Questions and Answers
What types of jobs are the most common?
With all the types of projects that people do, I seem to have to replace locks and faucets more often. They purchase cheap items thinking that they are getting a deal, but in fact are being ripped off, because I'm back replacing that faucet in less than the warrantied time.
What are you most proud of?
I am proud of all my work. I take my time and really try to understand my clients needs and wants for their projects. My most proud project was the custom closet I constructed for the Mayor of Daytona Beach's wife for her 1,000 shoes.
I have worked on a construction site since the age of 11. I went to college and was learning carpentry because my engineering program was discontinued. When I moved to Colorado in my early 20's I was fortunate to have a master Plumber mentor me for several years in his business. I have had the privilege of constructing exquisite homes in New England, Colorado and Florida for over 20 years.
How can we save money hiring you?
I would recommend that with whatever they are looking to repair or renovate, purchase quality items so that they are not having the headache of doing the project twice.
What questions should a customer ask before hiring you?
- Do you have past clients as references?
- Can you provide a quote ahead of time?
- Is your work guaranteed?
- Will this be an individual or team job?
How many projects do you average in a year?
Depends on the types of projects. Usually 30 projects a year is fair to say now that the economy has picked up.
What do you recommend to know before hiring you?
I recommend that the customer knows exactly what their vision is for the project. On top of that know your budget and then know just how much of that budget is accessible freely to be used.
What we may not know about you?
Although I have been in construction all these years, I also had a network marketing distributorship where I lost 72 pounds in 5 months, got to be in a Global magazine because of my weightloss story and I have competed in a triathalon.
What kind of questions do customers ask you?
The most frequent questions:
- How long will this take?
- What are my options?
- What do you think of my plans?
My Answer:I'll complete this as quickly as possible. As long as everything goes according to the plans I should be done by ____.I can show you options online, or if you go to the store and you see another idea, send it to me so that I can research cost, materials, etc and we can discuss it.I always tell the customer, that their ideas sound good, but lets make sure that what you are about to do is a long lasting plan.
What is important to know about your profession?
Customers who think that DIY projects are simple based on all the reality shows must realize that this trade cannot be learned via a book or a show. It is truly an art and a craft to many of us.
Do you offer any service after finishing the work?
- Warranty up to 30 days
- Contract for work completed
- Availability via phone for any additional questions
