This one kind of went to the
back burner for a while
because of other things that
came up! But, we're back on it
now,  and it has made great
progress in the past couple
weeks!

About Our
Restorations,
Pricing and
Quotes policy:
We keep our
price structure
simple, labor plus
parts & material.  
In most cases we
will not bid a job,
however, we will
offer the best
estimate we can
but it will only be
an estimate.

When you give a
firm bid for doing
any type of repair
or service on this
type of
equipment, you
must have a built
in cushion to
cover any
unexpected
problems that
might arise.  If no
problems arise,
the bidder comes
out ahead and
the customer
loses, however, if
major problems
arise the bidder
loses. Our policy
is made to be fair
for both parties
concerned.
After a project
has been started
and if any
unexpected major
problems should
arise, the
customer is
always notified
before work
continues. We do
our best to keep
our customers
informed.  When
we go to settle an
account, we do
not like
unexpected
surprises just as
much as the
customer.

We can/will stop
the restoration
process at any
time per the
customers
request. Should
unexpected
hardships occur,
you are not
locked in to finish
to completion any
project that is
underway. We
recognize that
daily life brings
unexpected
obstacles along
the way. We can
delay or stop our
services at your
request should
you find yourself
in a difficult spot.
