F.A.Q.

What are the benefits of the Project Planning Phase?

The main benefit of our process is that you only spend what you are comfortable spending and you know exactly what your project will look like before we begin construction.  Our process is designed to eliminate extra costs during the construction phase.  It’s a win-win process  for the homeowner and contractor.

How do you contain dust during construction?

We employ a variety of dust containment procedures to keep your home as clean as possible during construction.  Plastic sheathing is used in all doorways and floors in the work area to contain the dust during demolition.  We will have tack pads outside of these doorways that will remove dust from our shoes as we leave the work area.  There will also be plastic runners from the main entrance to the work area to keep your floors clean.  We also use air scrubbers to filter the air as we work.

Will there be a supervisor on my project?

Yes.  You will have a dedicated project manager overseeing your entire project from start to finish.  Your project manager will be on site and also working to keep your project on schedule.

Do you make the homeowner pull the permit?

No.  We pull all permits for your project if they are needed. Any contractor that makes a homeowner pull permits is either unlicensed or uninsured.

Why do you only work in the interior of homes?

We believe in being the best in what we do.  Focusing on one aspect of the remodeling industry gives us a chance to stay up to date on the latest products and trends.

Do you use sub-contractors?

Yes.  We work the finest subcontractors in the area.  Our plumbing, electrical, and HVAC work is always done by subcontractors.

Are your prices negotiable?

Your project’s design and subsequent proposal is based on your pre-established budget.  The price can be reduced by using different materials and possibly scaling down the design.  This is the only way we can lower our price and be a profitable business.

Are you a member of any trade groups or organizations?

Yes.  We are a member of the National Kitchen and Bath Association and the Medford Chamber of Commerce.

How long will it take to get the construction portion of my job started?

The project planning/design phase for a kitchen or bath usually take about 3-4 weeks.  Once this phase is complete we can apply for our permits, special order any materials,  and begin construction in about 6-8 weeks depending on lead time of materials.

How many projects do you work on at the same time?

JEMM Design and Remodeling will have no more than two projects in production at one time. We believe in giving our client’s project the attention it deserves.

Will I see my project in detail before we begin?

Yes.  During the design phase of our contract we will show you floor plans and elevations of your project so you know exactly what it will look like before we begin construction.

Do you have a warranty?

We offer an industry leading two year limited warranty.  We also inspect your completed project once a year for the first two years to see if everything is still up to our standards.

Will I receive a job schedule for my project?

Yes.  You will receive a project schedule with your signed construction contract.  You will also receive weekly emails or texts to keep you updated on our progress.

Are you an EPA Certified Renovator?

Yes.  We are EPA Certified Renovator #20895.
