FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- Starting a remodeling project without a professional design is a bit like taking a road trip without a map: you can arrive at your destination, but it’s a much more difficult process than it had to be. Even for homeowners who know exactly what they want, having a professional design provides a clear blueprint and ensures a project's ease from start to finish.
One of the key benefits to having a professional plan is clarity. Translating a client's vision into a plan that clearly reflects what they want is key to a successful project. "We’ve all had occasions where we thought we were very clear and listeners told us they understood what we were saying," said Skip Wyatt, owner of HM Remodeling. "However, we’ve found ourselves having to explain things multiple times to multiple people. Working with a professional plan eliminates this issue."
Working with professional designers on a plan can also make good ideas even better. "Years of training and experience enables your designer to make helpful suggestions that will enhance your vision, save you money and help you avoid costly mistakes," said Wyatt.
Even for simple renovations, projects involve a team of salespeople, designers, contractors and laborers. With so many moving parts, having a design documents ensures everyone is on the same page and works as a team. "Your design pictures are worth a thousand words when it comes to keeping everybody on the same page," said Wyatt.
Most importantly, having a professional plan protects the most important asset: a home's value. "You’re going to make dozens of decisions that will impact the value of your home," said Wyatt. "A professional design will cost from one to five percent of the project budget, but return on this investment is substantial in terms of your money and your time."
For homeowners in Fairfield County, HM Remodeling can service the entire lifecycle of a design plan, from initial renovation to continued maintenance. "Our business model is to offer both design and remodeling service," said Wyatt. "We find that it’s the best way to deliver the quality our customers expect."
