Initial Meeting- Whether its in-home or by phone, our first meeting is to go over the details of your project and establish a budget that we can both agree on. If you have a budget we can quickly let you know how we can help you. If you don't, we can help formulate one. (Please refer to our SERVICES page to help determine a budget)
Design-Some projects require little to no design work however there are projects that require specific in-house drawings or by a licensed architect. We handle each of these situations individually and in some situations a design agreement may be necessary.
Selections- Once we have established budget and agreed on a design; the next step is to make selections. Your selections will help us pinpoint an accurate estimate for your project.
Agreement-Once an agreement is made, we require a deposit to execute. In that agreement, we include start and end dates as well as a payment schedule.
HOA – If an HOA is present in your community, approvals may be required for exterior alterations prior to applying for township permits.
Permits- We apply and pay for all permits. We submit a receipt to homeowner for reimbursement.
Pre-Construction Meeting- We typically start projects on a Monday. We schedule a pre-construction meeting the week prior to introduce the carpenters to the homeowners. During this meeting we go over communication and the schedule. Initial payment is collected at this time.
Payment- Our payment schedule is outlined in our agreement and checks are collected each Friday during production. We can accept credit cards.
Change Orders-Changes orders are paid as they are agreed upon.
Punch List Items- Our goal is to not have any punch list items however if there are items that need attention we asked for them as they are discovered.
Wrap Up Meeting- After the township approves your final inspection and our client signs off that work is completed to their 100% satisfaction; we collect final payment.
