one days work for 2 people-even with over head and supplies
3800 less tax 3362 less supplies $500 is 3300 less 40% ovrhead is 1717 with 2 guys at 8 hours is at least $110 per hour per employee-that a lot of money to seal a house and put in 2 one way doors-not saying it is a deal to pay for mouse traps for 3 months without a final solution-this is definitely a better long term solution and this whole thing about being in construction industry was not helpful as no offer even at a fee to help fix large holes in garage drywall treated with masking tape by previous owners and the holes were letting mice in-sent them pictures of holes after damaged half rotten dry wall was removed two weeks before their work with no reply-nto a single word -thank goodness i had a good handy man to fix it first-no offer to help deal with it or inquirey into whether i need help with fixing it-given my current disability a reply about the pictures or offer of assistance at a fee would have been appreciated and there were mouse droppings behind the damaged dry wall when it was removed -so the area did need attention or the mice would have continued to enter regardless of caulking/sealant and one way mouse doors-so i suggest you negotiate the price based on how long the job will take-if quote is higher than would be reasonable then make sure you work this out beforesigning a contract-make provisions for ength and final cost of job-a quote is jusy a quote and not necessarily what is reasonable after you see the time spent on it-it is not rocket science and does not require expensive and prolonged education-in fact they hir epeople with no experience and train them-which is fine but does not justify over $100 per hour per employee-YOU CAN BET IF THERE IS MORE WORK THAN ESTIMATED THAT GETS DISCUSSED WITH HOME OWNER AND THEN THEY HAVE THE OPTION TO PAY MORE OR SETTLE FOR WHAT THE ESTIMATE WILL COVER FINANCIALLY-I am sure he will have a smart reply-he always does-so do not expect this revew to not be responded to in a semi-hostile way-it may be masked but the hostility is there and the blame is always on the client-but a quote is just a quote-and enforced when it suits them and the price goes up when there is more work than the quote covers-it never goes down if it is less
- Company Response
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. Sorry we couldn't meet your expectations and you were underwhelmed by our service.
Our pricing is extremely straightforward, we have a checklist of features that are on a home and each feature has its own set price. It is unfortunate that your home has a lot of features and needed more work then the average home.
When our customers are booking a job they are told what days we will be on site and how many technicians.
Again we are sorry we couldn't meet your expectations.
