What to Expect

South Bend Construction expectations.

south-bend-construction-expectationsIt’s not your first rodeo. We get it. You’ve had more than a few experiences with South Bend construction companies, and odds are they weren’t all pleasant. We’re changing the game, and tipping the rules in your favor. From the initial consultation where we take the time to learn about your needs, to planning the project, and fulfillment, we put the client first. Give us a shot at earning your business and you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Client Consultation

After your initial contact with HomeWorks, we assign an appropriate representative from our team to discuss your project needs. This consultant takes the necessary time to understand exactly what you are looking to accomplish and be your main line of communication.


We use the leading estimating software in the industry to create a detailed line-by-line scope of your project. A thorough cost estimate and project scope ensure all team members are on the same track. These materials include clearly defined prices for our services. They also help keep both of us focused throughout the project.


In construction, there is no good way to compare price. No two contractors do things the same way, so comparing price doesn’t work. The total value includes quality of materials, labor, communication, warranty, and whether the contractor will be around to stand behind the work after the sale. Our prices may be higher than the competition. But we believe the cost reflects a great value and an overall great experience. We do not cut corners in business, and our prices reflect that. If you are shopping price, HomeWorks may not be a good solution for you. If you value experience and quality work, HomeWorks provides exactly what you are looking for.

Project Planning

After all paperwork is signed, the consultant introduces you to your project manager. The project manager reviews the project scope with you to make sure that the details of the project are clear. The project manager works with you on scheduling to accomplish what works best for you and your family, and guides you through the selection process. During this stage, we help with many of the primary decisions, such as cabinet styles and stains, tile, granite, appliances, plumbing fixtures, windows, flooring, and paint colors or other components that suit your project. The project manager is knowledgeable on the different options and can help you to select what works best for your budget.

In this stage, you have the option of being issued an online project login that gives you access to all important project documents along with pictures, your project schedule, budgets and important milestone information.

Project Construction

The construction estimate and contract are static documents that specify what must be built. The construction process, however, is dynamic and requires highly skilled professionals. We commit an experienced lead carpenter to work on site, ensuring the project is held to high quality standards. The lead carpenter works closely with both you and the project manager to keep you well informed on the schedule and any potential issues that may arise.

Project Completion

Even after completion of your project, our relationship continues. HomeWorks is a single source solution, and we want to continue to work with you on future projects. We hope your experience compels you to refer us to your family and friends. Our industry-pioneering lifetime workmanship warranty guarantees that all aspects of the project have your complete satisfaction.
