Timing and we've had you on this show a number of times we've talked about a your background and in how. Which story no renovations it it's a great story if he really is that you guys have have built there's some wonderful company from from. Doing some stuff fun aside from your real jobs are and decided hey look this and this might be time for us to two to give this a shot. Object did you know when you guys started this first five got a lot of respect for guys in on their own companies I never had that in me. Com lot of respect for guys that don't mind those sleepless nights no and that he we we need to you don't get a number of miles to feed with this company you've got to get this thing going. If you can't go back to when you guys had that conversation when you started thinking about starting this company. It's something that that you Walsh wanted to do is through to work for yourself the hours and the it's to work myself and let me say that. I I see very well know in the times of where. If you don't like that's great. There's there's charities she comes in look him bad and I know you resign it's probably my fault you know or and this year I'll tell you if you have you had a chance to listen. To him. On this show is he talks about the history story you know renovations and how you guys got going. He's got a ton of respect for you in what is now the job that day you do obviously. When you guys started this company did you realize. To what extent the U may be able to get a 21 day. Well we always had a vision I mean I was always you know only to get better every year. Arm but really it's there was customer services garden to the you know our clients a best possible. On experience and get them engaged and have fun with the process and you don't mean he. Deal with theirs you know stereotypes it's on the contractors have. Armed and at the end just leave them with the with a great remodel and X. And that's kind of been your mission statement. Timed it kind of similar to when when I ask you about you know when this started in end. You know when you talk it it it seems like within the first couple words anytime we talk but story you know renovations. You talk about customer and you talk about service. You don't talk about wall you don't hear the guys at doing that work for sort here's what our plans are for 2017. You say look it's all about customers it's all but serviced it solid while making sure that they get and they're happy with what they get. Add silly you know and when we first started this how it's you know we were doing. You know we're doing some house slipping and things on the side where. You know we didn't have the full knowledge yet so to me and suits you we were the customer with a lot of these trade gags and and people that we will bring in to help us finish well that's a good point so you know when you're on the other side of the coin. You kind of get to seize the rights and wrongs and boy you know. If I started my own company I'm not doing man's you know I'm call on this guy back radio and I gonna chase this guy around and in. You know in turn I think that's help us build our business and to know we want and to know you know what the customers feel and because. You know when they're when the they're not buying a product from martz the finest service. And were trying to provide the best possible service when they come to us for Kitchener of asked model. Charted jet Jack who collect key and a Tom made ghost story no renovations. Jack Quinn when you know that makes a tennis has three that you guys in the beginning we're still learning news wall. I think he and at least play it for me personally I've been doing what I do now for one time but I learn something literally every deck I mean. Yeah maybe it's because I'm not roasts are hurts because I need to alert step for every take budget. The same thing over a good hey that's why we get along so well. But I would think in your business you know you have to keep learning his if you don't you'll fall back. You do you any honest in growth mindset where. On you do learn something every day and I tell the guys in on the field if we make a mistake you know just learn from an arm and if you're not learning every day yeah. Your probably not listening or pain much attention. On but that's that's that's absolutely true you can learn something every day how does 2070. And look how does it does houses set up for you guys. Who were you when you look and obviously were. Or now in the point I think in everybody's business that you're now starting to look at 2017. If you haven't then your behind the the eight ball. Aram and and trying to figure out you know where are we concurred 2016. To 2015. At this point. Hide things glum look for you guys for 2017. I'm excited for 2017.

By him common and become office and right in on the on the dry or raise or Mac you know I yeah I think you get okay here at all at sacked and I could. Citing a really good job of of selling that and then you some real communal. Hey he's showed it let's let's define in the last Coleman's who this this first segment let's define your roles.

Object your your role Ed story you know renovations you guys are partners in this company cracked cracked yeah inject your role was in the on the cell side yes that's true. And I do a lot of them are sales and extra time upright more help on a little bit. Arms we've been given a fair amount of calls it gets a little bit slower between the holidays. But I think once people you know declared out of the holidays and it and that new year you know those and those who projects of start and up again. Right and then I tell you more the project manager correct yeah I'm I'm more of the data to see among once we start the project so while you know get and did the trade partners scheduled to get our guys scheduled. You know on the discount at. Rotate between you know fortified jobs Wheatley is typically what we try to keep going all the time so. Did like Jackson this time of the year it gets kind of you know little little lighter just because people aren't wanting you to to starter project between the holidays like. But we idiots surprising position we've had a couple kitchens that. Have wanted to start one started last week in and once gonna start next week rather like may. Where were fine in our I have enough nowadays here perfect selling out so it's repel off it Jack. We know we like for you guys to come out. Are you the got it goes to see them.

Just to have new color touts his or aren't that hard cops are. Are busted up. Yeah no I think well in all through the recession people you had to do what you had to do your budget was where was adamant and everything was a lot tighter than it is now. Obviously so he did see a lot more that people just two and repairs and and more maintenance and that's really kind of what kept our business. Arm throwing through the recession.

