I Want to Remodel … But Where Do I Start?

You want to remodel, but you’re not even sure where to start? Relax! It’s very common to be unsure of who to call when. Just thinking about it? Ready to start demo? Regardless of where you are, we’ll meet you there!

We’ll meet you where you are. Whether you just got the itch to remodel yesterday or you’ve been pouring over ideas for years, you’re in the right place. We consult with homeowners just beginning to think about a remodel and those who are ready to sign on the dotted line. We have customers who are ready to begin the planning process a week after our first conversation, and we have customers we first talked with years ago.

Is what I want even possible? The answer, usually, is yes, what you want is possible. The question you really need to ask is, “Is what I want possible within my budget.” Throughout our planning process we will let you know if a certain decision is a budget buster so that you can make an informed decision.

Does it make sense? We’ve done a lot of remodels, so usually, we know what will work and what won’t. Through our experience we can let you know if X makes sense with Y and Z, or if X will mean Y and Z aren’t possible, or if X means you have to choose between Y and Z. Our job is to understand your goals and to lead you to solutions that meet those goals within your budget.

We’ve already got plans. Great! We’ll use those plans as part of our planning process. Often those plans are tweaked as we move through planning and selections. Because we always create our own production documents, it’s not at all necessary to bring plans, but we always welcome any planning you’ve done, formal or informal.

We have all the materials. If you’ve already sourced all your materials, we’re probably not the right remodeler for you. Sourcing your own materials isn’t the wrong way to remodel, it’s just not how we remodel. We source the materials for our customers so that we carry the responsibility for those materials and if something is wrong, we have the relationship with suppliers to get the problem solved ASAP. Additionally, by sourcing the materials, we know that they are of a certain quality and that we will be able to reliably warranty the job.

You’re further down the remodeling road just by reading this post! How else can you get ready to remodel? Attend one of our upcoming kitchen and bath seminars or schedule a free consultation. There’s never any obligation, and we’re always happy to share ways we can help you love your home!
