Why does KBF by Audi require that a client provide a budget for his/her project in the inital interview phase before scheduling an in-home consultation estimate?

Great Question! Consider this: Would you go on a job interview without FIRST knowing the job requirements or salary offered? Would you purchase a vehicle without FIRST finding out how much it costs? The likely answer to both of those questions is: Absolutely not! That is why we require a budget up front. Our Clients are so much more than a job or a purchase to KBF by Audi, and if your remodeling needs complement our own, we will put in 110% effort to make sure you happy and satisfied with our company!

The KBF by Audi process allows our design team and clients to explore design options and work out the many details before construction starts. Having all the details documented and clarified in our construction drawings allows KBF by Audi to provide clients with fixed-price construction contracts. If a change is required, either client driven or by an unforeseen condition, it will be easily handled with a standard form we call “Change Order Form” (CF). We encourage our clients to have minimal changes to avoid project delays or cost overruns.
