How did you get started doing this type of work?
I started in this industry as an apprentice and never expected to be running a business with 7 employees. I found out that I was good at what I do and that I deal with customers from the prospective that I would want someone to deal with me on.
What types of customers have you worked with?
We are primarily a drywall company, however we do paint when the customer we're working for decides that they want painting too.
New construction drywall, Remodel drywall, Renovations, Demolitions, Full Residential, Light Commercial, Patch repair wk and Plaster repair wk.
We do all the major textures, Orange peel (light, medium, and heavy). Knock Down Textures (light, medium and heavy). Also do Hand Textures, skip trowels, and specialty print textures. We have special equipment to give you a number of designs on your walls rather than just the normal texture. Call or email us for more information regarding these.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Is the contractor licensed? How long have they been doing this kind of work? Can they provide references of recent jobs. Are they paying in on L&I for their employees?
If the company is trying too hard to get the job there maybe something up with that. How long is the job going to take. Will there be someone at the job every day?
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Drywallers are messy and the job is dusty. One thing I wish the remodel customer would understand is that no matter how well the job is masked off there still is going to be dust, that is just the nature of doing remodel work.
