What are the cost for your services?
My labor rate is $120 per hour with a 2-hour minimum, plus sales tax and materials.
Any additional work not included in the estimate will be billed at a rate of $120 per hour plus sales tax and the cost of materials.
Is there a materials markup?
Materials are marked up by 20%. The materials mark-up is to cover purchasing the materials and drive time. You may provide your own materials, but please be advised if you purchase the wrong materials and I am on-site, the hourly rate still applies while the correct materials are purchased. My customers find it best that I purchase the required materials for the project to provide a stress-free experience and avoid the hassle of returning the wrong materials purchased.
Is there a deposit required for the project?
If the total cost of your project is more than $800 (labor, materials, & tax), a 50% deposit is required after the estimate is approved. The deposit is fully refundable and paid online using a credit card. The remainder is due upon completion of the project.

Street/Lot Parking Fees will be applied to the final invoice.
