Frequently Asked Questions About FSBD Projects

Starting a new exterior can be challenging. It’s hard to know which companies you can trust, how much money you will be investing, what the final project is going to look like and what factors go into the design process. We know you have questions, so we’re here to answer them! Here are our most frequently asked questions about FSBD projects.

How Does The Estimate Process Work?

As the first step  for your project, the estimate process is a crucial part of your project journey. When you schedule your free estimate with FSBD, one of our salesmen will come out to your home and meet with you. At this appointment, you will discuss your project goals, special features or materials you would like to include, your ideal budget, any apparent limitations or roadblocks, and anything you may be questioning regarding your project. He will also take measurements and pictures of the existing space. After your appointment is complete, the salesman will come back to our showroom and write up your proposal. Your proposal will be sent to you in the next week (unless specified by the salesman). Depending on the complexity of your project, he may even bring you into our showroom for a presentation.

How Will I Know What My Project Will Look Like?

FSBD offers rendering services! We can create incredibly realistic rendered photos and videos of what your project will look like. Renderings do not apply to every single job, but we do create drawings for every job, where you will be able to see the layout and colors of your project. Your salesman will bring you into our showroom to pick out your materials, colors, and anything extra associated with your project. 

What Payment Options Do You Offer?

FSBD works with 3 different financing companies each with unique plans to help you pick which option is best for you! You can see these options on our website underneath the ‘Finance Your New Project’ tab. If you decide not to go with financing, your payments will occur as you hit different milestones during your project. We accept checks and all major credit cards (credit cards do incur an additional 3.5% service fee).

How Long Will My Project Take?

The length of production  is different for every project and will be discussed with you by your salesman and your project manager. There are many factors that go into the timeframe of your project, including the permitting process, material delays, scheduling, etc. Our standard production time is 8-10 weeks, but in some cases, it could be shorter or longer.

Can I Start Multiple Projects At Once?

Absolutely! We have many clients that will start more than one project at a time. The timeframe for both projects may not align exactly, especially if you are starting an interior and an exterior project, but we can absolutely do 2 or more projects for you simultaneously.

Are You Able To Give Me Design Ideas?

Yes!
