ESI understands how to achieve the end result of a life changing home with the luxury, quality, and comforts our clients look for in a remodeling project. From scoping to final clean-up – our attention to detail and focus on perfection remains steady. Ultimately, through years of experience in home building and custom remodels, our client partnership success relies on our proven process:

Step 1 – Scoping & Designs

To make every remodel project a successful and transformative experience, we start with good communication. Clear and effective communication between our team and our clients is critical when developing and documenting  the scope, styles, finishes and budget. Our process to define and fully understand your needs is thorough – including customized questionnaires, design review meetings, multiple design and iterations with our architects and design partners, and final project scoping. Hand in hand with you, ESI helps make your vision a reality on paper and in your mind’s eye.

Step 2 – Cost Estimates, Schedule & Contracting

Once you are comfortable with the project design, we reach out to proven subcontractor tradesmen to finalize the project costs and set a workable schedule. After more than 20 years working with key partners in Northern California, we have a number of outstanding craftsmen and subcontractors that work as an extension of our team. As such, their interest is the same as ours – your satisfaction. Based on final costs, we’ll work through a simple yet protective contracting process for the remodel project and then get started!

Step 3 – Permitting, Demolition & Construction

After completing all the permitting requirements, ESI will proceed quickly with demolition, removal of existing home elements (walls, old cabinets, appliances, etc.) and prepare the home for new construction. We are adamant about minimizing dust and avoidable annoyances with temporary walls, protective floor coverings, and other measures. Construction will proceed according to our detailed schedule with subcontractors and craftsmen working closely together to minimize the amount of time needed to complete and deliver a quality project. Every day, our ESI Project Foreman will be onsite working and overseeing your project and communicating with you – all to ensure the project meets the plans and quality expectations.

Step 4 – Remodel Completion & Ongoing Support

For ESI, completion of your remodeling project is more than just clean-up and walking out. Once everything is complete, we will provide you with a final project binder including as-built drawings, agency permits, material specifications, manufacturer/supplier cut sheets, in-progress photos, and other valuable project information. After this, ESI is still not done – we stand by our work and for the next 10 years will respond to any questions, concerns, or warranty items you have.

We admit it – ESI’s remodeling approach may not be the least expensive nor fastest available to you. However, your experience and the value of a new life changing home makes us the most logical choice. Let’s be partners and give your home new life.
