FAQs


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

First I, Allan Barbe the Owner, handles all this personally. . Typically, I'm contacted by a postential client via phone or email. Upon my response I contanct the client directly. I want to actually speak to the client. I listen to the client's needs and determine if we are a good fit for them. If indeed we are then I schedule a consultation with them to go over their project in person at the project location. Then I draft a proposal for the work described. Usually I will either email it back to the client or schedule another meeting with them to sit down and do over the proposal together so that I may answer any questions or make any needed revisions. It really just depends on the particular desires of the client. Upon acceptence of the proposal I take the deposit for half the total or at least enough to cover materials and tax. Schedule the work. Order materials, deliveries etc. Do the work. Receive payments according to the payment schedule of the contract throughout. Finish the project, and confirm the client is happy with everything. Then go on to the next project.


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

I've been doing this successfully for 10 years now proffessionaly. Every day. Prior I recieved hands on training from a Master Carpenter, A finish Carpenter, Master Plumber and Electrician. I worked w/ each of them on projects for roughly 6 months each. honing my skills. Then after a little over a year of doing full remodels, and propoerty preps for sale & lease. I went out on my own. Our ratings and reviews prove I know what I'm doing. This is what I do, and I love it.


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

Yes. We charge $90 per labor hour. We base the duration of time projects should take off numerous factors including experience, scope of project, The National Builders Guide, and Homewyse.com which is a wonderful tool which permits me to enter specific project into the system. For a particular zip code, then it provides me with a range our pricing should be in. I find that we are typically in the middle.


How did you get started in this business?

I started by doing work for friends and family on the side. Then I moved into a property that wasn't ready for move-in. I negotiated a care-taker agreement with the landlord. They liked my work so much they started having me rehab all their properties. THen properties they were managing, then friends, etc.  After about a year they were running out of projects. My first client was a veery large new construction project doing the full interior of a 3200 sq ft home. They loved my work. I got referrals, then more refferals... Then began to advertise a little, and here we are. 


What types of customers have you worked with?

All kinds... From young to old. Blue collar to white collar. Service workers, to Engineers, Military, Retired, you name it. I don't discriminate. It's all about the project and making the clients happy. As it gives me a great sense of accomplishment. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

JUst the look of a clients face. The happiness and joy I can bring them in a job well done. "Quality work for an honest price."


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

Do they have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau? Insured? Have they done that kind of work before. Is everything in writing? Most of all have patience. Pros that are good at what they do are busy. Very Busy. It takesa lot for a small two man company to be successful in this business. Those that are tend to be very skilled. They work on projects all day, see potential cients in the evenings & weekends, and do paperwork most evenings. All the while raising their own family. The more honest up front and transparent a client is. The more the pro is.


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

Have a good idea of what you want and what your budget is. You wouldn't go to a realtor or a car sales person having no idea what you want and no idea what your budget is. This is the same thing. No matter the size of the project.
