The Building Process - We Handle Every Detail.
As your residential general contractor, everything is managed by our team!
Generally there are five basic stages to the building process of actually building your new dream home. We manage every detail and step of every phase.
Stage 1 - Building the Foundation
Before the foundation is poured, there is a lot of work to do. The site must be graded and excavated and the foundation laid out according to the plot map. Rough plumbing is installed and inspected and, finally, the foundation for the house, garage and porch is poured. As with all aspects of construction, weather can play a part in foundation delays. Improper grading and drainage can undermine a foundation from the beginning on some projects, but we take extra steps in planning to curtail any major foundation issues.
Stage 2 - Building the Framing
This is when your house starts looking like a house. During this phase, all of your new home's interior and exterior walls and the stairs are framed. Now it's time to get keep the weather out, by installing the sheathing, roof, shingles, exterior doors and windows. The quicker this phase is completed, the fewer weather-related delays you'll experience while finishing the interior of your house. Again, we manage every aspect of your home's new framing stage, including the proper care of weather-related issues.
Stage 3 - Installing Plumbing, Mechanical, Electrical
The work that happens during this phase must be done correctly, because once sheetrock is put over it, everything will be harder and more expensive to access. Water, waste piping, water heater, HVAC system, ductwork and rough electrical wiring -- the infrastructure of your new home -- are installed during this stage. All of these systems require inspection to assure you can safely move on to the next phase, and we take care of all of these permits and inspections. We also hire and manage all of the experts who work during this stage.
Stage 4 - Installing the Insulation and Drywall
First the walls are insulated and then the drywall or sheetrock is installed over them. By now, you and I have discussed details about sheetrock thickness, how it will be fastened to the studs (nails or screws) and what type of texture or paint we are using. We have very high levels of quality assurance that we insist upon for every phase of this stage.
Stage 5 - Exterior and Interior Finish
In this phase, all the final details are taken care of, including installation and testing of electrical, mechanical, HVAC and plumbing systems and the installation of ceilings, doors, baseboards, window sills, floor coverings, countertops, cabinets, tiles, appliances, mirrors, lights, faucets and showerheads. Everything gets a covering of paint or wallpaper and the driveway and sidewalks are poured. Final inspections, both municipal and with our inspector, are performed now and landscaping is done.
From start to finish, we take care of everything. We include you in all of the communications of project stages and phases. Our goal is to keep you informed and educated about the process so surprises are virtually eliminated!
