What is your availability to start my job?
It depends on a few things, our volume of work at the time of your request, your location, what type of work you need done and if that work is dependent on good weather in the event of it being exterior work. Because we do a lot of Retail & Commercial work, we can sometimes respond immediately if we are in your area, otherwise we would discuss a day and time that works best for both parties.

Do you guarantee your work?
Yes, we guarantee our work. If we do a job and anything goes wrong based on our doing, we will come back and fix it ASAP and free of charge.

Certain terms do apply should a client give us specific and strict instruction on how to do our job, what we should and shouldn't do, in which case any guarantee is then void.
When you mount something, is it secured?
Absolutely, yes we do and in some cases we even go above and beyond to maximize the stability, security and safety of what it is we are working on.

Examples Below:

An example of maximizing the mounting security would be for mounting a 50 - 100 pound mirror on a wall. Typically, the included hanging hardware may have a weight limit range in between 50 - 100 pounds. Usually included hardware will cut very close to the actual weight of the item being hung. We would maximize the hanging hardware to a 200 pound limit and is usually doubled up to occupy the secured mounting hooks that are typically built into the frame of the mirror.

Another quick example is mounting heavy fixtures into drywall. In some cases, hardware may have pre-drilled holes that will never align with the studs, simply put, securing into a stud may not be an option. In some cases, pre-packaged mounting hardware may include poor quality drywall plugs, in which case we would maximize the mounting security by switching out the drywall plugs with heavier duty Toggle Bolts which are about the most secure method of mounting heavy items into drywall when securing into studs is not an option.
