Frequently Asked Questions

1. What type of projects do you do?

We have worked on all types of residential & commercial projects from small bathroom remodels to multi-million dollar projects including multi-family housing projects. Our range of remodeling/addition for both commercial & home projects is extremely wide. It can be as small as $5,000 or as high as $1 million plus. In past years we have been involved in constructing many new homes.

2. What is your specialty?

We pride ourselves on the fact that we will tackle almost any type of project. Typically, we specialize in commercial and new home construction, remodeling and additions. We especially enjoy taking conceptual ideas and transforming them into workable solutions from underpinning foundations to removing roofs and adding second stories. We take pride in working with you from the planning stages all the way through the completion of your new project or your remodeling job.

3. Do you subcontract all of your labor like most contractors today?

We feel that in a "custom" building environment it is important to maintain maximum control over the project's quality and schedule. Therefore, we employ our own staff of highly seasoned craftsmen and perform our own carpentry. We also provide job site visits throughout the project even when our employees are not working on the projects. This is a typical daily routine. By using our own professionals for the carpentry phases of the project, we can control the timing of a major portion of the project, and we have an overall advantage as to when phases of the project start as well as when they are completed.

4. Do you have a price per square foot to give "ball park pricing?"

Since every project is different, we hesitate to give "ball park pricing". Every new, addition, or remodeling project that we complete is vastly different. Each customer has his or her own set of specifications. We have completed projects from $85-$300 per square foot. Your project is unique and we need to approach the pricing in such a manner.

5. How do your prices compare to those of other builders in your area?

We have never had a problem being competitive in our pricing when we compare "apples to apples". We sometimes lose a job because we are underbid only to find out later that the other contractor used lesser quality building materials, or has lower standards of quality in terms of labor performance. We realize that there will always be someone who will do the job for less. We always strive to provide the best value for our clients.

6. How long has the company been in business?

Mark Baas founded the company in 1980.

7. What are your relationships with subcontractors?

We retain a group of subcontractors that literally follow us from job to job. We refer to them as our "family subs". For us to maintain high standards of quality, we feel it is absolutely necessary to know that each of the trades-people on our project is of good character and maintains competence levels second-to-none. We do not want to worry about how a subcontractor or supplier may perform. This allows us to focus on other aspects of our projects like making sure our customer's needs are met. Many of our "family subs" have performed work for Baas Construction, Inc. for over 20 years.

8. Do you allow customers to perform phases of the work on their own?

Yes. In the past we have had many clients do various phases of the project on their own. We are not opposed to this. However, we ask the client in this case to perform the work in accordance with our schedule so that we can stay on track with our overall schedule.

9. Why should we trust Baas Construction to do our construction project?

Our ability to develop trust is displayed through our past customer relationships. Our customer testimonials indicate our ability to do so. We are confident in saying that every employee of Baas Construction, Inc. is of utmost honesty and integrity. We also realize that gaining a customer's trust takes time. Our goal is to have that complete trust well before any construction begins.
