Why Your Designer Should Be On The Same Team As Your Contractor

Why Is It So Important To Have Your Designer And Your Contractor on the Same Team?

If you have friends, family members, or neighbors who have gone through a home remodeling project, you may have heard a few horror stories. Or maybe you were working with a previous contractor and the project ended early because of construction or design issues.  That’s why at Factor Design Build, we follow a more successful model when it comes to home additions, kitchen remodels, and even building a new home from scratch. Our team of designers and builders work together to ensure the design is something that can actually be created and we’re all on board with the design from day one. Here is why we have so much success with the design build process.

Designers Know What Looks Best

When you’ve decided you want to do a home remodel or build a home addition, you are probably at a point where you realize your home isn’t meeting your needs. Either it’s outdated or not large and open enough to entertain or support the size of your family.

You need a designer that can turn your remodel dreams into reality. Designers are professionals, with the education and experience needed to make the right decisions for their clients. They are able to point you in the right direction when it comes to contemporary design and layout. They can help you pick finishes that go together, find the perfect space for built-in storage, and move rooms and walls in a way that has a good flow and is structurally sound. Perhaps they’ll have ideas you wouldn’t have thought of, like moving a room to the other side of the house to get more sun exposure.

Executing the Design

Here is where the rubber meets the road. Can your design be brought to life? When working with a design build firm the designer, architect, contractors, construction team, and carpenters work together from the start of the project. You’ll never run into the nightmare of discovering your design isn’t feasible—like that it requires moving utilities and load-bearing walls that will significantly inflate the cost. Because the contractors are on-site for the initial walk-through and inspection, there are no surprises later in the project. Plus, the carpenters can provide feedback on best building materials to use for the design.

When it comes to the construction team, they are on the same page with the designer which you don’t necessarily get if your designer and contractor don’t work together regularly. They are able to alert the designer of structural or utility features that won’t be able to be changed. The carpenters know the entire vision as well so the final product is sure to be what was presented at the start of the project.
