How The Process Works

Step 1: The Initial Visit

The Initial Visit will consist of an on site Project Assessment. During the visit a discussion about the scope of the project aand materials to be used, will be followed by a walk-through of the proposed area, obtaining site dimensions.

Step 2: Drawings & Estimate

Depending on the complexity of the project, elevation and design drawings may need to be completed in order to obtain accurate estimates for the total project. Once drawings have been approved, a bid will be put together covering all aspects discussed during the initial visit. All bids are firm, if the customer adds work beyond the initial contract they will be billed accordingly.

Step 3: Modifications to Design

Modifications or product changes are made if necessary.

Step 4: Approval of Contract

Once both parties agree on the scope of work to be completed and corresponding price, a contract will be signed prior to beginning work.

Step 5: Obtain Permits

Obtain permits if necessary. Anytime the project involves work with structural elements, electrical, HVAC, or plumbing a permit is required.

Step 6: Perform Work

Work is performed as agreed to in the contract. We oversee the entire process from start to finish. Our services include the entire contruction process which includes coordination of employees, the subcontractors and you. This will ensure everyone is on the same page throughout the project. We do this because open lines of communication help the project go as smooth as possible.

Step 7: Clean Up & Final Inspection

Upon Completion we perform a rough clean which includes removal of all debris, broom clean floors, and removal of product stickers and excess caulking. The last step is a final walk through with you to verify everything was completed to the highest of standards.

Return on Investment

ROI is essentially what someone is willing to pay for the project you completed. ROI for any project depends on several items:

1. Market

If the market is saturated with homes similar to yours at the time of sale, it is important to have features that set your home apart.

2. Quality

The quality of the project is very important. It is easy to cut corners due to cost, especially when considering windows & sunroom. The overall quality might be the feature that sells your home in the future.

3. Function

What is the intended use of your project and how does it flow?

4. Appeal

This is what will sell your home in the future. Does it enhance the style and comfort of your home? Will it appeal to the buyer?

5. Proportion

In proportion to the other defining features of your home, is the project too small or much too big? Even though you want the deck that takes up the entire back yard, a future buyer may want something more modest.

Chances are if you are planning a project, your intentions are to stay in your current home for some time. Be careful when reading reports showing ROI calculations as they are all assuming you were to sell your home the day the project is complete. A more accurate approach would be to find a current ROI article and compare it to the same article 5 or 7 years ago. This will give you a more accurate picture of future appreciation.
