1. Establish Clear Communication Channels

Open and transparent communication between the builder and homeowner is key to a successful renovation project.

we establish clear channels of communication from the outset, whether it’s through email, phone calls, or project management software.

For us to effectively manage the project, be sure to regularly update us on your preferences, concerns, and any changes to the scope of work to avoid misunderstandings and delays.

2. Set Realistic Expectations

Here at Bowman Custom Woodwork, we believe in setting realistic expectations for the renovation timeline, budget, and outcomes.

To help your remodel go smoothly, we stay organized by keeping track of important documents, schedules, and deadlines.

BCW will create a dedicated renovation folder or binder to store contracts, permits, invoices, and other relevant paperwork.

Furthermore, we will use calendars, spreadsheets, and/or project management tools to track progress, appointments, and upcoming tasks.
