Regular repairs and maintenance are necessary for any community, and certainly when people are paying Home Owner’s Associations (HOA) fees, their expectations for the way the community is maintained from the common areas to the individual houses is quite high. As a board member for an HOA or as a Community Association Manager your job is to keep the community looking clean and beautiful, and maintaining the neighborhood’s amenities so they are fully functional for residents to make sure they feel they are getting the benefits they expect. Often that means hiring outside contractors to complete the upkeep and maintain the integrity of the buildings.
When it comes to working with a contractor, one of the things that puts a gold seal on how good they are is whether or not they have regularly been hired by HOAs or CAMs for large housing and apartment developments. It requires consistently delivering a high quality of service at a reasonable price to keep being hired by larger communities.
As a general contractor and a painting contractor, Mora Contracting often gets hired by HOAs and CAMs to complete large community projects that require consistency of look and quality. We want to tell you a little more about why Mora Contracting is popular with HOAs and CAMs.
Right from the bidding process you should be able to tell if a contractor is good about communicating with you. Do they answer your questions in a clear and concise manner? How long does it take them to reply to your emails or voice messages? Strong communication skills reflect a high level of integrity and hard work. At Mora, we feel it’s important to develop a professional relationship with all of our clients, vendors and employees. 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 project. 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.
HOAs and CAMs know that vetting vendors requires calling references and checking into reviews. If you look at our reviews online, on Facebook and Google, you’ll find our 4.9 star rating and the wonderful things our clients have said about us. We are also able to give contact information for people we’ve done work for who are willing to give us a reference. We make it a point to not only do the job right, but also to promptly fix whatever issues pop up along the way. We go the extra mile to make sure our clients are happy.
Getting The Job Done
One of the reasons HOAs love to hire us to do multi-house painting jobs is because, as a general contractor, we are able to handle any other repairs that may pop up at the time. Quite often when we are on a painting job we find wood rot, flaking stucco and cracked concrete. We are able to repair concrete, wood, stucco, and epoxy problems. We can do waterproofing, fascia and gutter work and door replacement. So we are a one-stop-shop, which means the jobs get done quickly, and we are able to complete them in-house, rather than looking to hire out a lot of work.
A Great Balance
We know that HOAs must collect a certain number of bids before hiring a company for the job. We also know it is a delicate balance between bids that are priced really low for competitiveness, and companies who provide high quality. At Mora, we do our best to provide a competitive bid, while making sure we can still provide stellar service and high quality.
As a contractor in SWFL we carry all the proper licensing, insurance and surety bonds. We are also on top of permitting, and are able to provide all of the necessary paperwork to go along with the bid.
We know how important it is for you to choose reliable contractors who deliver quality work. As an HOA/CAM manager, your residents are trusting you with being responsible for the look and feel, as well as the well-being of the entire community. If you hire someone who performs poorly, it reflects on you too. We promise to bring our “A-Game,” and to provide you with everything you need to make the right decision. Best of all, we also promise to do a great job in your community.