Well in the Myers the plant actor and be there LeRoy Butler you know the usual face sure be there will also have a calm. Cole are traveling show room truck will be there which is something new this year. And then they're also gonna have an area where there's tool demonstration Rizzo and I believe I'm match sure yet who's going to be there but. They'll be a an area dedicated to things of new products within the industry that consumers can actually touch try etc. You know the two that the two shows are art art. Sold different. You know they're so different and and for different I like both of them for for different reasons the the one that you do in the fall is a little smaller. And and it's not as crowded in if you'd Theres a couple contractors that you wanna spend fifteen minutes with. He man you can do that. This spring show bigger. A little bit you know people are looking for a reason get other house and they're looking for things are gonna do in spring and summer to their home and they're going there for ideas. And again it's the need to the want you know I need desperate when they walk out of there they're like I've got a list of wants. You know things I want a pays Juan and I really liked both shows for two different reasons and jackets interest and he's what we want to talk about. Com hot when you when you're gonna hire contractors some tips stood to hire a good contractor. And I would think one of the tips is to go to that Shell. Oh absolutely there's there's a better place to find. You know reputable contractor's is actual and eyes of people on the you know. Think maybe three guys you want to talk to. On another great resource arm that could lead you into that shows is scenario provide you with the resource guide them all and hearing remembers in there. On I would start there and and Angola show and honest to spend as much time as you can with. The people that you wanna. On the interview or people you you have an interest in to a one. And that's a word there the word interview you know I think you're right there are times and depending on the scope your project. That that you you're in every somebody to come in your home for four to six to eight weeks immunity and maybe you wander to pending and the scope but. You are truly interviewing. You know different contractors to say look in my comfortable with the sky and what's the process and what's the mission statement. Are and are there when you're at though shows do people actually ask you questions like that lake what is the mission statement or. Or it maybe not in those terms but they're asking what your beliefs terroristic. Open arms sometimes I think it's just -- gives though homeowner and opportunity actually meet the person. Arm Lotta times it's a business owner who's out there. I'm Tom obviously and a lot of time at that show. Armon February but they had to really gives you arm. Up close and personal look at the companies and people warm work in the Booth there are typically people you're gonna spend a lot of time with. If you haven't an extensive project so it's a replacing kinda get to know the contractor. Learn a little bit about you know what their. On wheel house so to speak is in terms of projects. On the get a feel for the company. You know its interest in knowing that and we're gonna talk about that on this. I do some research and the number one point. From. Wonder that the west says that I won on talented to kind of figure we're we're gonna go with the showed it and and if you work. Get a hire a contractor. They have eleven teams to get the most out your contractor and and hire the right one thing and you were so on the button their number one is connected to contract term we're read this. Really quick Kerr graft the right person for the job will be easy to talk to make sure you see I did I buy Harry contrary to that understand your colds. Has experience and type of job we're looking fort. Communication is key in all projects. So insist on a regular contact. On the buy Yunel for a text message. Allow the work crew to manage their dated they work but set up a weekly face to face update with the Foreman or project manager. And I think that's really important. That it's not once I signed the contract with you Jack I've already met Tom now I'm not gonna see or hear from either one of more than the rest of the amount. Nor. That I mean that's a key set it in communication and being able to. Don't holier contractor and moments of all is so we and Tom does a weekly. On meeting with the customer I'm always available. We try to be sometimes we've been told was over communicate on which I think is a good thing. I do two guys you know it and and I think you hit it on the head to with a face to face it is nice when you can see that customer wants week you know I had to crash tests they were I was just able walk through the hallmark. You can never really towel. The we're taxed I mean AA it's a good way to communicate and obviously that's the world we live in now rights but to get that face to face on a weekly basis. It is seated at. Helps tremendously Y two K we had a problem with. With her bathtub. Two weeks ago like there's no problems or challenges no this was a problem but at this what we had to we had. Not from the company bath fitter but we had a bath fitter over the top and I was. I felt like oh stepping on in here. In other of the of the latter sometimes Foreman and wanna assert that between those two right I don't know walk is that would turn the water on Choi would hear this squish I didn't know. So we had a near catcher could come out and when I step through stub and it went squish we both will teach it like you gotta be kidding. Well we had this project done. I'm happy to see a no longer have to shower at the whack and ethnic. You know 45 really old naked ten guys handiwork NASCAR really couldn't hurt so happy about that but I sent them.

And it sets it is a girl named after me yes is that just another you know I wish I lived in our neighborhood and know that I have Asia and so every you know we just couldn't do in our kids might my daughter and grand kids and some all of across street. So Terry could just kind of walk across street she works out of her home.

