Remodeling Process

Our 6 Step Remodeling Process:

Step 1 - Consultation

It takes most human beings between 9-12 months to start walking. At KBR we know that taking those first steps can be a challenge, that’s why we’ve made getting the ball rolling as easy as possible. Just pick up the phone and call us, or, if you’re eating a sandwich, email us. One of our remodeling consultants will be happy to hear more about your project and arrange for a free on-site estimate. Unlike your local cable provider, KBR will schedule our visit for a time that is convenient for YOU. Whether you need to meet before your morning Yoga class or at the end of a long day at the office, one of KBR’s expert advisors will come to your home, walk through what needs to be done and prepare an estimate based on the presented scope of work.

Step 2 - Budgeting

The only thing more dangerous than a budget without a shopping list, is a shopping list without a budget! At KBR we’re not in the business of sending out estimates that we know will get us the job, we’re in the business of getting you an accurate estimate for what your project will cost to be done RIGHT, by licensed and experienced craftsmen. At KBR “good” just isn’t good enough. Fortunately for you, we don’t spend a ton of money on marketing and advertising and we don’t take on work that might compromise our commitment to absolute excellence. Consequently, we deliver impeccable results, sure to increase the value of your home and the quality of your life, hassle free, at a price point very much within the regional industry average.

Step 3 - Design

Albert Einstein spent the last twenty years of his life in sandals and a grey sweatshirt! That’s right, even the smartest among us aren’t always the most design savvy. Some people come to KBR with magazine cutouts and three-dimensional mock-ups already in hand, others, with a simple desire to stop stubbing their toe every time they step into their shower. Whatever your vision may be, KBR’s team of designers will help you achieve it. If it’s just a matter of helping to sort out and source the materials, our designers are titillated by tile, focused on faucets and crazy about cabinetry! Lastly, our designers will work within your budget and spatial limitations to optimize every inch of your living space with materials and layout considerations that represent your aesthetic while improving the value of your home.

Step 4 - Prepare

Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay may have been the first to summit Everest, but they weren't the first to try! Mountaineers of equal desire, ambition and skill were repeatedly defeated by the worlds most majestic mountain, not because of a lack of effort, but, because of a lack of preparedness. How many climbers perished because of a torn map, not enough rope or the wrong pair of socks is unknown. What is known, is that Hillary brought experience and the right tools to the job, and that, in conjunction with a never say die attitude is what got him to the top. Well, that and Mr. Norgay. In most cases, aspects of the preparation process go into effect during the design stage. All of the documents required to begin production are filed with your building or the city while our design team expedites the delivery and storage of your materials. This ensures that once all of the appropriate paperwork has been approved, our production team is ready to get rolling. KBR's family of plumbers and electricians, tiling specialists and lighting guru's coordinate the installation of every facet of your scope of work. This equates to a seamless realization of your plan with the fewest possible delays. KBR IS the very definition of NYC remodeling, we know how frustrating it can be when you're on a tight schedule and you hear that indecipherable service announcement on your subway train or platform. With KBR you'll never get derailed by late start dates or materials that are out of stock, we've quelled the qualms of some of NYC's surliest of supers, ensuring that your ideal renovation project is an express ride away.

Step 5 - Production

Walk through the kitchen of any number of NYC's five star restaurants and what will you see? Near chaos! But, through all that bedlam, we end up with the dishes that keep tourists and locals clamoring for reservations. KBR's recipe for success through the years has been equal parts inspiration and perspiration. Let our licensed and insured team of craftspeople show you what they're made of, making your dreams come true is what KBR is all about. Don't let the website or thousands of likes on various social media platforms fool you, KBR is still very much a father and son team that know that we're only as good as our last job. Advertising in Architectural magazines is expensive, at KBR we believe that it's far more cost effective and stress free to simply focus on making sure that every single project will deliver us referrals and down the line, repeat business. The KBR team is comprised of every conceivable artisan necessary for every type of home remodeling project, that means that your project will be completed on time, within your budget and without worry.

Step 6 - Completion

You'll feel like a kid that's just been handed the keys to FAO Shwarz! Ok, maybe not that ecstatic, but, you'll feel whatever the adult equivalent to that may be. Our builders have transformed your living space for the better, increased the value of your property and made your life significantly more comfortable, functional and visually representative of your character. Now, it's time to enjoy it! Before we quietly exit stage right we'll make sure that any minor final adjustments are taken care of, and, unlike your companies I.T. guy who got sick at the company party you hosted last year, we'll leave your home in better condition than we found it, complete with a custom clean-up on the final day of work.
