Incredible Renovations and Remax/360 Open House Recap

IncredibleRenovations hosted an open house with Re/Max 360 on November 17th and it turned out great. We invited Thai Klam and his team of realtors to visit our “Incredible” office so we could show them the samples we offer to our clients during their options appointment. Re/Max 360 is of the fastest Re/Max franchises in the country who has sent us clients in the past and were very pleased with the results: option generation and on time Quality construction.   We were also able to squeeze in the Incredible Renovations remodel process so they could get a feel for what we’re doing with our clients.

After having Carrabas Pasta and salad for lunch we started the show.

We were able to explain the initial consult and walk thru which basically is where we sit down and listen to what our clients remodel / addition needs are. Incredible Renovations takes the time to learn about the client’s lifestyle along with the client investment range and situation and from there, start to create the perfect design for that client.

Part of envisioning the design is finding out what the client’s taste are so we can bring that out in the design. Here is the rundown. Once we go forward with a client, step one, we set an options appointment so they can pick out cabinets, faucets, sinks, granite countertops, wood flooring, tile flooring, or carpet flooring, all depending on what part of the home we’re remodeling.

After discussing the initial consult and design process, we showed Re/Max 360 some sample 3D virtual walk thrus and project estimates. This is part of the second step in our process. We revealed some before and after images of some past projects as well as 3D virtual tours compared to completed projects. All and all, Re/Max 360 was impressed with the realistic views that our Chief Architect Software was able to produce.

We wrapped up the open house discussing the Proposal Process which includes contract acceptance and permit acquisition. This is the third step in our process which may not be as fun as the first two steps but it is a virtually painless process since we do a majority of the work. Thanks Re/Max 360 for taking the time to see what Incredible Renovations can do for our clients.

Thinking of Remodeling Your Bathroom

So you’re thinking of remodeling your bathroom. Let Incredible Renovations give you some advice on how to start. There are quite a few things to think of when considering a bathroom remodel such as, your investment range, materials to use, will I expand the size, what design do I want, or possibly relocating the entire bathroom to another location entirely. While we can walk you through the entire process, we can give you some pointers when you do decide to make the leap into remodeling that old bathroom.

What’s your investment range?

You want to be realistic to what you can afford. You don’t want to be half way through the bathroom remodel and have to stop because you’ve run out of money. You can start by pricing the parts of the bathroom you are going to replace. Possible items to consider during your bathroom remodel are flooring, fixtures, sinks, the toilet, countertops, bathtub and / or shower, the possible addition of a separate shower, room expansion, or even relocation. Needless to say, you should plan your investment range wisely before starting your bathroom remodel.

What type of design do you want?

There is a point of becoming reckless in terms of design and style because it can jeopardize your bathroom remodel. Prior to deciding on design and style, you should conduct a very thorough survey and analysis of the room. If it’s within your investment range you should consider an interior decorator to guide you through the design, layout, and style. You need to choose designs that suit your personality or you could end up with a bathroom that doesn’t appeal to you. Once you have planned everything, you can get started on the job at hand.

What types of building products should you use?

There are so many brands and prices to consider when buying materials for your remodel. What we can say is that you will probably get what you pay for when it comes to building materials. You should really do your research because a remodel isn’t going to be something you can redo if you don’t like it the first time around. You will want your investment range to go as far as possible and you will want the resulting bathroom remodel to last many years.

There are many more items to factor into your bathroom remodel that we’ve not mentioned here but this will help you get started. We can also tell you how Incredible Renovations process goes so that it may be a helpful as well.

Here is a solution to take the headache out of a bathroom remodel.

When Incredible Renovations starts a bathroom remodel, we start by creating a design tailored to our customer’s taste and investment range. Our process is guaranteed on time and on budget through four easy steps. First we have the initial consultation and walk-through. Next, we give the design options, 3d virtual walk-through, and the estimate. Then there is the proposal, contract acceptance, and permit acquisition. Fourthly, construction and completion of the bathroom remodel.
