A pre-project review and assessment from Visions Renovation Consulting will provide you with a detailed, completely un-biased report to help choose the right estimate and the right contractor for your renovation project.

Do you have a renovation in progress, but you are not sure it is being done right? Are there communication issues? Is the renovation progress different from what you expected? Is the agreed contract being followed?

Let Visions Renovation Consulting help. We will conduct a mid-project assessment and provide you with a detailed, completely un-biased, solution-based report.

Is the renovation completed and not everyone is sure if it was done as per the agreed contract, to industry standards? Were manufacturer recommendations followed? Are there issues with the results and you are at an impasse? Was it done right?

All project assessments start with a scheduled phone or video call with you to review your project needs and expectations, go over documents you have and find out what concerns you may have, and a scheduled follow up phone or video call to review your assessment and answer additional questions you may have.

GREG BLOOM

Owner

Hello, my name is Greg Bloom, the owner of Visions Renovation Consulting.
Have you or has anyone you know been involved with a residential renovation and had a terrible
experience before the project even began, during or when the project was completed?
Approximately 25% of all renovation projects go badly because of miscommunication, unmet
expectations, concerns about workmanship, or disputes over results or payments.
As a homeowner, co-op or strata board member, property manager or contractor what are your
options when you face these types of problems? Where can you turn for completely un-biased
residential renovation expertise, support, and solutions that fit your project?

Visions Renovation Consulting was started with three goals.

  1. Support and help homeowners make the right decision about their residential renovation project based on their needs, budgets, and values.
  2. Improve the residential renovation experience with professional project assessments providing clear, detailed project specific reports. To ensure the work is done right and goes above minimum industry standards.
  3. Support and help both homeowners and contractors find fair and reasonable solutions when
    they disagree.

REVIEWS

I'm a condo owner. Greg provided extremely helpful guidance to my strata council about seeking bids from contractors. His advice was very detailed, thorough, and very easy to understand. He gave us some insights and guidance we would not have gotten any other way. He's professional, friendly and extremely knowledgeable about construction and the building trades. I recommend him very highly.
