Is drive time to the job site included?

Do you charge by the hour, lump sum, or time and materials?
– We prefer to quote the job as a whole. Within that quote we break down cost for labour and provide a rough idea on how many hours the given task will take. Certain jobs might be done at an hourly rate if needed.

When can you start?
– All depends on the time of year and the amount of work that is already on the go. But usually depending on the size of the job we like to start within a few weeks of making contact with our clients and what their needs are.
