Check references and make sure the remodeling or renovation company you’re considering is reliable, stable and professional.
2. Envision
Give yourself the creative space to envision what you want. Take a walk through one of our showrooms and get inspired by the different materials and displays.
3. Goals
Before you begin, think about the goals you want to achieve. Is stellar design the driving force? Improved functionality? Resale? Perhaps you’re looking for energy savings? Or maybe it’s a combination of all these elements?
4. Planning
The more time you spend planning, the easier the process is. It’s much more efficient to follow a plan than to work ad hoc. We encourage potential clients to keep a folder of photos and magazine clippings that exemplify elements of design and style that appeal to them.
5. Budget
Develop a budget range for yourself that will help you make decisions when you are choosing materials and appliances.
6. Communicate
Communication is an important part of a successful renovation project. Ask a lot of questions and work with a company that you trust to give you the answers.
7. Point Person
A renovation project has many moving parts so make sure that you have a Project Manager who will be dedicated to the project from beginning to end.
8. Process
Before you hire a renovation or remodeling company, ask them about their process and how they approach projects.
9. Warranties
Ask them if they have a warranty for their work and make sure you get all the warranty information for the manufacturers.
10. Enjoy
While a major renovation project can be disruptive, it doesn’t have to be stressful. When you have the right company, you’ll enjoy the process and revel in the results.
