We are proficient in scheduling and managing your projects to stay on time and on budget. Our crew has managed over 1billion dollars in projects either for other companies or ourselves. You can count on us with whatever your needs may be. Architectural design and engineering are available through a design contract as well with certified professionals that we use and can count on. We have a rough estimate, this is based on previous experience and rough numbers. If this number is within our clients expectations and budget then we provide a design contract with a small deposit. This deposit will be used towards the final balance of the project in the last payment. During this phase we will assist the client with permits, assign a engineer and/or architect if needed, go over material pricing and selections, have trade walkthroughs if viable or send prints to trades for all new construction and ensure the lowest possible price by providing these activities to at least three different companies of each trade and getting three separate prices for each scope of work. We will then provide in a in person meeting a Final Estimate, contract and deposit invoice based on a percentage of the project to cover any upfront material costs. If any adjustments need to be made or changes in material or scope of work this will be completed and we will meet a second time. If all is agreed upon the documents will be signed and permits will be picked up if ready. I have a degree in engineering and have been in the trades for 12 years and have reached journeyman carpenter status and have been managing projects for 6 years. All of my employees with exception of laborers have been in their respective fields for a minimum of 5 years. Because all of our work is custom there is no standard pricing to list out.I started in the trades with my father who owns a General Contracting Buisness. I then moved on to building hotels as a carpenter and eventually finished my degree in engineering and designed movie theaters. I eventually switched back to managing and then starting my own company knowing I had the knowledge, expertise, resources and contacts to do so.

Many jobs in Illinois will require municipal permits in order to be approved by the town's inspector. It's always good to ask who will be responsible for pulling those permits, and if you'll be expected to do it. You'll almost never be told to pull your own, but knowing that Spring Grove Additions and Remodels permits are required makes you appear to be a well informed customer.
This will be answered when you ask if all employees are licensed. The only way to obtain a legitimate tradesman's license is to be a legal or naturalized citizen of the US. The company may employ people in positions that don't require a license, however, so it's wise to inquire.
Always ask for references, and always check them. Keep in mind though that the only references you'll get are people who the contractor is certain will give him a good review. You'd also be well advised to check online review sources in Spring Grove as well, which will give you a broader view of customer satisfaction for a given company.
You'll certainly want to ask them this. Steer clear of any company that is not insured in Illinois, because that means that any incidental damage they may do on your property will be a real hassle to recover compensation for. It is never wise to work with uninsured tradesmen of any kind. Most states also require that someone have insurance in order to be issued a trade license. If they say they're licensed but not insured, they're being less than truthful.
Though a standard question, it's important to ask. Most contractors will tell you how long they expect the job to take without you asking. If they don't volunteer that information, be sure to ask. It's also helpful to ask if that's a hard finish date, meaning that it's the definite finish date. If it's a soft finish date, it may be extended for any number of reasons.
