how do i begin the remodel process?

The first step in beginning any project is figuring out the scope of work and getting an accurate bid on the project. This can be done multiple ways but the recommended process would first be to figure out a realistic budget by contacting our team to get a bid put together before moving forward. For larger projects we always recommend you first obtain permits and contact the county before reaching out to us to speed up the process. However, we can take you through the permitting process ourselves it will just delay the work and start date.

how long do renovations take?

Typically we work on large scale projects, such as complete guts with floor plan changes. This means that we must take the existing structure down to its frame and build it back up from scratch so typically we are talking eight plus weeks of construction alone. This varies depending on size and location of your home.

where can i learn more about slc building rules?

You can always ask us, but there is also a lot of information online. Visit’s Building Services FAQ for more information. You can stop in to the permits and zoning office in the city and county building. Contact us and we’re happy to meet you there. The permit office is located at 451 South State Street Room 215, SLC.
