We are a General Contracting firm, Our carpentry related services are handled by our direct staff. The word "contractor" is thrown around a lot in New Hampshire. We can pull your permits, produce the necessary drawings, work with local municipalities and much more. We are able to provide electrical services, plumbing services and anything else you can dream involving residential construction. Our purpose is to complete the portion of the project that is under me and my staffs jurisdiction while providing licensed subcontractors what they need to get their portion of the project complete and to orchestrate all of this in the correct order for inspections. So rather than hunt for a respectable business in multiple facets of your project, we take care of staffing the other trades necessary to complete the work. With greater volume and larger projects, the more it will make sense financially for us to use specialty subcontractors for more portions of the project. The end goal is to utilize the best possible manpower to efficiently execute the job under the pre discussed timeline and keep to a budget.
I personally carry a lead certification, osha certification and have completed a Construction supervisor license program, I do not carry a CSL, as it is not used in New Hampshire. Unfortunately, at this time there is no Licensing for a general contractor in New Hampshire. The ability to navigate the code books and verify codes for building projects through the IRC and other code books as needed. The best way to avoid any issues with this is to work with a contractor who is happy to permit the job. Most who are not highly familiar with building code will not be interested in permitted projects. We always recommend to have work permitted as you are having an additional expert verify everything is done safely and correctly.
We have a liability policy that can be verified online with a live certificate, be sure to verify any paper certificate you receive for peace of mind. We also carry a workers compensation policy for our employees, which i would strongly recommend you look into the presence of with anyone you hire as this is typically what separate's a real business from the fly-by-night. The lack of a workers compensation policy puts you at risk, i encourage you to read into it.
We hire subcontractors for all electrical, plumbing and mechanicals work. We also hire subcontractors for specific subsidies of general construction if the volume crosses the threshold into which we can increase cost effectiveness for our customer.
We have a very clear and concise way of putting together projects. We provide an estimate with every different piece of product being a line item. If we are completing an estimate for a bathroom, we will write up the cost for installing a shower, installing a vanity, painting, drywall repair etc all seperately. It allows you the opportunity to ask questions about specific costs and what we have in mind for price range on specific products. We require a 40% deposit to be scheduled, 20% when we arrive on site with materials, 20% at half way completion and 20% at final inspection.
Change orders will be verified in writing, or sent to the customer immediately as it is spoken about to prevent confusion.
The only circumstance we stop on a project and work somewhere else is during waiting periods for subcontractors/inspections. Say we are adding a bathroom in a home, We frame it, followed by the plumber/electrician/building inspectors rough inspection. During the days this work is completed and we are unable to proceed further until it is complete, we will find other work. There will be no days of no-one working on your project, with the exception of the occasional scheduling mishap or delayed inspection. Us not being at your home on days where we cant keep a whole crew busy allows us to operate at a higher efficiency level and therefore be more competitive with pricing.
We have done full home remodels of both single family and multi family properties, kitchens, bathrooms, finished basements, mobile homes, water remediation, vinyl siding, vinyl plank and hardwood flooring, finished attics and much more,
