Finding the right contractor and establishing an effective working relationship is just as important as choosing the right flooring or estimating costs. During this process and continuing through construction you will have questions. Below we’ve answered for you some of the most common we’ve encountered to help you in choosing CMI Construction for your remodel job.
Q: How long have you been in business?
A: CMI Construction was founded in 1995. Additionally, we have many craftsmen on our staff that have been in the construction business for many years. Our office is located on Wagon Wheel Road in Springdale, AR.
Q: Are you a member of any remodeler associations?
A: Yes, we are members of HBA, Home Builders Association and the newly formed Northwest Arkansas Remodelers Council. We are certified Green Professionals, Certified Aging in Place Specialist and Lead Safe certified with EPA.
Q: Do you have insurance?
A: Yes, we are fully insured and bonded.
Q: Do you specialize in particular types of projects?
A: Yes, we specialize in total home remodels, and room additions. If interested in new construction refer to our residential or commercial tabs. We also work with local designers.
Q: Do I have to file for a building permit?
A: You can if you want to, but CMI Construction will handle filing for all building permits as a free service for you.
Q: Do you offer a warranty?
A: We honor our work and materials in coordination with the manufacturers warranty for one year after the work is complete. If its not right, we’ll fix it.
Q: Will work with me on the timing of my remodel?
A: Absolutely! CMI Construction can typically come out to give you an estimate within a few days and we have enough craftsmen employed to start work within the following three weeks.
Q: How can I get in touch with you during my remodel?
A: All of our project managers carry cell phones with them and they will provide that number to you when we start the remodel. You can call them any time you need.
Q: How safe is my job-site during a remodel?
A: Construction sites can be inherently dangerous given the increased traffic, large trucks and such. CMI Construction takes every precaution to ensure that potentially dangerous areas are clearly marked and roped off. We keep our equipment and materials as far away as possible from the areas frequented by you and your family to ensure maximum safety.
Q: What happens if the Costs are more than you estimated?
A: Cost overruns can happen in a remodeling job. Hiring an experienced re-modeler like CMI Construction can help to mitigate “surprises” during the job which is typically what causes cost overruns. We have had very few jobs where our quoted cost needed adjustment. If we do find something that may increase the costs with the remodel we communicate this with you, show you exactly the problem and what needs to be done to correct the problem.
Q: What if I want to change something in the design?
A: Occasionally, people change their mind, think of a new feature or different way they’d like something done. We welcome homeowners to discuss their thoughts about changes in the remodel with us. The point is to get exactly what you want and we’re here to help.
