Molding or baseboards,
Ardis came to repair my wood fence so my dog couldn't get out and to rehang a piece of drooping vinyl siding. He came on the day it was 18 degrees and did the job for me. He came back a few days later when it was warmer to make sure the repair was adequate. His fee was extremely reasonable and I was happy with the work. I will definitely use Ardis Bell again when I need a home repair. I highly recommend him.Dec 24, 2016Verified

The guy took 3 days tofix a light fixture and had all kind of excuses to do the job so we cancel itMar 2, 2016Verified
We had 2 puppies that decided to use our walls as chew toys in about 7 different places and two window sills. Ardis and Randy came out to give us an estimate, which was reasonable, and started the work that very day. They came back two days later and completed the job. Their work was excellent, they were friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. I would definitely use them again and have already referred them to two other friends. A+++ rating!Jan 1, 2016Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My prices vary and are based on the following: - Type if job - Distance to job - Condition of existing surface etc. - Accessability of work area. - Repeat customer? - Other work needed
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I prefer to see what the customer needs in person. Trying to provide a quote without seeing the problem is difficult and nearly impossible. So I initially set my bid amount to an hourly rate. Next, I setup a time to meet with the customer at the job site to see and discuss the details with the customer. Finally, I create an accurate and reasonable bid amount as well as a timetable to discuss with the customer. Getting all the details and actually seeing the project has worked well for me in the past.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I began repairing homes with my grandfather in the 1960's and continued through college in the 80's. After working as a programmer (Xerox, GD, Lockheed) for 20 years I went back to what I enjoy doing most. Helping people enjoy their homes. I became an on-call supervisorfor BMSCAT (Blackmon Mooring Catastrophe). As a supervisor, buyer, and foreman I received additional training by some of the most knowledgeable people in the industry. So my education/training is from supervised hands on experience. I do all jobs myself. For larger jobs, I will use an associate I have worked with in the past.
