Initial meeting (planning phase and budget phase)
Approximately 60 to 70% of our Kitchen remodels use the same layout and update their Cabinets, countertops, plumbing fixtures, flooring and appliances. Our Guranteed 10 Day kitchen remodel may be the right fit in this circumstance. While the other 30 to 40% are custom kitchens with removal of walls, structural changes and possibly an addition. The initial meeting is where our team of professionals and the client decide what the next step in the process is. Many clients have praised our team at this phase as our #1 goal is to ensure we provide a realistic and budget conscious way to move forward with the kitchen of their dreams. This educational process is invaluable to any client and we are excited to share our over 25 years of remodeling experience and the combined 100 years of design and construction experience within our team. After the initial meeting the client will have clear and concise idea of what their kitchen remodel investment will be, timeline of the project and an understanding of what our capabilities are as a remodeling company and how organized and Professional our team of experts are.
Not all kitchens require a custom design package prior to the contract phase. But every kitchen requires 3D renderings of every wall that will get remodeled. The sole purpose behind the 3-D renderings is that the client can get a clear visual of the remodel space, and everything that will be under construction will be outlined. Custom design packages include detailed floorplans, 3-D renderings, and sometimes architectural drawings that include documents that need to be provided to the city or county for permit approval. Our team accomplishes this by taking photos and measurements of your existing kitchen and draw the details of the rooms, including walls, flooring, cabinetry, countertops, windows, lighting, finishes, etc. Inspirational photos and notes that we have shared about together are also Incorporated. All these documents together are extremely helpful as it brings to life the idea that you and your family have imagined. The documents also confirm whether what you had in mind either works or does not work in reality. Whatever the case may be our team of professionals are there to handle any situation and assist you with ideas and suggestions so that your dream kitchen can come true.
The contract phase is a handful of documents that include; scope of work document (contract) lists all of the trades and the projects specifications. Timeline that includes milestones that trigger the payment schedule. Insurances, bonds, licenses and warranty information. The change order process. Total cost of labor and materials. This contract phase is very important, and our team of professionals will ensure that every detail is answered and nothing is overlooked.
