SERVICES

Sean Kelly Construction specializes in high-end residential remodeling and custom home construction. Whether we are supervising a small remodel, or building a custom home, our success stems largely from a dedication to two factors: organization and communication.

SKC features the following specialty services:

  • Green Construction
  • Residential Full House Remodeling
  • Residential Remodels
  • Foundation
  • Kitchen/Bath Remodels

Every homeowner wants a gourmet kitchen and amazing bathroom, even those who consider cooking the art of reheating food purchased at a take-out counter. However, designing a perfect kitchen/bath can be an overwhelming task.

Remodeling takes both time and money. A major remodeling with top-of-the-line appliances and cabinets can easily run more than $100,000 for a kitchen.

Allow at least four months for a remodeling; more realistically, six to eight months. It takes about two months alone for custom cabinet orders, more time for planning, order processing, shipping, demolition, installation, moving back into your kitchen and re-organization. Sean Kelly Construction knows that planning is critical so the process is trouble-free and pleasant.

All our projects are assigned a supervisor from the initial survey through to project completion. On-site personnel carry cell phones, making all our supervisors available at any time throughout the project. We go to extraordinary lengths to insure that each job flows smoothly, efficiently, and on budget.

Our unwavering attention to the business side of building benefits everyone: The Client, the Architect and the Design Team see a final product that truly reflects the original vision. Our scheduling skills allow the subcontractors get in and out with no down time which enables them to keep their prices reasonable.

If you have completed design plans ready for construction, contact us today to schedule a meeting. Call us at (415) 664-3000 or send us an email. We respond promptly to all inquiries.

GREEN REMODELING

WHAT IS A GREEN HOME REMODEL?

It's an approach to home improvement with the goal of not only making your home look better, but making it work better for both you and the environment.

Sean Kelly Construction seeks to be a leader in "Green" building systems. Sean Kelly is certified by Build It Green as a Certified Green Building Professional. We incorporate "green" building in all of our projects and are always on the lookout for new and innovative advances in this field. We understand the theory of sustainability and have the product knowledge to develop processes to manage green building practices. We have the experience to implement these practices into our projects.

"The truth is, there are some difficulties and expenses unique to green and energy-efficient remodeling, but no more so than with conventional construction. A lot of green remodeling techniques are as simple as adding extra or better insulation, properly installing high-quality windows and sealing all cracks and crevices against air leakage," says Sean. "That's all stuff we should be doing anyway."

Good planning is essential to a successful green project. The earlier a contractor is included in the design process, the better the planning will be. Sean Kelly Construction works with subcontractors and the project team to:

  • Develop costs that allow the homeowner to consider various options while trying to design green.
  • Source appropriate green materials.
  • Determine if any salvage or building reuse opportunities exist and plan accordingly.
  • Collaborate with the architect to incorporate green building language into the project specifications.

Prior to the start of construction, Sean Kelly Construction will establish a plan to successfully implement green building strategies. Examples include planning for erosion control, waste management and air quality.

Additionally, if the project is following a green rating system, we know that we need to set up the necessary documentation and systems to allow accurate tracking and record keeping.

This is where the rubber meets the road. Understanding the theory, knowing the products and developing good planning processes are meaningless unless they are implemented with precision. Sean Kelly Construction understands fully how to implement green building practices.

We know it takes time and effort to research new materials and methods, to lead the way towards building practices that reduce the negative environmental impacts associated with the construction industry.

Ultimately though, green building practices equate to great building practices.
