What to Expect from us During COVID-19

Our team at Basement Finishing Colorado believes communication is key in our relationships with homeowners, subcontractors, and our team. In these unpredictable times during the COVID-19 pandemic, we want you to know that the safety and health of our customers, subcontractors, and employees is our highest priority! We will cooperate fully with all local, state, and federal laws, orders, and health department directives. While we are currently moving forward on all projects, we will be exercising extreme caution. In addition to the informational letters we mailed out to our homeowners and subcontractors recently, we wanted to provide some easily accessible information here on our blog, so you can know exactly what to expect from us during this pandemic. Read on for more information on the steps we’re taking to keep everyone safe and healthy.

No-Contact Work

You can rest assured that we will continue steady progress on your basement finishing project at this time, all while being guaranteed no-contact work from our team. This means our team members and inspectors will come and go through their own basement access points or window wells, and will not enter any other area of your home or interact with you face-to-face at this time.

Strict Safety Measures

Our standard operating procedures are very strict, and involve taking extreme measures to isolate your basement while the basement finishing project is taking place. We always go to great lengths to eliminate dust, to prevent dust from traveling to other areas of the house via vents, and to remove team access to the rest of the house. We use zippers to close off wider home access and isolate the work area. It is standard procedure for workers to come and go through basement access points or window wells. 

Extra Safety Measures During COVID-19

Our team is taking more precautions than ever before at this time. Worker schedules are staggered so that there are not many people working at the same time in close proximity.  And, as we stated earlier, workers and inspectors must enter and exit the house through a window well and have their own access. In addition, there are some extra safety measures we have put in place to keep your project running smoothly—and safely. Here are the COVID-19 instructions our team members will adhere to while finishing your basement:

  • Stay home and do not report to the job site if you are symptomatic of any illness.
  • Wear proper PPE (personal protection equipment) when working with others (Facemasks, gloves, eye protection).
  • Wash and/or disinfect your hands often. Wash with soap and water for 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Practice proper pandemic social distancing . Avoid close contact with other individuals by remaining separated by a minimum of six feet. Do not work on top of each other on the job site. If necessary, wait until others are clear from the site before entering to complete your work.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes properly. Assure your mouth and nose are covered or use the inside of your elbow. Dispose of tissues properly. Immediately wash or disinfect your hands.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces often. If surfaces are dirty – clean them.
  • No handshaking.
  • Do not conduct personal interaction with homeowners while on the job site unless it pertains to an urgent matter. If the matter is urgent you must follow all social distancing directives.
  • Doors and vents will be sealed off or closed as appropriate for each job site.
  • Use basement door or window well for access as much as possible.
  • Use technology to assist as possible. Example – Skype/Facetime type of services can be used at times to share audio and visual information. Photos and video recording can also be useful. Some trips to the job site may be eliminated with the use of technology.
  • Limit trips to the job site as much as possible while remaining efficient.
  • Report any symptoms that you or your team have to a representative of Basement Finishing Colorado.
  • How Can Homeowners Help?
  • For your health and safety as well as that of our employees and subcontractors please note the following four items:
  • Please do not interact in person with those working in your home at this time unless it is absolutely required. Please use alternate means of communication. This is a health and safety recommendation for all involved.
  • Please limit the time you spend in the basement to a minimum. Of course, you will desire and need to review the work being performed and we completely support that. We only encourage you to limit this time during the current situation. Please adhere to the recommendations for covering coughs and cleaning surfaces.
  • Please communicate any questions or requests to us. No question or request is too small. We value your questions and requests. We will respond within 24 hours unless it is urgent, in which case, we will respond ASAP.
  • Please understand that the adherence to these measures may reduce the efficiency of some tasks and may lead to a delay in some jobs. In addition, suppliers and manufacturers may also encounter delays during this time. We will be proactive in communication when and if these types of delays occur. We appreciate your understanding of these realities and your willingness to work through them with us.
