Free Estimates vs. Paid Consultations | Your Dream Home Improvements LLC

Proudly serving:

Home renovations are exciting no matter the size or scale, but they can also be slightly overwhelming. You might have a grand plan in mind, but you’re not quite sure how to implement it, or you may have seen online home remodeling projects that you like the look of but aren’t sure would work for your property.

This is the exact time you should book a home renovation project consultation so that you can have an expert sit down with you to discuss your goals. But don’t be put off when a home renovation contractor asks for their time to be compensated. This is standard practice within the industry, and you’re gaining their wealth of experience as they fine-tune your home remodeling plans and put in place a plan of action.

Let’s take a look at the difference between a free estimate, which we also offer our clients and a paid consultation for home renovation projects. By the end of this article, you’ll understand why it’s worth the investment when it comes to creating a home that works for you and your family.

Home Remodeling – Free Estimates

Let’s say you call up a home renovation contractor, and you ask for a rough estimate or ballpark figure on how much your home remodeling plans will set you back.

  1. A phone call means the expert cannot see your property and can’t gauge the size and scale of the building, the current materials and decor, and whether there is room to expand.
  2. Phone calls also put in place a communication barrier, so you won’t experience a smooth flow of conversation as you would when speaking directly to somebody in your front room.
  3. A free estimate tends to be best suited for repair work or a standard home improvement, such as remodeling a small downstairs bathroom or adding sliding doors to bring in more light to your kitchen/diner.

But that’s not to say a free estimate isn’t worth calling up about. In fact, a free estimate can help give clients a really good idea of what they can afford and what is just slightly out of their budget at the moment. Plus, at Your Dream Home Improvements, we take free estimates to a whole new level, making them even more valuable.

Our Modern Approach to Free Estimates

Our free home improvement estimates go far beyond traditional methods. We have a streamlined process and leverage modern technology to provide accurate and convenient estimates.

  1. 1Breaking Down Communication Barriers: Unlike other companies, we believe in the power of non-verbal communication, and so we enjoy jumping on short video calls with our clients to allow them to share video clips and photographs with our team to really uncover their goals and understand their unique needs. This means we don’t always need to visit your home to give you a rough estimate of how much it would cost to design and develop your dream home.
  2. Saving Our Clients’ Precious Time: A home renovation can be time-sensitive, and most of our clients are very busy balancing work and family commitments. That’s why we provide quick and convenient video or voice calls for free estimates for those who don’t have time to show us around their property at this stage and simply want a rough price point.

Paid Consultation: Elevating Your Project to the Next Level

For home remodeling projects that are unique, out of the box, or require more design and thought, we highly recommend a paid consultation with one of our experts.

Unlike a free estimate, a paid consultation for your home renovation project means having an expert visit your home and walk through your ideas with you. This enables us to understand how your home is used, which rooms are the most important and lived-in, which spaces are in need of a little TLC, and where you’d like to transform to give yourself and your loved ones room to grow.

We will take into account how the property flows, from one room to the next, the feeling and energy in each space, and explain how we can enhance your home so that it nurtures your family’s living style.

Ultimately, we will be there, by your side, to help you turn a living space into your dream home. And that’s why it’s so worth the time and initial investment.

A Paid Consultation With Your Dream Home Improvements

So, what will you get when you invite a member of our team to your home for a paid home remodeling consultation?

On-Site Assessment:

We will first carry out a detailed analysis of your property’s current state, taking into account its unique style, any bespoke materials used, and any repair work that will need to be carried out.

Plan Of Action:

Once we’ve completed our assessment, we can put in place a plan of action, including a project timeline that works for you. This means you can see exactly when work will be carried out and when your dream home will become a reality.

Scope of Work:

Finally, we will provide you with a scope of work document. Think of this as a blueprint that gives home renovation contractors the information needed to carry out the work required. This document will also include an accurate cost estimate for your home remodeling project.

3D Rendering Service – Optional Extras

Some clients enjoy seeing how their dream home will look before work begins, so we also offer an optional 3D rendering service as part of our paid consultations. This gives our clients the opportunity to see a lifelike reputation of how the improvements would look and the chance to make final changes.

Redefining the Consultation Experience

Nobody likes a hard sell or as though a salesman is pressuring you into making decisions you’re not comfortable with. This is especially true when it comes to interior design and making home improvements. This process should be seamless, exciting, and energizing. Not daunting, frustrating, and sales-driven. And that’s exactly why our mission is to transform the home improvement industry, redefining the initial consultation experience.

In doing so, we’ve embraced a more client-focused approach to bringing your ideas to life with 3D rendering right before your eyes. You no longer have to imagine what your home could be, or could look like. Our team takes the guesswork out of home remodeling, making the impossible possible, and booking a paid consultation is the first step on your journey to dream home design.
