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

Come out introduce my self give them some background info. Find out what they need done work up a detail complete an estimate and schedule the job.

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

I'm a 4th generation trim carpenter with 20+ years in the Insurance Restoration business. I've worked on just about everything from 1800's Victorian style homes to new custom Million $ homes. 

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

All quotes are free I work up itemized estimates for Labor and materials. Sometimes the home owner prefers to perchase the materials there selves. I price all the materials + 10% this covers my overthead getting them to the job plus if I get the materials I make sure there as they should be to ensure no wasted time and trips back to the hardware store!

How did you get started in this business?

I grew up in this business my father had me doing demo on fire and water claims as early as 9 yuears old. I was experianced enough by 15 to run a crew triming homes out. By 20 I was out on my own doing just about anything. I've worked as a sub contractor for various companys all over the state. I recently finally decided to build my own brand and go after the work myself instead of getting the leads from another contractor making them a percentage off the top which makes you have to quote the job much higher. 

What types of customers have you worked with?

Home owners, Realitors, Contractors both new construction and insurance restoration.
