Trade discounts passed on to you
Contractor trade discounts represent significant savings on your project. Unlike traditional contractors who pocket these trade discounts, we pass them directly to you. Having experience across multiple sub contractors and suppliers also means that we understand their pricing models and how much things should cost.
Architects who are on the same page
With BuildSmart, you get the benefit of working with architects who understand our process. Our architects know the difference between adding cost and adding value and are committed to finding targeted, cost-effective solutions. Unlike most architects, who charge by the hour, ours use an innovative fixed-fee approach.
The homeowner, no longer caught between a rock and a hard place.
You no longer have to choose between hiring a contractor or doing it yourself
The world of residential contracting is filled with distrust. Low-ball bids and hidden mark-ups mean that home owners are never really sure about the true cost of their project. Insider deals where sub-contractors and suppliers pass hidden rebates back to contractors are common. Meanwhile, homeowners endure innumerable delays while they juggle other projects. No wonder homeowners feel nervous. Rather than reluctantly hiring a contractor or using the trial and error method to try do it on your own, consider a different approach. By taking on some of the project responsibilities, home owners can save money while building equity and have the satisfaction of controlling their own project.
Remove the road blocks stopping you from doing your own project
Faced with the challenges of working with a contractor, many homeowners try to manage their own projects. There are numerous problems with trying to do this; homeowners don’t get trade discounts, making their projects more expensive, lack of experience with sub-contractors and suppliers leads to erratic results, not understanding construction and material specifications can mean picking the wrong materials, lack of familiarity with the process makes it hard to anticipate problems leading to expensive do over’s. BuildSmart acts as your guide through the remodeling and building process. Don’t go it alone, instead, leverage our professional management, understanding of construction materials and specifications, deep construction knowledge and trade and supplier discounts help you build your best project.
