Careful planning and design are the keys to every successful project

Building an addition and remodeling your present space can add lasting value when designed consistent with the architectural lines and in proportion with the rest of your home and the homes in your neighborhood.

Plekkenpol Builders can help you to discover the optimum utilization of your space. A great design addresses your needs for function and comfort, matches your lifestyle, considers future changes and fits within your budget. Your Project Manager’s knowledge of building codes, regulations and standards will help determine the feasibility of the project.

Should you employ an Interior Designer?

With the quantity of product choices available, a professional Interior Designer can help enhance the outcome of your project. They understand the differences in quality, comparative scale of different items to be used, suitability of products for the conditions in which they’ll be used, compatibility of styles, colors and textures. They will interview you to learn about your objectives, your personality and style, and your likes and dislikes. They can accompany you to showrooms, bring potential products to you or simply make product selections for you. They will contribute as little or as much assistance as you would like whether you are doing a modest makeover or whole house remodel.

We have established relationships with many talented Interior Designers, each of whom has differing styles and expertise. Your Project Manager will be happy to recommend an Interior Designer that will be a good fit for you and your project.

Allowances and Selections

Whether you are making product selections on your own or with the assistance of your Project Manager or an Interior Designer, it is important that all selections are made promptly, as delayed selections are likely to cause delays in scheduling. It is important to visit showrooms to see and touch products and to inquire as to the care and necessary maintenance. Also, check out our Photo Gallery to gather ideas. To facilitate the selection process, your Project Manager will provide you with:

  • A list of the products that you need to select along with an allowance for those products.
  • A list of product showrooms where representatives will work with you to make selections.
