When you decide to remodel your home, regardless of the
number of rooms or size of the project, it can be
intimidating, it can life altering and it can be VERY scary!
But working with Quality Design & Construction will put your
fears to rest.
There’s a reason we named our company Quality Design &
Construction. Simply put, we take pride in what we do. The
workmanship in your home will be of the highest quality. We’ve been building
dreams in the Raleigh area for many years now. The best part about our work is
seeing the smile on your face when you realize the final
result is just what you asked for.
So when you've decided
to remodel, here is what happens next...
- First things first: when you phone our office, we
gather the basic information about your project, then
visit you to survey the property and evaluate the home,
spending between one and two hours.
- Next: Quality Design & Construction will prepare a
preliminary design contract, which not only provides
you with a sketch of your project (dimensions, demolition,
descriptions of updates) but also a general estimate. A
retainer is charged for this service since we’re investing
time designing your project.
- We’ll gather measurements, take digital pictures, and
note potential challenges, all of which are downloaded
into our computer. That information helps us create a
floor plan of your project which you can easily view via
e-mail. Now you have a chance to view, at your
convenience, what will soon be your newly remodeled space.
Scrutinize it. Is this what you want? Is it what we
discussed? Maybe you want to make some changes or have
some questions. Pick up the phone and call us or send an
e-mail message; we want to know that we’re on the right
- It’s time now to meet and review the concept drawings.
You’ll receive a preliminary cost estimate to
ensure both the financial and construction aspects of the
project meet your expectations.
- Once you okay the preliminaries, we meet to review
costs (a firm estimate will be given) and to show you the
construction drawings. You’ll like these! These
three-dimensional drawings show you specific plans for
demolition, framing, electrical work, trim and flooring
and cover all facets of the project. These plans are much
more user-friendly than traditional “blueprints”. At this
meeting, the final contract will also be presented. With
it, you’ll receive a list of the items you need to select
for your new project—including cabinets, countertops,
flooring and more. The contract provides item
allowances based on your budget and a preferred vendor
sheet for guidance. Happy shopping!
- Once the construction agreement is signed,
we’ll apply for the required permitting. Then, our
construction crews meet in a preconstruction meeting.
Plans are reviewed and issues discussed. We think it’s a
good idea for each person that’s going to work on your
project to know just as much as we do about
your expectations and needs.
- We use the highest quality craftsmen in the industry.
We’ve worked with them for years and their standards of
quality match our own. Regardless of which project
component is underway— plumbing, drywall, electric,
masonry or HVAC installation—it will be handled with
precision and accuracy each and every time.
- Once you sign the construction contract, we’ll
review plans and any budgetary concerns once more before
giving our crews the go-ahead. While we can’t promise no
delays (it’s the nature of the business when dealing with
different suppliers, not to mention forces of nature), we
can promise we’ll be there every step of the way, our
project manager keeping you informed, answering questions
and making adjustments as needed. This person also works
with each crew member to avert delays and anticipate
