Levco’s Remodeling Process

How Levco’s individual remodeling process works.

When you call we will listen carefully to learn what you are interested in having done. We will ask a series of inquisitive focused questions to get the ball rolling and help us to determine if a site visit is appropriate.

If it sounds good, we will offer to book a convenient visit with you. There is no better way to grasp your ideas than to be relaxed in the space together. Ideally everyone with a stake in the outcome of the project will be able to attend. Plan our onsite visit to last about an hour.

We will prepare you by sending some helpful information by email to set the stage for success.

Selecting a remodeler

The first visit is at your home

  • I’ll listen to what is frustrating you with your current situation.
  • Discover what you have been imagining as a solution.
  • See what opportunities exist with the existing conditions
  • Photo document what I see.
  • Hear what you are prepared to invest.
  • Listen to your biggest fears about remodeling.
  • Determine together if we are a good fit to fulfill your wants and needs.

Learn about your plans for the future helps me design realistic solutions. (No stress or worries, we are perfectly comfortable in your home as it is. Ghastly before pictures are preferred).

The swing set project

  1. If we discover that we are not a good fit (which is OK) we’ll part as friends.
  2. If we are a good fit, then we sign a letter of intent (and collect a small deposit) to explore the project further. We will also book a second visit to make a presentation.

Design Timeline

Your small investment triggers a series of steps. Behind the scenes we will be gather all the information learned along the way and organize it. We study all aspects and calculate the time investment, the material allowances that will be required, and in many cases consult with the specialty trade partners we will be working with. Estimating accurately takes concentration and uninterrupted preparation time. We firmly believe this step is a science not an art. In all it will take time to accomplish, we will create a custom time line so you can participate in the process.

CAD Drawings

If the project changes in scope or finishes from our original assumptions, naturally the investment is subject to change. It is our job to keep you updated as we figure these things out together.

another unique amazing feature we offer is that during the creative design phase we will often meet to draw what you want in front of you.

(Rarely are two projects exactly alike. The process is often altered and tailored to meet your specific needs.)


Once we have everything put together, we will share what we figured out with you.

  1. Solutions options for solving the issues you shared.
  2. Assurances that we will avoid your biggest fears. 
  3. A fixed price contract amount for the project.
  4. A preliminary construction schedule in weeks.

Assuming everything looks good, we will get going by entering a remodeling agreement and scheduling the next few steps, including shopping for the materials you want to include and ordering time sensitive items.
