ESI understands how to deliver an exceptional home. We never compromise on the luxury, quality, and comfort our clients look for in a remodeling project. From scoping to the final clean-up, our attention to detail and focus on perfection remains steady. Through years of experience in building custom homes and custom remodels, we’ve established a proven process designed to deliver a successful remodel for you:

Step 1 – Scoping & Designs

To make your home remodel project successful and transformative, 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 for your home remodel. Our process to define and fully understand your needs is thorough. We’ll use customized questionnaires, design review meetings, multiple design and iterations with our architects and design partners, and final project scoping in order to understand your remodeling goals. Together, we’ll make your vision come to life.

Step 2 – Cost Estimates, Schedule & Contracting

Once you are comfortable with the project design, we reach out to our proven subcontractors and tradesmen to finalize your 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 that work as an extension of our team. Their interest is the same as ours: your satisfaction. Based on final costs, we’ll work through a simple, yet protective, contracting process for your home remodel 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, our results speak for themselves. We’ll deliver an exceptional home that meets your needs, a home that is both luxurious and functional. Let’s be partners and give your home new life.
