Is timing important?
Modular builders have similar building time frames as on-site builders. For this reason, timely planning and coordination is essential. We stay in close contact with the builder and homeowner to be ready to complete footing and foundation work in a timely manner, as not to delay the placement of the home.
Mobile homes are pre-built usually in either 1 or 2 sections and are ordered from the manufacturer. They also require less time to setup. This usually expedites the placement of the home on the foundation, which means that the footing and foundation contractors need to be on point and on time.
What is your typical process for working with new home builders?
Our typical engagement with a new client includes a phone call to discuss job requirements (scope) and to get access to the home plans. Most importantly, we assess the client's requirements to make sure it is a fit for our company. We also provide on-site estimations free of charge, when possible. After project scope is determined, we will go out and take specific measurements and determine slope of lot. Then, we will create a refined quote for the job and either call / email the job details to the client.
After the client agrees to green light the project, we will order the materials specific to the job and schedule a date for installation. Our preference is to follow up at every chance and always allow the home builder to be involved (as much as they want) in the process. After the job is complete, we want to hear the customers feedback. This is very important to us. We like repeat business!
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Our team has over 30 years experience in the general construction industry. We specialize in concrete flat work and footings and foundations. We are also certified Allan Block installers, landscape installers, hardscapes and patio contractors, drainage and retaining wall specialists. Our company owner, Chris Santoro holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management and was practically raised in the construction industry, with tons of accessible knowledge on hand.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service?
Four Oaks Residential offers varied services and all projects are unique. It's difficult to have standard pricing because every piece of land and every project are unique. Some lots are very flat with no obstructions, some are on extreme slopes with adjacent buildings nearby. Some lots even still have homes on them! Every job is custom and we take the time to price every job individually.
Advice to modular builders looking to hire a contractor in your area?
Do your homework. Remember, there are lots of companies to choose from. Understand that cheaper is not always better. Research a company's longevity, their field of expertise and if the work is guaranteed. Look online for reviews. While they are not always 100% accurate, it generally tells a story of the company's work ethics and honesty. The best way to form a lasting relationship is to meet face to face at the first home site. Discuss what your needs are upfront and we can tell you what our capabilities and time frames are. We are building a positive business acumen and we work hard to keep our clients happy and our list growing!
Questions modular builders should think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Be as specific as you can. As contracting professionals, we need measurements and photographs of areas to be worked on as well as a point of access to the project area. As footing and foundation contractors, we usually do all of the "leg work" as far as shooting elevations and figuring material & labor estimations. Remember, every good home starts with a solid foundation.
Give us the details! If you need a driveway poured, let us know if you intend to use stained, stamped or colored concrete because the prices are different than doing a standard concrete install. For serious inquiries that match a company's offerings, most contractors will go out and give you a free estimate, including us. Most companies will credit the cost of an estimate (if they charge) towards the project cost, when hired. Make sure to hire a company that is willing to work and has the credentials for the work you require.
