Read reviews that mention:
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My rate runs around $85/hr for most of the work I do. I generally work on a time and materials basis, while providing a budget to insure my clients know what the job will cost. Every job is different, and there are variables such as site access, environmental conditions that affect the time it takes in addition to the actual work. These are real costs that must be considered.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
To meet with a client to really understand what they want. . Few jobs are truly as simple as they appear, so it is important I see the work to provide a client the benefit of my experience, to expose the unexpected before we start. This allows for a very predictable outcome.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have formal training in design, engineering and project management, with over 40 years of hands-on experience in so many aspects of restoration and repair. Nearly every project brings some sort of new technique, so the learning process never really stops.
