About Urban Handyman

After 20+ years working in the industry Nick Jardine founded Urban Handyman Inc. in 2009. Nick’s goal was to provide customers with quality craftsmanship and excellent service and he knew he couldn’t do that without someone taking care of the office, scheduling, and organizing his projects upfront. He collaborated and partnered with Brenda Blanchard who gained experience in design and renovation after buying and renovating properties for rental and accommodation. Nick and Brenda are both well versed with all aspects of the trades, building codes, permits, and dealing with inspectors, designers, architects, engineers, and blue print reading. Their commitment and pride in workmanship and customer satisfaction is the reason Urban Handyman has grown to be such a well-known and highly respected builder throughout the Metro Vancouver area.

We utilize the services of architects, tradesmen and designers, all lending our expertise to provide you with the best team and best experience possible as we work together to make your home remodelling vision a reality. We will work with you every step of the way. We can provide you with renderings that incorporate your ideas with our suggestions, so you can visualize what your project could look like when complete.

 

Where We Work

Over the years, we have had the chance to work with clients from across the Metro Vancouver and Fraser Valley area. Specifically, we are catering to Delta, Burnaby, New Westminster, Surrey, Richmond, and Vancouver. Urban Handyman holds an inter-municipal business license to operate in all of these communities.

At Urban Handyman we believe that a detailed written proposal is the only way to come to a final agreement on which contractor to hire for the job. Since putting together a detailed renovation quote can take upwards of several hours for a contractor to price materials and labour and quote sub-trades we like to provide you with an estimated proposal up front to ensure it fits your budget. If so, we proceed along a 5-step process to provide you with a written fixed quote proposal.

Step 1 – We like to meet you on-site to see your project and discuss your vision so that we can get a clear idea of how to fulfill your renovation needs. Then we put together an estimated budget and discuss this with you. If the cost is within your budget then we can proceed to the written stage.

Step 2 – We put together a written proposal to document the details of the scope of work as we had discussed and source out materials and costs specifically associated with your renovation and present this to you. If we are your chosen contractor we continue….

Step 3 – We go over the details to make the project fit the budget or the budget to fit the project; since this often changes the scope of work we cannot put a final fixed cost until we have reviewed the project at this stage.

Step 4 – We present you with a final detailed scope and a FIXED COST BUDGET to go with that scope. If no further changes are made to the scope then this is the final cost you will pay, no hidden costs, no unforeseen elements that haven’t been explained to you upfront for which a contingency is set aside. It is a fixed cost budget so you know what you will be paying before your project begins.

Step 5 – We take a small deposit of $500 that can be paid by credit card before we secure you a spot on our schedule. Once the deposit is received we schedule your job and give you a start date and estimated finish date. Construction scheduling isn’t always easy but we do our best to keep everything on track. If changes occur based on customer change, we like to do a change order often in the form of an email and advise you of costs up front and have you approve them to help stay on budget at all times and keep you informed along the way.

Payment schedules continue as installments based on work completed. Exceptions include product purchased on account or custom ordered products, then payment is scheduled as purchased.

Renovation Installment Payments usually look like this, but of course depend on the size and cost of the renovation.

  1. 1. Deposit – Schedule Start Date
  2. 2. Demolition – Installment Payment Collected
  3. 3. Framing – Installment Payment Collected
  4. 4. Rough-In for Plumbing & Electrical – Installment Payment Collected
  5. 5. Drywall and Painting – Installment Payment Collected
  6. 6. Finish – Final Payment Collected
  7. 7. 10% Hold Back Paid Upon Customer Satisfaction

The number of installment payments depends accordingly on your individual renovation but the process is the same.
