Step One: Getting Started
Option 1) (Free) Estimate: Total Home’s Certified Carpenter will meet with you at the location of your renovation for approximately a half hour. Our objective, is to gain a clear understanding of the scope of work and to discuss your vision of your project.
Option 2) Design Consultation – Up to two hours (250): Total Home’s team of professional Carpenter and Interior Designer will meet with you at the location of your renovation for up to two hours, to discuss in detail your renovation plans. Here we will have the opportunity to provide options and ideas, troubleshoot any potential red flags that may be obvious and to help answer any questions you may have going forward.
Step Two: Total Home will put together an estimate for your review. Your estimate will include all rough materials, labour, finishes (if we are selecting them). Total Home takes into consideration a ‘cost allowance’ for all fixtures and finishes, permits where applicable and costs associated with using our licensed team of professionals i.e. electrician, plumber etc… where required. Once the estimate has been approved we will book a start date and provide an estimate on length of time for your project.
Step Three: Total Home will arrive on site at the agreed upon time each day, with the exception of needing to pick up materials which is typically done prior to starting the project on a daily basis as needed. Total Home prides itself on communication, so we will inform you every step of the way should we expect delays or problems outside of the already discussed scope of work. At this time, we will work with you to make informed decisions.
Total Home adheres to all mandatory health and safety requirements and therefore will wear safety footwear on site during all seasons of the year. We do however, use appropriate drop sheets and protective runners throughout traffic areas. We require safe access to the renovation site during all seasons. We will require to have access to a power source to power our tools. Once our work day has ended, we will ensure that the work area is cleaned daily to the absolute best of our abilities.
“Gilbert Lutes of Total Home was responsible for supervising and working on the complete renovation of my kitchen and main bathroom. For both rooms, we had opted for a total re-design and this involved changing everything from location of sinks, windows, lights and vanities to installing new floors, cabinets, and even new ceilings. Throughout the renovation, I found that Gilbert Lutes’ workmanship was of the highest quality. He takes great pride in his work and he delivers on time!
Throughout the project, Gilbert was open to suggestions and offered helpful and frank advice when decisions had to be made. His experience in the field is extensive and this has made me confident in his ability to do the work. In a short period of time I had developed a sense of trust in Gilbert and felt that I was dealing with a professional. Overall, I am very satisfied with the end result of our home renovations and I look forward to hiring Gilbert Lutes once again for the next phase of work.”
