Southern Coatings Renovations
I meet with the homeowner before, during and after the proejct starts to set a clear line of expectation for the project. I discuss with the crew what the expectations are for the project, starting and finish times, ensure materials are delivered and that the job site is cleaned up on a regular basis.
Transforming a home, bathroom, kitchen, basement or other project into a finished product that the homeowner is pleased to show their family, friends and guest. What I strive to achieve is the WOW! factor.
