Who would be doing the actual work in my House?
do not Sub-Contract or piece-mill our jobs out.
We have qualified and competent hourly employees who will be there
from start to finish. Our company carries General Liability Insurance
and also, Workman's Compensation Insurance on all of our employees.
First, the Owner/Estimator will oversee each job and will make
sure that everything that has been agreed upon, will be accomplished.
Secondly, we will place a reliable job foremen in your home that
has been proven to be dependable and trustworthy. Third, the job
foremen will have other competent workers placed with him so there
is always a chain of command and accountability. Beware of contractors
who use sub-contractors or piece-mill workers. Their only incentive,
might be to get the job done as fast as possible, because the
faster they get it done, the more money they make.
How will my job be scheduled?
have a computer generated job scheduling system. All jobs go on
the schedule according to the date we receive the signed copy
of the job proposal. We do not play favorites because it would
not be fair to all of our customers.
Do we have to move our own Furniture?
will be happy to figure moving all of the furniture necessary
to perform the work contracted in specific rooms or areas. However,
we normally have the owners or customer remove their own curtains,
pictures, wall hangings, knickknacks, small furniture and furnishings.
Our company typically will figure to move all of the larger pieces
of furniture or furnishings as needed.
Do we furnish the materials for our job?
prefer to use the products and the manufacturers that we have
tested, tried and proven to be reliable. We buy our products in
quantities to ensure the lowest prices. Even with our normal mark
up, we can typically provide materials for much less then the
average home owner, however; if you would like to purchase your
own products, we will be happy to figure our estimate accordingly.
What Products do you use?
Paint & Paper is not married to any one paint manufacturer
or vendor. We use products that we have personally proven, over
a period of time to be environmentally friendly, VOC compliant,
reliable and durable. However, if a homeowner or customer would
like for us to use a specific product, we would be glad to bid
the project accordingly.
Is your work warranted?
And, we will put that in writing. We will issue a certificate
of warranty with each job, however; your best warranty of all,
is to hire a reputable and professional contractor that has a
proven track record and references to back it up. A list of references
and certificates of insurance will be provided upon your request.
Should I be concerned with toxic odors?
most toxic odors come from solvent based type products. Most latex
products are typically low odor. We try to use the best products
for each application, choosing the least toxic type products first.
Some specific applications may require, for best results, the
use of solvent-based materials. If you are sensitive to odors
or concerned with the toxcity levels of certain products, we can
well relate. Our company owns two air purifiers that remove airborne
organic vapors(toxic odors) through a charcoal based filtration
system and we are more than happy to use them when needed. We
are concerned with our employees well being as well as our customers.
Will I have to be home when the work is being
if you would like to be, but it is not necessary. We have completed
many jobs while the customers or homeowners were out of town or
on vacation during the whole process. Again, we would be happy
to supply a list of these references. With the chain of command
or accountability as mentioned above, along with competent and
trustworthy hourly employees doing the work, a proven track record
or reputation preceding us and at last but not least full coverage
insurance(certificates available upon request), we hope you might
rest more assured. This one thing is for sure, we will not take
any confidence that you might place in us for granted.
