KGR Contractors http://kgrcontractors.com Tue, 29 Aug 2017 12:42:02 +0000 en-US hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.9.8 Those Pennies Count http://kgrcontractors.com/those-pennies-count/ http://kgrcontractors.com/those-pennies-count/#respond Mon, 28 Aug 2017 22:37:50 +0000 http://kgrcontractors.com/?p=999 Those Pennies Count
Everything is getting more and more expensive these days. Just when you think you’ve got your business budget worked out and showing a livable profit – wham! Here comes another increase.
Contracting is a competitive business, and sometimes just a matter of a few dollars can make the difference between winning or losing that new contract.
So how can you cut the budget without cutting necessary expenses?
One way is to carefully examine those tiny expenses. Are you stocking gourmet coffee for the office staff?  Supplying expensive ink pens when cheaper ballpoint pens will do as well? Have you gotten new printing quotes lately from several print shops? Is there a more economical source for those appreciation baskets you send to your best clients? Are there ways to make your advertising dollars go farther?
Those small increments may not seem to make much difference, but they do.
Of course, bringing in more business is the best way to help that bottom line. That’s where KGR Contracting comes in. We’ve got the exclusive leads you need for new clients – without having to share those leads with every other contractor in town.
So after you’ve got your contracting budget in shape, contact us for new clients to help grow those numbers.

Windows! http://kgrcontractors.com/windows/ http://kgrcontractors.com/windows/#respond Thu, 22 Jun 2017 14:41:52 +0000 http://kgrcontractors.com/?p=949 Nothing makes more of an immediate impression of your home than your windows. Beautiful windows enhance the look of your home, making it inviting and adding value.
Are they single-pane and so old they let the snow and water in? Are there cracks in the glass that make your house look haunted? Are some of the windows painted in or simply stuck so that you can neither raise them or lower them? Are the screens ill fitting or just long gone? Were they last cleaned about the time of the Korean War?
Today’s windows are more than a pane of glass in a frame. You have a choice of multiple panes suitable for your section of the country.  Many of them are designed to unfold toward the inside, making cleaning a simple task. Special locks help keep would-be thieves away. Design wise today’s windows come in a rainbow of colors and styles, from multiple panes to ceiling height sheets of glass. And perhaps most important, they can save you a lot of money on your utility bills, so much money that they can usually pay for themselves in a short period of time.
If all these choices confuse you, never fear. KGR Contractors know their stuff and can advise you on the best styles for your home. They won’t try to sell you quadruple-pane glass when all you really need is simple double-pane. They’re experienced in all phases of removing your old windows and replacing them with new ones.
Whether you’re looking to replace one window or all the windows, KGR Contractors can do the job. They are licensed, experienced, and insured. From beginning to cleaning up the mess at the end, they’ll make you glad of your decision. And in no time you’ll be seeing things clearly again,

Remodeling http://kgrcontractors.com/remodeling/ http://kgrcontractors.com/remodeling/#respond Tue, 20 Jun 2017 12:37:53 +0000 http://kgrcontractors.com/?p=947 Contractors have gotten a bad rap because they frequently have to charge more for unexpected things or because they tend to start a job and then vanish for weeks at time – leaving the customer confused and angry.
Here are some ways to show that you’re one of the good contractors.
Be scrupulously honest with your estimates. Your clients won’t appreciate being given the low-ball cost when in reality the work will end up costing twice as much. It is not always true that homeowners only choose the cheapest estimate; the smart homeowner knows that quality costs a little more but pays off in the long run.
Communicate, communicate, communicate!
Tell your client why his choice of cabinets won’t fit the wall space, and be prepared to offer practical suggestions.
If you say you will have one of your employees start the work on Monday, be sure that employee is scheduled and actually shows up to begin the work on Monday.
Make sure all your employees know what’s going on with the client’s remodeling project; this helps avoid misunderstandings and confusion.
Technology can help you and your employees keep things organized during a remodeling project. A good project app can keep you on track.
When your client calls, either answer the call immediately or call them back as soon as possible. Not returning calls will make your client angry and frustrated, which will make your job that much harder.  Worse, your client will tell all their friends who are thinking of having some work done on their house.
You’ll find that your clients are a lot more reasonable if you keep them in the loop about what’s happening or not happening to their remodeling project. A two-minute phone call can save you weeks of confusion and mistrust.
Let KGR Contracting find great clients for you to treat right!

