The Design & Estimate Process

Lou Vaughn

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 unique business structure that works well for those who want something different. 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.

STOP – Projects That I Don’t Perform

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

  1. Updating Or Remodeling For Re-sale:  Most listing agents have a list of contractors for this. This is a great way to connect with that agent. I do have an alternative resource that may be able to help. You can email me for that info. if you would like.
  2. Condo Projects: The building’s management is often the folk that helps with this.
  3. Projects involving insurance claims.
  4. Projects involving designers, tradesmen, and vendors other than those that I currently work with.

STOP – 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.
