Oak Hill Building & Remodeling, Northern Virginia’s premier home remodeler, announced this week that they will remain open during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The Company is monitoring the situation closely and has implemented several safety precautions to ensure the continued protection and safety of their workers and the general public.
“Safety is our top priority,” said Thomas Vitale of Oak Hill Building & Remodeling, “Just like everyone else, we are watching this situation closely. We recognize the immediate need to reduce the spread of disease. We will continue to take every precaution necessary to protect our employees and our valued customers.”
Oak Hill Building & Remodeling has implemented several safety measures aimed at minimizing the risk to staff and others while on the job site. The Company currently requires all employees to wear face masks and keep a reasonable distance from others while working. In order to limit exposure, the Company only permits one trade to work on each job site at a time. Until the situation changes, Oak Hill Building & Remodeling management will only come on-site when absolutely necessary.
As recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as other leading government agencies, Oak Hill Building & Remodeling is encouraging their employees to wash their hands frequently. During the outbreak, employees must carry alcohol-based hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes with them at all times. All areas will be fully sanitized upon entering and leaving and employees will wipe down all doorknobs using sanitizing wipes.
In addition to implementing stricter cleaning and safety habits while on the job site, Oak Hill Building & Remodeling has also begun giving proposal presentations via Zoom, a leading video and audio communications platform. Using Zoom, management can share screens and communicate with new and existing clients without having to come in close contact with them.
Deemed an essential business by Washington DC-area officials, construction companies like Oak Hill Building & Remodeling continue to provide vital services to individuals and businesses during these uncertain times. The construction industry, which employs over 7 million people nationwide, contributes significantly to the economic growth of the nation. Construction workers provide necessary services such as building and maintaining essential infrastructure including residential buildings, institutional buildings, and housing. These companies will likely play a leading role in the country’s recovery.
