Are you ready to build a new residential or commercial building? A good way to ensure you will love the new build and it will function how you want it to is by having a good design before you start.

A solid, well-thought-out design is the best way to capture your vision and make sure it comes out exactly how you want it to be.

The design and pre-construction outline will also give you an exact guideline as to the pricing and what is included and what isn’t.

So the first question a lot of home and business owners want to know is, How do I get started? The entire process can seem overwhelming, but getting expert advice doesn’t have to be. If you call a reputable and reliable construction company, a free design consultation should be a simple formality.

New builds have a lot to consider—the zoning, materials, permits, costs, timeline, etc.—the list goes on and on. But as the expression goes, the only way to eat an elephant is a bite at a time.

In your initial meeting, you can get a pretty good overview of what goes into designing your dream house or commercial business building. Will you be working directly with the designer, what role will an architect play in the process and how much final say will you have?

Global Construction wants to answer all of these questions for you. If nothing else, you will have an expert overview from one of the leading construction companies in America.

Your dream design starts with a call to Global: (479) 246-0603.

There are different approaches when it comes to investment properties in terms of profit and managing. Some owners just want cash flow—they put very little to nothing down, have a 30-year mortgage and just want positive money coming in every month.

Other landlords want the property paid off so they can keep all of the rent money without having to pay the bank interest. Either way, for the best investment results, you need to maintain the property.

The value of the unit will increase over time as long as it is maintained. Even if you are only about cash flow, why would you throw away equity because of a lack of maintenance?

Even a “slum lord” understands certain repairs have to be addressed or you will lose the property all together. A leaky roof, for example, can cause serious water damage to the building’s infrastructure. Mold will soon follow and the longer you wait, the worst the situation will become and the more you will have to pay for repairs. Renters have certain rights when it comes to what repairs need to be completed by the property owner if they are to continue paying rent.

The good news for landlords is that repairs don’t have to cost a lot. With the right expert company, the job can be finished affordably and quickly. They can even add additions and complete other construction projects to further add value to the unit.

When it comes time to build, the first question everyone asks is, “Where do I start?” And the questions don’t stop after that.

Will the same company be able to handle my residential and commercial construction needs? Do I need an architect before I get started? How much does an architect cost? What input will I have in the design process of the new building? Will an engineer be included in the pre-build plans or do I have to outsource my own?

Not only are there a lot of questions, but there can be just as many answers from different companies. One construction company might be trying to get a huge quote to you, others might not be able to handle all of your needs and want to outsource.

The key is to start with your budget. Now, you want to leave a little wiggle room obviously, but chances are you won’t be going from 100K to 500K on a project. Whether you tell the company your budget or not, keep it in mind.

The next step is to get a quote or talk with a residential and/or commercial contractor that does it all. You’ll be paying more for third-party contractors.

If you are getting prepared to build a new building, add an addition or finally build your dream home, then it is a great time for you. New construction means building even more equity and increasing the value of the property.

But before the first shovel goes into the ground, there are a lot of local, state and federal regulations to consider. Most people don’t know the details behind every fence, access point, clean up, zoning restriction, how many yards from this and that, etc.

The good thing is, you don’t have to know any of it. All of your permitting and job safety requirement questions can be easily handled with a quick call to Global Construction.

Global operates as a complete construction service company, from project management, development and planning, to scheduling, permitting and job safety adherence.

The comprehensive approach allows Global to be experts in each individual area, such as getting the right permit for the right job.

Don’t waste time and money trying to figure out all the regulations and don’t get hit with a surprise fine for something you may have overlooked—get Global to take care of it all for you: 479-246-0603.

People have a lot of business transactions that occur in other states. It could be different offices, a rental property, sales across state lines, etc. Eventually, business owners want to expand what they have or they need to repair their existing properties in another state. So the question is, whom should they call?

Let’s look at an example: the main corporate office is located in Chicago, but the company wants to expand into Indiana and Wisconsin. The first thought many companies have is to contact a construction company in the state where they are going to build. The problem with that approach is that it becomes very difficult to know if the company is reliable and affordable.

Imagine if a construction company in your current area could take care of you in another state as well? That’s what you get with a regional construction outfit like Global.

The Global Construction network reaches from Washington to Maine, so you can ensure you are getting the right residential or commercial service, no matter how far away. Check out the service areas for yourself.

No matter where you plan on building, plan to build with Global: 479-246-0603.

If you own more than one building or investment property, there’s a much easier way to get issues fixed than dealing with multiple vendors and/or different maintenance companies. The simple solution is having the best team work on all of your buildings.

Having one reliable company do all the work is especially beneficial if your locations are spread across different counties or states. Instead of contacting multiple outlets, trying to organize the workload, following up with different contacts, etc.—everything is organized into one centralized location.

