A homeowner association undertaking a renovation, repair, or modification project knows that expert support for such a significant investment is essential. Winding River offers an understanding of HOA’s unique challenges and the unique solutions they often require.
Diagnosing the problem: We find the cause before recommending the cure
If your roof is leaking, does it need to be repaired or replaced? A visual inspection may answer that question, but some problems lie beneath the surface. So we’ll dig deeper, if necessary, to find the underlying issues that need to be addressed.
Practical solutions: We look for cost-effective solutions
There are often many ways to solve a problem, but individual clients’ circumstances and constraints may make some solutions more feasible than others. First, we identify solutions that make sense. Then we’ll develop practical solutions that identify the most cost-effective options. Our approach is both professional and practical, and we focus on the issues and consider the impacts on the association’s budget and its residents.
Designing the project: Monitoring to manage and mitigate
Effective monitoring controls costs and reduces risks. Our monitoring begins before there is anything to monitor, with an on-site kick-off meeting to go over the contractor’s project details. Our goal is to get the project off to a good start and keep it on track. After construction begins, Winding River will inspect the work at critical milestones to verify that crucial requirements and construction quality standards are being met. These site visits also enable Winding River Inspection Services to identify potential problems before they are covered by a roof or hidden behind drywall.
Contract administration: We are thorough
After the board selects a solution, Winding River Inspection Services will design the project required to implement it. Designing means describing, in detail, the scope of the work, the materials to be used, and the construction quality standards that must be met. Winding River will also review the bids submitted by prospective contractors to make sure they accurately reflect the project’s scope and specifications and then help the board select a contractor capable of delivering the promised work at the promised price.
Construction project oversight: Keeping control of your project
Construction projects can generate reams of paperwork. Competent, conscientious administration of the contract ensures that important details don’t get lost. Winding River’s experienced Inspector reviews construction forms, expense statements, and requisition requests to verify that the contractor has submitted all the required documentation before payments are authorized for products or performance benchmarks.
