Before our initial meeting, consider what you'd like to achieve with your remodel and determine your "must-haves" and wish list items. It's the perfect time to discuss your ideas and budget and ask questions.
Once you decide that Hercules Design Build is your remodeling company, we will prepare a design agreement covering the entire design process. Then the fun begins. You'll meet with our design team, discuss your vision for the project, and share any photos and images you have that best illustrate your aesthetic. Our design team will take what you share with them and then get to work surveying your home, fine-tuning ideas, assisting you in selecting materials and finishes, seeking bids for sub-contractors and materials, and procuring all the necessary permits. Along the way, there are several budget checks to make sure we are keeping in line with where project costs need to be. If it is required to bring the project before the Architectural Review Board, we'll take care of that as well. We work hard to make the process as easy and exciting for you as possible.
When the design of your remodel has been completed to your satisfaction and receives the approval of the municipality where you live, we will finalize construction costs and create a construction agreement. This agreement includes a detailed scope of work, allowances for items that need to be selected, and a payment schedule. After the agreement is signed, our production team will prepare the job site, salvage items marked for reuse, and protect areas impacted by construction. We will monitor our progress, your budget, and all inspections. Once construction starts, we will only finish once we have addressed every detail on the scope of work.
Your remodel is done! We will walk through any final items with you and secure final inspections. Now it’s time to enjoy your new space! Of course, we hope you are so thrilled you can’t wait to tell all your friends and neighbors that HERCULES DESIGN BUILD did your remodel!
