My motto is: “committed to service.” I guarantee my work, and will do everything I can to ensure your satisfaction.
For small jobs, I will provide a rough estimate based on photos of the problem. Larger jobs for new customers who are comparing prices are charged my minimum 1 hour ($60) to come out to see the problem and provide a written estimate. If you decide to hire me for the work, the $60 is deducted from your final invoice. There is no charge for estimates for established customers.
I estimate each job for time and materials, but I don’t provide quotes (that is, a set fee for a project). In the handyman business, unforeseeable things often occur. For example, removing flooring to discover the subflooring has rotted and needs replacement, or finding mold inside a wall that needs mitigation. I will estimate your job based on what I can see at the time of the estimate, and discuss any additional costs as unforeseen issues arise.
I charge for time and materials on a sliding scale from $60 to $50 an hour as detailed below. Jobs requiring more hours are charged at the lower end of the scale. Costs of projects vary depending on the complexity, the distance I need to travel (for example, there is usually a surcharge for travel up the canyon), and the materials required.
- 1 – 8 hours . . . . . . . . . . . $60.00 per hr.
- 9 – 24 hours. . . . . . . . . . . .$55.00 per hr.
- 25 hours or more . . . . . . . .$50.00 per hr.
On jobs with high material cost estimates, I ask for one-half the total estimate up front. I always provide an estimate for jobs that require a substantial amount of materials.
I make every effort to schedule jobs appropriately, but again, many unexpected things occur in handyman work. I appreciate customers who can be flexible, and I try to be flexible as well. For example, if you have an emergency situation that needs immediate attention, I will try to reschedule other customers to meet your need.
