Initial Consultation with GMH

We are so happy you found us and would like to meet Greg or Dane to discuss your possible future remodel.  Whether a basement remodel, kitchen remodel, or bathroom remodel we are excited to be a part of your journey. In person or by a virtual meeting, the initial consultation with you allows us to identify the scope of the job so we are all on the same page. So how should you, as the homeowner, prepare for this meeting? Here are just a few suggestions:

Clearly identify specific rooms to be remodeled with as much detail as possible. Include the things you NEED to have done and the things that you MIGHT like to have.  This is a vital starting point to help determine cost and drawing plans.

Gather lots of ideas!  Look in magazines, go on Pinterest, Instagram or attend trade shows. It is extremely helpful to show us what you would like so we can discuss if it’s doable and what it might cost.

And speaking of cost – be prepared to discuss the budget.  When you have an idea what it is, we can then offer suggestions to help you be able to reach your vision within your budget. The cost of a remodel can depend on a number of factors, and we are prepared to discuss how much it will realistically cost.

What questions do you have for us? Even before our meeting you might have a ton of questions. Keep a running list and add to it when new one arises so as not to forget!  Some of them might be: What will be the best way to stay in contact? Who will oversee the project daily? Are you licensed and insured?

After this initial consultation we will take about 2 – 3 weeks to prepare an estimate and possible design plans for your project.  We know hiring and entrusting your home to us is a big deal and its one that we seriously. So, when we all do our part to prepare and have open communication from the start it will help ensure you get a remodel that you love.
