If you’ve ever taken on a home construction project, you’ve probably heard the mantra that it’s always going to take longer and cost more than you anticipated. As a design and build firm, we work hard to ensure that is not your experience. A big part of the way we do that is through online construction estimates.

Prioritizing the Customer

From the processes we put in place to the values we uphold as a company, everything we do at Design Builders is meant to make the home construction process easier, more transparent, and more seamless for the customer. Our online design process includes providing online construction estimates, and was put in place specifically to make things easier for our clients.

Minimizing Our Carbon and Ecological Footprints

The online estimate process is an environmentally conscious practice. Rather than having to physically drive to a location, the meeting can simply be held online, using Go To Meeting.  All necessary information can be gathered through that meeting and our other virtual tools. By eliminating the need to meet in person, we’re cutting out the drive time to and from a face-to-face meeting for at least two parties, and that means less gas used and fewer emissions put into the air.

Increasing Process Efficiency

By doing all our construction estimates online, you don’t have to worry about the time needed to drive to an in-person meeting. You don’t have to worry about rescheduling because you suddenly got called out of town for work. Making dinner for the kids, their homework, other people coming over. You don’t even have to worry about scheduling meetings early because all you have to do is roll out of bed and log in to an online meeting. (We won’t even know if you’re in your pajamas!)

The increased efficiency of this online process ensures everything keeps moving and there aren’t any needless delays. Whether you decide to pursue the project to its completion or not, you’re guaranteed to have an accurate estimate in a timely manner.

Committing to Free Estimates

We understand that an estimate is the very first step in the process of a home construction project, and you won’t know if you want to proceed with that project until you have an idea of what it’s going to cost. That makes perfect sense. Given this, we are committed to never charging anyone to receive an estimate from us. You don’t pay anything until you’ve actually approved a project and contractually agreed to work with us.

Design Builders knows you have choices in design and build firms the Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, DC, area.  Our commitment to the online construction process, from the initial estimate to the final plan review, is just one way to distinguish ourselves in a crowded field.
