We all know how important it is to coordinate the right way throughout an extensive remodel as well as throughout a new construction. The shortfalls happen when the builders don’t have these steps in place….who is in charge of what, what kind of roles do they fulfill, what kind of responsibilities do they have as well as what is expected of them.

It is important for us to let this “light shine” on our whole team, so we can reveal these important parts to our new clients, as we know everyone cares about how their project is going to flow and how will it be finished.

Again, we want to be as transparent as possible when it comes to us running our company and projects in the field!
