Process

Improving your living environment is an exciting experience.
Our 30+ years of experience enables us to guide you through
the joys and challenges of this process.

Consultation

01. – Let’s talk

Planning is the key to success! Our very first visit is a conversation to listen to your objectives, provide guidance and gather general project elements. You are encouraged to provide photos of projects you like, a rough outline of your needs, and have some idea of your financial investment in the project. That information forms the basis of our relationship together!

Design

02. – Expectations, scope and drawings

A great project begins with a great plan, and the TDS Custom Construction in-house design team is recognized for creative excellence. Our professionals utilize years of practical remodeling and design experience to develop custom additions and remodeled spaces that integrate seamlessly with existing structures. Specialists, such as our Certified Kitchen Designer and Universal Design Certified Professional, allow us to fulfill all of your design needs.

Budget

.03 – Product selection and target date

Product selection can sometimes be overwhelming. That’s why we’re here to help you pick out key elements like tile, fixtures, cabinets, and counter tops and ensure that the each matches your style and personality. Based on those selections we present a budget to ensure you’re aware of the costs upfront.

Construction

.04 – Demolition, framing and finish work

We begin by installing coverings throughout your home to protect your belongings. Then we remove everything that is no longer needed. If necessary, the foundation is poured and the structure of the project is framed in. Once the plumbing, electrical, HVAC and mechanical work is completed, the project comes to life! The insulation and drywall is installed, followed by painting, interior doors, millwork, cabinets, floor coverings, countertops, plumbing and lighting fixtures.

Completion

05. – Final inspections and client approval

Our job’s not finished until you’re satisfied! Our lead carpenter assembles a list of the remaining items, which we review with you to make sure it’s comprehensive. After the list is completed and we pass final inspection, the project is considered complete. You won’t have to worry after settling into your new space, as we offer a one-year warranty on all work performed.
