Thank you for your interest in Zoe’s ProEdge Painting! We believe the more our clients know before starting a project, the happier they will be throughout the process. Below you’ll find answers to the questions we get asked the most from new customers.
How much will this cost?
Defining a budget is the responsible way to start a renovation. You may have already set a budget or you may need help forecasting a budget. Our goal is to provide the best value for the money when investing in your home. We will be upfront on evaluating if you can get what you want within budget or if you need to scale back the scope of work.
We present the total price of your project before a deposit is made. Additionally, we provide an itemized quote of each phase of the project that includes materials. The price of a newly renovated kitchen or bath with the same layout and scope of work can change as much as 35% with material selections–same amount of work just different material. We present materials for every price point. We value engineer every job so you get the desired look and design within your budget.
Is there a cost for the initial estimate or to set up an appointment?
There is no charge for the estimate or to set up an appointment. We want to walk your space, review your project, and go over ideas to see if we are the best fit for your job.
How much is the deposit?
We require about 30% of the project proposal price as a deposit.
How does payment work?
The average payment structure for a single project is an initial deposit of one-third of the total project cost; the second installment (approximately one-third) after demo/prep work is completed and work has fully commenced (at about 50% completion); and lastly, the final remaining installment, plus the cost of materials that were provided/installed, will be invoiced once the job (including any approved change orders) is completed.
When can you start and how long will it take?
There is no easy way to answer this question because every project is customized. The space, site conditions, client preferences, design, and materials are all variables that impact the project timeline. Once the estimate is approved and we finalize details of the project, we will work with you to establish a schedule and timeline for your project.
Will there be change orders?
Yes and no. Because every project is customized, the most common change order typically happens after demo when we discover existing damage to the home or poor building methods that need to be corrected. It is our goal to minimize or limit change orders on the project. We realize our clients do not like surprises and neither do we. It disrupts the project timeline and increases the budget. We do no pad our prices to cover unforeseen expense. If there is a change order, we strive to be completely transparent with the additional scope of work and projected costs.
What type of projects do you work on?
While we advertise painting and tiling for new customers, we also specialize in pretty much every area of the home – from repairs, installations and upgrades, to full renovations and home remodeling.
Do you use subcontractors?
Most projects will not require subcontractors. However, depending on the scope of the project, electrical, plumbing, or building subcontractors may be required.
What is job site prep?
We always prep the space before we begin a project. We take job site prep very seriously to ensure quality and minimize clean-up after project completion.
Do I need to be at home during construction?
Being at home while we work on a project is completely up to you, but it isn’t necessary. We try our absolute best to not cause disruption to your daily routine. Most of our clients are at work, and in some cases, out of town during construction.
Will there be breaks in the project schedule?
We do our best to minimize the down time on your job. Our goal is to deliver your renovated space back to you as soon as possible. However, there can be breaks in the work depending on the phase of the project. In some cases, trades finish faster than the estimated timeframe for that phase. For example, if we finish demo and plumbing/electrical on Thursday we may not begin drywall until Monday. Another example is there can be a break in work after cabinets are installed while we are waiting for countertops to be fabricated and installed. Another predetermined break in your schedule is between substantial completion and final requests. At this point, we know you are ready to start using the space so please bear with us as we complete the final touches.
Are you hiring?
If you are interested in working with Zoe’s ProEdge Painting we may have full/part-time or seasonal work available. On the job training is provided, but applicants must demonstrate a strong interest in home improvement and an enthusiastic work ethic. Call us to inquire about possible openings.
Often times the last few days of work feel as long as the first couple weeks of construction. You have seen us transform your space from what it was to what it is going to be. When you see your space almost complete, it can be frustrating waiting on the last few details. Be patient! We are as excited as you are to complete the project, but please know those last few details can take time.
