Who will be doing the work?
At Remington Contracting Services, we use the professionals who are best fit for the job at hand. This way we can guarantee the best service that meets your expectations. Throughout the construction process there will be many different tradespeople involved with your project, and we only use the most talented, licenced and insured craftsmen.
How long will it take for my job to be done?
We always provide an accurate time line once the information for the desired project has been finalized. Since each development plan will be customized for you, the homeowner, the amount of time it will take to complete the work will vary. We do understand that you will want the job finished as fast as possible, and we will strive to ensure your home project is completed in a timely manner.
What permits do I need, and who takes care of making sure they are completed?
The scope of the job will determine who acquires the permits but rest assured knowing that we are very familiar with the permitting process and will make sure that all work is in compliance with permitting and local building code. For most deck projects we will supply the permitting documentation for you to submit to the city. For larger jobs, such as a basement, we will typically be the ones to attain all required paperwork.
Will there be any hidden costs?
Once we have finalized the working plans for your home, all costs for the project will be included in the quote and should not change. In some few cases, unforeseen issues could impact the project and lead to additional costs. We take great care to inspect the work-site thoroughly at the time of initial design to minimize any or all unwanted costs once the work has begun.
Do I have to pay up front? How much do I hold in reserve until I am satisfied with the workmanship?
We never ask for money before work has begun and we structure our payment program to suit each clients project. Terms of payment will be agreed upon during the project consultation. For your peace of mind the final 10% of every project will be due when the final site inspection has been completed with the owner, and the contract has been satisfied.
I see contractors on television telling the homeowners that they need more money for unforeseen problems. Will this happen to me?
In most cases the project goes as planned without any surprises along the way as we thoroughly inspect the job site for any possible issues that will have a dollar value attached to them and include those associated costs in our quote. This minimizes the possibility of unforeseen costs occurring.
What happens if I am unhappy with the work provided?
As we are a Family operated business, your referrals are very important to us! We therefore place a high expectation on our contractors to complete the work not just to your satisfaction, but to ours as well. With that in mind, the owner will meet with you on site at the time of the projects completion to ensure you are satisfied with the work. Should there be any items in need of attention our team will work quickly to resolve them, and the final 10% of the funds will be held by you until the contracted work has been satisfied.
