Our Remodeling Process
A design-build remodeling process designed around you
At Godfrey Design-Build, our primary goal is always to help you achieve the truest version of your vision. With our design-build process, we’ve made this easier than ever.
Throughout the entire process, we’re here to support your vision. We know that remodeling your home can be intimidating, and we’ll do all we can to make sure we set expectations, communicate clearly, and stick to our word.
Thinking about remodeling your home? The first step is always contacting us to get the process started. We’ll fill you in even more on our process and what to expect when investing in a home remodeling project.
Our Design-Build Remodeling Process
Initial Consultation and Process
- Contact us with your name, contact information, and some basic information on goals for your project.
- We’ll speak over the phone to get to know you and your property, goals, timeline, and budget.
- An initial on-site visit will be scheduled to further discuss your project, expectations, and budget range.
- We’ll complete a proposal detailing the particulars of your project and design for your approval and signature.
Design-Build Process Once Proposal is Signed and Approved
#1 On-Site Meeting
Once you decide to take the next step, we’ll schedule an on-site meeting to get more familiar with your home, as well as review your wish list and must-haves.
#2 Preliminary Design
After this meeting, and using your guidance from the initial consultation and on-site meeting, our designers will develop an initial design for your project. You’ll have a chance to view 3D renderings and submit revisions to perfect the design.
#3 Construction Planning
Once the design is approved, our trade specialists will view the space and identify any potential issues. This will lessen the possibility of unexpected problems once we enter the construction phase.
#4 Material Selection
We’ll then begin to work with you to find the materials, appliances, and fixtures that will make your project special. We’ll work with you and get your approval for items during the selection phase.
#5 Final Scope, Pricing, and Permits
Once we determine materials and the final scope of the project, we’ll determine the final projected pricing for the project. At this stage, we’ll order all products and materials, begin obtaining permits, and accept your deposit to get started on construction.
#6 Final Design-Build Team Meeting
Time to dive into construction. Before putting shovels to the ground, we’ll hold a final meeting to ensure everyone is on the same page. We’ll anticipate problems, review the details of the project, and set schedules and deadlines.
This is when we execute your vision. We handle all communication with subcontractors and specialists and make sure that everything goes smoothly. We’ll be in contact with you the entire time, ensuring you always have an outlet to raise concerns with us and be informed of the status of the project.
#8 Punch List & Ongoing Communication
Once we’ve completed construction, we’ll do a walk through with you to come up with a final “punch list” of issues that need to be addressed. Once completed, our warranty will begin. We’ll stay in contact with you and are always available to address problems that pop up after construction.
