There are lots of decisions to be made when remodeling, but none more important than the first: should you bid out individual contractors to design and craft your new space, or hire a design-build firm to take the reins on your project? Here are three reasons hiring a design-build firm like Louisville’s own Bailey Remodeling is the better option:
1. We’ll Complete Your Project Faster
The planning process alone, from the initial consultation and design phase to the start of construction, typically takes eight to nine months to complete when hiring independent contractors. With a design-build firm like Bailey Remodeling, that timeline is closer to five to six months. We’ve already done the hard work of curating teams of designers, architects, builders, and tradespeople. What’s more, our teams are used to working together and understand each other’s capabilities and limitations.
2. We Provide a Stress-Free, Streamlined Process
Hiring separate contractors is a lot of time and effort on your part — especially with current labor shortages. Managing and communicating with the carpentry, tilework, painting, electrical, and other professionals you need and trying to coordinate their schedules to get your project done is no easy feat! Design-build firms are one-stop shops. All you have to do is tell us what you need to make your house into your dream home, and we’ll take it from there.
3. We’re More Efficient
Now more than ever, the construction industry is running into problems with supply shortages. Materials and appliances are hard to come by, and often take longer to arrive than anticipated. Luckily, a design-build firm like Bailey Remodeling has more flexibility during projects. We’ll shift our plans and make any necessary adjustments, so even with a few bumps in the road, your project will be completed as quickly as possible.
Keep in mind that even with the advantages of design-build, current labor and supply shortages mean remodels are taking longer than usual. That’s why it’s important to plan ahead and start the process now for your future projects.
