Before any remodeling project begins we have found it invaluable to begin with a pre-construction meeting. We want our clients to understand the remodeling process both good and bad, so that surprises are minimized and ground rules for professionalism are established. During this meeting the project manager goes over the anticipated project schedule, where tools are to be stored and cleaned, and where construction debris is to be stored if applicable and much more.
Another goal of the meeting is to air out any possible differences in expectations. The last thing a reputable contractor wants to do is to misrepresent what is to be expected. The more checks and balances we can put in place to verbalize expectations on both sides the better the outcome and satisfaction for all.
