Pre Construction Check list


What to Expect When You Remodel


 Your know how big a renovation project is and that it is a very big investment on your part.  We want to thank you in advance for trusting us with your home.  We pride ourselves in working as a team with our customers.  Please look over this check list, so that together we can make this exactly what we both dream this will be.


  • Dust – Just about everything we do will generate dust.  We make every effort to reduce as much dust when doing your remodeling project, though 100% containment is impossible, it will be our priority to limit what we can.   We do recommend you change your furnace filter often.  We will cover everything that you tell us to and what we see could be affected.   Please let us know about any family heirlooms or special possessions that need special attention.

  • Hours of Work – We will sit down with you and talk to you about a schedule that will work for the both of us.      So, you know what you can count on.

  • Clean up – It is our intention to leave your job with a spot clean at the end of each day.

  • Schedules – We will sit down and go over schedules so both parties are on the same page.

  • Delays – Some projects encounter a few delays.  Our remodeling contractor does everything we can to keep delays to a minimum. 

  • Payments of Invoices – Invoices will be mailed and payment is due upon receipt.  Prompt payment is expected and appreciated, as well as necessary to avoid any disruption in work.  We pay our costs, labor, and materials from our payments and appreciate your help in this matter.

  • Children – A construction site could pose various dangers to children.  We ask that children not be allowed on the construction site, especially during work hours.  If it is necessary for children to be either in or around work areas at any time, we ask that they be closely supervised.

  • Pets – Remodeling can be a trying experience on your pet.  We will try to accommodate your pet as best as possible.  Please inform us what to do if your pet “gets out” and any gates/doors that need to be kept closed.

  • Parking – We will want to know what you are comfortable with when it comes to parking.  Please think of where is the best place for us to park in proximity to the entrance.   We don't want to be in your way, but please keep in mind that we need to be close to the house. 

  • Preparing For Your Job – Our remodeling contractors will gladly move the larger items: i.e., refrigerator, stove, etc.  We ask that you clean out all cabinets and small items affected by the work: wall hangings, knick-knacks, etc.  Let us know where we can move the larger items and we will let you know which walls could be affected that you may not have considered.

  • Trash Disposal – We will either set a dumpster or establish a trash pile for regular pickup by our own dump truck.  A suitable location for trash (a dumpster) should be established.

  • Landscaping – During the normal course of construction, damage to the driveway, curbs, sidewalks, patios, adjoining plantings and sod may be beyond the control of the contractor. The remodeling contractors are not responsible for this damage but will make every effort to avoid or minimize such damage as best as possible.

  • Communication-  A correspondence should be sent to Brad at

  • Material Storage – An area, usually one side of the garage, should be selected to store salvaged material and new materials delivered.

  • Conduct – All people working on your project are expected to keep their shirts on at all times, keep radios at a low volume, smoke only in their vehicles and dispose of cigarettes properly, refrain from any obscenities and clean up after themselves. Please notify the production manager if any of these expectations are not being met.

  • Change Orders – Change orders will be priced and presented for approval prior to commencement of additional work.  Any necessary schedule adjustments will be made to reflect the change order.

  • Code Requirements – If code work appears that was not specified (electrical, plumbing, etc.), this work will be completed by means of a change order.

  • Yard Signs – We would like your permission to set one of our signs in your yard.  This sign not only helps our company generate business, but it also gives your neighbors our phone number in case they have any problems or concerns regarding our activity in the neighborhood.  The sign also serves as a marker for material deliveries

  • Pictures – It is our intention to take pictures of each project prior to the start of the job and at its conclusion.  Upon completion of the project, the design consultant will schedule a time with you for “After” pictures.  With your permission, your pictures may show up on our web site.

  • Post Construction – During your job normal and standard construction practices and techniques will be followed.  These practices are based on all existing conditions being standard.  However, not all current conditions will be normal.

  • The concrete installed on your job is likely to crack, chip and/or pit.  De-icer placed by you or brought in on your car will cause the concrete to spall or scale.  The concrete should be sealed by the client after the concrete has cured (minimum of 28 days).

  • ROOFING CUSTOMERS: Please advise us of anything that in your attic that is in direct contact or close proximity to the decking of your roof (ex. wires, freeon lines, etc). This will enable us to properly instruct our crews and make the aware of areas that require extra precaution.
