What is the Design Build Process?

Factor’s Start-to-Finish Process

We understand the confusion that comes along with hiring contractors in the remodeling process and the headaches a lot of people experience during the design and construction phases. From concept to reality, our four-phased approach to home renovation ensures that your concerns and construction challenges are addressed up-front, so that you aren’t faced with any surprises.

Where your daydream starts to become a reality, the Design Download phase offers us the opportunity to get to know you, understand your tastes, and learn about your goals for a successful home renovation.

During the initial project download meeting, you’ll meet with a Project Developer at your home and walk through the spaces you’d like to improve. Through conversation, we’ll discover:

  • Your current constraints with the space
  • Your specific desires for improvements
  • Your lifestyle and design tastes
  • Your long term goals for the home and how you plan to live in it
  • Your desired investment amount

With this information, we’ll put together a project scope and present you with a cost projection for your project. Together, we’ll sign a design agreement and get started on the design phase.




In the project design phase, our designers and architects will take your vision to paper. We will work together with you to conceptualize the finished renovation and scope the construction needs.

You’ll be invited to our office for the initial design presentation where we will cover:

  • A clearly-defined design concept
  • Rough plans and sketches to showcase how it’ll all come together
  • How the plans work within your initial budget

With approval on the initial concepts, you’ll work with our designer to select finish options and fixtures that match your aesthetic and are within your budget. Finish selections are what tie the design together–design is in the details. In this meeting, you’ll review and select

  • Flooring
  • Trim and millwork
  • Cabinetry and countertops
  • Paint and tiles
  • Lighting fixtures
  • Plumbing and hardware



Let the hammer hit the nail. The construction phase is where your concept and design come together. Whether, you are living in your home or have chosen to move out during construction, our team will work to impose as little impact on your daily life as possible.

We take care of all permitting, licensing, insurance, project management, and keep you up to date with weekly on-site meetings. During these meetings, we’ll review any revisions you would like to see and schedule the work for these change orders, so you know what’s happening when, and can plan accordingly.

When construction is complete, we take extra steps to make certain every aspect of your renovation is perfect. Professional cleaners are hired so that all traces of construction dust are removed and a detailed inspection of work is completed to insure your complete satisfaction. You’ll then sign the substantial completion form and begin enjoying your newly remodeled home.




Proudly standing behind our craftsmanship, every project includes a two-year warranty using the same trade partners that did the original work. We proactively schedule post-work inspections for:

  • 30 days
  • 90 days
  • 1 year

We love being able to provide this peace of mind to you and your investment. All warranty concerns are treated with urgency and respect to you and your home.

See where a good idea can take you.
