Why you need an architect for remodeling jobs
Many clients think they can cut costs if they will just hire a contractor to redo their bathroom, add a room to the house, remodel their kitchen… but this is not true.
An architect is needed for your project to:
Help make decisions about needs and priorities and set goals and program for the project.
Help create design options, look at alternatives and focus on the best solution.
Determine feasibility of design considering budget and schedule.
Verify that all building codes are met.
Match the remodel to the rest of the house.
Avoid costly mistakes and save valuable time.
Benefit from the architect’s knowledge and experience- new trends, materials, limitations etc.
Assist with obtaining permits.
Help finding the right builder/contractor for the project
Supervise the construction work and communicate with the contractor, oversee and troubleshoot the work.
