"A Different Contracting Experience... ask me why."

Frequently asked questions:


What is Merk's final billing procedure?


Merk has a fool proof close out plan to eliminate punch list disasters that may have been by the client or       contractor. We have a complete and comprehensive close out plan.


Halfway through the client's project we make sure supplies, materials, equipment and manpower are secured for the next half of the project. We evaluate the potential obstacles to our objective of scope. We evaluate quality control to insure consistency with Merk's standards. We make sure any necessary adjustments to insure the projects success.


At 75% of the projects completion we make sure the final deliveries are on schedule. We start our internal punch list procedure with our construction team and project manager. Site visits by Mike Riehl or Craig Derk to review the project manager and crew's scope and schedule. We evaluate quality control and any potential charges by the client.


Our project manager does pre-introspection with our on site construction team prior to meeting with the client. Once this is completed, we meet with the client to discuss both their punch list and our punch lists to insure absolute identification of items that may have been missed and need to be completed. After the punch list has been achieved then and only then are we ready fo final inspection. Traditionally, Mike himself walks through the project with the client for the final inspection.
