Q. What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
A. on line search, call hardware stores lumber yards and former employers for advice, frequently visit job sights and watch what is being done and ask anything that i don't know or understand fully, "Knowledge is Free But Ignorance is Expensive"
Q. Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
A. Nothing Complicated Just Contract Labor, Get Payed By The Job, Mostly A Percentage Of Material Cost Per Dollar, Like For Instant If I'm Putting A Roof On And It Cost $3,000.00 in material then The Average Cost Would Be $300.00 that's 10% of Material Cost, and $10.00 or less extra per hour for my employees if i have help, which would average from $100.00 to $300.00 End Cost depending on the experience and job of the employee. so that would all add up to plus or minus $3,600.00
Note: some times if the project is not a big project, than a set price will be made instead.
