Yes, as a professional builder we are licensed in the State of Michigan, and we carry liability and worker's compensation insurance. We also require all of our sub-contractors to carry insurance as well. You should always make sure that anyone that works on your home is properly insured.
As a custom home builder we build all different sized homes.
The easiest way to explain an allowance is with an example: If you have a $2,000.00 countertops allowance, this means that when you select your countertops if you spend $1,500.00 you will receive a credit that you can use for something else. But if you spend more than the $2,000.00 you will need to pay for the extra amount. We recommend shopping for your allowance items after the initial estimate, but before the contract.
We have worked for clients from out of the area and out of the state. In most cases, we can accommodate out-of-area clients.
