Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: Founded and operated by senior citizens. All employees have more than 40 years experience. We only employee born in USA senior citizens. We service 1/5 of Texas spanning from Weatherford, TX to Bossier City, LA and from Killeen, TX to Sherman, TX, an area larger than most states encompassing up to 3 hour one way trips from our base in Rockwall, TX. Such distances incur substantial costs in terms of incurred inbound labor, fuel and vehicular expenses before anyone arrives at your job site. Therefore, no matter what Thumbtack indicates, we must pass along that cost to you at the rate of $45 per nominal hour of inbound travel. Our profit margins are minimal as we prefer to bill incurred hourly labor. Overbilling is against our reputation. No one here is a professional estimator, we do not pay for such expertise, therefore, we generally do not provide binding estimates. Our billed labor rate charges are by incurred risk, overall liability and inconvenience. Homeowners whom want Saturday, or weekday evening after 6pm, services for their own convenience are billed an additional $20 phr for our inconvenience. We do offer limited Sunday services billed at +$30 over weekday rates. Our holiday and overnight emergency response rates are +$50 over weekday rates. Additional trip fees will apply to non weekday service requests. For most grounds keeping tasks our weekday per journeyman labor rate is $55phr + trip fee + incurred materials @31.25% markup + tax. For most carpentry related tasks our weekday per journeyman labor rate is $65phr + trip fee + materials @31.25% markup + tax if appropriate. [For hanging heavy artwork, mirrors and TV sets, if heavy duty wall anchors are required we charge $3 each even if Thumbtack says included in labor fee.] For most bath and shower related tasks our weekday per journeyman rate is $85phr + trip fee + materials @31.25% markup + tax only for commercial use. For most appliance and exercise equipment repairs, our weekday per journeyman labor rate is $85phr + trip fee + 31.25% parts markup + tax. All parts to be ordered must be prepaid, including shipping and handling fees, exercise equipment is taxed. For most cabinet work our weekday per journeyman rate is $100phr + trip fee + 31.25% material markup if any, no tax if cabinet permanently fastened to dwelling. Furniture cabinets must be taxed. For wall oven installations our weekday labor rate is $130phr + trip fee + no tax. In rare occasions we can utilize apprentice labor at $45phr weekday rate or $55phr weekend and evening rate. Our apprentices are always paired with a skilled journeyman. (Qualified permanent home improvement is not taxed in Texas. Curtains, blinds, drapery and hanging pictures do not qualify, ditto for landscaping, they must be taxed.) Our forte is solving unusual and complex homeowner problems that other contractors do not have the expertise, equipment or experience to solve. As we get repeat requests for unusual tasks, we develop better means of more accurate and swifter task completion. We now manufacture stainless steel brickweep screening in response to the advancing threat of crazy ants. In response to an increasing interest in yoga ribbon and yoga swings, we manufacture an ultra safe yoga ceiling eyebolt rated at 3,000 pounds. To address many clients concerns about varmints digging under slabs and decks, we developed a means of installing a subterranean rebar curtain to a depth of 6ft at 2 inches apart. For new homes needing cabinet pulls and handles we custom modified a portable drill press to assure that every hole is perfectly aligned and no marring of the cabinet surfaces. For microwave oven installations we have developed a plastic see thru template that greatly speeds up the accurate drilling of the cabinet above. For wall ovens we acquired an aluminum hydraulic jack that makes no complaint no matter how long it has to hold the heavy often 400 pound oven. Such is our style to ever find better ways to accomplish your tasks with reliability and precision. We pay our journeymen and apprentices a living wage, a fuel stipend, a daily lunch and provide all the Power Aid that they can drink as it gets more than just hot on a good Texas summer day. All of our staff are natural born law abiding USA citizens, all have more than 40 years of home improvement experience. In the past 50 years none of our staff have ever earned a law enforcement citation for anything, not even a parking ticket, "squeaky clean folks." Note: Fees invoiced will always include both applicable trip fees, material fees, plus $22 Thumbtack lead fee regardless of any wording otherwise provided by Thumbtack. We do not waive these fees. Since all fees on Thumbtack are competitively selected by the client, no fee modification is allowed after work has started. cash or check OK. Electronic, credit or debit transactions incur 5% surcharge. Customer satisfaction! We are perfectionists! Great customer feedback is our goal, we want you to rate us 5 stars, refer us to your friends, and hire us again! If your task is a first time project for us, we thank your for the opportunity. Diversity of projects makes our job fun, and our ability to solve unique problems ever increases. Try us. Many homeowners have hired our services to fix both their own errors and the errors of other contractors. Other contractors often seek our problem solving consultation.

Appliance Installation

Very prompt response and delivered excellent service. My microwave install required some modifications as the new unit was larger than the old one. He talked me through the process, came on time, did exceptional work, and charged a fair price. Great experience!

Gentleman was very nice, got the job done, which was installing a washer and dryer. The dryer needed more work and I was walked through what needed to be done. Pricing was fair, especially for a Sunday. I would have back for more work.

Thom was great, he showed up right on time, got the transformer done in no time and also installed the Ring doorbell for me. The device did not fit flushly so Thom did some minor modification to make it so. I would definitely hire Thom again.

Professional and pleasant. I feel like the work was worth the price as there's no way I could ever get cabinet hardware installed evenly.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    For our weekday clients on this site; $65 phr general rate and bath work $85phr) + $45phr per apprentice. For clients or projects outside of the scope of this service, our services fees escalate by a combination of expertise and risk to our safety. Our labor pricing structure is public posted on our website. Our weekday material markup is 31.25%. There is no tax in Texas on home improvement goods or services, that is, goods or services permanently fastened to the dwelling or attached garage. All other goods and services are taxed, e.g, mailbox, plants, picture hanging, furniture repairs, counter-top appliance repair, exercise machine assembly, and all commercial or rental property work, etc. We prefer that clients acquire all prefinished and patented product materials on their own. When that is not possible, we will acquire materials for you weekdays at 31.25% markup. If we have to rent a truck or trailer for to haul your materials to your site, both the rental fee, fuel charges and labor fees will be invoiced to you as a marked up line item.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    1. Determine scope of work. Guide you to a better description of what work is needed. 2. Obtain accurate measurements. When necessary, we will conduct an initial no cost project assessment visit. Rarely is this necessary for appliances, or shower caulking; but is always required for closets, kitchen exhaust and anything requiring modifications. 3. Determine material availability and cost Anything prefinished or patented product its best that you buy it. Any wood to be custom cut, installed and finished, its best that we buy it. 4. Initial project scheduling. Our schedules are non-binding, actual labor hours and material costs + markup are invoiced no matter what the project schedule indicated.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    We attend trade shows, read incessantly and constantly seek new products and ever better tools. We just aquired a Walabot in-wall vision system mfg in Israel that gives unprecedented views inside walls of pipes and wires. We use the best technology available to avoid costly errors.
