Before we arrive

Tips for before we arrive

The following are tips to help ensure a successful outcome for your project with a minimal amount of inconvenience to you.

  • Tip 1

    Construction and remodeling work, particularly roofing and siding, involve a great deal of pounding. Please remove any items of sentimental or monetary value from your walls and/or shelves before the work begins, so that they are not accidently damaged during the course of the work. Additionally, Tri-County cannot be held responsible for any internal infrastructure damage that occurs as a result of said work (for example: cracks in drywall). Sometimes dirt and roofing materials can filter through the roof boards into attic space during the course of a job as well. You may want to cover any items of value you have stored in your attic, or remove them during your project. This is also true in buildings without an attic. Garages or buildings without a ceiling should also have valuables covered or removed before work begins.

  • Tip 2

    If you have any special scheduling concerns, such as not beginning the job during the time of a planned vacation or if certain time periods will not be available because of your work schedule, please be sure to let us know. Because many homeowners are not home during the hours our crew is there, it is very helpful if you provide us with a daytime telephone number where you can be reached in the event something unexpected occurs during the course of the job. We will need to use power tools during the course of your work. Is there an electrical outlet in/on the house we may use (exterior or garage outlets are sufficient)? Do you have a pet that may be bothered by the presence of our crew? Please be sure your pet is properly restrained or confined. Also, ensuring that your yard is free of pet "droppings" means less chance our crew will track a mess onto your driveway and sidewalks. Our crews work hard to keep the job site as clean as possible, and your assistance in this regard is greatly appreciated.

  • Tip 3

    Please let us know before your work begins if there are any areas of special landscaping, septic tank areas, or other areas you would like us to avoid. Our crew takes every possible precaution to prevent damage to landscaping, but some minor damage can occur. We also make every effort to thoroughly clean up when the job is finished. We typically leave a disposable job sign at the end of the job. If you do not want us to leave our job sign in your yard when the work is finished, please let someone on the crew know. You may dispose of the yard sign at your convenience, but leaving it in your yard for as much time as possible is greatly appreciated. Many different factors play a role in the scheduling of our work, such as weather, unforeseen on-the-job delays, and emergency service requests. Because of this, we are not able to provide you with a definite time when your work will be performed, but we will certainly work with you to try and meet your needs. We usually call you several days before we plan to begin your project.
