Our process is built around your needs.

Building Specialists, Inc. is a residential general contractor based in Roanoke, VA.


Starting the process is as easy as a phone call to our office. We will set up an initial, no-cost visit when our staff can visit your home to learn about your improvement dreams or repair needs. We encourage you to bring any ideas, questions, details, or concerns at this time so that we can incorporate them into the scope of the project. In most cases, we find this visit will last 30 to 90 minutes.



As part of the initial visit, we typically determine if architectural drawings will be necessary for completion of your project. We often encourage the incorporation of an architectural designer who can put your ideas visually onto paper. We can recommend a designer or gladly work with anyone of your choice. When the decision is made to move forward, design work will be charged on an hourly basis.



Whether your project involves architectural drawings or just a written scope of work, we will work with you to determine an appropriate budget. In most remodeling projects, we set up a pre-bid meeting at your home where each subcontractor can visit to see the existing conditions beyond the new paper blueprints. After the pre-bid meeting, the numbers are compiled and value engineered to ensure that quality and value are included in the final result.



As soon as the scope of work and budget are mutually approved, Building Specialists will prepare a written contract before proceeding with construction. This contract clearly identifies the specifications, timeline and stipulations to protect that you receive the desired project at the anticipated price. Depending on the individual project and client agreement, we are happy to work with either a fixed price or cost-plus fee basis for our service.



Building Specialists approaches each project, large and small, with care and professionalism. Your project will be matched with a superintendent who will work closely with you as the day-to-day manager of the work. Our OSHA trained superintendent will keep the worksite safe and clean. In addition, BSI incorporates a highly experienced project manager to oversee each project. The project manager and superintendent team are in contact throughout to ensure that the schedule, budget, and quality control are closely maintained. Weekly or bi-weekly meetings are established to collaborate and keep communication open as the project progresses.



As your project comes to the end, your project manager will examine all workmanship to identify areas that need improvement or completion. We encourage you to walk through the project with us to address any final questions or concerns. As good stewards of our industry, we honor a one-year warranty on all workmanship and any manufacturers’ product warranties.
