Planning before the Estimate

PLANNING BEFORE THE ESTIMATE

We understand that before we even arrive to the estimate, you already have an idea and image in your mind of how your project will go.  Because we want to share in that vision and make those ideas a reality, we encourage your input from the beginning.  We have found the best way to do that is through planning and communication on both sides. So to help guide us through the process, here are a few tips you might find helpful before we come out to give you the estimate:
  1. Visit some websites.  We have provided links from our site to some of the leading manufacturers in the industry.
  2. Study your neighborhood.  Chances are that other homes in the area will be of similar design to yours.  What do you like and dislike about the homes around you?
  3. Start to develop your budget.  You don’t have to get specific right now, but know what you have to work with.  Then list as many reasons as you can for doing the project in order of importance to you.  Later this will help you cut out any unnecessary items if you start to approach your limits.
  4. Develop a list of questions and concerns.  It’s your project.  If you have rules, now is a good time to discuss them.
  5. Call. If you have questions before the appointment, ask them.
  6. When it comes time for the estimate, get a blank pad of paper and a pencil and let’s get planning.
