At a pre-construction meeting, Lynch Construction and the homeowner will review all documentation together again and decide upon a forecasted start date. Other topics covered at this meeting may include (as appropriate to the project):
- How you should prepare your house for remodeling
- Setting up a temporary kitchen (if necessary)
- Location of the portable toilet
- Location of the material staging area
- Location of the debris/dumpster
- Dust control
- Home security and project safety
- Children and pets.
- Parking for our construction crews
- How production schedules and working hours will impact your family
- Payment schedules
- Delays incurred and why
- Job signs and permit box locations
Also at this meeting we will discuss the project with your family, so everyone knows what to expect.
Remodeling can be stressful, particularly for small children, and especially if the area being remodeled is a kitchen, bath or bedroom. The workmen, noise and dust can be a very real annoyance.
We understand this and will do our part to make a minimal impact on your life and your schedules. We make extensive use of drop cloths, plastic room dividers, shoe covers and vacuums – but remember: sheetrock and plaster dust are difficult to completely control. We will provide special plastic carpet covers where construction traffic is likely.
There are many other precautions that both the contractor and the homeowner must take to ensure a project where frustration is minimized.
Our process includes the following steps:
- Creation of the Project Profile Sheet
- Initial Site Visit
- Creation and Approval of the Budget/Estimate
- Design Phase
- Pre-Construction Phase
- Construction Phase
- Project Completion
- Follow-Up, including Warranty and Guarantee Reminders
