Had a really good experience with Jess. She added a set of french doors to one of our rooms and I am very satisfied with her work currently.Dec 1, 2020Verified

Jess painted the interior of our 1930's era house right after we bought it. She listened to our specific instructions really well -- we wanted it done very uniformly with a sprayer -- and took care to ensure our hardwood floors and chandeliers were protected from paint. I also liked that she was willing to be flexible in terms of timing, working around the other work being done (i.e. refinishing floors, kitchen remodel) so we could move in sooner. It's also a plus in my book that she's responsive to texts - makes it so easy to get status updates, confirm timing, etc! The project came out great!!Nov 19, 2020
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I base flat-rate bids on an estimation of the time it'll take to complete a job. That usually includes adding up time spent working directly on the project, cleanup after, planning/design before, and cost of materials when applicable. I don't charge anything for travel time.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When working with new customers, in addition to going over the work that needs to be done, I like to take a moment and go over the structure of a typical job to set expectations and answer any questions that may come up from that. I'll send a document or text blurb (depending on communication format and project size) outlining what to basically expect. When we're all clear on the basics, we can schedule and get going!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Most of my learning has been on-the-job, either by learning from someone more experienced or figuring things out for myself. My formal training was a 6-month internship program with Community Rebuilds in Moab, UT. I and my 14 fellow interns built 2 low-carbon, solar-paneled, earth-plastered homes from foundation to finish under the guidance of the builders and GC. We learned the basics of safe power tool use, jobsite standards, plan reading, building codes, and a lot of specialized natural building techniques. The program is great for education, and it's also a low-income housing nonprofit working to provide these ecologically responsible, low-impact homes at affordable prices to residents of Moab struggling because of the area's quickly rising housing costs.
