Our Process

KC’s 3-Step Design and Quoting Process

 

Home remodeling can be a hectic task. It involves heavy decision-making, including defining a budget, choosing a contractor, and making the selections to fit your desired outcome. Homeowners need someone they can trust to ease them through this overwhelming process.

Here at KC’s Improvement, we provide services to make the entire remodeling process easy and stress-free. We have a 3-step quoting system to guide you from idea stage to design stage, where you get to choose your selections. We’ll finish with a detailed proposal and a firm price.

During this time we gather information about your desired outcome for the project. You can send us existing pictures of your home, discuss your likes and dislikes, and let us know your expectations from KC’s Improvement.

You’ll learn more about the services we provide here at KC’s, and we’ll address any initial concerns and questions you may have regarding your project.

After that, we’ll provide a “guesstimated” cost for your project investment. The guesstimate will be based on similar projects that we at KC’s have completed while serving more than 35 years in the industry.

If the guesstimate is within your budget range, we can proceed to scheduling an in-home consultation, which is step 2 of our 3-step quoting system.

KC’s will make an on-site visit to take pictures of your home, record measurements of the project area, and collect any supporting documents that you may have such as drawings, sketches, and example pictures.

This consultation will help us firm up our initial guesstimate to prepare a firm quote. We will make adjustments as necessary to make sure that the actual price does not exceed 20% of the guesstimate, unless additional project requests are made during this meeting.

We will also educate you about the entire remodeling process. We’ll guide you through the process of product and supplier selections and answer any questions you have regarding your project.

Step 3 — Design and Estimate Phase
Time commitment — 1-2 hours
Cost — Approximately 5-7%  of project guesstimate with $150 minimum (plus an additional 2% if our architect has to create preliminary CAD drawings).

We will collect a non-refundable retainer check at the end of the step 2 consultation to begin with design services. If you choose KC’s as your contractor, half of the design and estimate fee goes to the overall project cost.

At this point, we’ll bring all of the collected project information to a meeting with our designers, architects, suppliers, in-house team, and trade partners. At the end of this meeting we’ll create a very detailed, written, and guaranteed quote.

We will schedule a return visit to your home or business so we can review all the details and information in person.

This 1-2 week period may require you to visit some of our preferred suppliers to make selection decisions. You may also be visited by trade partners to gather additional information to complete their phase of the work.

Step 3 may potentially take longer for big projects, like large additions or custom home builds, as we go back and forth with our design team and suppliers.

At the end of Step 3, our goal is to be as thorough and detailed as possible, so that you have all the information required to make a hiring decision and move your project forward.

Begin!
