Frequently Asked Questions


Evaluate your home for design problems and then work on solutions. Start by deciding what you want to attain with a remodel, including which areas of the house require the most work. First and foremost, the fundamentals! If your foundation, roof, windows, plumbing, and heating/air need repair, you must invest in them. Then, prioritize your design update list because updated kitchens and baths provide the best return on investment. We recommend that homeowners prioritize these rooms for remodelling if they need to be more appealing or updated.

Depending on the project, home remodelling can be done all year. Interior space renovation or remodelling can be completed at any time of year, though some aspects of projects may be weather dependent. For example, foundation or footing work should be done when temperatures are above freezing when building a home addition. During your initial visit, we can answer any query you may have about the timelines of your project.

Renovation is an investment for both yourself and your property. Create project budgets after prioritizing your renovation wishlist. This may involve methodically scanning the space to determine the areas needing remodelling, from floor to ceiling. Then figure out what you like and what you don’t. Visit model homes and online galleries to get a feeling of your style. Consider your home’s expected value after renovations and how long you plan on living there to determine what investment makes sense. If low-interest financing is required, hire qualified designers and/or referred contractors. Talk to us today for a personalized quote in remodeling services in Essex. 

We understand how stressful it can be to undertake a home remodelling project. That is why, at Craft Design and Build, we assist you at every stage of the project, starting with telephonic and on-site consultation and along with the design phase and careful selection of architects, engineers, and interior designers. We then assist you in developing a detailed scope of work — whether it is painting walls, roofing, repairs or install a deck —to facilitate the quote bidding process, allowing you to select from qualified and reliable contractors with valid licenses and insurance that covers personal injury and property damage. We promise to get your work done in a timely manner.

Design: The design phase will be the first stage of the renovation. At this point, you will meet with our designer to discuss your vision for your space. We take the time to get to know our clients to understand what is important to them and how we can turn their renovation dreams into reality. Our clients can see the layout to help visualize the final result once the vision is on paper.

Build: Our skilled creative carpenters will bring your plans to life during this stage. While they are working, our designer will continue to meet with you weekly to keep you updated on the progress. They will review what has been completed and what you can expect in the coming week.

The area will always be clean while the work is done and after your home renovation project is completed. The designer will conduct a final walk-through with you to ensure your complete satisfaction with the project. At this point, you can relax and enjoy your new surroundings!

The length of a project will differ depending on the scope of work, but we can provide an estimate early in the design process. Our construction agreements cover an estimated start and completion date during the design/build process.

The budget for your home remodel is strongly determined by the type and scope of the project, as well as the cost of materials. Each project is unique due to the existing structure, project size, and the wants and needs of each client. One of the most efficient ways to create a home renovation budget is to plan out the projects you want to complete and then price them with the assistance of a professional design-build contractor. To better understand the price ranges, you can go through our pricing guide or contact us for a personalized quote.

Though not required for every renovation project, it is usually best to shift during extensive remodels for convenience. Living off-site may help contractors speed up construction because working hours will be less restricted. Demo projects are extremely messy, producing huge amounts of dust and, in some cases, toxins. Renovation areas may be regarded as unusable for extended periods, so a requirement for temporary housing should be factored into project budgets. Working with experienced professionals like Craft Design and Build can help to remove the mystery from home renovation.
