Quality Management Promise

I started in the construction industry at age 15, from that point forward it has been my life. Over the years being involved on numerous projects of various sizes and scopes I realized that there was a need for a different kind of contracting company. A company that values the quality of the client experience and the trade craftsmanship provided. Many companies say that they provide these things and they might, but, we have established quality management protocols, tools and systems that keep a tangible grip on maintaining our quality here at Northface Construction. By doing this we are able to measure our key performance indicators on all facets of the client experience to hold ourselves accountable and maintain a certain expectation of quality throughout.

Northface Construction is built to serve our clients to a higher satisfaction than any other company in the market today. Every decision I make for this company is based on the values that create the personal interaction and finished projects that are needed in the modern construction industry. The market is different today than that of even 5 years ago, which is why we promise to our clients to be constantly pursuing new technology and systems that provide higher value, efficiency and quality to the services we provide. The days of high pressure sales are moving out the door, we know our clients are smart and informed individuals who need a consultant not a salesman to satisfy their construction needs.

roofing

Since starting Northface Construction, there are a few core values that have remained and been the building blocks for our success with our clients. The core values are Sustainability, Honesty and Customer Service. Sustainability is an idea that means a lot to me and Northface Construction, it is built from three pillars of sustainability; Environmental Sustainability, Social Sustainability and Economic Sustainability. Northface Construction ties all three of these concepts into every decision that we make. I know through these actions that we can have a strong positive influence on the communities, people and companies we impact.

“I personally stand behind every job that Northface Construction contracts and always will be an advocate for customer service and quality oriented construction.”

Roofing Contractor Recognition and Affiliation – Northface Construction

The toughest part of choosing a roofing contractor is knowing who to trust. As talked about in our previous post How to Find a Trusted Roofing Company  there are important steps you can take to make sure you are finding the proper roofing contractor for your project. But, what types of affiliations does a company have and how do each of those establish that this roofing contractor is the one to work with?

  1. BBB

    • The Better Business Bureau is an establishment that holds businesses accountable for their practices in the marketplace and give a rating associated with the overall ethics and satisfaction that a roofing contractor  is conducting business. Companies can elect to become an Accredited member by paying membership dues and agreeing to abide by the BBB Code of Conduct.
  2. Manufacturer Certification

    • Roofing contractors can be manufacturer certified for different brands of shingles on the market. They must abide by manufacturer specification for installation, a code of conduct in business practices and have an outstanding track record of quality work to become certified. With being certified, the roofing contractor is being backed by the actual manufacturer of the product they install, which is a BIG deal. Most of these certifications by manufacturers also enables the contractor to provide much better warranty coverage than that of a typical contractor who is not certified. This is a HUGE plus because these stronger warranties could save the homeowner thousands in the future for a low cost up front.
  3. Houzz

    • Houzz is a social media type home style and decor site which allows contractors and other home products or designers to showcase their work and interact with potential clients. It allows residential consumers to look at photos and styles and add them to a portfolio to save and plan for their upcoming project or redesign. Houzz is very unique in the fact that is allows consumers to interact with professionals and ask questions about the showcased work. Companies who are awarded service awards by Houzz are chose because of their highly positive reviews and past interactions with clients which is another good insight into how a roofing contractor serves their clients.
  4. Angie’s List

    • Angie’s List requires roofing contractors to have at least one review from a current Angie’s List subscriber before they can be a service providing member. The site relies on actual reviews from REAL clients to judge on the overall experience and performance of work provided by the contractor. So not only do companies need to abide by a code of ethics, they really do need to satisfy their clients to be listed as a top provider. If a company receives an Angie’s list award or even is a service providing member you can know that this company is vetted, tried and tested.
  5. Trade Associations

    • Trade associations are a great indication of a companies trustworthiness and it shows insight into their culture as well. If a roofing contractor or other type of contractor is an active member in a local association it can be a good indication of their care for their local community and how they uphold strong ethics in how they do business. Most associations have strong missions that will incorporate an ethical standard of it’s members and seek to improve the community in which they serve.
  6. Chambers of Commerce

    • The local chamber of commerce is another affiliation that a reputable roofing contractor might have. Like trade associations, your local chamber of commerce with have business standards that it upholds for it’s members. It also is another way to see the insight of the culture of the roofing contractor you are looking to do business with and their care for the community in which they serve.
  7. Online Reviews

    • Online reviews can be found in many local listing spots such as Google, Houzz, Angie’s List, Yelp, BBB etc.. These will give you as a consumer a full overview of what type of quality experience and craftsmanship they provide to real local clients that have had experience. The value of online reviews for potential consumers and roofing contractors alike is immeasurable. Because not only can you get a full view of the company but, contractors can find out how they can serve their clients better. Another indication of the companies integrity is how they address and respond to bad reviews.

