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.
