Like all of you, Dotty Brothers has been monitoring coronavirus (COVID-19) and the impact of the pandemic on our families, employees, community, and the world. This impact continues to evolve and we are committed to taking measures that will:
- ensure the safety of our employees, business partners, and customers
- mitigate the spread of the coronavirus in our community
- keep us building beautiful homes
Dotty Brothers recognizes the severity of our current situation, however, we aim to stay grounded and respond to facts from reputable sources over our fear and emotion. We are monitoring updates from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and will continue to respond accordingly. Please also keep yourself regularly informed by accessing the website links provided above.
The construction industry will not be spared from impact by COVID-19. As is any other business in the middle of this global crisis, we are diligently seeking to understand how our operations and customers could be affected. After initial review, we determined that a disruption to the global supply chain of construction materials is most probable.
Approximately 30% of construction materials in the United States comes from China, including products like ceramic tile, sinks, lighting fixtures, nails, and screws. Depending upon materials selected for a custom home project, the origination of COVID-19 in China could result in the delay of these materials getting to construction sites. Selecting materials that are sourced domestically would be a viable and relatively simple solution to this potential problem.
Whatever the impact, we promise to work diligently to ensure that our customers are completely satisfied with the end result of the construction of their dream home.
Stay healthy, take care of your family, and lend a hand to your neighbor during this challenging time. Additionally, keep calm and wash your hands.
