Being a smart business owner, no matter the type of business is about experience and doing right by your customers. After so many years of working with the same types of problems, you start to evolve your style, approach and really begin to start thinking outside of the box. Caring for Your Customers An important part of being a smart and experienced business owner, especially in an industry when people whose lives and families depend on your work, is realizing that it is not about the money, its about doing what is right. Everyone needs money, and of course, that is what drives a business, but an experienced business owner knows that if you do right by the customer and you consistently provide what you promise and prove yourself to them, the money will follow. Having a Passion for What You Do The key is that you have to really care about what it is that you do and show your customers that it is your passion. In our case, at Bishop Construction, we deal with fixing peoples homes,

If you live in Northeast Ohio, you have probably been through Lakewood, OH at one time or another. Youve seen how huge most of these homes are; whether they are duplexes or single-family home, theyre all very large. Not only are these homes large, but theyre old too, many of them built in the 20s or 30s. A Common Foundation Issue in Lakewood Style Homes With older homes of this size, we have seen a lot of issues with foundation support causing the footers to sink into the ground. The reason this has been happening is because these types of houses were built with undersized footers. Although they have big block walls with big footers all the way around the perimeter with a beam to the center of the house, they still only used two inches of concrete for the center footers as shown in the photo below. This causes the whole house to sink into the middle. So, we fix it by going under the house and putting oversized footers in underneath this center beam to re-support the beam, lift it

In our last blog, we talked about how taking out a wall or two in an office can really change the way the room feels. Likewise, more recently people have been caught up in the modern style craze. Everyone wants a house that has a nice open floor plan. However, most homes that are even a few years old were built to be very compartmentalized, where each room is its own space. Just because your house was made that way, it does not mean it has to stay that way. Bishop Construction can help you break those barriers and give you the spacious house of your dreams! It Starts with You We will get a call from a customer who wants to open up their home by taking down a few walls. More often than not, they will have something in mind as to which one they want to go and how they want it to look. So, we then go take a look at their house to see what we are working with. After assessing the structure of their home, if we can do exactly what they envisioned, we will. However, that is not always
