After inquiring about a project, you can expect to hear back from us in a couple of days. During our initial phone call you will have the opportunity to share your ideas. We will then set up a time to meet in person. Depending on the size and scope of the job, the initial consultation will be a time for us to view your project and listen to your intentions. For smaller projects such as bathrooms, we will take measurements, pictures, and notes so we can start on the process of writing a proposal. On larger projects , the first meeting is a time for you to present your vision and budget to Seydel Group. (Usually about an hour) We want to make sure your timeline aligns with ours. We understand that sharing a budget is a difficult notion for many clients. Every renovation project has its own special circumstances and there is no ‘price sheet’ for the work. Communicating a budget will save time and money for everyone.
Shortly after our initial meeting you will be sent an email with a summary and estimated cost range for your project. For smaller projects that do not require designs or drawings, you can expect a finalized proposal in a few weeks. This type of project will then move forward to the construction phase. Upon deciding to move forward on a larger project, we will schedule a time to return with our architect to develop the project further. Post meeting, you will be sent a design and project development contract. If the contract is accepted, we will move to the pre-construction phase. (Please note that design and development contracts are refundable on signed construction contracts.)
