Our Process

Design and Estimate
About - Process - Design and Estimate

Whether you’re planning to remodel your home, add an addition, or build one from the ground up, we understand that it can be hard to know where to start. Since 1991, the team at Dyksen and Sons has worked alongside our fellow Hoosiers to transform rooms, reinvent spaces, and add the finishing touches that make each house a home.


Our team has over 45 years of staff experience designing and estimating projects. Once you reach out to our team, we will first have a brief conversation to outlining your vision and needs. After that, we will conduct an onsite or in person meeting to further outlining details, develop baseline budget, brainstorm requirements, outline a timeline, and provide suggestions based on previous projects that fit into your vision. Then, we finalize those items and present a formal project proposal. At that point, we are ready to start the next phase our process.
