FAQs

Can I live in the property while you work?

Depending on the scope of work, yes! We go to great lengths to contain our work to the specific part of the home or building being renovated. When work begins, we install floor protection and set up barriers around the construction area to keep your home clean. When work ends, we offer a professional cleaning free of charge.

Do you offer a guarantee for your work?

We believe in doing quality work the first time around. However, if concerns arise, we stand behind our completed work with a 1-Year limited warranty. We value your business and want to be your first call on the next project!

Do you work in mid-rise and high-rise buildings?

We have extensive experience working with mid and high rise management companies and condominium boards. We are familiar with the rules governing construction in large multifamily buildings and the materials necessary to ensure the job is done right.

How does project payment work?

On projects under $100K, we request 50% of the overall job cost prior to initiating the job with 50% upon satisfactory completion of the project.

On projects over $100K, we request 40% of the overall job cost prior to initiating the job with 40% paid upon completion of rough carpentry and trades and 20% upon satisfactory completion of the project.

For your convenience, we do accept online payment through QuickBooks online invoicing or by certified check.

How much do you charge for an Estimate?

Estimates are Free! Let one of our qualified contractors come out to your home or project, discuss your vision and present a comprehensive and complimentary cost estimate.

How long will it take to complete my job?

As part of our comprehensive estimate, we will provide a job length estimate based on our years of project experience.

What is a Change Order?

Once we have agreed on the work to be performed, you may want to make changes along the way. Those changes and the difference in price that accompany them are called Change Orders.

What is a Lien Waiver?

When the project is complete, we will present a lien waiver to you in exchange for a release of liability and final payment. A Lien Waiver waives the contractor’s right to seek payment in the future for work performed. You should always request a lien waiver once work has been completed.

What should I expect after the initial walk-through?

Expect to receive within 5-business-days a comprehensive estimate outlining the specific scope of work to be completed, the cost estimate and payment schedule, the estimated timeline and contractual disclosures along with a State of Illinois Consumer Rights Brochure.

What should I expect when we meet?

First, expect a professional! We take pride in our appearance and punctuality. Next, expect to review the existing structure or space with our representative and discuss your vision and your purpose for the project. If you have pictures of similar projects you like, we’d like to see them. If not, we have plenty of examples of past work to show you.

Why do you take pictures of the jobsite?

As you can see, we are very proud of transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary. We take photos along the journey to document that transformation for you and our future clients.

Can you manage my building when work is completed?

We offer a complete suite of management services. Click the link to find out more!
