Frequently Asked Questions

How do I choose a contractor?

Here are some factors you should consider when choosing a contractor:

  • references
  • workmanship quality
  • professionalism
  • communication abilities
  • member of a building association

Finding a contractor with whom you can develop a strong, trusting working relationship is key.

Do we need plans?

All projects need plans. This helps eliminate confusion for all involved in the renovation project (the clients, project manager and trades people).

Do we need permits?

For decorating, you don’t need a permit as long as you’re not moving or adding anything. If plumbing, electrical components and gas lines require movement then you need a permit. The contractor will take care of the permit process for you, and coordinate the inspections.

Do we need to sign a contract?

Yes, you should always have a written agreement between you and your contractor which outlines the scope of work, warrantees, timelines, budgets, liability etc. There needs to be a clear picture of what the contractor is providing.

How long will my project take?

Once the design has been finalized, we can give you a good estimate of when we’ll finish your project. As a guideline, renovations take several weeks to several months depending on many factors including the level of detail, size and complexity of your project.