Another huge benefit is simplifying your accounting process. Enough with dealing with many different invoices, payment methods, mailing to one company, going online for another—one bill at the end of every month.

When the same company does service for your building, they get to know the structure, inside and out. That makes for the correct diagnosis of the issue and getting it fixed properly the first time. No lost time in the workers finding their way around or not being familiar with the building itself.

Global Construction will ensure your buildings and property stay in optimal condition and repairs are addressed expertly and efficiently. Global Construction wants to hear your maintenance needs and situation: (479) 246-0603.

The number one deterrent that keeps homeowners from new construction projects is the cost. That fact won’t shock too many people. If someone said, “You can get free work done to your home,” most people would be happy to add an addition, a patio, get the roof fixed, etc.

But as soon as people start thinking about the financing the project themselves, they simply say, “We don’t have the money for that.” But a lot of people don’t understand how quickly and affordably home improvements can be completed.

The first thing to consider is the scope of the work. A leaky roof many not require completely new roof construction, but perhaps just a patch. You might think adding another bedroom or bath will cost tens of thousands, when in reality the job could be a fraction of that.

Don’t guess; get an expert to give you a fair and accurate quote. It all starts with a call to a reputable company like Global Construction: (479) 246-0603. A call isn’t a contract and you won’t be billed for a conversation. But you will get a better understanding of the scope of the project and you will be one step closer to taking your vision from an idea to a reality.

Tips Landlords Can Use so Equity Continues to Build as the Home Value Increases

As the snow melts and thawing happens, pay attention to run off and any puddling or water build up around your structure. Tree roots can break underground pipes, passageways can get clogged and new pathways can get created. If water and sewage is running back towards your home or business and not away from it, then major problems can arise. If your foundation becomes compromised, the cost to fix the issue could be extreme. Contact a contractor or construction company that can give you a quick and fair assessment of the situation.

If you have investment property or if you are a landlord, it can sometimes be tricky to keep up on what needs done to your investment. One, you don’t live there so you can’t monitor and notice issues like you normally would. Two, renters are often less likely to report an issue they deem miniscule because they want to be left alone and don’t want the landlord coming around for whatever reason.

Touch base with your renters and ask them if they have noticed any issues with the property or have anything to report. You can also plan inspections and work to be completed when a renter moves out. If you know when a tenant is leaving, schedule the remodel or repair during the turn, so you don’t have an unhappy renter or have to cut rent down for a month while they deal with construction.

Investment property needs to be maintained over time if you want the true equity out of your efforts. From simple repairs to remodels and rebuilds, Global Construction will ensure the job is completed quickly, reliably and affordably. Get your questions about your new project answered now: 479-246-

The seasons are just about to change once again. For most Americans, spring is about rebirth, getting outside again and welcoming the warmer weather. But spring can have a nasty effect on homes and commercial buildings due to freezing and thawing, excessive rain and things not getting repaired from winter storm damage.

Begin your evaluation process with a simple walk through and walk around your property and building. On the inside, look for any new cracks in the drywall, paint, ceiling or where walls and edges meet. If you notice any changes from the fall, then you need to investigate the issue further.

Sometimes paint naturally cracks and peels, but most of the time there is a bigger issue. When a roof becomes compromised, for example, the water won’t just spill into one area for an easy-to-identify issue. It will seep through the roof, down the frame and slowly compromise the ceiling and drywall. By the time you notice water running down the walls, notice a drip from the ceiling or a water stain, the damage could be severe within the infrastructure.

If you see any signs of water or new damage that happened over the winter, call a construction expert immediately. The problem will only get worse and cost you more in the end, not to mention the added insurance hassle.

March is a great time to evaluate your property and to schedule service before the April showers hit. It is the same for outside of the home as well.

Are you concerned about an area of your home of business? Don’t wait for the issue to get worse—call the best construction team in America, Global Construction: 479-246-0603. Have an expert come to you and inspect the problem right away, so you know exactly what’s going on and what it will take to fix it.

There are many New Year’s resolutions that you’ll hear about around the holiday season. But there’s one that is guaranteed not to fail: new construction.

For starters, you will reap the benefits not only for the full year, but also for years to come. If you want a new kitchen, for example, once the project is complete, there’s no way your resolution of improving the way you cook won’t come true.

Another thing to consider with new construction is increasing the value of your current home or business. Every day that you let an area that needs attention go, the harder and more expensive the repair can be.

When trying to decide which company to choose for new construction, look for one that can handle absolutely every step from start to finish.

If it is a big operation, the construction company should excel in project management. They should have the ability to handle all of the details from start to finish. There’s no need for you to have to show up to the jobsite to address organizational issues.

Another big area of importance is from the design standpoint. You may have a vision in your head for a new roof, building, addition, etc., but turning that plan into blueprints is another story all together. Make sure what you want turns out exactly the way you want it to.
