To be the most customer-centric, Design + Build firm in the industry, where quality, craftsmanship, and customer satisfaction can be found at the core of every remodeling project.

The above is our collective mission here at Daniels Design & Remodeling. From our lead carpenters and in-house architect to our team of designers and client services specialists, our team is comprised of talented and passionate individuals. 

Because there are so many facets to completing a single renovation project, Daniels Design & Remodeling has sought out some of the most innovative people in the Northern Virginia renovation industry. We are proud to boast top-quality production specialists, masons, tradesmen, carpenters, and others who all work together to ensure that Daniels Design & Remodeling leaves our customers thrilled with both the process and outcome of their home renovation project with us. 

Our Process

Today’s blog focuses on the former of the two aspects of any home remodeling project: the process. While each home remodeling contractor will have a different set of steps regarding their process, not all home renovation companies will be as explicit as we are when it comes to laying out the details. In our experience, the more detailed, specific, and communicative we can be, the happier everyone becomes! 

That’s exactly why we’ve decided to embark on a three-part blog series in which we highlight each facet of our three-step process. Today, we begin with breaking down the components of the Feasibility Study, followed by posts which will highlight steps two and three — Choosing Your Design and Building Your Project! 

Step One: Feasibility Study

Now that we’ve drawn a bit of a roadmap for you, let’s dive into the meat and potatoes! Keep reading if you are interested in learning more about why we believe our remodeling process is the best in the industry. 

Home Visit

We want to show you, the customer, what is possible when you come to our boutique renovation firm in Northern Virginia; the more we can ignite your imagination, the more likely it is that we will be able to craft a remodeling plan that you’ll be thrilled about for years to come. 

In order to show you what is possible, we have to learn that for ourselves in the first place! That means our remodeling team will come visit your home in order to complete an onsite evaluation. Our team will include our Architect, Estimator, and Director of Client Services. 

Site Measure

Once our team has made their way to your home, we’ll perform site measurements on an “as-built” basis. We’ll also photograph all existing conditions in order to inform our architectural drawings of the project space you have in mind. 

Site Study

Once we have the measurements and relevant details gathered, our team will get together to evaluate the project space and, more specifically, its potential. Our goal is to be as thorough as possible so that we can minimize unknown surprises during the construction phase of the project. Essentially, we are following the “measure twice, cut once” rule of thumb, but on a much larger scale!

Conceptual Designs

Here comes the part where it gets more fun — our team will create as many as three conceptual designs. Each one will be unique from the next so that you can get a feel for the various avenues we can take in order to create something beautiful and liveable. Our team is highly focused on ensuring that the conceptual designs they create align with your vision and target investment figure. Again, we do our utmost to put the client first in all that we do. 

Material Selections

Next, our design team takes the time to develop and manage the requisite products your renovation project demands. We will then turn them into a cohesive package that aligns with your budget and, of course, your personal taste. 

Trade Evaluations

Here’s a great example as to how we go above and beyond what other local home remodeling contractors might offer — each trade involved in your project will have a specialist review the project plan from front to back. This detailed review ensures we leave no stone unturned while we hone in on learning exactly what we need to build your project according to code. Once this is accomplished, we will be able to present you with a construction agreement with a fixed investment figure. 

Compiling The Data

The final element of the first step in the Daniels Design & Remodeling process happens primarily behind the scenes. Once we have permit-ready plans in place, our team will collaborate in compile all of the product selections and trade information so that we can put it together and present you with a project you are absolutely thrilled with!

Up Next: Choose Your Design
