How do I schedule a consultation?
To schedule a design consultation, give us a call at (310) 312-8216
or fill out our contact form
. All design estimates are free and no obligation. We attempt to be as thorough as possible, providing all customers with a detailed written scope of work. Depending on your project, we may also provide renderings of what the finished project is expected to look like.
How long will my project take?
During your consultation, we’ll discuss the projected timeline for your project. We are careful not to over-promise on timelines we can’t keep. To speed up the process, it’s helpful to be available for picking out materials and answering questions we may have for you. It’s also important that you are comfortable giving us access to your home during work hours.
How much will my home remodeling project cost?
Project costs vary widely depending on the scope of the project. We understand that people have different budgets to work with, so please be honest and upfront about what you’re comfortable spending. After doing this work for many years, we can help you make the most of your budget!
Do you use subcontractors?
We use both hourly employees and subcontractors who we have a long-standing relationship with. All contractors and subcontractors are licensed and insured in the state of California, as well as covered under our insurance. You are in good hands with our team!
Will my home be messy during the renovation?
Home remodeling is messy, dusty and dirty. Unfortunately, there’s no way around it. That said, we do our part in trying to keep your home liveable while we work. We lay down clean tarps and clean the work space daily.
How often will you communicate with me?
Kavin Construction takes on big projects, but we are a small team. Communication is key to staying on target and producing superior results, so you can expect regular status updates. We will follow the pre-approved schedule and make you aware of any changes. You will have a project manager to keep in contact with, but you can also contact our owner/builder, Michael Kavin, at any time.
How do we make design selections for our home?
We will assist you every step of the way. We have qualified professionals who are ready to answer your questions and help you make informed decisions for your home. Because we are general contractors, we can handle a wide range of projects. For example, a pool company may build you a pool, but we can do that plus the deck, lighting, an outdoor kitchen and hardscape features.
Can I make changes during the construction process?
There are times when you will be able to make changes. We will let you know of these times when they come up. Please be aware that change order fees may apply.
If building materials increase after the work has begun, will this affect my total cost?
Our trade partners and suppliers will honor the prices that are in our quote. Therefore, we will honor the prices in your contract. Once you sign the contract, this is what you can expect to pay. Quotes, on the other hand, may have some fluctuations.
