Joe Shefer was amazingly responsive to my initial inquiry on the weekend during a time when I needed reassurance the most. It is extremely stressful to schedule repairs while being highly involved in property management and tenant turnovers while out of town. Joe answered all of my questions in advance and worked me into his busy schedule to meet my narrow window of availability to travel from out of town. He and his staff were outstanding professionals. Thank you!Jun 18, 2020Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Our Pricing and charges are based upon the task or tasks at hand. Sometimes they include labor and materials, and sometimes just labor. Each job is different, with a different set of circumstances. We also require a job site inspection prior to pricing a job, as there may be things we see that the customer is not familiar with.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The process usually start with a phone call and interview. We decide if your job, and our services are a good fit. If all goes well, then we visit your property, talk about your ideas and maybe offer new ones. We then go to work pricing your products and what it takes to apply them to your job, and come up with a price. Sometimes several visits are required when it is a larger more complex job, and there are many more decisions to be made. We don't rush your choices, as you have to live with the end results, and want to make sure you'll be happy in the end.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I attended a State Technical College before they all merged into Community Colleges and took various construction related courses in blueprint interpretation, material strengths and applications, and estimation of the building process. Myself and a couple of friends got jobs with a large home building company, and after several years we had worked on just about every phase of the building process. All my learning was a "Hands On" process...
