North Shore, MA Design-Build Contractors
Are you planning to remodel your bathroom, kitchen, or your whole home?
It can be exciting to imagine the possibilities. However, many remodeling projects result in frustration, unexpected costs, and don’t live up to your expectations.
The solution? Godfrey Design-Build.
Design-build remodeling is a process that allows you to hire one company to handle the entire project, from design to construction and everything in between. This is in contrast to the traditional, often frustrating remodeling process where you would be responsible for hiring and coordinating the work of designers, architects, engineers, contractors, and subcontractors.
At Godfrey Design-Build, we’re a dedicated design-build remodeling firm. We’ve been helping homeowners throughout the North Shore of Massachusetts for years.
The Design-Build Process
From initial consultation and design through construction and beyond, the design-build process always starts with you!
When you contact Godfrey Design-Build, we’ll get to know you and discuss:
Most importantly, we’ll talk about the vision you have for your North Shore home. The flexibility of the design-build process means we’re able to help you bring your vision to life. That’s the beauty of design-build: a unified team of designers, architects, contractors, and construction professionals working together to solve problems and create a finished product that you’ll love.
What to Expect
Before starting any construction, we’ll schedule an on-site meeting with a designer. There, you’ll have a chance to review your wish list, including any must-haves. Following this meeting, we’ll develop a preliminary design and show you 3D renderings which you’ll have the chance to review.
Usually, a few reviews and revisions are needed to finalize the design.
Once the design is approved, we’ll visit the site with our trade specialists so they can view the space and understand the existing conditions. We’ll also consult with them after product selections to identify any potential issues and get final pricing.
Now we’re ready to go shopping! We’ll look at cabinets, countertops, tile, appliances, hardware, and everything else that’s needed to complete your home remodeling project. We’ll get your approval for these, as well as for the total price of the job. We’ll sign a build agreement and then you’ll put down a deposit. After we obtain the necessary permits, we’re nearly ready to start construction!
But unlike some remodelers, we don’t dive straight into construction. Instead, we hold a final meeting with the entire design-build team where we:
- Anticipate problems and brainstorm solutions
- Review the goals of the project, as well as the timeline and budget
- Discuss every team member’s roles and responsibilities
- Set schedules and deadlines for your project
Then it’s time to start building!
“Working with Pat at Godfrey Design-Build was great throughout the entire process — from planning to construction. He was incredibly professional and patient during the design stage, ensuring we were 110% happy with the plans. We absolutely love the look and quality of our three-season room, and would recommend working with Pat to our friends.”
