Your Journey With The Homeowners Helper

Get In Touch​

The first step in transforming your home is to contact us. Whether you prefer phone, email, or our online contact forms, we’re here to listen.​​


Discovery Session​

Next, we arrange a phone call to discuss your vision and project specifications and expectations. This helps us give you a ballpark estimate and assess whether we’re a suitable fit for your needs.​​ *Now is the best time to send or show us your inspiration pictures if you have any*​​


Detailed Estimate​

Then, we set up an in-person consultation to go over the project in greater detail. This allows us to fine-tune your goals and create a comprehensive contract. Once we have answered any outstanding questions and signed the contract, we apply for the necessary permits and wait for approval. 


Construction Phase​

Upon receiving permit approval, we schedule a pre-construction walkthrough. Your dedicated Project Manager will discuss the finer details and set expectations for the construction phase, and then the real magic starts.​​


Completion and Handover​

As the project nears its end, we convene for a final walk-through to make sure everything aligns with your expectations and vision. Any remaining tasks or adjustments are dealt with promptly so you can start enjoying your new space without delay.​​
