At RenoVista Construction, we pride ourselves on transparency and ensuring our clients are well-informed. We’ve noticed a pattern in the questions we receive, and to make things easier for you, we’ve compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions and their answers. Let’s dive in!
1. What services does RenoVista Construction offer?
RenoVista Construction specializes in a variety of home improvement and construction services. Our offerings include:
- Home additions
- Design-build projects
The design-build approach is unique to our industry. It involves pre-planning the project with our clients and overseeing it until completion. Contrary to popular belief, most builds don’t require an architect. Our license covers the majority of design-build projects.
2. How can I get a quote from RenoVista?
The process is straightforward:
- Start with our Discovery call. We have videos explaining this process in detail.
- Send us a video and fill out our contact form.
- We’ll discuss potential costs over the phone.
- If you’re on board with the estimated costs, we’ll schedule an in-person consultation.
- During the consultation, we’ll develop a clear scope of work, provide a price proposal, and use our state-of-the-art technology to scan your space. This helps kickstart the design work.
3. How far in advance do I need to book?
On average, we are booked about 3 months in advance. This timeline has been consistent over the past few years. However, depending on demand, it could range from 2 to 5 months.
4. What are the payment options and structure?
We accept standard payment methods, including credit cards. Interestingly, about 90% of our clients prefer making payments online through our Builder Trend portal.
Our payment structure is milestone-based. As we reach each milestone in the project, an invoice is generated. Typically, an average remodel involves 8 to 10 payments.
5. Do I need a construction permit for my project?
While 90% of our jobs require a construction permit, there are exceptions. For instance, simple tasks like flooring, painting, or minor carpentry don’t need a permit. For major remodels, permits are essential. We recommend letting us handle the permit filing using our license, ensuring the liability rests with us.
6. Any advice for someone considering a major remodel?
Planning is crucial. On average, our clients spend about 6 weeks selecting finishes, checking quantities, and ensuring everything aligns with their vision. If a contractor is available immediately for a significant remodel, it might indicate insufficient planning time.
7. What is RenoVista’s business model?
We stick to our strengths: working with wood, carpentry, light frame construction, trim work, and cabinetry installation. For specialized tasks requiring licenses, like plumbing or electrical work, we collaborate with trusted subcontractors. This approach ensures efficiency and top-notch quality.
8. Who supplies the materials for the projects?
In most cases, we provide the materials, including hidden components and visible elements like fixtures and fittings. For specific items, such as bathroom fixtures, we set a budget based on typical client expenditures, ensuring you have a clear understanding of the project’s total cost.
