How We Work
Floor Plan Phase
Renderings vs Actual
Once Pre-Construction is complete, we can move into the Construction Phase and start our demolition/deconstruction. As we work, we send weekly project reports which include details on the work completed, milestones, upcoming milestones, labour hour reports, receipts, job photos, and the weekly invoice. We bill flat hourly rates for our design, project management, and field teams, and we mark up materials and subcontractors at a fixed rate. Our pricing is completely transparent – you see receipts, estimates/invoices from subcontractors, labor timesheets, and mark ups.
Our billing structure means that when we come in ahead of budget, you save money. We don’t take a dollar more than we earn, and we pass all of our savings on directly to our clients. Our time-and-materials approach also means that you maintain flexibility in your project. Should you decide that you want to make a change during the Construction Phase, we won’t hit you with a bunch of paperwork and change orders. We simply work with you to understand the impact of the changes that you want, ensure that they are feasible, and then execute them painlessly, so you can get back to your life and we can keep your project rolling.,
A Note on Home Remodeling Investment
No doubt about it, a home renovation is a major investment. At Renovate we want to ensure that you are spending money wisely to get a return on your investment – and we are here to make sure that what you do makes sense. That is why we work with an experienced realtor, Mel Parsons of Parsons Team Seattle, to help our clients decide how much to invest. When we are building out your work scope, we can bring in Mel to assess the real estate market value of your remodel. If you need to scale down the scope from an investment standpoint, we will do that happily.
