I encourage your calls.  The quickest and most accurate means of getting a price for your project is by phone.  Before you call use a ruler to confirm the size of the specific issues. Every big job consists of numerous small ones. After 35 years of experience in the trades, I can usually immediately price the cost of materials and labor based upon your accurate description.  Use the “Your Job” page to upload images of the project from your smart phone.[/toggle] [toggle title=”Can I pay you with a credit card?” variation=”red”]Payment for materials and labor can be made by a major credit card, cash or check. [/toggle] [toggle title=”How long does it take to get scheduled?” variation=”red”] Most of the jobs I do are smaller in scope.   At times that may mean if we come to terms, the job may be done the next day.  Emergency service is sometimes available.[/toggle] [toggle title=”Is your labor warrantied?” variation=”red”] Yes, 1 year [/toggle] [toggle title=”What type of jobs don’t you do?” variation=”red”] I avoid painting, HVAC work, landscaping and  roofing except for light repairs.[/toggle] [toggle title=”Are there other services you can provide?” variation=”red”]I have contacts with HVAC, electrical, siding and roof contractors.  Usually these men provide excellent service at wholesale prices. I can help negotiate you project’s pricing and terms.[/toggle] [toggle title=”Do you do plumbing and/or electrical?” variation=”red”]I can and do light plumbing and electrical work. [/toggle] [toggle title=”Do you charge by the job or hour?” variation=”red”] I base the cost of a job on a combination of factors—cost of materials, time required to complete, degree of difficulty and/or access and location.  My normal daily labor rate is $240. The best approach for a customer is to assemble several smaller projects and arrange for them to be combined for the best value.[/toggle] [toggle title=”What if I cannot adequately describe the scope of the work I need to have done?” variation=”red”]I would be delighted to come out personally and give you an estimate when we meet. [/toggle] [toggle title=”Do I need to give you a deposit if we come to terms?” variation=”red”]If there are significant costs for materials and supplies, either pay for the materials with a card over the phone or give me a check. [/toggle] [toggle title=”Can I put the cost of materials on my credit card?” variation=”red”]Yes, I would call you from a big box stores pro-desk of your choice.  I would have assembled the necessary items and you would pay for them over the phone.[/toggle]
