What to expect from TLS Carpentry Inc.

If you're interested in having us do a project for you, we begin by meeting with you at your home to look over the project. Tim, the owner of the company, will sit down with you to assess your needs and ideas.

1. We Will Provide An Estimate

  • Take the ideas from our meeting
  • Draw up a sketch of the plans
  • Provide an estimate of the job
  • This estimate will be received in writing via mail, email or fax

2. Obtaining Your Permits

Once the design and estimate are agreed upon you have two options:

  • Option #1: We'll provide you with the detailed structure plans that you will need to take to
    your township and/or HOA to get permits (no additional charge)
  • Option #2: We will take care of getting all your permits for you, plus the cost
    of the permit. Permit fees vary according to your township. We’ll need a plot plan from you showing property lines and set backs in order to fulfill zoning requirements.

3. Starting The Project

Once all the permits are secured and we've received your contract, we'll put you in our schedule. Before the project begins, we'll need to receive your 50% deposit. Then, we'll take it from there, making all calls for necessary building inspections as needed.

4. Working The Project

Once the project starts you'll see Tim on the job to make sure that what is agreed upon is what you get. He'll make the material list and oversee the crew to assure that the job is completed to your satisfaction.

We do not subcontract our jobs out. We only use subcontractors for trades we do not specialize in such as plumbing, heating, concrete and electric as needed for your project. The subcontractors we use are carefully selected to share our values and respect for your home.

Our subcontractors are required to adhere to our “TLS Carpentry Inc. Job Site Policy”

5. Finalizing The Project

We treat your property as if it were our own. At the end of each day we organize the materials we haven't used. When we leave the job we take our trash with us. At the end of the project, you aren't left with a mess to clean up before you can enjoy the changes to your home.

When the project is completed we'll expect your balance within 15 days. We're here after the project is completed to answer any questions you might have. We stand behind our work.

We'll give you the opportunity to fill out our survey when the job is completed so we know how we've done.

For most exterior projects, we will need a plot plan provided to TLS Carpentry Inc. from the homeowner. The plot plan needs to show property lines, set back lines, etc.
