Building or remodeling a home is a team effort. Our goal is to work together in a positive, productive, and non-adversarial manner to deliver not just a great product but also a satisfying collaborative experience. Your peace of mind is paramount. We manage the building process to be efficient with your time, low on stress, plus fun and rewarding as well.
We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead we tailor a dedicated team that is the right size and has the right skills and experience for the job. A remarkable number of us have been with Schultz Miller for more than ten years. Many of us have been working together for decades. No matter the size of your project, you’ll have the perfect team for your job and the whole company behind you.
“The Schultz Miller team has been professional throughout the building process. Their patience and ability to listen and solve problems creatively made this project move as smoothly and efficiently as it could have.”
— Rhoady Lee, architect
We are committed to complete transparency and honest communications, starting with our preliminary estimates, which are always fair and accurate. We never bid low just to get a job. We are an “open book” contractor: All bids, invoices, and labor hours are available for your review. We track projects in an easy-to-understand yet comprehensive way, presented according to the logical sequence of construction, with subtotals at critical stages that allow you to manage how you spend your money.
We engage in value engineering throughout the building process. During pre-construction, we like to review a design for constructability and code compliance and to offer value-engineering suggestions. This effort can be a major time and cost saver. Once construction begins, we stay focused on cost control. Everyone on the team is encouraged to look for creative solutions and to speak up with suggestions.
Building homes that last means paying attention to energy and resource efficiency, durability of materials, tightness of construction, indoor air quality, and homeowner comfort – key aspects of green building. On all of our jobsites, we recycle as much construction debris as possible. Our projects have included a host of green building elements, including geothermal heating systems, solar electric and hot water systems, hydronic radiant heat, rainwater collection, reclaimed lumber, green roofs, and permeable concrete paving.
We understand how important it is for a jobsite to be safe, orderly, and as unobtrusive as it can be. We have considerable experience at managing job sites on tight urban lots; in condominium buildings; in established neighborhoods; on steep slopes; and in sensitive waterfront locations. We are extremely mindful of privacy issues involving both our clients and their neighbors.
“The level of professionalism, the attention to detail, and the quality of the craftsmanship has just been great. Frankly, that’s why we went to Schultz Miller.”
