At WORKS by JD, our goal is to not only meet but exceed your expectations. We want to wow you with our quality of work, service, and finished product. The key to getting this accomplished is efficiency which requires timely, clear, and open communication from all parties.
The remodeling process can easily get complicated (or slowed down!) because of all of the details of a project, so it’s important to know what you want and create a reasonable timeline of when each step will be done. We want to work with you to create your ideal project, so the better you can communicate your vision for the finished product, the better equipped we will be to make that vision come to life.
Here’s the general timeline for a remodeling project:
Step 1 – A Clean Slate: Obtain all necessary permits; perform required demolition; complete any necessary framing Step 2 – A Good Start: Plumbers and electricians install rough materials Step 3 – Check In: Necessary inspections are scheduled (reliant upon city/town inspection schedule) Step 4 – Build Up: Insulation and drywall installed Step 5 – A Fresh Layer: Plastering completed Step 6 – Get Grounded: Flooring installed Step 7 – Details Matter: Trim and baseboard completed Step 8 – A New Coat: Prepare walls for painting; begin painting Step 9 – Let’s Connect: Plumbing and electrical work completed Step 10 – Final Look: Complete painting; install accessories and miscellaneous hardware Step 11 – That’s a Wrap: Schedule final inspections; perform touch-ups and miscellaneous finish work
While each project is unique and timelines can vary a bit, this list is a good guideline for what major tasks need to happen. Additional goals such as custom shelving or cabinetry, special order fixtures, detailed trim work, and changes to the project scope may change our order of operations.
Every home has its own challenges and character so we like to emphasize this as a general guideline because, especially in older homes, there can be complications such as out-of-level framing, rot, or insufficient structure that must be corrected before installing new finishes.
It is important to us that you are happy through all stages of your project, and we will do our best to keep the communication lines open and keep your project on budget and on schedule. We stand by our 5-year warranty for a reason: we do good work and can’t wait to add you to the list of happy clients.
