Renovation Process

At Fred Griffith, our mission is to provide cost-effective, high-quality homes while maintaining an enjoyable customer experience throughout the process. If you are considering a simple bathroom or a complete home renovation, we are here to show you our creative and innovative ideas. Provided your house has suffered damage from storms, we will work according to your insurance estimate and communicate with your insurance adjuster as needed.

Depending on your needs, we offer our resources for architectural, interior, and landscape design services to simplify the process of managing fees. With this added guidance and expertise, the design and selection process becomes enjoyable and stress-free. All projects of Fred Griffith meet and exceed the governing building code, which distinguishes us as a quality builder. We welcome renovations of all sizes, from small kitchen makeovers to whole-house redesign projects.

Renovation Construction

At Fred Griffith, we love the challenge of taking something old and giving it new life. Our process, when followed, will assure you an exciting experience when watching your home transform from the beginning to the finishing touches.

Stage 1: First Meeting. During this stage, we will discuss your renovation needs; create a budget; and review the potential renovation, addition, or storm damage repairs.

Stage 2: Develop Specifications and Plans. This is when we will work with you and a designer. If we create a plan, or if you utilize our design services, a fee will be required.

Stage 3: We will present you a cost estimate based on the specifications and plans, which may be modified as the job progresses. When you decide to commit to your project, we will sign an agreement to perform the work. An initial deposit is required at signing.

Stage 4: Sales Agreement. Based on your specifications, we will present an agreement for us to renovate your home, which may be modified as the job progresses. An initial deposit will be required at signing.

Stage 5: Pre-construction. When you finalize design selections, we will pre-order the primary materials to get started and order special items, such as lumber, cabinets, appliances, etc. You will receive a tentative construction schedule to keep you up-to-date and involved in the process.

Stage 6: Demolition. Once the necessary materials are ordered and all selection decisions necessary at this phase are finalized, we begin demolition.

Stage 7 to Completion: Depending on the size and type of your renovation the steps may vary and require a variety of skillsets. Normally, the stages follow the same sequence outlined in our New Home Construction steps.
