Q: Is my project too small or too large?
A: No project is too large; we specialize in structural alterations, bathroom and kitchen renovations, additions and whole house renovations.
Q: What determines pricing for my project?
A: We don’t build for everyone. We build for you. Each project is unique and therefore has a unique price point based on numerous variables including current conditions of the home, type of project, materials used, home owner selections, etc.
Q: How long it will take to build my project?
A: Each job will have its own timeline based on materials chosen, timeframe to get those materials in stock, scope of work and existing conditions. During our Pre-Construction Conference our Production Manager and Salesman will be able to give you a personalized timeline.
Q: Can I do some of the work myself or provide the materials?
A: Yes, we love DIY’ers. We are happy to discuss the pros and cons of each of these with you in regards to your particular project.
Q: Do I need to board my pets while you are working on my home?
A: No; however, we ask that you secure your pets in another part of the home during construction. The loud noise and people in and out of the home can be worrisome for some pets and we want to keep them safe and happy.
Q: How do I know if my home has lead paint in it?
A: We are an EPA Lead-Safe Certified Firm. If your home was built before 1978 we will discuss with you testing and the safety practices that we use to keep you safe.
Q: Will I need a permit?
A: Most likely. We take care of securing all permits on your behalf.
Q: My project requires removing a load-bearing wall, is that something you can help with?
A: We specialize in structural modifications and have added support beams in many homes when removing a load-bearing wall.
Q: What do I need to do in my home to prepare for construction?
A: Remove personal items from the area that is to be renovated. Take picture frames and other items off the walls of the home to protect them from falling and breaking. We do our best to keep dust to a minimum by adding plastic sheets and floor protection around our renovation areas; but construction is messy, if you have any special items store them away from the construction area to keep them clean. We also recommend adding a dust-rated furnace filter during construction.
Q: I am concerned that my project ideas may price my home out of my neighborhood. How can I avoid this?
A: We have a licensed real estate agent on staff who can meet with you and explain the numbers for your home and your neighborhood. We want you to make a good decision for your family today and in the future.
