Who will be overseeing the construction of my home? Who can I reach out to with questions as they arise, and how can I contact them?
In the early planning stages of your home-building experience with Damskov, you will be introduced to a dedicated Project Manager. You will not only be able to reach your Project Manager on his/her cell phone, you will also be able to reach any of our office staff by calling the main office line.
To open lines of communication and create peace of mind, you are also given password-protected access to Co-Construct, our web-based project management system that allows you 24-hour access to your project information, schedule, photos, selections, etc.
When and how can I make changes or upgrades throughout the building process? Do all decisions need to be finalized before construction begins?
Our process is designed to allow you to make changes or upgrades in our Pre-Construction phase. During this time, we work collaboratively together with you and independent designers or architects to finalize your scope of work and specifications. You are given plenty of opportunities to present suggestions and ask for revisions.
Generally, we try to avoid changes. But, like any custom project, sometimes ideas form when we’re working on your project and you see the vision come together. During these times, we collaborate with you to creatively problem-solve and find viable solutions to the enhancements you want. We are flexible and accommodating throughout the construction process.
Do you offer free estimates?
Yes, Damskov Construction is happy to schedule a meeting, the method of which will help us determine if we are a right fit for your project. In this appointment, we will discuss your preferences, the scope of your project, and what you want to achieve. Then, we will deliver a high-level cost outline.
If at this time you are interested in moving forward with a more in-depth, proactive assessment, you will sign a pre-construction agreement, which comes with a small investment, often ranging from $5,000 to $10,000 depending on the scope of work. During this phase, we are examining design documents and building specifications, generating a preliminary estimate, and providing value engineering services toward a scope of work and budget package that meets your goals.
Does Damskov Construction offer a home warranty, and how do you handle issues?
Yes, Damskov Construction offers a five-year warranty on all of our work.
We will follow up with you after 6 months, and every year for 5 years by phone or email to make sure everything is working great and looking beautiful. We will tackle any items covered under our industry leading 5-year workmanship warranty.

How long will it take to build my home and how do you make sure we stay on schedule?
As with any complex project, the construction schedule will depend on the scope of your project, and unforeseen circumstances can delay any project.

We seamlessly involve you throughout the construction project by connecting you digitally to every milestone, leveraging technology to increase efficiency and keep your project on schedule.
How and when will the final cost of my home be determined?

Can I view a current project you’re working on?
