Allcity Carpentry is run by myself, Kerry and my wife Margaret. I look after the outside work while Margaret handles the office including setting up the jobs and arranging for quotes. We are a small company, not a franchise and we do not subcontract to other contractors. When you hire us to do your job you are dealing directly with us and we promise the job will be done right. We’re good at what we do and most of our work is repeat business or referrals from existing clients.
All our workmanship is guaranteed for one year and we will gladly return to fix any problems that may arise.You will NEVER be left waiting for us to arrive. Once an appointment has been booked we will be there at that time or you will be notified well in advance.
For the larger jobs we will provide you with a firm price quote, but for smaller handyman type projects our hourly rate is $45.00 per hour with a two hour minimum. Many jobs can be estimated without coming to your home. If you are able to supply pictures and a good description of your project via email then we will send a quote to you at the email address provided.
For smaller hourly jobs just give us a call or email and we can arrange a time to come out to do the work. We have a two hour minimum. After the minimum charge the billing will be in 15 minute increments. I do not ask for payment up front.
15% will be added to any material that I supply for your project.
You are more than welcome to supply your own material and I will install it for you.
Firm Price Quote
Once you have decided on a project and you have an idea of what you want to do, give us a call or email us. We will then set up an appointment for Kerry to come to your home to look over your job and discuss any ideas you have for the remodel.
Once we have an understanding of the job, we will supply you with a firm price quote listing the scope of the job and what we will supply as well as what you will supply. We usually send this as a PDF file by email, but can send it by mail or hand deliver it if need be.
If you decide that you want us to proceed with the work, you will then send us a signed copy of the quote. At that point we can give you a start date for your project. Most start dates will be from four to six weeks from the time we receive the signed quote.
Some of our clients have us supply everything to complete the job, but the majority of people will supply all their fixtures and tile and have us supply all the labour and hidden materials necessary to complete the project. If you want to supply your own material but do not have a truck, we can arrange to pick it up for you.
Once the project is started, Kerry will be on site every working day until it is completed.
For smaller Handyman type jobs we ask for payment when the work is completed.
For the larger quoted projects we ask for a 25% deposit on the starting day with the balance on completion of the project.
