    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      Yes, pricing is based on square footage among other factors. However this is a bidding site so we've all offered discounts. ( :
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      We set up an appointment. I usually arrive early to look around the outside of the property. When you arrive, after speaking for a few minutes we start the inspection. I take multiple photos of the property inside and out. Any issues are noted and explained on the report. I take the extra time to show first time home buyers locations of gas, water, and electrical shutoffs. The report is completed and sent via email no later than 24 hours.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      Extensive training,experience and time in the field. Over 10 years in the trades including HVAC, plumbing, electrical and masonry.
