Do You Need A Contractor?
Frequently Asked Contractor Questions
How much do your contractor services cost?
Understandably, this is one of the first questions many clients ask but it is nearly impossible to answer over the phone. There are many variables that go into providing a construction estimate. We need to assess the site and answer some of the following questions: What type of installation will we be doing? How much prep work will be involved? Do we foresee any problems that may occur? What type of materials will be used? What will it take to get equipment and materials to the site? How long will it take to complete the project?
Do I need to prepare before the construction begins?
We may ask you to prepare the site where our team will work before the contract start date. This may include removing furniture, personal items, or vehicles from the driveway.
What is the payment schedule?
The payment schedule will depend greatly on the scope of the project, materials, and equipment needed. Generally, smaller jobs require 1/2 down and 1/2 when the project is complete, while bigger jobs require 1/3 down and payment installments when phases are completed. Your payment schedule will be located on your contract.
How long does it take to complete contractor projects?
The time it takes to design and install a project depends on the size and scope, ordering and delivery times for materials and plants, dry weather if we are laying hardscapes and any unexpected setbacks during installation. We cannot provide you with exact dates due to circumstances outside our control (mostly mother nature) however, we do provide you with an estimated start and completion dates in our written proposal.
