- Once you’ve made the decision to renovate, it can be a little overwhelming as to where to start, so that’s why we’ve made it easy for you. “The How: Design Process” tells you step-by-step what’s involved when you choose Excel Builders.
Tell Us What You Want
You describe and we’ll do. It’s your renovation, so tell us all about your dream in a couple of ways so we can make it come true as soon as possible. Check out The Invitation to Meet where you can give us an annotated rundown of what you’re looking for. It includes forms for things like architectural style, pets, contact information and house specifications- the basic information we need to fit the best person to you.
After that, we’ll give you a call to set up the best time to see you and spend a full hour taking pictures and measurements, and listening to you tell us in greater detail what you’re looking for. That’ll give us a solid idea of the project, and we’ll give you an educated estimate with a service agreement and a price guarantee.
Now your renovation starts to take shape! You can choose one of two options: our Design Process involves chatting with our interior designers to help shape your story, family and needs- who you want to be in your home will become defined. Alternatively, you can skip right along to developing the Project Plan, the part where we get down to the nitty gritty. At this point, we’ll submit our final bid where you can choose (us!) which bid you’re going to go ahead with.
The Beginning of the End
What might have been a tough journey with other companies is just another stop on our smooth ride to your destination: The Construction Plan. This is where we’ll start to make the drawings that represent your dreams into a reality by prepping all the trades, starting to execute the plans, taking care of the final inspections and initiating and performing the punch lists.
Yay! We’re done, and you finally get to exhale and enjoy the home you’ve always wanted. To put the finishing touches on the whole project, our team will perform a final sweep-through so everything’s clean and then we’ll walk you through our work. We’ll explain everything we did and give you tips and pointers on any new things you might need to know about- like how to use a new faucet system- and answer any questions you may have, like “Can I kick you guys out of here so I can sit back back and enjoy my new home?” We’ll be more than happy to do that, but not before we make sure that you have a list of plans and any other supporting documents.
And we just ask one thing: if you like our work, tell other people! We’re really happy you found us and we got a chance to bring the home you envisioned to life, and we’d love a chance to work with more fine people like yourself. Referrals, reviews, “likes” on Facebook, evaluations and recommendations- we’d appreciate all the feedback you could give. At Excel Builders, “The How: Design Process” is just one of the many things we consider the norm, not the exception.
So, drop us a line, put up your feet, and watch the magic unfold.
