Commercial construction is a very specialized field and not many contractors can produce the results needed in this environment. Not only the building codes applied are different, each tenant needs are unique and oftentimes the deadlines are set in stone. The choice of contractor for these projects is critical. Smarter Remodeling has built many commercial projects from small offices to large retail stores and it has the right combination of expertise and talent to make your project a complete success.

Design, planning and permitting

We can provide you with design and planning services to make your project a complete success from beginning to end. Our team of architects will provide advise on traffic flow, merchandise display, colors, code compliance and much more while our team of permit expediters will get your project approved at the City in no time. We specialize in commercial construction and have been doing it continuously for over 17 years even through the worst recession this country has suffered. This speaks of our ability to adapt and provide the services our customers needs all the time.

Drywall and drywall textures

We have one of the best drywall hanging and finishing teams in Jacksonville, With over 20 years of experience in the trade, our team can provide hanging and finishing services second to none. From simple patching to Level 5 finish we can do it all.

Light gauge metal framing and specialty framing

Backed by more than 12 years of experience in metal framing and drywall, we can build architectural ceilings, archways, columns, nooks, domes, suspended hard ceiling, floating ceilings, curved walls and many other custom details for your home or office. With our experience using light and heavy gauge metal, we can build anything you can think of and give you that touch of elegance and distinction that will separate your project from the rest.

Floor coverings

Each project requires a different approach to floor coverings. Many details are normally overseen but our qualified experts will make sure your floor meets all your design and functionality criteria while maintaining your budget. We can provide concrete staining, epoxy floors, hardwood floor, laminate flooring, LVT, VCT, ceramic tiles, porcelain, granite, marble and many other floor coverings.

Fire rated walls

Fire rated walls are required in almost every commercial project and the requirements varies from one to another. While the most common rated walls are one and 2 hours, there are many variants and different UL designs. From simple single layer construction to multi layers with specific fire retardants. Hiring the right contractor from the beginning will save you money and time while ensuring your project gets completed on time and budget.

Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing

Our M.E.P trades are one of the best in the City and very possibly in the state. We have worked with them over many years and build the kind of relationship and trust that only time and work ethic can develop. We use our tradespeople over and over in all of our projects, this translates in better prices and better service for our customers.

What Our Customers are Saying

Smarter Remodeling - voted in the top 50 fastest growing companies in Jacksonville! Why? Because many of us TRUSTED Fabian with our project and our budget! If you want to get your commercial or residential project done right from the first time you should give these guys a call!
Venci Danailov
Fabian Videla and the Smarter Remodeling team are the most responsive, honest and comprehensive remodeling contractors I have ever had the pleasure of working with or recommending. Whether it is for windows, kitchen remodeling, electrical and AC, or room additions, I have always found them to be attentive and ready to explain where they are at in the process, or make a better suggestion, whenever I had a question. I also have used them several times on projects at the beaches and in the Historic District with my clients and friends, many of whom will hire them for one project, then call them later to do another remodel or upgrade. An additional bonus is the high level of technical expertise used in collaborating with homeowners to assist in visualizing the final design and aesthetics as well as the importance Fabian places upon job cost accuracy from day one. Their patient and relaxed approach from inception through the final punch list is a huge plus in today’s fast paced contracting environment, and provides a degree of comfort and confidence that makes them a clear and trusted partner.
Russ Goodman
Smarter Remodeling does the job the right way! They know what is required for the project and include everything needed in the estimate. They do not leave things out of an estimate that are needed for the project just to give you a smaller estimate...only to hit you up later with change orders that jack up the price. They are knowledgeable, honest and professional...and they can help you achieve the lasting impression you desire from your remodeling project.
Hunter Malin

Debra Richardson

Commercial work can be very technical, but it was one thing after another. There was no hiccups, there were no problems and it was under budget. Fabian really saved us, big time. I'm happy as can be, and honestly, I thank Fabian.

John Rose

From the first time, Fabian came in and gave me his ideas and I felt so comfortable with him. He knew all the processes. We know other people that have had work done with serious complaints. We have been able to say that we did not have that experience.
