Frequently Asked General Contracting Questions
As one of the most recommended general contractors, Carter Home & Design has a wide range of experience and training that is designed to meet the growing and changing needs of homes of all shapes, sizes, and requirements. We've put together a list of some of the questions we are asked on a regular basis, paired with answers we hope you will find helpful.
Do You Carry General Liability Insurance?
Yes. We carry general liability insurance and can produce the supporting certification documentation at your request.
Do You Clean Up After the Job?
Cleaning up after a job is one of the ways we set ourselves apart from other local companies. We require each of our crews to clean up tools, working materials and any debris created by the work we have completed. We've streamlined our site prep procedures to reduce and eliminate messes as they occur, leaving your property safe and tidy the whole way through.
Do You Use Sub-Contractors?
Reliable sub-contractors can add value to a residential build. While we are equipped to offer most services in-house, there are occasions where using a trusted sub-contractor will increase your ability to hit cost-savings and timeline targets. When this occurs, all work is supervised diligently, and the highest quality craftmanship and customer service is still expected and guaranteed.
Do You Have Pictures of Previous Jobs?
Book a free consultation with our qualified experts to see a selection of pictures and examples of previous job sites we are proud to have been a part of.
Are You Licensed?
Yes. All our licensing is up-to-date, and each member of our team is a licensed professional.
Can You Help Me Come Up with the Best Plan for My Property?
We have an expert design team made up of experienced designers, certified engineers and innovators from diverse backgrounds. If you would like help coming up with the best plans for your property, we can provide the comprehensive assistance you will need to feel comfortable and confident enough to move forward to make your goals a reality.
Will I Be Able to Request Changes During the Project?
Open communication and our thorough consultation process allow us to fully explore the fine details of your vision. We will help you prepare decisions that need to be finalized at each stage of the process, so you can be confident you are getting exactly what you need.
If you would like to make changes after materials have been ordered, we can certainly accommodate your wishes. To do this, you will need to fill out additional paperwork that shows the requested changes and the associated cost of returning materials that have been previously ordered, as well as costs for new materials and labor.
