Your Neighborhood Remodeler in Lorton, VA, Serving Fairfax, Falls Church, Alexandria & the Surrounding Areas
At WISA Solutions, we are constantly honing our skills to deliver the absolute best service to our clients—and that including continuously improving our design/build process. We have worked hard since our inception in 2011 to create a process that is streamlined, emphasizes communication, and results in gorgeous work.
Every project we do is unique, which means the process we follow is never quite the same. Some projects are more extensive than others, adding on steps you may not see below, but all the work we do follows this structure:
Clients contact us by either phone call, web form, email, or showroom visit. You will speak to a WISA representative to provide some basic information, such as your name, address, type of project, preferred timeline, and estimated budget. If the work specified is something that falls in with our scope, we will schedule one free consultation either by phone or showroom visit. Prior to the consultation, the client will need to provide images of the space, filled-out forms, any measurements you can get of your existing space, and any images for inspiration on what you are looking to achieve.
Initial 30-Minute Consultation
This consultation is done either in-person in our showroom or via phone or web call with a WISA consultant. This meeting goes one step further to go more in-depth into your vision. We are always fully transparent to see if we are a good fit for each other to move onto the next step. Transparency is key on both sides here. We will start talking about budget, how long you plan on living in the house, why you’re doing this project, and so on.
Your WISA consultant will also show previous projects that may be similar in either scope or type and go over how much it may cost. Depending on the type of project, we may or may not be able to give a ballpark price. Your consultant will then go over our process and what the next steps will be. If both parties feel like they are ready to move forward together, WISA will schedule a day to come out to your property.
One or more WISA consultants will visit your home to look around in person. We will talk about the project a little more and if it makes sense, we will sign a design agreement, which will require a non-refundable deposit (the amount varies on the size/type of project). Our team will then take thorough measurements of the space, take pictures, and ask any pertinent questions.
Design & Product Selections
The WISA team will work on the first design based on the prior discussions. We will go over products and finishes that were priced out along with giving an estimate on the completing the work per the design. Sometimes we get it right on the first design and other times it takes two or three designs. Our design agreement covers up to three designs. Once everything is finalized, we will schedule an appointment to return to take final measurements. WISA offers a fixed price contract so you never have to worry about being nickel and dimed.
WISA will return to your home for final measurements to make sure everything will work with the design. We may need to cut holes in the drywall at this point to investigate beyond your walls.
If everything checks out, we then sign the project agreement contract, which requires another deposit to start the production process: ordering products, submitting permits, and more.
With every box checked and every agreement signed, work will begin!
