Mora Contracting
Are you licensed and insured?

Mora Contracting is licensed in Florida. We carry liability, disability and worker’s compensation insurance. Our state license number is FL St. Lic. CGC1525491. If you need any additional information we’d be happy to help.

Can you provide references?

Yes we can! You may also want to check third party reviews on websites such as Google, Home Advisor, Facebook, Yahoo, Bing and more. If you would like direct customer references please contact us.

Can you help with the design phase of my project?

Yes. By working with Mora Contracting, you can take full advantage of our process, which breaks down remodeling into various components. Therefore, you can use us for design, purchase materials from us, and all the construction.

Who will manage my project? Will they be available to answer my questions? Will they be on the job site regularly?

We assign a Project Manager to every project we work on to ensure it is properly managed. The Project Manager is a Mora Contracting employee who is responsible for every phase of your remodeling project once the Remodeling Consultant has completed the design, layout and has ordered your materials. Our Project Managers personally know and meet with all the trades’ people who will be working in your home. He or she manages and constantly inspects all work done by our trades’ people during construction. The Project Manager is either present everyday for part of the day while the project is ongoing or is in contact with the trades’ people everyday to insure the project is running smoothly. The Project Manager is available to you by phone and email at all times.

I need to stay within a budget for my project. Can Mora Contracting work within that budget and help me maintain it?

Maybe. It depends upon what your budget is. During your Design Consultation the Remodeling Consultant should be able to tell you if we can work within your budget, and whether your budgetary expectations are reasonable or not. Once we set your budget and prepare a labor proposal, we keep to the price we quote you. And, because our team is knowledgeable about the products you need, we’ll be able to show you materials that should keep you within your budget.

Who will take care of securing permits?

We will assist you in the process. It is ultimately your responsibility to pay for the permits and all related fees, but we can help by preparing the paperwork required on our end and guide you through the rest. Building permits require an architect’s drawings, various plans, and other documentation. All of these items must be submitted by an expediter. We can hire these professionals on your behalf and oversee the process, or you may do it on your own if you prefer.

How can I prepare my home for the project?

It will depend upon the scope of work. You will be instructed by your Remodeling Consultant as to what exact steps you need to take. But, generally speaking, you’ll want to clear out the area being worked on of all your personal belongings that can be removed. Although, we cover the areas surrounding our work area, you’ll want to protect your furniture from dust with plastic and/or sheets.

Can I live in my home during renovation?

That depends on the scope of the project, and quite frankly, your tolerance for inconveniences. If you live on-site during a renovation, you will be inconvenienced. We typically recommend that people make alternate living arrangements during the main construction, because you will see dust, debris, workers going in and out, you will hear loud noises, and see people ripping apart what is probably your most prized possession. You may also be without certain comforts like bathroom facilities for part of the time. This can be quite disturbing to most people.

Can I leave my belongings in my home during the renovation?

Yes, but we recommend that you remove everything possible – especially your most important possessions. Although we take extreme precautions to protect your belongings, dust flies everywhere during construction. And, much of it is microscopic so no matter what we (or you) do to protect them, your belongings will get dust particles on and in them.

What measures will be taken to protect my home from dust and debris that result from construction?

We cover floors with either rosin paper or Masonite, depending on the circumstances and we block off the areas surrounding the construction area with heavy gauge plastic sheets. We also cover furniture in the surrounding area to protect it as much as possible.

What do I need to do to prepare for my kitchen renovation?

You can start by getting a good idea for the type of look and style you want. If you don’t know yet, look at some magazines, websites, or watch some home remodeling shows to get some design ideas. Then, contact us for a Design Consultation with our Remodeling Consultant. You will be instructed by your Remodeling Consultant as to what exact steps you need to take. But, generally speaking, before construction begins, you’ll want to clear out the area being worked on of all your personal belongings that can be removed. Although, we cover the areas surrounding our work area, you’ll want to protect your furniture from dust with plastic and/or sheets.

Will a Mora Contracting designer help me choose all of the materials?

Since we have all the materials you need at our showroom, yes, a Mora Contracting Remodeling consultant will help you choose everything you need.

Do I need to have design ideas before I start the renovation process?

Absolutely not; but it helps if you do. Your Design Consultation is meant to help generate ideas or work through the ones you already have.

What features should I plan to invest the most in for my new kitchen?

From a functional standpoint, cabinetry is probably the most expensive item in the kitchen, mainly because of its sheer volume. However, you can also spend a lot of money on your countertops and flooring, depending on the style and materials you like.

What features should I plan to invest the most in for my new bathroom?

Depending on your style and taste, the floor and wall tiles can be the most expensive. Other possibly considerable expenses are the fixtures and shower system.

What type of return on investment can I expect from remodeling my bathroom if I sell my home?

On average, homeowners spend just over $20,000 on a midrange bathroom renovation project, and nearly $65,000 on an upscale bathroom renovation project. At resale, midrange renovations recoup 67.2% of their costs, while upscale renovations recoup 60.2%. — August 2019, Realtor.com
