2017 is here!

I just finished the year-end paperwork for 2016, and it absolutely amazes me when I look back at how many jobs I do for people throughout the year. There have been some pretty fun ones. Hot ones. And hard ones. But I’m so glad to have the opportunity to do each one, no matter how small it is. 2016 came and went so fast, and now I can’t believe it’s nearing the end of February of 2017 already! There are many jobs in store for the next few months that I’m looking forward to doing. Which makes me glad I don’t have any advertising other than the Better Business Bureau, because I would have to turn work away! It makes me happy to know my customers think so highly of my work and reasonable prices that they tell other people about me time and time again. So my thanks to all of you for helping my business succeed each year.

The one thing changing this year is the trip charge. It’s been the same for the last three years, but I am at a point that I need to raise it to keep up with ever increasing costs on my end to do business. Starting April 1, 2017, the new trip charge will be $12. It’s only a one time charge per service call (as in if I’m at your house 3 days in a row, there’s only one trip charge, not a per-day charge). The one thing that won’t change is quality. That will always stay the same.

Let me know how we can help you change or maintain your home. Estimates and advice are free! Call or email to schedule a visit to your home. Have a great 2017!

As always, we are Reasonable. Responsible. Reliable.

New Fee starting April 1

Unfortunately, thanks to the rapidly rising costs of gas, business liability insurance & pulling the tool trailer to every job, my usually low rates have to change. I’ve decided not to raise the hourly rate, but beginning April 1st, 2014, there will be a $8 fee added to a service call bill to help offset the costs.  If I will be working multiple days at your home, this price will be adjusted and included in the bid.  And of course coming to your house to bid your job will still be free.  Any questions about this I’ll be glad to speak with you. Just call.

Evergrain Deck Installation

The photos display the finished installation of a top of the line Evergrain composite deck and pathway/step lights installed over the winter of 2009. We had to rebuild most of the structure because of weather rot. But once we put the new joists on, we used a special coating on the joists to make them last LOTS longer. We also found even with 6 inches of snow on the deck, after a little shoveling and direct sunlight, that deck was dry in an hour!  Our clients were very happy!

We can install or resurface a deck at your home too. Please contact us for more information or call (316) 243-8288.
