Step 1 - Initial Onsite Consultation
We begin with our project evaluation and preliminary estimate, where we meet with the client at their location and take job site measurements and discuss all details of what the client wants. Later, a detailed intake list is prepared. We offer free design services and assistance with selecting every detail of project.
Step 2 - Design & Bidding Process
Plans are designed and a detailed estimate and written contract is written. This bid is then presented to the client for approval and any revisions are made at this point. If the bid is accepted, we collect the first deposit and begin construction. The project is started within 7-10 days of contract signing and collection of deposit. Basements are finished within 7-10 weeks.
Step 3 - Material Selection
In this phase we meet with the client and the materials for lighting, decoration and paint colors are selected within the agreed upon budget, the contract is adjusted if needed.
Step 4 - Rough Construction
This is where the real construction work begins. We start by demolishing any existing structure if needed and then doing the rough framing carpentry. When that is complete, our electrician, plumber and HVAC technician install their portions as needed. The jobsite is cleaned daily. At all times the project is supervised directly by Al Kulenski. When complete, we have the necessary inspections by the city for each of these. All inspections are handled by us and we guaranty that everything will pass inspection.
Step 5 - Finish Construction
After successfully completing the first inspections, we begin the finish phase of construction. At this point the project is insulated where needed, drywall is hung, taped and textured and the walls and ceiling are painted. Next, the trim carpentry is done along with flooring and the electrical, plumbing and HVAC finish work. After completion of these tasks, another city inspection is performed.
Step 6 - Projection Completion
At this point, all the inspections have been passed and the new addition/basement is occuable, but we opt to put extra finish on all our projects, including a punch list of minor issues and a meticulous final clean.
