- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I like to work by the hour. I try to be as accurate as possible when preparing my estimates. My preferred hourly rate is $50. Materials are to be covered upfront by my clients, a procurement fee will be added to this cost if I am to source and transport.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I must see a project before making any financial agreement, there are few exceptions to this rule. I am normally available late afternoons to assess your project. Once I have seen it and agree to take the job I will put together a materials list. Whether I procure materials or the client does, I ask that the client cover the cost. On larger jobs I may ask for a draw(partial payment for completion of portions of project) but I will never ask for payment upfront. Once my work is done I will perform a walk through with the client to ensure you are happy. Once we both agree that the project is completed as planned you will be billed via my online paperless billing system. I accept cash, all major credit cards and eCheck. I prefer 5 day terms but as long as we are in communication I can be flexible. Keeping you as a repeat client will be on my mind the duration of the job!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have had several influential mentors during my time of learning the trade, most of my learning has been in the field. EPA lead/asbestos abatement certification Blueprint reader/writer Certification
