Benefits of Design Build Remodeler Over Regular Contractor

There are distinct benefits to hiring a design build remodeling company over a regular contractor. First, you will have firm control over your project’s budget. Second, you’ll save time selecting materials and final design. Third, you can see a 3D rendering of your new space before you commit. Fourth, you can “test out” the company’s customer service, organization and communication. Finally, you’ll benefit from discounts on materials and you won’t have to manage trade partners, schedules or timelines.

Here’s a Step-by-Step Look at Our Remodeling Process:

1. Initial Meeting | 2. Design Agreement Meeting

Your free in home meeting is designed to discuss your vision. We’ll review ideabooks, Pinterest boards and other inspirations. We’ll answer the question, “What will be renovated and why?”

Your Design Agreement Meeting is also free to discuss project design ideas, pricing and projected timelines. If you are happy, you’ll sign an Design Agreement and pay for the work completed in the Design Phase.

3. Collaborate | 4. Meeting with Design Team

You will join our online forum used to communicate ideas, images and plans with the entire team. You will view and check off a list of “to dos” and you’ll have a calendar for material deadlines. Next, you’ll have an in-home meeting with the design team to discuss finishes. Measurements will be taken and all inspirations will be reviewed. We even have a tutorial on how to make selections.

5. Plans & Selection | 6. Design Presentation Meeting

Your design team will present your layout options. All your selections will be curated and include quotes. You’ll also have another in-home meeting with your Design Team that will include 3D renderings. You can adjust plans and review all plans for final approval.

7. Trade Meeting | 8. Construction Agreement

You’ll have an in-home meeting wth your trade partners (Electrician, plumber, other craftsmen) to disucss specific details of your project. Then, you will have a fixed price agreement provided that includes a detailed scope of work. You will also be provided with a start date and project timeline.  Then and only then will there be a contract signed and paid deposit to lock in your start date.

9. Preconstruction Meeting | 10. Construction

Your and the production staff discuss logistics like pet safety, dumpster location, storage, etc. All your questions are answered, and you have contact information for the full team, including your project manager. For construction, a barrier is installed to keep dust out of living spaces. Demo begins. Your jobsite is cleaned daily and you have weekly project walkthroughs, as well as approval of any change orders.

11. Completion & Warranty
