permitting; detailed design drawings to obtain permits and to be used by carpenters to build the project; and product selections such as cabinetry, faucets and more. Design is an important part of the process for nearly every remodeling project.
Using the design build process with our architect led design build team since 2003, our process allows you to have the most control over your home remodeling project. You and the Melton team work together to develop and design your project all while keeping your budget, needs and wants in mind. We’ve found that this process makes clients happy in the end.

Through client satisfaction surveys, we discovered clients have a difficult time visualizing during the design process what their project will look like in the end. To alleviate this problem, Melton built a design center filled with products samples including cabinetry, flooring, fixtures and more. Our design team also provides high-quality plans and renderings. Explore our design center to see how Melton can make your home remodeling dreams come.

Melton’s Design Center

At Melton, we think a good remodeling project is only as good as the design from which it’s built. We work hard to create innovative designs that reflect our clients’ personalities and meet their needs and wants. To help clients visualize the end project throughout the design phase, we use 3-D representations and renderings of the new space and our interactive design center complete with model kitchens and baths and hundreds of samples including cabinetry, tile, countertops and flooring. Take a virtual tour of our design center by clicking here.

We’ve taken our design drawings to a new level of sophistication with software that allows our design team to create on-screen 3-D models with fly-through capabilities. This offers clients the chance to see the home dimensionally and visualize what it will be like moving through the space. Photo-realistic images offer a unique look at what the finished project will look like by drawing in textures and colors directly from client product selections.

Possibly the highlight of the design experience is the Melton design center. Nothing makes the design experience more fun than opening doors and drawers and getting a first-hand feel of the materials you might choose for your space. Mix and match tiles, see how your ideas will look when the project is complete. Our interactive cabinet display allows you to put your favorite cabinet door with your flooring and countertop choices.
