Purchasing a new home or renovating your existing one can be a rewarding and exciting experience, but it can also be one of the most stressful. With the paperwork involved in permitting, loans, costs, fees, blueprints, inspections, and the overall home buying and renovation process, it can be a daunting task to think about, especially with the sometimes confusing and time-consuming permitting process. “It can be confusing for those who may not know what to do, where to go and the steps involved — that’s why we are here to help,” said Kendall Wong, president of Asia Pacific Architectural Consultants LLC, or APAC LLC.

APAC LLC is a local, family owned and operated company that, under William Wong (architect and general contractor), has more than 30 combined years of experience to help homeowners, architectural firms and even contractors go through the sometimes painful permitting process from beginning to end. As a fully licensed architectural consulting firm, APAC works to make sure you have building permit solutions. Whether you need building permits for your residential or commercial project, run into problems with your permits in process or need help with design — including blueprints or 3D renderings — the services provided by APAC help to ease stresses by being that “one-stop shop” for everything related to your building project.

In utilizing the services of APAC, clients do not have to worry about taking time off from work to get permit paperwork completed, only to have to go back the next day or realize you were missing a document and then return yet again to get routed to another office. Those in the know trust APAC to worry about the legwork and headaches involved in that process.

“We were so thankful for APAC because as our second time renovating our home, the process was a lot faster than when we tried to do it ourselves. Our first time around we spent countless hours waiting at the Building Department and even had to take time off from work to get our permit started. It took months to get our permit ourselves and we wasted money in the process. Having APAC the second time around was a stress reliever, and having them there freed up our time so we could focus on the arrival of our newborn baby while they focused on our new nursery,” said clients Daniel and Michelle Chang.

First-time homeowners also benefit greatly from never having to worry about the overwhelming task of getting necessary paperwork done in time. “As first-time homeowners, it was very overwhelming when we wanted to renovate our home. It was frustrating trying to find a contractor and meeting the bank’s deadline. Having APAC reassured us that the process would be easy and fast — they were a one-stop shop for all of our building needs,” said clients Taylor and Jami Kimura.

APAC offers free consultations and will work with your budget on a fixed rate that is not only reasonable and affordable, but definitely worth your peace of mind. Give APAC a call today.
