How did you get started in this business?
I have been involved in building trades my entire life. My father and his father was as well.
What types of customers have you worked with?
My client base has varied as much as the work and services RGC Housewrights provides. Although we do a major amount of long time work over several months on higher end homes. We do enjoy the shorter quicker projects the smaller homes such as painting and handyman services. Many times this built up of trust doing smaller projects provides us with larger long term work once the owner sees the professional outcome of our work and what we can provide
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?
don’t shop price. You will always get what your paying for. While there are many companies that provide a good service for low costs finding one is a needle in haystack. Also payment options are also something to be careful of. Don’t over pay for work and materials that haven’t been provided. Smaller projects under $500 a 50% deposit is the very max you should be paying. As job prices increase the payments should be broken down into smaller amounts. Average expensive projects should be around 20% deposit with project points achieved for each additional payment made.
What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?
Budget. Budget. Budget. Things are not what you should expect after seeing a home improvement show on TV. Many new clients oftentimes are reluctant to tell the contractor what they are willing to pay. It is vital for the contractor to know exactly what the owner is willing to pay. As an example you could consider a simple bath remodel project. New tub floor walls ceilings and floors. Toilet and vanity. On a simple low budget price for this kind of a renovation will run $9,000. While a high end bathroom renovation same size bath can go as much as $25,000. But understanding the clients budget will allow the contractor to provide owner with a realistic cost estimate and product selection that fits within their costs. Time is money for a contractor. Oftentimes a contractor will provide an estimate based upon the clients dream bath only to loose out on a job because the product selection was beyond what they were willing to pay. The result is the client lost out on a better quality contractor and the contractor lost money on a perspective client spending his or her time preparing the quote and not getting the job.
