The Home Remodeling Process
Sandcon Remodeling Inc. – Twin Cities MN
Typically, the home remodeling process works this way …
We will spend time discussing those things about your home you’re unhappy with, and your thoughts about what you would like to change. By no means should you feel that you need to have made all of those decisions before you consult with us. A remodeling contractor analyzes a space and knows what’s possible to do within it. In many cases, the completed projects are considerably different than what the homeowner envisioned originally.
Your first meeting with Sandcon will typically take 1-2 hours depending on the size and the complexity of the project. It is always helpful if you have blueprints from the original construction of your home. If not, we will be taking measurements of everything relevant to the project. We also take digital photos to pair with the measurements to recreate the existing plan.
We will schedule a follow-up visit in 2-3 weeks to present you with our preliminary ideas. At that meeting, we will have preliminary cost projections, blueprints and 3D images of our proposal. We also will present you with a schedule showing a proposed timeline for the project we propose.
When you decide to work with Sandcon on your remodeling project, you can count on precision; not only in terms of execution, management and workmanship, but also in price. In fact, when you authorize Sandcon to proceed to a final contract, we shall guarantee no increase in the price specified in the preliminary estimate, with the exception of the following:
- Cost increases due to concealed conditions
- Client selection exceed allowances specified to contract
- Start date exceeds preliminary contract expiration (usually 90 days)
