We get a lot of questions from prospective clients about our company, the process, and most often, how long a project is going to take. We pulled the top six questions people ask us, and thought we’d share them in hopes to help others with these same questions and concerns.
How long will my roof project take?
We know it’s not the best answer, but it really depends on your situation. In a residential single family home, of average size, the project should only take one to two days to complete. This will definitely be more on the longer end of two days if you have a larger roof, or more complexities like roof to wall flashings that need to be installed as well.
How long will my siding project take?
Again, we have to say it really depends but typically you can expect a siding project to take between five and seven business days. If weather is good, and all side projects like wrapping, cutting, trimming all go as planned then your siding should be complete in about a week. Keep in mind, there are a lot more detailed, precisional steps that need to be taken when re-doing siding, so it’s important that your team takes their time and gets it right.
Does Northface Construction do interior work?
We do not cover interior home updates, but what we can do is maintain your exterior to prevent water, leaks, and other issues from causing damage to the interior. Over the years we have discovered that if we step foot inside your home for any repairs or updates, it changes the dynamic of our entire process and we have chosen to stick to what we do best, and that’s the exterior of your home. We do, however, have a lot of industry friends and partners who do fantastic interior work. Partners like Construction2Style can help with restorations and renovations on your home’s interior using top-notch design and remodeling techniques. We always love to refer our clients to partners we trust to handle any interior projects.
Do I need to do anything with my building permit?
Short answer? No. When we get contracted to do your project we will go down to the city or government building, pull the permit and post it appropriately. We will also take charge of covering all the bases in regards to communicating with the building officials all details from plans, to materials, to manufacturer specifications, etc. We will even call for the final inspection at the end of the project. We try to pay attention for if the inspectors do their own, unscheduled drive-by and mark off their records that way. We will call and confirm and make sure everything is up to snuff with them.
Is there anything I need to do to prepare for my exterior remodeling project?
There is not a whole lot you need to do for us for any exterior remodeling, but depending on your home or landscaping we have a few things we may recommend. We will ask you if and where there is an outside power source, and if we will have access to it. If not, we can plan to have a generator on-site to run power tools and whatnot. Also, for any work on a garage, we may ask you to keep vehicles out of the garage to prevent anything from falling on to your vehicles, this is especially for unfinished garages. We have also seen in the past property being damaged from pounding and vibrations on exterior walls, knocking down picture frames, or china in a cabinet. So, we recommend you move any valuables inside away from the exterior facing walls to prevent any damage. Lastly, if you have any plants or vegetation you want to be protected along the sides of your house, it will be crucial to let us know, and either cover it or let us know to be mindful of that landscaping.
Is there anything I need to do during my exterior remodeling project?
Our number one concern during the project is not only our safety, but the safety of the homeowner. So, during a project it’s important you are aware of your surroundings, you have a safe route to get in or out of your home, and it’s a good idea to wear shoes when walking outside of your home, to not step on any nails or debris. Not many people are around these types of hazards every day like we are, so we will gladly walk you through any and all hazards on the site, and how you can keep yourself safe and know what to watch out for.
