THE ECOCRAFT DIFFERENCE
EcoCraft’s approach to our work is based on listening to your vision and assessing your needs. Our goal is to make you feel understood and confident throughout the process. Together, we examine the pros and cons of important choices and decide the best option for you based on your needs and budget. In addition to our thoughtful approach, our business is built on the foundation of a few key elements:
TRANSPARENT AND HONEST PRICING
At EcoCraft, we believe that integrity and trust create the foundation on which good relationships are built. That’s why we incorporate transparency in our pricing, with cost-plus contracts that foster an open and honest connection, and the use of project management software, called CoConstruct, which allows you to clearly see the costs of labor, materials, and subcontractors as they accrue. This means you’ll be positioned to make informed decisions about your options, and your budget, at every step of your project. You will only pay for what is actually done, plus a contractor’s fee. You will not get overcharged for possible discretionary charges usually attached to fixed-price contracts to “pad” their price.
DESIGN & BUILD
EcoCraft is proud to be able to offer a complete design build experience. We are highly skilled at helping you take your visions and working with them to create even better designs. The creative process that takes place here is why we love our work so much. Problem solving to make the best situation even better and finish with an extraordinary design complete with engineering and ready for permit to build. Our connection between designer and builder during the entire process is what makes a design build successful.
FIELD ISSUANCE REMODEL PROGRAM
The Field Issuance Remodel Program (FIR) is a residential remodeling program benefiting contractors working on projects in Portland, Oregon city limits. The program streamlines the often difficult permitting and inspection processes. Contractors in this program receive permits and inspections much more quickly than usual. Standards are in no way lessened, but thanks to a single on-site inspector, the communication and overall process are seamless. This also benefits homeowners, who appreciate a shorter time frame for their project. Projects can be completed with greater ease and more speed. EcoCraft is proud to be a registered member of Portland’s FIR program.
