Communication Matters when You’re Remodeling Your Home

Communication matters! In fact, I would say that it is the foundation of a strong relationship with your design-build team. We’ve talked extensively about how important communication is between the homeowner and the contractor – from avoiding contractor horror stories to knowing your contractor will be a good advocate for you. 

We believe communication is a core part of the transparency and accountability we promise you, and while we value the importance of our communication with each homeowner, our internal communications among our team members are equally as important.

Behind-the-Scenes Communication Is Crucial

How our team communicates internally has a huge impact on your overall remodeling experience. Let’s say you meet with one of us and share your thoughts about what kind of functionality you want out of your home and maybe even express concerns over things you absolutely do not want changed. How frustrating would it be if the next time you saw someone from our team, you had to go through it all again, because they didn’t know what had already been done and said in planning your project? I know if I was the homeowner, it would be the worst, because remodeling is already an emotional rollercoaster.

Seattle Snowmageddon Demonstrates the Value of Team Communication

This past winter, Seattle had weather like we had not seen in 70 years. During the worst of the snowstorms, when the city came to a standstill, we were in the midst of four large projects. Because of the emphasis we place on our team communications, everyone on our team already knew the timeline and schedule for each of the projects. All of our partners, who are held to the same standards as Nip Tuck employees, were readily communicating their availability and capabilities during the storms. Even with transportation delays, debilitating weather, and losing a couple of days to being snowbound, because of our team communications and our team’s willingness to jump in and work on each project, all of the projects were completed on schedule.

How to Choose a Contractor Who Communicates Well

There are a lot of factors that go into choosing the right contractor for your home remodeling project, but one of the ways you should evaluate your potential contractors is on their ability to communicate – with you and with each other. How do you determine a contractor’s commitment to communication? Start with an interview.  Make sure you feel comfortable with the contractor’s communications with you. Do they listen? Do they hear you? Do they take pride in completing projects on time and on budget? Have other homeowners had a good experience with them?

Nip Tuck Makes Communication a Priority

We don’t just talk the talk – we walk the walk. We place high value on communication and transparency at Nip Tuck Remodeling.

Our project manager stays in constant communication with workers on the site and our clients via phone, text, and in-person visits. You never have to worry about repeating yourself or rehashing what you’ve already discussed with one team member, because we make sure our entire team stays updated to better serve you.

At Nip Tuck Remodeling, we take great pride in our work and value our client relationships above all.

We can’t wait to help you dream big. If you’re ready to take the next step in your home remodeling journey, let’s plan together.

Don't just take our word for it. Read what Tina Kettell from Kirkland, Washington had to say about Nip Tuck:

“From the very first meeting our expectation were not only met but exceeded. We have already recommended Nip Tuck to many friends and 2 have entered into contracts with Nip Tuck. We had an amazing experience that was ON TIME, On budget and On purpose. We had open communication and never felt we were not a valued customer.”

We believe communication is a core part of the transparency and accountability we promise you, and while we value the importance of our communication with each homeowner, our internal communications among our team members are equally as important.
