Step 1 – Consultation
At DCON we know that taking the first steps can be a challenge, that’s why we’ve made the process as easy as possible. Just pick up your phone and call us, or, if you’d prefer, email us. We will be happy to hear more about your project, so you can learn more about the options, and schedule a free on-site estimate. Unlike your local network provider company, we will schedule our appointment for a time that is convenient for YOU. Whether you need to meet before your morning fitness class or at the end of a long day at the office, one of DCON’s expert advisors will come to your home to inspect and walk through what needs to be done and then prepare an estimate customized on your goals and based on the scope of work the project entails.
Step 2 – Budgeting
At DCON, we’re in the business of getting you an accurate estimate for what your project will cost to be done RIGHT, by licensed and experienced craftsmen. We believe transparency is key to building and maintaining a good relationship throughout the process from start to finish, and we will be sure to provide you with a clear cost outline proposal for your project before we begin. Fortunately for you, we don’t spend a great deal of money on marketing and advertising and we don’t undertake work that might compromise our commitment to absolute excellence. We deliver ultimate results, certain to increase the value of your home and the quality of your life, at a price point very much within the regional industry average.
Step 3 – Approvals
Now that your renovation plan is falling into place, the next step is to get the proper approvals from the appropriate agency, in New York City, known as the DOB (Department of Buildings) and if applicable, the building owners’ association. In New York City, for example, if you’re doing a project that involves any plumbing, electrical work, exterior pointing, home extensions, etc., you are obligated to get a permit. If you are simply getting cosmetic work done in your home, such as painting, plastering, flooring, etc., permits are generally not required. If you have a building owners association in your building, they will have a list of requirements, usually similar to any other association in New York City. We are experienced with the various required approvals, and our team will assist with this process.
Step 4 – Design, Creating the Vision
Whatever your vision may be, our team will help you achieve it. We will transform your wishes into a detailed plan and guide you on where materials can be sourced from and of design options you may have never imagined. Lots of homeowners utilize resource sites such as Pinterest, Houzz, and others, to get ideas and inspiration for their own project. We will work with you to optimize your living space with materials and layout considerations to enhance the appearance while improving the value of your home.
Step 5 – Production
Now that we have the project approvals and the materials for the renovation, it is time to get started! Let our licensed and insured team of craftspeople show you what they’re made of, turning your dreams into a new reality is what DCON is all about. Instead of advertising in high-cost magazines and news outlets, we believe it’s far more cost effective to simply focus on making sure that every single project will deliver us referrals down the line. Our team consists of every type of craftsperson necessary for all types of home remodeling projects, and our goal is to work efficiently to minimize the time that we spend in your home.
Step 6 – Inspection
When all work has been finished, a thorough inspection will be performed, so we can identify any areas that need adjustment. Our Customer’s complete satisfaction is our top priority, and we work hard to ensure that the project is of the highest quality standards. Our team of builders have transformed your living space for the better, increased the value of your property and made your life significantly more comfortable, functional and visually representative of your character.
Step 7 – Completion
Finally, after all said and done, we will wrap up by cleaning up the area, removing all scraps and wiping away the dust.
