FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW IS SPINDRIFT CONTRACTING DIFFERENT FROM ITS COMPETITORS?

I'm an independent contractor.  What this means is that I work alone - I'm the sales guy, the office worker, and the ditch digger.  I understand every inch of what goes into making your dream a reality, and can talk to you honestly and accurately about each and every step.

HOW IS SPINDRIFT CONTRACTING PART OF THE LANDER COMMUNITY?

Giving back to the community is a critical part of what Spindrift Contracting is.  Because of this, 5% of my profit is donated monthly to the Lander Senior Center.  If there is a charity that you want your 5% to go to, I'm all ears - just tell me where you want it to go, and I'll make sure it does.

DO YOU PROVIDE EMERGENCY SERVICE?

Since I live in town, I can respond to most situations no matter the time of day.  But, let's be honest - it won't be cheap.  If I need to leave another job I'm working on, it will be a minimum of $100/hr.  If we're outside of normal business hours (between 6:00 PM and 7:00 AM), the cost will be a minimum of $150/hr.  But, rest assured that I'll be prompt, professional, and understanding.

WHAT DO YOU CHARGE?

This is always the question nobody wants to ask, and nobody ever seems to want to talk about.  Well, I try to make this part easy for people to understand - after all, they say if you have to ask, you can't afford it, and I don't ever want that confusion to stop us from working together.

 

I charge $50 an hour, plus materials for most construction projects. Consultations, or certain smaller jobs, may be charged at a higher rate, or charged a flat rate that we will discuss and agree upon.  Anything I have to buy for the project (excluding tools - those are always out of my pocket) will be charged what I pay.  No markup - my discounts are your discounts.  I invoice weekly, and in most cases payment is due upon receipt.  Cash or check is fine.

An exception to this rule is when I build decks and pergolas.  I have a solid foundation in the costs associated with these projects, and feel like I can offer a bid that is fair and accurate.
