Questions and Answers
When I was a young boy, I saw a home improvement TV show called "This Old House." I then knew I wanted to be in the construction trade. I took wood shop class in junior high school and senior high school. I also attended a 2-year trade school program and learned basic carpentry skills.
What is important to know about your profession?
It takes years to master my trades. Jack of all trades master at none. Carpenters, handymen, and painters are not drywall pros. Some people can be great at hanging Sheetrock but horrible at drywall mudding or vice versa. It takes years to master 1 trade. Sheerock installation is one trade, drywall mudding is another, metal stud framing another, etc. They all take around 5 years to master.
What are you most proud of?
Most of all my projects are from do-it-yourself-ers. They get overwhelmed and end up calling me. I then solve their stress after they notice my skills. I enjoy helping people with my services.
How many projects do you average in a year?
20 to 30. Some are 3-day jobs; others are 2-week jobs; some are 1-month jobs. I have done hundreds of projects of all kinds--residential, commercial, remodels, live-in remodels etc.
What questions should a customer ask before hiring you?
- Do you have references pertaining to your trade?
- How many years of experience do you have?
- Did you learn your trade from trial and error, or were you taught by industry professionals?
- Do you have pictures of your work?
- Do you have any how-to videos about your trade skills?
How can we save money hiring you?
Hire an owner worker-contractor, someone who can get it done. You get what you pay for. Always have access to drinking water so your hired worker doesn't get dehydrated and end up with less productivity, etc.
