So you want to know how to become a rehabbing expert with little to no experience? You’ve come to the right place. Not everyone was born with the knack for tools or has the necessary skills to actually do good work with hand tools and power tools. It takes a lot of trial and error and practice to get good at working with power tools and with performing feats of skillful miracles on projects around the house. Even for those who have had practice with tools, it requires a person with exceptional skills to pass their work off as professional grade.
So, what can you do then if you’re not that talented in the tool departments? First, you need to find someone who is a talented craftsman. This might require networking online or look around for a skilled tradesman. Perhaps there’s someone in your family or someone you’ve worked with in the past that might fit this bill? It’s important that you pull in someone who has the skills needed to dig into a project and finish it. Once you find this person, you’ll need to motivate him (or her) into working with you as a partner. It would be ideal if this person knew of a crew or other motivated individuals who could be helpful on a job site. The more partners the less each payout, but the possibility grows for expanding the business.
Once you find a key partner, you need to start educating yourself on how much things cost. You need to familiarize yourself with wholesale catalogs and with home building stores and DIY stores. Start with a room, perhaps a kitchen, and price out how much it will cost for parts to replace sinks, counters, plumbing, cabinets, hardware, lighting and lighting fixtures as well as a garbage disposal too. Break out each project into cost levels and price out a low-cost solution, a medium-cost solution, and an upper-end solution. You’ll find that changing out quality parts for low-end parts is how you differentiate the bids for a customer.
This concept goes for each and every project you look at, each project can be built or put together cheaply or with high-end and quality parts. Understanding the parts and costs will get you to where you can begin with estimating a project, then adding on labor costs. This is where your partner needs to provide a labor cost for each tier that you provide him. This is then only the beginning. look at, each project can be built or put together cheaply or with high-end and quality parts.
