Innovative Basement Design for Chevy Chase, Maryland Home
Sometimes basements are treated as an unnecessary add-on. This often dank and damp space in your home may seem more like a burden than an authentic part of your lovely home. That's the reason we enjoy working with our clients and assisting them in makeovers that are, in our opinion, outstanding. Where there was once an uninviting space, you can create a sleek and comfortable room of your choice.
Chevy Chase, MD is home to many historically-rich and character-filled homes. From time-to-time, owners are looking to add updated or renovated styles and designs to their already classically designed home elements.

When we discuss your plans, you will know that your goals, questions, and concerns are heard and understood by our team. We will stay within your budget, and your finished product will amaze and delight you. Our three core values will be first and foremost during your project: trust, communication, and quality.

We can change your basement into almost anything you can imagine.

Here are the highpoints of our procedure:
1. Get in Touch with Us
We will ask for some necessary information, and we will schedule a time to meet with you and your loved ones in your home. If needed, we will be joined by one of our architects or designers to answer the questions about what you must have and what you wish to have. We might also need a plat and legal description to remain aware of any lot or legal limitations.
2. Initial Meeting
Once we have gathered at your home, we will complete a walk-through to determine your "target investment amount." Usually, at this point, we can give you a ballpark figure of what the project will cost and discuss how that number fits into your estimated budget. This meeting is critical. We want to prevent surprises and ensure that everyone is on the same page.
3. Second Meeting
Our second meeting involves the signing of a Letter of Agreement. Once signed, the process of designing and pricing your renovation or remodel has begun. Now comes the fun part. You and our team start the discussion of which products are selected. We require a small fee when you sign your agreement letter. The payment is based upon the amount of work and time involved in producing a well-considered estimate. We can give you our price for sub-contracting our architect/design team if you so choose.
4. Measurements and Design
The architect and designer come to your home. They must ascertain the size of the space and create a preliminary sketch. Once the design work is completed, we will meet again as a group to review it and get feedback and approval from you.
A subcontractor preview allows our craftsmen to see your home and answer any questions you may have. Our subcontractors' expertise will enable us to receive feedback concerning:
- Suggestions for improvement
- Cost-saving ideas
- The feasibility of the project
6. Product Selection & Estimate
This step allows InSite Builders & Remodeling to create a more detailed estimate that is significantly more accurate. Now is also the time when we can provide options for that enable staying within your budget. It also allows you to create the space of your dreams.
7. Finalize Plans & Budget
Once everyone agrees on the schematic budget, updates on the scope of the project, and your selections, we will review the construction process with you in a way that is clear and concise. The architect will finalize your drawings; then subcontractors will review them again and revise estimates when needed.
8. Sign Contract
At this time, we will present and discuss the final contract to ensure it is what you want. This last step and all the others we have covered result in higher client satisfaction, fewer surprises or disappointments, and hopefully, a Client for Life.
