WHY choose The Project Guy?

There are more than enough guys around with a toolbox and some know-how. Why pick me? Here are just a few reasons:

1. I work alone   Most of the time for the scale of projects I specialize in, it’s a big advantage to have just one guy, working full bore – without extras standing around waiting to run out to the truck for a tool or a part. For jobs that are beyond that,  I know how and when to say “No”. More often, I’ll surprise you with the four-handed things I’ve learned to do myself! Sometimes I’ll use an available helper to assist with the heavy lifting. Which leads to Reason #2 …

2. You’re welcome to help or watch I’m probably the only guy in five counties who’s always glad to work alongside you, the customer – to save time and money, and simply to make certain jobs do-able. Crown moulding is a good example of something that’s a whole lot easier with another human on the end of 12′ trim, especially with 10′ ceilings! Many customers call me when they realize they’re in over their head – just for moral support, expertise or for my arsenal of tools needed for a job. So I’m glad to have you help, watch or just turn me loose.

3. Children and pets never bother me!  People often apologize for the children or dogs/cats being in the way. It’s hardly ever the case – I always enjoy both (check out my own repertoire of grandchildren here!) If they’re inquisitive and willing to learn, I welcome their questions and may put them to work!

4. Multiple skillsets with one call From this website, I receive lots of “Honey-do” lists. Lists may include a mixed bag like “Replace bathroom faucet”, “add dimmer switch”, “deadbolt at garage” and “flood bulbs on backyard security lights”. How many calls could that involve? And what’s the hourly rate of each of those specialists? That’s why I’ve had an A+ Super Service rating with Angie’s List since 2006.

5.  Explanations in layman’s English Whether it’s an auto mechanic or the Geeks-2-You computer guy, I hate to be swamped by lingo, trying to understand what’s wrong with my car or computer. You’re probably the same with things around your home. I always try to give clear explanations and options as needed. Somewhere between tuxedo quality and t-shirt economy is the choice you’ll pick so your home project is done in the way that suits you. My job is to make all your choices clear so you’re 100% satisfied when I’m done.

Brian on phone 46. Quick response to your call, emails – even texts!  Many customers comment how surprising it is to actually hear back promptly from a voice message or an email! (Or to have a human – me – answer the phone!) It’s part of my personal touch philosophy – the way I think good business should be. My goal is 4 hours max, or the next morning if you call or email at the end of the day. So it’s a good idea to wait for my reply before you contact anybody else 🙂 My smartphone is on me if I’m awake, but you’ll get to leave a message if I’m on the job – you’ll usually get a reply as soon as I’m done. (You can even text me simple questions,  but please identify yourself and stay with email for details or schedule matters. )

7. Dozens of happy customers  After twelve years and lots of miles, I’m still surprised at the wonderful comments folks write. I hope you’ll find all those things true when it’s your turn, and I hope that will be soon!
