Our Process

Every home remodel is unique to you. Over our 30+ year-history in San Diego, we have developed an effective approach to completing the home remodeling process from start to finish, so that your vision becomes a reality. This includes design services, planning, demolition, foundation, framing, plumbing/electrical/HVAC, insulation, exteriors, finishes and clean up. We also adhere to the importance of schedule, budget, materials, and design of each project when planning your remodel, which includes all of the important requirements needed for final inspection and approval.

1 Transparency

We believe in transparency. That means involving you, the owner, in all the details, decisions and costs. By maintaining open lines of communication, you can make educated decisions on where to best invest your time and budget. You can be as involved in the project as you want. Bottom line: you will be a part of the process from day one to completion.

2 Planning

Pre-construction planning is one of the most important and cost-saving steps in the remodeling process. It is often overlooked,but can save thousands of dollars in the end. We will review your architect’s plan to identify cost saving opportunities with building methods or material selections, resulting in a master budget with guidelines. The more planning we can implement ahead of time, the greater success you will have in the finished product. Working as a team is a proven method for success.

3 Demolition

Demolition can mean a full tear down or an intricate, piece-by-piece removal. We use the right size crew and techniques to get the job done successfully and as quickly as possible. We also recycle as much as possible and salvage items that can be used by others so that you can feel good about a sustainable approach to home remodeling.

4 Foundation

The foundation is the first structural element of your home remodeling or custom home project. It is more than just concrete slabs These are the building blocks that keep your home safe and durable. We use a combination of elements such as rebar, hardware, and vapor barriers, which make a difference in a strong foundation.

5 Framing

When it comes to framing, details really make a difference in the end. Hardware and lumber are very important choices. They come in many different grades and types. Trust our experience to know which grade will create the best, and highest quality home remodeling project.

6 Infrastructure

(Plumbing, Electrical + HVAC)

With today’s quickly-evolving technologies, we help you navigate the choices that best fit your needs. We stay on the cutting edge of product developments with our subcontractors and suppliers so you know you’re getting the latest and greatest in new home construction practices and technologies.

7 Drywall

Smooth and seamless drywalling all starts in the framing process. Properly installed drywall minimizes the potential for imperfections which may result in challenges down the road. Our experienced installers understand the value of this practice and how it affects the success of the remodel and quality finishing touches.

8 Stucco & Exterior Finishes

Different types of stucco provide for different looks and styles. You may think you have a limited selection when it comes to color. In fact, you have material and texture choices that can achieve the exact look you want. Siding is another popular choice, with more options besides wood.

Roofing is a very import decision for three reasons:
  • Appearance
  • Performance
  • Durability
There are many types of roofs. From standing metal with seams to composite asphalt shingle, cool roofs to TPO synthetics, let us help you make the right choice for your design and budget.

10 Windows & Doors

Windows and doors are usually one of the larger cost items in your budget. Materials and ease of operation are key to a well-ventilated house. We help choose the right product for your location. Your home will perform the way you want it to and look the way you envisioned to be.

Whether your budget allows for high-end custom cabinets or more cost effective pre-manufactured cabinets, you have options. We can even mix and match cabinet selections to create a unique, high-quality design that is functional, stylish, and meets your budgetary needs.

12 Finishes + Clean Up

From the tile to the paint, we are there to see your project through and support you to the end of your home remodel. This typically consists of scheduling and supervising a subcontracting team. You’re hiring a general contractor to oversee your project., We have seasoned superintendents and foremen to manage each team member working on your home. You need this type of leadership on site to answer any questions or concerns. We’ve found that incorporating this role into our approach helps the process run smoothly and efficiently.

Trade Partners

We have developed long-term relationships with some of the highest quality professionals in their respective fields. However, we often hire outside our pool to fill in scheduling gaps and provide cost savings where necessary. We hold all of our subcontractors to the highest standards for quality and professionalism… the same standards to which we hold our own employees.
