Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. Make contact in person no one can give anyone a accurate bid over the phone or in an email,unless complete blue prints are supplied.
Meet the man in charge ...If the owner is to busy to speak with you in person most likely they wont handle any possible problems and you will not get the work or service you deserve.
Also get more than one bid take the bid that is in the middle ground or even twards the higher end if you have gotten many.Lots of contractors will under bid to get a job "if it is to cheap to be true it most likely is"many peolpe operate with no insurance or proper permits they hire cut rate labor and give a cut rate job be careful
Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. If you are looking for a paint job for instance.Ask if the company is charging you retail for the paint? Many contractors get very good discounts on materials and charge the customer full price.They can make a great deal of money doing this as much as an extra $1500.00
on a small 1700 sq ft home just off the material markups
I give all my customers a reciept for the materials cost and only charge the what I pay.
They pay me for my work not to scam them on materials
I save my customers an average of 20 percent off materials per job by giving them my discounts from the stores I deal with.
