Questions to Ask Your Architect

Whether it be a bathroom redesign or a full-home overhaul, enlisting the help of an Architect is an important part of the process. Here are 10 questions we encourage our clients to ask us before we begin working with them. Having this information can help minimize any surprises.

  1. What services does your firm provide?
  2. How does the architect establish fees?
  3. What are the steps in the design process?
  4. What do you see as important considerations or issues on my project?
  5. How long does the architect expect it to take to design my project?
  6. Who from the firm will I be working with on my project?
  7. What should we anticipate as a per square foot cost range?
  8. If the scope of the project changes later on, will there be any additional fees? If so how is that structured?
  9. Do you have any contractor recommendations?
  10. Are there any other issues we haven’t asked about?
