The project turned out to be at least 2 or 3 times more complicated than we both expected. J was very patient and tried different ways to get get the job done, and only charged me the agreed upon price. I really appreciate the hard work and definitely will recommend without hesitation.Feb 5, 2021Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?If i quote you a price and timeframe, if it goes longer than expected, i stick to that price. I won't charge extra than what we have agreed to. I consider my word binding and aim to leave customers satisfied with the work I do and the price they pay. I have a price ceiling for gas dryer ducts, new install or removal and replacement, $499 includes parts and labor. Low enough to not require a permit if it's not a part of a larger project. can be lower but will never be more than that
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Find out the specifics of the job. Ask for clarification if any is needed. Schedule. Complete work.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?Began doing work for those that I already knew personally. I've always enjoyed fixing and building things and this branched out into an occupation. As luck would have it, I really enjoy helping people and have developed a policy of being "unreasonably reasonable".
