How We Work at Picetti Construction

Mike Picetti directly manages each and every project, meets with clients, and personally attempts 100% customer satisfaction with every project completed. Because of the direct involvement and close supervision of each and every job Picetti Construction Incorporated will only contract one or two projects at a time. Having this approach ensures that Mike Picetti can personally dedicate the time necessary to schedule and oversee each project to a timely completion without disruption or delay as well as maintain a high level of quality. Mike is very sensitive to the disruption a remodeling project on your home can cause to your family’s life. We make every effort to minimize the inconvenience and duration of a remodeling project. Whether building a new home or an addition/remodeling project Mike Picetti respects the fact that this project is your HOME. He shares your passion and desire to create a beautiful home that your family can be proud of and enjoy.

Initial Consultation- Picetti Construction realizes most homeowners are not familiar with the construction process and the costs involved. We educate our clients about the construction process and inform them what to expect during this process so they have a better understanding and can feel less anxious about their project. Mike Picetti offers and encourages pre-construction design consultations. He likes to meet with homeowners and architects early in the design phase if possible to review their drawings. Among things to be discussed would be value engineering suggestions and price per quality recommendations.

After initial consultation, if the homeowner wishes to continue, Picetti Construction will provide either a fixed cost estimate or cost of construction plus management fee estimate with description of work and proposed materials to be used. After reviewing the estimate a follow up meeting will be scheduled to go over in detail the estimate and answer any questions the homeowner may have. Customers of previously completed projects are available to contact to discuss their experience and satisfaction working with Mike Picetti as well as view previous work completed if desired.

If Picetti Construction is awarded the job a construction contract and production schedule will be prepared including important dates homeowners should have various material selections completed such as windows, roof material color, fireplaces, plumbing fixtures, tile and stone, etc. to stay on schedule for completion. A pre-construction meeting will be set to take place at the site. Items discussed will be the construction process, property access, working days and hours, protection of existing structure if any, and location for storage of construction materials. The architectural drawings will also be reviewed for completeness and consistency throughout the interior and exterior of the home.

During construction progress meetings are scheduled with the client as required to make sure the project is staying on schedule, milestones are being met, and materials are being selected on time. Job progress will be reviewed and a look ahead into the next phase will be evaluated. Mike Picetti will answer any questions or concerns the client may have at this time. Between scheduled meetings Mike is also available any day by email or phone to also answer any questions that may arise.

After completion of the project Mike will inspect the project with the client and together make a list of any outstanding items or corrections to address with a timeline to have them completed. Once the project is completed the warranty period commences, 2 years for cosmetic items, 10 years for structural related items including but not limited to foundation, framing, roof, plumbing, electrical, and HVAC systems.
