As it turned out, the BBQ was working just fine, but it took the specialist come out to troubleshoot before we discovered that! I appreciated the fact he did not charge me his quote of $100, but instead, just asked for $20 to cover his service call and diagnosis. In celebration of the good news, I grilled a delicious steak on the BBQ that night!Mar 30, 2018Verified
Dawson spent a significant amount of time answering questions and doing research into options before the project even started, which made him a clear choice. He had good attention to detail, but did not accurately estimate the amount of materials needed. Since we were providing the materials, this added several trips to the hardware store and extra partially used product.Feb 12, 2018VerifiedDawson N.'s reply
Hi Krista, Thank you for the great review. I do appologize for all the trips to get materials. I was really surprised it took that much paint to cover the fence. I was a pleasure working for you
Dawson was very prompt in returning phone calls as well as arriving for work. He did a great job installing 2 toilets for me and removing the old ones. He left my bathrooms very neat and tidy upon completion. I would definitely call him again for handyman services.Nov 16, 2017Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I normally charge $35 an hour, unless I bid the whole job. Working hourly ensures I will make money. If I bid a larger job that would involve more money for materials and labour so there is greater risk.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?To try and determine what it is they want to accomplish and the best way to complete the job. And to determine what type of budget they have to work with.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?The first 10 years of my Carpentry career was on the job training. Then I started doing finish carpentry. In 2003 I entered the Apprenticeship training program with the local Carpenters Union, which I was involved in for 5 years.
