Why the Design-Build Process is so Important | Chanhassen Remodeler

A remodel is not returnable. 

Unlike a car — which you can trade in as soon as you’re ready for a change — a remodel is a long-term investment in your home.

What if you could have less stress, control costs, and ensure you end up with a remodel you want to keep?

Working with a design-build firm to handle your remodel is the all-inclusive solution more and more homeowners are seeking. Instead of hiring an architect and a contractor separately, you can hire a design-build firm to cover your entire project, from the initial design through final construction.

The design-build process is designed to make your remodel a success. Design-build means that from the start of your project both your design and contracting work come from the same team so that everyone is fully prepared to make your remodel a winning investment in your home. This is the time when your expectations can be clearly communicated, as well as allowing your designer/contractor team to clarify the process, price, and end goals.

Why does design-build work so well?

  • Design-build gets the remodeling process started in the right direction. Design-build means you’re working with a team of individuals (such as a designer, project manager, and/or site supervisor) who are all aware of your goals. At Excel Builders this team works with you and with one another from the start, making sure everyone is working toward the same end.
  • Design-build means less stress throughout the process because you’ve completed the design up-front. 
There are often hundreds of items that need to be addressed to complete a remodel in any given space. Design-build means that at the very beginning of the project you look at the space you want to remodel and write down every single aspect that will be affected. Going through these details from the start means there is less stress later on. Your questions have been answered, and so have your contractor’s.
  • Design-build gives you better control of costs. 
Remodeling costs are hard to gauge when there are no specifics to go on. Without a design an estimate is merely a very rough ballpark. Once you have an actual design in hand, the costs of remodeling your space will quite simply be much more accurate!

Design-build means thoughtful, thorough, and careful planning for your project, typically increasing the cost of a remodel by just 5%. If you’re going to remodel, do it right! Design-build allows you the benefit of remodeling a room or adding space with the confidence that you’ll enjoy your investment for years to come!
