Our Design-Build Process | Home Renovations

At Wertz Home Improvement LLC in Annapolis, Maryland, our design-build concept offers you price and schedule control early in the process. As the homeowner, you can be assured that your needs and goals are matched with tailored budget and plan right from the start by unifying the responsibility for the project into one source: our design-build team. This reduces the chances of surprises or miscommunication during construction.

Comprehensive Construction Services

From the very beginning, we assume responsibility for all phases, including architectural, planning, site preparation, structural, mechanical and electrical engineering, as well as the actual construction. The design-build team creates partnership with not only the owner and the contractor, but also with the subcontractors and major suppliers for a project. Our company specializes in:

• Kitchens
• Waterproofing
• Windows & Doors
• Carpet & Hardwood Install & Finish

• Bathrooms
• Excavation
• Siding
• Expert Tiling
• Basements

• Roofing
• Framing
• ADA Compliance
• Interior & Exterior Renovations

The Process

The design-build concept means that the design of your home and physical construction are totally integrated. Communication is greatly improved from day one, throughout the entire project.
House Blueprint and Construction

Phase 1: Initial Consultation
A meeting is scheduled at your home or the project site to determine the scope of the project and other details, along with a ballpark budget for the proposed project.
Phase 2: Design Contract for Preliminary or Conceptual Design
We begin with a thorough site analysis, documentation of the existing conditions of your home, and include any zoning regulations, code, and historic preservation requirements for your particular site. Our company prepares detailed "as-built" drawings of your existing home as a first step. We'll also clarify project requirements, further refine your goals and needs, and propose a well-designed solution.
Phase 3: Design Development
With the homeowner's approval of the drawings and cost projection, we will continue with design development. This is the process required to complete construction drawings, specifications, finish selections, and specific language for your construction work to receive permits and to move forward with the project.

Phase 4: Construction
During production, your assigned team will manage and perform all of the construction work on your project. The project manager becomes your point person for all communications and is responsible for assembling and coordination of all materials and labor to get your project completed as soon as possible with quality results. Meetings are scheduled with you at certain production milestones. A "punch list" of minor defects and incomplete items will be jointly prepared and agreed upon, and when the listed items are completed, our contractual agreement will be considered 100 percent fulfilled.
