Working with Erdmann on Your Exterior Design Project
We understand that most homeowners don’t undertake major exterior replacements and redesign projects more than once, and that’s why our goal is to help you get it right. Our comprehensive process not only ensures your 100 percent satisfaction with the project, but also guarantees that you’ll fall in love with your home all over again!
Here’s what to expect from our exterior design company:
Free In-Home Consultation We begin all our projects with a free in-home consultation to learn more about you, your home and your project goals. During this meeting, we take field measurements and photos of your home so we can recommend a solution that meets your exact needs, while providing you with an accurate cost estimate. This is also your chance to ask questions and to learn more about our process and our company. Have a Pinterest page or Ideabook on Houzz? We love seeing these during this first meeting!
Proposal Creation After our first meeting, your Erdmann representative goes back to the office and configures the project at a base price. From there, we develop options in “good,” “better” and “best” scenarios, giving you plenty of choices for upgrades and specific services to fit your needs and your budget.
Product Options Once we have identified the general scope of the project, our team members meet with you in your home to go over the proposal and present you with product samples of your siding, roofing, and door and window options. We work with some of the biggest names in the home remodeling and improvement business, like James Hardie® siding, Marvin windows and doors, and CertainTeed roofing products.
Design Options and Selection If you’re not sure what style or design to select, don’t worry! Our design team develops multiple exterior home design options so you can choose the one that best fits your home, your personality and your budget. We can also help you select siding colors as well as window, door and roofing styles that will transform your home.
Pre-Construction Once a design has been determined, we start the pre-construction phase of the project. At this time, we review the details with you and set up the project timeline. Before construction begins, we go over material placement, dumpster placement and what to expect during construction.
Construction Start On the first day of the project, the project manager meets with the crew and the homeowner in a project kickoff meeting. During construction, the project manager is on-site at least three days a week. He or she does a walk-through to ensure best practices are followed, and takes transformation pictures for the client scrapbook we prepare for you. Daily cleanup is mandatory.
Project Completion Once construction is complete, we conduct a full cleanup, including a magnetic sweep of the area. We discuss the project with you, obtain feedback and address any concerns you may have. During the walk-through, a punch list is made with a promise that items are completed within seven days.
Project Follow-Up We provide you with product care information, including product warranties as well as our own LIFETIME Workmanship Warranty. You receive a complimentary scrapbook showing the “before,” “during” and “after” of the entire project.
