So, you've decided you want to remodel a part of your home, converting your attic or basement space, adding to or updating your kitchen or bathroom, building an extension, or simply sprucing up the exterior. Whatever it is, you are certainly going to have a few big decisions to make!
Choosing individual contractors may seem like the cheapest option, but you still have the legwork to make it all happen on time and within budget. The risks of things going wrong multiply the more individuals you try to make work together. One option is to hire a company that could complete it all. But is this the right decision for you?
You Get What You Pay For
This may initially seem a little more expensive, however, experience shows that this is often a misconception. A complete design and build company that manages the entire project from start to finish offers fixed pricing, meaning you know where you stand throughout. All work is carried out by highly skilled and experienced teams working in harmony, making it a much less stressful way to go.
Expertise & Project Planning
From the initial consultation through to completion, a contracting company will manage the entire project. This is of enormous benefit to ensure the jobs are carried out timely, to fixed costs and with no unexpected hiccups on the way. Right from the initial consultation to design, you'll benefit from architect planning, production teams and then finally fitters, carpenters and builders who all have the skills and expertise to carry out your entire project without involving third parties.
A well-planned project could give you peace of mind that the job will be done on time and budget. When it comes to completing a project on time, choosing a dedicated residential construction business will ensure you have all of the required trades working together for the common good of your project.
The team approach offered by a design-build firm for any remodelling project no matter how large or small, ensures that everyone involved in the project is on the same page when it comes to when work needs to be completed. Disagreements or trades not being available in the correct time frame are the major causes of project upheaval. Choosing one company such as Dedicated Residential Construction to carry out the entire project avoids this.
Fixed Cost with No Hidden Surprises
A fixed cost project company may be slightly higher compared to your usual choice of a contractor who works from his van. Consider the range of skills and expertise that you are accessing. There will be no 'add-ons' through poor survey work or 'estimates' that are missed.
If you choose a contracting company, which has the industry expertise and experience to avoid these potential pitfalls and can give you the remodelling project of your dreams, you'll have peace of mind that there will be no huge additional bills upon completion.
Skilled Craftsmen Using Quality Materials
A dedicated remodelling and building company offer experienced highly skilled teams working on every step of a project ensuring that you have the best in people power ready when the job demands it. A construction and renovation company would use the highest quality materials available for your budget too.
An experienced company will provide you with quality build materials and fittings, as they know the market and will guide you to the best for your project. Partnering with a one-stop shop for your project also gives you access to their buying power, which could reduce the amount you have to pay.
In summary, when you factor in the risks you would be taking by using many individual contractors, choosing a dedicated specialist company offering a full design and build solution for a fixed price could well be your smartest move.
