  • Why does a renovation project cost so much?

    It’s important to set a realistic budget for your project and then make sure we’re managing to your budget throughout the project. The first step is to put together a plan and answer some basic questions to develop a scope for your project. There are many details to get right in a renovation, so write everything down before work begins. This can be the best way to get everyone on the same page. Depending on the size of the project, it may be helpful to bring in an architect or designer to help develop your plans. We work with many architects and designers and can put together a team of professionals to help manage the project from start to finish.

  • What is the timeline for the project?

    We build a detailed calendar for each of our projects. The timeline for a project really depends upon the scope of the project. Below are some general timelines:

    Kitchen remodel – 7-12 weeks

    Bathroom remodel – 3-5 weeks

    Basement remodel – 7-10 weeks

    2nd Floor Addition/Full House Remodel – 16-20 weeks

  • What is the total budget for construction?

    We provide a detailed budget by line item. The estimate breaks out all labor and materials costs and provides full transparency. This enables you to control the scope of the project.

  • How is renovation project initiated?

    The first step is for us to meet with you to understand the scope of the project. We can work together to determine if it would be helpful to bring an architect or designer on the team to help with the plans. Once we have the scope of the project defined, we will schedule a “walk-through” with our sub-contractor teams. Based on this input, we provide a detailed project estimate and calendar for your review and approval.
