Why You Should Hire A Design-builder Over An Architect For Your Home Remodeling Project

May 11th, 2018

When looking to remodel a home, it’s easy to become uncertain where to begin. Seemingly endless choices combined with budgetary constraints can be overwhelming. One of these decisions you have to make is whether to hire an architect to merely draw up the plans and pass them to a contractor or if they should hire a design-builder who’s fully integrated and can perform all of the design services.

At Munz Construction, we want to make your remodeling process simple and straightforward. Our designers can provide all the necessary drawings and even 3D renderings for your project. We also work alongside you to understand your priorities and preferences, and work to achieve them. Using your input, we can even assist you with your selection of materials, surfaces, and colors.

While architects are trained in design theory, design-builders have valuable and extensive real-world experience, as well as familiarity with local and state regulations, including permit requirements.

The Importance Of A Budget

When you’re remodeling your home on a budget, the last thing you need is to let an architect get an estimate from a local contractor and overrun your spending ability. At Munz Construction, our design-build team works side-by-side with you to identify your budgetary constraints and sticks to them.

During remodeling projects, changes can and do occur, and an architect will typically charge you hourly to make the adjustments. Since we do all our designs in-house, including utilizing cutting-edge technology like digital rendering, we can work to avoid these changes and the costs associated with them.

Integrated Services And Communication

We are much more invested in your local project than an architect who will simply hand off the plans to another entity to finish the job. Munz Construction’s design-build services will see your remodeling job all the way through. From its inception to the finishing touches, we will be there every step of the way.

And when it comes to communication, relaying messages between an architect and a contractor can be onerous and unnecessary. As a local design-builder, Munz Construction uses only internal communication to ensure a palpable synergy between our team members, our client, and our shared vision for the project at hand.

Munz Construction features the expert design services to turn your house into your dream home, all on time and on budget. Visit our design services page to see how we can assist your next remodeling project.
