What to Expect
There are basic procedures that happen in almost every remodeling project. These procedures would typically include the following steps listed below.
The demolition phase of a project may be a good time to replace any windows, vents, and doors.
Working behind walls can also mean below floors and above ceilings. Taking this into consideration before drywall and paint is important, as additional types of work that may need to be done can include plumbing, electrical, heating, air conditioning, rough-ins, subfloors and insulation.
Installation of new flooring, cabinetry, sinks, fixtures or vanities should be among the last phases of your remodel.
The final stages include details and touches such as painting, backsplashes, floor sealing, light fixtures, hardware and any additional touch-ups.
When you work with EGN Builders Group, you’ll have a dedicated project manager on site throughout the duration of the project, the assurance of having bonded, licensed and insured contractors, and discounts at local suppliers of appliances, lighting, tiles, counter tops, floors and more.
We provide a detailed estimate, including breakdown per project and payment stages, guaranteed completion on time and within budget, and consultations are always free.
Our project managers work with EGN’s highly trained team of skilled professionals and experienced contractors to provide top-notch services in the categories listed below.
The home’s electrical system must safely accommodate the lifestyle of the occupants. EGN’s skilled electricians have the training and experience to install the wiring in your home addition or new construction. Our electricians are qualified to ensure compliance with state and local building codes regarding required materials, testing, and proper labeling of dedicated circuits throughout the home. These experts can also recommend & install a control system for heating and cooling, ventilation, sprinklers and lights so you can save on energy costs.
Laying out an efficient, well-designed plumbing system requires craftsmanship and experience. Some builders choose the lowest-priced pipes and fixtures possible in an effort to accommodate a budget, but in the end this “value” can cause costly problems in the home. Most commonly, problems in new home builds include leaks, low water pressure and shifting pipes. These problems may not be observable to the untrained eye, but what may have appeared as a small sign of trouble will eventually advance to become major issues.
EGN’s licensed plumbers are skilled in the optimal layout and efficient installation of your home’s water supply, drainage and appliance fixtures. At EGN, we stand behind our plumbers to make sure your home runs smoothly, and we’ll always provide you with realistic price and time estimates.
One of the most common questions we hear when meeting new customers is “How will you design my roof?” That’s because many homeowners use their attic space as a storage area as well as housing for solar energy systems in their home. With efficient planning, we can maximize your space so you can get the most out of your attic.
Our roofers work with efficiency in mind, using special materials and architectural techniques to reflect heat and cool down your home during the summer months, leading to long-term energy savings.
As experts in the field of roofing, EGN Builders Group has years of experience building and fixing roofs and will work with you to determine your needs in order to build the most efficient roof for you.
EGN Builders can expertly answer your questions about the installation of your HVAC system, associated costs and savings potential.
Your HVAC’s ducts and registers can be found throughout the home in walls, floors and ceilings. These ducts snake through your home to provide air conditioning and ventilation.
Different types of air conditioners and systems available include: split-system central air conditioner, packaged central air conditioner, Nest thermostat system and heat pump system, to name just a few. The right air system for you will depend on the layout and structure of your home, and we’ll work with you to determine which type of system is the best fit for your needs.
Insulation plays a major factor in the reduction of energy costs and helps to maintain a comfortable home temperature. In a typical Southern California home, about 20 percent of the air that moves through the HVAC system is lost due to leaks and poorly sealed connections, resulting in higher utility bills and difficulty in maintaining a comfortable ambient temperature. EGN Builders are certified and experienced in duct testing, heating and cooling equipment installation, leak sealing and balancing of ductwork.
Proper insulation will save you money on energy costs and contribute to the comfort of your home, and it makes a significant contribution toward helping the environment. A well-insulated home means less natural gas and coal burned and up to 2,000 pounds less of environment-harming emissions released each year.
Doors & Windows
Windows are among the most complex building components in a house. As such, they contribute greatly to the architectural aesthetic and energy efficiency of the structure. The number, total area, and orientation to the sun will determine how windows affect the home’s lighting, ventilation and natural temperature of the house. Additional facts that our builders consider include thermal glass coatings (cost effectiveness and energy-saving potential), emergency egress windows (International Residential Code specifies the required parameters of the emergency egress), and installation techniques.
Even the most energy-efficient windows and doors must be installed properly, by professionals, and according to manufacturing recommendations in order to prevent moisture damage or a reduction in energy conservation. Our professionals are well-versed in every facet of proper window installation and can answer any questions you, the homeowner, may have.
EGN Builders are dedicated to the safety of your home’s structure. To ensure a sound home, it must be built on a solid foundation. Most homes in southern California are built on “slab-on-grade” or “raised” foundations, both of which are skillfully executed by our team. A foundation built by EGN Builders will be a safe, sound foundation for your home that meets your needs and fits your budget.Schedule an Estimate
