Have you ever had a remodeling project done by a contractor that was excessively expensive and seemed to drag on? If you have experienced this, unfortunately, you are not alone.

Home remodeling projects that overstay their welcome in time and/or price are emotionally and even physically draining. Few people want months and months of construction crews in their homes, all while their bank accounts are being gouged.

We at JSB Home Solutions have devised a process that helps mitigate many of these issues that arise during remodeling projects. It’s called the S.M.A.R.T. Process. Our founder, Jeff Brown, came up with S.M.A.R.T. process 12 years ago as a way for homeowners to Save Money And Remodeling Time with their projects.

In this article, we’ll walk through what the JSB Home Solutions S.M.A.R.T. Process is, why it was created, and the potential pitfalls of the process. And by the end of this article, you will have a feel for whether or not the JSB S.M.A.R.T. Process is a good fit for you.

What is the S.M.A.R.T. Remodel Process?

The S.M.A.R.T. Process speeds up the timeline of the design phase as well as the timeline of the work without sacrificing quality of service or craftsmanship. It simply makes your life easier when it comes to remodeling.

Our process begins with an in-home consultation where your design consultant will listen to your vision and coach you through making selections from our catalogs of choices.  This saves time as opposed to running from one manufacturer to another, looking at hundreds upon hundreds of materials, colors, styles, etc. The S.M.A.R.T. Process saves you from this decision fatigue.  Our design teams have already done the heavy lifting and will only present you with the best quality products to ensure you get the most value out of your selections.

S.M.A.R.T. remodels take about a week or so to complete with JSB Home Solutions, a fraction of the time it would take a traditional remodel to complete a comparable project.  Because time is money, shorter project timelines often also come with smaller price tags.

What are some misconceptions of JSB’s S.M.A.R.T. Remodel Process?

With every remodeling process, people tend to make assumptions based on what they have heard or read.  We want to alleviate any misconceptions about our remodeling style so you can feel at ease working with us.

Misconception #1: The quality of products being used is compromised.

It is natural and easy to believe that quality of products being used are significantly less because of the quick timeline in which the work gets done.

Let us put your mind at ease:  We have made it our promise to not put anything in your home that we would not put in ours. We will never compromise on the quality of product that we put into our projects. We strive to provide the highest quality of product at the best possible value.

Misconception #2: The S.M.A.R.T. Remodel Process is perfect.

The home renovation process is imperfect, and we want to be transparent with you that the S.M.A.R.T. Process is the same. In every remodeling project, things can go wrong. What sets a remodeler apart is how they handle the problems that arise during a remodel.

For example, when removing an existing shower to the studs, and learning that the actual framing of the shower has been destroyed, and needs to be rebuilt – a remodeler has two options: Cover it up with the new drywall and act as if it didn’t happen, or bring the destroyed framing to the homeowners attention, and come up with an honest and accurate game plan moving forward. We will never cover up what needs to be repaired, or replaced, and we will always bring it to your attention, and work together to find a solution that works for all parties. These challenges can come with delays in the timeline or price changes that are less than ideal in the moment but are worth addressing for the future of the space.
