SMALL RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL JOBS ARE OUR SPECIALTY

 

ESTIMATES & THE JOB PROCESS

Once you have contacted my company either by telephone or EMAIL, I will schedule an estimate within a day or two. A lot of small jobs don't require you to be at the location when I come out to look at your particular job. I will be able to EMAIL you a quote at the end of that day. If you don't use EMAIL I will send you a copy through the mail in a couple of days. For more complex jobs I will meet with you to discuss the options you have before submitting a quote.

ALL OF MY EMAIL QUOTES ARE SENT IN PDF FILE FORMAT WITH PICTURES ATTACHED. ESTIMATES WILL BE DETAILED AND INCLUDE ALL COSTS EXCEPT BUILDING PERMIT FEES. OCCASIONALLY THERE WILL BE UN FORESEEN HIDDEN PROBLEMS THAT AREN'T UNCOVERED UNTIL THE JOB HAS STARTED. THE MOST COMMON OF THESE SITUATIONS ARE FOUNDATIONS THAT DON'T GO DEEP ENOUGH AND ROTTED WOOD THAT HAS TO BE REPLACED BEHIND THE MASONRY. YOU WILL ALWAYS BE MADE AWARE OF ANY ADDITIONAL COSTS BEFORE ANY WORK CONTINUES. THESE SITUATIONS ARE RARE BUT DO COME UP FROM TIME TO TIME.  PERMIT FEES ARE DETERMINED BY EACH MUNICIPALITY WHEN BUILDING PERMIT APPLICATION IS SUBMITTED. FEES FOR DRAWINGS IF REQUIRED ARE ADDITIONAL AND YOU WILL BE QUOTED THIS FEE BEFORE ANY CONTRACTS ARE SIGNED. SMALL REPAIR JOBS DON'T USUALLY REQUIRE A BUILDING PERMIT. PERMIT FEES ADD ADDITIONAL COST TO THE JOB BUT ARE THERE FOR YOUR PROTECTION TO INSURE THAT ALL CURRENT BUILDING CODES ARE FOLLOWED. I AM ABLE TO PULL BUILDING PERMITS IN ALL OF THE LOCAL MUNICIPALITIES. IN ORDER TO PULL BUILDING PERMITS A COMPANY MUST BE LICENSED BY THE STATE OF MICHIGAN AND CARRY THE APPROPRIATE INSURANCE. SOME JOBS WILL REQUIRE MY COMPANY TO POST A BOND WHICH THE CITY WILL HOLD UNTIL A FINAL INSPECTION IS DONE.

ONCE YOU SIGN A CONTRACT, IT WILL TAKE ME APPROXIMATELY 6 TO 8 WEEKS TO WORK MY WAY TO YOUR JOB. ONCE I START YOUR JOB, I WILL REMAIN ON IT UNTIL IT IS COMPLETED. WEATHER AND WAITING FOR A BUILDING INSPECTION ARE THE ONLY DELAYS THAT REQUIRE ME TO NOT BE AT YOUR JOB EVERYDAY. THIS IS USUALLY A DAY OR TWO AT THE MOST.EMERGENCY SITUATIONS WILL BE DEALT WITH ACCORDING TO THE IMPORTANCE OF THE JOB. IT IS IMPORTANT TO CALL EARLY SO THAT YOUR JOB CAN BE COMPLETED FOR YOU TO ENJOY.  

PAYMENT AND TERMS

JOBS THAT ARE COMPLETED IN A DAY OR TWO WILL NOT REQUIRE ANY DEPOSIT UNLESS THERE IS A BUILDING PERMIT REQUIRED. THESE FEES WILL BE DUE WHEN THE PERMIT IS ISSUED. IF I HAVE TO SPECIAL ORDER BRICK, STONE OR OTHER MATERIAL ONE THIRD WILL BE REQUIRED WHEN MATERIAL IS REQUIRED. ALL OTHER PROJECTS WILL REQUIRE ONE THIRD DOWN WHEN PROJECT IS STARTED. PAYMENT IS DUE IN FULL WHEN THE JOB IS COMPLETED.

MY COMPANY ACCEPTS ALL KINDS OF CHECKS, CASH AND PAYMENT ON LINE THROUGH PAY PAL.   PICTURES OF YOUR JOB WILL BE TAKEN DURING THE PROCESS OF YOUR JOB AND UPLOADED DAILY TO MY JOBS IN PROGRESS GALLERY. THIS LETS YOU SEE THE PROGRESS OF YOUR JOB IF YOU ARE AT WORK OR OUT OF TOWN.
