Philosophy

It’s simple, really: Quality, craftsmanship and trust. We stand by those three words and embody it in our work. It is our goal to build the finest, highest-quality home whatever your budget. Building homes the right way is important to us, and here’s what it means:

  • We build to meet our own high standard of quality. Our homes are built to the same high standards we would use on our own family's home.
  • We focus on accurate, conscientious budgeting and transparent budget management throughout the project.
  • We use the highest quality, low maintenance materials for customer satisfaction and durability.
  • We focus on the details, quality and perfection should not cost more or be optional.
     

Keys to Accurate Budgeting

Lazzari Construction takes great pride in attention to detail, and that starts at the very beginning of any project. Developing an accurate budget requires skill and honesty. We believe there are several key ideas to keep in mind to develop an accurate estimate:

  • If working from a plan, it’s important that the plan cover all specifications from exterior covering, roof material, level of cabinetry, counter top materials, type and grade of flooring, etc.
  • If all specifications are not well defined, the homeowner communicates their desires as best possible and the contractor supplies a reasonable and good faith estimate for the materials to meet their desires.
  • Specifying low grade materials or cutting corners in budgeting only leads to unhappy homeowners, and costly change orders. Low balling an estimate leads to dissatisfied customers and low quality work.
  • There are instances when a good faith estimate becomes inaccurate due to unforeseeable circumstances such as sharp increases in building materials or impacts due to weather. A good contractor tries to anticipate these, and communicates openly with the homeowner to try to mitigate price increase when possible. Several ways to keep costs on budget are to pre-buy when appropriate and necessary and lock-in pricing with subcontractors and suppliers
  • Throughout the building process we will schedule budget reviews to keep you informed of actual cost versus budgeted costs.  This open dialogue is helpful to keep you informed of adjustments that may need to be made --such as if materials costs were less or more than anticipated.  Should there be extra money available for upgrades or areas where more affordable options should be considered, we want you to know where you stand financially throughout the process.
