Consulting

With Built By You at your side you can confidently manage any remodeling project. You determine the amount of input and advice Built By You contributes to your project by selecting a desired level of service.

Perhaps you have previous remodeling or construction experience and feel knowledgeable enough to take on more of the project responsibilities…then Level One or Two might fit your needs. Maybe your last project did not go so well and you would rather have more input during the process, or maybe you have no construction experience at all…Level Two or Three will give you the certainty from start to finish that you can have a successful building process.

Choosing a level of service within your comfort zone is essential to beginning your project on the right foot. Scheduling an appointment with a Built By You advisor to discuss the levels of service in more detail is another step in a successful game plan!
