Remodeling Experts Since 1973

CGS Enterprises work with you to create a specific remodeling plan, which saves you time, money, and disappointment. Are you remodeling to boost your home’s resale value, or will you be staying put for years to come?  Determining what you want through a detailed and immersive process – before beginning your home remodel –  is the most important aspect of any remodeling project.

Projects include:

The Process

Planning and Design

This step includes laying out your budget, working with your designer and builder to communicate your vision, securing permits for the build and any other pre-planning steps. Your builder will also help you at this point to decide if or when you may need to relocate during your remodel.



You can’t build in the new without tearing out the old! Demolition can run a full range of intensity, from simply moving out old furniture and tearing down a few walls to a full gut which includes tearing out everything but key structural elements and your exterior walls.



The extent of this step is largely due to your plan. You may need to rebuild extensively, or this might only be framing in a few new walls.


Mechanicals/Plumbing/HVAC/ Electrical

This step includes all the “behind the scenes” elements and typically runs concurrently with rebuilding and framing. Basically, anything that needs to go inside floors, walls or ceilings will be completed in this step. It could include some minor adjustments to plumbing and electrical or could be a full rewiring or replumbing of your home.



Once everything has been reframed and rebuilt, all mechanicals are where they need to be and insulation is in place, drywall can go up. It will need to be taped and mudded, then the mud will then need to dry and be sanded. Once the walls are smooth, they’ll be ready for primer, paint or other finishes. Many contractors like to paint at this point so that drips or overspray are avoided on final finishes.



Sometimes we may want to wait until all paint is finished and dust is settled to do final floor installation. We’ll discuss this step with you and make sure it is at the right stage in your whole home remodel.



Anything that needs to be “fixed” into your space will be installed at this time. Kitchen and bathroom cabinets and fixtures will start to go in and you’ll really start to see your space coming together at this stage.



Refrigerators, stoves, dishwashers and any other appliances and mechanicals are installed at this stage. Your home is likely fully functional at this point, though there are some final elements missing.


Final Touches/Furniture

This is the stage where all the hard work starts to pay off visually. Backsplashes are installed, that perfect faucet you picked for the half bath goes in, wallpaper is put up, and accessories, art and furniture are moved in.
