We do what we can to make this as smooth a process as possible.

And THE IDEA CO has the right process.

When you work with THE IDEA CO, we make sure you know what to expect at every step, whether it’s a major new building project, restoration, renovation, remodel, or repair.

We’ve designed our detailed process to help you and our team stay on the same page. Here’s how it works:

Step 1
INITIAL VISIT. We’ll meet you at the location to discuss your project, your timetable, and expectations. We’ll also get measurements, pictures, and any other important information about the project.

Step 2
BUDGET DRAFT. Soon after the first visit, we’ll send you a Budget Draft, addressing the scope of work, materials, and projected cost. At this point, you can decide how to move forward. The Budget Draft is a valuable planning tool to help you make decisions, but it is not a contract.

Step 3
DETAILED PROPOSAL/CONTRACT. Using the Budget Draft for guidance, we’ll work with you on design, material selection, and various options. Once you’ve signed the contract and submitted your deposit (usually 10 percent plus any funds needed to secure special-order items), we can begin working to make your vision a reality.

Step 4
PROGRESS REPORTS. We’ll keep you up to date on any changes to your project—including schedules, budgets, or other updates. Our staff is available to answer any questions you might have.

Step 5
INVOICING. As the project progresses, we’ll send you a monthly invoice for work completed.

Step 6
FINISHED! We aim for your complete satisfaction. So before we consider the job finished, we’ll walk through your space to make sure we’ve met your expectations.

Enjoy your new space!
