Joe Prin Remodeling, LLC is a full service remodeling and repair company registered and insured in the State of Idaho #RCE 23530. I provide all aspects of interior and exterior residential home makeovers and improvements. My specialties include kitchen and baths, room additions, window and door replacements, decks, outdoor living areas, and conversions and modifications to allow you to live in your home longer as age or medical needs require. Plus a lot more. If you are in doubt if I can help you, please ask. If your project is not within my skill set or abilities, I am happy to refer you to someone I know that can help you out.
In 1993 I took on my first remodeling job. I still enjoy each and every day being a contractor and providing my skill and services to people. I get my contentment and satisfaction from being able to provide my customers with what they want and desire of their homes. I am often asked if I can do simple handyman work. Yes. I started my business doing this and will not stop doing “the small things.” It is a great way to introduce myself to new customers and to still be able to help out past clients too.
As the owner of JPR, I would invite you to contact me with your thoughts and ideas for your next home project. Even if you are not quite ready to get started. I offer consultations prior to official quotes or estimates so that you can get a feel for alternative ideas or what areas you may need to think about a bit longer. These services are billed at $50 per hour.
So that you know how I structure my business relationships, I have included the following information. This is the wording that appears in every construction contract I join into with my customers. Please read this even if you choose not to hire me. There are elements included here that you should be asking of any contractor working on your home.
Call us at 208-573-1082 or use the handy web contact form.
Thank you for inviting us to look at your project. As per your descriptions, our conversations, and/or discussions in your home, the following project summary and cost projection are what we are providing prices on at this time and the items that Joe Prin Remodeling (JPR) will address should you choose to hire us to be your contractor.
Prior to getting into the specifics of your project, we must ask you to read all of the following information. IT IS TO YOUR ADVANTAGE to read this material so that a full understanding of your job and what you are paying for is communicated.
It is our business philosophy to provide you the customer with the highest quality of service and product at a price that is fair to both of us. We hope to earn your trust and satisfaction. We also look forward to you referring us on to your friends and associates for work they may need to have done.
This may sound strange to read but JPR is in business to make a profit. By being a profitable company, should you need us again, or to back up our work with our warranty, we will be there for you. Without making a profit, we soon would be gone like so many contractors before us.
JPR is fully insured for your protection with liability and workers compensation insurance. Our Certificates of Insurance are available to you on request.
The following is how we calculate the time and materials for your job.
Included in your invoices will be charges for the following:
The most costly thing that can happen to you is to make significant changes once the work has begun. Sometimes this is unavoidable and we understand and will do our best to work with the changes. If there are however, material changes, returns, new purchases, scheduling adjustments, cancellations, or special ordered materials, you should expect to be billed for the added time and materials needed to execute the change. Careful planning and a commitment to the plan are the best strategies to keep the costs down. All changes will be discussed with you as to their financial impact on the project. In most cases, a written change order will be provided for signature.
Cautionary Note – Pricing out a remodeling or repair job is nothing more than educated, professional guesswork. There is often no practical way to know what is behind walls, under floors, and what quality of work has been done by others in times past. The pricing we have provided here has been prepared in good faith but is by no means final. Therefore, while we fully intend to complete the desired work at the prices provided, the actual cost of your job could change. Should this occur, we will fully disclose and discuss with you the options available and their associated additional costs. Likewise, it is not uncommon for good things to happen when we have accounted for worse. In this event, we reduce our billing by the appropriate amount of savings you have realized.
JPR guarantees it’s workmanship and installations and that of any and all of its subcontractors for a period of one full calendar year following substantial project completion.
We cannot and will not be your agent in claims arising from the failure of any materials or products that you have purchased and supplied to the job yourself. You will be responsible for handling warranty claims on materials, supplies, products, appliances, fixtures and the like, that you supply to the job. Please keep all of your receipts and documentation on these items.
A deposit may be required on larger projects to secure schedule time well in advance of the start of work and/or for material or subcontractor prepayments. This amount will be listed as “Project Deposit” on the cost sheet(s) of this document. Deposits are not refundable should project be canceled at any time after deposit is paid.
With your signature or by allowing us to begin work, you have accepted the terms and explanations of this agreement. You authorize us to order materials, schedule subcontractors, and make purchases on behalf of your project.
Special Order items and large amounts of materials (over $750) must be paid for in advance and may be included in. Invoices for materials and labor will be issued weekly (usually Fridays), or at the end of the project if its duration is less than one week. Payment is expected at that time (or usually on Monday).
Should you terminate this agreement, for any reason, prior to job completion, all work finished or in progress, expenses accrued, full administrative and overhead charges, materials and their associated mark ups purchased or ordered, along with a 10% of job penalty ($150 minimum), will become due for payment on presentation of your final invoice.