We here at Northface Construction believe that as a consumer you are best served by us through providing relevant and valuable information that can provide you with the tools to make an informed decision. your home is your biggest asset and that is why we promise to Educate, Consult and Deliver on the services we provide so you are satisfied with your experience to the fullest extent possible.

Otsego Siding Storm Damage – The Northface Construction Difference

Not all contractors are made the same. With that being said, I wanted to talk about a recent project the we completed in Otsego, MN for some clients. The situation started with the fact that these homeowners had sustained some wind damage from a storm this last summer on their home that ripped off around 200 square feet of vinyl siding. When we met these individuals they were almost at their wits end at finding someone to come and fix the damage. The reason being that many siding contractors had told them that is was not worth the time or the money to do the job. When we first talked they were relieved to hear that Northface Construction would help them with their storm damage issues no matter how small of a job it was.

storm damage

The first time we went out there we assessed the loss and established a price for completing the work that they had requested. We were going to find the same siding and replace it back to how it had looked previously. When fixing siding Northface Construction ALWAYS researches to make sure that the existing siding is still in production so we can match the color as best we can. Upon researching the color of siding that these homeowners had on their house, we discovered that it was not produced anymore and we would have to go with a similar product to finish the repair if the homeowner wanted to.

storm damage

We here at Northface Construction do a lot of insurance restoration work from storm damage and know that in many insurance policies if the siding is not produced anymore that the insurance company must replace the ENTIRE HOUSE siding. We brought this fact to the attention of the homeowners and let them know that we could either repair the siding like we originally discussed, or they could file a claim with their insurance company to potentially replace the entire house. This brought on an interesting chain of events that changed the project from a small repair to a total storm damage siding remodel.

The insurance company approved a total storm damage siding replacement on the entire house. This was a great scenario to play out because the amount of deductible that the homeowners would have to pay was less than what the repair was to fix the existing outdated siding in the beginning!

Northface Construction and the clients were able to get a contract signed to complete the remodel of the siding storm damage on their house. We consulted them on what types of products were in the market, helped choose a beautiful exterior design of color and had our highly skilled installers complete the job up to our standards.

siding

This project was a great project for many reasons, but there are a few that stand out above the rest. First off, no other contractors gave these homeowners the respect and time that they deserved and gave Northface Construction the opportunity to show what we are all about, and that is customer service and value. When you treat everyone with respect and listen to their needs it serves everyone better and we were able to do that. Secondly, Northface Construction has the knowledge, expertise, skills and capability to handle storm damage repairs and remodels of any scope or size. Because of our strong knowledge and experience in storm damage restoration we were able to serve this customer fully and satisfy their needs/expectations above and beyond. Lastly, these homeowners were able to not only get their problem fixed, but they were able to fully remodel the siding on their home with brand new top notch material. They were able to give their home a beautiful updated face-lift for very minimal.

“Northface Construction was very good to us.  Josh was willing to start out by taking a siding repair job and it ended up being a complete replace job. Northface installers did a clean job on install and the quality of the work is amazing.”

Northface Construction Core Values – Roofing

Northface Construction Core Values

When you hire a construction company to contract work on your home, the experience produces a lasting impression.

This construction company will be your first and last call for service, consulting and projects in the future.

The problem is, in the roofing, siding and storm damage part of the construction industry, these types of contractors are few and far between. The reason for this is because of the large amount of need that has arose for such contractors when harsh weather hits. A lot of companies who are reputable roofing and siding experts in the local area get overwhelmed during storm damage times. This opens up the need for more companies to handle all the large amounts of work.
