I specialize in drywall repair, texture and painting. I do decks and handicap ramps. I do cabinet work, remodel and complete build. I do all types of flooring except carpet.
Most of my materials are either from Lowe's or Home Depot. They buy in such volume that it's difficult for other places to compete with their prices or quality. For paint preference I am a big fan of both Behr and Valspar. Both quality paints at a fair price.
Questions and Answers
How many projects do you average in a year?
I'm a small company. Most of the work I do myself. Occasionally I will bring in help, depending on the work involved. On average I would say I do perhaps 30 to 40 projects a year. I did one job that I spent 11 months on. It was the homeowner who only wanted myself on the project.
What we may not know about you?
I'm old school. I believe in doing a quality job and doing it right the first time. I take a lot of pride in what I do because my name is on my work. My work is a self-portrait of myself. If I did a sub-standard job, what would that say about me. If I'm not confident that I can perform a task correctly, I am honest and will tell the customer.
I started learning what I do at a young age, say around 10. My dad was a wizard, could do anything with his hands. I was doing this part-time on weekends and evenings and one day took the plunge and started my own business.
What types of jobs are the most common?
The most common jobs I do are drywall repair. Having to cut into a wall to repair plumbing or unfortunately, a step-thru. That is where a foot goes through the ceiling from an attic. I can come in and make it look like it never happened.
What questions should a customer ask before hiring you?
- What experience do you have in this field?
- Can you provide references?
- Can you provide photos of work done?
- Do you stand behind your work?
What kind of questions do customers ask you?
The most frequent question I get is "what is the best way to do this project?" I will offer my ideas, and occasional even an opinion, but ultimately it is the customer's choice.
What do you recommend to know before hiring you?
Have the exact scope of the work to be performed. I understand that a job is fluid and changes can occur along the way. Also have a definite budget in mind. There are always things that are either not seen or can't be seen until a project starts. A contractor definitely has to be flexible.
What are you most proud of?
The job I am most proud of is a complete remodel and refurbish of an 80 year old home. I refinished all the original woodwork, hardwood floors including the stairs, and repainted the entire interior.
How can we save money hiring you?
Do as much of the work that you feel confident in doing yourself. Many contractors charge a mark-up on materials. I do not. I produce receipts and charge a customer exactly what I pay. If an hourly job, the time spent picking up materials is charged time. If a bid job, I typically charge a $45.00 pick up/delivery fee.
What is important to know about your profession?
Well, obviously if a customer knew how to do what I do, they wouldn't be needing my services. I would say to "beware." Too many are in this just for the money and not so much to provide a quality job.
Do you offer any service after finishing the work?
The job is never finished until the customer is 100 percent satisfied. If anything is found deficient after the work is completed, I will return, at no charge to the customer to repair or replace anything found not to their liking.
