A Win / Win Business Model

renovations-3Doing business with WiZoD Renovations is based on a “Win / Win” business model. That means nobody loses.

For example, it’s commonly known that renovations tend to be fraught with all kinds of structural, electrical, and plumbing “surprises”. That’s because it’s often impossible to know what’s inside a wall, under a floor, or behind an add-on structure. And these complications can take significantly more time and / or materials. As a result, many contractors will inflate their quoted price to cover those unforeseen events. This appears reasonable but only if those complications DO occur. However, what if the project goes smoother than expected? What if those complications either do not occur, or have a relatively minor impact on the project? In this case, the contractor will WIN and you will LOSE – because you’ve now paid for work and / or materials that were never needed.

A Win / Win approach means that with WiZoD Renovations you will get an estimate of the work, with a cap – a maximum billable amount. For larger projects, you will receive documented reports at regular intervals. These reports contain “Actual vs. Plan” graphs, showing you where the project is “tracking” for materials, labor and overall cost. That enables us to predict potential cost overruns, talk about what’s happening and make any necessary decisions ahead of time. In the event the job goes smoother than expected, you will be billed LESS – because there was less work and / or materials involved. That means you pay only for the work that was done.

Some people are a little skeptical about whether such an old fashioned value system still exists. As a result, I encourage you to talk with my clients – and find out for yourself.

A Word About Cost

Most people want to get the best value for their money. To do that, folks will search the Net or talk with friends, asking “…so what does a (bathroom, kitchen, basement, etc.) renovation cost these days?” And although well meaning, that approach is similar to asking “…so what does a car cost these days?” And the only true answer to that question is: “It depends.”

Wanting to save money wherever possible, some people will simply take the cheapest quote and go with that. However, that approach does not consider the impact of professionalism, competence, and the lasting value of workmanship. For example, a new ceramic floor might be quoted by Contractor A at $2,000, while Contractor B estimates $3,000. So why such a difference in price? Shouldn’t you choose the cheaper one? After all, isn’t a floor just a floor?

No, it’s not. How will you feel about the $1,000 you saved when you walk across that floor everyday… seeing the crooked grout lines and feeling the uneven surface?

So do the right thing, and enjoy the great feeling of a job well-done.

About Testimonials

renovations-5I’ve noticed that most websites post testimonial quotes, and maybe that’s a great way to instill trust in potential customers.

But from my perspective, they’re just words.

If I were a potential customer, I would want to talk with a “real” person – because I would have my own questions to ask. And besides, talking with an actual customer gives me the opportunity to get a “feel” for just how happy – or unhappy – that person was with WiZoD Renovations.

That’s why there are no “testimonials” on this website. Instead, I will give you actual phone numbers of actual WiZoD Renovations customers – and encourage you to talk with them.

Then you can decide for yourself.

A.   Yes. VISA and Mastercard are accepted via mobile payment terminal.


Q.   Are you insured?

A.   To avoid passing on unnecessary costs to my customers, I will carry the necessary insurance depending on the size and duration of the job.
