2 hires on Thumbtack
Nick Ghosn and his crew at G E Fay Construction have done several projects for us including remodeling work as well as drought tolerant landscape projects in several sections of our property. The professionalism and reliability is what sets them apart from the competition. We highly recommend this company for any job as I believe that no job is too big or too small for them to deliver customer oriented quality work at the best affordable price.Oct 1, 2010
What a great company to work with! G.E. Fay Construction was professional, timely, courteous, and their services were customer oriented. They set out to do our project to please us and they did! Moreover, before hiring them, we did our research and got other estimates and dollar for dollar we are 100% certain that we got the best deal in town! My husband and I would recommend them and have already referred them to family and friends.Sep 30, 2010

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Here are the general phases/steps of the contracting process: 1) Request For Proposal or RFP , 2) Client Meeting/Pre Project Walk/Site Visit, 3) review and understanding of scope, 4) Rough Order of Magnitude Estimate or ROM Estimate/Budgetary numbers, 5) Detailed review of scope/quantity take offs/finish schedule, 6) detailed project bid, and 7) Contract .... Project Execution! Developing a project and going through the motions of the contracting process, although necessary, can be long and tedious, here at GE Fay we are shifting the focus from the arduous monotony of lengthy and frustrating paperwork to the development of healthy relationships, an understanding of needs and expectations, and open communication through the development and execution of a project.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?We are first and foremost a family of builders, our executive team has been working in and around the construction and business industries for the better part of two decades. As the day to day operations manager I am a carpenter by trade and have a Bachelors degree in Construction Engineering, and Associates degree in Construction Inspection.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?The best piece of advice I can give to an individual looking to hire contractor is to take your time in choosing a licensed, qualified, and professional contractor. Ask for references and check with the license board to verify their license information. I would also recommend that you ask for several bids from different contractors to make sure you are getting a fair price, be cautious about going with the lowest bidder for they more often than not will end up asking for more money at some point. Lastly once you have chosen your contractor be sure he includes a lot of detail in his bid make sure he has been thorough in his planning, and has clearly defined the complete scope as you understand it, by not doing this you may end up having to pay later for what you thought you were paying for now.
