FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

The most common pre-construction questions; answered.

How do I know what is included in my pricing?

We provide our clients with a detailed itemized list of everything included in the pricing package. Some items are indicated by the amount of linear or square footage like trim or countertop respectfully. Others are by unit, such as a faucet or how many recessed lights. The list is provided and reviewed with client before contracts are signed or checks are written to be sure everyone has a firm understanding of everything entailed.

Who will handle my permits?

All permits will be supplied for the client by EB Building Company. We do not avoid permits on any job for any reason.  If any builder asks you to pull a permit for them this is a major red flag. I have heard a lot of made up reasons to do so from questionable builders. The reality is it shifts responsibility and accountability to the home owner instead of the builder. DO NOT PROCEED if ever asked to supply permits.

How does scheduling work? Will I know if the job is on schedule?

Once a contract is signed and a start date assigned clients are provided with access to our online project management tool. The client can at anytime reference this website to check on upcoming events and predicted timing. The job is laid out from beginning to end and updated as progress or possible changes occur.

How long will my project take?

Every project is different. Certain projects have guidelines for time based on what they are and the size. Each project needs to be calculated on it’s own scope.

Is EB Building Company fully licensed and insured for building and remodeling?

Yes, we are a fully licensed and insured building company. Any subcontractor who works for EB Building Company is required as well to provide proof of necessary licensing and insurance.

Will you provide references?

We are happy to provide references for our potential clients. We love for people to hear reviews from previous clients!

What happens to our old cabinets, appliances, countertops?

We work with Habitat For Humanity to repurpose any products that can be salvaged.

Will I need to move out of my home?

More often than not clients reside in their home during the construction process. In the case of a kitchen remodel a remote kitchen with a coffee maker, microwave, and a fridge is usually welcomed by clients. Cups, plates, and plastic silverware can be set up to make the process less inconvenient.  In the case of a major remodel or addition home clients may be advised to look into renting a home or staying with a family member during the process.

Do I need a bathtub in my house?

It seems that many people say that they need a bathtub for resale, but will never use it.  More and more often home remodels actually eliminate the bathtub completely and replace it with a shower. I have never received any negative feedback from a home owner who sold their home after. This is also a question you can pose to your local real estate agent.

Will there be dust?

The dust and dirt will be the worst in the demolition phase. Once we’ve got things stripped down to the frame, things will be fairly clean. Drywall installation and sanding will create a lot of very fine dust for a few days. We do our very best to seal off the rest of the house, but a little dust will always get through. It’s a good idea to throw a plastic sheet over nearby sensitive items like electronics or fine furniture during this phase. On larger projects we also bring in dust control equipment. 

Does EB Building Company offer financing?

Yes EB Building Company works with an outside lending firm to provide loans quickly to our customers.

Can you provide us with architects and designers?

Yes EB Building Company is partnered with trusted architects and designers for our clients.

Will you handle all aspects of the remodeling process?

Yes, EB Building Company will handle all aspects. We will supply all tradesmen, drawings, permits, materials, and dumpsters.

Does someone have to be home at all times during work hours?

No, most customers are unable to be home for our work. Most often we provide a lock box so the home owner is not tied to us.

Can I do some of the work myself?

Unfortunately we do not work hand in hand with customers in the physical labor aspects. For quality control, warranty, and safety issues.
