Home Remodeling, Finish Carpentry, & Custom Cabinetry
With year-over-year growth in sales and a 23% profit margin!
This home remodeling company in Lincoln has had year-over-year sales growth since 2017 and a 23% profit margin in 2020! This well-established business specializes in kitchen and bath remodels, additions, finish carpentry, and custom cabinetry design and installation. Serving Lincoln and surrounding communities for nearly 30 years, this highly skilled design staff offers an unmatched experience from beginning to end. Clients include remodeling homeowners looking for a tune-up or additions, and residential/commercial contractors looking for interior finishes in a newly built home. A solid team is already in place; an office manager handles all incoming phone calls and e-mails from new and existing clients, as well as quoting, invoicing, scheduling, and ordering. A project manager runs the jobs on site, and 6 experienced laborers make sure the work is top notch from start to finish.
Home remodeling and additions account for 50% of their revenue, 40% is finish carpentry, and 10% custom cabinetry. Assets include $78,000 worth of portable equipment, shop equipment, and hand tools used by three crews of laborers.
Growth opportunities are endless. Adding another project manager would allow the company to take on more jobs. The demand for home remodeling and additions has increased in recent months due to lower interest rates on home loans and construction loans. Priced at $645,000, a 10% down payment of $64,500 returns $181,710 in the first year after debt payments – a 282% return on investment.

The Firm Advisors used a cash flow valuation methodology to determine the purchase price of the business.
Cash flow is the sum of business net income plus any owner perks and any non-onward expenses. Then we prescribe a multiple based on 20 parameter which valuate the health of the business. For this valuation, we used the 2020 cash flow value making the business price much more favorable to the buyer.
The formula used is as follows:
Cash Flow x Prescribed Multiple = Fair Market Value
With this information, the computation is as follows:
$264,884 x 2.45 = $648,966
Purchase Price: $645,000
