High Quality Kitchen Construction Standards

Tile Installation

Ensure grout joints are centered and minimized, creating a solid surface appearance. Ensure proper sealing of grout and treatment to reduce wear and discoloration over time. Tile spacing is centered on the room or cabinets.

Countertop | Backsplash

Take precise measurements after cabinets install for a perfect fit. Seal joint between countertop and backsplash to prevent buildup of dirt and grime. Ensure backsplash ends in the right place to create crisp aesthetic separation.

Paint Finish

Apply paint with the best finish quality – tight and crisp paint lines and consistent cutter throughout. Prepare the surface for smooth and consistent paint application without brush marks or paint fading.

Appliance Installation

Ensure appliances are installed correctly with consideration of clearance for doors, other appliances, furniture, and walkways. Properly match electrical loads and appropriate air gaps, and test functionality of all appliances.

Cabinetry

Coordinate installation with flooring to avoid surface gaps. Prepare the wall and level the floor for smooth installation with minimal adjustments.

High Quality Bathroom Construction Standards

Grout Installation

Ensure grout joints are centered and minimized, creating a solid surface appearance. Ensure proper sealing of grout and treatment to reduce wear and discoloration over time.

Tile Installation

Use waterproof cement board to minimize any moisture damage and to provide durability and longevity. Installation results in smooth flush and consistent appearance in color and depth.

Paint Finish

Apply paint with the best finish quality – tight and crisp paint lines and consistent cutter throughout. Prepare the surface for smooth and consistent paint application without brush marks or paint fading.

Plumbing

Replace shower valve when completing a bathroom renovation to eliminate the risk of having to replace the shower valve shortly after the renovation is complete.

Cabinetry

Ensure vanity is leveled properly from front-to-back and side-to-side, and is flush with the wall. Adhere properly to clearances and spaces upon install.

Mechanical | Electrical

Logically place and install electrical outlets for optimal space functionality. All mechanical and electrical work must be code compliant.

Accessories

Install accessory items such as towel bars, towel rings, and lighting according to plan specifications. Center lighting over vanity.

We do all the worrying

The Skylight construction monitoring process is frequent and rigorous to identify potential issues before they happen.

Skylight monitoring process

We guarantee the quality of your renovation against specific standards for each aspect of construction. Skylight has specific, published standards for mechanical, electrical, and plumbing installation, drywall quality, cabinetry installation, tiling, painting and fine carpentry. We conduct a detailed quality audit at each stage of the construction process, including demolition, framing, MEP (mechanical, electrical and plumbing), drywall and finishing installation. The Skylight final quality audit includes a forty-point evaluation of every aspect of the final renovation product, right down to the detail of your grout lines, the smoothness of your sink tap motion, and the detailing on your trim. If there are any issues short of everything being exactly right, we’ll fix them with no cost and no hassle for you.
