Our Process

Our Process at PJ Builders – The Steps
We Take as Premier Builders

The PJ Builders team recognizes that the decision to renovate, remodel or build a custom home requires considerable thought and expense. You have no doubt put hours into planning and research to help determine what you’d like the final outcome of your home to be. We enjoy listening to and understanding our clients’ ideas, budgets, and goals at the very beginning and providing expert advice based on years of experience. Once we have the privilege of becoming your builder of choice, we will communicate with you throughout the entire building process – from county and city approvals to demolition to selecting your interior finishes, to beyond the completion of your home. Your project manager will keep you informed of progress during each stage, which will be captured in photos and video.

Our work is not finished until you are
completely satisfied and in awe of your home.

Initial Consultation

In order for us to understand your goals and vision, we will set up an initial consultation where we will ask questions not only related to the project, but also about your family, lifestyle and activities. By developing this partnership, we are beyond prepared to create your dream dwelling.

Please be prepared for our initial consultation by having professional architectural drawings in hand or ask about our Architect Referral Program in advance. This will allow us to create accurate cost projections and timelines. If more than one owner of the home is involved in decision-making, we recommend that all parties be present for the consultation. Before beginning work, we will discuss payment terms, start and completion dates, and any special provisions within a building agreement signed by both parties.



Once we have established our partnership, the pre-construction phase begins. We will visit your homesite or home to perform a complete, detailed analysis before meeting with the architectural team.

The pre-construction phase includes:

  • Site analysis
  • Conceptual design planning with architects and designers
  • Value engineering
  • Construction analysis
  • Cost analysis and creation of estimate (cost projection)
  • Scheduling


Once demolition and construction begin, we will regularly communicate with you throughout the duration of the project to address any changes or unpredicted issues that may arise. PJ Builders employs only the most trusted and skilled tradesmen and will keep a photographic account of each stage of the project. We are available and welcome the opportunity to address questions or concerns along the way.

The construction phase includes:

  • Site monitoring
  • Client selections of materials, finishes, etc.
  • Project management through buildertrend, a construction management software platform that provides real-time access to scheduling, change orders, documents, photos, warranty management, homebuyer selections, and more.
  • Status reporting through buildertrend
  • Photo and video progress updates



Your relationship with PJ Builders does not end once the paint has dried and the last tree has been planted. We will spend ample time to familiarize you will all new mechanical and electrical systems, educate you on any maintenance or cleaning processes, and stay in contact to ensure that your satisfaction continues far beyond project completion. We welcome the opportunity to occasionally contact you just to check in and see how you are loving your new home or remodel.

The post-construction phase includes:

  • Establishing a one-year warranty for all work done
  • Owner walk through – we walk through the home with the owner, explain systems and maintenance, and mark anything that requires finishing touches or corrections
  • Professional photo shoot of the completed project
  • Touring projects with prospective clients – our highly satisfied homeowners often allow us to tour their property to showcase our work to new clients

“The attention to detail was exemplary, and the end result nothing short of beautiful. We couldn’t have been  more satisfied with our experience. Without any hesitation, we would highly recommend PJ Builders for any build or remodel.”
