Vision Construction Process

Remodeling or building a new custom home can be stressful. From deciding on a budget you are comfortable with, choosing a contractor that you like and trust and making all the selections to create an end product that you absolutely love, the process can seem overwhelming. We here at Vision Construction try to make this process as stress free as possible. One way we help make this happen is in our 3-Step Quoting system where we guide you from the idea stage, through design, selections, and then to a detailed and professional proposal with a firm price.

Step 1: Scope and Range Phone Call/Email (approx. 15-30 min)

  • Gather information pertaining to your project, receive and discuss existing pictures of your home, talk about likes and dislikes, expectations for us (and you), provide information about Vision Construction, listen and help answer any questions you may have concerning your project.
  • Once we gather the above information, we provide a “guesstimated range” of the investment amount your project may cost. This guesstimate will likely be based on similar projects we have completed along with our 25+ years in the industry.
  • If guesstimated range is within your budget, we schedule an in-home consultation and move into Step 2.
  • Cost = FREE

Step 2: Scope and Range In-Home Consultation (approx. 30-90 min)

  • Take additional on-site pictures, actual measurements of project area, collect any supporting documents you may have including drawings/designs/sketches and example pictures.
  • Purpose of this meeting is to either confirm or adjust our initial guesstimate figures we discussed on the phone. Goal is to not exceed our initial guesstimate by more than 20% unless additional project requests have been discussed during this meeting.
  • Another goal of ours during this time is to continue educating you of the entire remodeling process, our systems we have in place with helping you choose selection products, suppliers and help answer any more questions you may have.
  • Cost = FREE

Step 3: Design and Estimate Created (approx. 1-2 weeks)

  • Take all information gathered to this point and start to sit down with our designers, architects, suppliers, in-house team and trade partners to create a very detailed, written and guaranteed quote.
  • A good bit of time goes into creating this preliminary design and quote so we usually schedule a return visit to your home or business to discuss all the details and information in person.
  • During this 1-2 week period you may be asked to visit some of our preferred suppliers for selection decisions as well as our trade partners may need to visit your project to gather additional information for their phase of work and estimate.
  • For larger addition projects and custom home builds this Step 3 could potentially take several weeks as we’re going back and forth with our design team and suppliers.
  • Our goal for Step 3 is to be as detailed and thorough as possible so when we present our final bid proposal you are prepared to make a hiring decision.
  • Cost = Approx 1-2 % of project guesstimate range with $150 minimum (2% if our architect has to create Preliminary CAD drawings) Most often a non-refundable retainer check is received at the end of Step 2 meeting to cover and begin these services. Design and estimate fee goes toward overall project cost if Vision Construction is chosen as your contractor.



My bathroom remodel was done with such precision and care. I love it! Jason, Noah, John, and all of these guys were like family to me. They worked hard, cleaned up, and listened to me. I will hire them again for the next remodel. You get what you pay [...]
