NEW HOME CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS

GETTING STARTED

Are you licensed and insured?

Yes, we have Workers Compensation Insurance, Liability Insurance, and Auto Insurance.  Millwork, Inc. also has a MA Home Improvement Contractor (HIC) license #112555 and Glenn’s unrestricted State Construction Supervisor’s License number is #50261.  In addition, each of our project managers has his own individual State Supervisor’s License.

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.

 

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.

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.

Can I be my own general contractor and save money?

Many people attempt to do this but few have the knowledge and/or time to do all the work a general contractor does.  If you decide to GC your own project, you are responsible for all aspects of the project, including procurement of materials, managing change orders, scheduling and coordinating the efforts of the sub-trades, and interfacing with inspectors and engineers.

Can I use my own subs and save money?

Sometimes this works well, but it can be a difficult experience and adversely affect the quality of work done on the job.  There is a lot of teamwork on a construction site between the workers from different trades. When we enter into these relationships it is important to have expectations outlined and understood by everyone on the team.

 

Can I buy my own materials and save money?

If you decide to purchase your own materials, you will be responsible for all procurement issues and warranty issues related to those materials. In addition, you may end up paying for lost labor if necessary parts are not on site when needed. In addition, most manufacturers warranties do not cover labor so if that toilet proves to be defective and needs to be replaced under warranty, you will end up paying the plumber to do the work twice.
