Questions Create Open Communication on Your Project.

At Silver's Contracting, it's important to us that our communication is clear and our project plans and progress are transparent. We listen to the questions and concerns of our clients and do not hesitate to ask them questions either. A proper understanding of the process for any project is crucial!


Here are some of our most commonly asked questions. We encourage you to ask these and more when you contact us - or at any time during your project!


  • How long will my project take? Each project is unique and there are many factors that can play a role in when the job is completed. Some items that can change the completion date are the weather, change orders, and lead times on materials. We work very hard to ensure that these items have little to no effect on our complete times. However, it’s important for you, the customer, to know that there are sometimes extenuating circumstances that can change the project completion date. A well-thought out plan and open communication throughout the process help to prevent and mitigate delays.

  • How much will my project cost? There are a plethora of factors that determine the cost of your project. The main items that play a role are labor, materials and difficulty of the project. These are all identified during the estimating and planning process of your project.

  • Can you help with the design of our new space? Yes! We sure can. We have amazing designers and vendors that are happy to help you select and source literally everything we will need to complete your project, to your satisfaction!

  • How do your payment terms work?Any projects requiring special order items such as windows, doors, cabinetry will require a down payment to cover the cost of those materials. Large projects typically will require a 30% down and draws will be pulled as phases are completed leaving a 10% balance due upon the completion of punch list items. We accept cash, checks and all major credit cards.

  • Do you offer financing? Yes! We understand that home renovations are typically large investments, and sometimes a necessity when disaster strikes. We have put the work in to provide financing to our customers to make their new project a reality!

  • Do you offer a workmanship warranty? Yes. While rarely needed, we offer a 1 year workmanship warranty on our work and installations, for circumstances under our control. We believe if we stand behind our work, we can provide additional value to our customers and their families. If you find any error in our workmanship after the job has been completed, simply just call us. We will get out to you ASAP to correct the error. Proper planning on the front end and collaboration throughout the project eliminates virtually all needs for warranty calls.
