Stress-Free Home Design Build
At Tabor Design Build, we understand the importance of communication and stress-free remodeling. We’ll keep you informed at every stage of the process, from the first phone call to the last day of clean up. We assume responsibility for your entire project, from initial design concepts to finished home. We find that careful planning is the key to making sure your project runs smoothly, with minimal disruption to your family.
During our first consultation on the phone, we ask a lot of questions and listen carefully to your answers. We may ask you to send us a copy of your land survey and rough sketches of your remodeling ideas. We also look forward to answering any questions you may have.
If it is mutually agreeable, we’ll schedule a meeting to view the area of the proposed project. We’ll discuss the project’s feasibility and your remodeling priorities. We’ll also set a realistic investment range that meets your wants and needs.
A successful remodel requires a number of meetings to make sure we get an exact idea of the changes you want made to your home. We’ll work with you to create 3D models of your home and develop a design you love.
Once the design is finalized, we’ll draft construction drawings of your renovation. We’ll help you choose every detail of your project, from gutters to drawer pulls, with as much (or as little) assistance as you need. We’ll keep you informed of approximate costs along the way to help you stay within your budget.
At Tabor Design Build, we know that a great deal of the stress of renovation comes from unforeseen costs. This is why we schedule a “trade day” for each project. We invite all our trade contractors (i.e., the roofer, plumber, electrician) to the job site. They give us an exact price, not an estimate for their part of the project.
After all these steps, we present for your approval an extensive Construction Agreement that lists every item in your project. The agreement includes the final price for the job, not just an estimate.
We want to make sure that the construction process runs as smoothly as possible for you and your family. The lead carpenter oversees all aspects of your project. He will be at your house every day to make sure everything goes smoothly. Our production manager will meet with you weekly to keep you informed of the progress of the project and to answer any questions you may have. We’ll also provide you with a schedule that details when specific project tasks will be done and who you can expect in your home each day.
When the work is done, our production manager will take you through the final walk-through. We don’t consider your project done until you’re happy with it. As an added assurance, all our work is covered by an extensive warranty.
