Once you have moved past the “Dream Phase” and are ready to move forward into the proposal process, we would love to meet you and start putting your dreams into motion. Give us a call at (630) 933-9323 or email us to arrange your initial visit. We will schedule one of our creative and experienced design consultants to meet with you, see your space, and start the dialog to an exciting and successful remodel. We will get to know you and your style, hear your ideas and share ours, and help you to start really visualizing all that your space could be.
Within the next week or two, depending on the scope and complexity of your project, we will have a proposal prepared. We would love to sit down with you to go over the proposal, explain our thoughts and ideas, and answer any and all questions and concerns you will have about your remodel. We are here for you and having the ability to thoroughly explain the remodeling process upfront will only help your project go much more smoothly and provide for a memorable and enjoyable remodeling experience.
Once you decide to move forward with us as your preferred contractor, we will get a contract signed with you, collect a deposit, and set forward expectations of what’s to come; we will give you an tentative idea of schedule, leave you with a bit of homework, and, most importantly, schedule your pre-construction meeting. It is then that we introduce you to your Project Manager, or your go-to for the remainder of the project. Your Project manager and your Design Consultant will meet you onsite and discuss your project specifics before starting any work. Communication is key to any successful remodel and we want to make absolute sure we are all on the same page when it comes to your home and your remodel.
Now to your homework….. Let the fun begin! It is time to choose materials for your job. It starts with selecting cabinets, fixtures, colors, tile, paint, and more. We will layout what selections we need from you, as well as your allowances to help you stay on budget.
Choosing the perfect materials and fixtures for your new space is a crucial step in the design process and even more crucial step in keeping your project on schedule. Materials can be purchased from our preferred vendors or vendors that you have already identified. We will take you shopping — with personal visits to our showroom or our preferred vendor showrooms, through the pages of catalogs and on the internet… whatever suits your style and schedule. Once you have selected your materials, we will begin ordering supplies so that everything is ready when your job starts.
We can’t stress this enough, Communication is key! We will be in touch regularly as the start date approaches so that you can plan accordingly. We’ll work with you to determine the morning start time, and we’ll lay down tarps and move furniture if necessary. Demolition can be messy, but we will do everything possible to minimize the impact on your home and belongings.
We will continue to update you frequently about the status of your project and what will happen on any given day. We want to do everything possible to ensure that the interruption of your daily life is kept to an absolute minimum.
The dream complete! Your newly remodeled space awaits!
