An appointment will be made to visit your home to discuss the project with you. It is important to have all decision makers on the project at this initial consultation. At this meeting, we will answer your questions, discuss your vision for the job, and offer our expertise. We will take measurements and detailed notes during this appointment so that we can be accurate in our proposal.
You can expect an initial proposal to be sent via email to you 2-3 weeks after your initial consultation. This proposal will be a simple, budgetary document so you can see where you can expect your project to be financially. You can let us know any questions or adjustments that need to be made to the proposal. Then, once a budgetary number is agreed upon, we will move to the estimate. Should your project require extensive design work to be done, our Design Agreement will be discussed at this time.
With our Design Agreement, you will work together with our on staff designer to customize a plan to fit your needs and desires for your project. We can design your home or large remodel in 3-D as well as colored renderings, allowing you to see your home or project in real color before the work begins. Every project we complete at Bartow Builders is created specifically for the customer so this plan will be unique to you!
We will work together to create a comprehensive estimate including specific selections and other details for your project. The estimate you receive will list specifically what you can expect to occur during your project, the tasks Bartow Builders will complete, the materials we intend to use, and the selections that you have chosen or allowances for those selections. This is the document on which we will base our contract.
Once the estimate has been agreed upon, a contract will be signed that includes a start and completion date, detailed scope of work, and payment schedule. Down payment will be collected at the time of the contract signing to secure your spot in our schedule.
Throughout your project, you will have weekly in-person meetings and continuous communications with our Project Manager to discuss scheduling and address any of your questions or concerns. You will be given access to our Project Management System, BuilderTrend, to approve your selections, to see photos of the work as it is being done, and to see the schedule of your project. This system allows us to have great communication with you, our staff, and our trade partners all in one place.
At the end of the project, you will have a walk-through to address any final details that need to be taken care of before the project is deemed complete and final payment is collected.
We are proud of the work we do and stand by our product! We warranty the product for 1 year from the completion date.
