- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My pricing varies slightly from job to job depending on a few certain details. Generally speaking, I charge an hourly rate and I stick to the price that I give in my estimate.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
For me, the key to working with customers is communication; therefore, I make sure I am posing the right questions to ensure that all of the customer's expectations are being met.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?
Growing up, I had the privilege of working for my dad's general contracting business. From elementary school all the way throughout college, I spent weekends and summers doing every type of job imaginable: roofing, framing, painting, mounting and installation, furniture assembly... the list goes on. After graduating from college in 2011, I pursued a career in education. It was during the summer of 2014 that I found myself wanting to get back into contracting, so I began taking on jobs on weekends and during any free time. I loved what I was doing, so in the Winter of 2016, I decided that I needed to make my side gig full-time. As hard as it was, I said goodbye to the world of education and began embarking upon the journey of starting my own full-time handyman business.
