What is the typical timeline for a custom home build or high-end remodeling project with Revent Builds?
You can most likely anticipate a timeline of approximately 12 to 18 months. However, this can vary depending on the complexity and size of your project. It will not be less than one year.
Does Revent Builds offer any sustainable or eco-friendly building options for clients interested in environmentally responsible home construction or remodeling?
We ensure that at least 50% of our demolition waste is recycled. Our projects are long-standing and sustainable, utilizing materials such as concrete fiberboard and hardy plank, along with foam insulation for energy efficiency. We employ numerous energy-efficient building techniques and products, ensuring their durability. Depending on a client’s preferences, we can significantly enhance these sustainability measures, incorporating elements such as rainwater harvesting systems and solar panels.
How does Revent Builds handle project budgets and ensure that projects are completed within the agreed-upon financial constraints?
Our estimate and bidding process is meticulously detailed, open, and transparent. Should costs increase, we prefer to say it’s due to our clients’ enthusiasm for our work and want to do more. However, rest assured, you will be thoroughly informed through the use of change orders and clear communication. All our projects are undertaken on a fixed cost basis. The only exceptions to price alterations would be due to additions to the project scope or unforeseen circumstances.
What types of warranties or guarantees does Revent Builds offer on the workmanship and materials used in your projects?
Revent provides a comprehensive one-year warranty that covers all aspects of the build, as well as a two-year warranty on electrical, plumbing, and HVAC systems. Upon a client’s request, we can also facilitate a third-party warranty that guarantees the structure for 10 years.
How does Revent Builds keep clients informed and up-to-date on the progress of their custom home build or high-end remodeling project?
We maintain communication and project updates through our project management software, supplemented by regular, detailed discussions with John, our Project Manager, Superintendents, and administrative staff. This is further enhanced by frequent site visits with clients.
Where do we start in our remodel project?
We begin by understanding your expectations, budget, timeline, and design inspirations. From there, we determine the most suitable approach for your project. Detailed design plans, renderings, and layouts are created next, which determine pricing. Our goal is to minimize assumptions and ensure clarity throughout the process.
Where do you get your building materials?
The choice of materials depends on the specific project, and we work with a wide array of suppliers. We tend to recommend materials that we trust and can guarantee under warranty. However, if you’re interested in more exotic materials, we have the capability to source any material from around the globe.
Kitchen Remodeling FAQs:
How long does a kitchen remodel take?
The timeline can vary from 2 to 6 months, depending on the extent of the remodel. Minor updates require less time, while more substantial modifications, such as removing walls or extensive plumbing work, take longer. For instance, a kitchen remodel can easily extend into a complete renovation of the entire downstairs.
How much does a kitchen remodel cost?
Our projects typically start around $100,000. For high-end work, you could anticipate costs in the mid-$200,000 range. Beyond that, the budget can scale upwards significantly, with the sky being the limit.
What are some questions to consider when remodeling a kitchen?
The initial considerations you should contemplate are: What is your primary use for the space? Is it an intimate family area, or a space for entertaining guests? Are you seeking aesthetics, functionality, or a blend of both in your kitchen? If you’re considering removing a wall, now is the best time to do so. Consider the floor plan – older homes often have large dividing walls. How important is an open floor plan to you? What year was your home built? The kitchen is often the hub of the home’s electrical system, and changes there can lead to extensive adjustments depending on your vision.
