What is an allowance?

This is an excellent question! An estimate is divided into two categories, Hard costs and allowances. An allowance can be anything from a job variable to a selection item, like light fixtures. Selections are going to be things that you will pick out. Since everyone has different preferences, we make it an allowance.

We use our extensive history of previous jobs, combined with our in-depth meetings about your job, to set a dollar amount we think you might spend for this allowance, and if you spend less, you will receive a credit; if you spend more, you pay the difference. Allowances give you the freedom to choose what you feel is best without many constraints.

Do I need a plan/drawing?

Yes, Kentucky doesn’t require you to have a set of drawings when building a home or remodeling, but we require it. Having a plan makes the job flow much smoother, saving you time and money.

If you are looking for a new construction plan or need a remodel plan, we can provide those for our customers, reach out to us, and we can get started on that for you!

When can you start?

This is always a great question! We can usually start with our preconstruction phase immediately or within a week. Actual construction won’t take place until this phase is done or almost done. The pre-construction time frame can vary considerably for each customer. Give us a call and we can give you a better idea of the overall timeframe of your project.

How much will my project cost?

Each customer and project has its own challenges that we must overcome, making this question near impossible to answer without looking at your specific project. The exact same kitchen remodels on two different houses with two different original layouts will cost a different amount. Give us a call, and we can discuss your project in depth to better indicate what you can expect.

Do you work outside of Bowling Green and Warren County?

Yes, we know it cannot be easy to find General Contractors in surrounding counties. We don’t travel over an hour outside of Bowling Green because it typically becomes a larger financial investment.
