Our unique renovation process begins with the initial consultation and ends with a stunning completed project that exceeds your expectations. We lay out this step-by-step process for all of our clients so they know what to expect as well as what you will achieve when you work with us.
Step 1 – Online Inquiry
Easy as completing the form on our contact page. Please provide us with as much information on the project as possible. If we are able to help you with your project, we will reach out to you to set up an appointment to meet and discuss your project.
Step 2 – Initial Consultation & Budget Planning
The next step in our process is the free Initial Consultation. This first meeting can be conducted either virtually or in your home and is designed to get a better understanding of what you envision your renovations to achieve, both aesthetically and functionally.
During this phase, we will discuss everything we need to consider for your renovation, including design tastes, lifestyle, and desired outcome. From our consultation, we can provide you with an estimate and budget to give you a rough plan to the costs with your proposed project. If the planning budget is approved, we can proceed to the next steps.
Step 3 – Architectural Drawings & Design
As we determine your wants and needs for your renovation, we will create architectural drawings for you that will bring your vision to life.
These architectural drawings provide a visual model and guideline of how we will go about your renovation and what the outcome of the project will be.
In addition to our architectural drawings, we provide renderings and designs which will better help you visualize your finished space.
Applying for permits can certainly be painful for homeowners, which is why we make the process easier for you. We apply for permits on your behalf and ensure all the proper paperwork is submitted to the city to prevent any project delays. A retainer will be required at this stage to cover the costs of the drawings.
Step 4 – Final Scope of Work, Pricing & Contract
Once you approve the scope of work and pricing, a detailed contract will be reviewed and signed by both parties which will include project schedule, payment structure, and other details of your renovation.
Step 5 – Finishes & Colour Selection ServicesOur Ancaster Design Centre is available to all Clients to help pull your project together. The final touches of design and colour selection are what will personalize your renovation. Our team will work with you in all design aspects from colour and material selection, to decor and furniture layout. We are inspired to create an aesthetically pleasing space for you to enjoy and call your own.
Step 6 – Construction & Project Management
As your general contractor, we will arrange and schedule all the necessary trades and provide oversight of their work to ensure quality and compliance. We perform a full range of construction services you need for your project, from demolition to framing to project completion.
We adhere to this process in all of our renovation projects so that we can stick to timelines, stay within budget, and eliminate as many surprises as we can along the way. What you will be left with is a stunning, finished project you will be proud of.
Final Step – Post Construction & Warranty
After your project is complete, a detailed walkthrough will be completed and any final deficiencies will be addressed. Your 24 month warranty period begins.
