Questions About Home Remodeling

Serving Westminster and Carroll County Maryland since 1998

Here at Ducote Construction, we understand that you may have many questions about home remodeling.  We aim to provide you with the most accurate information to meet all of your needs.  If you do not find the answer you seek, please feel free to contact us at anytime and we will be sure to address your questions and concerns. 

Please take a few minutes to review the list and see if any of your questions can be answered prior to contacting us for a home remodeling quote consultation. If not, please don’t hesitate to email or call us with your questions.


How many years of experience do you have?

We have over 35 years of experience in all facets of remodeling, kitchen remodeling, screen rooms, sunrooms, windows, garages, interior and exterior home construction, and general renovation and construction projects.


Do you offer free quotes?

Yes. We will bring our estimator right to your front door. Our estimator will call to discuss your needs and schedule a time for an appointment, convenient with your schedule.


How do I get started?

Once you have identified the type and amount of remodeling work you wish to have done (many times home owners have several items on their remodeling wish list, prioritize each project as you see fit, based on your household needs and available financing), email us or give us a call to schedule a design/quote consultation.


I have some general remodeling ideas; can you help me establish which ideas will work best for my situation?

Yes. You can also go to the contact us page and email us with information that you would like to have completed. When we meet with you, we will discuss all of the options that might be available, and help to guide you for what will work best for your situation.

What are your payment options?

Payment options vary from job to job, however generally at least the price of materials and travel to the job site is calculated into the down payment. A final payment will then be due at the completion of the work. As home remodeling contractors, we often work with customers on multiple payment plans for large scope jobs. Ultimately, any unresolved payment arrangements are finalized and agreed upon between the customer and contractor during the time that the customer awards the bid to us.


What about work schedules and rules for household access by workers during the job?

This will vary with the type and scope of the work being done. You can discuss these options at any time leading up to, during, or after your design quote consultation. We will work with you to establish a plan that is amenable to you and minimizes disruptions of your ongoing household activities as much as possible.


Do you provide clean-up and debris removal upon completion of a remodeling job?

Yes. We make special efforts to minimize our foot print both during and after completing our remodeling work, so you can better enjoy the remodeling process and its rewards.


How can I be sure that Ducote Construction will complete the project as it was agreed upon while keeping the standard of quality high?

You will have a project contractor who is there to answer any questions or concerns as the project progresses. Their job is to inform you and react to any reasonable request during the project. Many customers who don’t have this open communication with the contractor feel uncomfortable and sometimes feel they are not getting the value as a result.


Will I be able to request or change things during the project?

Yes, if the modifications fit within the scope of the project, a modified quotation is created and when the customer and Ducote Construction agree, the project can easily move in that direction.
