As Your Home Remodeling General Contractor You Can Count On Merrill

An award-winning general contractor for over 30 years, Merrill Contracting & Remodeling provides general contracting services for home remodeling to homeowners in Arlington, Alexandria, Falls Church, McLean, and Great Falls, Virginia.

General Contracting vs. Design-Build Remodeling

For home remodeling projects, Merrill Contracting & Remodeling provides both general contracting services as well as design-build remodeling services.

The primary difference between the two types of services is that:

  • When working on your project as your general contractor, we remodel your home according to plans developed by an architect you have selected and retained directly.
  • When you use our design-build home remodeling services, we handle all your project’s design and construction.

Unlike some remodelers who only provide design-build services, we also provide general contracting services because we believe our clients should have a choice and because some of our clients already have plans for their projects or have a favorite architect.

We Provide Added Value Not All General Contractors Can

Our clients appreciate how we add extra value to their projects as their general contractor, even before construction. This is because we can act as a second set of eyes on their project’s design which, at times, allows us to make cost-saving suggestions that don’t diminish the design integrity of their architect’s vision.

And as a company that knows costs better than most architects, we can provide general cost information about what is being considered or designed from the initial stages of design and then at key stages during the design process. This helps keep their project’s construction costs from getting way out of control. When this happens, homeowners sometimes have to pay their architect extra to scale back the design they fell in love with or cause them to go with a lower quality general contractor and select lower quality products and materials or both.

Lastly, while we may not provide design services on their project, the fact we provide and understand design allows us to better understand their architect’s intent.

Your Full-Service Home Remodeling General Contractor

We’re proud to serve as your general contractor for your home remodeling project from beginning to end.

We recommend you have us be part of your project’s team and involved in your project from the beginning. This way, we can provide you maximum value and help you control project costs.

And by doing so early in the process vs. after all the plans are completed, you and your architect can adjustment your plans when it is most cost-effective.
