OUR REMODEL PROCESS: FROM THE FIRST MEETING TO THE FINAL PRODUCT
The Initial Meeting
At the initial meeting, Buck will hear your vision for your home and assess the space. He will talk you through different options, tell you more about our business, and provide you with a ballpark estimate of cost. If you are comfortable with this price point, and feel that we are the best company to trust with your project, we will enter into the Project Development Phase.
The Design Consultation & Project Development Phase
To come to a final design and firm cost proposal, Buck will schedule a meeting between you, himself, and our project manager. Our design consultant will also be present for most large remodels. After we reach a design vision and layout, your project manager will schedule a time for you to choose materials: countertops, backsplash, flooring, and any other materials needed for the project. We never start a project without having every material chosen and subcontractor scheduled: this allows our clients to have as smooth of a remodeling experience process as possible. Buck, who designs our cabinets for every remodel, will work with you and your project manager to design the cabinetry. Your project manager will likely need to meet with some of our subcontractors on site to get their opinion on the project. He will also collect cost estimates for each of the subcontractors.
The Price Proposal & Final Contract
Your project manager will compile all of the project elements into a Scope of Work / Design Package. He will also put all costs into one price proposal, along with an approximate timeline. These documents will detail everything needed for the project. Once your project manager presents you with this, all aspects of the project are agreed upon, and the final contract is signed, your project begins.
The Construction Phase
Your project manager will be present throughout every step of the remodel. He will coordinate all subcontractors and meet them on site, communicate with you regularly, answer questions, and problem solve when unexpected problems arise. You will see our lead carpenter often, as he does much of our demo, cabinetry, and trim. Cleanliness is a big deal for us. We have an air scrubber on site during demo, and protect all surfaces not being removed from construction dust and debris. Before a project is complete, you will create a “punch list” of things you would like your project manager address. He will make sure all loose ends are tied up and that your project is completed to your liking before concluding the project. After this, enjoy your new space!
We have been working with our subcontractors for years. Our relationships with each of them depend on a high level of trust, communication, and mutual respect. We intend to continue our business relationships with them for years to come, so you can be assured that they are treating your project with extreme care. All of our subcontractors are highly professional and some of the highest quality tradesmen in their respective trade. Our plumbers, electricians, and HVAC specialists are all licensed by the state of Texas. We are so grateful for our continued relationships with our subcontractors!
