Covid Safety in Windows and Doors
During the year of 2020 the worldwide community is experiencing unforeseen circumstances. Covid-19 has affected everyone in a multitude of ways. For many homeowners that means putting projects on hold, for many companies that means shutting down until the situation is resolved.
Over the past few months, construction projects in Ontario have carried on because construction was deemed essential and projects were exempted from government orders that closed businesses. In the jurisdictions that halted construction operations, state and local authorities are now easing those restrictions and allowing construction to resume. As we pivot toward this next phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, construction sites will be very different than they were a few months ago and business-as-usual is likely a thing of the past.
Even during “normal” times, Forhomes Ltd has certain obligations when it comes to the health and safety of their employees. In the era of COVID-19, minimizing the spread of the virus has become a top priority. This can be particularly challenging on construction projects, as field workers, by definition, cannot work from home and often must work in very close proximity to others.
Construction projects will continue to face unique challenges in trying to minimize the risk of spreading COVID-19. More and more cities/counties are issuing requirements or guidelines specific to the construction industry as the country continues to be in need of construction work. In this article, we discuss some of the guidelines and requirements unique to the construction industry.
The window and door industry has surprisingly been booming during Covid-19 and there are many projects which Forhomes Ltd is working on/ has prepared. The reasoning behind this is that these projects require minimal homeowner interaction since the installers are working on the exterior envelope of a home.
However, there exist those who wish to continue their projects or have no choice but to do so. Forhomes ltd. is here to help with that.
Always available and prepared for precautionary measures at all times, our experienced group of project managers and installers are ready to help you begin or finish your project. We are proactive and guarantee safety and confidence in both our management and installation skills.
Since production firms still need to sell their products, they have put out various incentives. The incentives include pushing their most recent line of products significantly quicker since the increased shipping and production time means that the delta between the day the product is ordered and delivered is larger. Essentially this allows for higher quality products at the cost of an extended delivery date; everyone is trying to make the best of a bad situation.
The gist of this is to continue with their marketing and sales, this also means that they are still producing at full capacity so for those of our customers who are looking to do a project, optimistically priced, contact Forhomes Ltd. for more information.
The top things that any person looking to do a project should be prepared for are as follows:
Inquire on your timeline and the scope of your project.
What do you need to do? Are you planning on ordering items which can take an extremely long time to ship to you? Do you have an idea of exactly what you want or do you need a consultation with a project manager.
Speak to a project manager.
Even if you already have an idea of how your project will look. Speak to a project manager anyways. There might be ideas which you haven’t even considered and a project manager can help you decide and show you potentially more cost effective and efficient options. A project manager can also help with the planning of the project and optimize the timeline for you.
Decide on a timeline
We can’t stress the importance of this enough, but deciding on a timeline which works for you is important. Things are very speculative right now so being flexible is a benefit to both the company and the customer. Some things are beyond our control but having a set plan is the way to do it.
Following these three simple steps can help any person directing a renovation or a completely new project determine what is necessary for the project to be completed properly and effectively.
