On Time On Budget Guarantee.


What is this guarantee?
Our On-Time, On-Budget Guarantee is an exclusive benefit Smarter Remodeling offers to our customers. This guarantee provides customers with peace of mind by ensuring the Completion Date promised at the contract signing will be honored or the Company will pay a financial penalty for missing the deadline. The On-Budget portion of the guarantee provides assurances that the Company will complete the scope of work listed in the construction agreement for the price that was agreed on it. No increase in price will be generated by the Company.* This Guarantee aims to remove two of the biggest fears most homeowners have when tackling a construction project.

Will my project cost a lot more than anticipated?

This is one of the most common complaints in the construction industry as many unethical contractors use a lower price to get a contract signed and then start sending change orders to make up the difference. Sometimes costing the homeowner much more than if they would have chosen to go with a higher priced contractor from the beginning. We have spent many years perfecting our estimating system and while our price might look higher at the beginning it’s only because we have included everything your project needs to be completed so you have an accurate picture of what your total investment will be. We are so confident in our numbers that we can offer a guarantee your project will be completed for the price we quoted. No excuses.

Will it be finished within the timeframe promised?

The second most common issue homeowners find during a construction project is that it tends to linger unfinished for a long time. Much longer than anticipated. Many contractors take advantage of loose timelines in their contracts to float their jobs as they need in order to collect multiple payments from different jobs to stay in business. This practice is what makes jobs take much longer than needed. With our On Time Guarantee we remove the uncertainty of when the job will be completed. Shortly after the pre-construction meeting we produce a construction schedule that will have a start and completion date. If we exceed the completion date, we will pay you a fee which increases the longer we take to complete the job which provides us the incentive to complete jobs in a timely manner.

The Customer’s responsibility in this process.

There are several steps throughout the process of completing any project that may require input, decisions, selections, etc. by the Customer. When those decisions are required, we will try to provide the Customer with as much time as possible for any given decision. Delays or extensions as a result of the Customer requiring additional time in providing the necessary decisions may result in affecting the completion date of the project and, in turn, adjusting the agreed-upon completion date associated with the On-Time Guarantee. There is a reason we have hundreds of satisfied customers throughout the years. We do what we say we are going to do within the time we promised at the price we quoted. No excuses. And now we put it in writing with our exclusive On-Time, On-Budget Guarantee. * See Terms and Conditions for more details

Terms and Conditions

All construction agreements signed with Smarter Remodeling that contain a valid start and completion date are covered by this guarantee. Contracts without a start or completion date are not covered by the On-Time portion of this guarantee. The On-Time Guarantee will provide a compensation to the Owner of 1% of the contract price, if the Company fails to complete the project on or before the Completion Date, for every 30 days the project is delayed up to a maximum of 5%. Customer agrees the monies received as compensation are the only monies the Company will pay for any cause and Owner will not be entitled to any other compensation. Completion dates are automatically extended as per the terms of the Construction Agreement signed including, but not limited to, Sections 3.2 and 12.4 The On-Time, On-Budget Guarantee doesn’t apply when the Construction Agreement is terminated by Owner or Company The On-Time, On-Budget Guarantee will be terminated when Company is prevented from or incapable of performing its obligations according to this Agreement for any reason that is beyond its own fault which includes, but is not limited to: a) failure to make timely payments by Owner; b) Act(s) of God; c) any actions, inactions or failures to act by Owner that directly or indirectly prevent or delay Company’s work The On-Budget portion of the Guarantee ensures the Company will complete the project described in the Scope of Work for the price agreed on the Construction Agreement. It doesn’t cover increases in price as a consequence of hidden field conditions; owner’s requests for modifications to the scope of work listed in the construction agreement; changes requested to the Scope of Work by competent authorities including but not limited to Building Officials, City inspectors, etc or by design professionals like Architects or Engineers. The On-Time, On-Budget Guarantee doesn’t cover increases in price if, during the performance of this contract, the price of materials increases over 5%, through no fault of the contractor.

The best trades in the market. Guaranteed.


We have sourced over the years some of the most skilled subcontractors in the market and made them even better by providing them with continuing education in their trade, teaching financial skills that allow them grow and build a business that will last and finally providing them with resources that allow them to provide our customers the kind of experience that Smarter Remodeling has been providing for decades. Not every subcontractor can be part of our Skilled Trade Network, they have to demonstrate a commitment to excellence and go through extensive training before they are allowed to be in the network. This ensures our customers that everybody working at their properties upholds the same values that Smarter Remodeling has cultivated for years.

TESTIMONIALS

What Our Customers are Saying


Smarter Remodeling - voted in the top 50 fastest growing companies in Jacksonville! Why? Because many of us TRUSTED Fabian with our project and our budget! If you want to get your commercial or residential project done right from the first time you should give these guys a call!
Venci Danailov
Fabian Videla and the Smarter Remodeling team are the most responsive, honest and comprehensive remodeling contractors I have ever had the pleasure of working with or recommending. Whether it is for windows, kitchen remodeling, electrical and AC, or room additions, I have always found them to be attentive and ready to explain where they are at in the process, or make a better suggestion, whenever I had a question. I also have used them several times on projects at the beaches and in the Historic District with my clients and friends, many of whom will hire them for one project, then call them later to do another remodel or upgrade. An additional bonus is the high level of technical expertise used in collaborating with homeowners to assist in visualizing the final design and aesthetics as well as the importance Fabian places upon job cost accuracy from day one. Their patient and relaxed approach from inception through the final punch list is a huge plus in today’s fast paced contracting environment, and provides a degree of comfort and confidence that makes them a clear and trusted partner.
Russ Goodman
Smarter Remodeling does the job the right way! They know what is required for the project and include everything needed in the estimate. They do not leave things out of an estimate that are needed for the project just to give you a smaller estimate...only to hit you up later with change orders that jack up the price. They are knowledgeable, honest and professional...and they can help you achieve the lasting impression you desire from your remodeling project.
Hunter Malin
Fabian is nothing but professional and honest! I have worked with Smarter Remodeling on numerous projects and he has always looked out for his customers to make sure they get the best deal out there with the best installation and product. I would highly recommend Smarter Remodeling to anyone that wants the job done right the first time!
Debra Richardson

Commercial work can be very technical, but it was one thing after another. There was no hiccups, there were no problems and it was under budget. Fabian really saved us, big time. I'm happy as can be, and honestly, I thank Fabian.

John Rose

From the first time, Fabian came in and gave me his ideas and I felt so comfortable with him. He knew all the processes. We know other people that have had work done with serious complaints. We have been able to say that we did not have that experience.
