K&B Home Solutions builds and renovates luxury custom homes throughout the Bergen County area. Our reputation as a respected builder is founded on our commitment to provide individualized attention to each project, continuous focus on the smallest of details, and mission to make the construction process as seamless as possible.
When you work with K&B Home Solutions you get the expertise of a master design-build team with the accessibility and personal relationship of a smaller firm. Our team of professionals is able to handle all phases of construction, from concept, drawings and permits to foundation, trimwork, and finish selection. We like to think of ourselves as your construction concierge.
A successful home build or renovation is all in the details. That is why we developed the K&B 8-Step Process. This methodology, together with our experience and commitment to quality craftsmanship and outstanding service, ensures a smooth project.
To start the construction process, you will meet with our Director of Operations. Together, you will explore your vision, want-list, needs, and budget. We will review any architectural plans you may have or sketch out your concept as a springboard for the development of plans. To identify any possible zoning or variance issues, we will also review your survey.
Based on the information gathered during the initial meeting, we will create plans that incorporate the details you provided, along with a proposal covers all phases from start of project to final finishes.
After you had time to review the plans and proposal, we will meet with you to view the final design and sign the contract. The contract will outline the details of your project, from the type of foundation we will be installing to your finishes. Once agreed upon, the building process begins.
Should you need an Architect, we will have one begin the process of your professional architectural plans for submission to the town, along with your permit packet. Once submitted, our team will follow up with the town and handle all questions and items that are needed to get your approvals to start building.
While waiting for town approval, our Design Coordinator will assist you with your project selections. This will range from helping you chose your project finishes, from siding to fixtures, and locate specialty items. The Design Coordinator will also advise on lead times so that we can have everything ready to install as needed. Having these details finalized allows us to keep the project on target and within budget.
Near the project start date, we will have a pre-construction meeting. We will introduce you to your Project Manager and discuss your architectural drawings and contract. Our team will answer all your questions regarding the actual progression of the project and review expectations to ensure that we are all carrying through the same vision.
Once construction begins, your Project Manager will be onsite every day overseeing every aspect of your project. The Production/Field Assistant will help manage the project from within our office. Together, they will handle:
• Scheduling each phase of your project
• Reviewing each phase of the project with you and our team in detail
• Walk through of electrical, plumbing, locations of items
• Questions you may have
At the completion of your project we have a walk through, reviewing and addressing any final punch list items. We will also schedule all final inspections with your town to secure a certificate of occupancy.
