The Estimate Process

Lou Vaughn

It Starts With Design Work. Hi, Lou Vaughn here! Thank you for your interest in my estimate and remodeling services. I will be your space measure person, design assistant, estimator, and installer. It’s a business structure that works well for me and my clients. With that said, I’m typically working on estimates every evening so it may take a day or two for me to respond to your request. Your patience is greatly appreciated. Please read all to the following information prior to submitting your information.

Please Be Advised – Projects That I Don’t Perform

At this present time, I do not offer any design or installation services for the following projects.

  1. Remodeling For Re-sale: Your listing agents may have a list of contractors that they prefer to work with.
  2. Condo Projects: Your building’s management company is generally the folk that helps with this. He or she may have some contractors that they are familiar with.
  3. Insurance Claims: There are contractors that specialize in insurance work. Your claims adjuster generally has a list of them. 
  4. Projects involving designers and tradesmen other than those that I currently work with.

Please Be Advised – Lead Rule

Homes Built Prior To 1978 may have lead-based painted surfaces. Outside of “exclusions to the rule” defined by the EPA, any painted surfaces that may be disturbed from a proposed renovation must be tested for lead by a certified lead rule renovator. If the rule is required for compliance, then there are some particular safety guidelines in regards to the removal of lead-based painted surfaces. We do offer to perform a test for a minimal charge of $150.00. The hiring of Lou Vaughn for the test performed is strictly for the purpose of hiring us for your renovation. This testing will be done after the estimate. Please Go Here for more information pertaining to when the rule applies and compliance is required and what the rule states for exclusion.
