What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I recently graduated from Turner's School of Construction Management. Additionally, I am a part of the University of San Diego's Real Estate Development program which keeps me up to date on what is going on in the field and around San Diego.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
We have the world's simplest pricing system! We bill our guys out at $25 an hour for general demolition labor and $35 for specialty labor (safing off electrical or water). We, as a company, take between 12%-17% depending on the job to do the entire thing. No hidden costs or extras. Totally open book.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
Previously, I flipped houses on the side of my job and since I was working full time, I had to hire contractors to do the work for me. After spending a few years in the process, I decided that I could do it much cheaper and faster than the men I was hiring - so i should do it myself!
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
We recently demolished an entire house for Habitat for Humanity. We took down the house and cleared the lot - making way for 4 new homes they will be building later this year.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure the contractor you are hiring is 1) licensed and 2) insured! The last thing you want is to have the wrong bathroom demolished! Look at pictures of their portfolios online. Most importantly - make sure you meet someone face to face and verify that they are "good people". You're letting these people into your home!!!
