This six step break-down simplifies the procedure and makes it less overwhelming. During each step, our staff is here to happily answer any questions and offer our expert advice.
During this initial stage, clients will meet with TK Construction, Inc.’s owner/president, Todd Klippa.

This question and answer session is instrumental in evaluating your needs and desires and then implementing the appropriate plan of action.
Creating a budget is one of the most important aspects of any construction project. From day one, TK Construction, Inc. will focus on what YOU want and will figure out how to best achieve it within YOUR budget. Quality will never be compromised.If you have a project in mind but are unsure where your budget should fall, TK Construction, Inc. will help you create the preliminary budgetary numbers. We make sure all of the details are ironed out before proceeding to the actual design.
If you already have existing plans, we will work with your designer or architect to prepare a detailed price quote. If you don’t have plans, TK Construction, Inc. will put together a design contract. The design build allows you to work with our experts to create your vision. You are involved in each aspect of the design process.We make sure that your project reflects your wants, your needs, and your individual personality. Design build enables you to have one point of contact which streamlines the process of construction. In this step, the customer selects the products to be used for the project. Our team at TK Construction, Inc. will guide you in choosing the best materials from the best suppliers in the area. We will schedule appointments with professionals to help with your selections, all of whom will be made aware of your budget.
This is the point where the customer will execute the contract with TK Construction Inc. In this phase, the customer is introduced to the project manager. The project manager will discuss with the client what to expect during the project. Along with the project manager, a team of TK Construction, Inc. professionals, and other trade professionals, will begin the pre-construction process. This is the step where the contract will be signed. Once pre-construction begins, our Operations Manager, Samantha, will show you how to use Builder Trend. Builder Trend is our cloud based project management app that allows for easy communication, daily updates, as well as a calendar of events.Having access to this unique and comprehensive app allows you to check on your project as many times a day as you would like, from home or while on-the-go.
This is the day your dream project starts to come to life. TK Construction, Inc. staff and other professionals will be on site. There will be continuous communication throughout the process in the office and on site. Samantha will keep you organized and balanced with your budget through the process.

Our PM will also show you how to maintain the various finishes used throughout your home and identify any cosmetic defects that need to be corrected prior to your move. Repair of subsequent cosmetic damages (chips, dents, scratches, etc.) will be your responsibility.
