FAQs for Homeowners

How does the process work?
To get started, we require 1/3 down.
After the foundation passes inspection, another 1/3 is due in order to secure the construction materials. A rough timeline is as follows:

  • erosion control: about 1/2 day
  • excavation: for a house – a day; for a commercial building – up to a week
  • foundation: 2-3 days
  • inspecting the rebar: 1 day
  • rain drains (optional): 1 day
  • backfill: 1/2 day minimum

Following the final cleanup, the remaining 1/3 is due.


How long will it take to complete a job?
While it obviously depends on the size of the job, on average, pre-construction (or pre-con) will take about an hour as part of our services. Excavation will take about a day, while a foundation will take about 3 days to set up & pour.

How much do permits cost?
Permits are priced as a percentage of the total cost of the project.

Am I responsible for erosion control?
We supply and install all the erosion control.

Do you take care of cleanup afterward?
We recycle any excess concrete in an eco-friendly manner and take pride in leaving our job sites spotless.
