A: Payments are due at the completion of work except in the case of extended projects where current amounts due for material and labor are presented weekly and collected by our technicians.
Q: Do we need to be home?
A: No, not while the work is being performed. However, you do need to meet our technician at the project start to review the scope of work and sign a work authorization before the work begins.
If you are absent during the progress of the job, you must be accessible by phone or e-mail to discuss changes to scope which may be dictated by conditions discovered after the work begins.
At the end of the day, you must approve the completed work and make payment directly to the technician, or make arrangements for someone else to do so.
Q: Can you do electrical and plumbing work?
A: Yes. However, if a licensed electrician or plumber is required we will quote their hourly rate separately.
