About this pro

It's important to me that my clients understand what and how things will be done. 

Even after decades in the field, I still love to stand back and look at the completed projects.

    Scott is very knowledgeable in the work he is projected to do and that is important for the consumer who may not know much of what is needed. He will give his honest opinion and answers to the questions you may have about the project and gives his suggestions that may help save you some cost of the project. As for my repairs to my old wood deck, it looks like new know and I am very pleased with his work that needed to be done. I would definitely hire him again if another project is needed. Thank you to S. N. Davis Carpentry!! Gerrie in Salem Wi


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

We typically like to sit down with the client and discuss what they are looking for out of the project. Quality is seen differently by different people so I want to establish what the client wants. We also discuss schedule and budgets

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

I went to New Trier East HS, Kishwaukee College, NIU, and Northwestern University. A 5 page list of certifications and workshops attended can be supplied on request. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

My pricing is done with an estimating software. I have found that its durations for work packages is very accurate and it keeps fair pricing across the board. Of course, I do have the option of adding or subtracting time based on the project details like location, walk up floors, Hard to reach or very small area to work in. 

How did you get started in this business?

I was born into it. My Dad and Grasndmother were Realtors ,Mom an Interior Designer, Grandpa was a carpenter. I started working with my grandfather at the age of 5. After working for 5 years at a coporation my brother Todd called and said lets go back to carpentry. That is pretty much the end of the story.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Always ask questions, seek advice, don't be afraid to discuss the budget. 

Don't expect to get a price on Remodeling or New Construction until you have a set of plans. Estimates are very costly. In house cost could be thousands of dollars to the contractor and time consuming. 

What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

The best question anyone can ask themselves is "do I really want to do this?" If you do then do your homework on what the project will entail and what your budget expectations shuld be.
