What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Yes, we are required to participate in the continuing education program provided by Johnson County Kansas Contractor Licensing every year.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
My maternal grandfather was a carpenter and I have always enjoyed working with my hands. After serving 8 years in law enforcement, I chose to change careers and entered into the construction industry.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Since mid 2005, CH Construction has been producing high-end outdoor living environments, including decks, porches and 3 & 4 season rooms. Our expertise is in new construction, including kitchen and bath remodels, basement finishes and molding installations. We have experienced a surge in home repair and handyman type services over the past few years which we greatly look forward to servicing in the coming years. With a flood of unemployed workers in the construction industry it is a gamble, at best, to choose a qualified craftsman for your projects and wish to assure you that we hold those qualifications.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
CH Construction built an outdoor living space for a family in Johnson County. It was designed by Outdoor Environments, Inc and we built the project. Outdoor Environments, Inc submitted the project to NARI (National Association of the Remodeling Industry) and won a NARI award for the project. It was also featured in Kansas City Home and Gardens Magazine.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Check their references and make sure they are licensed and insured if required. Remember when shopping for a contractor/construction company, the lowest bid may cost you more in the end, when you have to hire someone to redo inferior craftsmanship and material. All contractors have overhead. If a contractor is bidding much lower then the others this may be a red flag. Consider in your decision, if the contractor will be available for you to cover warranty issues in the future. Remember always, you get what you pay for.
