1. What Does Design/Build mean?
Design and build is a process that allows the customer to deal with one firm from conception to finished product. While we do most of the work in house, we have working relationships with various architects and engineers which we use on an as needed basis. An advantage with design/build is that it allows the contractor to keep the project costs and scope within pre determined parameters and makes for easy transitions.
2. What does it cost to get an estimate?
Our initial consultation or onsite visit is offered free of charge, where we will evaluate the existing conditions and hear what you’re plans and goals are and give you a “ballpark” estimate. The next step is the design phase which is where we will enter into an agreement to do your design work and begin to develop working drawings, which requires a retainer fee to cover design work.
3. What if I cannot decide whether to build a new custom home or renovate?
We actually take the design build phase to a new level with in- house real estate salespeople that help to evaluate your market and determine what makes the most sense to your situation. What you can sell for in its current condition vs. what the renovation will do to your home value as compared to building new. Other things to keep in mind are moving costs, removing children from schools, commute and much more. This is a large investment and we are here to assist you in making the right decision.
4. Are you licensed and insured?
Yes we are a State of Georgia Licensed Residential General Contractor and carry general liability and workers compensation insurance. You will receive a copy of our general liability and workers compensation insurance upon request with your name and address on it. Any subcontractors that we use are covered under our general liability insurance
5. Do you have references that we may contact?
Absolutely. You can read a number of our references at the bottom of our site and we can also provide an extensive list of satisfied customers.
