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.
