Commonly Asked Questions


What Areas Do You Serve?

Hammer & Hand general contractors serve the Portland, OR, and Seattle, WA, areas, including NW Oregon and the I-5 corridor through Everett.


Can You Help Me Determine if My Home Is Worth Remodeling?

We love helping potential clients determine whether a remodel is worth the investment. This process starts with one of our project managers visiting your home for an assessment. From there, we’ll prepare a report that includes:

  • The property’s potential
  • Order of magnitude; and
  • Cost estimates

The service costs between $250 – $500 for the first home assessed by Hammer & Hand, depending on the location of the project and the scope. This fee is credited back to you if you decide to complete your remodeling project with us.

Contact us today for more information on our home assessments and the steps to complete a remodeling project with Hammer & Hand.


I Haven’t Hired a Designer or Architect — Can You Help?

Yes! We would be pleased to guide you through your project from start to finish, including helping you select the ideal architect for your project.

We partner with a diverse group of architects with different personalities, aesthetics, schedules, and more. Let us help you find the right fit.

  • Size of the room(s)/building
  • The type of project
  • Structural and engineering requirements
  • Finish choices; and
