Why should I remodel my home?

How does your home remodeling work?
Ten Key Home & Kitchen Remodeling employs a dependable remodeling strategy that ensures outstanding results and customer satisfaction. It goes like this:
- We start with an initial onsite consultation to get to know the client’s needs and tastes better.
- Next, we produce several 3D designs with corresponding price estimates and send them to the client.
- Our client revises the designs and provides necessary feedback.
- We create the final design and calculate a price estimate.
- We provide the client with the contract and final plans.
- The plans are shared with our construction team and a project schedule is determined.
- As the project progresses, the client can use a practical construction management platform to follow it and look at the schedule. We also keep communication lines open for any client feedback.
- Finally, it’s time for the client to enjoy the outcome of the project!
Do you offer free estimates?
Yes, we offer initial consultations and design ideas free of charge.
How much does a remodel cost?
The price of a home remodel will significantly vary based on several aspects:
- The type: A small bump-out will, understandably, be much more affordable than a full-scale whole house remodel.
- The complexity: Does your space have any particular structural restrictions that have to be worked around? Does the project involve the tearing down of walls or new plumbing?
- The materials: If you go for high-end, luxury materials, like natural stone, your expenses will increase considerably.
Ten Key Home & Kitchen Remodels offers a free-of-charge initial consultation complete with design advice. This can help you determine if the project you’re planning is within your budget. Our expert designers can also help you fine-tuned every facet of your remodel so it doesn’t exceed the budget.
What construction management software do you use?
Here at Ten Key Home & Kitchen Remodels, we consider it one of our top priorities to keep the client involved at every stage of the project. We use BuilderTrend, a reliable system that lets our clients keep track of the progress of our work. You simply log onto an online client portal and you can monitor how your project is going. This platform also allows us to supervise and manage our projects from lead to completion all in one system.
How long will the project take?
There isn’t exactly a one size fits all answer to this question because every project size is different. Normally, our projects are full-scale remodels of kitchens or bathrooms, and we also rock out some great additions. Projects can take 4-6 weeks if they’re on the small side and 2-4 months if really large.
The first step to any project is a consultation with our specialists, where we’ll get a better idea of the scope of the work you have in mind. Afterwards, we’ll provide you with an estimated time frame for the completion of the project. We schedule everything with you with a goal of zero surprises.
Do I need to hire a plumber or electrician?
Not at all! We are a one stop shop when it comes to home remodeling. As a full-service remodeling company, we are able to take any project from start to finish! All you’ll need to do is tell us which designs you like best (we provide you custom options), and our design team will walk you through any other choices you need to make. Then leave the rest to us!
Our design and construction team carefully coordinate to bring you maximum convenience. Our meticulous project management gives you a smooth, effortless, and enjoyable experience all throughout the process.
Is there a deposit or any money up front?
Yes, we will collect 50% down on the day you sign up and the remaining 50% on the date of completion. This allows for us to purchase all of the material and have it shipped and delivered to your home prior to install.
Do you provide a service warranty?
Yes, Ten Key offers a 1-year warranty on its work!
Are you insured?
Yes! We are fully insured in case anything unexpected and unfortunate occurs during the project. Insurance kind of feels like betting against yourself, which we don’t like to do, but we aren’t so thick to not carry it! Ten Key Home & Kitchen Remodels cares about every facet of your customer experience and we strive to make every step as comfortable and stress-free for you as can be. We are professionals, you know. You’re covered.
Do you have architects, interior designers, and other specialists?
Ten Key has multiple well-trained interior designers on staff. Our team has decades of experience in nearly all types of construction.
How do you vet your team members?
Our team has extensive experience not only in construction but also in recruiting and human resources management. We are very selective about who joins our Ten Key Team as we are a family. Also, we test new trades by starting them on personal projects so that we can ensure everyone on our job site is high quality and a great fit for our clients.
What should I do to prepare for the remodel?
Although we’ll manage every aspect of your project so you have a hassle-free experience, there are a few things that you could do in advance to get ready. The best way to prepare is to remove all of your personal belongings from the area being remodeled. This includes removing picture frames or artwork from the walls, cleaning out any drawers if we’re doing counters or cabinet work, and making sure there is a clear path for the installers to work.
It is extremely important for the builders to be able to work without anything getting in the way. This facilitates the construction process and contributes to bringing your project to completion.
Will there be a lot of dust?
Unfortunately, probably. Dust is a part of remodeling. However, it’s no cause for concern because it can be cleaned up afterwards and the results you’ll get will be more than worth it. The amount of dust depends on the type of project that we’re doing. If we’re just replacing the counters, there won’t be much dust, but if we are tearing out flooring or walls, prepare for a good amount. It settles in a few days.
We will do our very best to minimize the remodel’s impact on your daily life as we work. We’ll also take steps to prep the site to try to minimize the cleanup afterwards. We have partners that can do a whole home cleaning, too – just ask us if you’re interested.
