Residential FAQs

I’m ready to build, what now?

Obviously, the first thing you will need is property, the second is a home plan. If you are still trying to figure out your plan, that’s ok. We can help guide you through all the options with custom drafting services. After we know what you want, we will have a conversation about the level of finishes and your budget. From there, we can help guide you to finding the balance of cost vs. finishes within your budget. With the plan and budget finalized, we will provide you with a guaranteed price for the work and give you allowances for any final finish selections.  After this planning phase, we will move to construction during which you will be kept informed and proactively involved in making the final selections.

I need a room renovated, how much will you charge?

Honestly, that depends on decisions you make. We excel at giving options and letting you know what the impact of those options will have on the time and budget. It is our job to give you every available option so you can make informed decisions. Once you have narrowed the options to your preferences, we take a few days and carefully compile and estimate of the costs. We present those with options and allowances for any unknowns so you can still control the overall costs.

I think I have a mold problem, what can you tell me?

Yes. We are a Certified Mold Inspector. We can take air quality samples and have those analyzed by a certified lab. More important, however, is identifying the source of the mold. It doesn’t do anyone any good to go remove mold to only have it return. A proper inspection examines the entire situation. It’s our objective to permanently resolve issues by determining their source and making recommendations on how to fix the problem at that source.

My home is very old, do I have lead paint?

Homes built prior to 1978 require an EPA Certified Lead Renovator to conduct tests on the existing paint before renovation. If lead paint is present, specific guidelines must be followed by your renovator to ensure that material does not contaminate your home. We are certified to perform this type of work.

I want to add a room, is that possible?

That depends. Every lot has set back regulations. You must keep any structure a set distance from the front, back and side lot lines. In addition, the existence of any underground utilities and field lines could have a big impact. We are capable of researching these issues to ensure you remain compliant with government and subdivision regulations.

Can you add a 2nd floor to my home?

This is quite an invasive process on the overall home, but it can and has been done. We would love to meet with you, review your existing structure, and discuss the specifics on how this can be accomplished at your home.

I need financing, can you help?

Unfortunately, we do not do financing. We can, however, direct you to several lenders we have worked with in the past.

Do I have asbestos in my home?

Asbestos requires specialized testing. If you suspect you may have asbestos, it may require a certified contractor to remove it if it’s above a specified quantity. It’s best to have us look at the product in question and, if there’s any doubt, we can steer you to a qualified inspector to have the material tested and discuss what options there are.  Another option is to leave it in place and just encapsulate it, which would not require testing or removal.
