What Can You Expect?
Here at PDR, we hold ourselves to the highest standards in the industry. We believe the process of design-build should be exciting and fun! We have put together a team of the area’s top designers and construction professionals. We love remodeling here at PDR. It is the passion that drives us and sets us apart from other companies here in the Sarasota, Bradenton, Lakewood, Siesta Key, and Longboat Key Area. It is the concierge service that we offer from the conception to the completion of a project that we feel is a top priority to enhance the remodeling experience.
New bathroom design. This client is doing a 5 room Remodel in Lakewood Ranch Florida and wanted to start with the master bath. We will be removing the jetted tub, blocking the window, and adding a double sink vanity as well as a make-up area. The shower will be gutted to the studs and finished with large format porcelain tile and small format mosaic tile on the floor. Also, frameless glass and niches will accent this shower nicely.
At the consultation, we will discuss multiple points of the project.
- Design Direction
- Time Frames
- Wants and Needs
- Our Processes
These are key questions that a design consultant will need to determine how to best approach the project. We find that some clients need direction when it comes to some of these questions. This is when we can help educate you and start the path to the design phase.
Design & Product Selection Process
This is where the fun begins! We are using the newest and best methods to provide a real design experience. 2020 Design software will be used to produce high quality 3D colored renderings of the project. Elevation, floor plans, and permit drawings will show all the details of your project, from electrical layouts to appliance placement. We find that the details on the front end help all parties to truly understand what will take place and where things will be. Product selections will be done during this process by visiting our beautiful showroom as well as utilizing local vendors to find the perfect tiles, stone, fixtures, and appliances. While this may seem overwhelming, our design staff will be there to educate you on products as well as help you make selections that will be perfect for your space.
Explanation of Scope and Contract
A detailed scope of work will be typed up as to what we are doing during the construction phase. This will include detailed drawings, product placement, plumbing, and electrical maps as well as a very clear picture of what PDR will be doing. Line by line these specs and instructions will be spelled out as to eliminate questions about what is and is not being done during your remodel.
The contract will be an extension of the detailed scope of work. Your final cost and payment breakdown will be noted and signed off on.
Warranty and waivers will be also signed, as well as the projects selection sheets.
We are heavy on the details up to this point so that all vendors and installers are clear on what will be done during construction. All the information PDR has gathered from day one will be reviewed and put into production. Permitted projects will be started and scheduled after the permit has been issued. We have established incredible relationships with all the county and city officials. This process can take weeks (4-6) on average. We will have all your selections and products onsite here at PDR prior to the start of construction. A meeting will be scheduled for our team of installers, Project manager, and Designers prior to the start of construction to gather any last details and to set an expectation on what the client can expect. You may be asked to empty cabinets and remove pictures or wall paintings that could be damaged during construction.
Once all is here and ready, we will place protection on floors and furniture as needed. The process of demolition and construction can be messy. We will do everything we can as to not disrupt your daily activities. There may be gaps in your installation for things such as for permit inspections and glass and stone templating. We understand that this can be unpleasant and we will do all we can to limit the disruption and keep the project on schedule. You will be assigned a Project manager who will answer questions and update you on a day to day activities. We want you to trust the process and PDR to complete the project in a timely manner and with a high-quality finished project. Upon completion, your new space will be cleaned and “move in ready”.
We will do a final walk-through and address any minor punch-out items to be completed. PDR wants you to enjoy this process and the experience of hiring a Licensed Contractor. We find that during these processes the relationship builds between client and contractor and turns into lasting friendships.
