Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. Do not use inexperienced and/or unlicensed contractors. Remodeling a kitchen or bathroom is way too complicated for a rookie. The use of these type of contractors is why there is so much discontent with contractors in general. It may seam like a deal but after the job takes twice as long as it should and every day you have to renegotiate a price, not to mention the dust you will have paid twice the price in your money, time and peace of mind.
Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. It's not a secret but there are vast amounts of information on the internet now for the client to learn about their prospective contractor. If you can't find anything then walk, no run away! Try the state contractors board, the Secretary of State for corps. and Google there company name and the owner's name.
Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?
A. How long have you been in business? How many jobs like mine have you done? Can you prove it? Do you carry worker's comp. insurance? Liability insurance? What do you do to protect my home from lead dust?
Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?
A. What is my budget or investment? Does the contractor have design experience? Does the contractor and their subs have proper licensing and insurance? What will the city permit cost? Will they require drawings?
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. It's all about the experience. We want to be a different kind of contractor and love feedback from our clients. For example a survey taken a few years beck pointed to dust being the biggest complaint by homeowners. So we construct a wall out of 2x4s and thick plastic to completely seal off the remodel area.
