Of Course, Bathrooms, Roof Repairs, Painting, Kitchens, But Also The Human Element!!
- Written by Dyck Dewid
This site is intended to help you match-up what is important to you in hiring a contractor, showing what my company has to offer- including its principles, skills and history of integrity and care. In addition to kitchen and bathroom remodeling, home improvement, and repair, I focus on the human elements of working with people... the creative aspects such as usable and aesthetic design. And of course the technical aspects of right construction, e.g. green, sustainable, healthy, efficient.
Like in my business, I am continually making changes to this site to help improve it to deepen your understanding of my standard and often superior practices, processes and accomplishments. This is another way of answering your question, does Hands-On Contracting have value to me? This First Edition Web Site is now getting polished and becoming more complete.
My experience informs me in Renovating, Repairing, Remodeling Kitchens, Baths, Additions or any project, the most important consideration is that Customer and Contractor are a good match. It is from here we intentionally start building the foundation of a mutually beneficial project, and perhaps a long term relationship. A solid foundation is no accident.
If you don't read much to start and want to just look at Before and After pictures Under Project Examples, that's just fine! But, please come back later to read more. You will find my communications are transparent-- nothing hidden from view. And you should easily be able to check this out on the web and at the BBB or NC Attorney General. The research is worth the effort, and since I don't have anything to hide I'm all for it! In fact, the deeper you go, the more you will discover noteworthy accomplishments and accolades (that I am too modest to list, and don't even remember many).
Incidentally, with the growth of Social Media, it is becoming easier to truely 'see' someone or a business as they really are. Tools like Inside919.com, LinkedIn.com, Dyck's Twitter.com, Facebook.com (Facebook business 'Pages'), and along with these, Blogs and Comments text is often pulled up by searching the web on a person's name. So, though it's not impossible, it's becoming difficult for the less sincere, less competent, less honorable, and sharks to hide when you start putting all this together.

In cold weather be sure to disconnect your hoses from outdoor spigots to prevent bursting your water line. If it happens, you may not find out until you try to use the spigot. Listen for the added hiss of a leak during use, inside the wall. Much better to prevent it. More to it... is wall of spigot unheated, remote or partially heated? Does weather stay below freezing for more than a day (with no thaw)? Think!... and understand the physics.
