Have you ever wondered why renovations go wrong? Here are some of the most common complaints we hear from homeowners:
- The contractor said the work would be completed by the end of June. It’s August and there’s STILL no end in sight.
- The estimate they provided at the start of the project bears no resemblance to what it’s actually costing me.
- Why am I the one driving the project and making all the design decisions?
- There seems to be an endless stream of people in my home but I’m not sure who’s actually in charge!
Does any of this sound familiar?
Most complaints are the result of remodelers not having a clear pathway and strong synergy between the design and construction phases of a project. They’re all too eager to get started and give you a ballpark estimate with no reality around allowances for your design choices, the complexity of your remodel or they have no project plan in place to get you to your end game.
No one wants a “I wasn’t expecting that!” moment in the middle of a remodel which inevitably adds time and cost to your project.
That’s why we created the Renovation Roadmap™ as our way to help you navigate the remodeling process. Think of our proprietary system as your ticket to an exceptional remodeling experience. We take care of every step of the process from plans and designs to providing exact costs and a detailed timeline for quality construction.
Why is this important? It eliminates change orders, unexpected bills, delays, frustration and — most importantly — it allows you to have some fun along the way!
Our Reno of the Month features a kitchen remodel in Fairfax Station. Our clients had a poor experience with a previous remodeler and had been searching for another partner to work with for 4 years!
Friends and family said there was no way we could finish on time (having not had that experience with remodels themselves) and our client took great delight in walking everyone through the completed spaces ON TIME!
Why was our client so happy? Because they felt completely taken care of from start to finish.
