Our Remodeling Process

Home Makeovers have never been more popular. When people want to adapt their current home to better suit their needs, remodeling is the way to go. If you could remodel or create a new home addition, what would it be? A remodeled kitchen? A remodeled bath? Basement?

The most frequently asked question we get is…” So, how does this work?”

At Icon, our remodeling process always starts with a free in-home consultation from one of our designers.

Step 1


Our first meeting is very important and it sets the stage for what is to come.  It is critically important from the outset that we are in sync on your vision, the dynamics between us feel good and that we have the capabilities to meet your expectations. Once we understand the goals, vision and “must-haves” for your project, we can create specifications for the work. Our specifications will clearly outline the scope of your project and all inclusions. We recognize that it’s our job to ensure that you understand all the details of your project and so we encourage open communication.

Often projects will require architectural plans. In these cases, we work closely with you and one of our architectural partners to ensure the perfect plan for the house. Our goal is to come up with a design that fits your needs and your budget.

Step 2


Once specifications and plans have been agreed upon, we will facilitate any necessary permitting. We like to use this time to finalize the finishes and final touches. Our home remodelers work with you to make the selection process as convenient as possible. We have a beautifully outfitted showroom available to aid in the selection of materials such as tile, hardwood, cabinetry, and fixtures, or we would be happy to bring samples to the job site.

We recognize that communication is vital during construction. A project manager will be on site to meet regularly with you, to oversee the scheduling of tradesman, the projects progress, and will also be present for all required inspections during the course of your remodel.

Step 3

Remodeling Well Done

Let’s face it… remodeling is inconvenient! Living through construction can be tough. We work very hard to make sure the process is as painless as possible by leaving the workspace swept and tidy, and protecting all unaffected parts of the house.

We totally understand that as the project progresses you might be inspired to make some changes.  This is never a problem.  We work with you to get the changes made, as cost effectively as possible, and with the least amount of impact to the construction timeline.

We also understand you want the project wrapped up and your home back as expeditiously, as possible.  Timely communication from both sides, tight schedules and your Project Manager ensure that.

Step 4

Wrap Up

Once the renovation is complete your Project Manager will do a final walk through with you to make sure your are thoroughly satisfied.  At this time all warranty information, product care guides, any instructions needed on how to use a new technology, and our 24 hour service contact info is given to you.
