COVID-19 FAQS FOR FBC REMODEL
Our design-build remodel process starts with you — your aspirations, your needs, your lifestyle.
Here at FBC we want to address the rapidly developing Coronavirus situation. We are actively monitoring The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and The World Health Organization (WHO) for Coronavirus/COVID-19 updates.
At this point in time we are currently continuing production as scheduled and will keep you informed of any future changes if necessary.
We will continue to update this page with updates related to our business functioning and COVID-19. Please contact us with any questions that aren’t answered here!
What is your company doing to protect the clients, trades, and employees?FBC Remodel is following all CDC guidelines and restrictions put in place by local and federal governments. We’ve moved nearly all business operations to virtual, reduced construction presence in homes down to one trade a day, and everyday we’re checking in with our employees, trade partners and clients, to confirm there has been no exposure to COVID-19 or risk of exposure.
Is FBC Remodel still open?Construction has been deemed an essential business and as such we are still operating in all three of our markets – Colorado, Illinois and Minnesota. Our design and corporate teams are fully virtual and our construction teams are taking extra precautions to ensure we can safely continue to work on our remodel projects. Our phone lines remain open during regular business hours and we are still accepting new projects!
How are the inspections being completed?Every municipality is different and things are changing rapidly. Our team is monitoring municipalities that we operate within daily and we will notify you as soon as we feel any of that information will impact the project. Until then it’s business as usual. Some municipalities have even moved to virtual inspections, allowing us to continue to carry on with construction projects.
How much interaction will I have with the people working in my home?
Our trade partners and employees are being asked on a daily basis if anyone is experiencing symptoms of the coronavirus, if they’ve been in close proximity with someone who has the coronavirus, or if they have traveled to a “hotspot” of the coronavirus recently. If the answer is yes to any of these, they will not be entering the home and will abide within the quarantine guidelines. All people coming in and out of the home are being asked to follow the proper safety guidelines from the CDC.
We are also limiting our trade partners to one vendor at a time. For example, framers are not overlapping work with electricians. Construction projects will now have an outhouse available for trades to use to eliminate traffic through the home.
