This customer bought their dream weekend home knowing that it needed some maintenance work. But there was one challenge: they lived four hours away, and so it would be difficult to schedule the bid, the work, manage the work, etc. We explained that a large percentage of our homes are second homes, and we are used to doing these jobs often times without ever seeing the owner. The payment terms are safe, and beyond that, we let our referrals do our talking for us.
After calling some of our referrals and seeing pictures of our work, they knew we’d be the team that could get the home back into the best shape possible and be there down the road when they had questions.
We stripped the home, washed it, stripped the decks, borated, sanded the entire home, removed all wood doors and refinished, did construction repairs, wrapped exposed log ends in copper, and finally stained with our Cedar Dark oil based stain. They love the translucent finish without the opaque build up of an unnatural looking stain product. We’ll be back in four years for a light wash and re-‐coat!
