Today continues a series about the stages of construction. Our goal is to help you understand the stages of construction, learn about how we do things and what you can expect during each stage. In this series, we will cover 3 additional stages of construction. To see the previous stages of construction, click here.
In Stage 5, the interior doors and trim are installed. All interior painting and staining is completed. Once the painting is completed, the cabinets are installed in the kitchen and bathrooms. Marble tubs and shower pans are also installed at this time. A written notice will be sent by Fulton Homes giving your orientation and closing/key release dates, as well as other valuable information pertaining to the closing process.
The interior trim package includes wall caps, interior doors & casings, window sill options, baseboards, closet shelves & poles, plus any crown, or decorative molding. Many of the surface materials used in the interior trim are manufactured wood products.
The interior trim is then prepped for paint. Trim is caulked to the drywall and nail holes are filled. Ceilings “other than bathrooms and laundry rooms” are painted with “flat” paint. Walls are painted with semi gloss eggshell paint. Wood/Masonite interior doors, door casings, baseboards, paint grade wood caps, and paint grade wood stair railing are painted with lacquer acrylic gloss enamel.
Stain grade handrails are stained per the customer’s selection. The stain on handrails is never guaranteed to match the cabinet color due to the type and natural characteristics of the wood used on handrails. All natural woods accept stain differently. Please be advised that cabinet stain color and darkness will not always be an exact match to what you see in the models or at the design center. This is also due to the type and natural characteristics of wood used on cabinets.
Cabinets are delivered when painting is completed.
This sums up the 5th stage of construction. Stay tuned for more stages and information!
