New Normal in Remodeling
First of all, on behalf of all of us at Talon Construction, we hope that you and your family are staying safe during these difficult times. We are also, very appreciative of all the health care workers, doctors, nurses and first line responders who are working hard amid very trying conditions.
The “new normal” is a phrase that we have been hearing quite a lot lately. We, at Talon Construction, have been taking the COVID-19 pandemic very seriously and have been busy dovetailing our own protective measures with those that our local, state and federal leaders have implemented. As part of our “new normal” guidelines, we are using existing technology and safe-distancing guidelines to protect our clients as well as our employees.
Design Build from your own home
Our design-build process has been re-vamped to include more protective measures. During our initial in-home visits, our estimators and designers will be wearing mouth coverings and observing all social distancing protocol including keeping a 6 foot distance between all interested parties. When it comes time for the presentation of the designs, we have been using 3D virtual presentations. Whether it’s a bathroom re-design, an expanded kitchen, a more aggressive whole house renovation, a beautiful finished basement, an in-law suite or addition, our designs via Skype, Zoom or other platforms have not suffered in the least. Think about this…… You are sitting in the comfort of your home seeing your home renovation come to life before your very eyes. It may start out as an intriguing 2D floor plan, but as it progresses, the 2D design begins to unfold into a realistic 3D virtual rendering of your space which can be viewed from almost every conceivable angle.
Field Safe Practices in the current environment
In the field, we have been limiting the number of trade professionals in the space at any given time. Each of our employees have been given hand sanitizer and antiseptic wipes to wipe down hard surfaces upon leaving the site. In many cases, we will be installing vertical containment in the form of plastic sheeting to minimize the spread of dust which inherently, will minimize the spreading of germs.
One last item to mention. Because we have more people than ever before working from home, it seems that in the “new normal” homeowners are noticing more improvements that can be made to their home and with things moving a little slower, now, might be the perfect time for you to explore some of those renovations like a new home office, or a new addition or basement remodel. So, if you are so inclined to enter into the renovation design-build world, please reach out to us and find out how we can serve you both honestly and safely!
