The first step to planning your renovation is to decide on a budget.  This is the most important component on planning your remodel.  During the design stage, our team will provide you with a rough estimate of what your project will cost to provide you with a good idea of what the project will take to go from start to finish.


The next step in the process is to decide on what exactly you are looking for in your remodel.

Planning with DEVELEKO on features you are looking to add to the renovation allows us to draw up the preliminary design and work with you to get it exactly how you want it. 

Create a dream list.  Add the features you want, but may be outside your budget.  Because of the way DEVELEKO works, we may be able to provide you with those features with in your desired budget.
