Q: What advice do you have for a client looking to hire a provider like you?
A: It’s your home, ask all the questions you’d like!
Q: What is a typical project for Ravenhill?
A: Each project is unique, not only because of the people involved, but
because of the specialized processes required.
Q: How does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A: 80% of our business is referrals or repeat business. Besides reliability,
a good attitude, and craftsmanship, Ravenhill Construction brings to the
project a team of “fully vetted” subcontractors. All of our subcontractors
work as we do, company owners working on your project alongside reliable
employees. Most clients keep the names and numbers of our subcontractors in
case they want work done in the future.
Q: How much will this cost, and how long will it take to complete?
A: Before beginning any project, you as the Homeowner need to know what the project will cost and when to expect it to be complete. At Ravenhill Construction each project is “stick-built” on paper from the foundation to the framing through the finish, so we have a good idea of the cost and time a project will require. You may decide you are most comfortable with a fixed cost for the project; if so you will be provided with a detailed description and a draw schedule based on the completion of elements of the project before we begin. Changes during the project will be billed as they occur. A different approach, and one most repeat clients prefer, is called cost plus, or time and material. In this case, Ravenhill Construction keeps a close record of time and expenses and provides a bill with documentation as to just what is spent on the project, billing you for that alone at regular intervals.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The people involved, successfully meeting a challenge or solving a problem, and a pleased client.
Q: Have you ever moved a trophy moose head with an 8′ antler spread into and then, some months later, out of a second floor game room?
A: Yes. By carefully removing a twin window unit, and then using a rope and pulley system off a set of scaffolding.
Q: What is the most important key to success in any project?
A: Our communication.
