AM-CATS GENERAL CONTRACTING

Interior Restoration is the effort of restoring and or integrating items in a like new appearance.  Planning and organize design of commercial and domestic interiors removing existing items of any compromising structural integrity issues. Projects may take place in a range of settings, including:

  • office spaces and industrial premises;
  • retail locations, such as shops, cafés, forecourts;
  • leisure spaces, such as hotels, cinema foyers, holiday complexes;
  • residential developments;
  • domestic properties;
  • public buildings, e.g. museums and civic buildings.

Good finish carpenters turn construction sites into attractive living spaces, this is where Am-cat steps ahead of its competition Here’s what you should know about finish carpentry. most folks think of finish carpentry as only interior trim work, but there’s much more to it than that. Finish carpentry encompasses all work done inside a house after framing, sheathing, wiring, plumbing, insulation, and drywall have been installed. This includes door and window installation and trim, fitting interior doors, wood and laminate flooring installation, wainscoting, crown molding and cabinet installation. Doing these jobs fast and well requires skill and craftsmanship. Unlike rough carpenters (or “form carpenters”) who work on the early stages of construction, finish carpenters are generally considered artisans.

They may work directly inside the home as well as in a workshop since some finish carpentry requires stationary tools. Rough carpenters evolve into finish carpenters by learning how to measure, mark and cut more accurately. With practice, splitting the pencil line with a sawcut and working to closer tolerances become second nature.  Finish carpentry makes the eye work hard and skip over imperfections. At this point, the framing carpenter has made the house plumb, level and square. Or not. A good framer can ease the finish carpenter’s job by providing plumb walls and plenty of blocking walls for attaching trim.  The finish carpenter’s job is to make the doors, windows, and cabinets work, and to make the house look good, finish carpenters must develop an eye for proportion and detail.

Calling in all final inspections

General contractors are responsible for scheduling inspections as permitted work progresses so that the Department of Buildings may inspect and verify the work being done is consistent with the permit drawings and the building code.  All building permit-related inspections must be requested using the online forms, found below. Only requests submitted on-line will be accepted.  Please do not attempt to schedule a permit-related inspection by phone.

The Department of Buildings responds to all requests for permit-related inspections on a first-come, first-served basis. You may request a specific date, and the Department will attempt to honor that request if an inspector is available. When requesting a specific date, please allow a minimum of 4 business days to 2-4 weeks.

PHASE IV OF AM-CATS RESTORATION SERVICES

We seek to get involved early in the design phase so that we can manage the project more efficiently, provide effective building solutions, and identify challenges early on to mitigate design changes before construction commencement, this involves detailed pre-construction planning crucial to successful construction and on-time delivery, and allows the client and team a clear pathway to the bidding process, construction phase, and through to completion.

Starting Phase IV, the superintendent will be coordinating with the home decor decision maker the colors of the topcoat of paint. Have a final walk through with all trades installing all final mechanical fixtures contact all associated city inspections for the final inspections and create a punch list to be created for by the owner in evaluating the workmanship with agreement in the repairs were completed as terms reflect in the signed agreement with all approves, we then schedule your move-n date.

  • Topcoat of paint (6-14 days)
  • Trades install all final mechanical fixtures (6-14 days)
  • Call for all final city inspections (2-4 weeks)
  • Punch list completion – schedule move-in (10 days)
