Why do I need to make sure a contractor has workers compensation & liability insurance?

While your home is being remodeled, you should insure the structure and its contents.  If you don't, then you could be exposed to certain risks that are out of your control, including fire and weather. When hiring a remodeling contractor, find out if they have workers compensation insurance and ask to see a copy of the policy. Workers compensation pays for medical and rehabilitation expenses and covers lost wages if the workers sustain injuries on the job.  You should also protect yourself by verifying that whoever is remodeling your home is carrying proper insurance coverage, which Sebring Design Build is [...]

How do you handle charge orders?

Any work that will result in an additional cost will be processed through a Charge Order.  We post all Charge Orders to our scheduling software and you provide digital signatures on all items. You will always know where the overall project cost stands. This eliminates the “surprises” at the end of your project and allows you to make sound financially decisions.

Can you tell me about who will be in my home?

All of our craftsmen are appropriately licensed and insured. We want to make sure that you are totally comfortable with our employees. Each and every craftsman we employ upholds the same values of honesty and integrity as our project managers. We often get compliments from customers about how our team becomes “like a second family” to them during the project.

How do you keep dirt and dust out of other parts of my home?

Although remodeling can be and often is very dusty and dirty, we take measures to reduce the mess while your project is under construction. We install plastic dust barriers and drop cloths to isolate the construction area as much as possible. We cover any HVAC registers in the work areas. We often incorporate “negative draft” practices to help further reduce the migration of dust to other areas throughout your home. The bottom line is that we are very sensitive about dust control and all of us are very conscientious. We will do what we can to make sure your experience [...]

Do I need to get a Permit for my project?

Typically, yes. We rarely come across municipalities that don’t require a permit for the larger remodeling projects that we provide such as bathrooms, kitchens, and basements. If your project is fairly simple, you may not need a permit. Each region is very segmented which means that we deal with many different building departments and the best way to find out is to call and ask your specific city or township building department.  Important note: we take care of getting all the paper work and inspections that are required for your project. Check out this article: Benefits in Using Permits [...]

When do we receive the drawings for review?

You receive your project drawings after you sign our proposal or design agreement. For basements, kitchens, and bathrooms; we’ll meet with you during the proposal process to make revisions. Room additions and new home construction require a signed design agreement and required payment to release your drawings.

Can you create the design and drawings for my project?

It depends. We use CAD software to design projects when working within the original footprint of the house, like basements, kitchens, and bathrooms. If you plan to build a new home or addition, we do have architects that we partner with to help with design and draft all the necessary drawings.
