At L3 Construction, we believe in a completely transparent process that keeps you in the driver’s seat of your Minnesota home renovation project from start to finish. We strive to treat every client with integrity and respect, delivering you the most skilled and professional service available.

Some variations will occur in specific circumstances; but overall, you can expect your experience with L3 Construction to resemble the process described below.

01

Get in Touch

Send us a detailed message through our website contact form. The more details and pictures you can send to help us see and understand your needs the better. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!

If for some reason you cannot send pictures through the contact form, you can send them separately after filling out the form to SALES@L3CONST.COM

02

Virtual Estimate

Based off your information, and after some discussion of your project needs and desires, we give you an estimate range in which your project should fall. NOTE: Many customers think it’s impossible for us to have an idea of what a job could cost without coming out to your home. With our more than two decades of interior remodeling experience and knowledge of current construction trends, most projects come out very close to the range we initially give in this stage. Of course, your product and material selections can have a major impact on the final number.

03

At-Home Consult

If you choose to move forward with us at L3 construction for your home renovation, we will meet with you at your home to obtain measurements, plan out the space, talk more about your expectations and wants, discuss options and understand the ultimate goal for your remodel. We will also inspect the areas and systems necessary to formulate a proper time and cost estimate, including everything we are able to see regarding the scope of work.

Design
Our design team can create or procure virtually anything you desire for your build or renovation. You also are able to stay connected with us to be active throughout the entire design process, all the way to agreeing on final plans.

04

Formulate a Proposal / Establish a Budget

We will give you a finalized quote on smaller projects in this stage. Larger projects typically require a Design and Estimation retainer. This retainer gets refunded back to you if you move forward with the project. We do this because of the large amount of time it takes to make every last decision, so there is a clear job scope on larger projects. It is common to invest 40 hours or more helping our clients make all the choices necessary for a successful home renovation project.

Also, in this stage we schedule our multiple subcontractors to view your electrical, plumbing, mechanical systems and more, so we know what will be required to complete the job successfully. Doing this homework now is key to reducing potential surprises that can add unplanned costs to your project. This step helps us keep your project on schedule and on budget. With L3 Construction, transparency with our clients is vital.

05

Setup your BuilderTrend Access

Set Up Your Buildertrend Project Management Access
In this stage we set up your account in our Buildertrend® Online System. You can use this app on your phone, tablet or on a computer’s web browser to sign your estimate, make your deposit and progress payments, approve change orders, view all the documents for the project, see progress pictures, view the schedule to see who is working on your home and their contact info, see and approve change orders and so much more!

In this step, we also walk through the space to be renovated and discuss our expectations for you and what you can expect from us during the construction process.

Construction
When construction begins, you receive up-to-date reports on our progress until the project is completed to your satisfaction. We work closely with you to dot all the ‘Is’ and cross all the ‘Ts’ until every detail is finished.

06

Renovations Begin

After signing the contract and taking the materials deposit, we confirm the schedule with our subs and then our team goes to work building your project according to our plan.

07

Complete the Project Punch List

As we get down to the final days of your project, we go over the space with you and create a final punch list to ensure every last detail meets with your total satisfaction.

08

Enjoy Your New Space!

Move into your new space and enjoy it with family and loved ones!
