The first step to accomplishing you r remodeling goals is to contact us. We can be reached by three basic ways: phone, email or by filling out our contact form below.
After you have contacted us, you will speak with one of our team members within 24 business hours of initial contact. Taking a few minutes to speak briefly over he phone is a great way for us to know how we can help you. This also gives us a chance to start establishing a relationship and understanding your goals. This process will help us get to the next step.
Tell us what you are thinking, be open and honest–and in return we will do the same. This will build a solid foundation for the success of your remodel.
During the phone call we will be gathering additional information such as:
The goal at the end of this phone call is to schedule an in-home consultation.
The in-home project consultation will take about one hour to complete. We want to see your home and the areas of importance. Once we have had a chance to see the space, then we will sit down and discuss more specific information such as:
Whether you’re looking for a small bathroom renovation or a whole house remodel, all home remodeling projects need a design. Design is the foundation of any project. Like building a house, you always start with the foundation, as the foundation will support your home for many years to come. Design is that foundation. It will provide you an accurate representation of what your space will look like when completed. It will also provide the very specific details needed to complete your project.
We have a four step design process:
After the design is complete, we can start the proposal. Then we will schedule a time to present the preliminary design and proposal. The proposal is where you get to see the final cost of your remodel based on the design and your project specifics.
Our proposals are broken down into 20+ different phases, allowing you to see the cost breakdown for each phase of the remodel. Each phase will show the actual cost, approximate cost, allowance item costs, or not applicable as they apply to your remodel. The costs will be explained as we review the proposal. Along with the breakdown of phases, we set allowances. Allowance items are materials you select for your remodel, such as tile, cabinetry, flooring, etc. The final selections of allowance items will be completed with our designer after the contract is signed.
It is time to sign the contact. Signing the contract allows us to schedule your remodeling project, order supplies, and complete the final selections of allowance items. Our contract is a standard contract, explaining the start date, end date, breakdown of payments, along with items required by the State of Minnesota.
With the design, contract, and related agreements in hand, we can get started on your remodeling project!
