Our Remodeling Process
Deciding to remodel your home is a big decision. That’s why we strive to get to know you and your families’ needs while you get to know our team as well. It’s important that a relationship is formed to establish trust and to ensure that you and our team is on the same page about your project.Communication is the key to a successful relationship. Your design team includes a Project Coordinator, Designer and Project Manager. They will see your project through from first meeting through warranty. Our design build process is simple but detailed. Why share our process with you? So you know exactly what to expect when working with Kliethermes Homes and Remodeling. This is how we’ve been able to complete thousands of successful remodel and new construction projects.
Step 1: Discovery This is where we get to know you, and you get to know us! We start with a free on-site consultation, where we gain an understanding of your needs, budget and timeline of the remodel project. The more we understand your expectations, the better we can fulfill our promise of an end result that works for you and your family.
Step 2: Design Your project coordinator, along with your designer, will visit your home, verifying all the details of your project and taking measurements. From there, your design team will work on creating the solution and providing visual aids such as 3D renderings, when needed. You will have access to your online client folder where your project, photos, documents, communications and calendars are stored. This makes it easy for you to check the progress of your project, even when you’re out of town. We will arrange a meeting once plans are ready to review. Depending on the complexity of your project, there maybe one or several designs to review.
Step 3: Finalize Design During this phase, we prepare a “Design Agreement,” which outlines the scope of work, options, preliminary drawings and establishes a range of cost. Now, you and your selections coordinator have the fun job – to choose the materials for your remodel project. We call this the “Selection Meeting,” where you will choose flooring, fixtures, lighting design, cabinets, tile and much more. This very important step allows us to prepare an accurate proposal – NO guesstimating and NO surprises! Once selections are complete and design is final, we will present the proposal and review the final budget, drawings and selections.
Step 4: Construction We hold a pre-construction meeting at your home to discuss logistics and expectations prior to starting construction of your home remodel. This ensures that our team is all on the same page. Once work has begun, we’ll conduct a weekly meeting with you to review progress and ask for feedback. This is a critical part of the process. We want to ensure that we are meeting your expectations and keeping you updated on your schedule throughout the process.
Step 5: Completion When work is nearly complete, we will prepare a final checklist, noting any outstanding items. Your project isn’t finished until every detail meets our exacting standards. We will work to complete these items as quickly as possible, normally in two days or less. We pride ourselves on being On Time, On Budget, With Happy Clients! We want you to be able to say: “Wow that went just as we planned with NO SURPRISES!”
Step 6: Warranty Secure in your KHR warranty, you can relax and enjoy your home. We will stay in touch during your warranty, and beyond, to ensure your complete happiness. At Kliethermes Homes & Remodeling we realize that the road through a remodel may seem like a long one. From first meeting to completion, you will have the comfort knowing we are dedicated to quality building and to keeping you involved and informed throughout the process.
At Kliethermes, we understand that we’re not just remodeling your home… we’re creating your dream.
