At Home Contracting, Inc. provides this page to answer some of the most commonly asked questions posed by our prospective customers. Please take a few minutes to review the list and see if any of your questions can be answered prior to contacting us for a design quote consultation. If not, please don’t hesitate to email or call us with your questions.
How many years’ experience do you have?
We have over 20 years of experience in all facets of remodeling, kitchen remodeling, screen rooms, sunrooms, hurricane protection, pool cages and pool screens, windows, garages and general renovation and construction projects.
Do you offer free quotes?
Yes. We have several estimators that are located in many areas on the Gulf Coast. Our estimators will call to discuss your needs and schedule a time for an appointment, which is convenient with your schedule.
How do I get started?
Once you have identified the type and amount of remodeling work
you wish to have done (many times home owners have several items on their remodeling wish list, prioritize each project as you see fit, based on your household needs and available financing), email us or give us a call to schedule a design/quote consultation.
I have some general remodeling ideas; can you help me establish which ideas will work best for my situation?
Yes. You can also go to the contact us page and email us with information that you would like to have completed. When our team member meets with you, they will discuss all of the options that might be available, and help to guide you for what will work best for your situation.
We also have a Computer Aided Drafting/Design (CAD) program that can help you and us to visualize the scope of the project.
What are your payment options?
Payment options vary from job to job, however generally at least the price of materials and travel to the job site is calculated into the down payment. A final payment will then be due at the completion of the work. In Florida (FL), home remodeling contractors will often work with customers on multiple payment plans for large scope jobs. Ultimately, any unresolved payment arrangements are finalized and agreed upon between the customer and contractor during the time that the customer awards the bid to us.
What about work schedules and rules for household access by workers during the job?
This will vary with the type and scope of the work being done. You can discuss these options and any time leading up to, during, or after your design quote consultation. We will work with you to establish a plan that is amenable to you and minimizes disruptions of your ongoing household activities as much possible.
Do you provide clean-up and debris removal upon completion of a remodeling job?
Yes. We make special efforts to minimize our foot print both during and after completing our remodeling work, so you can better enjoy the remodeling process and its rewards.
How can I be sure that At Home Contracting Inc., will complete the project as it was agreed upon while keeping the standard of quality high?
You will have a project contractor who is there to answer any questions or concerns as the project progresses. Their job is to inform you and react to any reasonable request during the project. Many customers who don’t have this open communication with the contractor feel uncomfortable and sometimes feel they are not getting the value as a result.
Will I be able to request or change things during the project?
Yes, if the modifications fit within the scope of the project, a modified quotation is created and when the customer and At Home Contracting, Inc. agree, the project can easily move that direction.
