Our Home Remodeling Process

Character is one of the reasons people trust Rosseland Remodeling.  That’s something that doesn’t come about by accident. Character is a derivative of our home remodeling process because it points to who we are and how we stand out. Here’s how we go about our work.

Let’s Talk

When you contact us, we’ll schedule a visit to assess your project and discuss your plans and idea. At this stage, we answer initial questions, offer design suggestions and discuss your budget. The initial session is an opportunity for both contractor and client to share as much information as possible about the project’s feasibility.

We’ll answer questions, offer design suggestions and discuss budget guidelines. When you are comfortable with us and the budget guidelines you have set forth we will move forward to prepare a detailed proposal, which include allowance for all items you will select for your project.


Upon accepting our proposal, we’ll start the design process. Depending on the project, our kitchen designer or architect, or even both, will begin work with you on the design process. Construction does not start until everything meets with your final approval.


For many customers, this is the fun part of the home remodeling process, but it can also be one of the most stressful, too. It’s never too early to start shopping for appliances, counter-tops, tile, lights and plumbing fixtures. For the best outcome, select your appliances before design drawings are made to allow our designer to fully integrate them into your new kitchen design. We work with a number of vendors and suppliers who have showrooms and experts dedicated to helping you make the most out of your decisions.


While you shop, we will schedule your home remodeling project. We take care not to overbook our services and thus schedule jobs well ahead and during a time frame that fits your needs. Rosseland Remodeling will provide you with a written schedule that tells you when you can expect each facet of the job to be done. You’ll have the schedule far enough in advance to help minimize any other scheduling conflicts that may arise.

Building Permits

Rosseland Remodeling handles the entire building permit application and inspection process.  Depending on the scope of your kitchen remodeling, bathroom remodeling, basement remodeling or other home improvement project, you may need more than one type of permit and/or inspection. We are familiar with the building departments and their requirements in Chicago’s northwest and western suburbs and have great relationships with each.


Owner, Chris Rosseland, will be your contact during the entire home remodeling process and is personally responsible for the daily supervision and schedule. Chris ensures everything is done right. You can be comfortable knowing your family and home will be treated with the utmost care.

Your home isn’t just another jobsite. We never forget that we are guests in your home. We keep the remodeling area as clean and safe as possible. We also make it a point to be as unobtrusive as possible so you can go on with your daily life. Of course, you’ll have noise, sawdust, scrap and more, but we always try to minimize our impact and make cleaning up as important as every other aspect of the job. That’s why we strongly believe in the livable remodeling process.

Livable remodeling is the idea that home remodeling does not have to be a difficult process to live through. We utilize an air filter system that continually cleans the air of dust and particles stirred up during our work. We provide plastic dust barrier partitions to minimize the amount of construction particles that migrate to other areas of your home.

You’re Happy With Your Home Renovation Project

You’ll not only love what we do, you’ll be surprised at how easy it was. We’re not happy until you are 100% satisfied. Our long list of happy clients attests to our quality. We rely heavily on referrals and repeat business, so it’s extremely important that we exceed your expectations. Our reviews show that we take customer service seriously.
