What Really Happens During a Remodel
Having your home remodeled is uniquely different from building a new home. With remodeling, your home is the worksite. You work and live side by side in the construction site. Your routine will have to be adjusted to make your dreams a reality. Your living space will most likely be more cramped as living zones are cordoned off. This is especially true in kitchen and bath remodels. There is no sure fire way to prepare for this intrusion, other than to know it is coming. Even though we try to maintain a steady pace until completion, there will be unavoidable delays. We interact with you all the way; informing you of details, changes and better ways to accomplish our mutual goals. A successful remodeling project will depend on the communication between our management staff, our sub-contractors and suppliers and you.
Managing a job site is a skill just like carpentry or other specialties. You may find it a mystery how the myriad of literally thousands of components intertwine to successful completion. In the beginning, progress appears to go fast. During demolition, masonry and framing drastic changes take place. Then when the drywall is hung and finished, things become subtler. Trim work is agonizingly slow. Cabinetry, tile, countertops create lapses in scheduling. As the project moves closer to completion, progress will seem to slow, while costs may seem to go up. There are a myriad of little details (such as mirrors, shelving, locks, final grade, accessories etc.), which need to be completed to create that final finished project. Consistent and open communication between our staff, trade contractors and you will enhance your understanding of the process, remove the fear, provide an opportunity to exchange ideas and help make the experience a positive one for everyone involved.
Finally, expect to be pleased. You’ll find that our well-planned, well-executed remodeling process will make you smile for years to come. Our sole objective is to meet and exceed your expectations, so that you can recommend us to your friends or use us on your next remodel. What better way to remodel is there?
