From initial discussions to presenting the finished product, our carefully considered procedure streamlines the home renovation process and sets a clear course for our partnership.
The final design plan is fluid, so we can make changes or overcome unforeseen challenges accordingly. With each change or challenge, we will loop back through the process to understand how those changes will alter the budget and timeline.
With an understanding of our core values and renovation process, we can make informed decisions about changes to the original plan and overcoming unforeseen challenges together. Once we have your commitment, all aspects of the renovation process are presented in a written contract to make expectations clear and reduce misunderstanding.
The renovation process starts with site visits and open discussions about your needs, concerns, and vision so we can translate that into an initial design plan.
Identify the Renovation Budget
Based on our discussions and initial plan, we will provide a cost estimate for construction, sub-trades, and finishing materials based on your available budget.
Finalize the Renovation Plan
Together, we will fine-tune the budget proposal and design a final project plan with accurate cost estimates.
Create a Renovation Timeline
We will work with you to determine your home renovation project start date, and then establish the end date. Sub-project start and end dates will also be determined.
Renovation Warranties & Protections
All work provided by Craftsmen Contracting Ltd. and its sub-trades are warrantied for two years after the renovation is completed. We stand by our work and will follow up with any concern over workmanship promptly.
Craftsmen Contracting protects you and ourselves by maintaining WorkSafe BC coverage, liability insurance, and licenses.
Regardless of how simple a renovation may seem, they all require careful thought and communication to get it done right, with best installation practices and quality materials.
