At any stage of your building or remodeling project, you can count on Advanced ESI to help you with your audio / video, security, lighting, and automation needs. The earlier you bring us in, the more options we will have available for you.
1. Planning and Design
This is the best time to work with us. If you do not have blueprints yet, we can provide you with ideas to influence your design plans. If you do have blueprints, we can use them to plan a system for any part of your home.
2. Beginning Construction
Still a good time to work with us as we can implement many ideas after the electricians finish their work. You still have plenty of design options available that we can implement.
3. Pre-Wire Phase
This is when we do most of our installation work after the planning stages. If you have reached this point without planning from us, we can move quickly to give you the best options available.
4. Drywall Phase
Our options are limited to existing rooms. Stud placements are fixed and running certain wires becomes difficult. It is still better to involve us at this stage than at later stages.
There may be some limits without resorting to major renovation work, but we can still design and install numerous options for your home entertainment, automation, and security needs.
6. Completely Decorated
We can still install a custom system that fits your home's new look. We do all the work and clean everything up like we were never there.
