Additions and Renovations

ENHANCING YOUR HOME WITH SUPERIOR WORKMANSHIP, DESIGN AND MATERIALS

 

Millwork, Inc. has built its reputation on the success of our many high end addition and renovation projects in Winchester and elsewhere.  Are you looking for a larger gathering space for family and friends, or a master suite? A more functional basement or garage space? A renovation of your home’s exterior or a brand new outdoor living space?  While our projects have varied greatly, we approach each one with the same high degree of quality workmanship and building standards, and courteous professional interactions with the homeowner, and the architects and designers involved in your project.  We will work with you to determine an honest and realistic budget and timeline to minimize surprises and disruptions. We treat your home and neighborhood with respect and make the entire process as painless as possible. Our team of carpenters is highly skilled and you will always have a lead carpenter on the job.  Communication is key, and we are always available to answer your questions and work with you to keep the project on track.

ADDITIONS & RENOVATION PROJECTS

GETTING STARTED

What is my role as the customer before the project begins?

The most important thing you can do is to tell us as much as you can about the work you would like done.  During the bidding stage, we are often asked for a fixed price quote on a poorly defined scope of work and that’s just not possible. A detailed, comprehensive bid requires an equally detailed and comprehensive scope of work.

 

How exactly do you bid a job?

  We bid work either on a Fixed Price basis or on a Time and Materials basis.  In a Fixed Price situation, we bid off a well-defined set of plans and/or job specifications.  These jobs have a start price and an agreed upon payment schedule and any changes are executed via change order while the work is underway.  In a Time and Materials (T&M) situation, we quote you our Labor Rates per hour, and all other job costs are charged to you at our cost plus a markup.  We usually work under a T&M arrangement if the plans must evolve as the work continues or if the scope of work is impossible to determine at the time of the bid.  

Do I need to hire an architect or professional designer?

The answer depends on the magnitude of the job.  We generate our own plans for smaller projects. For bigger jobs, we usually do a rough estimate, and then suggest that you get plans drawn up if your budget is realistic.

Can I hire my own architect or designer?

Absolutely. We can work with a professional of your choice or can suggest one from our list of reliable partners.  We do like to be involved early in the design process to help lend some reality to the budgeting process. We have seen some magnificent plans never get built because all the bids exceeded the budget.  This unfortunate event can usually be avoided if the builder is part of the design process.

Who will be in charge of my project? How will I communicate questions or concerns?

Your project will be assigned to one of our Lead Carpenters, who will serve as project manager, and will be on site daily.  The Lead Carpenter will be your point person throughout the construction process, and will be available to you through several means – on site, by phone call, text or email.  In addition, you are encouraged to contact Glenn directly at any point in the project.

Is Millwork certified under the EPA’s Lead Safe Remodeling law?

Specifically, the EPA’s Lead-Based Paint Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule (pursuant to 454 CMR 22.00 and CFR 745.225) requires that renovations conducted for compensation must be performed by certified firms using certified renovators. All three of our project managers are EPA-certified as Lead-Safe Renovator-Supervisors. In addition, Millwork, Inc. holds its Lead-Safe Renovation Contractor License from the MA Department of Labor Standards. We have been fully certified since 2010.
