Northern Virginia Remodeling Process
We understand that the remodeling process can be a little intimidating at first. In order to help everyone understand what to expect when beginning a building or remodeling project, we have broken the entire process down into 7 different steps. We hope these easy to follow steps provide a clear understanding of the separate stages of a professional building and remodeling project.
The 7 Steps of a Successful Remodel
Your Initial Free In-Home Consultation
Richard Lensis, the owner of Lensis Builders, will meet you at your home to discuss your building and remodeling goals, needs and wishes. Get all of your questions answered and learn more about our company during this complimentary meeting. Morning, afternoon and evening appointments are available for your convenience. You will be able to decide if Lensis Builders is a good fit for you and your family.
Ballpark Estimate and Project Scope
After your Free In-Home Consultation, we will issue a preliminary ballpark estimate based on measurements, your wishlist and project ideas. This includes the scope of the project and the preliminary estimate. After you feel comfortable with preliminary pricing, we can move forward with design and establishing a project budget.
Initial Design and Budget
Our talented designers will create a top-notch building or remodeling solution for you to review. Your ideas and comments will be incorporated with functional and aesthetic principles to create a design you will love. We will also create a 3-Dimensional computer rendering of your remodel so you can “walk-through” your new project. Our design work will strive to be consistent with your budget.
You will also be invited to our Showroom and Selection Center to start selections of materials such as cabinet types, hardware, tile, etc. You can view these products in person to find exactly what you are looking for.
Design Finalization, Construction Proposal and Project Timeline
After your design is finalized and materials have been chosen, the proposal is signed. The permit process begins and construction dates are agreed upon and established.
You will meet with Richard Lensis and our Lead Carpenter that will be working at your home. We will review specific dates, expectations and an overview of your projects conditions which include logistics such as children, pets, working hours and areas of your home affected by the project. All of your home’s boundaries will be established before any work begins.
While it’s no secret that the building and remodeling phase can be a little noisy, we pride ourselves on keeping your project running smoothly. We keep your home as clean as possible while protecting your floors, carpet and walls. Check out our GuildQuality and Angie’s List reviews to read what our clients have to say about our services.

After your building and remodeling project is completed, you will meet with Richard to go over the final results and make sure you are 100% happy with your project. Congratulations on your new building and remodeling project!
