We, here at Duff Builders, view our homeowners as part of the construction team. We don’t just provide a service to you, we’re here working with you every step of the way.
You’ve been telling yourself that you are ready to make a change. Expand the family room, renovate the kitchen, finish the basement, or perhaps build your new home. But where do you go from here? At our initial meeting, we’ll spend time getting to know you and what’s most important to you in regards to your project. You’ll be guided through this early discovery phase as we identify your goals, discuss the scope of work, and evaluate your priorities for quality, budget, and time frame.
• What To Expect At Our First Meeting of the Remodeling Process
• What To Expect At Our First Meeting of the New Construction Process
You may have detailed drawings or a binder full of ideas for your building project. Maybe you only have a rough sketch drawn on a napkin. Or perhaps you have nothing but a simple desire to update or expand your existing home or build new. Whatever the case, we’re prepared to take your concepts and transform them into working plans. When it comes to your project’s design, we offer both a design/build process as well as the flexibility of working with plans you’ve acquired through an architect or building designer. Our design/build approach allows you to work closely with our in-house design team through the planning and design stage as well as all aspects of construction.
In many cases, you’ll receive preliminary drawings and a budgetary cost estimate to review and accept before we finalize any proposal. To provide the most accurate pricing for your project, specifics about the material and product selections will be reviewed in more detail. The final proposal will be refined as well as any revisions to the drawings that may have come up in the preliminary review.
The final documents will be prepared and presented for your review, including the final proposal, specifications of the scope of work, and drawings. We strive to provide you with the most detailed specifications and accurate costs so that you can make an informed decision about your project.
5. SCHEDULE & SELECTIONS
Once we have your final approval on the proposal and design of the project, we’ll get started creating a construction schedule. We will also start the process for obtaining permits, if required. During this pre-construction phase, you will be introduced to the Project Coordinator, who will walk you through any final selections required. This person will be your point of contact throughout the process, overseeing your project’s financial status, facilitating communication between the office and field workers, and tracking any changes that you may choose to make. In addition, you will have the opportunity to meet the Job Foreman assigned to the job who will be on site throughout the construction phase.
As construction is underway, we will continue to work with you to ensure that all your priorities are met and that the process goes smoothly. The Job Foreman will be overseeing the Duff Builders Construction Team and any subcontractors, as well as maintaining consistent communication with the design staff and Project Coordinator at the office. You will work closely with the Duff Builders team throughout the entire project, meeting periodically and reviewing the status of the construction.
We are always ready to address your questions and concerns in order to provide you with the most seamless and enjoyable building experience possible. Not only is this true throughout the building process, but also after your renovation, addition or new home is completed. We stand behind our warranty, and we’ll be here for you well after the last construction truck has left your home.
