- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
We do have hourly rates, but that is not the only way that we work. We actually prefer to do a flat rate fee once we know the full scope of the project. That way the client can feel more comfortable in knowing what they are committing to. We also try to scale our pricing, and provide discounts for larger projects.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Always have a defined scope of work for labor. That way you can confirm that all of the bids that you receive are apples to apples. The most important piece when it comes to construction labor is seeing the general contractors license number and proof of insurance. Always do your due diligence!
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
We always say that the devil is in the details and that is why we built our company the way we did. By working with us and planning your project in advance and developing a clean scope of work, you have the ability to think through all the small details before you bring someone in to start talking about labor. So many clients end up way over budget on renovations or new construction because their contract Was in place long before the design and all the little details were finalized. To us that makes no sense. In order to be properly prepared you must do your homework and we help you do that correctly!
