Our unique design build process ensures performance at the highest levels of integrity, business ethics, and outstanding results. Every aspect of our relationship with you is carefully attended to, from our first meeting until the last day of a project, and beyond. Here’s a step-by-step look at how we will work together…
1. Your First Design Meeting
At your first home appointment with Cullum Renovations, we will actively listen as we discuss your overall wants and needs for your project. We will evaluate your existing environment and how to incorporate new design and space. We ask for your ideas, give design suggestions, and determine what is most important in the way you will use the new space. Together, we review the planning and building processes and how they are structured to ensure your project’s success. We also review the overall project budget so that we can design within that budget.
2. Property Review
To begin the design process, we will measure the existing structure and property conditions. We will use this information to produce designs and plans for your approval. This includes a detailed description of each step of the construction process, from concrete to framing to electrical. We review this with you to assure that all constructions details are included in these documents.
3. Design and Material Selection
This is when the fun begins! At this point we finalize the details, such as materials and appliance choices. Our designer will work with you one-on-one to help you with selections: from countertop colors to tile backsplash patterns to the design of fixtures and cabinetry handles. Working closely with our designer, you can rest assured that your selections are expertly coordinated to enhance your space and communicate your unique taste. Specifications and details for all choices are gathered in a comprehensive job site plan.
4. Construction Process
With plans and permits resolved and materials selected, your project construction will begin. Our design consultant and superintendent will review the entire project with you to ensure that any unanswered questions are addressed. We will meet you on the job site to review the entire scope of work, walk through the project and discuss how the job will be built. At this time, specific details are discussed, such as where materials can be stored, how your home will be protected from dust, and how to safeguard your pets during the build. Our project superintendent will provide a time frame and they will always be available to discuss your project questions or concerns. Our goal is to complete work on a daily basis in order to move the project along quickly to completion.
5. Project Completion
Prior to completion, our project superintendent will walk through the project with you and record any small items or details that need to be altered to ensure you are 100% satisfied with your project. When your project is complete, you will receive detailed information about warranted products and services. We value your feedback so that we can continue to identify ways to make our remodeling process streamlined, predictable and enjoyable.
