Frequently Asked Questions
How long has Greater Dayton Building & Remodeling been in business?
Greater Dayton Building & Remodeling has been remodeling homes in the Miami Valley for more than 20 years. Our Company was founded in 1987, and is still locally owned and operated.
How will you control dust and handle the mess associated with my job?
Although remodeling can be very dusty and dirty, we take measures to reduce the mess while your project is under construction. We install plastic dust barriers and drop cloths to isolate the construction area as much as possible. We also cover any HVAC registers in the work areas. The bottom line is we are very sensitive about dust control and all of us are very conscientious. We will do what we can to make sure your experience is as pleasant as possible.
Should I consider moving out of my house during the remodel?
Remodeling can be a little inconvenient and messy, especially when it comes to interior living spaces like kitchens and bathrooms. However, most of our projects are completed while our clients occupy their homes. Our clients find our team of tradesmen to be very courteous, conscientious and accommodating. But, if your project is extensive, it may become more practical for you to temporarily move out. You can discuss your specific situation with us prior to scheduling your project.
Do you guarantee your prices?
The price we quote is guaranteed as long as the scope of work and specifications don’t change. If you request different materials, exceed your allowances or additional work is needed, the price may change. You will be informed if and whenever this occurs.
In order to know whether something has changed requires that every task and item be clearly spelled out in writing so there is a clear record of the agreement. Greater Dayton Building & Remodeling provides very detailed proposals so you will know exactly what was included and what wasn’t.
Should I get other estimates before proceeding?
Getting other estimates is a personal decision. It’s very easy to compare prices but very difficult to compare scopes of work and specifications and even more difficult to compare service and craftsmanship. All too often people are tempted by a lower price and live to regret it when they don’t get the job they expected or worse, things start falling apart. Our advice has always been – hire a contractor you trust and feel confident will do a professional job for you.
Will I be able to select the actual products for my project?
Yes. All products like doors, hardware, trim, windows, cabinets, plumbing, electrical fixtures, flooring, paint colors and all specialty items, etc., with our guidance. These are normally chosen to closely match the existing items in your home or specific design tastes. We also have opened our Design Centre, a beautiful 12,000 square foot show room to help you with your decisions.
Can your company do everything that is involved in my remodel?
Greater Dayton Building & Remodeling is a full service Design Build company that offers professional Remodeling, HVAC, Plumbing, Electrical and anything needed to complete your remodeling project.
Will Greater Dayton Building & Remodeling take care of securing permits or will that be left up to me?
The Greater Dayton Building & Remodeling production team is responsible for getting permits and scheduling inspections so the homeowner isn’t inconvenienced.
Will your company take care of the trash and debris disposal?
The Greater Dayton Building & Remodeling personnel working at the residence, unless the homeowner states otherwise, handle all trash and debris removal.
How long should a remodeling project take to complete?
Lots of factors enter into the time it takes to complete a project. Obviously, the scope of the project has the most to do with time. A small bathroom remodel won’t take as long as a room addition. Some things such as custom cabinets and countertops, or made to size shower doors cannot be ordered in advance. This will delay the completion of the job. Weather and the building permit process can also cause delays. Your Designer and Project Superintendent will keep you informed of any schedule changes.
Does Greater Dayton Building & Remodeling do insurance work?
Yes we do, and our experienced staff will work directly with you and your insurance company to get the job done quickly and efficiently with as little hindrance to you as possible.
How are payments made during the remodeling process?
The Greater Dayton Building & Remodeling contract will have a payment schedule. The schedule lists the amount of payments, and at what point during construction they are due.
Do you warranty the work that you do?
We warranty all of the work we do in writing for a period of 1 year. Should you happen to have a problem with a component of your project, upon notification, we will respond as soon as possible to correct any warranty problem that you may have.
