Renovation ProcedureSuccess of renovation hinges on good planning. Depending at what stage your project is, DRL will insert itself into the project accordingly allowing you to maximize your budget and avoid rework.
Renovation Phase #1: Design and PlanningThe first phase is design and planning. Your home is pregnant with possibilities. We recommend working with an architect or design professional to help you with a master plan.
Renovation Phase #2: DemolitionThe second phase is demolition, when the work gets going. DRL will quickly execute the demolition and cleanup process. This phase can be difficult on the customer and we understand that and help you keep going and get through it.
Renovation Phase #3: FramingThe third phase is framing and DRL is excellent at framing. We take pride in providing some of the best framing capabilities in Toronto.
Renovation Phase #4: Electrical, Plumbing and HVACThe fourth phase can become long and tedious. For this reason, DRL partners with professionals that are budget friendly. The mechanical bones of your home are placed in the walls, ceilings and floors. We ask you in advance if you want a phone next to your bed or if you want an extra outlet or two in a closet. These small steps commonly overlooked, end up saving you costs of unnecessary rework.
Renovation Phase #5: PlasteringThe fifth phase is plastering. Differently from others, we enjoy plastering and when something is done with enjoyment, it is done with accuracy and professionalism. As the rough-in is completed and the inspector has given each tradesman "permission to cover," insulation is placed in the walls, followed by the right type of drywall that is then plastered. Plasterers take over the whole project the homeowner typically enters a new stage of panic. We make sure that you as the homeowner does not experience any gief with this tough stage of a renovation. At the end of each day, we allocate time to ensureing we leave your home in a livable state, free of unhealthy dusts and dirt that could get into other areas of your well kept home.
Renovation Phase #6: Finish WorkThe sixth phase is finish work: installations of cabinets and fixtures, finish carpentry, floor refinishing, painting and wallpaper. In this phase, the hard work begins to reveal itself into more visible and appealing results. DRL at this point is making sure the various sub-contractors can stream through the job without conflicting with each other. In a poorly planned project, this is the time of ultimate panic, when every tile color and doorknob represents a decision yet to be made, with all it's associated aesthetic and financial implications. DRL ensures that this stage does not become a struggle but instead become a fun decision making end-point of your project.
