Over the next several months, I am going to discuss with you the details of using “The Design Build Remodeling” process and the benefits it affords you, the homeowner, with your next remodeling project.
Remodeling can be a unique and exciting adventure if you have been reading my blog posts over the past couple of years. You have learned it can be loaded with pitfalls as well. I have worked hard in trying to convey to you the best practices you should follow for remodeling a kitchen, bath, lower living area or even an entire home.
Design Build is the next level for the professional remodeler. Design Build is a premiere project management process that affords you, the homeowner, to have complete control of your decisions, design and pricing from the onset. The main benefit to you at the end of your project is that you will have no unpleasant surprises.
How many times have you had projects go sideways because of an overlooked simple but costly mistake? It might have been a front entry door choice, threshold heights or even the location of the lighting that when installed, was not what you really wanted. Imagine being able to eliminate 97% of those issues on your next remodeling project.
Using Design Build as your new process, a licensed and trained contractor will work with you extensively on the front end of the project. The idea is to provide you the details of every component in your initial design such as mechanical and plumbing systems, electrical, material selections, windows and doors, to name just a few, and to ensure all are correct and accurate from the onset. You will know your exact pricing and this process will provide you with the luxury of being able to make changes on the fly.
Finally, you will save time using the Design Build process as it affords your contractor time upfront to purchase items such as cabinets and custom materials, that take a longer time to obtain, and to schedule your installation with more precision. Nothing is better than a project brought in on time and on budget.
In addition, only a Design Build Remodeler will be able to manage all aspects of your project as a single source of contact and to deliver exceptional customer service and provide quality craftsmanship on every job.
