Brent Moore and the team at Moore Home Remodeling created this streamlined kitchen for one Bay Village homeowner. Crucial to the project was advanced planning and good design.Published: 08/14/2012

You’ve decided to go ahead and have your kitchen renovated, but the excitement of the project is dampened by two little glitches.

Who’s going to design it, and, who’s going to do the work?

It’s not an insurmountable challenge to hire a remodeling professional. But it’s trickier to find a professional who understands the design behind the finished project and then has at his disposal a team of trusted tradesmen who enter and exit your project like a well-choreographed dance troupe.

Brent Moore, owner of Moore Home Remodeling, says that hiring a design build firm is crucial to getting the result you’re looking for.

“So many homeowners decide to do a remodel and then go out for bids. We tell them we can’t give them a realistic bid without doing the design first,” Brent explains. “It’s nearly impossible to know what a project is going to cost before the homeowner picks out the tile, countertops, cabinetry and flooring. And you can’t pick out your materials without a terrific design. Everything works together, and by including the design as an integral part of the process, I find that my clients are happier and make fewer changes as the project moves on. There are also fewer budgetary surprises.”

“It might seem contradictory, but you don’t really want an estimate,” he continues. “Your project isn’t just about the number. Naturally everyone has a budget, but the best way to plan a project is to create a design by considering your goals for aesthetics, function and investment. Then we can tweak it and help you make selections that work within your budget to achieve the look and feel you desire.”

Diana Phillips helps to guide clients through the myriad of product choices. For additions, in-house residential designer Brian is there every step the way.

“Brian is so thorough and is an expert at designing additions,” Brent relates. “Our clients love that he is there for them when decisions need to be made.”

Here’s how to have Moore Home Remodeling get started on your project:
1) The process starts when you call. The MHR team begins gathering relevant information, making suggestions, and educating homeowners from the very first call.

2) Then, after a complimentary, professional consultation, they’re better able to determine if the project will fit within the desired investment amount and a cost range is developed.

3) Now comes the design phase. The team will create a plan that matches your vision. They’ll even craft a 3-D computer generated visual so you can really experience the look of your new space. During this phase, you will also make your selections and nail down the project cost—a crucial step toward preventing surprises in the end.

4) Once all of the selections have been made and the numbers have been tallied, you’ll sign a contract and the work begins.

“We like to think that we’re ahead of the curve,” Brent smiles. “Things have changed and people are more conscious than ever of who they’re doing business with. They are less inclined to spend their money on garbage. That’s worked out  ell for us. Since 95% of our work is custom, our clients get exactly what they want. We’re not trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. We’re making the peg and the hole to match perfectly for you.”

Brent provides his clients with access to quality products, like the Haas line of cabinets. “The Haas family has been in business for three generations,” he explains.

“Haas cabinets are very competitively priced, offer exceptional quality, and allow for a number of upgrades that would cost extra in other cabinet brands.,” Brent continues. “Our clients really love them.”

Brent says that in order to get your project completed in time for the holidays, now is the time to call. “A busy contractor is a good contractor, and we’re busy,” he smiles. “I think that says a lot about the quality of what we do.”
