What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Yes I do. I am always looking for ways to provide clients with products to save on their energy bills. Have homes function more efficiently. Utilize our resources to the maximum capacity with the minimum consumption. Recently our world is coming under fire for our over use of resources in a very inefficient manner. For example, there are machines right now in mainstream industries that can take certain plastics ( water bottles, milk containers, grocery bags, etc..) and convert them back to clean oil. Clean oil that can be used in our vehicles. Imagine the impact that would have on our landfills.
What types of customers have you worked with?
We do quite a bit of electrical and plumbing repairs. Installation of garbage disposals, faucets, sinks, toilets, and shower valves. Also though door and cabinet repairs have been very common requests. Entry door frame repairs, locks, interior door replacements, cabinet faces, cabinet missing door replaced, and cabinet base panels replaced. Gates have fallen into this category of repairs and replacements. Wood and steel gates. From that metal pool fence restoration have been requested. Though we offer a large variety of professional services.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Are they professional from the very beginning? Do they have some form of business registration, LLC, Corp, etc? How long have they been in business? Have there ever been any complaints against them, if so how were they resolved. Where does quality versus timely land on their scale of ethics. Can they offer any cost savings advice. Can they offer any preventive maintenance advice. Do they have a criminal record. What church do they attend. Are they a family oriented company. How long have they been in Arizona. Can they refer others for the services they don't provide.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Most people think construction trades are at a level where monkeys can be taught to do these jobs. The reality of it is most Tradesmen have to be very smart in what they do. Then on top of that they have to be strong and durable. The general public can't hammer a finish nail into a hardwood pallet. Most think it is just a hammer and nail. Then there are the other trades that could set their house on fire, or flood it. A masters degree is a big accomplishment for white collar. Multi trades workers have the same level of intelligence when the trades can be done to a professional building codes standard of excellence.
