We’ve noticed that Brooklyn home renovations contractors often come up with a check list before attempting a major gut renovation. We interviewed George Picasso, a typical Bay Ridge, Brooklyn remodeling contractor and asked him about his typical renovation check list. Mr Picasso discussed his routine and why most remodeling contractors operate in such a fashion. According to Mr. Picasso these steps help insure a successful gut renovation.
1. The first meeting. Here the client meets with the renovation contractor at the address of the project and exchanges basic information such as references, licenses and insurance coverage. This is a good time to share photos and examples of previous work.
2. Gathering pertinent information. This is also the stage where the client shares his goals, challenges and budget details with the contractor. The contractor should be listening at this point as well as taking notes and asking questions.
3. The second meeting with solutions. The scope of the work is a form that will be filled out and approved by the client at this meeting.Here the parties come to an agreement on the budget and timeline, which is essentially the starting and finishing date.
4. Agreements. Once the work is detailed and described a written agreement can be signed.
5.Construction begins. This is the time for any necessary demolition and the start of all the small steps that make up total project. Your contractor will usually have a log book where he keeps a daily record of pertinent happenings during the day.
6.The construction is complete. This is the time for the final meeting where the warranty is signed and the final payment is collected.
Sheldon T of Brooklyn, a client of Mr Picasso’s, explained the results he saw when following an organized six step process with Mr. Picasso.”George and his team just completed a total gut renovation of our basement, first floor bathroom as well as a staircase replacement on the main/upper floor. The end product looks amazing and we are extremely satisfied with the quality of the work. George is very customer oriented and aims to ensure his client is totally satisfied – he delivered on everything we agreed upon, including the five-week timeline. He has a well-oiled machine and the members of his team are true professionals – highly skilled, flexible, detail-oriented and friendly. I would highly recommend George and his team – they are the Real Deal and will deliver, you will not be disappointed.”
According to Mr. Picasso, any Brooklyn contractor who follows these steps with his clients increases his chances of having a successful operation and happy clients.
