FAQs on Operating During COVID-19
Winter Letter From The Owner
Every year it happens. Somehow Labor Day reflections become “I can’t believe it’s Christmas already”.
Although the COVID-19 pandemic put most of our business operations on hold for the past two months, we are happy to announce we’ve resumed operations on many of our contracted projects. As of May 1, 2020, Governor Wolf announced that construction could resume which has allowed us to complete opened projects and start new ones.
Operations look slightly different these days due to the precautionary measures we are taking to ensure the safety of our clients, our staff, and our partners.
In an attempt to address any concerns you might have before embarking on a project during this time, we’ve answered a few frequently asked questions below:
What kind of projects have your team started?
We are focused on wrapping up projects that were put on hold during the shutdown. Projects include a master bathroom, a whole-house renovation, a kitchen remodel, and another bathroom remodel. Since getting back to work, we also have started a project involving all new windows and doors on an old Farmhouse.
Are there any services that you are not currently able to offer / any projects you are not able to work on?
No—we are offering all of our services at this time.
What are the primary changes in how you’re conducting operations now versus before COVID-19?
While face-to-face meetings were not an option, we adopted video conference meetings both with staff and clients.
What precautionary / safety measures are you taking while working to keep both your team and clients safe?
To provide the utmost attention and care to the health and wellbeing of our team and clients, we are taking the following precautionary / safety measures:
- Only 4 people may work on inside projects at one time.
- Masks must be work on worksites and only 1 person is permitted per vehicle while traveling.
- In addition to normal cleaning and dust control, we are wiping down hard surfaces with disinfectant upon completion and using hand sanitizer throughout the day.
- Anyone not feeling well or having a fever is not permitted to attend work until the cause is determined. We have not had any such cases to date.
Regardless of what the future holds, we all want to have a comfortable, safe, and enjoyable place to call home. Our homes are the greatest investments most of us have, and they are also a stable, consistent means to develop wealth.
