THE HEARTBEAT OF OUR WORK STARTS WITH YOU

No matter how big or small the project, if you have a dream we’ll make that dream a reality. 

The first step is determining your scope of work, budget, and timelines. During this stage you'll sit down and discuss design ideas. Once these ideas are determined our designer will create a preliminary design complete with layouts and renders. We recommend every client to start their search on Houzz to get design ideas.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE A DREAM YOU CAN FIND IT ON HOUZZ

In the renovation and design industry, Houzz is life-changing. When you're planning a kitchen renovation, bathroom renovation, or condo renovation Houzz is the place to start.

Instead of going through hundreds of magazines for kitchen ideas, bathroom ideas, living room ideas, etc use Houzz.com. It is a place to browse and save beautiful home photos. However, more importantly Houzz allows our designers to see what your kitchen style or bathroom style might be. You could spend an hour trying to describe a space but it won't be fully portrayed until you see it in a picture. 

SOMETIMES YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU WANT UNTIL YOU SEE IT IN A PICTURE

Our designers are able to pick up patterns in the design style as you make an idea book, and then are able to apply that reoccurring design to match your space.

TO BUILD A PROJECT YOU NEED TO DESIGN IT FIRST

At Level One we start off every renovation with a design. That way we can find out exactly what you want, provide you with 3D renders so you know exact what you're getting before build starts. Often times it's hard to envision the space without some kind of 3D model to help you. You'll get these 3D Renders during the design process. However, more importantly design is used to help plan your renovation. To build a car you need to design it first. Same thing goes with any home project.

DESIGN DRAWINGS

The design drawings are a simple way to show your renovation from a plan view. Lines on a page can easily be moved to change the space to suit your needs. In the design world, we communicate by using drawings to express our thoughts. Later, these design drawings will be used to prepare your permit application

ORTHOGRAPHIC VIEWS

Orthographic views are 3D objects shown in 2D. This view embodies the exact shape of an object seen from one side at a time like you are looking perpendicularly to it without showing any depth to the object. By using this type of view, you are getting a detailed representation of how your project's appearance would looking after it is completed. With this feature, you are now able to accurately visualize your project and easily make any changes

3D RENDERING TECHNOLOGY

3D Rendering Technology allows you to see the vision of your space from space plan to material choice in a realistic 3D model. This takes the unknown out of the renovation process. Because now, what you see is what you get.

BEING A PROFESSIONAL BUILDER MEANS HAVING A WEALTH OF INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE

FOR 20 + YEARS WE'RE SOMEONE YOU CAN TRUST

For most people, your home is your single largest asset. In order to renovate, you must trust someone with your home and your dreams. That is a pretty scary thought! The person you will hire will be in your home and your life for weeks or even months. Choosing the right company is one of the most important decisions you may ever make. Therefore, you need a contractor you can trust. You need a professional. A professional that is certified by the Canadian Home Builders' Association, Greater Vancouver Home Builders' Association, Renomark, Better Business Bureau, and the National Kitchen & Bath Association. As a member of all five Associations, Level One is a professional contractor you can trust. 


PERMIT PROCESS

Once the design is signed and before we lift a hammer to start your renovation process we need to get the appropriate permits. Depending on the area of jurisdiction, it could take anywhere from 4-6 weeks. This includes submission of design to city hall for permits. Approval of a field review conducted by the city and a strata approval letter (if required).

BUILD PHASE I

After permits, our process starts with photographs of any previous damage and any general photos of the project. Hardboard is installed to cover the existing floors as well as plastic dust barriers and other site protection. 

After site protection, demolition begins by carefully removing any existing cabinets, appliances, etc. (depending on the project). Drywall is removed, bagged, and discarded. Any other materials are carefully loaded into one of our disposal vehicles.

With walls now exposed, all electrical and plumbing can be seen and evaluated for the project.

BUILD PHASE III

Once the inspection is completed, drywall is installed, taped, mudded, and finished. The flooring is usually installed in conjunction with drywalling phase. This includes any baseboards, tiling, casing, and trim. Once the above is completed, the floors are covered for priming and painting.

INSPECTION PHASE 1

Any changes to the plumbing, electrical, HVAC, and sprinklers are inspected by the city at the rough in phase before closing the walls. This process ensures that the mechanical portion of the project is completely safely and correctly.

BUILD PHASE II

Once drywall, painting, and flooring is completed we now install kitchen appliances, countertops, and cabinets. Bathroom fixtures are also installed simultaneously.

DEFICIENCIES + FINAL INSPECTIONS

After the project is completed, the client and the project manager will review the project for deficiencies. Once deficiencies are completed all plumbing, electrical, HVAC, and sprinklers are called for by the city. 

COMPLETION

Once deficiencies and final inspections are complete we give you the keys to a brand new home.
