After initially contacting us we will set up a convenient time to meet to discuss your project. When initially meeting with a client for the first time, we set out to achieve three main things:
Once a budget has been established, a preliminary start date and completion date can be worked out, working drawings are completed (if required) and specifications set out for the scope of work,
Keystone Contracting & Millwork will provide you with a FIRM PRICE quotation that will include all aspects of the project. We will also provide a clear and concise written contract, which explains the obligations of both us as contractors and you as the homeowner i.e. payments, change orders, site conditions, guarantees, and other assurances.
After all the details of work are determined, and a FIRM PRICE quotation has been accepted, planning for your project begins; start and completion dates are finalized, materials are ordered, building trades are scheduled, and permits are obtained.
This stage is crucial and requires great effort by ALL parties, as any delays or improperly selected material may cause major delays during renovations and can result in additional costs not budgeted for.
Prior to the commencement of any work we prepare your home for construction. Temporary partitions are set up, floors and handrails are protected, furniture is moved out and tools and materials are placed in designated areas.
Work then begins in accordance with the particular type of job. This is the when all the crucial elements like demolition, framing, electrical and plumbing rough-in and drywall happens. Once the basic layout is in place cabinets and finishing material can be ordered. This is a crucial time for everything to be right!
When all the rough in construction has been completed, the pleasing elements of your project will start to come together: finishing carpentry, flooring, painting, fixtures, cabinetry, lighting, etc.
Here is where your dreams and visions start to fully come to light. All the pain and hard work on various decisions will finally start to pay off.
Let us know about it. We are happy to assist you.
