We start with lots of questions - and really listen to your answers. What are your ultimate goals for your project? When do you hope to complete the project? Have you remodeled before? What general budget do you have in mind? How do you describe your style? What do you like - and not like so much - about your house? Asking these kinds of questions helps determine whether we're the right company for you and your remodel. Of course, during this stage (and throughout your project), you'll have ample opportunity to ask us questions, too. During Step 1, we'll explore your project wishes, wants, and needs.
We will need to schedule a time where we can meet at your home. Here we will gather information, sketch layouts, take pictures, discuss options, brainstorm, talk about goals for the project & understand exactly what you are wanted to accomplish.
We divide this step into two categories: small-scope projects and large-scope projects. At this point, less complex small scope projects can expect a complete project estimate. For larger scale projects, we will take the data we collected from our meeting and create a preliminary outline of your project. This will include a general project scope, realistic budget range for the project, and a project timeline. This is designed to set baseline investment expectations and is what we like to consider a very important "first step" in developing a well communicated partnership.
This is where things really start to happen. It begins with Home Indeed's creative minds who will collaborate on different ideas and possibilities. We'll make sketches and then review the parameters that were discussed with you at the initial meeting. Are these ideas consistent with the style you want to achieve? Are they in line with the budget we discussed? Can they be accomplished in the time periods we outlined? This is also where fun begins for you and selection of products will start to be made.
Simultaneously while the drawings and renderings come together and selections are made, our estimators are busy creating a detailed project scope and precise cost analysis. Along with the design, these three components are vital for a successful project.
During this step, we start the checklist of all the items that will need completed before the project can begin. Items like plan submittal, building permits, selection sign-off, scheduling & purchasing are completed. Ensuring all pre-project items are completed is extremely important to ensure the project can start off with out a hitch.
Chances are this is what you've been waiting for: construction. As you watch the project take shape, you'll likely experience a whole range of emotions, from anticipation to excitement and, yes, even frustration. A remodel isn't without the occasional hiccup. The weather can take an unseasonable turn, special orders can be delayed, and design adjustments can become necessary during construction. If so, rest assured we'll look for ways to accelerate the process, but never at the risk of compromising quality. During this step, you'll see those seemingly unending decisions come to fruition.
Construction completion doesn't mean the end. At Home Indeed, we build relationships, not just remodels. So, go ahead and reclaim your space. Start enjoying the improvements. Invite friends and family over to admire. And don't forget our 5-year warranty. It's our way of letting you know that your satisfaction is our highest priority.
