Renovation Consultation Request Q&A
When you’re considering a home renovation or remodeling project, you need to be able to trust that your construction team knows exactly what you want, and will be able to execute it for you skillfully, promptly, and on budget. At TQ Construction, we offer free in-home consultations to give you a chance to get to know us and get a feel for how we operate.
Before we begin any renovation project together, you need to be confident in our methods and the quality of our work, and feel comfortable communicating your needs and wishes. The consultation also gives us a chance to learn about your style, your goals for the project, and your priorities regarding time, cost, and design. Together, we’ll evaluate what’s possible and practical for your home and property. More questions? Read on to learn exactly what will happen during the consultation.
I have a tight schedule, are you flexible with appointment times?
We know you have a busy schedule, and we’ll do everything we can to accommodate you. We typically schedule a consultation within a week of receiving a request. Bringing your vision to life involves a lot of expertise and moving pieces. If you lead a busy career or lifestyle, you’ll be relieved to have our team of trusted allies on your side. We’re here for you every step of the way because we believe you deserve to love where you live.
How long will our initial meeting take?
You don’t need to block off a whole morning or afternoon – consultations usually take 1-2 hours. First meetings with our Project Consultants are typically at your project site, home, or at our office in South Burnaby with 1-2 of our team.
What do I need to do to prepare?
You’re probably already doing everything you need to prepare – just consider how you’ll be using the new space and any future needs you might have. What are your goals for your home renovation? If you aren’t sure about the full range of services that we offer, see our helpful services page for more information. Is the renovation intended to add space to your home, age-in-place, or simply to improve your quality of life? Do you have a laneway or a new custom home in mind? We specialize in complex renovations such as top-story additions and heritage work.
If you have pictures from magazines or albums online that will help us understand your vision, we’d love to see them! Don’t be shy! Additionally, you can learn more about different design styles by looking at our Lookbooks on our Houzz profile page. While it may take digging a little deeper to truly understand your signature style, it’s a great start. We highly recommend downloading our free Renovation Planning Checklist to help you test your readiness for a design-build renovation or the construction of a new home.
Do I need to know exactly what I want before the consultation?
You should have an idea of the scope of work, though it is not uncommon for a client to change their mind along the way. Rest assured, we’ll get down to the details in good time and help you to narrow down your vision. A renovation or build consultation is an opportunity for you to meet with us and see if we are right for you. The first meeting is casual and gives us a chance to learn more about your expectations, needs, budget, timeline, and interior design style.
Can you give me a tentative quote at the consultation?
Rather than dictating the cost, we don’t offer quotes until we’ve had a chance to fully review the project. It takes time and care to explain how we arrive at the cost together. Our 33 years of experience in construction has taught us that on-the-spot estimates and quotes are never accurate. It’s very important to us that you can trust the prices we prepare for you properly. Rest assured, we won’t leave you in suspense long. We will meet with you to discuss your Assessment shortly after our first meeting.
Is it okay to request a design-build consultation if I’m not sure I’m ready?
A consultation with our team presents no commitment on your part. If after the consultation, you decide you’re not ready to begin a project right now, we’ll be here for you when you are! While many of our clients like to jump in right away, just as many contact us in the “idea stage” and evolve their plans to full fruition at a later time. We prefer both! Regardless, we are happy to stay in touch with you during this gestation period and start when the time is best for you!
After the consultation, what happens next?
After the consult, we typically meet again to prepare an Assessment and a Design Service Agreement (DSA). You can learn more about our process here. The time frame for drawing up the design and estimate will vary depending on the project. However, we’ll let you know what to expect by the end of the consultation and walk you through all the steps! We are ready to turn your idea into a workable action plan! Contact us with your ideas for a new custom home or renovation makeover today!
