Before You Begin

 Tips & Suggestions for Your Home Improvement Project

  1. Check references and make sure the remodeling or renovation company you’re considering is reliable, stable and professional.
  2. Give yourself the creative space to envision what you want. Take a walk through showrooms and get inspired by the different materials and displays.
  3. 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. 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. Develop a budget range for yourself that will help you make decisions when you are choosing materials and appliances.
  6. Communication is an important part of a successful renovation project. Ask questions and work with us to give you the correct answers.
  7. 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. Before you hire a renovation or remodeling company, ask them about their process and how they approach projects.
  9. Ask and make sure you get all the warranty information for the manufacturers.
  10. 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.
