Questions and Answers
What questions should a customer ask before hiring you?
3 basic questions come to mind. The first is for their business license information. Any contractor should be in good standing with the state or jurisdiction in which they operate. Second, Business insurance should be up to date with adequate coverage. General Liability, Workers Compensation and Automotive are the basics every legitimate contractor should have. Third would be for a list of referals, Call them and ask how they performed!
After working in the HVAC industry for several major building automation companies, I decided to pursue my dreams and started remodeling speculative housing. When the market shifted in 2007, My team turned toward the residential housing market and started remodeling for other people too!
How can we save money hiring you?
Be upfront with your contractor with the budget and work with them to stay within that budget. Certain things should not be shortcut, especially foundations, framing, insulation, electrical and plumbing. A good contractor will come up with very creative ways to make a room functional while maintaining their clients trust and budget.
Do you offer any service after finishing the work?
Along with basic warranty services, most of our customers ask us to perform work to shorten their "honey Do"list. Depending on our schedule, we will either perform the tasks immediately or schedule them for a more convenient time and date.
How many projects do you average in a year?
Depending on the size, we average between 25 and 30 projects per year. We schedule projects so there is minimal overlap and try to allow ample time to properly address any issues that arise.
What are you most proud of?
I am proud of all the work we perform but you know that you have a satisfied customer when they keep calling you back to perform more work. We remodled a kitchen earlier this year, from design to completion and have subsequently shored up an existing addition that was "Bouncy", Remodeled the stairway and are just finishing up the bathroom. That's Awesome!
