Ready to update your house into the home of your dreams? If you’ve been looking for the right interior home remodeling contractor team to help spruce up your space, then our Lakeside Renovation and Design team wants to talk with you.
We believe that home renovations don’t have to be stressful and that the end result should be something you are proud of and feel is worth the investment you are making, which is why our team of designers and craftsmen works with you through the home renovation process— to get it exactly right.
It’s time to take your home’s interior to the next level with immaculate design and quality construction.
Working with an In-House Construction and Design Team
At Lakeside, we want your renovation experience to be an exciting one, not a time that fills you with anxiety or frustration. And to make that a possibility, we staff an in-house design team to bring you both the construction and design all in one place.
Most contractors require that you work with outside architects or designers to create the plans that they then build, but this can lead to a variety of problems. What if an unexpected problem arises during your construction phase? Well, then you as the homeowner will have to go back to your designer, wait on the changes, and then present them to your contractor. Staffing an in-house design team keeps you from playing middleman.
Here are some ways a design-build team benefits your renovation:
By eliminating the need for a middleman, the design team can work directly with the construction team to solve problems in real time, keeping your renovation on track.
A design-build team can work together to find the most cost-effective solutions to your design and any problems that may arise during the process. And if problems do arise, you do not have to pay your designer for changes, the in-house design team will work with the contractor to fix the issue.
Increases quality of work
Rather than having two separate entities working on the same project, a design team and construction team that are a part of the same interior remodeling company means that both entities are working toward the same goal, giving you more consistent and cohesive work.
The Lakeside Renovation Process
Our design process is intended to make your renovation as stress-free as possible while bringing about the interior home renovation you’ve been dreaming of. Here’s an idea of how our renovations are structured.
Step 1: Design Consultation
Our home renovation process begins with a call from you. We set up a meeting, and during our design consultation, we will inquire about the scope of your project. We then send someone out to acquire measurements of your space. This is our chance to listen and get the initial idea of where you want to see your home at the end of this process and what kind of budget you are working with.
Step 2: Follow-up Appointment
We work to create a preliminary design and overall plan with a budget estimate for the previously discussed renovation. We then meet with you to discuss the plans. This is the step where changes are discussed in accordance with your needs and wants, and our team takes that information and adjusts the design and plan as needed.
Step 3: Selection Process
If after our preliminary discussions and meetings, you choose to move forward with our team, we then begin the design selections. Our team works with you to select the materials for the renovation. This step aids in the preparation for construction and helps the design team to begin bringing together the overall style for the design.
Step 4: Construction Preparation
During this same time, our team begins pulling the proper permits for your project to save you the hassle and headache of having to obtain permits yourself. We begin preparing for the job to start, ensuring we have the proper materials and a clear picture of what the renovation should entail.
Step 5: Construction Begins
Finally, our design team is able to hand off the plans for your home renovation to our construction team. However, that does not mean our design team is completed with your project. While our expert craftsmen provide quality craftsmanship to the foundation and design of your project, our design team can work in tandem with them to provide support and create solutions to any unexpected issues that may arise (which all renovations have).
We keep open communication throughout the entire renovation process so that you always have a say in what occurs during your remodel.
How to Make the Process Run As Smoothly As Possible
While we strive to be the helping hand that makes your renovation a stress-free success, you can make your renovation run even smoother by:
- Know your overall budget for the project before the initial meeting, and know where your finances for the project are coming from, whether that be a home renovation loan, cash, etc.
- Know what you desire from your renovation, both in ideas of style and function.
- Be prepared to clearly communicate those desires with your renovation experts.
- Stay open to other ideas. A professional interior home remodeling contractor will bring an understanding of functional design and construction to your goals.
- An Interior Home Remodeling Contractor That’s All About You!
Your home renovation should fulfill your desires, not someone else’s ideas. At Lakeside Renovation and Design, our goal is to pair our expertise of over 20 years of renovation experience with your goals to create a result that lasts, functions, and astounds.