Remodeling Your Kitchen http://kgrcontractors.com/__trashed/ http://kgrcontractors.com/__trashed/#respond Tue, 20 Jun 2017 12:29:19 +0000 http://kgrcontractors.com/?p=944 You’ve finally had enough of your kitchen. The design is old, the appliances are ancient, you have maybe six square inches of counter space, the floor has grease stains a century old, and the cabinets are about to fall off the wall.
Time to remodel the kitchen.
Once you’ve made the decision to remodel you’ll be tempted to just contact one of KGR’s licensed remodeling experts and them take over.
But wait! Spend a few minutes writing down what exactly you want in your kitchen. Better space flow? A new island with a sink and faucet?  A refrigerator big enough for your  family? A stove with two ovens? Think about the areas you spend the most time and how you’d like those areas to work. How much money do you have budgeted?
Then choose one of KGR’s remodeling experts to share your ideas. Your KGR expert can show you new ways to arrange the appliances to free up space or discuss the design of new cabinetry so you’ll never have to risk all the pots and pans falling onto your head when you open the cabinet door.
You’ll also want to discuss costs. Have a realistic budget in mind, and be prepared for unexpected expenses and delays. No, your contractor is not trying to cheat you; it’s just that no one really knows what lies beneath the flooring or that the wiring was installed in the 1940s and could turn dangerous at any moment.
Be clear about your expectations and put those in writing in your contract. Be specific.
Contact KGR Contracting today. Good things take time, but before you know it you’ll have the perfect kitchen you’ve always dreamed of.

Finding a Good Plumber http://kgrcontractors.com/finding-good-plumber/ http://kgrcontractors.com/finding-good-plumber/#respond Thu, 18 May 2017 13:26:08 +0000 http://kgrcontractors.com/?p=908 The kitchen faucet has been leaking for weeks now, no matter how hard you twist the handle. 
Drip, drip, drip.
You’re worried a professional plumber will charge you a fortune, which you don’t have, so you called your third cousin who works on his own plumbing. But he never has time to show up.
That nice man who lives next door offered to help, but you don’t quite feel comfortable inviting him in.
Drip, drip, drip.
So you Google and you ask friends, and maybe you can narrow it down to one or two possible candidates.
Help is here! Our plumbers are experienced dealing with everything from the smallest loose washer to the biggest water main breaks. There’s no phantom kitchen leak that can fool their expertise. And that expertise means you’re paying the best possible price for A-One professional service — most likely for far less than you’re imagining.
Contact KGR Contracting now. Let us find you the best professional for your needs.
And stop that drip, drip, drip.

Easy, yes; smart, no.
The successful business owner sets goals for their business. They can be monetary goals, such as “My company will have revenue of $30,000 this fiscal year;” or basic number goals, like “I will complete a dozen new jobs in the next eighteen months.” There might be another measurement you prefer.
What is important is to be clear about what your road ahead looks like. Only you can decide what success means to you, and what successful indicators look along the way.
Once you’ve set your goal, it’s much easier to consider the type of jobs to pursue or plan how many hours to set to complete those jobs.  An hour or so spent now clarifying you goals could end up saving you weeks of time and confusion.
Remember – if you don’t know where you’re going, how will you know when you’ve arrived?

You’ve got to meet payroll, adhere to regulations, and maintain standards. A lot of people depend on you. A long dry spell of no work can crush the confidence of even the best contractor.
Let KGR take that worry off your hands. We provide you with leads that have already been screened and are waiting to hear from you and no one else but you. If you’ve tried other lead services, you know those leads are sent to several contractors, forcing you to compete against other contractors – maybe even some of your colleagues. You’re basically throwing away your hard-earned money for worthless leads.
You work hard. Let KGR Contracting work hard for you, so you don’t have to worry about the next job.

It’s very easy. Keeping one thing here and putting an extra over there, just until you can find a place for what you bought yesterday.  And before you know it things are out of hand. Watching just one episode of Hoarders can show you how disastrous the consequences can be.
It’s also a very common occurrence. You don’t have to suffer from some dread psychological problem to let things get out of control.  It happens to the best of us.
Take a look around your house. Are you overwhelmed by all your stuff?  Does it seem you can’t make dent with cleaning and putting things in order?
Get in touch with one of our cleaning and organizing experts. They can see things from a fresh perspective and help you clear out what needs clearing out and efficiently store what you keep.

Why Power Wash the Outside of Your House? http://kgrcontractors.com/power-wash-outside-house/ http://kgrcontractors.com/power-wash-outside-house/#respond Thu, 18 May 2017 13:21:28 +0000 http://kgrcontractors.com/?p=899 When I bought my first house I knew it needed exterior painting. So I trotted on over to the good paint store and told them what I wanted in terms of color and coverage.
The salesman asked if I had washed house yet. I confess I laughed in his face. Did he think I was so stupid that I’d go around washing the outside of my house?
Actually, I was the stupid one, once he explained to me the value of washing your house.
Your house sits outside in all kinds of weather, collecting dust and dirt and often bits of mold. It’s filthy. If you paint over the dirt the paint won’t adhere as well as it should, and you end up wasting money and having to repaint sooner.
So hire yourself a power washer contractor. Our power washer folks have the right equipment and experience to scrub your house to its near original state of cleanliness.
Then, your painter will have an easier time of the work, the color will more closely match the color it’s supposed to be, and the paint job will last a lot longer – saving you money and aggravation.
We have several great power washer contractors. Find them here (for free).
