What is your typical process for working with a new client?

Early in our company's development, we recognized that our clients needed a better approach to project planning. Our 4-step proven process allows us deliver a fulfilling remodeling experience: on-time and on-budget.

Our support begins with a phone conversation about your family's needs and the existing conditions of your home. If your project is a good match for us, we will schedule an initial site visit at your house to understand your ideas, goals, budget, and timing to define a basic scope for the project.

Before we move to the next step, your project consultant will review our design-build process in more detail to ensure your complete understanding in terms of initial budget, time and expectations. Then you will briefly meet with the design team where they will review our 360-degree video file of your home and present initial concept sketches. Once you feel comfortable with the direction of our initial design sketches, you will move to Full Design where you will explore your concept in more detail, discuss options for flow, structure, furniture layout, lighting, materials, and finishes. Our design process provides a great deal of client support and transparency.

Once you have signed the construction agreement, our team will meet to begin the pre-construction process: we finalize the construction documents, perform our final walkthroughs with trade partners; we purchase the custom materials from your selection sheet. Our seasoned construction managers, field staff and trade partners are trained and qualified professionals. They work closely with our designers even before construction begins to ensure efficiency, reduce costs, deliver design with quality craftsmanship.

The project isn't finished until you have had every opportunity to test it out. Our 2-year limited warranty leads our competition by leaps and bounds. We will take direct responsibility for most labor warranty issues and will help you handle your product warranties as well.

What do clients have to say about you?

This group has done almost all of the upgrades, renovations and repairs in my 1899 row home over the past 25 years. There have been many projects, from a kitchen total makeover, to investigating a basement leak and installing a french drain, to producing concave and convex walls and lots of other details in several rooms, to facade re-pointing and roof repair, to restoring a bedroom that had nearly been destroyed with 1960's paneling. From start to finish, each project has begun with attention to owner vision and preferences, timeline and budget as well as practical recommendations. They are very knowledgeable about older construction and how to work within its restrictions. I have especially respected their attention to preserving many interesting features in an old house while modernizing its function. The professionalism of their entire team demonstrates the level of pride they hold for their work. Last but not least, they have always been mindful of protecting the remainder of the house from dust and debris during their projects, including daily clean up. I cannot think of any other group I would want to work on my house!!!

I have worked with Bellweather for over 20 years, starting when it was a very small company and blossomed into the very sophisticated team and service of today. In all of these years, the hallmark has remained customer service, with immediate availability of staff for any question or concern. The workmanship, design and quality is superb—and I have been very pleased with all of my projects, from special windows, a deck, bathrooms, and floor and wall restoration. You cannot go wrong.

Bellweather performed a complete renovation of our Kitchen and Master Bathroom in the winter of 2020. We were thrilled with the result and constantly get compliments from friends & family about how much they love the redesigned space. The whole team was extremely dedicated to superior craftsmanship. As first-time home renovators, we found Bellweather's design-build approach to be extremely helpful to navigate each stage of the process. Stephanie helped translate our vision into sketches, Ryan provided great overall project management and Ian was a pleasure to work with on site each day. Their communication was excellent, even when the inevitable renovation hiccups occurred. We would definitely recommend Bellweather!
