Frequently Asked Questions

This is probably the most commonly asked question.  The truth is that it depends upon several factors:
  • What is the condition of the lot where construction will take place?
  • How far away are the utility connections
  • Finishes probably have the biggest influence on the total cost:
    Style of cabinets, countertops, floor covering.  Selections of plumbing and electrical fixtures, etc.
  • Contact us for an up-to-date estimate of the current Cost/SF.
Questions and answers should indent on second line to match the first word iFor an “average” home in a “normal” construction market, you can plan for around 6 months of time for the actual construction.  Many factors can extend this timeframe:
  • Drawing plans and obtaining a building permit can take 2 – 3 months before construction can even begin.
  • Rain can prevent a project from starting.  Once the foundation of a home is poured, the rain does not slow things up too much, however, a single day rain event prior to the foundation being placed can often shut down a site for several days while the site dries out.
  • Unique or uncommon selections can often lead to delays while waiting for the product to arrive.

When you hire Don Ajamian Construction, we take safety very seriously.  That said, however, accidents sometimes happen.  It is for this reason that we require every one of our subcontractors to carry Workers Compensation Insurance and Commercial General Liability Insurance.  As a matter of practice, we collect evidence of these insurance coverage’s from every subcontractor on every project.  Further, we require the subcontractor to list the property owner as “Additionally Insured” on the policy.
