One of the most frequent questions we get asked is “When can you start?” This not an easy question to answer. Whether you work with us on your renovation design or arrive with a complete design and product specifications, Michael DeJong Homes is prepared to execute your renovation project using our proven build process.
Before construction, the client is asked to finalize selections for fixtures and materials, usually with the help of our interior decorator. Trades people visit the site to assess the project scope. Permit applications are made and final design work is completed.
Depending on the project, site preparation can involve interior and exterior work. Exterior work may include driveway protection, landscape trimming/transplanting, tree hoarding, protective barricades and coordination of material locations. Interior work may include duct system filters, plastic scope barricades, floor protection and protection or storage of client possessions.
A timeline is created for the renovation project. Critical path items are noted and discussed. Delays in critical path items may result in a missed deadline.
Given the high degree of customization on our projects, clients may request changes throughout a renovation project. The full implications of every change in terms of completion date and budget are discussed and agreed upon with the client. If the client accepts these implications, the change takes effect immediately and all trades people are notified.
Clear, frequent communications help keep our build process on schedule and on budget. We are committed to making each renovation project a positive experience.
