Our Process

From our first conversation, we are focused on learning about your desires, needs and lifestyle. The objective is to ensure your needs are addressed in the overall project and budget.

Our team will guide you through the development of a clear scope of work, detailed plans and all-inclusive budget. Time spent in the planning and budget phases will pay off in efficient production and a better experience for you!

Whether you are ready to remodel a room, build an addition, remodel your kitchen or bathroom, create an outdoor living space, or build a media room, you’ll see that we will make the decisions a pleasure and the process worry-free, so you can sit back, relax and watch your vision take shape.

We look forward to meeting you soon!

A PROCESS FOR SUCCESS!

What you can expect when you contact us…

  1. Short interview via email or phone to make sure your project is a good fit for both of us.
  2. Complimentary onsite visit with all decision makers. These meetings are typically 1-1 ½ hours depending on the size of you project. Our appointments are scheduled during regular business hours Monday-Friday 7:30AM-4:00PM

What happens at the complimentary meeting…?

  • Discuss why you want to renovate and your expectations for the project.
  • Review your vision for the spaces you want remodeled.
  • Discuss schedule availability and needs for completion for you and for us.
  • nlsTalk about the investment you are comfortable putting into your home. (It’s a good idea to have talked about budget before our meeting) We know that most people don’t know what remodeling costs. We do know that everyone has a budget number that they are willing to spend. Being upfront about the budget helps us help you stay within that budget.
  • We will answer any of your questions regarding the project, the process and our company.
  • We will discuss a ballpark estimate that is based on our preliminary discussions. This is a broad brush number and is intended to determine if this is the direction you are interested in going. We will move to the next step when you are ready to proceed.
  1. Project retainer to New Leaf for your Comprehensive Project Evaluation (CPE). (Pricing varies depending on size and scope of project) Your retainer goes toward the following:
  • Securing a tentative production schedule (final schedule is determined after all the tasks below have been completed)
  • Design schedule to assist in keeping everyone on track for the production schedule.
  • Drawings/Design as needed for your particular project
  • Develop your scope of work in detail
  • Assist you with material selection if needed
  • Sub-contractor site visits and pricing based on your actual scope of work.
  • Presentation of your project cost in a fixed price contract. Presented as lump sum contract with detailed scope of work.
  • The project retainer is credited toward the project costs when you sign our contract within 30 days of presentation.* (*excluding architectural and engineering fees, if included)

Once all of the above is completed, we can proceed to the permit and construction phases of the project.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