He's also was story he'll renovations. 4148411694. Or story no renovations dot com for more of Michigan degree website highly recommend you you taken a look at that. He Jack we we just kept sedated to one part of of hired the right contractor and that's connect to answer contractor make sure the communication. Arm is strong give us a couple of things that people. When they're when they're looking to hire a contractor. You know I always tell people when I going you don't take a look at three good guys irreparable. Contractors. Firmly nary near you guys obviously. Tom. But hours home to kind of go what they're got a little bit and and do your research asked for referrals in off I can tell you how many times I've been out to a a person's home and you know they've they've had a negative experience now mostly of you know find out why won't know what was the trigger for that like while. You know we had my Brothers uncles sisters mailman neighbor formal you know I'm in and record. You know you gotta do little Morey research than that and I always tell people in all your. Do a little research and the contractors past behavior disease way to predict their future behavior. If they've got to draw up a long standing history of success they do nice work. On their war when he and service and design on you know that's a good place to start. You know the other one and and that and they research I did understand their price for Frye who reflects equality. And we had tar too but that Tom and on a preview show that. If if somebody comes in as says look I can remodel your entire kitchen for 6000 dollars. And you know it's going to be top notched eight. It somethings are too good to be true and I think you have to understand that. You know it can't be done you know we we I had you guys c'mon or do you turn to c'mon look at we're gonna just free do a few things in our kitchen. And it. Eat it if if we were going to go is big and beautiful as as you and I talked about men he it was perfect. My eyes. And my heart. Remove a bigger than our pocket of course at that point because my wife Serb Walton holed out a second. You would do that and that's not to the touch my hall here you know work we're just trying to have an upgrade is living space in our kitchen. And were we live. You know what we pay for the house. But were happy with the small upgrades we did. I I will never try to pick out hard were again as long outlived Jack and I love hardware. It was the worst periods. I thought I'd Joaquin in their B six choices and off fight on and on down there was rows after rows up every little I just I I can never do that again. We tried and we need people come from and our office Picard we have one tower. And it has. More than enough choices sometimes it can be overwhelming but now I'm a hurry I love you love SNL he asked them. Are meant you know the other part that I think is important. Is to get get the contract in writing get everything down in writing. I you know don't take somebody's word for correct. Oh absolutely we haven't and we had time and I have these these conversations office get as much of the our communication and everything in writing on. Dollars down every last you tell us when we try to do as his right as detailed contract as we possibly can you well communicated. Not only from from the first. On meeting or the first phone call but always through the project of the better you are communique the more things you have. Called out in your contract leaves out gray areas and and then lesser fields perhaps how. Orton who is it that you guys have really strong communication between two view on its news it's it's. It it sued so it. If on the tighter my contract is. The easier it is for them and then we don't have to talk to each. Then Bernie's days ahead power I doubt I would just Essen in the office and out there concerning your neighbor yet at the energy of the credential giving here kind of if it's you know I think that consumers. You have to understand too that that they have to be prepared. For a home renovation. You know I I think that that's important from from the consumer and because there there are ways to win the down most starts may hand the curse of stuff going nine. In house and I don't know if this happens in every job. But I think and a lot of job somewhere within that that job. The home water goes man is as ever gonna and or are we doing the right thing they're second guessing themselves. Well I think I think it's it's it's up to the good contractor to create the expectation you know a year not gonna have that you know that it is it there's dumb all there's dust. You know we try to do do our best amended you don't to minimize so that issue you don't use a build cleaned machine system. That actually filters the air without the filter throughout the demo process and I and the rough framing process so. Everything that we can do but at the same time you know it's up to us to kind of set the expectation before the Haynes you know these things will occur. We know that you know there's going to be parts of the project that pitcher not gonna alike and we will do our best to try to hadn't you know minimize. They interruptions in her life. He check in on the sales side of it. How how difficult is it when when you have a potential client that does not have. Yeah AJ is thinking that they can do some things they might now appeal do in the space that they happen like when you have disabled. That's really not realistic then I get there. Every once while we do for model work on older homes. And you'll get their client every once while Johnson to a double of the and they wanted to do a huge island and I mean you live in a more hockey bungalow or two of them on -- while Tulsa. On this is a space here's what we can do for you you know I mean I didn't try not to. You don't. Be negative with with what they wanna do but is cut and be mindful of this season and and the design Hewitt times have to walk away from and say you know what maybe this isn't frost so sometimes I mean NASCAR is now it is it is difficult you know like you know we mentioned earlier we got to people working forests right and miles a feed in you know you never want to walk way from project but a lot of times even on our side we get a gut feeling what's good for. What's good scenario or a point now so you know it it'll it kinda goes both ways. When when were interviewing. Or when they're driven analysis Lotta times in a good contractors should kind of be interviewing their client to make sure it's good fit for them little easier now to walk away if you have to that it was well firstar ensure absolutely there are many projects we would want win and we where we start company.
