What to Expect
Awareness is a key ingredient to success. If you have it, teach it. If you lack it, seek it. - Michael Kitson
Our goal is to take everything negative you've heard (or experienced) about contracting and reverse it. Knowing what to expect and having transparency with our current and future clients, is extremely important to us.
Here is our process:
Make an appointment: Making an appointment is quick and easy! We have three appointment options:
Complimentary 15 minute virtual consultation, Basic Project Consultation (in-person), Premier Project Consultation (in-person).
If you have any inspirational pictures, feel free to email them to us prior to your appointment so we have an idea of what you're envisioning. The fee from the in-person consultations will roll into your project, if you should award us the project.
Meet with Us: During the virtual or in-person consultations, we'll discuss your ideas and needs and take a look at the space you had in mind.
If you opt for a virtual consultation, please have rough measurements ready for your space and send photos prior to the meeting, if possible. Please do not expect an exact verbal estimate. We give a ballpark range because it takes time to consider all factors of your project and put together a proper proposal. An exact verbal estimate wouldn't be fair to you, or us, so we ask that you opt for one of the more in-depth appointments if you're looking for a more exact budgetary number.
The in-person consultations will take place in your home. We'll discuss your vision for the space and take a few measurements and photos for our reference.
The Bid Package: Virtual Complimentary Consultations will include a ballpark estimated price range, which could fluctuate due to the finer details, such as design finishes. We may give the ballpark number to you over the phone and/or email the estimate for your records.
The Basic Project Consultation will include us taking measurements onsite, discussing what can or cannot be accomplished as well as a ballpark price range.
The Premier Project Consultation will include a more solid estimate for your project, a detailed scope of work and if needed a design packet including renderings will be incorporated. The design packet will give you a better visual of what the finished space and materials will look like. We spend more time putting this package together, so it does take about two weeks turnaround time. During the two weeks, we work behind the scenes gathering information from any subcontractors, material bids, design and design finishes. The price for this consultation will vary based upon project size. $1,900 covers a kitchen or master bathroom project. Additions or new builds have additional components and will need additional time and details to complete, therefore we will need to estimate the consultation charge.
If you have any questions regarding your bid package, feel free to contact us! We are more than happy to answer any questions you may have and/or review the package with you. Typically we will send our initial bid within 2 weeks.
The Project: Our contracts have an estimated overall project time, per VA state law. Fluctuation may occur and will be clearly communicated to you because we know the importance of your time and schedule. All projects are completed in compliance with Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code (USBC). All permits are pulled by us. While work is in progress, the project site may not be the cleanest, however at the end of each day, we clean the area from tools and debris. If anything is not to your satisfaction, let us know immediately. Communication is key to a healthy relationship.
After the Project: Upon completion we will provide you with any/all warranty information necessary for the different components to your project. This is where you can sit back, relax and enjoy your new space.
Did you know?
Contractor license classes designate the size of the projects (monetarily) that a contractor can work on. If your project is $1,000 or more, a valid VA contractors license is required.
