During the initial conversation we ask several questions as you discuss the needs and wants of your custom build or renovation. If we collectively believe that our company may be a good fit for your project, we will set up a time to meet at your place.
At our first meeting we will listen to your ideas and help you prioritize your wants and needs. For remodel projects, we may assess the existing structure and conditions and take some preliminary measurements of the project space in order to give you a ballpark estimate for the project cost.
The next step is for us to enter into a Project Development Agreement. This phase confirms that you want to explore your project further with us in order to receive a firm, fixed-price proposal. It is during this phase that we build the scope of work, draw renderings of the space, and work with you on choosing the material finishes for the project space. There is a retainer fee for this process that is credited back to the cost of the project once construction begins.
After the renderings of the space are complete and the material finishes are chosen, we will use that information to put together a firm, comprehensive, fixed-price proposal with a detailed scope of work, specifications, general conditions and payment terms.
We will apply for permits from the city or county that you live in. We will schedule each of the trade contractors and begin to order materials and confirm lead times to make sure that materials are on-site in time for their installation.
We believe that communication is essential, so our team will have several informal meetings with you, we enter daily logs and upload progress photos through our project management software app, Buildertrend.
At the end of each project, you will receive a list of materials, subcontractors & vendors for your records. We will also provide you with our warranty clause. We may provide contact information for different reporting agencies such as Houzz, Facebook and Google should you wish to share your experience with others.
