What type of projects are a good fit for TRS?
At The Remodel Studio, we believe in the importance of matching project scale with our expertise. Our team is highly skilled in executing a wide range of remodeling projects, ensuring efficiency and quality in every job. While we handle various project sizes, we maintain a focus on those that meet our minimum investment criteria. For detailed information on our minimums for bathroom and kitchen remodels, we invite you to explore the investment guidelines on our estimate page.
How long is the design and construction process?
It varies---not the answer you want to hear, but the truth. Design timelines, typically spanning 6-12 weeks, can vary based on client decision-making speed. The construction phase generally lasts 8-12 weeks, subject to scope and material availability. Notably, our team won't be in your home daily, ensuring minimal disruption. To facilitate smooth project flow, we offer an interactive software accessible on phone or desktop, centralizing all communication, documents, and updates, which is crucial for efficiently managing any unexpected delays or challenges in construction.
I am already working with a Kansas City interior designer, can I still hire you as my general contractor?
Big yes! Absolutely, you can engage us as your general contractor even if you're already working with a Kansas City interior designer. Our approach is to thoroughly review the scope of work and all construction documents provided by you. We're excited to collaborate with you once your designer has completed their part, including all renders and selections. Should your designer not cover renders or drawings, we're more than capable of handling that aspect of your project. Our goal is to ensure a seamless transition and to maintain the integrity of your vision, while we expertly manage the construction phase following your designer's groundwork.

How is the project managed?
Your project is managed with the utmost attention to detail and professionalism. At the core of our management approach is a dedicated Project Manager (PM), who plays a vital role in overseeing your project's progress. The PM maintains daily logs, ensuring that every aspect of the construction process is meticulously documented. This includes capturing daily site photos, providing you with a visual record of the ongoing work and ensuring transparency at every stage.
Additionally, our PM conducts regular trade inspections at every significant milestone. These inspections are critical for maintaining our high standards of quality and ensuring that every phase of the project aligns with our commitment to excellence. These inspections are thoroughly documented, providing a written record of progress and compliance with all requirements.
We also place a strong emphasis on screening and vetting all individuals involved in your project. This rigorous screening process ensures that every team member, from tradespeople to subcontractors, meets our high standards of skill, professionalism, and reliability. By maintaining these strict standards, we ensure that your project is in the best hands, managed efficiently, and executed to perfection.
Can I hire my own subcontractors?
Regrettably, we are unable to incorporate subcontractors hired externally into our projects. The high standard of our work, along with the streamlined and pleasant construction experience we provide, is built upon the collaboration of our closely-knit, experienced team, following our tried-and-tested operational procedures. Bringing in subcontractors from outside our established team could compromise this dynamic and the quality of the build, which is something we cautiously avoid.
