New York City is one of the most challenging places to complete a renovation project on time and within budget. Most homeowners often underestimate the stage of planning, coordination, and finance it’ll take to get a renovation project executed properly — not to mention the surprises that can surface when you open up the partitions of the city’s historical housing stock. The key to any smooth renovation, from a bathroom upgrade to a full-on gut, relies upon a very significant aspect: preparing for it in advance. Here are some key points to help with the success of your project:
1. Research well to source a good team
2. Get realistic about the timing
3. Set up a place to stay for the duration of the construction, if applicable
4. Be prepared for your planned budget to change
5. Acquiring Permits and dealing with DOB has its process
6. Dealing with the Owners Association
7. Take your neighbors into consideration
8. Older buildings often hold surprises
9. Knowing who is responsible if something goes wrong
The specific permits and approvals vary depending on where your home is located and the types of renovations we are completing. We’ll assist with coordinating and obtaining all necessary approvals and city-issued permits. We’ll make sure to have all of these approvals in place before starting on demolition and installation.
As a general rule, if you are removing or adding any walls inside your home, at a minimum you will need a report from an Engineer, or, an architect to prepare drawings and sign-off your project. We have great experience working with architects and other professionals in renovation projects across NYC, and will help guide you each step of the way.
The Design Process – The first step in the kitchen remodel process is to determine what style and design you are looking for in your dream kitchen. Finding inspiration photos to share with our team, can help us source the materials that would be best for your ideal kitchen.
Scope of Work & Work Agreement – Once we get an idea of what you are dreaming of in your kitchen, we will prepare a scope of work that details everything involved in making that kitchen a reality. This outlines the cost, timeframe, and exactly what is included to complete the job.
Ordering the Materials – After the work agreement has been finalized, its time to order the materials needed to complete your kitchen remodel. We can help with this process to be on top of deliveries and keep things organized.
Doing the Work – Once we have the materials we need, we can begin your kitchen remodel! Depending on the complexity of your kitchen remodel project, this can take anywhere from a few days up to 30 to 50 days.
Cleanup and Final Touches – Once your remodel is complete, we will remove all of our tools and equipment and clean up the kitchen area, leaving you to enjoy the heart in your home!
Using sites like Pinterest, Houzz, Remodelista etc. to help find a selection of inspiration images that talk to you, helps start the design process with ease. By sharing photos with an experienced remodeling team, you are able to easily convey what your dream kitchen looks like. We are then able to source material options based on these designs and help you finalize the perfect selection for your kitchen in NYC. (This is what most designers-for-hire are doing anyways!)
