We have arrived at our third and final blog post of this three-part blog series dedicated to highlighting our customer-focused home remodeling process here in Northern Virginia. Before we dive straight into highlighting the various components of how we build your project, we’ll remind our prospective customers about who we are at Daniels Design & Remodeling.

Who We Are

We are a boutique home redesign firm based out of Fairfax, Virginia; we proudly serve Northern Virginia with a customer-focused approach to kitchen renovations, bathroom remodel projects, exterior redesigns, hardscaping projects, and much more. With a holistic team of passionate and talented tradespeople, production specialists, designers, and client experience specialists, we want you to be thrilled with both the process and results when you work with Daniels Design & Remodeling. 

Choose Your Design

If you haven’t gotten the chance to read parts one or two, in which we highlighted the Feasibility Study and Choose Your Project sections, respectively, we’d encourage you to go back and do that right now. The context will help you make better sense of the bigger picture as it relates to what you can expect when you choose the Northern Virginia home remodeling contractor known as DD&R! 


After we’ve thoroughly reviewed the construction agreement with you, it will then be ratified so that everything is official. After that, our remodeling contractors will work with you to secure a timeframe on our production schedule. Once this is determined, you can expect to get a customized schedule which details the flow of each component of your project. 

We aren’t loosey-goosey with the scheduling either; we know it matters to you and yours. We will be detailed from start to finish, including dates. We’ll also be sure to post this schedule online so you can conveniently reference it at your leisure. What’s more, we take the time to review it with you each week so that you can stay updated on our progress. Not only does this keep you in the loop, but it allows you the opportunity to provide any feedback you’d like to offer about the home remodel itself. 


We take care of obtaining all relevant permits well before we start working. This task includes preparing drawings for submission to your local architectural review board (whether that be in your neighborhood or larger community). 

Pre-Construction Meeting

Simply because we’ve talked you through the timeline of the project construction does not mean our work is complete when it comes to making sure you are comfortable in your own home. While any home renovation will have its share of inconveniences, we do everything in our power to help you understand what you can expect from us. 

The pre-construction meeting will help us set expectations for daily interactions between our production team and you (and your family). We will talk about everything from parking and dumpster locations to making special considerations for pets or lifestyle requests. Of course, you should know that we want you to feel free to ask any questions you might have. We do our best to be as thorough as possible, but you know yourself, your family’s habits, and your home better than we ever could!

Weekly Progress Meetings

Assurances and promises aren’t worth anything if there is no follow-through. That’s why we have clear and consistent communication during weekly progress meetings with our production manager. We will keep you updated on our progress, naturally, but it will also be a chance for you to bring up any concerns you might have, the upcoming schedule, and we will talk through any decisions that are on the horizon. 


The inspections process is another element that we completely handle on our own. Throughout the course of construction, we are mindful of all relevant county inspections that need to be done. We not only ensure that the project will be up to code, but we make sure that all inspections are executed in a prompt fashion so that there aren’t any hold-ups or delays.

Final Walk Through

After everything on our checklist has been checked, we will review all work performed with you on our final walk through. We have a firm goal of a zero-item punch list, but from time to time there might be something that isn’t up to par or how you envisioned it exactly. We’ll create a list of any open items that might pop up so that we can all track their progress. We will work quickly to resolve them as soon as we can, in the event that they exist. 


There’s one last element we’d like to cover. Working with Daniels Design & Remodeling means you are working with a remodeling firm that brings top-quality materials, craftsmanship, and warranties. We want you to be secure in that knowledge, and that’s exactly why we back our work 100 percent with a two-year warranty! This means at any time you can call us and we will be there to resolve any issues that happen to rear their heads. We are so confident in our work that we are rarely compelled to employ such measures. 


Whether you have a brand new floor plan, a renovated master bath, or a brand new patio complete with hardscaping to enjoy, all that’s left is for you to enjoy your new home for many years to come!

Ted Daniels and his team delivered a superior remodeling experience in every aspect of our project. We knew remodeling the kitchen, master bathroom, laundry room, and refinishing the other three bathrooms all at the same time would be complicated. The DDR folks developed a great design, worked with us to incorporate our ideas, produced a schedule that was reasonable, and then stuck to it. The production team was superb. Michael, the Production Manager, and our Lead Carpenter were responsive, flexible, and detailed in their delivery of the finished project. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome and recommend DDR without hesitation.” – Fairfax, Virginia

Just like this satisfied Fairfax-based customer of ours, we can’t wait to blow you away with our commitment, passion, and talent. If you think we are singing our own praises a bit too much, we understand where you are coming from. But on the other hand, ask yourself what kind of renovation firm you’d like to work with? We go above and beyond at Daniels Design & Remodeling, and we believe our prospective customers deserve to know who the best in Northern Virginia is. 

If you’d like to hear more from our customers about their experience, we totally understand! You can do so right here. You can also find additional information about how DD&R is a NARI Certified Remodeler, how we are proud to offer Guild Quality craftsmanship, along with a breakdown of how we stack up against our Northern Virginia competitors
