Questions and answers
- How many projects do you average in a year?
It's hard to say right now because we are a new business, but I would like to hope for 1 big one per month, and maybe 3-4 smaller ones per month, but that's a minimum hopefulness. My maximum is that I would like to be working around the clock.
- What services do you provide your customers after the work has finished?
I make sure everything is neat and clean, and I offer a free comeback inspection 7 days after the work was completed to check the quality of the work. If the customer denies this option, I always have a written warranty on my work.
- What types of jobs are the most common?
I get a lot of calls for home inspections and drywall. While we've done a little bit of roofing, painting, and lawn maintenance, they're not the norm.
- What areas of your trade do you specialize in?
Drywall, drywall repair, painting, flooring, lawncare, home renovations, home inspections, property preservation, etc.
- What questions should a customer ask before hiring a professional in your trade?
How long have you been in business?
How much experience do you have?
Are you insured?
Do you have a decent crew to get the job done on time?
- What are the most frequent questions you get from customers? What are the answers?
Customers usually ask me how much something is going to cost, or they will ask about color schemes and what would look good where. I love interior design, but like my customer, I may not always be good at matching the color schemes.
- How did you get started?
I grew up in the construction business, so it's always been something that I've known, and something that I've had a passion for.
- What do you wish customers knew about your profession or trade?
That the advertising is actually a bit harder than it looks. I do offer free estimates, and always will, but it annoys me when a potential customer asks me to drive an hour to give them an estimate just to find out that they were going to do the work themselves anyway, but just wanted a professional opinion on how to do it.
- What certifications or professional affiliations do you have?
None as of yet, but we're hoping to add quite a few to our collection by the end of the year. Crossing my fingers on that one. First up? BBB
- What would you recommend customers looking to save money?
I would first ask them if they want to save money now, or save money a few years from now? If they want to save money now, they can go with the generic brands of materials to complete their projects, but if they want to save money in the future, they may want to go with a better quality now.
- What brands or products do you work with?
Mostly Ryobi or DeWalt products. I also use a lot of Stanley. All help me to get the job done either way.
- Tell us about the project or job that you are most proud of (in the last 12 months).
We've recently been working on a whole home remodel, and there are a couple of things that we've had issues with during the process that have come out great, and it looks beautiful.
- Tell us something customers may not know about you.
I am an open book. There's not really a whole lot that people don't know about me as I have no secrets, and I usually answer questions when they are asked unless they are too personal.
- What information do you recommend to have readily available before looking for a professional in your trade?
Get your own material quotes first! Go to the store, and see what the bigger materials may end up costing you because there are a lot of businesses who may take advantage of the clueless person. Also, make sure your contractor give you a detailed billing/estimate.
