The Design/Build Process
What it is and Why it works
Design/Build is a term that refers to a contractor taking ownership of the entire remodel project. We oversee the design and construction of your project.
There are so many great reasons to go with a Design/Build Company, but here are a few of our favorites: We will never put something into a design that we cannot build, we will design within your budget, with just one phone call you can make changes, and we will use vendors and subcontractors that we are familiar with and trust.
Phone Consultation – We will listen to you. We want to hear about your project and learn about your needs and ideas. We also want to get an idea about whether we could be a good fit for you. After our initial phone conversation, we will usually get back with you by the end of the next business day with our advice for moving forward.
In Home Meeting – If we feel like we could be a good fit for your needs, we will schedule a meeting. Gary, the owner of HC Remodel & Design, will come to your house and see the project first hand. At this meeting, Gary will go over your ideas, the scope of the project and materials you may be interested in, and your budget. You should allow at least an hour for this or more depending on the scope of the project.
Give Us Your Ideas – We want to be prepared to see and discuss your ideas at the In Home Meeting, so we will send you a questionnaire about your project. It is important to complete the worksheets at least a couple of days before your In Home Meeting, so we can have some time to review your ideas.
Design Agreement – Once we have agreed on the scope and budget, we enter into a Design Agreement. This is where the fun begins! We will get to work designing your living space and collaborate with you every step of the way. We love to share Pinterest boards or Houzz ideabooks to help in this process.
Proposal- Once we have agreed on a final design, we will create a Firm Price Proposal detailing the scope of work needed to make this design your reality.
Getting Started on your Project – Once you have accepted our proposal, we bring you onto our online job management portal. This is a very user-friendly app that you can get for your smartphone or PC that will keep you up-to-date with all the details of your project, from beginning to end. Our clients love that they always know exactly where they stand with their budget, selection items and schedule.
Communication – Online, you can easily communicate with us, and us with you. We know you don’t like surprises (and neither do we!), so great communication is a top priority. Are you going out-of-town? You will still know what is going on at your home & how things are progressing. If you have a question or need information, we will respond to you quickly with the information you need.
Final Walkthrough – We are committed to giving you spaces that you cannot wait to come home to. We are excited to show you the final touches and make sure everything is just how you want it!
Warranty and Follow Up – HC Remodel & Design is also excited to hear how you are enjoying your new living spaces. We guarantee all of our projects with a full year warranty and we follow up with you six months and one year later to make sure everything is just right.
