RENOVATION FAQS

Renovation  FAQs

 

How do I get a project started with A to Z renovation?

It all starts with a Free Design Consultation, which can be registered for by filling out the form.

 

Who will manage my project? Will they be available to answer my questions? Will they be on the job site regularly?

To ensure it is properly managed, we assign a Project Manager to every project we work on. The Project Manager is an  A to Z renovation employee who is responsible for every phase of your remodeling project  once the Remodeling Consultant completes the design, layout and has ordered your materials. Our Project Managers personally meet with all the traders’ people since knowing them, who will be working in your home. All work done by our traders’ people during construction are managed and inspected constantly by the Project Manager. He will remain present either everyday for part of the day while the project is ongoing or is in contact with the traders’ people to insure the project  is running smoothly. At all the time The Project Manager is available to you through email or by phone call.

 

I need to stay within a budget for my project. Can A to Z renovation work within that budget and help me maintain it?

It may be so. It depends on your budget. During your Free Design Consultation the Remodeling Consultant may be able to tell you if we can work within your budget, and whether your budgetary expectations are reasonable or not. We will keep to the price we have quoted once we set your budget and prepare a labor proposal. As because our team has the knowledge about the products you need, we will be able to show you materials that should keep you within your budget.

How do I know if I need an architect?

As a simple thumb rule, if you are adding or removing any walls inside or outside of the structure, an architect will be needed to prepare drawings.  We can provide all the design services you need in-house , but if and when a licensed architect needs to sign off, we will use one of the architects in our network. That depends on whether you need a permit from your local building department, or if you live in an apartment building – whether the building management requires that the plans be prepared by a licensed architect.

 

Once I sign a contract, how long will it take to begin work?

After an agreement is finalized, we can start the design process usually within a day or two. The design process and material selection may take some time, so the sooner we start, the better it is for you.

 

Who will take care of securing permits?

We will assist you in the process. The ultimate responsibility lies on you to pay for the permits and all related fees, but we can help you by preparing the paperwork required and guide you through the rest. Building permits require an architect’s drawings, various plans, and other documentation. An expediter is supposed to submit all of these items. On your behalf we can hire these professionals and oversee the process, or if your prefer you may do it on your own.

 

How can I prepare my home for the project?

It will depend upon the scope of work. Your Remodeling Consultant will instruct you as to what exact steps you need to take. But generally speaking, you will want to clear out area being worked on of all your personal belongings that can be removed. Although, we cover the surrounding areas we work on, you have to protect your furniture from dust with plastic sheets.

 

Can I live in my home during renovation?

The entire thing depends on the scope of the project and frankly speaking, your tolerance for inconveniences. You will be inconvenienced if you live on-site during renovation. We recommend that people should make alternate living arrangements during the main construction. This is because you will see dust, debris, workers going in and out, hearing loud noises, and see people ripping apart what is probably your most prized possession. It is also possible that you may be without certain comforts like bathroom facilities for part of the time. This seems to be quite disturbing to most people.

 

Can I leave my belongings in my home during the renovation?

Yes of course, but we recommend that you remove everything possible – especially your most important possessions. Although we take extreme precautions to protect your belongings but dust flies everywhere during construction. Since must of it is microscopic, no matter what we do to protect them, your belongings will get dust particles on and in them.

 

What measures will be taken to protect my home from dust and debris that result from construction?

We cover floors with either rosin paper or Masonite, depending on the circumstances and we block off the areas surrounding the construction area with heavy gauge plastic sheets. We also cover furniture in the surrounding area for protecting it as much as possible.
