FAQ

What should I expect during the design-build renovation?

Meridian Construction will take you through each stage of the construction process with precision and care. The first stage of the renovation will be the design phase. At this point, you will sit down with our designer and discuss what you are envisioning for your space. We take the time to learn about our clients in order to understand what is important to you, and how we can make this renovation turn from a dream to a reality. Once the vision is on paper, our clients can see the layout and even a 3-D model to help visualize the final outcome.

From here we go to the building stage. During this stage our experienced carpenters will bring your plans to life. While they are working, our designer will continue to have weekly on-site meetings with you to keep you involved in the process. They will go over what has been completed as well as what you should expect for the upcoming week.
While the work is being done, and when your home renovation project is finished, the area will always be clean. The designer will have a final walk through with you to ensure that you are completely satisfied with the final project. At this point you will be able to sit back and enjoy your new space!

How long should my home remodeling project take?

The length of a project will vary depending on the scope of work, but we can give an idea of duration early in design. All of our construction agreements include an approximate start date and completion date.

Should I plan more money than the contract price?

We take time with our clients during the design process to help understand costs associated with your project. We also do our best to identify any options you may choose in the future and include pricing for those options in our proposal. Typically when we sign a contract with our customer we hold true to the contracted price. We take the time to go over every detail of your project to ensure the cost is accurate. If there is any additional work or changes made to the project by the homeowner, this could be an additional charge, but our designer will go over the new changes with you before any charges are incurred.

Can I live in my house while it is being remodeled?

In general yes you can. Our carpenters take care to section off the area where they are working to minimize disturbance through the rest of your house.

Do I have to worry about lead?

If lead is found, Meridian Construction is certified by the EPA in lead paint removal. You will be provided with literature to help you gain an understanding of the removal process and how we will keep your home and family safe.

I want a new kitchen but I am not sure what style of cabinets I want.

As a distributer of Wellborn Cabinets, we will be able to show you different samples of cabinet styles as well as the different finishes available. Our designer will be able to help you choose according to your vision.

Do I have to worry about any permits?

Meridian Construction will file for all of your construction permits.

How much should I budget for my project?
