Timing Your Remodeling Project

Construction Is Just a Small Step in the Process

As the holidays approach, we often receive an influx of inquiries with people asking, “Can you get my remodeling project done before Christmas?”

Our reaction? "Absolutely! Yes! It’s early November 2019, and we can guarantee you’ll be done by December of 2020!”

All joking aside, remodeling timelines are often confusing. While remodeling itself might only take 4-12 weeks, few people realize how much goes into the design, bidding and planning process before construction even starts. Today, we’ve compiled a simple step by step pre-construction, construction, and post-construction timeline to truly help you understand just what to expect throughout the remodeling process!

  • Phone Consultation

    When you contact our office, we like to start with an initial phone call to learn more about you and your project needs. It helps us share a bit about our process and give you a quick introduction to COR Improvements.

  • Face-to-Face Consultation

    Our face-to-face consultation typically is scheduled within a week and is focused on finding your WHY? Do you have a new child on the way? Are you planning to stay in your home as you age? Do you just want to make your family home feel new again? Focusing on the WHY, our initial consultation process is all about getting to know you, understanding your needs, and providing a ballpark budget to kick off our planning process.

  • Email Consultation, Design & Plan Agreement

    To verify and reiterate what we heard during the face-to-face process, we provide a thorough email recap along with our Design & Plan agreement – the next step in moving your project forward!

  • Setup in CoConstruct

    As soon as we begin our work together, we set up your project in our cloud-based system called CoConstruct. It’s your central location for plans, schedules, materials, bids photos, communications, and more throughout the life of your relationship with COR Improvements.

  • Design & Plan

    Our Design and Plan agreement allows us to start the design process, creating initial drawings, layouts, and plans for your future renovation project. Simple projects like a small bathroom remodel may take only a few weeks to design, while an addition or whole house remodel may take longer.

  • Material Selections

    Once we know you like the overall layout and concept for your remodeling project, it’s time to go shopping! Connecting you to our network of suppliers, you work with our sales designer to select the fixtures and finishes for your home. We have strong relationships with several suppliers and invite you to visit their showrooms to envision your new COR Improvements space coming to life! In fact, you can fast-track your remodel if you’ve already worked with one of these partners on a design for your new home!
