Fireplace Remodeling Design Process:
As the centerpiece of your home where you likely spend most of your free time in the winter relaxing, reading, or watching your favorite movies, The Fireplace takes precedence as a work of art to be cherished for many years to come.
We come to your home for a preliminary consultation to clarify your wants and needs, making sure you understand the process clearly. Once our design concept is more concrete then a custom design package is created for your project. This design package is presented with floor plans and 3D renderings of the new space, a scope of work document with a cost and timeline required to complete the project.
These Documents, presented together, allow you to see precisely how your fireplace will look once the construction is complete and help you understand the process and cost of the project. If you then decide you would like to move forward and build this project with us we will credit the price of the design package to your first deposit to construct the project.
At your initial consultation, our experienced designer will walk you through the process, answer your questions, discuss what is possible based on the structure of your home and your budget, and give you a bottom line estimate of the cost and timeline required for us to complete everything. Upon collecting the design fee, our designer will take notes, measurements, and photos of your existing fireplace or proposed location. Having inspirational photos ready before your consultation is also very helpful.
The estimated cost for a fireplace remodel can vary greatly depending on its size and specifications. It’s important to understand that remodeling is a process and a service and not a product. No two projects are exactly the same. On average a standard Fireplace remodel can range anywhere from $5k to $15k or more. The cost of your unique project will depend on it’s specifications. To find out exactly how much your fireplace remodel will cost. A detailed plan is needed.
If you are interested in a custom design package for your project, similar to the following sample we are happy to create one for you, the fee is 7% of the projected budget for the project. Typically the larger the project is, the more time is spent on drawings, specifications, and developing the scope of work.
Beyond the Designs:
Full Turn-Key Service! Should you choose to use us as your contractor after the designs are finalized, we will completely manage the project for you from that point forward. This means that we obtain the required permits from the city, provide you with selection assistance via our interior designer, order and track all of your materials, work with our vetted team of professionals (Plumber, electrician, carpenters, masons etc.) to have your remodel installed correctly and and on schedule. We ensure that final inspections are done by the city once everything is complete.
We assign a project manager to your job once construction begins, they will be your direct point of contact throughout the entire project and will follow up with you, by email at the end of each step to let you know what was completed and what’s next. This process allows you to be very much involved and aware of what’s happening throughout your remodel, while not holding you responsible for managing any of it on your own!
