Top 7 Questions Answered
1. Are estimates free?
The initial estimate is free. If design services are needed there will be a fee.
2. Will I have sub-contractors going in and out of my house?
Our remodeling carpenters are all employed by my company. We do use sub-contractors when licensed trades are needed such as plumbing and electrical or specialty work like refinishing floors or certain types of tile jobs.
3. When can you get started?
This depends on the volume of work we have in the queue. During the winter months, we tend to be 4 to 6 weeks out. During busier times of the year, we could be 8 to 10 weeks out. There has been a growing shortage, nationally, of skilled labor so scaling up during busier times of the year is very difficult. We are constantly looking for new talented people but they are hard to find these days. That said, the team we have is solid, trustworthy, and hard-working.
4. What will I get from the estimator?
After the initial visit, the estimator will draw up a proposal that outlines the scope of the projects and allowances for items such as plumbing fixtures, flooring, and tile. It is best if he comes back to go over the proposal with you but if you prefer, the estimator can email it.
5. Do you provide design services?
We do provide design services. If you require professional design services we can provide it but it often isn’t required.
6. How will I pick out products?
We can either bring a sample of products to your home or our estimators or designers can meet you at the showrooms of our vendors.
7. What will it be like to have Mr. Remodeler working in my home?
Unlike many companies, the owner will be very involved in the management of your project. You don’t get handed off to a project manager after the sale. Your estimator, my field foreman, and I will be managing the day-to-day progress of your project. In most cases, you will have the same lead carpenter working on your project from the beginning through the final punchiest. During the construction process, the workmen will do their best to keep the mess contained to the area we are working in. Throughout the process, you will have your estimator’s cell phone number and mine as well. So if a problem comes up you will be working directly with the people who can do something about it.
