How do I begin this process?
Sometimes it is as simple as a phone call to a good contractor. At Silva Brothers, we can guide you through every step of the process on a project of any size. Your budget doesn’t matter, but designing within your budget does. It helps at the outset, if you have a clear sense of what you want and what your budget is. But don’t worry if your vision isn’t clear yet, sometimes thinking through that is part of the process, as well. Don’t be afraid to ask questions – Silva Brothers’ expertise will help you think it through.
How do I get an estimate?
Call Charlie. He will assess your project needs, and if a visit is necessary for further information, Charlie will meet with you at your home. Silva Brothers is a family business with family values, and that includes respecting your budget. You will find our cost estimates to be competitive in the marketplace.
Do I need to hire an architect?
That will depend on the scale of your project. If it requires an architect or engineer and you don’t know who to hire, we can recommend someone that will be perfect for your job.
How do I find a good contractor?
As a homeowner, you need to do your homework. Talk to friends and neighbors that had work done on their homes. Were they satisfied with their completed projects? Make sure that the contractor is licensed and fully insured, that means both liability and workmen’s comp. Ask for references on the last five jobs and follow up on them: Were they happy with the results? Were the workers respectful and did they leave the job site neat at the end of the day? Did they show up every day? Would you use them again? If the answer is “yes” to all of these questions, you found yourself a good contractor.
