About Steve Muller
Please note: I am currently only accepting assignments as hourly and/or salaried employee for LLC's or similarly legally practicing employers. You will find I have over 20 years of construction experience working in the construction field. You may text me at 864-252-6762 and I will get back to you as soon as I am able. Please review these questions presented to me for a more full understanding of my scope of work
Questions and answers
- What types of jobs are the most common?
Sad to say, the most common type jobs I have encountered is "rework". That is to say, following behind someone else who was hired to do the work; then, my having to fix and repair numerous issues with their costly mistakes which needed to be made right.
- Tell us something customers may not know about you.
What employers do not realize immediately about me is my heartfelt dedication, along with the the time and effort, which I invest in every project I undertake. If you will review the answers I am sharing to all these questions presented to me here, you can better appreciate your wise choice in considering me for your job assignments and projects.
There is something greater than myself that drives me, motivates me and ignites the fire within my spirit. That FORCE stands behind that which can best be described as my gift, my blessing! I find immense pleasure and gratification in sharing my strengths, experiences, and understanding with others, and performing for them my craft above and beyond the norm.
As a good friend and previous coworker from the Bluegrass State once tried to say (we called him TOOFLESS WONDER), "I aim to please my own self... everybody else is tinkled pick!" (tickled pink) (LOL)
- How did you get started?
Through the patient teaching of a few accomplished and successful “Grandfather clause” general contractors and their apprentices, I became very highly skilled at general carpentry, fixture installations, specialty carpentry, construction, local and national building & fire codes. Moreover, I have thorough knowledge and accomplishments in the following: floor tile & grout work, painting & drywall finishing, plumbing & electrical upgrades, additions & refurbishing, remodels & restorations (working with, in, and around the public at all levels). Furthermore, I possess experience in warehousing & Industrial, shipping & receiving, forklift operating, organizing & inventories.
Finally, and to sum all this up, my skill and familiarity, concerning all these listed qualities, has put me in rank among the topmost candidates for ANY related job opening.
- What are the most frequent questions you get from customers? What are the answers?
The most frequently asked questions that I get from employers usually are question related to my experience, my skills and abilities, and my areas of expertise. What they fail to realize at once is this: when I am hired for a job or even considering taking on a project (let's say the job pays me five 8 hour days), I spend countless hours on my own time, researching knowledge associated with the assignment, in order to get new insights, new methods of application, and to review mistakes made by other people which they may share in forums and on websites, etc. The secrets I learn along the way were never secret at all. The information is out there for someone who has the heart to care about the work that is to be done.
- What areas of your trade do you specialize in?
Note: (I am presently accepting only hourly/salaried employment under LLC's and similarly legally practicing employers)
While employed under LLC's and G.C's, I specialized in commercial, Residential, and Retail Outlet w/Fixture Installations PLUS: Remodeling & Refurbishing Skilled Craftsman/Ceramic Tile/Painting & Sheetrock Finishing/Plumbing & Electrical/ Fill-in Superintendent/Lead man
Additional experiences and accomplishments: Manufacturing & Assembly/Order Picker/Warehouse Organizing & Inventories/Shipping & Receiving/Forklift Driver/ Agenda Scheduling/Catering & Vending/Deliveries/Route Driver/Lawn Care/Yard Work/Tree Planting/Industrial Chemical Hopper Operator (Wet & Dry Blend Hoppers)
- What questions should a customer ask before hiring a professional in your trade?
You, as an employer practicing legally hired employment for employees, may ask yourself: Can I afford the best?... Can I afford Steve Muller on my job?... Can I afford NOT having him to do my work?
- What services do you provide your customers after the work has finished?
I will stand behind my work to the best of my ability to rise on my feet another day. I will be available to contact 24/7 by phone call, text message or email.
I will ever make myself available to my employer.
- How many projects do you average in a year?
It varies... I am never too busy. But on the other hand, when I have spare time between my projects and assignments, I am constantly bettering my productivity and craftsmanship!
- Tell us about the project or job that you are most proud of (in the last 12 months).
It is hard to narrow a specific job down and label it as "the project or job I am most proud of"! As I have grown to perceive and understand PRIDE, there is good pride and bad pride. When someone takes pride in their work, that fact 'labels' the job they are doing NOW-at this very moment-as "the project or job I am most proud of"! This, to me, is a godly pride, a righteous pride!
- What brands or products do you work with?
With my working with so many multifaceted brands/products, I sometimes feel as excited as a child in a candy store. Many products demand a change in application strategy, and I usually am right on top of these different recommendations.
- What do you wish customers knew about your profession or trade?
Some of the most pressing issues in my heart for employers to know and realize are common sense matters... such as: realize every Joe Schmoes is out to make a few dollars. So just because a person bought themselves a hammer and tape measure one day, doesn't make the person capable of satisfactory completion of your projects. I personally have talked customers out of doing work that I know in my heart is a bad idea or didn't need to be done. In my profession /trade, I DO NOT want your job simply because I need a paycheck. No. There is PLENTY work and jobs I can go do that let me sleep well at nights.
- What would you recommend customers looking to save money?
For the employer looking to save money, I would recommend hiring someone, like myself, who has multiple years experience with accomplishing quality job turnovers; as well as, well... let's face it... a man in my position has already made the costly mistakes which everyone hopes to avoid. This attribute of my experience highlights yet another PLUS. Namely-my previous costly mistakes are a lesson hard learned. So, why not take advantage of my knowledge in these crucial matters.
- What information do you recommend to have readily available before looking for a professional in your trade?
In my earlier years when I was doing subcontracting, the information I had always appreciated someone to have had was pictures and ability to email them. Of course, that was not a requirement for me to pursue a matter. However, you should realize that if I had ran around chasing every idea of work and repair which people had an itch to want done, it would seem an endless road. The time it would take wouldn't allow me doing anything else. So when a person took the prerogative to show their jobs and projects through pictures and descriptions, I could pretty well do an estimate without even cranking up my truck!
- What certifications or professional affiliations do you have?
I am employed, on occasion, by several staffing agencies- CLP Skilled Resources, Tradesmen International, MDT Resources, Labor Ready. Through very recent employment in these companies, I have enjoyed working in diverse avenues of the construction trade. However, I do possess multiple years of construction accomplishments and expertise - working under OTHER general contractors and duly licensed residential builders - as an hourly and/or salaried employee.

Robert has done a lot of work for me and my company. He is very particular about the quality of his work, and is good in every phase of construction work! I would recommend his work to anyone. Not hesitant to put my name on his work! Also is very considerate of the customer that he is doing work for. I will give my recommendation to all!- poling
