Whether you are remodeling, adding on, or building a new home, having work done on your house can be stressful and overwhelming. That’s where a quality contractor like Dimension Design-Build-Remodel comes in. “We are one team of highly skilled and knowledgeable professionals, experienced designers, tradesmen, and material suppliers all working together efficiently,” said Dimension Inc. president and CEO David Kallie, MCR, CKBR, CAPS. “It’s our job to handle every aspect of the remodeling and/or new construction project.”
Look for these four traits when deciding who to trust with the updates to your home. You’ll want a contractor who has…
A Creative and Deep Knowledge of the Industry
Your contractor should aim to deliver best results, listen to your needs and requests, and meet them with open-mindedness and innovation.
At Dimension Design-Build-Remodel, a senior designer produces floor plans for the project based on a customer’s vision. “Typically, two to three options are created and then will be presented for the homeowners’ review,” David said.
Lisa R. from Germantown used Dimension when remodeling her kitchen. “I made a list of all the things I wanted to include and thought there was no way they could be able to get as much storage and functionality as I wanted,” she said. “Not only did they do it, but they also blew it out of the water.”
Outstanding Communication Skills
Communication is essential in a successful home renovation project. When Matt and Sarah S. from Sussex called Dimension about a remodeling issue, “they came out quickly, acknowledged the problem, and had it fixed in a reasonable amount of time.”
Lisa R. added, “They were on site very frequently during the heat of the project, so anything that needed to be discussed with the tradesmen was handled.”
In addition to project managers who are often on site and available via phone, email, or text, Dimension tracks their projects using Buildertrend computer software. This shows homeowners who will be working on the house, when, and for how long.
An Understanding of Budget Importance
“Open and honest construction budgeting is part of our design/build process,” David said. “We have an open book policy where homeowners can understand where the money is being spent and decide where adjustments need to be made if we need to adjust the budget. We believe this help us create a more trusting relationship with our clients and allows our customers to be a bigger part of the team.”
Matt and Sarah S. confirmed Dimension was receptive to their budget from the beginning to the end of the project, and every stage in between. “Dimension was willing to do every requirement we had, we just had to consider how important that requirement was within our budget,” they said. “Ultimately, we got everything –and more—that we wanted within our budget.”
A Concern for Safety
Dimension is committed to safety, whether they are doing the work or are hiring professional subcontractors.
“Most of the work was done during the summer, and as I’m a teacher, I was home with my young children,” Sarah S. said. “We never felt unsafe, and the teams were always accommodating to my kids’ curiosity to see what was going on.”
Dimension also uses a base level of “Step Beyond Green to Healthy Elements” in their work. “We feel it our duty as builders and designers to create healthier indoor environments for our families and children,” David said. “Currently, we are the only design/builder in Wisconsin dedicated to this cause. We believe it is the right thing to do.”
