                  How do we work?

Step 1.  Fill-out the E-Form for get in-home consultation and estimate.

During this first email-consultation, we will set up an appointment to meet at your project site. http://www.sokoldesigngroup.com/get_estimate.htm.

 

Step 2. Discussion and Consultation of Project Design on-site:

Our first priority is to listen to your needs and to gain the feel for how you want your project to function and look, and to discuss feasibility of design and your budget. Your budget-range will be our target for our design.

 

Step 3. Conceptual Design Agreement and Preliminary Cost Estimates: 

We will provide three different 3D computer models of design with corresponding preliminary estimates for each of version (see example). The cost of the Conceptual Design Agreement is $ 550 - $1,500 (depending on size of the project), and design will be ready in 5 working days from receipt date of the agreement signed.

The Conceptual Design will help you to clearly see our project ideas with your budget range, and how you can influence the outcome of your project.  If you decide to proceed with the project with us, this money is credited back to you as a deposit on the construction project.

 

Step 4. Fixed Price Contract and Construction:

After signed the Fixed Price Contract (see example), we will get the building, plumbing and electrical permits and begin construction process. In the building/remodeling process, our Project Manager is responsible for scheduling the trades and products necessary for project completion along with high quality assurance.

Our team is supervised and meets on the job site every day, providing 24 hours emergency on call, and is in constant communication with the company owner. 

 

Step 5. After finish the project. 

We provide a 1-year warranty on all finishing of work, and a 10-year warranty on all structural work performed.
