Terms like ‘remodeling’ and ‘renovation’ are common and often used interchangeably to describe the process of updating the overall look and feel of a home. On the other hand, design/build is a term that is not as well known. And there is a good reason for this–design/build goes beyond what is expected from a traditional approach to remodeling or construction. One of the area’s premier home remodelers, Highland Design + Build, shares the benefits that design/build has over standard remodels and renovations.
What Exactly is Design/Build?
As we have mentioned, design/build is more than just project planning and completion. It describes the method of a single company managing the entire process of the home upgrade. From the planning stage to the final walkthrough, only one company will bear sole responsibility for both the design and construction of the project. You should consider a design/build remodel because:
It allows you better control on costs. Customization is a huge aspect in design/build remodeling. Instead of a contractor who cuts corners or overspends during the construction, you’ll be working with interior remodelers who will create a design plan that is tailored for your budget. Because a design/build firm will manage all the workers in-site, monitoring the actual costs becomes easier.
The quality of the work will be consistent. The results of a traditional remodeling approach are sometimes a hit or miss. Design/build, however, eliminates that risk. Since you will only be working with a single company throughout the project, you are sure the workmanship will be consistent across the board.
It ensures clearer and more effective communication. Working with a design/build firm means you will not be dealing with different people for different aspects of the project. This helps reduce the potential of miscommunication, which often leads to errors and unnecessary delays. Because of this, you are sure the project will remain on track, allowing for timely completion.
