What Is Design/Build?
Design/Build is a project delivery system in which a single entity, typically a contractor, manages a project’s design and construction phases. This approach streamlines the project process by creating a single point of responsibility for the owner, reducing the potential for communication breakdowns and delays. By combining design and construction, the design/build approach allows for a more cohesive and efficient project timeline, saving time and money. Additionally, the design/build approach gives the owner more control over the project’s overall vision and budget, ensuring that the final result is precisely what they envisioned.
Does Basement Remodeling Come with Any Warranty?
Our basements come with a 1-year warranty from project closing. We also have a dedicated customer care team who will be available to assist you during this time. So, if you encounter any issues or have any concerns, our team will be there to help and ensure that everything is taken care of.
How Long Does it Take to Finish a Basement?
The average construction timeline for a finished basement project is typically between 50 and 60 working days. However, since your project is custom, the timeline will be driven by the scope of work. This means that the timeline may vary depending on the specific requirements and complexity of your project.
Does Remodeling My Basement Add Value to My House?
Yes, remodeling your basement can add value to your house. A finished basement can provide additional living space, which is a desirable feature for many home buyers. It can also increase the overall square footage of your home, which can help to increase its value. Additionally, a well-designed and functional basement can make your home more attractive to potential buyers, which can result in a higher resale value
Can I Just Finish Part of My Basement?
Yes, you can certainly choose to finish just part of your basement. Finishing a portion of your basement can be a cost-effective way to add livable space to your home while keeping renovation costs down. Some homeowners choose to finish only a section of their basement for a variety of reasons, such as creating a home theater or game room, adding a guest bedroom or home office, or simply creating a functional storage area. The decision to finish just part of your basement will depend on your specific needs, budget, and goals for the space.
Do I Have To Worry About Any Permits?
At Garman, we understand that the process of obtaining permits for a construction project can be complicated and time-consuming. That’s why we’re here to help. As a design-build firm, we have years of experience navigating the permitting process and ensuring that our clients’ projects meet all the necessary codes and regulations.
When you work with us, we will take care of sourcing all the necessary permits for your project, from building permits to zoning approvals and everything in between. We will work closely with you to understand the scope of your project and the specific permits required and then prepare and submit all the necessary paperwork to the appropriate regulatory agencies for review and approval.
We know that the permitting process can be a major source of stress for many clients, which is why we take pride in our ability to streamline the process and make it as smooth and efficient as possible. Our team of experts will handle all the details, so you can focus on what matters most.
How Much Should I Budget For My Project?
Many clients approach us with the uncertainty of what a project could cost and how much to budget. Our design build team will work with you to help determine a project’s opinion of probable cost. A key step in working together at this stage is to remember a specific goal you want to accomplish with your project.
