Online Access for Clients
Building your new home is an exciting and important endeavour,
and Craftsman Construction wants the process to be as smooth and
enjoyable as possible. That is why we provide each of our clients with
access to a secure website with all of the details of their new home.
Whether you are at home, at work, on the road, or on vacation,
Craftsman Construction puts information at your fingertips about
your selections, upgrades, financial decisions, questions, documents,
photos, and more.
Look at the examples below to see just a few of the ways our
online client access keeps you in touch and well-informed during the
construction of your new home.
Selections and approvals made easy...
Review what selection choices you have made and see what decisions are coming up next.
View and approve upgrades online without having to fax or email signed documents back and forth
Up-to-date Financial Total
Check a running total, in real-time, of the financial decisions you have made on your new home
...And Simple communication for everyone
In addition, all of your other communications are kept organised in one place:
- Questions & Answers
- Project Milestones
Selection Sheet...see choices and stay on schedule
The site organizes selection items on a single colour-coded list, displayed with all of the pertinent allowance, pricing, and other helpful information. Upcoming selections are automatically flagged to help keep you on schedule. With just a few clicks, you can enter your choices.
Expenses & Change Orders... Eliminate "sticker shock"
Every decision made on the selection sheet is automatically reflected on the expenses page. With a single click, you can see how each of your choices have affected the final price of your home. If you need to approve a change order, you can do it electronically, saving you the time and hassle of faxing or mailing signatures to your builder.
Milestones... Understand the next steps
Builder a home is an involved process, so the site will show you a list of major milestones on your project. You can check the progress made so far and see what steps are coming next.
Questions List... Never lose answers to your questions
Over the course of a project, you will have lots of questions, and this site will help you keep all those questions, and your builder's answers, organised and in one place. Simply enter your questions here, and your builder's responses will be listed right next to them.
Builder's To-Do List.. See items as they happen
Your builder may choose to post some to-do items on the website. While you cannot add items to this list, viewing it can help give you an idea of how things are moving along on your home.
Comments, Photos, and Files.. Stop jumbled e-mails
As your progresses, you will need to have "conversations" about certain items, like asking for clarification on a selection or providing an update on a warranty request. Rather than using e-mail, you can add comments to many of the items in the site. Comments group these conversations together with the items to which they relate, which keeps information organised and available to everyone, cutting down on misunderstandings. You and your builder can also attach photos and files.
Warranty List... Easily track loose ends
Once your home is complete, you can submit warranty requests online. You can come back to the site to check the status, add comments as necessary, and then verify when they are complete.
E-Mail updates... Let new information come to you
You can access the website at any time, but if there is something updated that you need to see on the site, you will also receive an e-mail each morning letting you know.
