Work with a local Waypoint dealer to make your dream project a reality.
From brainstorming to enjoying your new space, here’s what you can anticipate at each stage of your remodeling project.
When it comes to having contractors working in your home, we all want it over with as quickly as possible. Here’s what you can do to best prepare for what’s coming your way.
From wooden to painted, metal to glass, there are a lot of options, but not to worry: this is the fun part.
It can be overwhelming to try to do this yourself. That’s why we created a project estimator.
Work with a local Waypoint dealer to choose materials and options that best suit your dream project.
If this feels a bit tricky, feel free to reach out to a dealer if you want any help measuring your space.
Going in person gives you the chance to look at what you’re buying and also get answers to any questions you might have.
Or, let us do it for you. We’ve been through a lot of home renovation projects. Here’s our official list of what you need to do when.
Overscheduled inspectors can sometimes cause unexpected delays, so it’s good to stay on top of it.
The contractors are there, you’ve canceled your zoom meetings, everything is set, but…no work can happen because you’re still waiting on parts. Avoid delays by ordering ahead.
Flooring, hardware, countertops, sinks, and other complementary pieces should be ordered as early as your appliances.
After you know the size of your new appliances or sinks or floor, choose the cabinets you want that fit around what you’ve already bought or have. A dealer can help.
Inspect everything before you install it to ensure any replacement parts you need arrive in time. That way, you can save yourself any avoidable frustration down the line.
If the room you’re working on is a kitchen, you’ll need a backup spot for the duration of the project. Get water, possibly a hot plate, and definitely a friend on standby.
Get excited! Your new dream room is almost here. All that’s left to do at this phase is pack.
This may be the hardest part but it’s also the best part. You’ve planned what you wanted and ordered all the things you need. Now, it’s time to kick off the build.
This is when any existing cabinets or old appliances come out to make room for the new.
Walls come down. Windows go in. And, rough-in plumbing, mechanical, and electrical changes happen next.
This is when any pre-installation needs, like drywalling and painting, take place, so your cabinets move into a primed canvas.
This is what you’ve been waiting for since you first pulled together that inspiration board. Watch your new dream start to come to life, as cabinets, countertops, and new appliances are all installed.
This is the biggest part of your project. Your new, beautifully crafted cabinets will be carefully installed.
Once the cabinets are in, it’s time for measuring, fabricating, and placing your new countertops.
Your lighting and appliances are next. The pre-ordering and measuring you did earlier makes this step a breeze.
Accessorizing means you’re almost done. Add any hardware, and touch up any paint needs.
The intricacy of your backsplash will determine how long this penultimate step takes, but you can see the finish line.
Clean all the dust and dirt up, so the space is safe and ready for you and your family and friends to enjoy.
Your room is done. Congratulations! Time to sit back and congratulate yourself on turning your dream into a reality.
