Our Home Remodeling Process
Initial Contact By Phone or Email
Paul Kuzma will have a conversation with you to get a general idea if our company would be a good fit for you. Some general discussion of your house type and condition, schedule, and budget is helpful to see if an in-home meeting should be the next step.
Paul Kuzma will meet with you to explain how the extended design and construction process works, but most importantly to listen to your space, design, schedule, and budget needs. With over thirty years of experience, Paul may be able to share some information about a similar project we’ve completed or catch a glimpse of unique opportunities for your home. We will agree to a next step from this meeting or agree to not continue if there doesn’t seem to be a fit.
Preliminary Design Phase
If you decide to further explore the project with us, a second meeting with Paul and possibly a design associate would be scheduled at your home. This meeting provides a chance to get acquainted with the designer, if applicable, and for us to firm up the budget and scope of the project.
From this meeting a preliminary design agreement would be drawn up and agreed to by both parties. This agreement would detail an understood scope of the project and budget range. Floor plans would be developed, pricing with specifications, allowances and a final presentation of the project to the homeowner by Paul Kuzma would complete the preliminary design phase.
A construction contract will be drawn up based upon the preliminary design and specifications and allowances. It will include permit plans, permit fees, all labor and material to complete the project, time of completion, and warranty.
The construction phase includes a pre-construction meeting with Paul and the Project Manager, periodic meetings with Paul and/or manager to review progress and anticipate upcoming selections or design issues. Our construction schedule flags dates for activities that necessitate the client to vacate a certain space. We pledge to keep open lines of communication especially via e-mail and phone. Post-production: we generate a punch list with proper follow-up to reach 100% homeowner satisfaction.
