FAQ

Are you licensed and insured for the work you'll be doing here?
Yes. The State of Florida requires each trade to carry a specific license.
How long have you been in business?
The owner, Darren Gruner, has been in the design/build business since 1982. There is no project type in which he has not been involved.
Can you give me some cost estimates over the phone or do we need to meet?

Not really. It wouldn’t be fair to either of us if we did. Each job is different with its own unique conditions and site situations. All these factors can and will affect the cost to complete the work.

Will your company build or install the work you design?

Yes. There is nothing we can not handle. We will do all of the work within the design we prepare from start to finish. No need for you to call anyone else.

How much does a design cost?

Most project design costs start and rarely exceed $1,500.00. However, up to $1,000.00 can be credited back to you once we are hired to complete the work we designed. Certain restrictions apply. Ask for details.

How will the design be presented to me and what will be included?
Your design will be presented to you in 2D CAD (Computer Aided Design) format. All details, including, sizes, quantities and location will be clear to you.
Can I get other estimates from your design?

Yes. Once you pay for the design we prepare, you are free to hire anyone to do the work. We offer this option to prove that our goal is to help you achieve your goal within the budget we set together.

Will the designer who works with me see the project through until the end?
Yes. If you hire us to perform the work, our designer will be there every step of the way to ensure that each stage of the project is going as planned. However, if you decide to use someone else to do the work, we can discuss our cost to provide a visit for each stage.
Who will do the work for me once we approve the design?

We hope you use us! We would much rather do the work than design it. We are not only capable of handling every aspect of the project we design, we are experts and have been in the field for over 40 years.

When you start the job, will the work continue until finished?
Yes, we will not start your project until we are ready to continue through to the end. The only thing that can delay the project would be weather, unforeseen obstructions, product delay or homeowner changes or delay.
I am a visual person, is there a way for me to see what my project will look like before I make such a huge investment?
 Absolutely! Once we have completed your design in our CAD format, you may request a 3 Dimensional computerized design. Our 3D software program has helped thousands to envision what their project will look like before any work has begun.
Is there a charge for a 3D Design?

Yes. Most 3D designs are $500.00 and they offer amazing insight as to what your project will look like when its complete. Our state-of-the-art 3D design software offers you the next best thing to reality. You will virtually see the way the sun hits your house, trees and shade structures in real time. You’ll see how night lighting can offer your home an added layer of beauty and protection at night and you will almost feel the breeze you’ll see in the trees in your design.

 

Will you do any work without a design?

Not recommended. Since we all have our own experiences and envision things differently, its best that everything is clearly laid out in a design. This way everyone involved is on the exact same page. If you do not wish to pay for a design and your project is more than simply replacing a few shrubs or a walkway, nine times out of ten, you are setting yourself up for trouble. 

Will you be obtaining any necessary permits from the city for the work to be done?

Yes, that’s part of our job. We will check with your city to obtain the necessary licenses and permits. We will also call for the required inspections as needed and when completed. However, all permit fees will be your responsibility.

Is it ok if I try to complete some of the work myself?
Yes. You may opt to run any or all parts of the project we design for you. However, keep in mind that your design credit is only available if we do the work.
How will I receive your proposal?

Once you have approved and paid for the design, we will prepare written proposal for consideration.

When are you available to discuss my project?
We are always available. We keep our phones on 7 days a week, 365 a days a year. If you try to call and we do not answer, send us a text. You can rest assured you will get a response right away. Go ahead, give us a try. 561-284-9062
