Floor Plan Submission
Step 2: Pricing Quotes and design
a) Should you want to move forward with an estimate, we will request a design deposit for your plan (most designs range from $200-$300 dependent upon size and complexity). This deposit is applied towards a purchase of materials (minimum purchase of $1,350).
b) Following approval of the design, we will provide you
with a final quote for all the products needed for the “concrete phase” and/or “above
grade” part of the project. This includes
the chosen panels needed for your system (ie. EZ Floor or Rad Board) along with
the Pex tubing as well as the pressure test kit (as applicable) or other supplies
needed during this phase of construction.
c) We will also provide you with a quote for system you will
need “above floor” to route the water and control your heating system. This includes PEX lines (above ground), fittings
and remote manifolds in addition to what we refer to as the radiant heat control
panel. We will GUIDE YOU on how to connect
these items to your floor lines and the control panel.
e) You can choose to move forward with all or even a part of a quote depending upon your needs. Let us know and we can move to the next step.
Note: The fee for the "design" without purchase or if you don't meet our minimum purchase requirement ($1,350) is generally between $200 and $300 per plan based on the size and complexity of the project. If you do not move forward with any of the quotes the design fee is not returned to you. A laminated copy of your design will be mailed to you.
Step 3: Purchase
To keep our prices down, all quotes are based on a cash/check payment type. We will send you an electronic invoice that you can click to pay directly from your bank account. We can accept credit card for an additional 2.5% fee.
We require a 50% deposit to reserve your materials with 100% of the order paid prior to shipment or delivery.
