Successful remodeling projects start with planning

With any home remodeling project, big or small, there should be a significant amount of time spent planning, by both the contractor and the homeowner.  When you are about to embark on a 12 week long full kitchen remodel, some of the decisions to make may seem like far off details, but there is real benefit in planning upfront.

Having all or most of your fixtures and finishes selected prior to construction will keep your team moving.  We can properly plan ahead for your mechanical rough-ins (e.g., making sure pipes come out of the wall in the right spot), and have all the information necessary to make installation a breeze. When your contractor is not waiting for decisions to be made, they can fully complete one phase of work without needing to backtrack.

Once selections are finalized, our staff will work closely with our vendors to insure that all materials and fixtures will be on site when we need them.  Some materials can be fragile, and occasionally shipments come in damaged.  With plenty of foresight, we can manage these issues without delaying progress.

With so many design resources available, homeowner planning can begin long before your project does!  We love when clients have an understanding of their style, and come to us with ideas on Houzz and Pinterest.  We can work with you to curate the look you want to achieve, while finding you quality products within your budget.  

Planning does take time and attention, but it’s a really wise up-front investment to make if you’re considering a full remodel in your future. Although planning does take time and effort upfront, it minimizes the amount of wasted time and frustration throughout the project. Does your contractor believe in planning, or did they just tell you to run to Home Depot and pick up everything you want them to install?
