We work closely with our clients to craft design solutions that reflect their personal style. We recommend exploring examples of our work to determine the features that you like:
- Peruse the many options available on the Products pages of this website, and see our Specifications to identify solutions that meet your project's needs.
- View examples of our work and pick up color samples at one of our Showroom locations.
We can work with homeowners' simple sketches and ideas, as well as plans provided by the downloadable Design Worksheet, which can be emailed or faxed to us for a quick estimate. Be sure to include any drawings you already have with your email or fax.
We frequently work with plans provided by architects, designers and clients in the design and planning stages. We provide CAD plan-view drawings for each proposal. If the project warrants it, 3D drawings are generated for a small fee to translate the concept into visual form, (e.g., for fireplace or other multi-piece projects). See Example Project Drawings
Call us to discuss your project. Whether your project is a fireplace or any other custom concrete installation, or if you have any questions at all, we are happy to discuss it with you.
We will go over the choices available to you for color and sand mix selection, edge detail and grinding, establish a project timeline, and address any other questions you may have. We can also set up a meeting for more in-depth planning if desired.
We then provide a proposal for your project either by phone, email or fax. This acts as a contract which contains the price, timeline and description of your project, as well as, but not limited to, specifications for the color and finish selections, any custom options requested and any special structural bracing that may be required.
Once the proposal is accepted and your deposit fee is received, the scheduling begins and our Customer Pre-template Checklist is sent to you. All the steps that need to be accomplished by the customer and/or their building professional are delineated. This information is used in project planning and special ordering.
