Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to Common Questions We've Had From Clients Over the Years

1. Does HCI charge for estimates?

HCI does not charge for estimates. 

2. How much money is required to begin the remodeling process?

Depending on the project, up to 10% is required once a contract is signed. The start up cost simply stabilizes the project and helps pay for the initial materials. From there, HCI uses its many well respected connections throughout San Diego to keep the costs as low as possible. After the project is completed and additional details are added, full payment is due. 

3. How do I determine a budget for my remodel?

There is no precise way to determine a budget, whether it be small or large. When plans are made, HCI can visit your home for a free, no obligation consultation to determine a "bid" or ballpark price for your project. From here, HCI will use its many resources to keep that price as low as possible without sacrificing quality or style.
