Expenses & deposits
I do not stock, sell or officially endorse or represent any commercial home improvement product or supplier.
When and where possible, contractor or military discounts will be applied to material purchases.
I do not 'mark up' any project-related purchase or expense.
No form of advance deposit is requested or required.
'Time and materials'
For projects in which I'm not willing or able to provide an upfront price or 'bid,' I establish with the customer a liberal timeframe for project completion and a fixed minimum daily rate for labor.
Unless stated otherwise, no service will be scheduled or rendered until the customer pre-approves or signs a legally binding contract.
Exceptions: Small junk, yard waste or tree removal projects.
For both legal and business reasons, I must limit my services and initial dealings to the current legal owner of the subject property, who must have a current physical home address in Fayette County or adjacent county.
For standard business reasons, I generally limit my services to Fayette County and immediate vicinity.
I service rental properties when vacant of tenants.
I consider requests to service commercial properties on a case-by-case basis.
I do not work directly with insurance companies, provide 'insurance estimates', or modify my fees or services to accommodate the deductible or coverage limits on an insurance policy.
Bids & estimates
Generally, only a 'full-service' contractor can accurately predict or 'estimate' the cost and quantity of necessary labor and materials.
Still, I occasionally complete projects for an upfront price which includes both labor and materials.
Primary examples include:
Small- or medium-sized tree removal
Junk or yard waste removal
Messes will be cleaned, materials spared, and honest communication will remain open.
Assistance with disposing of leftover/unwanted project supplies or belongings.
