Q:

Thank You for your reply. I do not see option for a twelve hour groupon. Only 10, 4 and 2 hours. I can buy 10 hour group on and a 4 hour grou on (as gift for my wife who lives at same address) and then you can use 2 hours toward materials pick up and 12 hours towards the work. Will that work? Plus i am assuming you will be willing to do the work in Orinda (94563). Let me know.

We will honer your Groupon Orinda for two ten hour vouchers. You must first purchase a Groupon voucher. How it works for the voucher is that when we come to your residence project. We redeem your voucher and start work. The voucher is good for consulting and looking and advice time as well. Basically once we show up we present you a work order. We collect the voucher, Sign you in time of job, go over scope of work. When we show up usually with 2 tradespeople. This means 2 man hours every hour we are there. We recommend that the materials are there when we arrive. Any work outside of the Groupon voucher can be negotiated and or estimated with total materials and labor. This is an important information for anyone interested to read. Basically the most efficient process is to know what you need done so we can go right to work and optimize your project goals for early completion. Some clients have larger projects they can be estimated as part of any project done after the Groupon voucher is honored. I hope this was helpful. Thanks JB!

Q:

will you honor the groupon in Orinda 94563

Anilsapru  asked on  Aug 19, 2012

A:

Yes we will honer your Groupon. It is not in our coverage area If you purchase 2 men x 10 hours we can make a day out of it. We cant guarantee the time man hours needed for your project. This is not a fixed bid. This is considered service work. Here is some information for you to gleen in preparation of work at your residence. You must first purchase a Groupon voucher.

Q:

i need a island hood installed in my kitchen. will have to make a frame in the wooden ceiling, bring in the electric wiring and make a hole in the roof to take out the vent. how much time would you estimate and will you do the work in Orinda?

Anilsapru  asked on  Aug 19, 2012

A:

Contractors normally bid this kind of work at around $600.00 for the install of the free standing hood. This does not include electrical make up framing and Sheetrock repair. If all the materials are present it is possible that this could be done in 12 man hours. It could easily go over that time due to many variables. These are total bid at around $1500 for the complete install. A 12 hour Groupon voucher would be your best deal. We have installed hundreds of these hoods in the past. It is not likely that all the materials would be present so we can pick up material outside of your Groupon voucher. Thanks JB!

Q:

Hi I too need some siding work, I actually just want 4x8 sheets of hardboard siding installed over my existing wood siding which is peeling and scraping it does not help the paint stick. Here is a picture http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v644/fwfinance/88E85417-DA7C-4D52-A897-791E1631BB1A-3707-0000069895649C09.jpg the area is about 12 foor by 25 foot - just the yellow rectangle area.. Not the white part or yellow part on top. So I need the hardboard siding panels installed and painted. House is in South San Francisco. Can you do this job for the 10 hour package ? I will pay for the cost of siding and paint but want to be sure there are no other costs.

george m.  asked on  Aug 19, 2012

A:

Unfortunately, because I am a licensed contractor I would not be able to do the scope of work as you describe it. Going over your existing dry rot siding with panel siding or any other type of siding is not the proper way to fix the problem. If you go over the siding that is already rotted then you will have a waterproofing problem still. Most likely there are framing members that are rotted as well as flashing and water proofing issues. Once you can encapsulate the old siding any moisture issues will get worse. The Groupon coupon that you purchase is considered service work meaning we show up at your residence and the materials are ready to go. As soon as we show up we collect your Groupon voucher and the clock starts. Due to the fact that we do not know everything that is wrong with your wall and siding we would have to open it up first. We have completed many jobs in your area please see our Facebook page that shows siding jobs in South San Francisco in the last month. Your project sounds like it is about 30-40 man hours to complete the proper way. If you have any further questions please feel free to respond back to me.

Hi Chris, thanks for answering my question about the siding. Can I set up an appointment for you to inspect it? Is there any charge for the estimate? What is the best number to call to set up the appointment? Thanks again, Nishat K.

Q:

I need 5 ceiling fans installed, the 2 downstairs just need to be installed, no electrical needed because it is done including fan box in ceiling. The three upstairs need the whole install with wiring, there is a switch on the wall going to an outlet that we want used to only go to the ceiling fans, but there is no ceiling lights or wiring. We also want light cans put over the 2 closet doors in the master bedroom and they would need a switch too. There is a small attic space with no flooring just rafters. Is that something you do and how long do you think it would take? And we need the gargage door fixed, prior owner took out all the door hardware because they walled it off to make a room, the wiring is there for an opener, but no springs or anything, we cannot even open the door, we did take the wall down. We have some smaller projects too that could fill time if needed. Any idea about how many hours each would take? We either have the supplies or could get them before you come. My husband could do the work, but too busy. Union City area.

mary t.  asked on  Aug 17, 2012

A:

So if you have fan boxes they still need to be wired to the fan motors even if the wires are ran in a make up fashion. Do you want the fans running? Without seeing your project in person there is no way to determine time or price. It sounds like to me it is 15 hours x2 so a total of 30 man hour minimum.

Q:

I need to replace exterior siding wood panels in the back of my single story home. About 8 panels (4' by 9'). Is that something that can be completed in 10 hours? Do they have their own necessary tools? Are they licensed? Thanks .

Nishat K.  asked on  Aug 16, 2012

A:

Siding repairs sometimes require more then just repairing siding. Usually there is a waterproofing issue as well. This job would be a minimum of the 10 hours. I cant tell till i inspect it onsite.
