[su_spoiler title=”Avoid Unexpected Costs”]
Avoid costly change orders
Our complete and accurate drawings & specifications prevent costly change orders during construction. Incomplete or basic drawings leave holes in the plans that may lead to costly change orders. One client bid their project without paying us to create complete drawings & specifications. During construction the contractor issued $50,000 in change orders.
Reduce Your Remodeling Stress. Avoid the stress and frustration of unexpected additional costs
Avoid thousands of dollars in change orders

[su_spoiler title=”Less Stress”]
We’ll Prevent Construction Delays, Over-Paying for your Remodel, and Building Errors
When you hire Renovation Design Group your architect helps make the myriad of remodeling decisions easy and includes them in complete drawings and specifications before the stress of construction delays begins.
When combined with our complete set of drawings and specifications, our bid review service routinely uncovers thousands of dollars of savings. We find missing, incomplete or unnecessary bid items and get them corrected so that you don’t overpay for your remodel.
Your architect will stand up for you during construction to help resolve issues, discover problems that you cannot see, and resolve the issue with the contractor. During one site visit, the architect discovered that a footing was poured two feet short which was easily fixed at that point. If the error had not been discovered early, the smaller home would have been worth $16,000 less and would have been much less functional. Our Construction Observation service may save you thousands, but more importantly will resolve errors in order to get your home built to your complete satisfaction.
You can relax, because we’ve got you covered.
“Besides the initial architectural work, my Architect’s assistance dealing with the contractor after problems arose during construction was very helpful!” ~ Susan P.
“What was most valuable to me was having a professional monitor the remodeling work – as well, of course, as designing it. I have recommended the firm to two people already and will continue to do so.” ~ Ann L.
“Renovation Design Group was very personable and easy to work with. They were always very professional and quick to respond to our concerns and issue with the City and building permit problems. We love the designs we were given and were impressed with how well the Architect knew what would work with our neighborhood.” ~ Kris P.
“Renovation Design Group kept the project in line with fitting into the neighborhood and keeping the plans flexible enough for unforeseen problems in the renovation . . . the results look fantastic!” ~ Robert J.

You’ll be happy you hired us!
“Renovation Design knows how to take the proper steps to minimize problems during design and construction. They know their niche very well and have great customer service.” ~ Ty R.
“Renovation Design has changed my life. The house they designed just for me helps me and my family live life better. I can be more efficient as a mommy — I can be baking bread and doing something on the computer, and I used to just forget about the laundry. Things get done because my house is more efficiently laid out and it matches my needs. Now we make the most of our outdoor living space. I love my house. I got everything I envisioned. It is amazing how Renovation really makes it happen the way you want. I can say they really changed my life.” ~ Robin G.
“Their quality of work was important to me, but they are good at everything; presentation, design, customer care.” ~ Lindsay D.
“Everyone on the Renovation Team performed extremely well. The firm respects the neighborhood’s inherent design features. They operate with professionalism while maintaining a personal touch. Our Architect did a fantastic job of incorporating our ideas and vision into the final plans. We have referred ten or more people to her already. We are continually thankful for deciding to involve our Architect in our design process, she really captured our ideas and made our redesigned home flow and function to our desires.” ~ Greg L.
“I appreciated our architect’s upfront candor and enthusiasm and her willingness to consider ideas that other architects weren’t willing to consider.” ~ Annon.
“For years we have wasted a lot of time and money trying to remodel our home piecemeal. As soon as one project was completed we’d realize it would have to be torn out in order to make another idea work. Now we have a house that makes sense and looks great on the inside and outside. I have referred ten or more people to them so far. I would recommend them to anyone.” ~ Martin B.[/su_spoiler]

Have No Regrets, We’ll Prevent Serious Problems
From an architectural standpoint, the stucco home above leaves something to be desired. The massing is wrong, it’s a hodgepodge of several different styles, and resembles an apartment complex more than a single family home. From a neighborhood standpoint, it was a nightmare — creating severe animosity between the homeowner and most of the neighbors. The political result was a neighborhood backlash against the city which culminated in a city-wide rezoning of Salt Lake City to prevent it from happening again. And as an investment, the design left the resale value far below it’s potential.
Although an extreme example, there are almost endless both minor and quite significant regrets that can be had after undertaking a renovation. Incomplete planning and inexperience is what leads to serious compromises to the success of any project.
Our expertise and experience resolve serious problems before they happen. In the end, almost overwhelmingly our clients report their satisfaction with their remodeling experience.
“Our only regret is that we didn’t do this years ago.” ~ Donna B.
“This really was an ideal project. Not only did it come together well, our purposes for remodeling the home were fulfilled, we love the home, and have yet to come up with anything we wish we would have done differently. Thanks so much for your collaborative help.” ~ Florie J.
“Our project was definitely a success. It’s seamless . . . I couldn’t have done this remodel without an architect. It would have been impossible.” ~ Jennie B.
“Renovation Design’s team atmosphere and the variety of choice in both the scale of work and the project cost were most valuable to me. I had high expectations and they were all met.” ~ Cathy M.
- Avoid the stress and frustration of:
- Discovering that the city will not let you build what you want
- Delays associated with getting a permit because of incomplete drawings
- Poor structural coordination that results in a structural beam, column, or truss that ruins a view, circulation path, or aesthetic goal
- Water damage and energy inefficiency from inadequate building methods or materials
Proper planning for structural issues, zoning compliance, building methods, and building materials results in the overall success of the project without any regrets.[/su_spoiler]

Our Design Expertise will Increase Your Home’s Resale Value, and Save Expenses
Home 1 & 2 (above) were similar before they were each remodeled. The one on the right was designed by Renovation Design Group. Each is comparable in size, bedrooms, and bathrooms after the remodel but the one designed by Renovation Design Group has a much higher resale value.
Our Bid Review service saves expenses. One client saved over $10,000 from a bid review when the architect saw a way to re-bid the tile work. Another wanted to proceed with a bid that seemed attractive until the architect found $30,000 worth of work missing from the bid.
Our services will save expenses while making your home more appealing to future buyers so that it will sell for more money. In addition, you’ll enjoy living there much more in the mean time.

“When we met Annie, I could just see in her eyes that she immediately had ideas and that she knew they could do this. Now our beautiful new home has literally changed our lives. Our family now has a place to gather together, and our children bring their friends home to play.
