Answers to your most pressing questions.

What is a Spec Binder?

A spec binder is a master document (usually in binder form) that professionals use to specify what specific items are being used in a renovation.

I am a homeowner, can I buy this or is my contractor supposed to do it for me?

Either, or. You are welcome to buy any design on our website and use it with your contractor. If your contractor signs up for our Pro Plan, they will be able to give you a discount you can use when you make a purchase.

How can I be sure a design will work in my specific space?

Spec Binder designs are specific to material finishes and therefore are adaptable to a variety of spaces regardless of layout. The designs can help a contractor accurately bid your job and can also be used during the construction and installation process.

What is included with each design?

You get a lot. Check out our What's Included page for more details.

Can I change a part of the design or substitute a material selection?

Absolutely, you go right ahead a screw up our designs! Just kidding, of course you can make changes, and you won't even hurt our feelings. We suggest that you consult with us by phone, or with your contractor before you pull the trigger.

I want to re-use the design I purchased on a future project. Do I have to re-purchase it?

You can re-use this design as many times as you'd like. However, each download includes a one-time resale license. That means that you can only re-sell this design once. If you would like to resell it more than once you will need to re-purchase.

how does the contractor referral program/discounts work?

Check out our Pro Page for more details about this program.

How do you select the products you recommend?

We take our product recommendations very seriously. We only specify materials or brands that we have used in the past, and have proven to be high quality. Additionally, our opinions cannot be bought, so we do not participate in affiliate programs in exchange for specification in our designs.

Can you purchase materials for me?

Yes, we do provide purchasing services. Contact us by filling out this form and we'll reach out ASAP.

I have questions about how to execute a design. Can you help?

Yes, each design comes with a free, 30-minute private consultation with our experienced team of interior designers. Check the link in your order confirmation email to schedule time to chat with us.
