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
'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.
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.
Full payment is due upon completion of service.
Labor and expenses are recorded with a timesheet.
After my last day of work, I will email you an invoice with instructions for when and how to make your payment.
Accepted forms of payment:
Cash (small projects only)
Messes will be cleaned, materials spared, and honest communication will remain open.
Assistance with disposing of leftover/unwanted project supplies or belongings.
