Will Crews Be in My Home Everyday?
Do not expect to see full crews of workers at your
home every hour of every work day. At the beginning of the job, there
will be a lot of activity during demolition and framing. Later, as
subcontractors are scheduled for wiring, plumbing and heating and
cooling work, things will slow down. Just because you can’t see it
easily doesn’t mean nothing is happening. Trust us…it is. Our payment
schedule with you is designed so we get paid as construction phases are
Why Do I Need to Choose My Product Selections in
As part of the design process of your project, you
selected and made choices on many of the materials and items that will
go into your remodeling project. This step is important for two reasons.
The first reason is to provide an accurate cost estimate to you. The
second reason is to have the decisions made early so we can order your
materials to be available at the time they are needed for installation.
If we are not able to order your materials in advance, your project can
be significantly delayed. In this case, we would not be able to maintain
the construction schedule.
Should I Move Temporarily or Stay Put?
Depending on the scope of work, you and your family
may want to move out of your home temporarily during the project. If you
vacate the premises, R. J. Landis may finish your project more quickly
because a major clean-up will not be needed each night. Of course, each
situation is unique, and your decision to move or stay in the house will
depend on several factors.
Size of household
Scope of work
Duration of Project
Capacity for makeshift spaces
What Are the Typical Phases of My Remodeling
As you can see, a typical remodeling project has
many phases of construction. Yours may or may not have all the phases
below, but each phase must be completed for your project to turn out as

Will My Job Schedule Be Set in Stone?
There is no such thing as a cut and dried job
schedule; there cannot be. In construction, work is always affected by a
myriad of things including the weather, change orders from the client,
subcontractor schedules, material orders, and unforeseen delays. At R.
J. Landis Design & Construction, Inc., a weekly job schedule outline is
reviewed by the project manager and all lead carpenters once a week. Be
aware that we are very well informed of jobsite activity and we are
always aware of your project status
Will I Be Inconvenienced by the Work Going On in
We pride ourselves on going out of our way to
minimize your inconvenience during construction, so you can live
normally and comfortably in your home for as long as possible.
Remodeling, unlike any other profession, requires work to be performed
in a completed environment: your home. We must come into your living
space to re-construct your home. While we go to great lengths to be
sensitive to this fact and cause minimal disruption to your lifestyle,
some inconvenience is to be expected. It takes up time to work around
your lifestyle and provide that minimal disruption. So try not to focus
on how long it takes to do the job. The trade-off is your ability to
continue a relatively normal life during construction.
How Will I Be Emotionally Affected During the
Homeowners experience all kinds of emotions during a
remodeling project. From anticipation to euphoria, emotions generally
follow the activity curve of the job. For example, expectations can be
highest when planning your project with your designer. Once carpenters,
electricians, and other subcontractors come into your home, expect to
feel some degree of uneasiness. However, as the project begins to wind
down and you prepare to take your space back, the emotional pendulum
swings in the other direction again.
How Do I Handle Communication With the Crews on
A great way to communicate with our lead carpenter is
to write your questions on the job site memo pad. Your lead carpenter
will write responses to your questions on the memo pad as well. This
will help save time and energy trying to track each other down by phone.
R. J. Landis’ goal is to develop long-term
relationships in preparation of clients’ future needs. After project
completion, we keep in touch with you on a regular basis through
quarterly newsletters and help you stay informed about the latest trends
Will My Home Stay Neat During My Remodel?
In offering a value-added service, we “broom clean”
every day the areas of your home being remodeled. Meanwhile, during the
remodeling project, you are responsible for continuing to clean the
areas of your home not under construction. Unless otherwise noted in
your construction agreement, your newly remodeled space will be
“construction cleaned” at substantial completion for your occupancy.
What Kind of Warranty Does R. J. Landis Provide?
R. J. Landis Design & Construction, Inc. provides a
limited warranty for their homeowners for each project that it performs.
This limited warranty is included in the limited warranty section of the
construction agreement. Please refer to it for what is and is not
covered under the warranty on your new remodeling project.
The standard warranty in the remodeling industry is
one year for workmanship. We provide two years of coverage, so you can
be sure that everything looks and operates as it should.
