wake forest handyman: Change Your House's Shoes. No, Really! - 02/17/11 03:50 PM
You may not realize it, but your house has shoes!  Ok, really they're boots, and maybe they're not for walking.  But your house has one, or two, or three, or more!
You say you don't know what a roof boot is?  What?  How'd you get on my jobsite?  Did I hire you?  You're got to maintain roof boots, especially roof boots here in the Raleigh & Wake Forest area with all our hot summers.  Roof boots wear out and can cause leaks and ugly brown stains. Or worse!  That stain inside on the ceiling isn't so bad, but left unattended it … (9 comments)

wake forest handyman: Homeowners beware of the low price! - 10/26/10 04:06 PM
I'm seeing a disturbing trend out there in the home improvement/repair industry:  competition is skyrocketing and price for the work is dropping.
Bruce Case, President of Case Institute of Remodeling, recently said that "...levels in competition have gone way up, frankly through the roof, which is unique among most industries, because most industries when there's challenging times you see less competition..."
Translation:  General Contractors that built houses are now doing repairs and remodels, those already doing remodels are now doing repairs, those doing repairs are still doing repairs, and those laid off have gotten their tool belt and gone out on … (4 comments)

wake forest handyman: Set up procedures, set up expectations, and set up success! - 09/15/10 04:14 AM
Within the last year, I read a great book for entrepreneurs:  The E Myth Revisited Why Most Small Businesses Don't Work and What to Do About It (Gerber).  I highly recommend it for any small business owner, especially if you are in your first 3 years of business.  It helped me change a lot about my business.
Some of the changes were so effective that recently, when I was sidelined for 8 weeks with an ankle injury, my business kept running and I could manage it from my kitchen table with my laptop & my phone.  Boy was I thankful I … (2 comments)

wake forest handyman: It's Saturday and Beautiful, Get Outside! - 09/04/10 08:36 AM
OK, I admit it.  I'm writing this from inside.  I do have a laptop, but I hate taking a computer outside.  So I'll follow my own advice and go outside soon...
But we have a 2 day reprieve from the 90s here in Wake Forest, NC, and I hope folks are enjoying it!  It feels like Fall, and I took the family out to Blue Jay Point earlier today.  The 3 kids that can run (1 is an infant) were all over that playground and having a great time.  If you've never been there you can find it at this page.  … (4 comments)

wake forest handyman: How to Make Your Business Worth More - 08/31/10 04:22 AM
I had a customer call me today, and not actually for our services.  But to get a referral.  I love it!
Everytime the phone rings with someone calling us to ask for a referral it means two things to me:
They remember us!  We must have done good work and we're in their mind. They trust us!  This is probably why they remember us in the first place. I always consider it a compliment when someone calls us to ask for a referral.  And I consider it making my business worth more, to me and to my customer.  If we're their … (3 comments)

wake forest handyman: Too Many Requests = Happy Stress - 08/30/10 09:57 AM
I'm back from a week's vacation to Emerald Isle with my family.  It was a blast, and the kids loved playing in the surf.  Digging up mole crabs (sand fleas to some of you folks) and coquina clams was a blast as well!
And now I'm back, and it's full throttle as if we never took a day off. Wow!  I'm a little overwhelmed and trying to work through the back log.  I did respond to some inquiries over the vacation, but mostly to existing business.
But it it a little stressful, and I will certainly have enough work to carry … (4 comments)
