Is Hanson Building and Remodeling insured and bonded?
Absolutely! And so are everyone of our trade partners(plumbers, electricians, drywallers, painters, HVAC, etc). Hanson Building and Remodeling also complies with state and federal laws, by maintaining a valid general contracting license(#BC633225), exceeding by more than 6 times the state required minimum for an aggregate insurance policy, and by being a Lead Safe Certified Firm (# NAT-93241-1) with the EPA. Minnesota has a different system than bonding. By being a licensed contractor in the state of Minnesota we also contribute to the “Contractor’s Recovery Fund” which replaced the old system of bonding.
Do you work with architects and designers or do you design projects?
We prefer to work with an architect or designer on larger projects. Give us a call and we’ll suggest a few. We believe that firms should stick to their strengths. For us, that is building. We will provide simple plans and designs and are always willing to provide suggestions and general pointers. Look at our projects…we have good taste!
Do you do Green Remodeling?
Yes! Everyone of projects incorporates some aspect of green building. We are a Minnesota Greenstar Member! www.mngreenstar.org We believe that green building is not only a way to improve the health of your home and to do right by the environment, it can also make financial sense for your bottom line.
How do you charge for your work?
We provide you with a detailed scope of work prior to starting your project. This scope will have a total price which is our bid for the project. You’ll be able to see how and why each category of your project cost what it does. We want to remove all gray areas because we build our project scopes of work, just like your actual project: step by step.
Do you work during the winter?
For sure! Almost all remodeling projects can be completed year round. Foundation work for additions can be planned for prior to deep frost and begin throughout the winter. We protect project spaces as needed with proper insulation and heaters and keep adding value to your home as the snow whitens our beautiful state. Many projects, such as basement, kitchen, bath and other areas of the home can be completed without much interruption from the winter months. With proper planning, such as dumpster placement and material storage projects can proceed at a normal pace.
