FAQs for Building Your Dream Home

We understand that building or remodeling a home can be a daunting task, and we want to make the process as smooth as possible for you. In this article, we will address some of the most commonly asked questions about Renova Construction Group, and the overall new home build or addition process. Whether you're a first-time homebuyer or a seasoned investor, we hope these answers will provide valuable information and help you make an informed decision. Here's what you should know about home construction in Tampa Bay:

1. What are your service areas?


St. Petersburg




Hillsborough County

Manatee County

Pasco County (Wesley Chapel, Land O Lakes, Lutz, and Trinity)

Pinellas County (Palm Harbor, Dunedin, Safety Harbor, and the Pinellas Beaches)

Find out what areas your design-build company specializes in. This can be impactful for the process regarding permitting, subcontractor relationships, and overall timelines.

2. How soon can I receive a quote for my project?

Renova Construction Group uses a proprietary method for estimates and proposals allowing us to provide accurate same-day estimates.

When interviewing design-build companies, be sure to ask what the estimate process entails, the average accuracy of quotes to final costs in similar projects, and what factors may change the cost. This will reduce any surprises along the way.

3. Do you offer financing?

Yes, send us a message to get more details on our financing options.

If financing or creative options are essential to your project, make sure to review not just construction companies, but any 3rd party vendors as well to maintain high-level customer service and overall experience throughout your entire process.

4. How soon can you start my project?

For design-build projects, we typically initiate the design process within the first week after you sign up. The permitting process, on the other hand, may take anywhere from 3-12 weeks, depending on the project's complexity and the municipality's regulations. It's worth noting that some municipalities and project types may experience longer delays during permitting that are beyond our control.

As for paver driveways, we waste no time submitting your permit application within days of signing up. Generally, permit issuance takes approximately three weeks from the date of submission, but this timeline may vary depending on the project scope and the specific municipality's procedures.

Experienced companies should be able to provide you with realistic timelines based on your project details, as well as regular updates throughout the entire process. Be sure to ask companies about their communication process or frequency regardless of the stage of your project.

5. How long will my project take to complete?

The complexity of the design and the need for architects and engineers to stamp and seal can affect design timelines, which typically range from 2-6 weeks. For home renovations, the duration can vary from 6-16 weeks, depending on the level of detail and trades involved. Additions, on the other hand, typically take longer, with simple additions taking 3-6 months, while more complex structural scopes or those paired with renovations may require longer periods. Lastly, paver driveways can typically be completed in just one week for a standard driveway. By taking these factors into account, you can estimate how long your home or business project will take in the Tampa Bay area and plan accordingly.

6. What are other factors that can affect my project timeline?

The duration of your project's completion hinges on two factors: the scope of the renovation and the homeowner's adaptability to change. While some homeowners opt to reside on-site during the renovation process, others prefer to secure temporary housing accommodations until the project's finalization.
