Option #2: Project Development Process

If you are committing to working with R. L. Rider Remodeling for both the planning as well as the construction of your project we will offer you our Project Development Process and Agreement. The agreement details the steps of our process, what is included in the process, as well as what your responsibilities will be as we work together.

It is important that we both take our roles during this process seriously:

The ultimate success of your project, as well as your experience and confidence during construction, will depend on both of us working together to plan every single detail of your project before construction begins. At R. L. Rider Remodeling we believe in beginning with the end in mind. If we are both clear about the end goals well before construction begins, we can build your project to the agreed budget and complete it on time as promised. This can help reduce the stress and any potential mid-project surprises that can often come with remodeling.

About the process:

Our Project Development Process is typically a three-meeting process with assigned homework between meetings. During the process we will work together to gather the information needed to design, specify and accurately price your project.

During the process we will help you keep your project within your budget by budgeting as we design and designing within your budget. You can of course ask us to exceed the agreed budget. But to do so, we will ask you to confirm and commit to your new budget in writing before allowing your project to exceed the budget we initially agreed to.
