1. Dreaming & Planning
We visit you and your home to discuss ideas and budgets, what you like and don’t like about your home, and whether Boardwalk Builders would be a good fit for your needs. While it is critical that we understand you, we feel it is also important that you understand who we are and how we operate. We want you to have clear expectations about the process before, during and after construction.
2. Budgeting & Partner Plan
At our second meeting we will review project objectives and the budget for your renovation or custom home. From there we will decide if we want to move forward together and implement our Partner Plan. The Partner Plan is our way of working together to approach your remodeling project to ensure you'll love the results.
The basis of the Partner Plan is a mutual understanding of project scope and budget range. Also, a small financial commitment must be paid in the form of a retainer and will be applied into your project when we move to the construction phase.
3. Design & Selections
All projects benefit from a thorough development phase, where materials are selected and details are worked out. Whether your project requires the assurance of thoughtful selections, or a more extensive design process, we take the time to work with you and develop the plans and selections while providing ongoing budget feedback. We want you to have clear understanding about the details and costs of your project before we start construction.
4. Finalizing your Plans/Starting Construction
Once design and selections are complete we will present a fixed-price construction agreement, and once signed, we can begin to apply for permits and order your materials. Before we start work we will introduce you to your project leader and review the project on-site with you, including construction schedule and safety/security during construction.
During construction we will update you with regular communications regarding project progress and status. We utilize detailed checklists during each phase of construction to ensure that your project is completed with precision and high quality standards.
As you enter this stage of work, you will continue to develop your relationship with our production manager Jason and his courteous team. It is this team’s responsibility is to meet the building schedule, ensure quality and cost control, coordinate all work done, answer your questions, and address any new ideas you may have. Patty and Jason will continue to remain involved in your project by visiting the site often, attending meetings with you and the lead carpenter, and will be available for any questions you may have during the building or remodeling of your home.
6. Project Completion
At last, your new home or remodel is complete! Prior to your occupancy, our team will walk through your home and answer any questions or concerns you may have. As part of our quality-control process we work with GuildQuality, a firm specializing in third-party customer satisfaction surveys for building professionals.
Our goal is to make the process an enjoyable experience for you. We want you to love the enhancements to your home and share your experiences with others who could benefit from our services. Of course, your questions and recommendations are welcome anytime, and we are always just a phone call /email away.
Now that you understand our process, give us a call to set up a complimentary consultation. (302) 227-5754
