Did you know that in 2021 only 36 % of remodels/renovations in the US stayed on budget?

36% on budget. WOW. Now yes there was a pandemic and inflation is certainly to blame as well. But we believe it's more than that and we're on a mission to change that. After all we all work hard for our money.

Contractors have learned that homeowners/business owners get overwhelmed with all the change orders and stop paying attention to the details, scope creep, material delays, supply chain issues and all of the sudden...your project is way over budget, running over the time planned and suddenly you're left holding the bill saying what happened?

When you are considering a remodel/renovation project ask yourself what is your time worth to you?

As project managers, we pride ourselves on:

  • vetting contractors and vendors for quality craftsmanship and punctuality

  • helping your project stay on time and on budget

  • scheduling the project from contract and design phase to completion

  • discussing change orders prior to execution

  • holding onsite meetings with key stakeholders

  • consistently communicating with homeowners and vendors.

  • meeting with inspectors so your general contractor can focus on other parts of the project

  • overseeing the budget and capture potential impacts to the budget before they happen

  • spending time researching products, materials, contractors, and locations and final finishes.

  • keeping the project organized

  • knowing who needs to be, responsible, accountable, consulted, and informed.

  • eliminating scope creep where possible.

and more.

We know Sonder Luxe Solution will change how your remodel or renovation will run and we’d love the opportunity to prove it to you, so schedule a call with us so we can help you take the risk and chaos out of your project. Here at Sonder Luxe Solutions we believe in the 3 C's approach to every project and love providing this standard to our clients.

It was a nightmare!

Have you ever had flooding under your flooring, that then came up into the room through the floor? Have you spent hours trying to find a contractor to fix it, tried fixing it yourself by replacing your luxury flooring, but couldn't get to the root of the problem before it happened again?

We had a client several years ago who had this exact problem. The house, built on a downhill slope, had all the rainwater from the neighborhood rushing under it and flooding the backyard as well.

It wasn't a pretty sight to behold. There was urgency to this project to prevent further damage to the interior. It appeared that there had not been oversight to the project and previous contractors only did bandaid repairs, they did not provide a long term solution.

Sonder Luxe Solutions was hired and we vetted and hired expert contractors to create a custom solution to 100% waterproof the problem once and for all. Steps in that process looked like:

  • Interviewing Contractors

  • Requesting Bids

  • Budget management and oversight

  • Having the contractors dig to the bottom of the foundation on multiple sides of the house.

  • Resealing and waterproofing the entire foundation of the house.

  • Getting the landscaper to add French drains and other drains around the yard to help alleviate the flow of water

  • Landscaping the yard back to pretty status at the end.

  • Resealing and raising the interior flooring.

  • Rewiring electrical outlets in the floor.

  • Closing up or sealing all entry holes and cracks in the floor and foundation.

  • Removing and backfill of the drain holes in the floor.

  • Painting and touch ups

  • Raising and installing new flooring

  • Installing new doors

  • Project clean up

  • Water testing multiple times before final sign off

Just to name a few...

The best part of this project was knowing we were able to create a realistic solution without our client having to stress over the details or try and manage the whole project on their own, and they were so happy with the final result.

At Sonder Luxe Solutions, we believe if your foundation has cracks, holes, or isn't strong at some point the flood waters will enter. This applies in business, personal life, or the literal foundation of your house as in our client’s case. And that's the take away from all of this.

We can help your renovation and remodel projects not turn into a nightmare that only has bandaid fixes. We go after the long term solution.

How would you manage a project like this?
