FAQs

Can Resicom help design a custom home for me?

Yes, we have more than 53 years of experience in building family homes and are specialists in restoration and commercial projects. We offer priority construction services to clients at affordable rates to ensure they get value for money.

Can I make site visits to the house during construction?

Once construction work begins on your home, no site visits without a builder representative are allowed. This is mainly because the construction site has a lot of dangerous conditions, and we must comply with insurance requirements that don’t allow any unaccompanied visitation to the site.

After we have framed the house, and the under roof and trades have roughed-in the components, we can schedule a pre-drywall walk-through. This will allow you to check the status of your home and ensure that everything is done to your satisfaction.

What’s the difference between remodeling and renovating a home?

The renovation of a property or home means that updates and changes were made to the property, but there weren’t any major structural changes. Remodeling is when the space inside the home was changed or expanded, and the walls were moved.

Do you charge for estimates?

We don’t charge anything for our estimates and are happy to meet with clients, to review their project and give them a detailed proposal that outlines the scope of work for the quoted price. It’s imperative that we get as many details as possible about the possible to give you an accurate quote.

How long will my project take?

Every construction project is different, and the duration it takes to complete depends on various factors like the scope and size of the job. We will put together a construction schedule before construction begins, and then detail out every step of the project. This is done to ensure you can track the progress of your project. It is imperative that the construction schedule remains on track, to ensure satisfaction for all involved parties.

What is the payment process?

We require a 10% or $1,000 deposit, at the contract signing, and a further 15% when mobilization occurs to start construction. We will also send progress billings throughout the course of the project, which is a good way to invoice customers. It helps them check the progress and feel comfortable with the percentage we are billing them.

Do I need permits for my project?
