What areas do you work in?
I work in Langley and surrounding areas.
Are the pictures on your website jobs that you have done?
All the pictures on my website are of work I have completed.
How much do you charge?
For small handyman type jobs I charge $50.00 per hour with a two hour minimum. After the two hour minimum, billing is in 15 minute increments. For larger jobs I will provide you with a firm price quote.
Do you guarantee your work?
All our workmanship is guaranteed for one year and I will gladly return to fix any problems that may arise. I do not guarantee materials, they are guaranteed by the manufacturers.
Will you come to my home and give me a free estimate?
I will come out to your home and give you a free estimate, but only for larger jobs. I will not come out to your home to give you a price on small jobs such as recaulking a bathtub or shower. Jobs like these are done on an hourly basis only. If you outline what you would like to have done in an email, I can give you an idea of how long it would take.
How does the payment process work?
For smaller handyman jobs, payment is due once the work has been completed. For larger jobs, I ask for 25% of the quoted price at the start of the job and the balance on completion. I accept cash and cheque on the job site. If you use online banking, you can send an Interac e-transfer by email.
Do you hire subcontractors to do parts of the work you quote?
I do not hire subcontractors. I am the only one that will work on the job and if I am not able to do the work, the job will not be quoted.
If you get hurt while working at my home, am I responsible?
No, I have Worksafe BC coverage so any injuries that happen at your home are not your responsibility. If you would like to check this out for yourself, you can obtain a clearance letter from Worksafe BC. I will supply you with our contractor number.
Can I supply my own material for a project?
Yes, I have no problem with you supplying your own material as long as it is available to use when the job starts.
I want to supply my own material but I don’t have a way to transport it, can you pick it up for me?
I can pick up material locally for you and deliver it to your home for a small charge, usually $50.00. We would just need a copy of the paid invoice to enable us to pick it up.
Can I help with a renovation?
There are certain things that you could do prior to my arrival, like demolition work and getting materials together, and if you let me know this when I come to your home I will allow for this in the quote. Once I start work on the job, It is important that I be allowed to work by myself. Helping at this point will normally just slow the job down.
We have started work ourselves and have realized we are in over our head, can you help?
Yes, I can certainly pick up where you left off. Email me to discuss your project.
I work during the day, can you come out at night or on the weekend?
No, I’m sorry I only work Monday to Friday 8:00 am to 5:00 pm
