In Home Consultation FAQ

When you’re considering a home renovation or remodeling project, you need to be able to trust that your construction team knows exactly what you want, and will be able to execute it for you skillfully, promptly, and on-budget. Couple Looking at Renovation Plans At Prime Renovations, we offer free in-home consultations to give you a chance to get to know us and get a feel for how we operate. Before we begin any renovation project together, you need be confident in our methods and the quality of our work, and feel comfortable communicating your needs and wishes. The consultation also gives us a chance to learn about your style, your goals for the project, and your priorities regarding time, cost, and design. We’ll also be able to evaluate what’s possible and practical for your home and property. More questions? Read on to learn exactly what will happen during the consultation.

Can you do consultations on nights and weekends? I work full time.

We know you have a busy schedule, and we do everything we can to accommodate you. We’re happy to offer consultations in the evening and over the weekend if needed, and we can usually schedule a consultation within a week of receiving a request.

How long will it take?

You don’t need to block off a whole morning or afternoon – consultations usually take about an hour, though we may need more time to discuss complex projects.

Who will be coming?

“At Prime Renovations, every project is personally managed by owner and general contractor Troy Wilson. He’ll be the ones making sure your project is on time, on budget, and completed according to your wishes, so he’ll be the ones at the consultation.

Do I need to prepare?

You’re probably already doing everything you need to prepare – just consider how you’ll be using the new space, and any future needs you might have (e.g. a growing family or an aging parent). What are the main goals of your project? Is the renovation intended to add value to your home, prepare your home to sell, or simply improve your quality of life? If you have pictures from magazines or online that will help us understand what you want, we’d love to see them.

I have an idea of what I want, but I need some advice. Do I need to know exactly what I want before the consult?

No! It’s called a consultation for a reason. You need to know what kind of project you want to take on (bathroom remodel, new deck, etc.), but construction knowledge isn’t necessary.  We need to know your expectations for the project and have an understanding of the style you want, but beyond that, we can help you turn your idea into a workable plan. We offer professional services from color selection to full architectural drawings based on your needs.

Can you give me a tentative quote at the consultation?

At Prime Renovations, we don’t offer quotes until we’ve had a chance to fully review the project. Experience has taught us that on-the-spot estimates are simply not accurate, and it’s very important to us that our clients can trust the prices we quote.

I’m not sure if I can take on a remodeling project right now, but I still want to look into it. Is it okay to request a consultation if I’m not sure?

There is absolutely no commitment on your part until the project start is scheduled. All initial consultations are free and there is absolutely no commitment on your part. If after the consultation, you decide you’re not ready to begin a project right now, we’ll be here for you when you are!

After the consultation, what happens next?

After the consult, Troy and Chuck will work to prepare a design and an estimate to present to you at our next meeting. The time frame for drawing up the design and estimate will vary depending on the project, but we’ll let you know what to expect at the end of the consultation.

How accurate can I expect the quote to be?

Our proposals are well researched, detailed, and precise, allowing us to be very specific in our estimates. The prices we quote for your project are guaranteed – unless you specifically request a change or addition to the scope of work, we will not change the price. If you have any more questions about the free in-home consultations we offer, don’t hesitate to contact us. We know that our professionalism and integrity make a difference in the outcomes for our clients, but don’t just take our word for it!
