Contractor Standards Guide
In the Contractor Standards Guide, you will find the basic dos and don’ts of hiring a contractor that anyone looking to design or remodel a home needs to know. Composed by the industry professionals here at Craftsman Construction, this guide offers a comprehensive list of what to look for, as well as what to avoid. Do you know what important documentation a credible contractor should have readily available, or should reasonably be able to furnish? Our Contractor Standards Guide not only outlines what documents to ask for, but also explains why each document is significant, and details what information each should include. Additionally, this guide offers insight into determining a contractor’s reputation, professionalism, and workmanship–all crucial factors to consider when investing in a project as precious and as permanent as one’s home. With a Contractor Standards Checklist included at the end, this guide will prepare you to embark on your design or remodeling journey with knowledge, confidence, and peace of mind.
Homeowner’s Guide to Homebuilding
The Homeowner’s Guide to Homebuilding is another helpful resource for homeowners looking to build or remodel their home. At Craftsman Construction, “we serve homeowners who demand great design and elite-quality results”, which means we never cut corners. In this guide, homeowners are encouraged to be selective when determining what their home build or remodel will look like from start to finish, ensuring to prioritize specifics such as up-to-date building techniques and materials, a daily on-site supervisor, and a detailed, step-by-step plan that is set out from the project’s very beginning. While Craftsman Construction can guarantee to meet these standards, the Homeowner’s Guide to Homebuilding will explain the necessity for each, while also warning against the pitfalls a homeowner may face if one or more of these standards is disregarded.
Why Build Green?
Why not? There are a multitude of advantages to building green, both for the homeowner and for the environment. In our Why Build Green guide, homeowners can learn how a green approach to building will not only reduce energy costs and create an overall more comfortable living space, but also how it reduces the environmental impact that homebuilding inevitably has on everyone’s home, Earth. This guide instructs that the decision to build green should be made in the design phase, when materials are being selected; by using energy-efficient, sustainable natural resources for a home build or remodel, homeowners save on their energy bills, avoid untimely replacements and repairs, and are able to live in a home with even temperatures, fewer drafts, and better humidity control. So, why not? Visit our Why Build Green guide to learn more.
