Your Extra Hand
About this pro
I had Richard Leach lay carpet tiles in my hallway. We discussed the pattern wanted and he gave me exactly what was discussed He took up the old carpet and readied the floor for the installation of the new carpet tiles. The job was completed on time and for the price we agreed. He has performed other small jobs for me from time and time and I have always been happy with the results.Jul 7, 2015
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Usually I charge by the hour, $15.00 per hour plus supplies. This is negotiable and in unique to whatever project I am considering.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?My method of keeping up on my type of work includes a lot of browsing and looking at hardware stores, Container store and other places that provide solutions that I can use directly or incorporate into my own unique solutions.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?After learning carpentry at home, helping design sets in various theaters, I saw where the two vocations could be intertwined. Theater design uses many shortcuts and unique means to accomplish the final results. I liked working for myself and in 2003 I started babysitting a girl who is now 14, and picked up other customers for work ranging from organizing, shopping, driving, pet sitting, and small carpentry jobs.
